PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If there's one thing I miss in the current smartphone industry, it's design. Honest to good, real design. We basically see one boring slab after another, void of any true identity, whether it's iPhone, Samsung, or any of the others. In this boring world of grey, black, and the occasional white, Nokia is the jester, coming up with its own unique designs and crazy colour selection. Today, the company unveiled the Lumia 920 and 820 to continue this trend.

No price, no release date, 180g

180g!!!! This is insanely heavy. Who cares about build quality, phones are not supposed to last more than 2 years.
The only justification to that heavy weight would be a huge battery, like bigger than the one on Motorola MAXX phones.
What if Samsung starts selling more windows 8 phones?!!!!

Believe it or not, some people like a well-built phone. Not everyone's usage is the same - some people are hard on phones and end up killing a cheap phone after less than a year. I still have my Nokia E52 which served me very well for nearly 3 years, and it's still working perfectly, still getting a week out of the battery. That's a good thing for many people!

It is pretty heavy as phones go, but given the bigger battery than most current phones and the increased screen size over the N9 it's probably not a bad trade-off.

Plastic phones last longer than glass ones. I prefer scratches to a broken screen.
And plastic just feel worse, galaxy s phones seem like the battery cover is going to be ruined after a few days, but it's the mega tough gorilla glass on the front that can't stand hitting the concrete floor.
