As well as being compared against other mirrorless, the Samsung NX10 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, pro DSLRs and pro digicams. The Samsung NX10's top rivals come from Samsung (such as the NX3000 and the NX300) and Sony (such as the Alpha ILC-3000 and the Alpha A6000)

compared toMirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Samsung NX10 compared to other mirrorless interchangeable-lens competitors include: it has higher quality type of viewfinder (digital vs none), has significantly less startup delay (1100 ms vs 2000 ms), has an OLED screen (OLED vs LCD) and has a built-in flash.

However, on average it is slightly more noisy at high ISO (572 ISO vs 942 ISO), has significantly lower image quality (63.0 vs 75.0), has a slightly smaller screen (3" vs 3.3"), doesn't have image stabilization (none vs lens) and has slightly less color depth (22.8 bits vs 23.6 bits).
