4 things that the A does better than the Ricoh GR

From PCmag:

"To my eye the Raw files from the Coolpix A were a bit cleaner and captured a bit more detail than those from the GR at ISO 6400, but it's not a dramatic difference."

"At default settings the Nikon Coolpix A edges out the GR in terms of image detail at ISO 3200 and 6400."

"Default JPG image quality at ISO 3200 and above is the one area where the Coolpix A manages to edge out the GR, albeit only slightly."

From dpreview:

Our early impressions of the image quality are that the JPEG engine is not doing as well as Nikon's in terms of getting the sensor's capability into a JPEG.

Does this mean that the A is better?

Specially if the price of the A comes down.
