Design

1.Stylus included
Panasonic Toughbook A3
A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
2.weight

898.1g

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.
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.
4.height

196.1mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Panasonic Toughbook A3
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.volume

879.45cm³

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

Display

1.resolution

1920 x 1200px

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.
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.
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has an IPS screen
Panasonic Toughbook A3
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.
6.has a touch screen
Panasonic Toughbook A3
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 2.2GHz & 4 x 1.84GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 660)

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.
3.has an external memory slot
Panasonic Toughbook A3
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.
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.
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.

Cameras

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.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
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.
4.has a flash
Panasonic Toughbook A3
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
5.has a built-in HDR mode
Panasonic Toughbook A3
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
6.has a CMOS sensor
Panasonic Toughbook A3
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Panasonic Toughbook A3
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.Has a radio
Panasonic Toughbook A3
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
5.Has dedicated media keys
Panasonic Toughbook A3
Phones with physical keyboards have dedicated media keys, such as: play, stop, next, previous, volume up/down, etc.

Battery

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.
2.Supports fast charging
Panasonic Toughbook A3
Fast charging technologies, like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge or MediaTek’s Pump Express, are used to reduce the time it takes to charge a device. For example, with Quick Charge 3.0, the battery can be charged to 50% in just 30 minutes.
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.
4.has a battery level indicator
Panasonic Toughbook A3
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
5.has a rechargeable battery
Panasonic Toughbook A3
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
6.has wireless charging
Panasonic Toughbook A3
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.

Features

1.has an HDMI output
Panasonic Toughbook A3
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
2.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Panasonic Toughbook A3
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
3.has NFC
Panasonic Toughbook A3
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
4.Supports widgets
Panasonic Toughbook A3 (Android 9.0 Pie)
You can add widgets to the home screen. This allows you to have more flexibility and to see information at a glance, without going into the app.
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.

Miscellaneous

The ultra power-saving mode, also called low power mode, is an effective way to extend the battery life of the device. Usually, it involves limiting screen brightness and contrast, disabling location services, restricting connectivity, and turning off nonessential apps.
