Every pixel has three subpixels.
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
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.
1.40 mm thinner
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

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 two-stage shutter
A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.
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 continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Sizably more microphone(s)
