We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($299.50), the Samsung ST200F, and the HP P550 is also worth considering.

If you want a larger screen size then you might want to consider the Galaxy EK-GC100 (4.8"), or the Galaxy Camera EK-GC110 ($29.99) (4.8") both from Samsung or the Nikon Coolpix P520 (3.2") which is also higher rated.
