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

21mm

21mm

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

41mm

41mm

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

59mm

59mm

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

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 15fps

1080 x 60fps

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.
2.has a 24p cinema mode

The burst mode, also called serial shot mode or continuous shooting mode, allows you to shoot multiple photos in a row.

Optics

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 BSI sensor
GoPro Hero3+ Black
GoPro Hero3+ Silver
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.
3.has a CMOS sensor
GoPro Hero3+ Black
GoPro Hero3+ Silver
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

Audio

1.has a microphone input
