20 vs. 41 megapixel

With PureView, the extra megapixels aren't about the final image size. They're about starting with a lot so you can shrink down to a regular-size (3-8 megapixel) image with lossless zoom and/or improved noise/sensitivity/sharpness.

So with 20 megapixels instead of 41, you can't zoom in as much, and the other benefits aren't as great.
