Das 8 Pro ist relativ groß und dadurch sehr Akku-hungrig. Es liegt sehr kopflastig in der Hand. Die Kamera ist nur für Landschaften mit viel Licht geeignet. Durch die neue Software ist die Qualität leider weiter verschlechtert worden.

Pros

  • Großes Display
  • Schnelles Laden

Cons

  • Kleiner Akku
  • Unhandlich

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

8.5mm

8.7mm

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.width

74.4mm

73.6mm

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