6.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Huawei P20 Lite
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018)

4.widest aperture

f/2.4 & f/2.2

f/1.7

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

1.3 & 1.8 & 1.8f

5.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
Huawei P20 Lite
Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018)
