.WAV File vs. MP3 File

I wanted a special sound file embedded in an Android app every time an event finished.  It was a custom sound with verbal instructions, so I needed an embedded sound file to put into the resource raw folder.  I tested Android and it will take both an MP3 file and a WAV file.  I wanted to know which one was more suitable.

Was I in for a shock, when it came to comparing size.  The wav file was 10,337 KB.  The mp3 file of the same recording was 1,144 KB.  Ten times smaller.  Microsoft is still a piece of crap.  MP3 it is.
