As per google developer's guide here,to animate camera on specific position

CameraPosition cameraPosition = new CameraPosition.Builder()
    .target(MOUNTAIN_VIEW)      // Sets the center of the map to Mountain View
    .zoom(17)                   // Sets the zoom
    .bearing(90)                // Sets the orientation of the camera to east
    .tilt(30)                   // Sets the tilt of the camera to 30 degrees
    .build();                   // Creates a CameraPosition from the builder

But, in api reference, CameraPosition has already a constructor defined as:

public CameraPosition (LatLng target, float zoom, float tilt, float bearing)

So, If I write as:

  CameraPosition cameraPosition = new CameraPosition(latLng,9,0,0);


 CameraPosition cameraPosition = new CameraPosition.Builder().target(latLng).zoom(9).build();

are they both same or different? Is there any need of using static nested class CameraPosition.Builder as per reference?

Also, both have same description:

CameraPosition constructor:

Constructs a CameraPosition.

public CameraPosition build():

Builds a CameraPosition.

I doubt if there is any difference between words constructs and builds. Unfortunately, there isn't any information on whole internet about their difference (if exists). Can anyone help please?
