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.

83.55mm

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