HTC First vs Apple iPhone 4S 16GB
Top 25 Reasons for the
Compared to Apple iPhone 4S 16GB
Plenty more battery power
41.04% more battery power
Notably faster CPU clock speed
2 x 1.4 GHz
2 x 0.8 GHz
1.75x faster CPU clock speed
A little higher pixel density
3.33% higher pixel density
Amply more RAM memory
0.50 GB more RAM memory
Bigger screen size
22.86% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Sizably higher resolution
1.50x higher resolution
Has an external memory slot
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.
Considerably more megapixel (photo, front camera)
5.33x more megapixel (photo, front camera)
Has USB mass storage support
It can transfer files, music, photos via USB, no need to install additional software.
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
A tad thinner
0.34 mm thinner
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the 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.
Significantly smaller semiconductor size
17 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
Explicitly lower SAR for head (USA)
0.53 W/kg lower SAR for head (USA). 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 head level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.

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.
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.
Has a serial shot mode
You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.
Notably lower SAR for body (USA)
0.31 W/kg lower SAR for body (USA). 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.
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Has touch autofocus
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
Has manual white balance
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
6.33 mm narrower
Less body volume
20.58% less body volume
10.40 mm shorter
