3 Reasons For
Higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D7200 is a 24.2MP digital camera. That's 10MP higher than the Nikon D3100 (24.2MP). 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.

A little better expert reviews
The average expert review score of the Nikon D7200 is 85%, but the average rating of the Nikon D3100 is 83% (based on 99 reviews).
Considerably better user reviews
The average user review score of the Nikon D7200 is 96%, but the average rating of the Nikon D3100 is 80% (based on 14 reviews).
