    First impressions. The phone is HHHHHHHHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEE! The thickness, weight, and height were perfectly fine but the thing is WIDE. It is the same width as the GS3 but I think combined with the lack of tapered edges, thickness, and width the phone seems like WAY bigger than any other phone released that doesn't have the name Vu or Note in it.

    People on the fence about the size should definitely handle it before ordering it online. It is effectively larger than any 4.7 or 4.8 inch phone.

    I had this phone reserved and shipped to a Rogers store on October 31st, lucky they tried overcharging me or I would have been stuck with a phone that is way over my size limit. I guess I have to settle for an HTC 8x or a Nexus 4.

    The 920 is barely wider than the 8X and the Nexus 4 is almost identical in width...

    I am aware of the actually measurements but the physical dimensions do not always tell the full story.

    I haven't handled a Nexus 4 yet but the Optimus G feels much smaller than the 920, by quite a lot too.

    Any chance that you can confirm the next batch of Roger Lumia 920 will be unlocked?

    Couldn't disagree more. My better half has a gs3 and the 920 simply feels better in the hand. I've held the optimus also and i found that unit far from ergonomic. All about preference I guess.

    The Optimus G which is 1.2 mm wider...feels smaller? Because of tapered edges? What?

    I believe you have a severe case of smallhandsitus.

    I've held both my 920 and an 8x at the same time, and an 820 as well. They all felt about the same, just minor form differences. None felt too large.
