Do any of you have any input on any of this?

The most critical, important question you can ask is: what are you trying to take pictures OF? Where? In what circumstances?

You said: I wanted something small for my purse so I wouldn't always have to be taking pics with my phone when I don't have a larger camera with me.

So what are you usually taking pictures OF? What about the way the phone camera pictures come out is frustrating you?

Are you usually indoors? Outside? Things that are moving? Or very still? With flash? Without? Are you taking pictures, say, of food (good macro, low light), or of landscapes (wider angle, natural light?)

You also seem to like the touchscreens, but not sure why this is important to you... how much do you fiddle around with the settings, and for what reasons? Would simply having a couple of custom settings but no touchscreen matter?

May I recommend (strongly) DPReview?

For example, here's a camera feature search of compact cameras that can shoot RAW:

Of course, that'll depend on your budget too.
