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.
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.
Substantially more microphone(s)
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
10.60 mm narrower
12.20 mm shorter
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.
AirPlay allows wireless connection of Apple devices with external screens or speakers. You may stream computer screen, video and music from iOS devices, play games like on consoles or present your slideshows easily on your TV.
Less body volume
13.95% less body volume
Significantly less shutter lag
0.11 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
Significantly less startup delay
0.15 s less startup delay. It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
Front camera has BSI sensor
A backside illuminated camera sensor is better at capturing images in low light. It is useful to have it on your front camera if you have video chats etc. in places without much light.
Smooth to hold
Shape and material of the back of the phone fits well in your hand

Measurably more internal storage
32 GB more internal storage
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
Is DLNA certified
All DLNA certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
Has fast 802.11ac WiFi connection
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. 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.
Has manual exposure
This allows to manually set the exposure.
ANT+ is a wireless protocol similar to Bluetooth Smart, and is very power efficient. It is mainly used for fitness monitoring devices such as heart rate monitors and cadence sensors to connect to other devices, eg. sports watches, smartphones and cycling computers.
Sizably smaller semiconductor size
4 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
