Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon A10 is significantly lighter (112g ) than the Sony HX50V which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix A10 nor Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V 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
Sony HX50V's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon A10's 2.7" screen.
