7. 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.

8. longer battery life

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

9. video recording

10. has a stereo microphone

13. pixel density

14. width

17. thickness

20. 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.
