    Initially, that's how I felt.

    About a day later, I was used to the weight and the height.

    Now when I pick up an older iPhone, it feels like a preverbal brick.

    Buy a case with some weight, you'll get used to it.

    I never get over how heavy the 4/4s feels compared to the 5.

    Only for the first 3-4 weeks.

    Now I can notice it's weight. It could stand to lose yet a few more oz :)

    Yep. Also the 4/4S looks too squat after using the 5.

    There's an easy fix --

    tools needed:
    -- Scotch tape
    -- $0.25

    Step 1:
    Take your $0.25 and go to any random store.
    Tell them you'd like 5 nickles

    Step 2:
    Turn iPhone over so the screen is face-down (place on something soft so you don't scratch it)
    Strategically place four of the nickles at each corner and put one in the middle.

    Step 3:
    Use scotch tape to tape nickles in place.

    Enjoy your new "weighted" iPhone 5!!

    Buy a Juice Pack Air. More battery life and it will feel heavier for you.

    Don't miss it.... even if bigger the 5 fits better in my jeans pocket.... it seems like having nothing... the thickness of 5 is perfect to me

    You'll get used to it and after you do, when you pick up an iPhone 4 or 4S, you'll think, "Damn, this thing is heavy!"

    Buy a temperate glass screen protector, that should add on some weight and would give great screen protection.

    Same. I love the size and weight of the 5. It's crazy when holding the 4 and 5 in each hand how truly light the 5 is!

    You'll get used to the weight no doubt whatsoever.

    Whenever I pick up a friends 4S you think how the hell anyone would put up with a phone that heavy lol. Its silly really because they are both very good phones. One is not exactly a brick and the other is not exactly a piece of paper :p
