2.screen size

27"

27"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.pixel density

81.59ppi

82ppi

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.
