Reasons For

4 Reasons For
17% higher megapixel 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.

65% smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a maximum aperture number of 16. That's 10.4 smaller than the Samsung NX1100 (5.6).
Two more aspheric elements Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a three aspheric element digital camera, whereas the Samsung NX1100 only has one aspheric element.
Much better user reviews
Based on 15 user reviews, the average review score of the Leica Q (Typ 116) is 99%, but the average rating of the Samsung NX1100 is 84% (based on 21 reviews).
4 Reasons For
Bigger digital zoom Edit
The Samsung NX1100 is a 2x digital zoom digital camera. That's 0.2x bigger than the Leica Q (Typ 116) (2x). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

89% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Samsung NX1100 is 921,000 pixels display resolution. That's 817,000 pixels higher than the Leica Q (Typ 116) (921,000 pixels).
GPS (satellite) Edit
The Samsung NX1100 has a GPS (satellite), 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.

Reasons Against

4 Reasons Against

The Leica Q (Typ 116) is a 1.8x digital zoom digital camera. That's 0.2x smaller than the Samsung NX1100 (2x). Read more
