Price comparison

Design

1.weight

285g

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.
2.thickness

10.85mm

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.
3.height

116.3mm

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

202.1mm

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

255.02cm³

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

800 x 480px

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.
2.pixel density

133ppi

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.
3.screen size

7"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
PocketBook SURFpad
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.
5.has a touch screen
PocketBook SURFpad
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

1 x 1GHz

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.
2.RAM

0.5GB

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
PocketBook SURFpad
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.
4.internal storage

4GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), 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.

Cameras

1.megapixels (front camera)

0.3MP

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.
2.has a front camera
PocketBook SURFpad
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
3.Can create panoramas in-camera
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
PocketBook SURFpad
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.

Battery

1.battery power

3000mAh

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
PocketBook SURFpad
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
PocketBook SURFpad
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

3.Is free and open source
Anyone is free to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software.
4.has a gyroscope
PocketBook SURFpad
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
Java is an object-oriented programming language designed to enable application developers to run Java code on all compatible platforms without the need to recompile the code.
6.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
PocketBook SURFpad
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
