11.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
12.A tad bigger screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
13.Sizably less shutter lag
0.22svs 16.33s (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.
14.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
15.Notably less startup delay
1.8svs 34.8s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
16.Sizably more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
17.Considerably greater zoom range
18xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
18.Considerably longer maximum focal length
450mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
19.Significantly shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
