Explicitly lower noise at high ISO
1284 ISO vs 919 ISO—39.72% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
A little bit larger sensor
15.6 x 23.5 mm
15.4 x 23.1 mm
15.6 x 23.5 mm vs 15.4 x 23.1 mm—3.05% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
A little bit more battery power
1030 mAh vs 1000 mAh—3% more battery power
Has a flip-out screen
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Measurably higher maximum light sensitivity
25600 ISO vs 12800 ISO—2x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Explicitly more megapixels (photo)
24.71 MP vs 14.8 MP—1.67x more megapixels (photo)
Has a microphone in
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
Has a stereo microphone
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
Substantially better video recording quality
1080 x 60 fps
1080 x 24 fps
1080 x 60 fps vs 1080 x 24 fps—2.50x better video recording quality
Reasonably better color depth
24.2 bits vs 22.5 bits—7.56% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
Noticeably wider dynamic range
13.9 EV vs 11.3 EV—23.01% wider dynamic range. The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights.
Sizably better image quality
84 vs 67 —17 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. We use metrics from http://wwww.dxomark.com.
Distinctly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
5 fps vs 3 fps—1.67x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Notably more focus points
39 vs 11 —28 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
Has manual shutter speed
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
Noticeably higher resolution
1176x784 px vs 588x392 px—4x higher resolution
