Price comparison

Design

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.
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.width

66.5mm

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

86.82cm³

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

Display

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.
2.resolution

480 x 854px

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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has an IPS screen
Acer Liquid Z330
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
5.has a touch screen
Acer Liquid Z330
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.1GHz

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.
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.
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.
The internal storage 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.
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.
6.Has NX bit
Acer Liquid Z330 (ARM Cortex-A7)
NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
8.Has TrustZone
Acer Liquid Z330 (ARM Cortex-A7)
A technology integrated into the processor to secure the device for use with features such as mobile payments and streaming video using digital rights management (DRM).
The CPU can decode more instructions per clock (IPC), meaning that the CPU performs better

Cameras

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.
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.has a built-in HDR mode
Acer Liquid Z330
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
4.has a flash
Acer Liquid Z330
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
5.has a CMOS sensor
Acer Liquid Z330
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
6.has a front camera
Acer Liquid Z330
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
8.has touch autofocus
Acer Liquid Z330
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
Multi-LED camera flashes use LED lights which have different color temperatures (warm light and cool light), improving the color balance based on the conditions in which the photos are taken.

Audio

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
Acer Liquid Z330
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

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 removable battery
Acer Liquid Z330
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.has a rechargeable battery
Acer Liquid Z330
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

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.
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
Offline voice recognition enables you to perform voice actions, like dictating texts or using various voice commands, without an internet connection.
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.
Java is an object-oriented programming language designed to enable application developers to run Java code on all compatible platforms without the need to recompile the code.
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.
9.has GPS
