APS-C vs 1": How much does sensor size matter for compact cameras?

I want to get a smaller camera that more pocketable than my old lumix gf1 and 20mm 1.7 lens. I am super interested in the Fujifilm xf10 because it's small and has an aps-c sensor. I like natural light photos, lots of inside ones at parties, etc. but the sony RX100 (at least iii) is also tempting and cheaper and people seem to be over the moon for that camera even in low-ish light.

Does sensor size matter that much for indoor stuff? I'd get better DOF and better high ISO performance from the APS-C I assume... but enough to matter?

Fujifilm XF10 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 Sony RX100
