5.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Huawei Mate 8
Huawei P9

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.

6.Has out-of-order execution
Huawei Mate 8
