CPU speedThe 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.

Megapixels (main camera)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.

With the recent release of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+, tablets are now moving into the world of 120Hz display. What the heck does that even mean? It’s referring to the screen’s refresh rate, which is just a fancy term to describe how often the screen refreshes itself. In short, the 120Hz display means less lag and clearer images. Tablets with a 120Hz display are quickly becoming more standard, so here’s what to know when comparing the best of the best.

What does the refresh rate mean?

By definition, the refresh rate is the number of times in a second that a monitor updates itself and shows a new image. You’ll usually hear this term when comparing TVs and computer monitors, but it’s more and more relevant to other smaller devices now too, including tablets and smartphones.

A refresh rate is expressed in hertz, so a refresh rate of 75 means the image is refreshed 75 times in a second. Now, just imagine how much better the image is going to look if it’s refreshed 120 times in a second. Much better!

Why is a 120Hz display important for tablets?

Tablets are portable devices that act as phones, mini TVs, gaming consoles, and portable laptops. They’re all-in-one devices that offer users the chance to read, watch movies, play games, and get work done. So, the screen quality is pretty important, especially when it comes to streaming, editing, and playing games.

You’ll notice that when a tablet’s screen has a higher refresh rate, the gameplay or video playback doesn’t lag. Likewise, if you’re trying to stream movies in high-definition or edit videos in 4K, a higher refresh rate will ensure that the mage doesn’t appear to stutter when streaming videos, watching stored videos, or playing games. The result? A better viewing experience overall and less strain on your eyes.
