Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, we are going to illustrate the Nikon L31 and Sony WX10 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon L31 has external dimensions of 96 x 59 x 29 mm (3.78 x 2.32 x 1.14″) and weighs 160 g (0.35 lb / 5.64 oz) (including batteries). Sony WX10 has external dimensions of 95 x 54 x 23 mm (3.74 x 2.13 x 0.91″) and weighs 161 g (0.35 lb / 5.68 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Nikon L31 and the Sony WX10. Sony WX10 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 1mm narrower, 5mm shorter and 6mm thinner than Nikon L31.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Nikon L31 and Sony WX10.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon L31 and Sony WX10.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon L31 is 1g lighter than the Sony WX10 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither the Nikon Coolpix L31 nor Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10 provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Sony WX10's 2.80" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon L31's 2.7" screen.
Unfortunately, both cameras has fixed screens so they don't tilt or flip in directions.
