Well zeyad, in my opinion, i think that both phones are just as good as each other. Since the xperia m recently got a firmware update to 4.3, it has just been fantastic. If you look at it in terms of development, both phones are in the low activity section, i dont know why, but it just seems that way. So i would personally recommend the xperia m as it is 100$ cheaper, with no difference to the xperia l (except screen size and camera i think), and you definitely get value for your money.

Hope this helped

i bought the z1 compact anyway ..
april fools:
i will try as much as i can to get the L since it has a bigger screen and a faster chipset and a bigger storage and a better camera
the m here is 280$
the l here is 350$
so much overpriced the two of them

Xperia L really have a bigger screen, bigger storage and better camera, but the chipset isn't faster. Same GPU (Adreno 305) and same CPU (dual-core Krait running at 1GHz)...

Have you looked full specs of these chipsets? The difference between the two is that the MSM8230 from Xperia L support camera modules with higher MP and has 1080p encoding (needed because of the better 8MP camera with 1080p recording that Xperia L got). But if you look at the detailed GPU and CPU specs, the speeds are the same as Xperia M. Yes, the MSM8230 has models clocked higher at 1.2GHz, but this isn't the case for Xperia L, clocked at 1GHz...

I would get the M, it's brilliant with the latest firmware.
The L is buggy as hell.

If you really have money to buy xperia l, i suggest you, try to get a used Xperia sp in good condition, check its specs and also development in xda.
