    The black was leaked in those high quality photos already. And while the white does look good the black to me looks way better.

    White one is matte just like the black. Also the white one is going to be limited.
    I agree. Hey Falorin, was the white matte or glossy?

    Not sure if I'll wait for the 8.1 devices or grab this one. If the battery is a big jump over the 928 that I have now I will definitely get it if there's nothin else on the horizon

    BTW all the pics are down again

    I really hope that is a silver edging. Would love to own this phone before Christmas! I'm just happy at this point that it still exists and we're still getting leaks, even though they're small and far and few in between. Been waiting for this phone!

    How thick is the 929? There have been a lot of conflicting reports. I really would like to know.

    EDIT: Also, is that silver band metal or plastic? If it's metal that would be amazing, but I don't want to get my hopes up haha.

    I would love it to be! :). But I am also concerned with the thickness. I don't want a bulky device. I don't expect anything amazing out of the battery life either. I expect it to be good, but nothing to write home about that. I could deal with it though. I just don't want to keep waiting. I didn't think I would end up considering the BlackBerry Z30 for my next phone, but here I am. It should be a shootout between the Lumia 929 and the BlackBerry Z30 ;)

    Based on what we know, it shouldn't be too thick... so I highly doubt it will be bulky

    Nokia phones are usually thicker and heavier than most, so if it's thick, I wouldn't be surprised. But I'd settle for thickness on this phone. If it's around the 928's thickness, that would be OK for me. After holding the 928 often, it certainly doesn't feel as thick as it is due to the tapering. So we'll see what happens with the 929. Hard to tell without anything to scale next to it. But thick phones are common for Nokia. It should be no surprise to anyone here. I'm still hopeful it will be a wonderful phone.


    EDIT: The more I look at the most recent photo, the more I think it's not as thick as I thought. But again, without something to compare it with, it's hard to tell. But it doesn't look bad at all at this point (to me).

    I think it's thicker to remove the hump found in the 1520, which wasn't that obvious in the first place.

    The specs I thought said it's 10 something mm thick. Which is gonna put it around the 928. Thought this has been pretty well confirmed for a while.

    I've seen that a lot as well. I'd be fine with 928 width. Would I like thinner like many other 5" phones? Of course. But Nokia phones are always bulkier. So I wouldn't be let down. It would just be a really nice surprise to see it thinner. But definitely not something I'm going to count on.

    If those dimensions and weights are correct, the 929 is just a tiny bit bigger on the outside, while having a bigger screen and CPU on the inside. It's the TARDIS of Lumia phones!

    Does anyone have a list of comparable phones and battery sizes? I was personally not expecting much. 2510 mAh isn't that bad. Isn't the Galaxy S4 2600 mAh? So that's close. Not bad. And the HTC One is like 2300 mAh. I think the Nexus 5 is about the same. And forget about the iPhone 5S. Isn't that like 1500 mAh? Or around there? So this blows that away.

    But I guess on the pessimistic side of things, the LG G2 has 3000 mAh, and the phones I mentioned above with smaller batteries are 6+ months older.

    But I suppose the battery size doesn't matter until we see how well it works with the rest of the internals. Can't judge it on the spec alone.
    While you can compare numbers between devices, they are just that, numbers. WP has never needed the processor speed, cores, RAM or bigger batteries to out perform other platforms.

    As with anything related to the combination of VZW & WP, I'll believe it when I see it in my own hand.
