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.
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
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.
Distinctly more microphone(s)
1 more microphone(s). More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
Has a video light
A video light helps when recording a movie in low-light situation like a party.
Has manual ISO
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
Has a serial shot mode
You can shoot multiple pictures in a row.
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
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.
Significantly lower SAR for head (USA)
0.44 W/kg lower SAR for head (USA). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at head level. The legal limit is 1.6 W/kg in the USA.
Has touch autofocus
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
Has manual white balance
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
Explicitly lower SAR for head (EU)
0.30 W/kg lower SAR for head (EU). SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) describes how much radio frequency energy emitted by the device will be absorbed by your body. The rate is measured at head level. The legal limit is 2.0 W/kg in the EU.
