Aehyehuehue. Xperia wins. Only on this comparison. Lumia has a better battery capacity, better câmera aperture, better screen(ips vs tft) back iluminated and much more sensible. Even using almost The same processor and less Ram memory lumia runs much more smoothly than xperia, and this because Windows Phone doesn't need The same amount of nemory than Android. Wel, this os my opinion.
