We’re glad you asked, so we put the two against one another in this spec comparison. You’ll be able to see directly how the processors compare, how the cameras differ, the screen sizes, measurements and more. Obviously the two offer very different software experiences, but considering that the prices are right on a par with one another we think it’s a fair match up.
