    i really wanted a lumia 920 since the first day nokia presented it, and today one friend of mine finally got it.
    Yeah, it's amazing, great camera, great display, great audio, i loved all of it! Except.. the dimension! It's wayyy toooooo biiiiig, if i put it in my pocket i can't sit well (my pockets are not that big) and i always have the impression of having a little tablet on my hand, not a phone :(

    Lumia 800 has the perfect sized phone, and i really hope to see that pure view camera in a lumia 800's sized phone, i can renounce to super sensitive touch, wireless charging, 60hz display, but not the camera :(

    I'm the only one thinking that?

    I think it's just the perfect size, not that much bigger than my iPhone 4.

    Too big? Nope.

    The 8X is a lot longer, so I doubt if it would do a better job of fitting in a small pocket.

    It is too big for one handed use IMO, but my hand used to cramp up using the 3GS (terrible ergonomics compared to the ip4). I have small little hands tho. I just two hand my 920. It isn't heavy at all, weight is definitely distributed very well.

    I would love an 800 sized phone with this camera. My friend has the N9 which is similar and boy its compact.

    Back to the L920... I guess its built for people with larger hands annd pockets. For instance I can use it well with one hand, I do use my nose to go Back though. :P

    @Davidkoh - it's way bigger than an iPhone 4! Not that this is a problem - i just typed this one-handed with no trouble and i don't have big hands.

    you are asking a forum of 920 owners if we agree the phone is too big?


    yes. We all think its too big.

    It is just a teeny bit oversized for me, primarily because its a little slippery. I need to shift it a little to get my thumb out to the upper corner, which is fine is my hands are warm or its a little humid. If its cold and dry,though, watch out. I'm waiting for a Zagg back cover to help with that.
    One thing that surprises me is that for as large as this phone is I'll be damned if the portrait keyboard doesn't feel almost as small as the iPhone's; so weird.
    Overall I love the size- my iPhone 4 feels like a toy now.

    I can see that, for some, the 920 may be too large. I also think that the trend toward larger and larger smartphones is not necessarily a good thing. There are good smartphones in smaller sizes: the Galaxy SIII Mini, iPhone 5, and Droid RAZR M all come to mind. Compared with the Galaxy SIII Mini and Droid RAZR M, the Lumia 810/820/822 is certainly a competitor. In fact, the only reason why I purchased the 920 for my wife and I instead of the 820 was the camera - not because we don't have a good camera (we do), but because we needed something as close to a basic point-and-shoot replacement for quick photos of our 19 month old son (we don't normally carry around our megazoom!). We both love the 920, but there are times where I think we both wouldn't mind if it was a bit smaller.

    Some people think it's too big, some people don't. I did, so I tried an 8X which felt too light and... I dunno... flimsy for me. I settled on the 820, which is just like a 920 only not so big. :)

    The 920 is HOT though. I wish the 820 had the same form-factor, that it was just a smaller 920. That would be rad. :)

    I find it easier to hold one handed than the 900...For me the size and weight give me a sense that it is a quality phone and build.

    I feel that it's just about right. I probably wouldn't ever go beyond a 4.5" screen (depends on the size of the bezel). I don't know how people can stand using some of these huge Android devices that are pushing 5" or more!

    I'm a small woman who carries a very small purse (basically a wallet on a string) and have always preferred a small phone. My fav of all times was my little Veer. I was pretty much set on the 800 when I went to look at them. But after looking, holding and playing I decided on the 920. I really thought the weight and sheer size would bother me. Plus I thought I wanted the SD card slot. I also wanted the wireless charging and thought I would just buy the case for the 800.

    I've had my 920 for just over two weeks. After considering that the wireless charging case would just add to the weight and after actually holding the 920, and finding that it does indeed fit in my little purse I'm very happy with my choice. However I can see how for a guy who only uses pockets it might be a bit large. That's why choice is so great, one size does not fit all!

    i wear pants that have decent size pockets in them so when i put my lumia 920 in them it fits very well. if i had a tablet i could not put a tablet in my pants pocket so it doesnt remind me of a tablet. i use to get a lil worried with my iphone 4 that if i put it in my pocket and i sat wrong i might crack the screen. with my 920 it is built so sturdy that i dont have to worry about that.

    get the 820.
    i'd like to take a 820 but.. low resolution+no gorilla glass+no pureview camera = fail, i'm really looking for a smaller device with 920's camera :D i think i'll wait!

    Simple Solution: Dont get it and get an 8X.
    but nokia exclusive apps are really cool.. and i love the pureview :(

    yes. We all think its too big.
    you're pretty smart eh? :) i'm asking to people who already have that phone so they could tell me a valuable opinion :)

    My wife said the 920 wasn't big enough. LOL.

    I was all set to order a 920 for her to go along with mine when someone showed her a Samsung Note. So now she has the Note 2. And there's a good reason why I let her jump ship, her eyesight is getting bad as we're getting older so she needed the largest text size available. She's quite happy with it.

    For me, no, it's not too big. I couldn't single hand type with the Focus and still can't with the 920.

    I dont think its to big, I like the larger display. I went from a tiny dumb phone so for me, initially it felt huge but after a week, I'm use to the size and it feels right.

    low resolution
    I thought that would bother me too, but the ClearBlack AMOLED display is really nice and while it's not up to "retina display" standards it's a higher resolution than the pre-retina iPhones. I have no complaints about the display on my 820. :)

    Guess I'll take the other side of the fence on this one. I have a L920 and feel its a little big for my taste. Not that I plan to get rid of it. Its a great phone. Large phones are just the way the market is headed right now. Take a look at some of the Android devices. They make the L920 look like a L800.

    I will agree with the OP. A Nokia device with the specs of the L920 and the dimensions of the L800 would be the perfect handset in my opinion.

    I don't think it is too big. I considered the 8X and while I love its ergonomics, it was too narrow for me. With the 920 I can use one hand if necessary but still not feel like my hands are tied together when texting with thumbs. The weight and extra thickness doesn't bother me--I don't use a case so it is actually smaller than my prior Samsung Focus with a case. The only downside I see is that the pointy edges aren't the best for pockets.
