23.5 x 15.6mmvs 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.Lots more focus points
39vs 37 (the average)
vs 425 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)

6.Considerably higher maximum light sensitivity
25600ISOvs 19130ISO (the average)
vs 3280000ISO (best: Nikon D5)
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.
7.Sizably better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,003 x 36.4fps (the average)

14.Vastly wider dynamic range
13.9Evsvs 11.8Evs (the average)
vs 14.8Evs (best: Nikon D810A)
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.
15.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)

17.Has timelapse function
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)

18.Somewhat bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
