Price comparison

Design

1.weight

600g

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

5mm

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

170mm

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

273mm

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

232.05cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.has a physical QWERTY keyboard
Archos 101 XS
Text messaging is much faster due to a hardware keyboard.

Display

1.resolution

1280 x 800px

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

149ppi

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

10.1"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Archos 101 XS
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 a touch screen
Archos 101 XS
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 1.5GHz

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

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
Archos 101 XS
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.
4.internal storage

16GB

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.
5.semiconductor size

45nm

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

1.megapixels (front camera)

1.3MP

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.has a front camera
Archos 101 XS
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
3.Can create panoramas in-camera
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Archos 101 XS
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.battery power

6800mAh

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
Archos 101 XS
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Archos 101 XS
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.has an HDMI output
Archos 101 XS
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
2.Supports widgets
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.
3.The browser has word wrap
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
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.Is free and open source
Anyone is free to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.
6.is DLNA-certified
Archos 101 XS
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
