4.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Huawei Honor Note 8
Huawei Mate 9

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 Note 8
Huawei Mate 9

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

For example

ZTE Blade V8 16GB

2.has built-in optical image stabilization
Huawei Honor Note 8
Huawei Mate 9

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

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.widest aperture

f/2

f/2.2 & f/2.2

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
