      Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen.) 64GB
      Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
      Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

      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.

      3.Has integrated graphics
      Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen.) 64GB

      Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen.) 64GB
      Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
      Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

      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
      Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen.) 64GB
      Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus
      Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

      A laser autofocus system quickly determines the depth of the subject you want to focus on, allowing you to take photos much faster.
