    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB

    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 AMOLED display
    Motorola Moto G5S
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB

    AMOLED displays, also known as active matrix OLED displays, offer higher refresh rates and consume less power than other types of displays.

    6.has an IPS screen
    Motorola Moto G5S
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB

    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.

    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
    Motorola Moto G5S
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835) 256GB

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

    6.Has AES
