Huawei Honor 3C Play
Huawei ShotX
LG G5 (H840)
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.

5.Has out-of-order execution
Huawei Honor 3C Play

5.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
Huawei Honor 3C Play
Huawei ShotX
LG G5 (H840)
