    Or if you want a stylish phone, buy the 8x. If you don't wear a pocket protector, buy the 8x. If you have a wife/girlfriend, or both buy an 8x.

    Hey! My phone can beat up your phone!

    Well according to the reviewer. The 920 is thick, bulky,heavy and ugly, the note isn't. I can't do anything about it, is his opinion.
    Yes, this is what I said. You accepted that it's his "opinion".

    So basically, the review is his opinion only.

    And boy, he never said it's ugly.
    I think that's your desire to add some spice to it. Isn't it? :P

    LMAO... What a pitiful review. Knocking a few points down because of the weight? Right...
    Obviously you don't realize how paralyzingly heavy the 920 is... with you being metal and all...

    If it's "heavy" like the 900 is heavy, then i would say solid or sturdy.

    all these lightweight phones are flimsy and break the first time you drop them, or accidentally sit on them.

    i dunno what all the hate is about especially from HTC owners, i've owned HTC and overall build is OK the recepton is awful on them i mean awful i've owned several, ive also owned several nokia and you cannot beat the build quality, like i say the 900 and 800 had the worst out of nokia as far as build quality and they were still better than 90% of whats out there, HTC is not bad phone by any means, and i do like the look of the 8X, but if that thing has reception like the last 3 i had screw it, not only that you have wireless charging and a 32g with nokia and its only what 50 bucks more or same price? All this hate is ridiculous we are talknig about a phone that is top notch in technology for cheaper than most other phones in its category and with a better camere and it weighs a few grams more some of the blackberry were REALLY heavy nobody complained about those and ya maybe tis heavy for todays phones but with all its got in it, its definitely not heavy, why do you think nobody else is putting wireless charging in becase they cant probably even get it to 185g it would prolly be over 200, and i see all these android people running around with extended batteries their phones are HUGE. This has no merit in taking off a full point in a review, was an awful review and yes you should lose some for heaviness but the fact they could fit all that in there with the OIS and only be 185 and as thin as it is, i also thought i read someone the 900 was thicker than the 920 also. Which would make the 900 bulky but nobody complained about that did they.

    That's the only way to go. I don't care who's giving the review, on a purchase as big as a phone I'm getting my hands on before I buy. So many different standards and tastes out there.

    I've been using an EVO4G, which weighs 180 grams, for 2+ years, and the weight was a feature when that phone came out.

    After reading the Lumia 920 is so heavy on lots of sites, I WILL have to go to a store and try it (even if I'm not planning to get a new phone now). In the past, I had a tendency to pick heavier phones with some heft, they just feel more comfortable in my hand. Yes, I'm female and supposed to prefer small, light, dainty things, but I guess liking heavier stuff comes with being a tall strong woman. :P Even in the past, wenn the trend in mobile phones was to make them as small as possible, I never followed this trend.

    An example why I like my phones bigger: My last phone was a HTC Wildfire. Small, light. My present phone is a Lumia 800: Bigger and heavier (but not really big, I know). I've dropped my HTC uncountable times - no heft, slippery, just too small and light for my hands. I've dropped my Lumia only once.
    I've held a Samsung Galaxy S3 recently ... the size, combined with its thinness, felt a bit uncomfortable in my hand.

    Imagine what would happen if you dropped a L920 on an 8X.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I find my Droid RAZR too thin & too light, so I'm looking forward to some heft. Not everybody is in the author's camp and a fan of featherweight gadgets.

    Unfortunately I still need to figure out if this is worth bailing on VZW for or whether I wait to see what comes in 90ish days...

    There's no doubt that 185g is heavy for a phone and the 920 is on the large side. It's just a matter of whether or not that is a barrier to you that outweighs (pun intended) the advantages the 920 offers.

    I'm not entirely decided yet, but given my experience with Nokia, my next phone is very likely to be a Nokia device. I'm not thrilled that they chose to make the 920 a bit bigger and heavier than the 900, but I suspect in the end the pros will outweigh the cons for me. I don't really see myself buying the imitation Lumia when I can have a real one.

    I needed a laugh. :lol:

    I totally understand if some people don't like the weight. But dang, they went overboard. Subtracting a whole point?

    I don't know if they realize that most toddlers are able to handle this with no problem.

    I had to actually check how much that thing weights and it was 249g and it's for 6+ months :lol:

    Saying the phone isn't "heavy" and you need to get fit is a dumb retard response. It's relative. No one would go out and buy some shoes that were 3lbs, because they would be too "heavy". No, it's not 1000000 tons, but for shoes, they would be too "heavy". A person that didn't want the 3lbs shoes doesn't need to "get fit", they just know that for this day and age, it's too "heavy". So yeah, if someone thinks that 185g is heavy for phone, suggesting they need to work out is idiotic.

    On a different note. How long did he use the phone. I thought my NL900 was too heavy at first, then after about a week of usage, I found that it wasn't too heavy, just that my older phone was too light.

    i like that shouldn't have to need the added weight of a case for daily use. the weight of a case is basically the difference between it and your average smartphone

    Well, a day, two days, a week, a hour? He had been using a iphone or a gs3, then of course it would seem heavy. I'm just wondering if he used it long enough to get use to the extra heft.

    Honestly, this is a good review for my purposes. I'll use my own judgement on style and size. Tech-wise, sounds like the phone is great. To those who think it's too big, who cares? It'll be my phone, not yours (oh god, that last bit is almost a microsoft commercial)

    btw-if you want some perspective, the reviewer stated (in the comments section) that he wouldn't read a book on an ipad3 because it's too heavy. Obviously, this guy is weight and size conscious when it comes to hardware.

    Well, check out their Galaxy Note 2 review,which weighs same as Lumia 920 and has higher dimensions than lumia 920. They never mentioned it's bulky,large, big or heavy in the negatives. Actually they said "Big Love" in the Heading and further said "Not too big" in the second paragraph heading. And given 4.5 score for that.

    But for Lumia 920, they praised everything. Only negative they said was "Bulky in multiple words" and given 3 stars. Which is ridiculous.

    Their galaxy Note 2 review: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 review - Pocket-lint

    Comparison between Lumia 920 and Note 2 specs: Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 vs. Nokia Lumia 920 - GSMArena.com

    Now, can you see what they did there? ;)
    Wow wat a find.. So this makes them lose all credibility.. May be they will use the note as a pillow so the weight is ok.

    Winterfang is not the same winterfang from y'day... May be he posted this interview since they recommend HTC. Was it the same person who said that Lumia 920 is butchered?

    I think they love Samsung. and they think better HTC than NOKIA as NOKIA is the challenger to thier sammy.
