1.Stylus included
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
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.


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.is dustproof and water-resistant
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.


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


The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
9.has a physical QWERTY keyboard
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
Text messaging is much faster due to a hardware keyboard.



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.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.has a touch screen
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
6.has an IPS screen
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
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.
7.has anti-reflection coating
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
This helps to reduce the reflection from your device.


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 Toughpad FZ-G1
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.
5.Supports 64-bit
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 (Intel Core i5-7300U)
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.
7.Has integrated graphics
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 (Intel Core i5-7300U)
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
8.Has AES
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 (Intel Core i5-7300U)
AES is used to speed up encryption and decryption.
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.


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.
2.has a flash
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
3.has a front camera
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
4.Can create panoramas in-camera
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 (Windows 8)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
Multi-LED camera flashes use LED lights which have different color temperatures (warm light and cool light), improving the color balance based on the conditions in which the photos are taken.


1.has stereo speakers
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
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.


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.has a battery level indicator
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1
