    Gizmodo's review of the 920 is up, for whatever it worth. See http://m.gizmodo.com/5957795/lumia-920-review-just-too-damn-heavy

    Guess what their biggest complaint is? Inexcusably heavy. Such bs... Other than that they praise the design, battery, soft wear, and camera.

    My Dell Venue Pro weighs 191 Grams. It's a bearable weight.

    I can't believe they actually put "Just Too Damn Heavy" in the title of the article. Wow...

    Much nicer review than I thought Gizmodo was capable of, so they get props for that......then I saw what they said the "Tragic Flaw" was, and was reminded why I never trust them for reviews.
    Nokia Lumia 1520 RM-937 w/ 64GB MicroSD card
    Microsoft Surface 2 32GB w/ Type Cover 2

    I really wish people would stop linking to gawker sites. They are horrible and need to go away.

    Should You Buy It?
    It kills me to say this, because I wanted to own this instead of an iPhone 5, but no. No you shouldn't. It's too big and heavy. It's not fun to own. It's not enjoyable to use. If you want a Windows Phone, check out the very good HTC 8X. But this? No, not this.
    Lol, what kind of conclusion is that?

    They fail to answer Why it's no fun to own.

    They fail to answer Why it's not enjoyable to use.

    They fail to answer Why it's too big and too heavy.

    Reading the part about the weight just made me shake my head in disgust at that review, and the fact that tripe like that even gets published

    Here are some gems of hyperbole:



    It's just too heavy.

    The Lumia 920 weighs almost half a pound.

    It's just too heavy. Inexcusably heavy. Way, way too heavy to recommend to anyone.

    It's just as galling every time you take it out of your pocket—stretched within a micron of its life

    Our gadgets should be comfortable. They should be made for our hands and fingers. The 920 was perhaps made for hands and fingers, but not of any mortal. Not any of us.


    wtf did I just read? Is this guy really a squirrel with tiny hands. My grandmother is stronger than him if that's the way he feels about 180 grams.

    I find myself reading Gizmodo less and less. Their articles are just getting too damn lightweight. This 920 review confirms it...

    What kind of crap review is that? No, not because they over exaggerated the weight, but because I didn't see anything on the display, NFC and wireless charging capabilities etc... things that explain why the phone weighs what it does.

    It was a short review that focused too much on the weight. I think it is a testament to how great the 920 is when all people can think about as a negative is it's weight.

    They are just making an excuse to do not say that it's better than the iPhone.

    Honestly, for $600 I don't want to hold something that feels as if it will crush like an empty box...

    Guys, it's Sam Biddle. He must have spaghetti arms if he thinks 185 g is too heavy. There's really no other explanation. It's the same weight as a Lumia 900 plus 3 quarters. I just tried that (and I already have a case on my 900)...definitely too heavy for mortals. Sheesh. What a joke.

    I don't understand the weight issue... All of my friends have iPhones or giant Android devices in Otterbox cases, adding at least another ounce to the phone. None of them ever complain about it being too big.

    Too heavy, ha. I used to carry around a 5 pound Motorola Bag phone. You could use it as a weapon.

    Thanks gizmodo! Now my chances of getting a cyan 920 on Friday is increased since less people are interested.

    Many of these reviewers are spoiled by Apple's obsession with light feather weighted phones. That or they need to start pumping some iron.

    I personally like phones that feel sturdy and substantial.

    Or maybe they are now even more curious about a device that has been slammed oh so many times because it *weighs too much*.

    At least with the Lumia 920 I won't have to worry about my precious phone shattering into a million pieces if I drop it.

    If weight is the worst thing he can find about the phone, it must be a pretty damn great device.

    I don't think Gizmodo is still as credible as it once was, maybe like 2 to 3 years ago.

    lol someone beat me from linking this article. What I loved the most were the comments on that article. Everyone calling him a pansy was the best.
