Nokia Lumia 925 is the thinnest Windows Phone 8 smartphone to date (size comparison)

After all the leaks and speculations, the Lumia 925 is now official, meaning that we finally have a high-end Windows Phone 8 smartphone from Nokia that doesn't weigh 16 tons. Okay, we know that we're exaggerating quite a bit, but no matter how we look at it, the former Nokia flagship device, namely the Lumia 920, is unusually bulky for its class. So, how much thinner and lighter is the new Nokia Lumia 925 when compared to the 920? Well, a lot, as it becomes evident when we put the two next to each other.

At 139 grams, the Nokia Lumia 925 is a whopping 46 grams lighter than the 185-gram Lumia 920. The Nokia Lumia 928, which is to launch exclusively with Verizon Wireless in the U.S. on May 16, stands in the middle between the two, tipping the scales at 162 grams. Interestingly, the Samsung ATIV S is even lighter than any of these three smartphones, weighing only 135 grams despite having a larger screen.

Thickness is another thing that Nokia has focused on. Since the Lumia 925 has no built-in wireless charging, it comes as no surprise that it's thinner than its siblings. In fact, with a thickness of only 8.5 millimeters, it ranks among the slimmest Windows Phone smartphones to date, and it's actually the thinnest WP8 handset announced so far. To get a better idea about the size and proportions of the Nokia Lumia 925, take a look at it below next to the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 928, and the Samsung ATIV S.
