If by slightly bigger you mean just like Hummer H1 is slightly bigger than Toyota Corolla, then yes it is "slightly bigger".
I have both of them in front of me and I took both on month long trip so I know what the size and weight difference is between the two. It's very significant.
We also have different understanding of what a "compact" camera is. Just because you can fit your camera in your pants pocket with a huge bulge in your pants that it looks like you have a giant tumor, doesn't mean that it's pocket-able or "compact"
Guess only cameras you've owned are what you call "compacts". Have you lugged around a full size DSLR, 3 lenses, and a flash on your long trip? I've had the S100 and RX100 at the same time for couple of months and essentially they're the same size, RX100 is .3 in thicker mostly due to lens protrusion, but in practice they feel the same. If you can feel the weight difference, more power to you.
Apparently the size of the camera is directly related to what OTHER camera a user owns.
If you come from a world of P&S cameras then you'll nitpick over millimeters and call the size difference between the S100 and RX100 to be "significant".
If you come from the world of DSLR's where you can't even go out without a lens bag then the size difference between the S100 and RX100 is inconsequential.
I'm not understanding that guys agenda in trying to "prove" the RX100 isn't pocketable but BOTH the S100 and RX100 are in the same class in terms of size, so the only "significant" difference is in the photo quality. (But who really cares about that stuff, right?)
