Price comparison

Design

1.weight

460g

425g

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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.width

26mm

67mm

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

116.68cm³

723.6cm³

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

52mm

72mm

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

346ppi

469ppi

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.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 50fps

1080 x 50fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.

Optics

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.
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
5.has manual focus

A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
