Explicitly higher resolution
1280x720 px vs 800x480 px—2.40x higher resolution
More battery power
1750 mAh vs 1500 mAh—16.67% more battery power
Appreciably faster CPU clock speed
2 x 1.5 GHz
2 x 1 GHz
2 x 1.5 GHz vs 2 x 1 GHz—1.50x faster CPU clock speed
Way higher pixel density
323 ppi vs 233 ppi—38.63% higher pixel density
Bigger screen size
4.55 " vs 4 "—13.75% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Significantly more megapixels (photo)
13 MP vs 5 MP—2.60x more megapixels (photo)
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.
Clearly faster downloads
42.2 MBits/s vs 21 MBits/s—2.01x faster downloads
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.
A lot wider aperture
2.4 vs 2.6 —8.33% 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.
Vastly more megapixel (photo, front camera)
1.3 MP vs 0.3 MP—4.33x more megapixel (photo, front camera)
8.6 mm vs 9.9 mm—1.30 mm thinner
Every pixel has three subpixels
The device has three full subpixels per pixel which results in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. It may result in less crisp or little blurred image.
The device displays 3D image without any need of wearing special 3D glasses. Special construction of such display allows viewers to get intuitive feeling of image depth by allowing them to move their head to change the perspective and distance to the screen.
Appreciably smaller semiconductor size
28 nm vs 32 nm—4 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
Noticeably 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
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Has a video light
A video light helps when recording a movie in low-light situation like a party.
Modestly less body volume
77.28 cm³ vs 82.9 cm³—7.27% less body volume
