Average Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the Sony DSC-HX400V has a fairly average display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras of a comparable age and type to this camera.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the D5500 ($466.89) (3.2"), or the D810A ($3,054.99) (3.2") both from Nikon or the Pentax 645Z ($6,188.88) (3.2") which is also higher rated.
