The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
6.17 x 4.55mm
Polaroid Snap: 81.2 x 25.4mm
3. focus points
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.
Sony Alpha a7 III: 693
4. continuous shooting at high resolution
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II: 60fps
5. 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.

6. longer battery life
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
Nikon D3x: 4400shots
7. video recording
720 x 30fps
Canon EOS 1D X Mark II: 2160 x 60fps
HTC Re: 65.5g
9. color depth
The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
HP Photosmart R927: 42bits
10. fastest shutter speed
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV: 1/32000s
11. pixel density
Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S: 1437.5ppi

Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S: 3680 x 2760px
14. 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.
