Default Sensor question

Hi guys, so I was snooping around and the issue of sensors came up. What does it mean to have a 1/2 inch EXR CMOS with primary color filter versus a 1/2.3'' Exmor R CMOS sensor? Which one is better?

Sorry if this sounds too broad but I am completely clueless here.

Both imagers are really very close in size. Both imagers are also CMOS based. However, the design of the EXR imager is quite different. Fuji uses a system of pixel pairing in the EXR system. Some like the EXR system, myself included, some do not want to deal with the addition manual adjustments required to get the most from the EXR system.
