  • has a high resolution 5 megapixel front-facing camera.
  • is the only one with two cameras on the back.
  • is the thickest phone.
  • has the smallest battery capacity.
  • is the only device not resistant to water.

The Samsung Galaxy S5

  • has the highest CPU clock speed despite the similar CPUs.
  • is the lightest phone of the bunch, being plastic.
  • is the thinnest phone of the three.
  • is the only phone with a fingerprint sensor and a heart rate monitor.

The Sony Xperia Z2

  • has the largest screen, but only by a small mark.
