A smart object is just another layer in Photoshop. However, unlike other layers, smart object layers can contain both vector and raster image data, meaning you can alter them as needed without worrying about sacrificing image quality.

The basic difference is after converting it in to smart object, when you scale down a image and then again scale up the same image it do not loose its original properties or quality.

But when you do not convert a image into smart object  and when you decrease the image size, photoshop deletes all the pixels which are no longer required for the image.

Some object or image required this option before editing.
