Design

1.is dustproof and water-resistant
Cat S48c
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Cat S48c
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

263g

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.
4.thickness

13.46mm

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.
5.height

149.86mm

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

76.2mm

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

Display

1.pixel density

441ppi

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

1080 x 1920px

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"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Cat S48c
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Cat S48c
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 an IPS screen
Cat S48c
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.CPU speed

4 x 2.2GHz & 4 x 1.8GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 630)

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

4GB

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
Cat S48c
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

32GB

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.Has integrated LTE
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
6.semiconductor size
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

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.has built-in optical image stabilization
Cat S48c
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
4.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.
5.Has a dual-tone LED flash
Cat S48c
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
6.has a BSI sensor
Cat S48c
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Cat S48c
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
Cat S48c
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
Cat S48c
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

4000mAh

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
Cat S48c
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has wireless charging
Cat S48c
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
4.Supports fast charging
Cat S48c
Fast charging technologies, like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge or MediaTek’s Pump Express, are used to reduce the time it takes to charge a device. For example, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery can be charged to 50% in just 30 minutes.
5.Has an ultra power-saving mode
Cat S48c (Android 8.0 Oreo)
The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.
6.Battery life

30h

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.

Features

1.download speed

300MBits/s

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
2.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Cat S48c
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.
3.has NFC
Cat S48c
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
4.Has a fingerprint scanner
Cat S48c
The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.
5.is DLNA-certified
Cat S48c
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
