Design

1.weight

123g

133g

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

8.9mm

8.6mm

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

129mm

136.6mm

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

68.2mm

70.6mm

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

Display

1.pixel density

217ppi

306ppi

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.
2.resolution

480 x 800px

720 x 1280px

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.
3.screen size

4.3"

4.8"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has branded damage-resistant glass
Samsung Galaxy J1
Samsung Galaxy S3
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Samsung Galaxy J1
Samsung Galaxy S3
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.Has an OLED or AMOLED display
Samsung Galaxy J1
Samsung Galaxy S3
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.

Performance

1.CPU speed

4 x 1.2GHz

4 x 1.6GHz (Samsung Exynos 4412)

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

1GB

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
Samsung Galaxy J1
Samsung Galaxy S3
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

64GB

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.
5.semiconductor size

28nm

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.
6.Has integrated graphics
Samsung Galaxy J1
Samsung Galaxy S3 (Samsung Exynos 4412)
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

5MP

8MP

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.megapixels (front camera)

2MP

1.9MP

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.
3.video recording (main camera)

720 x 30fps

1080 x 30fps

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 BSI sensor
