Do you feel your 12 Pro is too heavy?

Also the non pro 12 feels too thick & heavy for me.
Up until the 6, they always tried to make phones thinner & lighter.
And then there was bendgate.
I would appreciate if thin & light became a desired feature again.
Bulk & weight are the reasons for me to use the mini, although I very much like the bigger screen of the 12/pro.

The only time I really think about the weight of my 12 Pro Max, is on days like today.
I am wearing shorts today, so, as soon as I place the phone in my pocket, I feel like my shorts (with a belt!) is falling off...

Update!

I got the 12 Pro non max and the 12 128gb regular and after using them both for a week I decided on the 12. I know the price difference is small and the pro has more RAM, better camera... but for an average user like me coming from an 8 Plus the 12 is far superior than my 8 Plus and I was looking for a more comfortable and lighter device so I returned the 12 Pro. Thank you for your input.

The regular 12 is an excellent phone. I really see no need for the pro version and that’s coming from a pro (11 pro) user. The lightness of the 12 is extremely comfortable to hold. Enjoy it!

I think my 12 Pro is balanced nicely and I like the solid feel of the device. At first I was skeptical about the square edges versus round, but I have adapted nicely and love the device.

I personally don’t think the iPhone 12 Pro is too heavy, though my wrists bend easy and are a little fragile , so that might be a problem.

While I love my 12 Pro, I agree that the 12 is a great phone as well. I had a difficult time choosing between the two.

Yup, the differences this cycle are so minimal it makes it very difficult to make a decision! While I myself always go for the “best” model, I would have to go with the regular 12 this time around. I have the 11 pro and it’s in too good of condition to get rid of for the 12s. First time I haven’t done a yearly upgrade! Proud of myself lol

7 months later and I still feel that the 12 Pro Max isn’t heavy. At times I wish it was bigger. I use thin cases which don’t add much weight of any. This phone is the first one I’m considering to keep for another year. I just love the Pacific Blue color.

Well, I have the 11 pro and, yes, I feel it is too heavy especially compared to my Pixel 4a. My 4a goes into my pocket and I forget it’s there, like my wallet. The iPhone feels like a brick. Too much glass and no need for it. It’s especially bothersome in summer.
