4.every pixel has three subpixels
Huawei Nova

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.

5.has an IPS screen
Huawei Nova

IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.

6.has a touch screen
Huawei Nova

You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

6.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Huawei Nova

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.widest aperture

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.

Best

Vivo NEX 2

5.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
Huawei Nova

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

6.pixel size

1.25µm

The pixel size measures the length of the individual photodetectors (pixels) in the image sensor. Larger pixels can capture more light, providing better image quality and improved low-light performance.
