The most powerful smartphone in 2018 in the world

In order to determine the most powerful smartphone in the world, you can take the hardware used by one or another model of the touch device as a starting point. But what if several smartphones use the same processors and memory at once? In the modern world, the power of smartphones is usually measured in points (or simply in “parrots”) using special applications. The most authoritative of them is AnTuTu Benchmark. Everything is simple: the application launches and the smartphone that scored the most points becomes the most powerful. And although formally the application cannot reflect, for example, friezes when turning pages on the desktop, this is not reflected in the total number of points, and therefore whether it is worth trusting these so-called synthetic tests, it’s up to you.

Data is relevant for October 2017.

iPhone 8 Plus

Who would doubt that the new iPhone will occupy one of the leading lines – after all, the speed of iOS is beyond praise.

It should be noted that the novelty is not such a novelty, since for the most part it resembles the predecessor of the iPhone 7 Plus – even the design has changed slightly, only the back cover is now made of glass. This, by the way, led to an increase in the weight of the device.

Among the innovations, one can note the completely new A11 Bionic processor, support for wireless charging, new body shades, True Tone (color rendering technology, first used on the iPad), updated cameras, a new amount of internal memory.
