1.CPU speed

2 x 0.268GHz

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.


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.

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.

General info

1.Is region free
Nintendo 3DS
Region free devices allow you to play games from different continents. This enables you to collect a larger game library, and you could play games before they are released in your region.
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.
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 width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
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.

A portable device (e.g., handheld console, smartphone) can be connected to a home console and used as a gamepad.


Consoles which have more games offer more choice to the user. It is also an indicator of how popular a console is.
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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
The more channels of sound, the more realistic the experience becomes.
5.has a touch screen
Nintendo 3DS
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
An autostereoscopic screen displays 3D images that can be seen without 3D glasses.
A secondary screen complements the main screen, offering an enhanced and improved user experience.
8.has two sensors
Nintendo 3DS
The device has two sensors and two lenses. The 3D images may be seen in the parallax-barrier LCD panel without glasses.
9.Supports 3D
