    I'm going to say no, it's not too heavy.
    My Passport is the heaviest device I've owned by far, but I don't find it uncomfortable to hold.

    Batteries are dense and heavy. If you want a good battery it's going to weigh more. I'd rather that than have the phone weigh 30g less.

    If it's balanced well, I don't think a few grams are going to make much difference to a buyer.

    Since when is a light and thin Patek less of a status symbol than a car door on your wrist? I miss elegance.

    That is a seriously weighty phone. I had to abandon my Classic because of it's 177g heft - I just found it too heavy to use and type on comfortably.

    I shouldn't judge until I've held one I suppose as weight and balance are two different things, but initial thoughts are that this is a deal-breaker for me.

    Will anything replace my fantastic 9900?!!
    You should check out the Nexus 5X, it's only 136 grams. Sounds crazy light to me.

    "192g - Too heavy?"

    To each their own, but a 192g smartphone is fine for me. In fact, I kind of like having a little heft to my devices.

    I'm just suggesting that you bulk up so that the added weight doesn't bother you.
    I'm sure you're a real Hercules though right.

    A lot of users on this forum are dense.. And possibly heavy.

    I think you're confusing the weight I am physically capable of lifting (which I would guess is a reasonable way north of 192g) with the ideal weight I would like my smartphone to be.
    I think you have given those smart a##s more than enough courtesy with your level headed response. It's a shame how some people always have some smart a## response yet can't even comprehend the issue at hand.

    I agree with you! The 9900 is the best size and weight of a phone (130g). Just a pleasure to hold.
    I currently use the Q10 and I could feel a difference (139g). If I were to go to the Classic, I would definitely feel that too (177g) and now 192 with the Priv. I don't like the trend of bigger, heavier phones.

    Right, one of the reasons I send the Classic back was because of its weight. I still do stuff on my phone in bed (holding the device above my head) before turning off the light. The weight balance was just off with the classic and I'm pretty sure that it was only a matter of time before the device would fall on my face and chip some of my teeth. Somehow I don't have any problems with the iPhone 6. The 6s+ is also 192 grams. So I hope the weight balance of the BB Priv won't be as off as it was for me with the Classic. We'll see if I pull the trigger. 800 Euros (off-contract) is a lot of money and compared to an iPhone one will get knocked to the ground hard when selling it on the second-hand market some time later. iPhone is like Rolex. More or less, value remains stable if you decide to sell it after a year. I never lost much money selling my old iPhones.

    It's lighter than than the SE. With it being quite a bit bigger, it should feel way lighter. Also, the first video reviewer spoke of a very thin and light device.

    It might be a little heavier than other devices, but i doubt it's too heavy to the point it becomes uncomfortable. i am sure it will take some getting used to as with most new things people get.

    Vibration function too weak. Very dissatisfied with private intended use purpose of Priv. Needs heavier more powerful motor with lots of torque. Recommend addition of fuel cell canisters.
