Distinctly larger sensor
24 x 35.9 mm
15.6 x 23.5 mm
2.35x larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Substantially lower noise at high ISO
2.27x 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.
Clearly better image quality
12 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.
Explicitly more megapixels (photo)
48.93% more megapixels (photo)
A lot less startup delay
0.01 s less startup delay. It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
Better color depth
4.55% 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.
Significantly less shutter lag
0.01 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Wider dynamic range
5.11% 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.
Significantly newer USB version
1 newer USB version. Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
Has 100 percent viewfinder coverage
With 100 percent viewfinder coverage you can preview the full image that the image sensor will capture, rather than missing some of the outer edges.
Really high resolution images
As the camera captures in such high resolution, any blurred images can be scaled down a little and will look a lot better.
