What is OS / Operating System?


#1 OS stands for operating system, it’s a system software that manages mobile phone’s hardware, software resources & provides common services for mobile phone programs. Furthermore, for hardware functions such as input, output & memory allocation, the operating system acts as an intermediary between programs & the Phone’s hardware. Although, the application code is usually executed directly by the hardware & frequently makes system calls to an OS function or is interrupted by it. Operating systems are found on many devices that contain a computer – from cellular phones and video game consoles to web servers & supercomputers.

What is “Dimensions”?

#2 Dimensions The dimension of an object is informally defined as the minimum number of coordinates needed to specify any point within it. Thus a line has a dimension of one (1D) because only one coordinate is needed to specify a point on it – for example, a surface such as a phone has a dimension of three (3D).

What is Weight?

What is Battery & Battery Charging?

Samsung Battery

#6 Battery is an electronic cell (or enclosed and protected material) that can be charged electrically to provide a static potential for power or released electrical charge when needed. A battery generally consists of an anode, a cathode, and an electrolyte.

mAh means milliamp Hour and is a unit that measures (electric) power over time. It is commonly used to measure the energy capacity of a battery. In general, the more mAh and the longer the battery capacity or battery life. A higher number means that the battery can store more energy, so it has a higher capacity.

What is “Colors”?
