What is a comparison chart?

Comparison charts represent the features of one or more options that can be compared to each other. They can be used to depict differences, analyze the progress of data groups, and highlight advantages and disadvantages. Comparison charts are versatile, and ultimately, they provide qualitative and quantitative analysis to help you make data-driven decisions.

Why use comparison charts?

Pricing table design

Comparison charts present information in a digestible format, so you can draw quicker and easier comparisons than with plain text alone.

Are you buying a new phone but stuck between two different models? Do you want to weigh the pros and cons of owning a home? No worries. Whether you’re making a simple choice or a complex decision with major consequences, a comparison table can help you gain valuable insight to arrive at a conclusion that will benefit you the most.
