Design

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.
3.width

63.1mm

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

121.5mm

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

80.5cm³

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

Display

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

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.
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has a touch screen
Samsung Galaxy S
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.RAM

0.77GB

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.
2.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.
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.
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.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
5.has a flash
Samsung Galaxy S
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
6.has manual exposure
Samsung Galaxy S
This allows you to manually set the exposure.
7.has a front camera
Samsung Galaxy S
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
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.

Audio

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
Samsung Galaxy S
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

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.has a removable battery
Samsung Galaxy S
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Samsung Galaxy S
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
A dual-SIM mobile phone can work with two SIM cards at the same time.
4.upload speed

5.76MBits/s

The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
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.
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.
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.
9.has GPS
Samsung Galaxy S
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.

Miscellaneous

Built-in FM transmitter allows you to wirelessly stream music from your device to any radio, e.g. in your car, at a predefined frequency.
2.has a 24p cinema mode
Samsung Galaxy S
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
3.is a system camera
Samsung Galaxy S
A system camera has many interchangeable components such as lenses, flashes, and other accessories. System cameras offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
