    More weight in a phone means you can hold it steadier og thus take better pictures.

    Just my 185 gram's

    Personally i dont care about the weight, i care about what the phone and the OS can do, that is what matters. There are people who are gonna groan and moan about the weight simply because they need to find a fault in the phone to justify not buying or returning the phone.

    The weight is such because of the camera module in the phone, i will definitely sacrifice having a big more weight for a powerful camera module any day. Having such a powerful camera module is a huge benefit to me and the overall experience of having a phone with a potentially great OS and the most awesome camera in the mobile industry in its class. So its like an all in one device , precisely what i and many people want.

    If weight is such a problem for people, then go buy and iphone or some other phone. I am tired of people coming on the forums taking the **** out the Lumia 920 simply because they can find no other fault in the phone.

    I think you took the meaning of post in the wrong way. He is complimenting the phone on it's weight and not complaining about it. I agree with the OP that because the extra weight, it does make it easier to hold the phone more steady for taking pictures..

    I didnt take the meaning of the post the wrong way, i agree with him on everypoint, part of my post is directed to those people who complain about the weight including those bloggers who reviewed the phone. I would rather have a phone with some weight to it for the reasons i stated and the fact that it will be able to take the beating.

    Now i am certain my 920 can take a beating and survive vs lets say and iphone 5 which is so light that it very well might not survive as long as the 920 would

    I wholeheartedly agree with OP here. Photographers also make the same argument regarding heavy cameras+heavy lense vs. smaller cameras+lighter lenses.

    People who complain about the weight seriously need to use the phone for a couple days and see for themselves. Looking at specs alone, I thought the weight would be a problem. Turns out it's not. At all. I personally don't go as far as to say I appreciate the added weight, but I don't notice it during daily use.

    Not true!

    Try taking a pic with one hand. Gone are the days of one-click pics. Pressing the camera button which is right at the bottom right of the phone with one hand while you focus that 185g is a task at times. That won't happen with 8x.

    But again, if you own such a beautiful camera why won't you stand still and hold it properly with two hands and make at least some effort to click a picture ;)

    So you obviously didnt know that you can snap a picture buy pressing the camera button OR TAPPING ON THE SCREEN.

    I usually prefer tapping on the screen to take pictures instead of the camera button as it is more stable.

    Used WP for two years now. So I knew that. But did you know tapping on screen actually adjusts focus? If you tap at wrong spot your focus changes! Hence again, if you just want a random teenager pic, its the way to go. But if you want good pic with such an amazing camera holding phone with one hand and tapping by thumb wont work.

    I had concerns about the weight and size of the 920 too, until I actually held one in my hand and used it for a while. Now it's not an issue. Would i like it to be a bit lighter and smaller? Yes, but it's hardly an encumbrance. I don't notice it any more than my 900, in fact it is easier to hold in my hand than the 900 because they did a better job of shaping it ergonomics-wise.

    I do find my hand getting tired when using it in bed, when I try to keep the phone from falling in my face. It would be nice to have a lighter phone, but if a lighter phone means I'll have less battery, cheaper build quality, or less impressive camera, then no, I'll take the extra 70g please. Sometimes you just can't have everything.......
