    This may sound silly, but if you do have an ICON & a 928, could you take a picture of them atop or side by side each other.. I want to see the difference in thickness.. The 930/ICON is supposed to be .3mm thinner, but it doesn't look like it at all from pictures.. I always though the 930/ICON was thicker than the 928 and about the same thickness as the 920

    I think some sites have phone size comparison tools that you may also like.

    I dont have a 3rd device to take a picture with but the 928 is def thicker at the outer most point. It's almost hard to see visually but you can def feel the difference. The main reason for this is the aluminum bezel that is on the Icon. The 928's bezel kinda wraps around the sides to the glass and bows out a little bit more in the center of the back. If you lay them both screen down on a flat surface you can see the 928 is just a tad thicker.

    Yeah, to me it isn't noticeable. The height is very small difference.

    You do realize that the difference in thickness is 300 micrometers or .012 inches or 3/250 inches right? That is too small for the human eye to determine. You need a micrometer to accurately measure the difference.

    but the icon is definitely wider ... at least the on-screen keyboard is wider enough that I have trouble reaching across whereas the 928 was just the right size

    That's because the Icon has a 5" screen versus the 928's 4.5" screen.

    The Icon is also 4 grams heavier.
