So when I first got my 800, I was delighted with the size. I felt good that I hadn't given in to the "big phone" frenzy (including the 900). But... I started talking myself into things and decided I might appreciate the larger screen real-estate once the 920 was released.
I was prepared for the phone to be big and solid. Happily it wasn't THAT big and although it was weightier I liked the solid feel. I also knew that the phone would feel normal..even "just right" at some point. That point was a couple nights ago, when I was checking a message and realized just how perfect the phone feels.
I say to any potential Nokia 920 purchasers... beware. The quality build and feel of this phone is going to ruin you for any other phone.

I think it's a fine size for men. It fits into my tight jean pocket perfectly well. Some girls might not like it in their jeans, but grown up women usually carry it in a purse so a couple of ounces shouldn't be a big factor at all. My wife actually preferred the big screen of 920 over little ones.

I think its proportionally correct so it works. The 8X is too light for the size, IMHO.
I will say with the black matte finish being a little slippery, gravity does tend to help it slide out of the hand.
Oh I also find my fingertip wants to snuggle up inside the camera lens when holding it too. Wish it was mounted a tad higher.

finally got my phone in today! in all honesty... I prefer the weight of the phone! it feels like its well built, and can take a beating.
My mother, has the S3 its light but I feel like I can break it just putting it on my pocket!
this phone so far is amazing! just have to tweak around with things to get the phone to be "ME"
note to future owners.
don't mind the weight, its great =P

It's not heavy, not even close to it. There is a line where weight of smartphones needs to stop without going lighter. When a smartphone is light, it just feels like a plastic toy. I love the weight of my 920. It feels like a quality product.

Just got the phone today.
When I picked up, you can definitely notice the weight.
But honestly, its a trade off. Its a great build quality, does not feel cheap for sure.
My brother has the 4s, another brother has Galaxy Nexus and my dad has the Note.
They are all lighter than this phone.
But I wouldn't pick any of them over this phone.

Having my iPhone 4 in one hand and my Lumia 920 in the other I can barely feel any sort of difference so no, I don't even notice the weight. It's not as if the arm i'm wearing my watch on feels heavier than the one i'm not wearing a watch on.
As for the size though, I don't find it big but it is definitely bigger than my iPhone 4. I got mine yesterday so I've yet to test how it feels in my suit pocket but will do that today.

The comparative weight test with an iPhone4 (with a TPU case) makes the Lumia only slightly heavy. But after holding it up in one hand, in bed, it's substantially heavier as in I could feel the weight and could hold for less time than I can/could with iPhone.
I think it would take sometime to get used to.
But the phone itself feels sturdy and solid.

Put me down for never having issues. The only time I notice is when I have my wife's iPhone 5 in my hands. TEHN it feels like a tank. BUT, I still don't really mind. There are plenty of things I like about the weight and size, such as actually feeling the phone in my pocket (lnowing its there) as well as being able to feel a vibrate alert (again, while in my pocket) for the first time in my life while walking.

I love how the 920 feels in the hand. I had the matte black first and now the red one. I thought the shiny finish didn't look good at first, but it has grown a lot on me, and to me it definitely feels more secured in the hand.Owned Smartphones:

I like how it's a bit heavier. When I first got it I did notice the weight but now I don't even notice it. I did give it to a friend the other day and the first thing he said was 'it's quite heavy'. Picking up people's iPhones now - they feel so light and not in a good way!
