Reasons For

1 Reason For
Longer battery life (max) Edit
ION the Game ActION is 3h battery life. That's 2h longer than the Polaroid iD1880 (1h). Read more

Battery life is the time the camcorder can record video.

A longer battery life allows you to record video for longer before recharging the camcorder or changing the battery.

3 Reasons For
73% bigger total megapixels Edit
The Polaroid iD1880 is an 18MP sensor camcorder. That's 13MP bigger than the ION the Game ActION (18MP). Read more

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.
