Developers are concerned with just the development phase while architects are concerned with the design, development, testing and releasing phases.

Developers are knowledgeable while architects are powerful

Developers need to have in-depth knowledge of all the concepts being used while for architects it's okay if they don't have the in-depth knowledge. 

These are a few difference I know. Please add more if you guys come across any more.

Architects are people who plan what to do and how to do. Developers are people who actually do it. While building an application, you need to have a proper understanding of what you are building. Architect design the application, how each module will be built, how these modules will be integrated, etc.

Developers will write programs to build these modules and integrate them and build the whole application.

Hi,

​An Architect role is responsible for turning a concept, typically identified as a gap in the enterprise architecture or an initiative on a portfolio roadmap, into an implementable plan for delivery. A person in this role establishes the business issues to be solved and evaluates the options to solve the issues.

The developer (also called an engineer, depending on the subject matter) is the person who creates the product. This is the person who writes and packages code, configures hardware and software, installs the network, and other similar hands-on tasks. An experienced lead developer or engineer will lay out the structure of a software package so that the individual programs interoperate smoothly, will debug coding issues, and make decisions on where in the product functions should occur (i.e., application vs database, virtual vs physical, etc.).
