Design

1.width

953mm

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

12.8kg

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.
How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
The power consumption in standby mode, also called energy-saving mode, measures the amount of power the device consumes when shut down but still plugged in.
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.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

1920 x 1080px

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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.
An ambient light sensor adjusts the luminance of the device according to the amount of natural light that surrounds it.
6.displays 3D

If the device supports Dolby Digital it can deliver up to six different audio channels (sides) for a much better sound quality.
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
Audio output power is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts. High audio output power results in loud, clear sounds.
