    If we compare the size of Lumia 920, isn't the screen size bit small compared to the total area. Some amount of space is wasted. What is your openion on Lumia 920's screen size?

    Wastage of space :D What you think will happen if those buttons are lower? You press them all the time like in 900.

    Its not a waste of space, its the thing that lets me hold the phone without pressing things constantly. Personally I think its totally fine. Id rather not snap and murder my village in rage.

    I don't think I've ever touched that area, I don't hold it from there at all. I actually press the search key by accident a lot while dragging up the charms at the bottom of the screen. I would have preferred if the screen were larger or atleast those buttons moved a little bit lower down. Luckily Nokia made the top bezel very small so the screen isn't so bad for its size.

    Ah, I hold that side a lot in landscape or with the pads on my thumb/palm when typing. I always touch that bit with the thumb/palm pad of my hand when I hold it onehanded, tbh.

    I bet that their engineers had a lot of room to cram all of the hardware in there, but left that space to create topics for us to post about.

    I got mine 2 days ago and it does feel like they could have either made the screen a little bigger or the phone smaller in dimensions. Add the fact that the space on the bottom means you don't have a perfectly centered keyboard in landscape and it's kinda annoying, I didn't like this about my 800 but at least with the 920 the screen is so big portrait typing is super easy.

    I think a slightly larger screen, such as 4.65 may have worked out a bit better than 4.5. It's easy to see how some may find it off-putting that the Lumia 920 is a bit bigger than the GSIII, but has a smaller screen. On the other hand, I think it's nice to have some sort of bezel and not have an edge-to-edge device.

    Its same in Lumia 800. If those buttons are like in 900 there would be a lot of topics about this.

    It's not a waste of space at all. Without that space, you'd be constantly hitting buttons by accident. I don't know about you, but I'd rather not accidentally hit the damn Bing button more than I already do. LOL

    I would have liked a bit bigger screen just for viewing videos, but that's what my desktop is for. I was watching a TV show on my phone before class last night, and going from a 3.8" Droid Incredible to this was amazing, though not the best.

    The Lumia FX800 will have the same size as Lumia 900 (127mm) but will have 4.65 inch screen

    Titanium Lumia FX800 design concept screams 'Nokia, take note!'

    Lumia FX800 is a fan made concept device, it is not going to have screen of any size at all.

    Any comparison to that design is pointless as it does not have to deal with the burden of various engineering compromises affecting the final design.

    I'm coming from a Blackberry keyboard device. At first I thought that the 4.5" screen would be too big for my hands, and at first it was. But after having the phone for three weeks now, I'm loving it. The screen size is perfect for viewing and typing on. I feel that the 4.3" screen might have been too "thin" and much harder to type on.

    About the space at the bottom, I think they had that so that you could easily hold it with one hand and press the capacitive buttons with your thumb without having to reach too far down. Try to visualize it in your head, if that space was not there and the buttons were much closer to the bottom edge of the phone, your fingers would have to reach a lot more further.

    As others have said, I'm very happy. I haven't pushed the buttons by mistake once yet, which continued to happen on the 900 throughout my ownership.

    It's what I've come to love about Nokia. Camera bezel scratch easy? Fixed. Buttons too close to the bezel? Fixed. Music controls not working with screen off? Fixed. On and on and on. No device is perfect, but they really seem to learn from their previous efforts. I was very happy with my 900, but I'm twice as happy with my 920.

    ANOTHER complaint thread!

    Warning : Do not play a drinking game where you take a shot every time someone uselessly whines about the 920. It might kill you.

    Its not a complain, its an openion, when modern smartphones have 80% surface area covered with screen, that space came has a surprise to me

    ^^ THIS! I accidentally pressed the buttons on my 900 because they were too close to the bottom of the device.

    If you think it's wasted space go and play with a 900 for a week, you'll be glad Nokia moved the buttons up.

    A co-worker of mine complained that they are too close to the screen, and he accidentally presses them when he is trying to click something on the screen.. on the 920 that is.

    I'm constantly pressing the search button while scrolling or trying to select something on a web page. Seems if you hold the phone by its sides, which makes sense since it allows unobstructed view of the screen, you wouldn't accidentally touch the buttons. I personally wouldn't mind a smaller sized phone with the same screen size; this thing is very visible in dress pants and normal fitting jeans. Guess they can't design it to suit everyone's preferences.
