2.thickness

7.7mm

7.2mm

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

128mm

134.7mm

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

214mm

200mm

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

210.92cm³

193.97cm³
