I posted the same question quite a few years back, and IIRC got 17 replies from people who had experienced both. All 17 said the stone was worse.

But I doubt it would stay anonymous. I've had more than 40 stones myself, and they vary quite a lot. If you want to know what a stone really feels like, ask somebody who has only had a few. I had a 13 mm stone removed by lithotomy and it was very painful, but I had a stone of about 3 mm that I passed while driving. Big difference.
