Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Samsung MV800 is significantly lighter (88g ) than the Canon G9 X which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Canon PowerShot G9 X nor Samsung MV800 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G9 X and Samsung MV800's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Samsung MV800 features a Tilting screen
