    Google Pixel 2
    Google Pixel 2 XL
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8
    Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Exynos 8890 Octa)

    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
    Google Pixel 2
    Google Pixel 2 XL

    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.Has laser autofocus
    Google Pixel 2
    Google Pixel 2 XL
