    4.every pixel has three subpixels
    Blackphone 2
    LG G5 (H840)

    The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

    5.Has an AMOLED display
    Blackphone 2
    LG G5 (H840)

    AMOLED displays, also known as active matrix OLED displays, offer higher refresh rates and consume less power than other types of displays.

    Huawei Honor Magic 2

    6.has an IPS screen
    Blackphone 2
    LG G5 (H840)

    IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.

    3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
    Blackphone 2
    LG G5 (H840)

    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
    Blackphone 2
    LG G5 (H840)

    Out-of-order execution is used in CPUs to make use of instruction cycles that would normally be wasted due to delays.

    2.has built-in optical image stabilization
    Blackphone 2
    LG G5 (H840)

    Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

    3.video recording (main camera)

    1080 x 30fps

    2160 x 30fps

    6.Has a dual-lens (or multi-lens) main camera
    Blackphone 2
    LG G5 (H840)
