    With all the people talking about the weight, I am wondering if anyone here can tell me of a household object with similar weight and size just so I can get a feel for it. Thanks!

    Tough one. A large apple would probably be close to 6 ounces/180 grams. I think 6 or 7 slices of sliced bread is 6 ounces.

    Didn't one review say 20 1 coins? If you're in the UK and you have a bunch of 1 coins lying around...

    The dummy phone in the store feels fine. I'm guess from the reviews, the actual 920 is heavier. I haven't seen one review that doesn't highlight the weight.

    I heard from some people on the forum that a refridgerator would be a good comparison.

    Maybe a washer or dryer would work too.

    I think a toyota camry may be an equivalent

    The closest thing I found in my house was a Lumia 900. That should give you a pretty good idea.

    If the weight is an issue maybe it's time to hit the gym. ;) Honestly the heavier the better. I want to know it's in my pocket. Drop a Samsung and you get to play 52 pickup. Drop a Nokia and you leave a dent in the concrete. Heavy is always better I don't care what people say. It means quality products. Light =value engineered to be the minimum to get them through the warranty period, most of the time.

    Silly people, the 920 is the weight of a Nimitz class supercarrier.

    In all seriousness though, the iphone 4 + a specs hard case is about 182 grams, if that gives you any reference. If people can carry around an iphone 4 with a case, they can carry around the L920.

    kind of puts that whole 'weight' thing into perspective huh. Wow.

    Seriously. The Lumia 920 weighs as much as a half can of coke or beer. Is it that big of deal?

    Yes... It is! When you're not a professional beer drinker, this weight can be intimidating... A strawberry daiquiri may be more suitable for you! :)

    A US penny weighs 2.5 grams. It would take 74 pennies to make 185 grams.

    If you have pennies laying around, roll up 50 in a penny paper roll. Then roll up 24 in another paper roll. Hold them in one hand.

    Remember, the weight you feel from the pennies will be concentrated on a much smaller surface area. On the 920, those 185 grams will be pretty much evenly distributed over a larger surface area. Truth is that when actual customers get a hold of the 920, they'll be scratching their head trying to figure out why some of these reviews went of over something so trivial.

    My Titan II w/case weighs over 7 oz so this will be a welcome reduction.

    Lumia 920 = a 5lb dumbbell.

    Every other smarphone in existence = A piece of paper (more sheets depending on how big the phone is. Iphone5 would be 1 sheet, Galaxy S3 would be 3 sheets, Galaxy Note would be 10 sheets.)

    No joke, you need to have bulging muscles to handle the Lumia 920, its that bad.
