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.
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
AMOLED displays, also known as active matrix OLED displays, offer higher refresh rates and consume less power than other types of displays.
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
This helps to reduce the reflection from your device.
Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.
Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
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.
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
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.
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
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.
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.
The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.
If an app has sharing capabilities and the developers have indicated it, the app will automatically appear in your list of sharing options. Some OS’s limit direct sharing options to a select few apps, which means you have to open apps separately in order to upload the files you want to share.
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
