Step 2: Compare the phones based on their key features

RAM: RAM (Random Access Memory) is used for short-term memory on phones. When we use an app, instead of writing data to the phone's internal storage or SD card (long-term memory), the data is stored in the device's RAM so it can be recalled quickly and easily when it's needed. RAM has two main attributes that affect system's performance of the phone: memory capacity and memory speed. Generally, the more RAM the better.

1st Finding: If you are a serious photo collector or game player, 4GB one is better than 3GB. That is, it definitely worth to buy HONOR 9N or HONOR 7X.

Chipset & SoC: A chipset is a group of interdependent motherboard chips or integrated circuits that allows the CPU, microprocessor, memory and external devices to interact. SoC is short for System on a Chip, which comprises the CPU, chipset, graphics card, memory controller and other core components of a system, all on a single chip. Your camera, screen resolution, apps and OS can only improve if the chipset/ SoC gets more powerful. In the market, Kirin and Qualcomm chipset families are dependable.

2nd Finding: Compared with other two chipsets, the Kirin 659 is the best one, which means it will speed up the performance of the HONOR 9N, 9 Lite, and 7X.

OS: Android operating system, created by Google, has been the world's most widely used smartphone platform. For HONOR phones, there is Emotion UI (or EMUI for short) which was based on Android, and does more. Android's latest version is Android 8 Oreo (Latest release 8.1.0 / August 24, 2018), while the EMUI 8.2.0 is the latest update for EMUI.

3rd Finding: Till now, all of the 5 models are running Android 8.1 with EMUI custom skin. There is no big difference in OS.
