A tad higher pixel density
469 ppi
vs
441 ppi
6.35% higher pixel density
anonymous
318
Every pixel has three subpixels
Yes
vs
No
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
anonymous
267
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yes
vs
No
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
anonymous
266
Has stereo speakers
Yes
vs
No
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound that surrounds the user from left and right side, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
anonymous
143
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
2
vs
2.2
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the 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.
anonymous
131
Has a radio
Yes
vs
No
It works as an FM radio with included headsets
anonymous
122
Explicitly bigger pixel size
4 µm²
vs
1.3 µm²
2.70 µm² bigger pixel size. Pixel size is the surface area of each pixel on the camera sensor. Larger pixels can absorb more light. This can result in better image quality and improved low-light performance.
anonymous
106
Has an IPS screen
Yes
vs
No
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.

69
Substantially higher maximum light sensitivity
1600 ISO
vs
800 ISO
2x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
