A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
2.weight

601g

340g

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.
3.thickness

8.8mm

10.45mm

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.
4.height

185.7mm

120mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.volume

394.16cm³

248.92cm³

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

241.2mm

198.5mm

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

Display

1.resolution

768 x 1024px

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

132ppi

216ppi

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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has a touch screen
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
6.has an IPS screen
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
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.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 1GHz

4 x 1.2GHz

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

0.5GB

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
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
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.

Cameras

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.
2.video recording (main camera)

720 x 30fps

720 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.
3.has a flash
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
4.has a built-in HDR mode
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi (iOS 7.0)
Google Nexus 7
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
5.has a front camera
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
7.has a BSI sensor
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi
Google Nexus 7
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
8.supports slow-motion video recording
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi (iOS 7.0)
Google Nexus 7
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Depending on camera capabilities, frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
9.has a serial shot mode
Apple iPad 2 16GB Wifi (iOS 7.0)
Google Nexus 7
The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.
