    You sound insecure.

    If you really were okay with other people liking it, then you wouldn't make insulting comments about people that would use it. No need to label people as clowns.

    Looking at what people wrote, you seriously over reacted. People said the phone wasn't for you and you responded like they insulted you. Strange behavior.

    I think it will fit in loose pockets. A "man purse" or other accessory may be necessary if the pants being don't fit it. But people who choose to do that probably are secure enough about themselves to not worry about it.
    Actually, the person sounded sarcastic in the original comment, not insecure. People around here should never visit New York City or Philadelphia ((or most of the northeast and Mid-Atlantic region if they can't handle a little sarcasm. Those coming off as insecure are the ones who seem upset with someone joking that it looks like a clown phone. Personally I agree that all of these oversized phones look ridiculous. I am not going to pick on those who want one (to reach their own) but if you can't handle a bit of sarcasm and the occasional joke directed at your choice of a very visible and oversized fashion accessory, you really might want to buy something less conspicuous. People make jokes about Galaxy Note owners, and it was even one of the memorable lines/images in a rather popular Windows Phone commercial a few months back. Why would you expect that an oversized Windows Phone would be immune from such comments? If any people need to deal with insecurity, it is those who can't take a bit of harmless sarcasm.

    While sexy is in the eyes of the beholder, I find it disturbing when people, who are almost always male, anthropomorphize and fetishize inanimate objects. As an anthropologist though, I do find it interesting that, in the Western world, the objects of desire identified as sexy are perceived as being large or powerful.
    Dude, there are TONS of things perceived as sexy in the Estern world that I find very very very disturbing (if not sick)
    And even more interesting to study for anthropological reasons than the "bigger is better" factor ...

    Btw I think what you misunderstood the reason the world "sexy" was used. I think these photos were perceived as sexy not because the size of the device, but because it's thin, for its specs and for its shape. In this case, I think "sexy" was used with the meaning of "cool" or "good". So the anthropologically speaking I think it's not related to the "bigger is better" factor. A 4.5" device would be perceived as sexy in the Western too, with the same shape and specs.

    I totally do not agree with you, this is the perfect way for troll shielding :)

    Chillax dudes.

    Big people big hands big pockets big phone big differences for everyone.

    And for the record he likened the phone to something a clown might have ie; outlandishly big to suit his nose, hair, shoes and pockets - not that clowns would buy it.
    It's well known that clowns only buy phones that have Rednose instead of Bluetooth.

    And if you look closely there's those misterious 5 pins on the back, along with the ZEISS branding instead of Carl Zeiss, just like the 1020.
    What do you think of this?

    Now, I'm not normally one who likes phablets, but I think this device is so good looking, it might just convert me.

    I honestly believe that, if Microsoft can continue to support the device with future updates, AND it has wireless charging out of the box, this could be one of the best phones ever made.

    I have a right to say it's crap as much as you want to make love to it,
    you post here at your own risk, this ISN'T a mutual admiration society if you
    want that kind of approval call your mum. The phone is huge it's not practical if
    you want to carry a purse for you phone, that's cool, if you think it's the perfect size good for you
    you have a right to your opinion. Starting a thread doesn't make you king of the thread, a forum is
    about putting forth ideas and OPINIONS.
    It's a HUGE phone that a clown would use as a prop as you can see...

    Look, this phone is too big for me as well. What's the point of criticizing a device that wasn't made for you? Isn't it easier to just start looking for other devices instead of losing time with something that wasn't meant for you. It's what I do. I'm looking for a 5" LUMIA with WP8.1, so I am aware that I'm probably not the best person to judge this device. Guess some people just have to loudly express their opinion about every subject...

    Ugh, quality of posts on WPC is going downhill as WP catches on.

    Anyways, I am still hoping my next Lumia phone will have built-in wireless charging and no camera hump. I want and updated 920 essentially.

    I don't think they're mysterious holes. They look pretty similar to the holes we see on the 928, 925 and 1020 for wireless charging plates to 'plug in' to.
    Those holes appear too small to be for a wireless charging plate. The 928s wireless charging is built-in so there are no holes on the back other than speaker and the mic. The 925 and 1020 do have the small metal plates on the back that is for the wireless charging plate to make contact with. Unless they changed the connection my guess speakers.

    Maybe technically, but realistically, "sex" is the root of the word. Enough said!
    My Hoosier brutha, he's right. Inanimate objects can be sexy - the inflatable kind.

    UUUmmm...yah!

    I like the big screen devices its a weakness. The WP I had the longest was the Titan II mostly because of the screen size. I am trying to get some time alone with one, I have a friend of a friend that has had one in his hands.

    I am not a big hold it to your ear phone guy I do all my talking on a Bluetooth so as long as I can find a pouch I can hang on my pocket I'm good to go.

    I'm really excited to see this device in person. Part of me thinks that it might be a little too large to carry around, but I have this feeling that once I see that 6" screen, I'll be totally sold on it. The 4.8" screen of the ATIV S screen compared to the 920 has me firmly convinced that 4.5" is too small. I expect that for my liking, 5" is the best, maybe 5.5" could be the best balance between device size and screen beauty, but the 1520 might just convince me that 6" is the way to go.

    As great and problem free as the ATIV is, I'm dying to switch to a next gen Nokia device in order to make use of ProCam.

    Lol. Let me guess, you're one of those people that thinks a car can't be sexy. So a Ferrari GTO, Shelby Cobra, McClaren F1, or any other isn't sexy? Riiight.

    Sexy can also describe inanimate objects...
