On February 6, AnTuTu announced the price-performance list of Android phones for January. Due to the general increase in the price of 5G smartphones, after recalculation, AnTuTu decided to optimize the range from 0-1499 yuan ($224) to 0-1999 yuan ($299).
At this point, the AnTuTu cost performance list is divided into five lists of a 0-1999 yuan ($299), 2000-2999 yuan ($300-449), 3000-3999 yuan ($450-599), 4000-4999 yuan ($600-749), and 5000 yuan ($750).

According to AnTuTu’s analysis, the price range of 0-1999 yuan is basically covered by 5G smartphones. At the same time, it indicates that the price of 5G smartphones has begun to drop. It is expected that this year will cover all price points. And 4G smartphones will also withdraw from the top ten list over time.
