Sony A6300 has a 24.0MP APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm ) sized CMOS sensor and features BIONZ X processor. On the other hand, Sony NEX-3 has a 14.0MP APS-C (23.4 x 15.6 mm ) sized CMOS sensor and features Bionz processor. Sony A6300's sensor provides 10MP more than Sony NEX-3's sensor, which gives a significant advantage in real life. You can print your images larger or crop more freely.
On the other hand, please keep in mind that Max sensor resolution is not the only determinant of resolving power. Factors such as the optical elements, low pass filter, pixel size and sensor technology also affects the final resolution of the captured image.
Below you can see the A6300 and NEX-3 sensor size comparison.
Sony A6300 and Sony NEX-3 have almost the same sensor size so none of them has any significant advantage over other in providing control over depth of field when used with same focal length and aperture.
