Design

1.Can be used wirelessly
Microsoft HoloLens
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
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.width

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product.
4.height

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product.
5.thickness

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The thickness (or depth) of the product.
6.volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
7.lowest potential operating temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The minimum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.
8.maximum operating temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The maximum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.
9.battery power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.

Display & Lenses

1.Has a display
Microsoft HoloLens
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
2.Has adjustable lenses
Microsoft HoloLens
With adjustable lenses, the device can assure a sharp and clear image for a wide range of users, including users who usually wear glasses.
3.has an IPS screen
Microsoft HoloLens
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.
4.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
Microsoft HoloLens
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.
5.screen size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
6.resolution

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
7.pixel density

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
8.refresh rate

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.
9.field of view

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A wider field of view assures an immersive and realistic experience.

Performance

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.
The internal storage 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.
3.CPU speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
4.has an external memory slot
Microsoft HoloLens
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.

Tracking

1.has an accelerometer
Microsoft HoloLens
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
2.has a gyroscope
Microsoft HoloLens
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
3.Has position tracking
Microsoft HoloLens
The device can track your position in space and warn you if you are about to hit something.
4.Tracks head movement
Microsoft HoloLens
As your head moves, the images move in real-time, assuring a realistic experience.
5.Has gesture control
Microsoft HoloLens
The gesture control function allows you to manipulate virtual objects.
6.has a compass
Microsoft HoloLens
A compass is useful for gaming, maps, and navigation software.
The device can track the movement of your eyes and your gaze, making it easy to interact with the content.
8.tracking area

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The area of the surface that can be used for VR or AR simulations. A larger tracking area allows you more freedom of movement.
9.tracking sensors

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More tracking sensors allow a faster response to the user’s actions, making the interaction with the virtual environment more intuitive.

Connectivity

1.Has USB Type-C
Microsoft HoloLens
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
3.Is compatible with Android
Microsoft HoloLens
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
4.Is compatible with iOS
Microsoft HoloLens
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
5.Bluetooth version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
6.is DLNA-certified
Microsoft HoloLens
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.
More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
8.DisplayPort outputs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.
9.mini DisplayPort outputs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Allows you to connect to a display using mini-DisplayPort.

Features

1.Has integrated audio
Microsoft HoloLens
Devices with integrated audio are more convenient to use, as you don't have worry about connecting headphones or microphones.
2.Game controller included
Microsoft HoloLens
The device comes with a game controller.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.controller weight

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A lighter controller puts less strain on the hands while playing.
5.Has touch controllers
Microsoft HoloLens
The device comes with handheld wireless controllers that are used for gesture control and/or movement tracking.
6.Has a remote control
Microsoft HoloLens
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
7.supports a remote smartphone
Microsoft HoloLens
This technology allows the users to use their smartphone as a remote control for the device.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
9.has stereo speakers
Microsoft HoloLens
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Miscellaneous

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
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.
