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.

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.
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
1080 x 30fps
Canon EOS 1D X Mark II: 2160 x 60fps
8. fastest shutter speed
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Canon EOS-1D C: 0.00000125s
DxO One: 26.2mm
10. higher resolution (screen)
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

23. widest aperture
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
