8. image quality

A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.

9. maximum light sensitivity

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.

10. video recording

11. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

15. pixel density

16. width

17. dynamic range

The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.

20. thickness

23. has built-in optical image stabilization

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
