Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, We are going to illustrate Ricoh WG-6 and Leica X-U side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Ricoh WG-6 has external dimensions of 118 x 66 x 33 mm (4.65 x 2.6 x 1.3″) and weighs 246 g (0.54 lb / 8.68 oz) (including batteries). Leica X-U has external dimensions of 140 x 79 x 88 mm (5.51 x 3.11 x 3.46″) and weighs 635 g (1.40 lb / 22.40 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Leica X-U. Ricoh WG-6 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 22mm narrower, 13mm shorter and 55mm thinner than Leica X-U.
Here is the back view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Leica X-U.

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh WG-6 and Leica X-U's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Leica X-U sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. Ricoh WG-6's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to X-U.
