Notable things;

Xperia M can be upgraded to 4.3 whilst the Xperia L is still on 4.2.2,
The Xperia M only has a 4" touch screen whilst the Xperia L has a 4.3" touch screen,
The Xperia M has a slightly higher pixel density (245 vs 228) meaning a slightly crisper display,
The Xperia M has a 5MP camera while the Xperia L has an 8MP camera,
They both have the same quality front-camera (0.3MP),
They have the same processor speeds and cores (both have a Dual core, 1000MHz processor),
They both have the same graphics processor,
They both have the same RAM,
The Xperia M has less built in storage compared to the Xperia L,
The battery life appears to be slightly better in the Xperia M.


Overall it seems to me as though the Xperia L is a more camera focused smartphone while the Xperia M is a more all round smartphone.
If your friend will be taking a lot of photos it is worthwhile going for the L due to the camera and storage space, if they won't be taking many photos then the M is the better option.
