The official title is: Antutu Report :Most Popular Smart phones (Android) 1H,2016

GSMarena simply dropped "(Android)" part for some reason.

It's not the worlds most popular smartphones. It's the worlds most benchmarked smartphones. Who are running benchmarks? Enthusiasts. So unsurprisingly the top of the list is mostly phones that are marketed to enthusiasts.

Go back to school kid. And stay anonymous. Otherwise it's going to be embarrassing for me to even be seen responding to a halfwit.

As we all know SAMSUNG is crap! Some of their commercial in Television are NOT true. And this, I think SAMSUNG paid AnTuTu.

Despite the reality people will always believe what they want to believe. This is AnTuTus view. please respect that. because these people have really made an effort to collect data and provide it us. are you simply saying you are better than these people? we can only see what is happening around us. deriving judgment based on that would not be wise. my point is if you cant do it, please respect others opinion if they have made the effort.

This list only shows the phones in which Antutu benchmark was run on and among all the phones, people with Note 5 ran Antutu benchmark the most and as a result it is ranked in 1st place. This list does not signify market share or popularity of a smartphone in general. I believe this test is fairly accurate as the Note series is mostly used by more tech savvy users and they usually run benchmarks on them. iPhones are not on the list simply because most people don't run Antutu benchmark on them. Most ios users don't care about benchmark numbers.

Looks like Americans are quite a bit smarter than the world average with 3 Nexus telephones in their list.

It's amazing how fanboys throw reasoning and surrounding data out the window in an attempt to not face reality.

By the way, comparisons are not segregated to specific platforms. Speeds can be compared regardless of OS, which is how we know the iphone 6S is faster than every phone on this list, except the S7 Edge, to which it is slightly slower.

Anonymous, 10 Jul 2016Does anyone know what the heck this guy is trying to say?What I'm saying is that for Apple/iOS/iPhone device all you need to do to get the best performing device is to buy the latest device of a given screen size, right now the 6s/6s+/se. All are powered by A9s SOC, manufactured by either TSMC or Samsung Semiconductors, with minute differences in performance and battery endurance that won't matter in real world. No need to use Antutu to figure that out.

On Android, you have MediaTeks, Exynos, Kirin or Snapdragons on the SOC side, from a slew of manufacturers in a bunch of sizes, different screen technologies and form factors (clamshell and sliders, you wont find those running iOS). Here you DO NEED Antutu to tell which is faster. Which is why there so much use of Antutu for Android devices and so little use in iOS. Ergo, no iPhone on the list.
