Reasons For

6 Reasons For
17% higher megapixel count Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 24.2MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Samsung NX1100 (20.3MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

4.7MP more total megapixel count Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 26.3MP digital camera. That's 4.7MP more than the Samsung NX1100 (21.6MP).
75% higher maximum ISO speed Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 51,200 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 38,400 higher than the Samsung NX1100 (12,800).
170mAh bigger battery capacity Edit

3 Reasons For
GPS Edit
The Samsung NX1100 has a GPS, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) does not. Read more

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Lighter Edit
The Samsung NX1100 has a weight of 222g, but the Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 590g digital camera (368g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
