Distinctly faster CPU clock speed
2 x 0.8 GHz
1 x 0.8 GHz
2 x 0.8 GHz vs 1 x 0.8 GHz—2x faster CPU clock speed
A tad higher pixel density
330 ppi vs 326 ppi—1.23% higher pixel density
Sizably more internal storage
16 GB vs 8 GB—8 GB more internal storage
Distinctly faster downloads
14.4 MBits/s vs 7.2 MBits/s—2x faster downloads
Considerably wider aperture
2.4 vs 2.8 —16.67% wider aperture. Aperture sizes are expressed in f-stops. The smaller the number, the wider the aperture. This means the sensor captures more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling you to use a faster shutter speed. In addition, a wide aperture provides a narrow depth of field enabling you to focus on the subject and blur the background.
Newer Bluetooth version
4 vs 2.1 —Newer Bluetooth version
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Distinctly faster maximum shutter speed
0.0005 s vs 0.001 s—2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Has touch autofocus
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
Distinctly lower SAR for body (USA)
0.98 W/kg vs 1.11 W/kg—0.13 W/kg lower SAR for body (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at hip level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
Has manual white balance
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
Substantially less startup delay
1.4 s vs 2.2 s—0.80 s less startup delay. It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
Substantially less shutter lag
0.4 s vs 1.3 s—0.90 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
