__________Cubic MM____screen____thickness mm
Note actually seems a bit oversized to me. Ativ and S3 have a 4.8" screen and Note has a 5.3 yet note is much larger volume wise than the S3.

That said, I prefer the solid, high quality feel of the polycarbonate unibody to the cheap and chintzy feel of the plasticky Samsung like phones.
A perfect compromise for me would have been a slightly smaller than 900 phone with the screen pushed closer to the edges, maybe a little bit lighter, with higher resolution, and the same quality, solid feel.
I guess that was too much to ask though.
For now I'll be holding on to my L900, which I love, and we'll have to see. It's hard to imagine going to an even bigger phone. I love Nokia and I want my next phone to be a Lumia of some kind, but I'm not OK with 800x480 and I'm not OK with phones getting bigger and bigger with every iteration.

I'm not much of an HTC fan I didn't have luck with this HD7 but the 8x is sharp looking as it the L920. I just think that the Nokia and HTC devices bring something new to the table that we have really not seen in the smartphone world and best of all they are sporting WP8 enjoy this while it last because soon HTC and all the other android makers are going to have this style devices running android.

I actually like both handsets but the 920 is a better phone. I have never had an iphone but my friends and family have and all those tiny icons give me a headache, but as you say the hardware has always been top quality thanks to Steve Jobs....until now because the latest effort is poor. I looked at the new software too and yes, there is no real improvement apart from the intergrated facebook which they have copied from WP7.
So now that Windows phone has proper hardware and a totally original, simple, easy to use OS, (which I've got to say Im still happy with 7.5) I can understand why people like yourself are wanting to switch. Seeing all those iphone fans queing up outside the stores are just zombified and in a routine so they can say.."I waited for 9 hours to get my iphone!!!"...so what, this time around it is not the phone everyone will want in their hand!
I'll be getting either the white or red 920, what do you think is the best colour?

As I'm reading all of the comments about the Lumia 920 with adjectives and terms such as "Man hands", "Power", etc..... I cannot help but think of the people who buy exotic cars. They are often compensating for other "Man" related size issues. ;)
That said, the idea that the Lumia 920 is too heavy, or too large seems ridiculous to me. I have an HD7 now and the difference in weight between both is minimal. I don't recall any moments where I was holding that phone next to my ear and thinking that it was too heavy. Seems like a big deal over nothing.
As for the 8X looking "tacky" as compared to the 920, I certainly don't agree. The 920 strikes me as a better phone when it comes to the features and I would probably pick it over the 8X as my next phone were it available on Tmo, and even though I would probably select the Nokia over the HTC as my next phone, I think the 8X actually looks a bit better, primarily due to the gloss coloring on the 920, which I am not too fond of.

In my opinion, the HTC 8X/8S looks way better than ALL the NOKIA LUMIAS. The HTC devices feel very slim but the NOKIA'S seem sort of bulky. The nokia devices are shaped weirdly and just don't look right. The HTC's are also smooth and soft while the NOKIA'S can get fingerprints and much more. The 8X/8S is way better.
