Design

1.Stylus included
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
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

328g

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

8.9mm

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.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.height

120mm

120mm

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

214mm

198.5mm

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

228.55cm³

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.

Display

1.resolution

1280 x 800px

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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.has branded damage-resistant glass
Asus Fonepad 8
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.
4.has a touch screen
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
5.has an IPS screen
Asus Fonepad 8
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.RAM

1GB

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.
2.CPU speed

1.8 x 1.8GHz

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.
3.has an external memory slot
Asus Fonepad 8
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)

1080 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
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
4.has a front camera
Asus Fonepad 8
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.
6.has a serial shot mode
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
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
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.Has a radio
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Battery

1.has a rechargeable battery
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
2.has a battery level indicator
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a removable battery

The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Features

1.has NFC
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions, such as mobile payments. Note: this feature may not be available in all markets.
2.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
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.
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.

6.has a gyroscope
Asus Fonepad 8
Google Nexus 7
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
7.has a cellular module
Asus Fonepad 8
