DISPLAY HP iPAQ Data Messenger
Display Type LCD display
Display Technology TFT transmissive
Screen Size (Display Size) 2.81" Worse than 79 % of phones rated.
Screen Resolution (Display Resolution) 240 x 320 pixels Worse than 75 % of phones rated.

The screen size reaches 2.81" inches. Phones with smaller displays are easier to use with one hand. The experience is less pleasant compared to phones with large displays. However, if you're buying a phone for basic use and don't want, for example, a good gaming experience or a large screen for watching movies, this size should be good enough for you. LCD displays are currently taking a back seat. This is mainly due to higher power consumption. In addition, they have the disadvantage of lower colour contrast, which can be reflected e.g. in the resulting photos. On the other hand, phones with LCD displays are in general cheaper than those with OLED technology.

Display Resolution of HP iPAQ Data Messenger is 240 x 320 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px.

MEMORY HP iPAQ Data Messenger
RAM SDRAM - 128 MB Worse than 90 % of phones rated.
Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity) -
Supported Flash Memory Cards (Expandable Memory) microSD

An additional option to increase the storage capacity of this model is to insert a memory card.

RAM memory of the HP iPAQ Data Messenger is SDRAM - 128 MB. Most powerful phones currently have an operating memory of 12 GB or more, which is especially useful for demanding users such as gaming enthusiasts. Normally, phones nowadays have 6 to 8 GB of RAM, which means that the phone can easily handle normal operation and more demanding applications. Operating memory of less than 4 GB is found in lower-end phones or older models, and they are suitable for low-end users who don't use demanding applications and have the phone more for basic use.

The rear camera of the HP iPAQ Data Messenger has only one lens. Single lens is more typical for older phones or lower-end phones with lower quality cameras. The rear cameras of modern phones nowadays are usually equipped with two, three and sometimes even five rear camera lenses. The resolution of the main lens is 3.1 Megapixel. Higher resolution does not necessarily mean super high quality photos. Furthermore, it depends on the pixel size but also on other important factors.

Digital zoom in this case offers zooming up to 5x. Of course, the higher the lens value, the more distant object can be zoomed in. Nonetheless, the disadvantage of digital zoom is that the quality and sharpness of photo deteriorates when using it.

Battery Capacity (Battery Size) 1140 mAh Worse than 76 % of phones rated.
Battery Technology Lithium polymer

The battery size of HP iPAQ Data Messenger is 1140 mAh. Nevertheless, battery capacity is not the only factor that affects the phone's battery life. For example - the size of the display, the performance of the processor, the use of data functions and, of course, the intensity of use of phone in general all have a significant impact on battery life. Standard for most smartphones today is a battery capacity of around 4500 to 5000 mAH. Phones with this battery size usually guarantee a phone life of at least 1 day. Older or cheaper smartphone models can then reach battery capacities typically around 2500 mAH and below. With this capacity, you may find that if you use your phone heavily, you may need to recharge your phone during the day.
