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.Stylus included
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB
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.


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


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


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



2048 x 1536px

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


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


The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has an IPS screen
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
5.has a touch screen
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
6.has anti-reflection coating
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB
This helps to reduce the reflection from your device.


1.CPU speed

2 x 2.34GHz & 2 x 1.05GHz (Apple A10 Fusion)

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.


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.internal storage


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.
4.Supports 64-bit
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB (Apple A10 Fusion)
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.
5.semiconductor size
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.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB (Apple A10 Fusion)
Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores to maximize performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximize battery life.


1.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.
2.megapixels (front camera)


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
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB
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
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
6.has a built-in HDR mode
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB (iOS 11)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).


1.has stereo speakers
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB

2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Apple iPad 9.7" (2018) WiFi 32GB
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.number of microphones


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


1.battery power


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.Battery life


The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
3.has a battery level indicator
