  • A static class can not be a top level class and can not implement interfaces where a singleton class can.

  • All members of a static class are static but for a Singleton class it is not a requirement.

  • A static class get initialized when it is loaded so it can not be lazily loaded where a singleton class can be lazily loaded.

  • A static class object is stored in stack whereas singlton class object is stored in heap memory space.
