Ricoh WG-6 has a 20.0MP 1/2.3" (6.17 x 4.55 mm ) sized BSI-CMOS sensor . On the other hand, Olympus TG-310 has a 14.0MP 1/2.3-inch (6.17 x 4.55 mm ) sized CCD sensor and features TruePic III+ processor.
Ricoh WG-6's sensor provides 6MP more than Olympus TG-310'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 WG-6 and TG-310 sensor size comparison.
Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus TG-310 have the same sensor sizes so they will provide same level of control over the depth of field when used with same focal length and aperture. On the other hand, since Olympus TG-310 has 46% larger pixel area (2.04µm2 vs 1.39µm2) compared to Ricoh WG-6, it has larger pixel area to collect light hence potential to have less noise in low light / High ISO images.
