Are the UI and speed of operation the only differences ? I want to know if the functionality is the same or not.

What do you mean of functionality?

Lubuntu is an Ubuntu OS with the same repository sources, but with a different desktop environment and set of default applications (packages).

In the matter of desktop, you can also install LXDE and its components on Ubuntu either to try it beside Unity.
