The PS Vita is thicc, as the children say; it weighs 260g and is quite compact. The Nintendo Switch, for comparison, weighs around 400g with the Joy-Con controllers attached and around 300g without; but it has a significantly larger form factor. It’s fair to say that the PS Vita is positively big, all things considered.
