I wouldn't call the clear zoom feature an advantage because all it is doing is cropping and resizing which gives no extra true resolution but makes the file sizes bigger. It's a pretty useless feature IMO.

The theory is that that it's not simple resizing. "The theory is that it intelligently interpolates between pixels as it up-sizes. By comparing each image element to a database of patterns it can attempt to add more detail than simple upscaling would allow."

Actually that's what any good resizing algorithm does in post processing. Nothing special there. It's possible that the ones in a photo editor are better because they have more processing power to work with.
