Web Services can only be invoked via HTTP, while WCF components can be invoked by any protocol and and for any type of transport.

Also, WCF services are more flexible, with the provided API we can create the service and config we want for communication mechanism we use as http, tcp, msmq, etc.

These are the main advantages. also we have:
- Provides a mechanism for managing instances
- WCF provides a logging mechanism that helps you to trace your logs
- etc.

Web Services UseXmlSerializer But WCF Uses DataContractSerializerwhich is better in Performance as Compared to XmlSerializer.
