There's no getting around it; the iPhone 7 has scored 178,397 points in the AnTuTu Benchmark test and that's significantly more than the 140,288 points which the current topper, the OnePlus 3 scores on an average. There is no doubt that this score is extremely impressive and beats all the Android competition hands down. The Apple A10 chip is indeed a beast as it turns out. However, there is a small detail that most people seem to be overlooking in this particular case.
The iPhone 7 will probably have a screen resolution of 750 × 1334 pixels, stretched out on a 4.7-inch display with a ppi of 326. This means that the A10 chip had to push a lot less pixels while going through the AnTuTu benchmark than ANY of the other Android phones on the top ten list. The minimum resolution that is considered standard for a flagship device these days is 1080 × 1920 pixels, with some major manufacturers like Samsung opting for 1440p QHD AMOLED panels since last year. While it is a completely different issue that a flagship smartphone with a very premium price tag sports only a 750 × 1334 resolution, things will make a bit more sense when we see the iPhone 7 Plus' (1080p expected) score on AnTuTu when it comes out, or maybe even sooner.
