I live in Brentwood (next to Santa Monica) in LA, and so I was just out in Phoenix for the first time and I would say there are some similarities but with a mix more of Orange County in terms of sprawl, wide open spaces, whereas "the valley" (aka San Fernando Valley) is a bit more dense. Also the mountains in LA are a bit higher then the mini mtns (aka hills I like to see them as). Though further north of Phoenix then you get into the bigger mtns.

Phoenix and Los Angeles areas are similar in some ways because both are very spread out and cover a large land area, a lot of which is desert terrain.

The area around where I live in the west valley can be compared more to the San Bernardino area east of Los Angeles.
