    Design

    1.weight

    163g

    168g

    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

    8mm

    8.2mm

    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

    68mm

    68mm

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

    158mm

    157mm

    The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
    5.weather-sealed (splashproof)
