Price comparison

Design

1.weight

165g

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

9.4mm

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

145mm

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

73.2mm

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

99.77cm³

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.pixel density

196ppi

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 854px

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 an IPS screen
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
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.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
6.has a touch screen
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.3GHz (MediaTek MT6582)

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

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.
3.has an external memory slot
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
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

4GB

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.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.
6.GPU clock speed
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

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.has a flash
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
4.has a front camera
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
5.has touch autofocus
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
6.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
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
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

2000mAh

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
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has a battery level indicator
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.download speed

21.1MBits/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.Bluetooth version

4

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.
3.upload speed

5.76MBits/s

The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
4.supports two SIM cards
Gigabyte GSmart Arty A3
A dual-SIM mobile phone can work with two SIM cards at the same time.
5.is a multi-user system
