simple not much.

If you "know" that 5 mp is better focus, then you are on the wrong page Pixel count is what determines the resolution of the image. Focus is what the lens does. NOTE: The larger the sensor, the better the image colour depth, dynamic range and low light performance

Megapixels only tell picture size. It doesn't do anything to picture quality. 5MP would be bigger than 3MP. That's all. Focus? All phone cameras do not focus.

You MIGHT notice a slight difference. 3mp is OK for a phone but buy a proper camera with 10 to 14 mp

All of the information that you provided means nothing. megapixels are not and never have been a measure of image quality. it's possible for a 3MP image sensor to perform better than a 5MP one, and vice versa. Give the make and model of the phone, then we can talk. Knowing they type of image sensor, and who makes it will determine which is better.

"Differences between 3 mp and 5 mp camera?" --to answer this particular question, 2MP is the difference. I'm not trying to be 'smart' with that answer, that's what it is. As far as the rest, you didn't really say much about the 2 phones you are comparing. Would have been easier if you stated which 2 models they were. Like if the 3MP one was an iPhone 3GS & the 5MP one, an iPhone 4. Also it is not a guarantee that more megapixels = better pictures. It is guaranteed though that it would mean bigger pictures. The 8MP HTC Evo 4G vs the 5MP Apple iPhone 4 is a perfect example.
