3.Uses big.LITTLE technology
HTC U12+
Huawei GX8
LG Optimus Vu II

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

6.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
HTC U12+
Huawei GX8
LG Optimus Vu II

A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
