I have a HTC Tytn II one of the flash phones you ruled out becuase it is
too heavy and I have to say I don't find it heavy at all, I don't notice
it in my pocket and when holding it while on a call I have never noticed

quite heavy but its not that bad... the thing only wieghs 190g you'd
have to be a wimp to find that heavy... its not heavy it just wieghs a bit
