Considerably more battery power
48.10% more battery power
Vastly faster CPU clock speed
4 x 1.4 GHz
2 x 0.8 GHz
3.50x faster CPU clock speed
Lots bigger screen size
37.14% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Plenty more RAM memory
0.50 GB more RAM memory
Noticeably higher resolution
1.50x higher resolution
Appreciably more megapixel (photo, front camera)
6.33x more megapixel (photo, front camera)
Has an external memory slot
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.
Has branded damage resistant glass
Damage resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontail Glass) is thin and lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
Has a removable battery
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
A little bit lighter
7 g lighter
0.70 mm thinner
Can be charged via standard USB cable
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
Has USB mass storage support
It can transfer files, music, photos via USB, no need to install additional software.
Considerably faster downloads
45.83% faster downloads
Is DLNA certified
All DLNA certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
NFC (near field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions.
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.
Vastly smaller semiconductor size
13 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
Higher GeekBench result
Higher GeekBench result. This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2015)
Has manual ISO
This allows to manually set the ISO level.
Considerably lower SAR for head (USA)
0.63 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.
Notably lower SAR for head (EU)
0.78 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.
Measurably faster maximum shutter speed
5x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Explicitly longer exposure time
0.93 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.
Explicitly less shutter lag
0.05 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
