Price comparison

Design

1.has an LED-backlit display
Olympus WS-801
Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.
2.volume

59.32cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
3.weight

57g

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.
4.Has a dedicated Record Button

Dedicated Record Button makes recording fast and simple because you need only to press it to start and stop the recording.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Olympus WS-801
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.thickness

14.8mm

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.
