I am torn. I love the size of the screen but I do not like the weight. I’m hoping I will get used to it because every other thing about this phone down to the modem is amazing. What do you all think so far? I’m only on day two. Hoping I will get used to the weight.

The difference is only a few grams. I had to get used to the form factor more then anything. The flat edges de needed some getting used too

Maybe it’s the case I’m using. When I take the case off it isn’t bad.

It took no time whatsoever for me. I don’t feel that the phone is heavier and feels better in hand than the 11PM. Maybe you have muscle memory from the rounded edges of the 11PM, and it may take a bit to get used to the new form of the 12 PM.

The weight difference is negligible to me coming from the 11PM. I even tried the 12 Pro this year, but I returned it for the 12 PM: even then, the increase in weight was never an issue.

I'm coming from a 7 plus and I think the 12 Pro Max is heavier. It also may be the straight edges that feel a little too hard. I was on a lengthy phone call yesterday and really noticed that my hand hurt from the edges and my firm grip. I love the phone and expect to get used to it. I'm definitely keeping it.

Luv everything about the new phone esp how shiny it is. Even the graphite model which is the one I have. Hope the display issue will be fixed though.

Weight is a none issue for me. A few grams doesn't matter. I'm rocking a Caudabe Lucid case and it doesn't add any bulk.

It's a heavy phone, but so was the 11 PM. Running with it in my pocket is still a chore. I appreciate the larger screen, the speakers and the shape which makes it easier to grip.
