than the average

1.Noticeably more megapixels (photo)
18.2MPvs 16.7MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Significantly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
3.Has a flip-out screen
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
4.Significantly 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)
5.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
6.A lot higher pixel density
462ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
7.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
86.6mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
9.Sizably higher resolution
831x1,108pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
10.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
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.
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 bit 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.
13.Has GPS
Yesvs No (85% don't have it)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
14.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.
15.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
16.Vastly 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.Substantially greater zoom range
30xvs 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.Reasonably wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
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.
19.Considerably longer maximum focal length
810mmvs 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.
20.A bit shorter minimum focal length
27mmvs 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.
21.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (90% don't have it)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
