Price comparison

Design

1.weight

320.1g

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

7.6mm

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

136.4mm

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

205.2mm

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

212.72cm³

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

2048 x 1536px

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

324ppi

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

7.9"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has an IPS screen
Asus ZenPad Z8
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.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Asus ZenPad Z8
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.
6.has a touch screen
Asus ZenPad Z8
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

6 x 1.8GHz

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

2GB

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
Asus ZenPad Z8
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.Supports 64-bit
Asus ZenPad Z8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 650)
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.
6.Has integrated LTE
Asus ZenPad Z8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 650)
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

8MP

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)

2MP

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)

1080 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 touch autofocus
Asus ZenPad Z8
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
5.has a front camera
Asus ZenPad Z8
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.has a built-in HDR mode
Asus ZenPad Z8
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Asus ZenPad Z8
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 ZenPad Z8
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.number of microphones

1

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

Battery

1.battery power

4680mAh

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.Battery life

13h

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
3.has a battery level indicator
Asus ZenPad Z8
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Asus ZenPad Z8
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.Supports widgets
Asus ZenPad Z8 (Android 6.0 Marshmallow)
