9 Reasons For
3.9MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 is a 20.1MPMP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Samsung WB50F (16.2MPMP). 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.

More total megapixel count Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S3700 is a 20.48MPMP digital camera. That's 3.88MP more than the Samsung WB50F (16.6MPMP).

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.
