Design

1.is dustproof and water-resistant
HTC Desire
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.weight

135g

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.
3.thickness

11.9mm

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.
4.height

119mm

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

60mm

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

84.97cm³

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

252ppi

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 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

3.7"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
HTC Desire
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 Desire
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 OLED or AMOLED display
HTC Desire
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.

Performance

1.CPU speed

1 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 Desire
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

65nm

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)

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.Has a dual-tone LED flash
HTC Desire
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
4.has a flash
HTC Desire
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
5.has a front camera
HTC Desire
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.optical zoom

0x

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
HTC Desire
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
HTC Desire
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

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.Has dedicated media keys
HTC Desire
Phones with physical keyboards have dedicated media keys, such as: play, stop, next, previous, volume up/down, etc.

Battery

1.battery power

1400mAh

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
HTC Desire
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.has wireless charging
HTC Desire
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
4.has a battery level indicator
HTC Desire
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.has a rechargeable battery
HTC Desire
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.download speed

7.2MBits/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.has NFC
HTC Desire
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
3.is DLNA-certified
HTC Desire
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.
4.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.
5.upload speed

2MBits/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.
6.Is free and open source
Anyone is free to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.

Miscellaneous
