which one should i go for ?
M won because of > Battery life (Because of a smaller screen) > Better screen DPI and other screen related stuff They didn't even consider the architecture of L :-\
This is bullsh*t. The Xperia L gets a lower score, because it doesn't have an fm transmitter? SERIOUSLY? It's a better phone in every other aspect.
