1.Clearly more megapixels (photo)
50.6MPvs 16.7MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Distinctly larger sensor
36 x 24mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Distinctly more focus points
61vs 37 (the average)
vs 425 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
4.Significantly longer battery life
700shotsvs 516shots (the average)
vs 4400shots (best: Nikon D3x)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
5.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (76% don't have it)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
6.Much higher pixel density
480ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
7.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
8.Vastly higher resolution
833x1,294pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
9.Has timelapse function
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)

10.Slightly bigger screen size
3.2"vs 2.9" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
11.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
12.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
13.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
14.Can be charged via standard USB cable
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
15.Clearly less shutter lag
0.059svs 16.330s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
16.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
17.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
18.A little bit more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 98% (the average)
vs 100% (best: Sony A7)
With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
19.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
20.Appreciably more lenses available
56vs 21 (the average)

21.Noticeably more cross-type focus points
21vs 13 (the average)
vs 169 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.
