Xperia SP boasts of bodywork that is made of plastic with an aluminum trim somewhat similar to the Xperia Z but lacking Dragontrail glass panel. Xperia L exudes an angular fascia and a curved back panel which is almost similar to the Xperia T.

Storage capacity of both these models is 8GB which can be expanded to 32GB via microSD card. Xperia SP features 4G LTE service which isn't available on the Xperia L (HSPA+).
