3.80 mm thinner
Has stereo speakers
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound that surrounds the user from left and right side, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
Considerably more megapixels (photo)
2.38x more megapixels (photo)
Distinctly more megapixel (photo, front camera)
6.33x more megapixel (photo, front camera)
Has branded damage resistant glass
Damage resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontail Glass) is thin and lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
Measurably more internal storage
28 GB more internal storage
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 touch autofocus
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
Has a compass
A compass is useful in games, map and navigation software.
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.
Significantly smaller semiconductor size
13 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
