The team of the popular AnTuTu benchmark has published a fresh ranking of the most productive smartphones based on the Android operating system in the international market. It differs markedly from the ranking compiled by AnTuTu in China.
According to experts from the AnTuTu team, in October, manufacturers almost did not launch flagships, mostly low-cost models before the upcoming sales at the end of the year. As a result, the changes compared to September are not too large, although they are.
The top 4 remained the same – the first place belongs to Nubia Red Magic 6 Pro with 858 734 points, followed by Asus ROG Phone 5 with 821 339 points, Realme GT with 810 510 and iQOO 7 with an average score of 801 238.
But then the differences begin. OnePlus 9 Pro (788,258) managed to climb to fifth place from eighth, Xiaomi Mi 11i took sixth instead of ninth (782,494), in seventh – Asus Zenfone 8 Mini, which took 10th place in September (782,463), in eighth – Mi 11 Ultra (780 181) instead of the previous sixth. The ninth and tenth places were taken by Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G (774 3020) and Sony Xperia 1 III 5G (768 303), which failed to enter the top ten in September.
The entire rating is occupied by models based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
Statistics collected from October 1 to October 31, 2021. The AnTuTu ranking uses average, not the highest scores. For each smartphone, the results of at least 1000 tests were taken into account – models with fewer tests are not included in the rating.
Windows 11 introduces third-party widgets
Microsoft has released a new test build of the Windows 11 operating system in the Developer (Dev) channel.
The assembly is available to members of the Windows Insiders program. The main new feature in build 25217 is the long-awaited support for third-party widgets.
Windows Insiders can now start developing and testing widgets for their apps. Widgets can be added to the widget board, which is currently only populated with web content offered by Microsoft.
Because this is a preview, developers are not yet able to submit widget-enabled apps to the Microsoft Store. Accordingly, users cannot simply find applications with widgets right now.
Elon Musk accused Twitter of recklessness: the company intends to continue to sue
Billionaire Elon Musk, who plans to acquire Twitter, accused the social network’s executives of reckless actions that jeopardize the completion of the deal.
Musk’s advisers sent a notice on Twitter that the entrepreneur intends to complete the deal on the terms stipulated in the agreement dated April 25, 2022. Musk’s lawyers are pushing for the deal to be canceled in Delaware court, scheduled for October 17, in order to raise the necessary funding without hindrance and complete it as early as October 28.
Surprisingly, they (Twitter) are insisting on continuing this lawsuit, recklessly putting the deal at risk and putting the interests of their shareholders at risk.
In April, Musk offered $44 billion for Twitter, but then demanded to check the company’s data that the number of fake accounts used, among other things, to send spam, did not exceed 5%. According to Musk, the social network underestimated the number of such accounts, and also did not provide sufficient information when requested. He was also dissatisfied with the personnel policy of the company. Later, on July 8, Musk notified Twitter that he was refusing to buy it. The social network filed a lawsuit against the businessman in a Delaware court.
The other day, Elon Musk said that the purchase of Twitter is “an accelerator for creating X, an application for everything.” The service may be very similar to WeChat, the Chinese super app that the billionaire openly admired and grew out of a mini-internet messaging service with a billion user base.
Pavel Durov’s statement about the danger of WhatsApp called the head of the analytical center Zecurion a fight with a competitor
The head of the Zecurion analytical center, Vladimir Ulyanov, said that the words of Telegram founder Pavel Durov about the dangers of using WhatsApp are PR for his messenger, and also added that such statements should be treated with a certain degree of skepticism.
Any programs that we use, both for ordinary users and corporate ones, are all vulnerable in one way or another. If now we do not know about the existence of any vulnerabilities, this does not mean that they do not exist at all.
Vladimir Ulyanov said that messenger vulnerabilities always have a human factor, and their detection is a matter of time.
You should not assume that there is one messenger that is absolutely unique in terms of device and security, and the other is full of holes and bad, and you should not use it. No, this statement is rather made within the framework of competition.
The head of the Zecurion analytical center also noted that in any application there are settings that allow you to increase its security level. He reminded that you should not follow dubious links sent from an unknown addressee.
Earlier, Pavel Durov said that WhatsApp has been a surveillance tool for 13 years.
