Price comparison

Design

1.weight

730g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

13.3mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

177mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

260mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

612.07cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.resolution

800 x 1280px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

149ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size

10.1"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has a touch screen
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 1GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

1GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

32GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
5.semiconductor size

40nm

Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

5MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

2MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.has a flash
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
5.has a front camera
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.Can create panoramas in-camera
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.battery power

3260mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.has a battery level indicator
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.has an HDMI output
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
2.Supports widgets
You can add widgets to the home screen. This allows you to have more flexibility and to see information at a glance, without going into the app.
3.The browser has word wrap
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
4.Bluetooth version

2.1

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
5.Is free and open source
Anyone is free to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.
6.has a gyroscope
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.

Miscellaneous

1.has a 24p cinema mode
Acer Iconia Tab A500 32GB
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
