    Default Recommendations for pocket camera

    My old pocket camera is kaput.
    Can I ask for recommendations for a small pocket camera :

    Small form factor - very important as I have a big dslr for main shooting
    AF must be v fast
    Built in flash
    Fast lens and reasonably wide zoom
    Tough - nice to have

    Mirror less options ok if they aren't big but I wil prefer something I can really stick in my pocket.

    Budget - well so long as it's not silly will consider.

    Thanks !
    Nikon D750; FM2; FG; 55mm Micro Nikkor; 28-300 VR; 70-200 VR; Nikon V1 + 10-30mm

    My old (currently still having it) small camera is the Canon powershot S90. Used it for my past overseas tour.
    Thinking of upgrading to canon G7x if have enough spare cash.

    But my current everyday pocket camera is my phone.
    The Xiaomi Mi4i. With f/2.0 back facing camera.
