A lot higher pixel density
29.37% higher pixel density
A little bit bigger screen size
8.11% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Explicitly more megapixels (photo)
1.60x more megapixels (photo)
Way more RAM memory
0.50 GB more RAM memory
Significantly higher resolution
1.89x higher resolution
Every pixel has three subpixels.
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
23 g lighter
4.30 mm thinner
Measurably faster downloads
13.89x faster downloads
Direct updates by OS vendor
It can be updated directly by the OS vendor, so no need to wait until the manufacturer or network provider releases an update.
Vastly better video recording quality
1080 x 30 fps
720 x 30 fps
1.50x better video recording quality
Has an IPS screen
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
Has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
1.40 mm narrower
Appreciably more microphone(s)
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Newer Bluetooth version
Newer Bluetooth version
Has a video light
A video light helps when recording a movie in low-light situation like a party.
Vastly smaller semiconductor size
33 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
Has a CMOS sensor
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
Substantially faster uploads
25x faster uploads
Has manual ISO
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
Has a serial shot mode
You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.
