9.Notably wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.4vs 2.6 (Samsung Galaxy S3)
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
58.6mmvs 70.6mm (Samsung Galaxy S3)
123.8mmvs 136.6mm (Samsung Galaxy S3)
12.Substantially more microphone(s)

50MBits/svs 5.76MBits/s (Samsung Galaxy S3)
14.Vastly higher GeekBench result
708vs 428 (Samsung Galaxy S3)

16.Considerably lower SAR for body (USA)
1.18W/kgvs 1.49W/kg (Samsung Galaxy S3)
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.
