160mm

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

203.2mm

245mm

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

167.09cm³

215.6cm³

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

Display

2048 x 1536px

2560 x 1600px

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

326ppi

288ppi

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

7.9"

10.5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass

5.has an IPS screen
Apple iPad mini (2019)
Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e
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.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Apple iPad mini (2019)
Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e
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.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 2.5GHz & 4 x 1.6GHz (Apple A12 Bionic)

2 x 2GHz & 6 x 1.7GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 670)

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
