DPReview posted their full review of the ultra-compact Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II. While they found a lot of good, some things did disappoint the reviewer.

From their conclusion (emphasis mine):

The PowerShot G9 X II is very appealing: it’s as small a traditionally styled camera with a 1″ sensor as you’ll find and its touch interface makes it easy to pick up and use. It has a broad feature set, generally responsive performance and shooting modes for both beginners and more advanced users.

[…] the G9 X II is let down by its lens, JPEG processing and battery life that requires buying at least one spare. If you’re set on a Canon, moving up to the PowerShot G7 X II is a smart idea, assuming that you have an extra $200 available. The Sony RX100 and RX100 II are also worth consideration, though we think that Canon offers a better user experienceRead the review…

It’s not all bad, the sensor produces “vivid, pleasing color” and there is “fast burst shooting with large buffer”. DPReview’s sample photos are here.
