While it is indeed true that ARM code is indeed smaller, even if the kernels wherewere not compressed, the kernel codes in ARM are often custom made, and have far less code activated, than in the Intel counterpart versions (e.g. Intel has a lot of video cards, even if just the modules stubs, while usually the custom ARM kernel only has to deal with the one that is present in the SoC).

The ARM opcodes are also bulky, compared say to a MIPS, since the ARM is a cheap processor with specialised instructions dedicated to video decoding (around 30% of the processor die is dedicated to them).

So in reality, to compare effectively the binary kernels, you have to compile them with identical options, and keep them uncompressed (or uncompress the resulting vmlinuzxxxfile).
