Price comparison

Design

1.weight

113g

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

10.3mm

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

120.5mm

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

63mm

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

78.19cm³

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

233ppi

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

400 x 800px

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

4"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
HTC 8S
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
HTC 8S
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
HTC 8S
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 1GHz

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
HTC 8S
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.

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.video recording (main camera)

720 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.
3.wide aperture (main camera)

f/2.8

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.
4.supports slow-motion video recording
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
5.has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
6.has a flash
HTC 8S
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
HTC 8S
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.number of microphones

1

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

Battery

1.battery power

1700mAh

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 battery level indicator
HTC 8S
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
HTC 8S
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.has NFC
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
2.Bluetooth version

3.1

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.
3.is a multi-user system
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
4.The browser has word wrap
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
5.Has offline voice recognition
Offline voice recognition enables you to perform voice actions, like dictating texts or using various voice commands, without an internet connection.
6.Supports widgets
You can add widgets to the home screen. This allows you to have more flexibility and to see information at a glance, without going into the app.

Miscellaneous

1.supports AVCHD format
HTC 8S
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.
2.is a system camera
HTC 8S
A system camera has many interchangeable components such as lenses, flashes, and other accessories. System cameras offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
