I really like the simplicity in the design of the Nexus 4. For starters it has a really good built quality but does not feel expensive enough for this cost. But it is a really comfortable phone to hold. The rubbery edge gives good support to your hands but is not a good addition if you consider looks. Sony Xperia SP is rather a purely rectangular phone. The delicately curved back with a brilliant matte finish makes it a more disable phone than Nexus 4 in terms of body and design. Design- Sony Xperia SP.


Phones in the mid-range have amazing displays and so do both Nexus 4 and Sony Xperia SP. The stiff competition has pushed smartphone makers to make amazing technology available for a lower cost. The end result is 720p displays for which you don’t have to pay a fortune. Nexus 4 has a really amazing display, the software design helps it portray in a better way.

I really found cameras on both the devices rather average. It is nothing amazing and don’t differ much from the starting ranges of phones. Google LG Nexus 4 and Sony Xperia SP both carry 8MP sensors and both can take pictures that look good but not great. The user interface does not make much of a difference here either so, it’s a tie.
