Windows Phone 8 and 7 devices get sized up in new comparison chart

For those who are considering a new Windows Phone 8 device, size may matter. And since we can't quite just head to our local carrier to get a hands on assessment, the next best thing is a well-made comparison chart to help discern any differences.

Reader Munkeyphyst had kindly made such a chart and it features all the new Windows 8 devices (ATIV S, 8X, 8S, Lumia 920, Lumia 820) in addition to some of the most popular current Windows Phone 7 devices (Titan II, Focus S, Focus, Lumia 900, Lumia 800). 

Biggest surprise? Who knew that ATIV S would be that tall? Sure it makes sense with its 4.8" screen, but it's still something else to see it sized up to the others.

Feel free to discuss in comments on whether size matters for you.
