Well, I will tell you compared to the NX5U.

1. It has the exact same chassis. Same layout, ergonomics, etc. Viewfinder, etc.
2. It has a zoom ratio of about 13 to 1 compared to 20 to 1 with NX5. This comes from reducing the maximum zoom. So the wide angle is the same, but it doesn't zoom as much as the 5.
3. It has a 1 inch sensor, verses the NX5 1/3 inch. So the Bokeh should be better. I tried to see that in the booth, but really since I didn't have the nx5 with me, it is hard to compare this particular item.
4. It records to regular SD cards, same as nx5
5. Low light seemed about the same, but I couldn't compare it.
6. It does have face detection, which nx5u did not have, so this is a big improvement.

So, it is a compromise of sort. I predict it will be as durable as the nx5u.
