Benchmark score doubles on the Moto X30 Pro buzz

Written by admin

Benchmark scoring apps serve another purpose besides bragging rights for certain smartphone owners. They can help manufacturers determine whether software changes will positively or negatively affect a handset. Benchmark apps can also be used by smartphone makers to determine how their phones stack up against the competition.

As we hinted in the previous section, a smartphone enthusiast will try to use his Daily Driver’s benchmark score to show why his current phone is better than yours. For example, the average AnTuTu score for the Pixel 6 Pro is 717,000, compared to 848,000 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Looking strictly at the numbers, you’d have to say that the iPhone 13 Pro Max is a better phone than the Pixel 6 Pro.

The upcoming Moto X30 Pro tops the AnTuTu benchmark leaderboards

But what the Benchmark tests fail to score is the phone owner’s taste. For example, someone might prefer Android over iOS, be attracted to the special Google features on the Pixel 6 Pro, or have the opportunity to get a first shot at most Android updates. So while these benchmark apps will give you a numerical answer that you might think of as a leaderboard, it doesn’t necessarily mean the higher score is the best for YOU.

The AnTuTu benchmark test measures the CPU (Central Processing Unit), GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), a phone’s memory, and the handset’s UX (user experience). The latter is determined by measuring data processing, data security, image processing and certain video tasks. Remember, the benchmark app looks at computing power in the form of speed. The app cannot measure the quality of video playback or audio streams as it is best left up to the user.

One of the most exciting new handsets coming our way later this month is Motorola’s Moto X30 Pro. It will be the first smartphone with a 200MP camera sensor and the fastest charging speed of all Motorola phone ever (125W, wired). The device will be equipped with a 6.67-inch FHD+ screen with a refresh rate of 144Hz. Under the hood is Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
Recently, we have seen that Motorola and its parent company Lenovo have leaked information on the Chinese Weibo social media page. And that’s where a post appeared with the incredible AnTuTu score of 1,114,761 for the Moto X30 Pro. The image was posted by Chen Jin, Lenovo China’s General Manager of the Mobile Department. That is arguably the highest AnTuTu score an Android device has achieved.

A gaming phone currently has the highest Android AnTuTu score

Motorola has been in tears lately and has grown to become (with parent company Lenovo) the third largest smartphone manufacturer globally and in the United States. With the Moto X30 Pro, Motorola hopes to deliver a challenger to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The currently top-ranked Android phones are the Red Magic 7 gaming phone (1,046,552), the Vivo X80 (1,000,443), Motorola Edge 30 Pro (1,000,443), Mi 12 Pro (989,730), and the Vivo X80 Pro. (987,693). At the top of the iOS/iPadOS list are the two variants of the fifth-generation iPad Pro. The 12.9-inch model scored 1,203,916 while the 11-inch model weighed 1,180,184. This is followed by the latest iPad Air tablet (1,079.942). The first iPhone on the list is the fifth iPhone 13 Pro Max (830,180).

You can’t take every AnTuTu score for granted. That’s because several companies, including OnePlus and HTC, have been busted for cheating by allowing certain phones to deliver optimized AnTuTu scores when those devices detected the app was being used. As with many things in life, be careful.
Assuming the rating for the Moto X30 Pro is legit, it’s another reason to be genuinely excited (if not excited, then intrigued) about Motorola’s upcoming flagship model.
