One of the clearest differences between the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X is the weight of the two handsets.

HTC, who is vying with Nokia as the premier Windows Phone 8 OEM, has not let this differences lie, and have posted the above image and message on their Facebook page, saying:

Don’t get weighed down.
The HTC 8X is more than 20 pennies lighter than that "other"Windows Phone.

Given that at 130 g the HTC 8X is in fact 55 g lighter than the 185 g Nokia Lumia 920, and pennies weight 5 g, HTC is not wrong, but is it really the big deal HTC makes it out to be?

Nokia Lumia 920 owners, do you feel weighed down? Let us know below.
