Has a BSI sensor
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
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.
Substantially faster downloads
100 MBits/s vs 21.1 MBits/s—4.74x faster downloads
Significantly faster uploads
50 MBits/s vs 5.76 MBits/s—8.68x faster uploads
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.
Distinctly more microphone(s)
3 vs 2 —1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Newer Bluetooth version
4 vs 3 —Newer Bluetooth version
Has a flash
A flash is good for low-light environment and can be often used as flashlight.
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.
Sizably more apps available
900000 vs 165000 —5.45x more apps available
7.6 mm vs 9.9 mm—2.30 mm thinner
Has AF tracking
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
Has a front camera
A front camera can be used for video chats.
Substantially better video recording quality
1080 x 30 fps
720 x 30 fps
1080 x 30 fps vs 720 x 30 fps—1.50x better video recording quality
A lot less body volume
55.1 cm³ vs 75.7 cm³—37.39% less body volume
A bit lighter
112 g vs 124 g—12 g lighter
58.6 mm vs 64 mm—5.40 mm narrower
