        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
        Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

        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.

        Samsung Galaxy Note 8
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
        Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

        The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.

        2.Has integrated graphics
        Huawei Ascend W2
        Pantech Vega No 6
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
        Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

        With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

        3.Uses big.LITTLE technology

        Samsung Galaxy Note 8
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
        Samsung Galaxy S9 (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
        Huawei Ascend W2

        Samsung Galaxy Note 8
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
        Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

        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.

        Samsung Galaxy Note 8
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
        Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

        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

        5.Has a dual-lens (or multi-lens) main camera
        Huawei Ascend W2

        Samsung Galaxy Note 8
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
        Samsung Galaxy S9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

        A dual-lens camera captures two images and overlays them. This technology creates sharper images, especially in low light conditions, and allows you to use effects such as softening the background.

        6.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
        Huawei Ascend W2
        Pantech Vega No 6
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8
        Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB
