Touchscreen: Capacitive touchscreen
Capacitive screens use electrodes to sense the touch of an object that simply has the dielectric value different than that of air. This gives the capacitive screens a slighter edge with respect to sensitivity of the screen. Even a small swipe by the tip of a finger is enough to generate a response whereas its counterpart (resistive touch) requires a heavy touch to get the necessary response.
Pixel density: 220 PPI (Pixels Per Inch)
Pixel density (PPI) gives you the number of pixels per inch of diagnol size. For good clarity (at 100% zoom), minimum acceptable PPI is around 300. Anything lower than 225 is considered below average.

Camera feature: HDR
HDR or High Dynamic Range allows you to capture more vibrant photos by increasing the dynamic range between the dark and bright areas in a photo. The phone captures multiple photos at different exposure levels and merges them to achieve the effect.
External Memory: Expandable up to 32 GB (MicroSD)
MicroSD card slot allows you to expand the device storage space with the use of flash based MicroSD cards.
Accelerometers are used to detect the orientation of the phone. They automatically detect when the device is turned and change the display from landscape to portrait and vice versa.
Proximity sensors detect when some thing is very close to the device. It is usually used to turn off the display when the user is holding the phone close to the ear, or when the device is covered by something like flip covers.
Sensors: Digital compass
Digital compass detect the direction with respect to the magnetic or true poles. They provide relative direction with respect to North, South, East and West.
