Sony A58 vs Samsung NX20

These camera kits (18-55mm) cost exactly the same (399euros=530$) in my country.

A58 over NX20:

-Phase detection AF (+ while recording video)

-Better focus peaking for MF

-Better battery life (+330 shots)

-Cheaper lenses

-In-built image stabilization and focus motor

NX20 over A58:

-Larger (+0.3") and crispier screen (+150K pixels)

-Faster burst rate (+3fps)

-Slow motion video (720p at 60fps, 480p at 120fps)

-Metallic lens mount

-Wi-fi (+remote viewfinder via smartphone)

-1/8000 max shutter speed

As you can see, it is very difficult to pick between the two cameras. Videography and photography are of the same importance for me.
If I buy two more Samsung lenses (45mm f/1.8 + 50-200mm f/4-5.6), the NX20 is about 100euros (=130$) more expensive than the A58 (+2 equivalent Sony lenses), so they re essentially equally priced.

P.S.: I posted the same question in Samsung Forum earlier but I realized that there are only a handful of NX owners out there.
