    Definitely getting the white. I love that silver band of metal around the edge.

    I really don't think that's a silver metal edge... I think it's just matte white and appears to be metal because of the render.

    It says on the specs it's metal, people who have dealt with the device say it's metal, and other pictures you can clearly see that it's metal - including the two stripes you see on the 925. It's metal edge.

    Nokia Lumia ICON dimensions:

    Size (hand measured)
    Height: 136.5 mm
    Width: 71.4 mm
    Thickness: 10.5 mm
    Weight: 166 g

    the 928 is 10.1 mm in thickness. Compared to the 928, the ICON is .4 mm thicker, and 4 g heavier... .4 mm is practically nothing.

    For all the juicy specs in there including a 20mp shooter at that height and width, its really not that bad.
    I just went from an 8X to the 928. The 928 is a tank compared to the 8X, in thickness and weight. To think the 929 is even more so.......

    I really like the metal trim but then realize I'm just going to put the phone in a case anyway so it doesn't make a difference.

    If the 928 is 10.1 mm, it's thinner than the 8x which is 10.12 mm. I think the 8x just seems thinner because its tapered.

    It's .4mm. If you can find a way to measure it, you'll get a better perspective of just how miniscule that really is. I think it's actually really impressive what they have managed to fit in a device of this size.

    So, looks like no announcement today, which I think we expected given how incomplete the test page was. Meaning at least 2 weeks until launch.

    But I'm expecting it in 2 weeks, given how far along the test page was, haha.

    I once owned a 0.4mm thick tempered glass screen protector and that thickness is definitely noticeable. I was hoping for something thinner than the 928 but with wireless charging and a 20MP sensor, there's no way that was going to happen.

    So what is this phone missing that we wish it had? MicroSD, Xenon Flash? Anything else?

    Seems like there is never a phone that has it all but this one gets really close! I have a 8X on VZW and will be working hard to find a way to get this one!

    A .4mm screen protector? Yeah, that's noticeable.. On a slab phone? It's nothing. Won't even be noticeable. We'll all love it :p. The alternative is removing wireless charging, potentially decreasing battery size, and having a silly looking hump like the 1520.

    The weight is really disappointing. Nokia just can't seem to make their big smartphones lighter. I was really hoping to get this but this 166g compares with 130 on my Nexus 5. I used an HTC 8x for most of a year and loved it, but wanted a bigger screen due to aging eyes specifically for the browser. Everything out by Nokia that had a bigger screen is just too heavy. Don't start with the need to go work out at the gym comments- I just don't like the way a 160 g phone feels. Also, a while back I tried the Nokia 925, which is 139 grams and nice, but it is getting dating tech wise, so I guess I will have to pass on the 929 and wait for a model that replaces the 925.

    Also, MS could solve a lot of the screen issue just by including text reflow or a built in reader in the browser that allows text to be scaled up. On IOS mobile Safari, Mercury Browser and others have it, and in Android, multiple browsers have it. There are several windows phone browsers that include scaling up of text, but they work very poorly IMO.

    We don't know how it's going to perform. I'll wait to condemn the 2420-2510 mAh until I atleast try it.

    The ATIV S has 2300, and it does quite well. I think the battery life will be fine on the 929.

    Nokia's tend to weight a little more than competing phones because they aren't built like toys. They are extremely solid, rigid, and typically built like tanks. Of course, glass is glass, and it's impossible to prevent shattering or cracking a screen with a drop at the right point and with the right amount of force. But, otherwise, Lumia's can take one heck of a beating and not skip a beat.

    Oh, and that extra 36 grams is 14.4 US pennies, or about 79/100ths of a pound (0.0794lbs.). Or, to put it another way, 929=0.366lbs, Nexus 5=0.287lbs., less than 1/10th of a pound. Noticeable? Yes. An inconvenient amount of extra weight? Not really...but personal preference is where this kicks in.

    Keep in mind that a 1080p screen will consume more battery.

    Qualcomm did implement battery savings into the 800 but in regards to the device he brought up (Ativ S), I doubt it will have similar battery consumption given the power required to drive the high pixel density.

    For example, look at the LG G2 with a 3000mAh battery. LG more than likely increased it from the Optimus G's 2100mAh battery to compensate for the increased battery consumption a 1080p screen brings.
