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.
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.
The manufacturer offers a branded wireless charging kit. To charge the device, you simply put it down on its charging base.
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 fast 802.11ac WiFi connection
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
ANT+ is a wireless protocol similar to Bluetooth Smart, and is very power efficient. It is mainly used for fitness monitoring devices such as heart rate monitors and cadence sensors to connect to other devices, eg. sports watches, smartphones and cycling computers.
Has manual exposure
This allows to manually set the exposure.
Distinctly smaller semiconductor size
4 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)
Sizably lower SAR for head (USA)
0.33 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.
Substantially higher memory bandwidth
4.30 GB/s higher memory bandwidth. A higher memory bandwidth means the memory can be accessed faster and therefore data can be retrieved quicker, having a positive effect on the performance.
Faster Internet browser (Browsermark 2.0)
5.13% faster Internet browser (Browsermark 2.0)
Noticeably faster maximum shutter speed
5x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
