6.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Alcatel Idol 5s

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.

For example

Vivo NEX 2

5.widest aperture

f/2

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

Best

Vivo NEX 2

1.3 & 1.8 & 1.8f

6.pixel size

1.25µm

The pixel size measures the length of the individual photodetectors (pixels) in the image sensor. Larger pixels can capture more light, providing better image quality and improved low-light performance.
