Clearly faster CPU clock speed
4 x 1.2 GHz
2 x 1 GHz
4 x 1.2 GHz vs 2 x 1 GHz—2.40x faster CPU clock speed
Plenty higher pixel density
216 ppi vs 170 ppi—27.06% higher pixel density
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.
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.
A shade thinner
10.45 mm vs 10.5 mm—0.05 mm thinner
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.
Notably more megapixel (photo, front camera)
1.2 MP vs 0.3 MP—4x more megapixel (photo, front camera)
Measurably higher resolution
1280x800 px vs 1024x600 px—1.67x higher resolution
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.
Clearly more microphone(s)
2 vs 1 —1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Clearly smaller semiconductor size
40 nm vs 45 nm—5 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
A little narrower
120 mm vs 122.4 mm—2.40 mm narrower
Slightly more battery power
4325 mAh vs 4000 mAh—8.13% more battery power
340 g vs 345 g—5 g lighter
