Price comparison

Design

1.weight

120g

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

12mm

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

114mm

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

66mm

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

90.29cm³

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
BlackBerry 9720
Text messaging is much faster due to a hardware keyboard.

Display

1.pixel density

214ppi

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

480 x 360px

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

2.8"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
BlackBerry 9720
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
BlackBerry 9720
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

1 x 0.8GHz

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

0.5GB

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
BlackBerry 9720
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

0.5GB

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.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

5MP

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.has a flash
BlackBerry 9720
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
3.has a serial shot mode
BlackBerry 9720
The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.
4.number of flash LEDs

1

Multi-LED camera flashes use LED lights which have different color temperatures (warm light and cool light), improving the color balance based on the conditions in which the photos are taken.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
BlackBerry 9720
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
BlackBerry 9720
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
3.Has dedicated media keys
BlackBerry 9720
Phones with physical keyboards have dedicated media keys, such as: play, stop, next, previous, volume up/down, etc.

Battery

1.battery power

1450mAh

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
BlackBerry 9720
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a battery level indicator
BlackBerry 9720
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
BlackBerry 9720
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.Bluetooth version

2.1

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.has GPS
BlackBerry 9720
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
3.has a compass
BlackBerry 9720
A compass is useful for gaming, maps, and navigation software.
4.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
BlackBerry 9720
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.
5.supports Wi-Fi
BlackBerry 9720
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
6.has an accelerometer
BlackBerry 9720
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
