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.
4.80 mm narrower
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Distinctly 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.
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.
Clearly faster uploads
8.68x faster uploads
Has AF tracking
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
Has a flash
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
Has a gyroscope
A gyroscope is a sensor that can be used to either measure or maintain the orientation of a device. Traditionally, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, eg. twisting or rotation.
Has a front camera
A front camera can be used for video chats / self portraits.
