Design

1.weight

185g

143g

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

7.9mm

8.2mm

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.width

81mm

69.3mm

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

157mm

140.9mm

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

Display

1.pixel density

368ppi

445ppi

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

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

6"

5"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
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
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
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
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
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

8 x 1.8GHz

4 x 2GHz

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

3GB

2GB

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
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
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

16GB

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
Huawei Ascend Mate 7 (HiSilicon Kirin 925)
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 801)
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

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

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.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

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.
4.has a built-in HDR mode
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
5.has a flash
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
6.has a CMOS sensor
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
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.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
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
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.Has a radio
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
ZTE Nubia Z7 mini
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Battery

1.battery power

4100mAh

2300mAh

Battery power, also called battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy stored in the battery. Measured in milliampere-hours (mAh), it indicates how much electric power can be used over time. More battery power translates into longer battery life.
2.has a battery level indicator
Huawei Ascend Mate 7
