Price comparison

Design

1.weight

1.21kg

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

13.7mm

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.Stylus included
Vaio Z Canvas
A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
4.height

213.1mm

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

300.9mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Has a detachable keyboard
Vaio Z Canvas
You can detach the keyboard of your device and use the screen as a tablet. Detaching the keyboard makes the device lighter and gives you the possibility to switch easily between laptop-mode and tablet-mode. The keyboard is included when buying the device.

Display

1.resolution

2560 x 1704px

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

250ppi

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

12.3"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Vaio Z Canvas
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
Vaio Z Canvas
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed
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

16GB

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
Vaio Z Canvas
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

1000GB

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.Supports 64-bit
Vaio Z Canvas (Intel Core i7-4770HQ)
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.
6.semiconductor size

14nm

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

1.megapixels (main camera)

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)

0.92MP

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)

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 CMOS sensor
Vaio Z Canvas
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
5.has a front camera
Vaio Z Canvas
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.Can create panoramas in-camera
Vaio Z Canvas (Windows 10 Pro)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

Audio

1.has stereo speakers
Vaio Z Canvas
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Vaio Z Canvas
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Battery

1.has a battery level indicator
Vaio Z Canvas
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
2.has a rechargeable battery
Vaio Z Canvas
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.has an HDMI output
Vaio Z Canvas
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
2.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Vaio Z Canvas
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
3.Supports widgets
Vaio Z Canvas (Windows 10 Pro)
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.
4.is a multi-user system
Vaio Z Canvas (Windows 10 Pro)
A multi-user operating system allows multiple users to access the device. Each user has a dedicated profile with apps and data available only to them.
5.The browser has word wrap
Vaio Z Canvas (Windows 10 Pro)
The web browser has automatic word wrap when zooming, the user can easily read long lines without scrolling horizontally.
6.Bluetooth version

4.1

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.

Miscellaneous

1.RJ45 ports

1

RJ-45 ports are used for LAN (Local Area Network) connections. With more ports you can achieve increased bandwidth across a LAN, or connect to multiple networks. It also has the added benefit of not losing connection to the network if one fails.
2.mini DisplayPort outputs

1

Allows you to connect to a display using mini-DisplayPort.
3.HDMI ports

1

More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
4.uses multithreading
Vaio Z Canvas (Intel Core i7-4770HQ)
Multithreading technology (such as Intel's Hyperthreading or AMD's Simultaneous Multithreading) provides increased performance by splitting each of the processor's physical cores into virtual cores, also known as threads. This way, each core can run two instruction streams at once.
