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

7.3mm

7.7mm

The thickness (or depth) of the product.
3.width

67.3mm

70.9mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product.
4.height
