December’s Top Performing Flagship Smartphones: Xiaomi 14 Series Makes the List!

Entering 2024, the domestic mobile phone evaluation organization, Antutu, unveiled the performance ranking of Android flagship smartphones for December 2023. According to Antutu, the scores listed are the average of all performance measurements for the model during the month, not the highest score. It is common to see fluctuations of around 100,000 when comparing the score with the same model of your phone. The specifications listed are the highest valid scores for that model. Hence, if some models’ highest configuration does not appear, it may be due to insufficient valid benchmark data. Please note, the data covers only the domestic smartphone market and is collected from December 1 to December 31, 2023.


More specifically, in Antutu’s Android flagship smartphone performance ranking for December 2023, OnePlus 12 and Vivo X100 ranked first and second respectively. On the Antutu platform, these two smartphones scored an average of 2,188,135 and 2,186,019, respectively.
