Price comparison

Design

1.weight

168g

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

8.3mm

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

155mm

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

78mm

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

100.35cm³

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

Display

1.pixel density

267ppi

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.resolution

720 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.
3.screen size

5.5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Archos 55 Helium Plus
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
Archos 55 Helium Plus
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
Archos 55 Helium Plus
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1GHz

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 55 Helium Plus
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

8GB

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.Supports 64-bit
Archos 55 Helium Plus
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 apps.

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.megapixels (front camera)

5MP

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.
3.video recording (main camera)

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.
4.has a flash
Archos 55 Helium Plus
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
5.has a front camera
Archos 55 Helium Plus
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.has touch autofocus
Archos 55 Helium Plus
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Archos 55 Helium Plus
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
Archos 55 Helium Plus
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
Archos 55 Helium Plus
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
4.number of microphones

1

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

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 removable battery
Archos 55 Helium Plus
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a battery level indicator
Archos 55 Helium Plus
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Archos 55 Helium Plus
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.Bluetooth version

2

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.
2.USB version

2

Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
3.has GPS
Archos 55 Helium Plus
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
4.has a compass
Archos 55 Helium Plus
A compass is useful for gaming, maps, and navigation software.
5.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Archos 55 Helium Plus
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.Body SAR (US)

1.36W/kg

SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at hip level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the U.S.
