    Sure, it does make sense. I wish the 1520 also came with that charger. It has a bigger battery and takes a really long time to charge with the regular charger.

    Also, I wonder, why the Microsoft website doesn't mention that it's Quick Charge 2.0 capable http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=ugjoX7o5 like how the Motorola website does for the Turbo Charger http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=x69ayQpT.
    1520 is Quick Charge 2.0 Certified, also ships with the AC-60 charger.

    The Microsoft site does explain how you can charge up to 35% faster - http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=ugjoX7o5

    Yes, my 1520 has the same charger but it surely isn't giving me as fast as charge as Quick Charge 2.0 is advertised to give. Up to 8 hours or charge in 15 minutes or even 30 minutes? Nope.

    Also the AC-60 specification mentions 5V/1.5A output whereas the Quick Charge test charger has a 9V/2A output. This leads me to believe that the charger in the box isn't the quickest.

    It depends on the implementation of Quick Charge 2.0

    I'd really like to get to the bottom of this because I am tired with the amount of time it takes my 1520 to get to full charge. I'll try with a 2A charger and see how it goes.

    I'm awaiting an email from Microsoft, I'm starting to think the stock charger only gives a boost charge...
    If so, I'll buy a Motorola Turbo Charger...

    Something I guess I missed while reading the Nexus 6 specs, it has an Amoled display. That's unbelievably awesome.

    Going by the reactions on some Android forums I can see that a lot of people are disappointed with the price and are looking to get a OnePlus One instead.

    Yep, there's a lot of people unhappy about the price. The problem with cheap phones though, is that they have compromises. The small battery of last years Nexus was a real downer for me. I'd rather pay more and get a great phone.

    I'm also very curious about this because I don't believe my 930 is getting charged as fast it's supposed to be. Today for the first time ever I actually got a pop-up message saying something like "your phone is charging slowly, use the adapter and usb cable which came with the phone for faster charging". I am using the charger that came out of the box! ... But I'm using a longer usb cable which I bought separately because I needed a longer cable. Do you think it actually matters what kind of cable you're using? I don't see why it would make a difference but this pop-up message clearly said that I should also be using the provided Nokia cable.

    Ugh this is so confusing...

    I think you can follow this thread. Someone is using the Moto Turbo Charge and getting 60% charge per hour - http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...0-icon-dp.html.

    According to the email from MSFT, there are 2 types of charger currently certified.
    Class A: 5/9/12V
    Class B: 5/9/12/20V

    So, if you have a Lumia 1520 or 930, you need to buy a Quick Charge 2.0 charger and use the cable it comes with. Urgh :/

    Are you referring to the Nexus 6? If the carriers sell it, they should give it the same support as any other carrier device.
    That's right. If the carrier sells it, they'll back it up. Just like the galaxy nexus.

    No offense to WP users, but Android L puts Windows Phone to shame.

    Android 5.0 Lollipop - Developer Preview (latest):

    But I suppose we should give WP a few more months(or years) to catch up with those features.

    Extremely excited. And I'm keep my N5 for this(was planning to sell it before)

    Wow..tell me how smooth it is after using for a couple of weeks or a month. I have my device for almost a year now and it haven't failed me once except for a couple of occasions(rogue apps) and I can't almost remember when was the last time I performed a hard reset. Ahh...the day before I walk out of the store with my new Red Glossy 1520 to test whether it would brick with the process.

    The whole Android gets laggy after a few months is very old now, stop bringing in that up again and again.

    I've never had to hard reset any of my devices released after 2012, this includes my current Nexus 5(not laggy at all, but camera needs repair).

    Same as day one. Android L is very well coded. It's not an issue with newer devices and especially with Android 5.0

    People are so excited to bring their new puppy home, they forget to housebreak it. What I mean is that ALL smartphones come with default factory settings that the OEM uses to show off all its features. These may or may not suit you. It takes time to properly set up a phone and that usually means disabling a lot of resource-consuming features that you will never use. I never use NFC but I've never seen a WP phone that doesn't boot up without it being on. NFC is a battery hog and it's well documented here and elsewhere but if you ignore it, you'll be complaining about the battery life sucking on your phone. That's just one example, due diligence is every owner's responsibility.

    I installed Lollipop on my Nexus 5 this morning, and I simply cannot put my phone down. Everything is new it seems, and it's a very fluid and delightful experience. That's all I'm going to say.

    How does it play with apps? What I mean is, does Lollipop seem to be optimized for older apps that still run on Dalvik?

    I really enjoy reading your posts, even when you provide no sources I know that we can rely on you to provide accurate and unbiased information to the WPCentral community.
    With that said, I am highly intrigued by what you said about NFC, I always keep it on with my Nexus 5(and as you know N5 doesn't have the best battery life as is), I am interested in reading more about NFC's impact on battery life. Mind giving me some more detail?
    I've never cared much about it, because despite it being on always, it has never shown up in my battery stats:
    That's very kind of you. Since you asked in a very nice fashion, I'll break my own rules and provide you with this:

    How does NFC affect battery life on mobile handsets? - Quora

    I'm not in the habit of providing "sources" or "links" because I'm so old-school, it hurts. I took journalism in middle school and high school and was always taught to keep sources close to the vest. Besides, you young whippersnappers don't want to work, y'all want everything gift-wrapped.

    The NFC's effect on the battery is negligible in Android. I don't believe you'd get any noticeable improvement in battery life by disabling it.

    Microsoft has a lot of work to do on WP's NFC. I don't even use it on my WPs because it's virtually worthless. Combine that with it also being an energy vampire and there's little incentive to leave it turned on.

    I have Android L installed on my Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi model, and I agree! I haven't put it no my Nexus 5. It's my primary device, so I'm waiting for the official release.
