For one, it has phase detection, which makes it faster in acquiring focus, which personally is a very big deal when you're on the move and trying to get that one shot. And just by looking at the Differences section, I don't even have to elaborate to make my point. The only major reason why the HX300 scored higher was that it was more popular, that's pretty much it.

How can you say featureless, It is biased comment.
