    They arrived today at Vodafone in Germany and weren't on display. I had pre-ordered it - so it was take it or leave it for me. No, I couldn't try it out beforehand.

    Return it. Get a phone will less features so it's lighter.

Goodbye Nokia :-(

    The Lumia's so heavy, I don't feel comfortable putting it in my car-mount - I'm scared it my rip it off the window and get destroyed.

    tomtoms and garmins tend to stay attached to their window mounts pretty easily.

    But Im pretty sure the Lumia 920 weighs way more than those things.

    The "8X for 1/3 less money" argument doesn't hold anymore either it seems.

    I was surprised at how NOT heavy the 920 felt when I lifted it from its box this afternoon. It's roughly 50 grams heavier than my Galaxy Nexus, but doesn't really feel like it in the hand. In the pocket is another story, but I've had a hard time putting it down ever since I got it.

    It's a really solid feeling phone, and the weight feels about right and more of a mark of quality than a strike against it. But again, that's in the hand. In the pocket it feels like a curved price of smoothed granite, but perhaps a bit lighter.

    Agreed. I kept trying to see how reviewers thought it was heavy. It feels great in the hand. Gonna have to be a phone that u put in ur back pocket though.

    Without a case, my 920 is the same size, maybe a little thinner, than my Focus S with its case. My case is just a simple one that goes on the back and then wraps around to protect the screen. After hearing everyone talk about how durable the 920 is, I thought I could just use it without a case and therefore not add any bulk (only a little weight) to what I am used to. Well, less than 12 hours after getting my shiny new white 920, it dropped onto a tile floor and shattered the screen. That's why I'm typing this back on my Focus. As beautiful as the phone is, if you want to avoid paying an insurance claim, get a case. Unfortunately, I think that might be what pushes the bulk over the limit for me.

    After everything I've read, I was expecting the phone to be heavier. It's a non-issue for me, and I'm really very surprised that it's become such a big deal. A friend of mine has an IPhone 4, and picking them up individually, the IPhone seems just as heavy. If you hold one in each hand, you can tell that the 920 is heavier, but it's not a dramatic difference, in my opinion.

    My buddy, who has lots of Apple stuff, liked the 920 quite a bit. He was impressed by how smoothly the display scrolled, and in reference to the OS & Interface said he was surprised that Microsoft could put something out that was so nice. My initial impressions have been positive, but this is my first smartphone, and I haven't really had a chance to use it that much.

    I preferred the look and feel of the 920 compared to the 8X. They had the new Galaxy Note 2 in the store, and that thing seemed too big to hold comfortably with one hand.

    Sorry to hear that. Pretty much any phone, if hit at just the right angle, will have the screen shatter.

    My wife just got her red 920. That thing feels solid. But I've pondered getting a bumper (not full case) for her just because there's always that chance it falls on a hard surface at that bad angle.

The "smile" gets even thicker in the middle. I owned a galaxy note, which is about 7g lighter. It was usable sure, and I had no problems holding it, but going from that back to a normal size phone that's 50g lighter still makes a big difference. Just because you have no problem with it, doesn't mean it couldn't be much better. I'm sure we wouldn't be having this conversation if the lumia 920 was 140g. No one would be complaining about the lack of weight. That's why this whole argument just sounds overly defensive. It's not that people should deal with the weight, it's people who don't care about the weight that should deal with the people who do, because frankly they are the majority. If Nokia or its fanbase wants to continue playing this game, they need to loosen up and take the criticism and change a little. Posting angry youtube videos is just offputting.

    And yes I got tired of waiting for the lumia 920 and got a galaxy s iii (samsung fanboy! whine whine). Frankly I was blown away by the screen. It was leagues ahead of the galaxy s ii, which was horrible since it turned to crap below 50% brightness and there were lines and artifacts and so much other crap. The note didn't look that great either. The screen on the s iii is more subdued, but has much better contrast and color at lower brightness, and best of all, it actually looks even and polished. The lumia 920 is probably going to be just like every other IPS screen. I didn't like the One X screen, since it exhibited the same low contrast and annoying uneven lighting and reflection. The s iii is just completely flat, literally.

    Who knows. I might just sell the s iii and get the lumia 920 once I check it out. I do like the solid build quality of Nokias. The s iii is light and thin, but mine came with a deep scratch on the botto mright, and the stupid snap on back is uneven on one side. It's also not the most comfortable thing to hold, since there's frankly nothing to hold on to, and the seams make it worse. I can never take a picture without pushing a million buttons. But the screen is just so gorgeous. And it takes sharper daylight pictures and video. That's why I hate compromising.
    Stopped reading when you said the 920 was thicker than the 900. Because it isn't.

    Just got my Cyan 920 in. I have been using a SG3 for the last 6 months.

    First impressions is that it is noticeably heavy but I had an old HTC Evo 4G which feels about the same. The size and shape is comfortable. The thicker body actually makes it easier to hold it without hands between shoulder and ear.

    The only thing I'm worried about with the extra weight is that it seems like it might be easier for it to slip out of my hands. It feels like it wants to slide down and out of my grip. My GS3 is so light that I don't have to use that much pressure to hold it.

    I also think the material of the matte cyan is a little more slippery than a glossy finish. My second choice was the glossy white and might switch it for that one.

    I'm definitely keeping it while still using my GS3. Can't use it as my daily driver because there are a few apps that I use for work that aren't available on windows phones yet. Once they are it will become my daily work phone too.
