sometimes one will find out that having a pocket camera is really fun, especially those cameras from smart phones...

RX100.

I also have and often use a G15 and a G1X, but don't consider either to be true pocket cameras, although the G15 comes close.

Also still have and sometimes use an S95, but primarily because I bought an underwater housing for it and that's more or less become its exclusive use.

I understand those that mention handling difficulties with the RX100, but I personally haven't found it to be a true problem, I just taught myself how to handle it without dropping it (not that hard), and have been very pleased with image quality for a camera that actually does fit in your pocket. I have successfully produced and sold relatively large prints from it. Better, in my opinion, than those produced from either the G15 or the G1X. 

Bottom line, for me, RX100, followed by S100 (agree with Neuro on S110).

Some pics from G11.  G15 is a little bit better than G11 but I really miss the swivel screen.  It's handy for landscapes and macros.  Hopefully they bring it back in G16.

RX100.

Before I had the Samsung EX1 (TL500); was ok, but the Sony is much better.
The Sony is smaller, less weight, and most important: IQ is much better.

Interestingly enough, we went through just this discussion in our family (and I used this thread for some of my input to it  ;D ).  My son and daughter-in-law were looking to upgrade from her very basic P&S.  She is not very knowledgeable but wanted to have the ability to learn and do things manually and get reasonable IQ but wanted it to be a small camera that would go into her pocket or at least her purse.  After discussions about all the options that have been mentioned here, they went to a "big box store" to look for themselves. 

They came home with a Sony NEX-F3!  A little bigger than what they'd planned but it fit their needs!  I know having used an NEX-7 that this mirrorless camera does produce some excellent IQ.

I bought a pocket camera based on the fact that I'm certified as an open water scuba diver. I wanted something I could take diving and snorkeling and not break the bank. At the time I was looking, I ended up buying a Nikon Coolpix AW100. It's been a great little camera so far. It's 16mp, shockproof, GPS logging and shoots HD video as well, even 10m underwater.

I am seriously considering the Fujifilm X100s. To me thats the most promising camera of this type when Leica and Sony RX 100 is out of reach due to price. If Canon was to release a new M with FF and viewfinder, that would probably be the choice.

The camera in my iphone is as good or better than many of the ones mentioned here, and it's with me all the time.  I still keep a Leica d-lux2 in the glove compartment of my car should I happen to stumble upon a worthy subject, but that's happening less and less often with the results I get from the
iphone.

I went in another direction since I started this thread, spent the cash on an X-Pro 1. The 35mm 1.4 I got with it is a great piece of glass. I'll be sure to check out your review.
