Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon ELPH 190 IS is significantly lighter (83g ) than the Olympus TG-870 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Olympus TG-870's 3.00" LCD screen is slightly larger than Canon ELPH 190 IS's 2.7 screen.
In addition to the size advantage, Olympus TG-870 LCD screen also has a Tilting feature
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels. On the other hand, Canon ELPH 190 IS has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to TG-870.
