Clearly more megapixels (photo)
16 MP vs 12 MP—33.33% more megapixels (photo)
Distinctly larger sensor
4.8 x 6.4 mm
4.55 x 6.17 mm
4.8 x 6.4 mm vs 4.55 x 6.17 mm—9.43% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
A shade more battery power
1000 mAh vs 925 mAh—8.11% more battery power
Distinctly higher maximum light sensitivity
12800 ISO vs 6400 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.
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Notably longer maximum focal length
360 mm vs 140 mm—220 mm longer maximum focal length. Long focal lengths (>100 mm) let you take close up pictures of things far away from you. These are called telephoto lenses and are good for things like wildlife photography.
Vastly shorter minimum focal length
24 mm vs 28 mm—4 mm shorter minimum focal length. Lenses with a shorter focal length allow you to capture a wider field of view. Anything below 20mm is considered a wide angle lens. These are ideal for landscape or architectural photography.
Vastly higher optical zoom
15 x vs 5 x—10 x higher optical zoom. Optical zoom allows taking close-ups of far away objects easily without interfering with the photographed subject. High optical zoom is often found in high-end pocket cameras and tele-lenses for DSLRs.
Has a stereo microphone
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
Measurably wider aperture
3.5 vs 3.9 —11.43% wider aperture. Aperture sizes are expressed in f-stops. The smaller the number, the wider the aperture. This means the sensor captures more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling you to use a faster shutter speed. In addition, a wide aperture provides a narrow depth of field enabling you to focus on the subject and blur the background.
Measurably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
12 fps vs 5 fps—2.40x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Considerably longer exposure time
8 s vs 4 s—4 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
59.2 mm vs 65.9 mm—6.70 mm narrower
