CPU:CPU - Central Processing Unit The CPU (processor) is one of the most important components in a smartphone, it can be likened to the brain of the system. The first is the arithmetic logic unit (ALU), which performs simple arithmetic and logical operations. Second is the control unit (CU), which manages the various components of the computer. It reads and interprets instructions from memory and transforms them into a series of signals to activate other parts of the computer. The control unit calls upon the arithmetic logic unit to perform the necessary calculations.
CPU bits:The 32-bit processor was the primary processor used in all computers until the early 1990s. Intel Pentium processors and early AMD processors were 32-bit processors. The operating system and software on a computer with a 32-bit processor is also 32-bit based, in that they work with data units that are 32 bits wide. Windows 95, 98, and XP are all 32-bit operating systems that were common on computers with 32-bit processors. The 64-bit computer has been around since 1961 when IBM created the IBM 7030 Stretch supercomputer. However, it was not put into use in home computers until the early 2000s. Microsoft released a 64-bit version of Windows XP to be used on computers with a 64-bit processor. Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 also come in 64-bit versions. Other software has been developed that is designed to run on a 64-bit computer, which are 64-bit based as well, in that they work with data units that are 64 bits wide.

Level 1 cache memory (L1):
16 KB + 16 KB
CPU cores:A CPU may have one or more cores to perform tasks at a given time. These tasks are usually software processes and threads that the OS schedules. Note that the OS may have many threads to run, but the CPU can only run X such tasks at a given time, where X = number cores * number of hardware threads per core. The rest would have to wait for the OS to schedule them whether by preempting currently running tasks or any other means.
CPU frequency:The CPU speed, or processor speed, is the amount of cycles that a CPU can perform per second. This is otherwise known as a Hertz. For example, one Hertz means that one cycle can be completed in one second. A megahertz means that one million cycles can be completed in a second. A gigahertz, the most common form of processor speed, means that one billion cycles can be completed per second.

RAM capacity:RAM (random access memory) is the place in a computing device where the operating system (OS), application programs and data in current use are kept so they can be quickly reached by the devices processor. RAM is much faster to read from and write to than other kinds of storage in a computer, such as a hard disk drive (HDD), solid-state drive (SSD) or optical drive. Data remains in RAM as long as the computer is running. When the computer is turned off, RAM loses its data. When the computer is turned on again, the OS and other files are once again loaded into RAM, usually from an HDD or SSD.
128 MB
RAM type:Mobile DDR (also known as mDDR, Low Power DDR, or LPDDR) is type of double data rate synchronous DRAM for mobile smart phones and Tablet PC application.
RAM frequency:
103 MHz
Operating system (OS):iOS is the mobile operating system that runs on Apples mobile devices, i.e. iPhones and iPads. It is the main software that allows you to interact with your Apple phone or tablet. iOS is the first thing you see when you power up your device, in the form of your phone or tablets lock screen and desktops (which are filled with shortcuts to your favourite apps). When you head into your iPhone or iPads settings menu, thats also controlled by the operating system. From here you can adjust the devices hardware settings, toggling features such as Bluetooth and WiFi on and off, or adjusting the brightness of the screen.

Type/technology:IPS (In Plane Switching) panels are generally considered the best overall LCD technology for image quality, color accuracy and viewing angles. They are well suited for graphics design and other applications which require accurate and consistent color reproduction. IPS panels offer the best viewing angles of any current LCD technology, with wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees.

Aspect ratio:
Resolution:In computers, resolution is the number of pixels (individual points of color) contained on a display monitor, expressed in terms of the number of pixels on the horizontal axis and the number on the vertical axis. The sharpness of the image on a display depends on the resolution and the size of the monitor. The same pixel resolution will be sharper on a smaller monitor and gradually lose sharpness on larger monitors because the same number of pixels are being spread out over a larger number of inches.
320 x 480 pixels
Pixel density:Pixels per inch (PPI) is a measurement of the pixel density (resolution) of devices in various contexts: typically computer displays, image scanners, and digital camera image sensors. The PPI of a computer display is related to the size of the display in inches and the total number of pixels in the horizontal and vertical directions.

Sensors Apple iPhone 3G
Sensors:An accelerometer is an electromechanical device used to measure acceleration forces. Such forces may be static, like the continuous force of gravity or, as is the case with many mobile devices, dynamic to sense movement or vibrations.

A gyroscope is a device with a spinning disc or wheel mechanism that harnesses the principle of conservation of angular momentum: the tendency for the spin of a system to remain constant unless subjected to external torque. Gyroscopes are used in many inventions both old and new to stabilize, guide or measure rotational movement. Wheels on a bicycle, for example, act as gyroscopes as they spin up to speed, making it easier to stay upright and harder to upset momentum. Guided missiles use gyroscopes to track and guide their courses.

A barometer is used to measure atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure is a measure of the amount of force air exerts onto the earth as it is pushed down from the atmosphere. Another term for atmospheric pressure is barometric pressure.

Fingerprint identification is one of the most well-known and publicized biometrics. Because of their uniqueness and consistency over time, fingerprints have been used for identification for over a century, more recently becoming automated (i.e. a biometric) due to advancements in computing capabilities. Fingerprint identification is popular because of the inherent ease in acquisition, the numerous sources (10 fingers) available for collection, and their established use and collections by law enforcement and immigration.

Connectivity Apple iPhone 3G
GSM:GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) is a digital mobile telephony system that is widely used in Europe and other parts of the world. GSM uses a variation of time division multiple access (TDMA) and is the most widely used of the three digital wireless telephony technologies (TDMA, GSM, and CDMA). GSM digitizes and compresses data, then sends it down a channel with two other streams of user data, each in its own time slot. It operates at either the 900 MHz or 1800 MHz frequency band.
GSM 850 MHz
GSM 900 MHz
GSM 1800 MHz
GSM 1900 MHz
UMTS:UMTS, short for Universal Mobile Telecommunications System, is a 3G networking standard used throughout much of the world as an upgrade to existing GSM mobile networks. UMTS makes use of WCDMA, a technology that shares much with CDMA networks used throughout the world, though it is not compatible with them. Base level UMTS networks are generally capable of downlink speeds as fast as 384kbps. Newer HSDPA variants are capable of rates as high as 3.6Mbps or more. Originally used only on the 2100MHz frequency band in Europe, UMTS is now supported on the 850MHz and 1900MHz bands in North America.

Wi-Fi:WiFi is a technology that uses radio waves to provide network connectivity. A WiFi connection is established using a wireless adapter to create hotspots - areas in the vicinity of a wireless router that are connected to the network and allow users to access internet services. Once configured, WiFi provides wireless connectivity to your devices by emitting frequencies between 2.4GHz - 5GHz, based on the amount of data on the network.
802.11b (IEEE 802.11b-1999)
802.11g (IEEE 802.11g-2003)
Bluetooth:Bluetooth first appeared as a consumer technology in 2000 and it is still going strong. It is a wireless communication protocol for connecting devices through the air - it is slower than Wi-Fi but is often simpler to set up, and is usually preferred for device-to-device transfers.
A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile)
USB:A USB port is a standard cable connection interface for personal computers and consumer electronics devices. USB stands for Universal Serial Bus, an industry standard for short-distance digital data communications. USB ports allow USB devices to be connected to each other with and transfer digital data over USB cables. They can also supply electric power across the cable to devices that need it.
