    Apple iPhone 5
    Meizu M3 Note 16GB
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835)

    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.

    5.Has out-of-order execution
    Apple iPhone 5
    Meizu M3 Note 16GB

    Apple iPhone 5
    Meizu M3 Note 16GB
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835)

    A laser autofocus system quickly determines the depth of the subject you want to focus on, allowing you to take photos much faster.

    For example

    Huawei Mate 20 X

    6.widest aperture

    f/2.4

    f/2.2

    f/2.4 & f/1.7

    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.
