    Yesterday, WMPoweruser published a post about a size comparison graphic of the upcoming WP8 phones. Unfortunately, that picture had quite a few errors there, for example portraying HTC 8S approximately 8 cm tall.

    Anyway, I made my own version of the pic that should be pretty much correct and here it is if you wish to take a look:

    Pretty much shows what I suspected. The HTC 8x has no business being that much taller than the 820 with the same screen size and definitely should not be taller than the 920.

    The 920 looks thicker than 10.7mm considering the 900 and 800 are supposedly thicker.

    Never go by screen size because if it is not too tall for your jeans pocket, the Ativ S is probably the most pocketable if it is anything like my GS3.

    How did you ensure accuracy of scale? Did you import into AUTOCAD or something?

    Just with some photoshop work. They're not accurate to the fractions of a millimeter, but should be close enough to give decent comparison.

    The HTC 8X is taller and the same thickness as the 920? Ew. The 920 is kind of hideous compared to the other phones, I think I just going to wait to see the devices in person.

    I saw the 610 for the first time yesterday and it looks a lot better than I though, is pretty heavy though.

    ^So all this time you've been going on about how amazing the 8X is and you haven't even gazed over the spec sheets?

    Such an awkward phone. 920 is the best form factor for the "hero" phones IMO. 8S takes it for the best wp8 phone though...

    Oh yeah, it's real heavy, 4.64 oz or 132 grams. Most people would have to go on a steroid regiment to carry it. :D

    I haven't being preaching the 8X. People are just incapable of looking at my post in a neutral manner, the phone I've being treating the best is the ATIV. But Nokia fans are too busy feeling threatened by HTC.

    I want the 8x specs in an 8s sizes phone. I Love the 4" Screen size but want the High end specs.

    You are too young to be spending this much time trolling on forums. You will be bitter and alone when you become an adult.

    Didn't realise the Ativ was so big, with everyone talking about how Samsung's designs are so ergonomic and pocketable. From a quick look at that picture, it looks like it's going to be harder to hit the top-left of the Ativ's screen than with the 920. I don't see why there is such a focus on thickness with little consideration of width in particular.

    The 8X looks good to me, just a little wider than my Omnia thankfully and quite a bit taller, but I'm not touching the excessive bezel at the top of the device anyway.

    It's lighter than the 4S...

    The 610? It felt ridiculously heavy in my hand. The 720 felt much lighter.

    132g (610) vs 140g (4S), it isn't that hard to Google. There's no such thing as the 720. EDIT: derp, of course you meant the 710 and you are right that it is heavier than the 710 (though still in line with the average smartphone).
