Design

1.width

1.28m

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

26.7kg

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.
How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
The power consumption in standby mode, also called energy-saving mode, measures the amount of power the device consumes when shut down but still plugged in.
This technology allows the users to use their smartphone as a remote control for the device.
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.
The more power per year a device consumes, the less energy efficient it is, making it more costly over time.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

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

1920 x 1080px

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.
An ambient light sensor adjusts the luminance of the device according to the amount of natural light that surrounds it.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.
Local dimming is when sections of the LED array are turned off or dimmed to help produce the deep blacks and higher contrasts.
7.displays 3D
