here's what docs say-

-The default Context Engine Cartridge installed as part of SDL Digital Experience Accelerator is used to detect device/browser screen features and capabilities.

-This information is used to manipulate page layout and image resizing and drive a reponsive design.

-This functionality is free to use without an SDL Mobile license, however if you do have an SDL Mobile license, you can take advantage of some additional features; First request device capability detection and Contextual Image Delivery.

Read more at docs :Setting up Context Engine Cartridge (SDL Mobile) , hope it will clarify most of the questions.
