    HomTom HT3
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
    Samsung Galaxy S7 Active
    Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

    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.

    4.Has out-of-order execution
    BlackBerry Z30
    HomTom HT3
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
