Price comparison

Design

1.weight

160g

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

8.9mm

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

139mm

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

66.5mm

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

Display

1.pixel density

312ppi

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.screen size

4.7"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.has branded damage-resistant glass
Amazon Fire Phone
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Amazon Fire Phone
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.
5.has an IPS screen
Amazon Fire Phone
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.
6.has a touch screen
Amazon Fire Phone
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 2.2GHz

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

2GB

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.internal storage

64GB

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.
4.Has integrated LTE
Amazon Fire Phone (Qualcomm Snapdragon 800)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
5.semiconductor size
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.GPU clock speed
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

13MP

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.has built-in optical image stabilization
Amazon Fire Phone
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.wide aperture (main camera)

f/2.0

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
4.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Amazon Fire Phone
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
5.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Amazon Fire Phone
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
6.has a flash
Amazon Fire Phone
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Amazon Fire Phone
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Amazon Fire Phone
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
Amazon Fire Phone
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Battery

1.battery power

2400mAh

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
Amazon Fire Phone
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Amazon Fire Phone
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.download speed

150MBits/s

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
2.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Amazon Fire Phone
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
3.has NFC
Amazon Fire Phone
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
4.Bluetooth version

4

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.upload speed

50MBits/s

The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
6.is a multi-user system
Amazon Fire Phone (Fire OS 3.5.0)
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.
