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)
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.

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.
6.Significantly longer battery life
600shotsvs 516shots (the average)
vs 4400shots (best: Nikon D3x)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
7.Clearly better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,003 x 36.4fps (the average)
vs 2,160 x 60fps (best: Canon EOS 1D X Mark II)
8.Has WiFi

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
11.Sizably 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.
12.Has timelapse function
Yesvs No (89% don't have it)
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.
13.A tad bigger screen size
3.2"vs 2.9" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
14.Has GPS
Yesvs No (85% don't have it)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
15.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
16.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
17.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
18.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
19.Has manual shutter speed

This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
20.Newer EXPEED version
4vs 3 (the average)
vs 6 (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Newer image processors are better at processing multiple tasks simultaneously, and can produce higher quality images with better low-light performance and faster AF.
21.Has flip-out vari-angle LCD display
much more convenient to take pictures from different angles
