Cheap alternatives

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.weight

319g

298g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
3.screen resolution

1040k dots

1228k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
4.has a touch screen
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
5.has a flash
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
6.Has an electronic viewfinder (EVF)
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display which shows the framed image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image; they can be more compact; it's easier to focus with digital zoom; and they sometimes offer extra info on the display (such as a live histogram).

Optics

1.sensor size

13.2 x 8.8mm

8.8 x 13.2mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
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.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
4.maximum light sensitivity

12800 ISO

12800 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
6.has AF tracking
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 60fps

2160 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.Has timelapse function
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
5.supports AVCHD format
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.has stereo speakers
Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
