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.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Newer Bluetooth version
Newer Bluetooth version
Has a video light
A video light helps when recording a movie in low-light situation like a party.
Distinctly smaller semiconductor size
13 nm smaller semiconductor size. A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
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.
Significantly faster uploads
57.60x faster uploads
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.
Has a front camera
A front camera can be used for video chats / self portraits.
Substantially lower SAR for head (USA)
0.14 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 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.
