    Don't sit down with it in your pocket! Who does that anyway? Everyone places their phones on the table... its the modern form of peeing to claim your territory.

    Never having owned a smartphone before my L920, I thought it was too big at first too. 3 Weeks later, it feels like the perfect sized device. The 8X is narrower, but a bit taller and the Galaxy SIII is about the same width, but slightly taller. I think the higher end phones are all pretty comparable size wise!

    @Davidkoh - it's way bigger than an iPhone 4! Not that this is a problem - i just typed this one-handed with no trouble and i don't have big hands.
    Yeah it is bigger but theres no difference holding it. Only time I notice it is when I see the big display.

    L920s size is just perfect for me. It is not a Fisher-Price Phone.

    I agree that the size of the 920 is quite bit at first. Going from an iPhone 3GS to the 920 is quite a leap. It can be a bit difficult to navigate around with one hand but after using for a few days im used to it and I am loving the big screen.

    I asked my 6 year old daughter if it is too big or heavy for her. She said no, then went back to killing the battery by playing Angry Birds. (And no, she does not lift.) As for my pockets, I usually wear slacks or cargo pants. The front pockets are big enough to hold a Note. Wallet and keys on the left side, phone on the right. Everything comfortable.

    The 920s camera hardware is big, hence the phone size.

    The depth of a smaller phone would always be the same, so you shrink the height/width, and it'd look like even more of a brick.

    Well, apparently she's lifting now.

    When I first got the Lumia 900 to try out, after coming from a 3GS, my hands actually hurt from using it. After a few days it was fine though and ended up returning the 900 for other reasons. Then I got the iPhone 5 when it came out with the intent to get the 920. After coming from the iPhone 5, I was expecting a similar experience with my hands hurting and it being too heavy/big, but I didn't notice any of that at all. I think the way the weight is distributed definitely helps.

    I don't always leave the house without pants, but when I do, the phone seems really small.

    Kind of grew accustomed this as i get around 2-3 smartphones every year and on the pictures and videos the phone always look big, especially if the reviews and whatnot say it's huge.
    In the end when you actually get the phone it's no problem. Experienced this too many times as the width of the phones has been growing every year.

    Weight i knew from the start to be non issue as i actually appreciate heavy phones (i mean i did own Nokia E90 and luxury Nokia 8xxx series models back in the day) and in the end have had no issue with the size either. Naturally this is different for everybody, something that a 4 seconds hands on time with the device should clear up.

    I came from a 3,5" phone (N8) to using an Omnia 7 (4") a few months before I got the Lumia 920 (4,5") and tbh I don't really even feel the phone grew up in size. Only when I pick up my N8 now I'm like holy **** this is small :D

    Not too big for one handed use for me either, fairly regular hands, 23 year old male. The weight is perfect for a device of this size, I personally don't want those 130g devices that are like 4,8" screen, feel like toys to me.

    I feel like the 8X is the best designed phone so far. It would be amazing if Nokia and HTC would fuse...

    On Topic: I also think 920 looks too massive for me, thus I got the 8X, that despite that it is large it feel "small" & soft & slim. It's got an amazing/outstanding design. My friends reactions were all the same when they first saw "Omg so beautiful yet so thin"

    Coming from a Focus, I was really concerned about the size, but really liked everything else about the 920. My wife has had a 900 since they came out and I always preferred my Focus to hers. Although, I never really considered the fact that she uses a case which makes it more bulkier than it really is. I figured I try the 920 for the 14 days and if I couldn't get over the size, I'd return it. After a few days I never really thought about the size as a negative. In fact, using my old Focus seemed oddly small.

    I suggest others do something similar if they aren't sure of the size...just use it for a few days and be sure you have the option to return it. Friends and co-workers see my phone and comment on how huge it is, but when they pick it up, they immediately make positive comments about other aspects of the device.

    While it was easier to use my Focus as a one-handed phone, I often used it two-handed anyway. For basic operation the 920 works with one hand for me and I have average mitts - but the 920 is more suited for two-hand operation.

    After hearing all these stories about the Lumia 920 being so big and heavy,I was surprised how light it felt when today, I finally was able to try it out. In fact, it felt so good in my hand that I wanted to take it home (I remember having the same feeling after trying out the Lumia 800). I have tried the Lumia 900 as well, it didn't feel as comfortable as the 920. Now my Lumia 800 feels a tad to small. One-handed use worked for typing a short test-message, but I have large, long-fingered hands for a woman. Also, I never ever put my phones in my trouser pockets fearing I might sit on them or them slipping out of the pockets. Furthermore, most my trousers don't have pockets, the only pocket where I would put my phone is is the jacket pocket, but normally, my phone is in my handbag.

    My opinion is that the Lumia 920 (and actually the 8X as well) are too big relative to the size of the display. The current crop of Windows Phones make rather inefficient use of their dimensions. My Titan I is roughly the same size as both of these devices or smaller and has a 4.7" display! The 8X and Lumia are ridiculously bulky relative to other high end offerings on the market as well as the last gen of WPs.

    Hopefully, the Ativ S or the high end HTC offering comes out soon.

    Check out the 820. It's not like that at all.

    Coming from the HTC One X I find the Lumia 920 pretty much the same in terms of size and usability. It definitely carries more weight than the One X, but I find in day to day use its similar, in fact the Lumia is a little easier to use one-handed for me. It took a while for me to get used to the One X as I came from a 3in screen phone, but now I'm rocking the bigger screen phones and wouldn't have it any other way.

    I think the size and shape of a phone is a very subjective topic what may be just right for my use could be too large for yours. That said I do not find the 920 large at all but just right. I do find the Note series too large

    When the iPhone 5 came out and didn't add any width to the phone is when I decided to jump ship. I thought about the Galaxy S3 for a bit but the smugness of android users just kind of drive me nuts for some reason. Then along came the 920 with WP8 :).
