Besides releasing the list of top 10 best performing flagship phones for the month of March, AnTuTu also released the list of top 10 smartphones with the best performance-price ratio for smartphones under 1,499 Yuan (US$211).
These devices are ranked according to the performance-price ratio which is basically calculated by diving the device’s AnTuTu benchmark score against it’s official pricing in China. Surely, there are some who remain doubtful regarding the credibility of the benchmark scores, but it still serves as a pretty good reference over the years.
