AnTuTu is the go-to benchmark test in smartphones, with companies often advertising their phones’ respective scores. Every month, AnTuTu releases a ranking list; here are the most powerful gaming phones as per March 2022.

  • Cost: $1000
  • Battery: 4800 mAh
  • Processor: Qualcomm SM8450 Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8 - 12GB
  • Display: 144 hz, 6.7-inch 1080 x 2400p
  • Main Camera: 50 MP

Motorola Edge 30 one-ups the competition by having a 144hz display, but at 1080p, it is more of a win-lose situation. Unlike other devices, this phone has an always-144hz display mode that eats through the battery, though the 4800 mAh capacity should help you last throughout the day.


1) Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro - AnTuTu Score: 981496

  • RAM: 8 - 12GB

Xiaomi have nailed their flagship smartphones this year with both of them making the list. With the highest AnTuTu score, the Mi 12 Pro will cover all your gaming needs and more. Despite a better telephoto camera and a slightly larger battery, it is a minor upgrade unless the screen size, at 6.73 inches, is a dealmaker.


All the top smartphones have very similar specifications, with all of them packing the same chipset, Qualcomm SM8450 Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, which is the fastest the market offers at the moment. Without a doubt, these scores will be topped by newer phones, but today, on paper, these are the fastest smartphones you can buy.
