    So I cant decide between the 1520 and the 930, and its all because of the screen.

    I used to have a 925, but i just hated the screen because it was not sharp at all, i could see all the pixels and I think the amoled screen was the issue, so im kinda scared because the 930 also has an amoled screen. The 1520 on the other hand is just too big, but i know IPS is sharp as hell so im not worried about that, its just the size.

    has the same specs as the 930 with other additions like:
    - A better battery. Excellent battery life
    - MicroSD card slot up to 128GB
    - Glance screen
    - IPS Display (I prefer IPS to AMOLED but that's just me)

    - Too big (but really it isn't for me)

    I'd get the 1520 but if you find it too big, I'd recommend the 930 just because of the size

    If you are only confused about the display, not the specs, then I think 930 is the excellent choice.
    As I know, the sharpness of the display depends on its pixel density (ppi), and I don't think it's about AMOLED or IPS LCD. Each of them has its own pros and cons but I don't think it's related to sharpness, just my opinion.
    I've checked the specs of those three phones, and here are their pixel densities:
    - 925: 334 ppi
    - 930: 441 ppi
    - 1520: 368 ppi
    That means, about sharpness, Lumia 930 is the boss.
    And also, some Lumia 930 reviews I've watched/read so far are all positive about its display, just for your information.
    Hope that helps 😊

    I know, but people were praising the 925 for its screen too. But god I hated it, the white was yellow as &^(&)*&)(*&)(*&()&^*&*(^, and the screen birghtness, even when it was set to high, was still pretty low. The screen is just the biggest issue, I dont care about the specs, I just want a good, sharp screen

    But with the 930 there is the purple hue problem on the screen. Never came across anyone with that problem on the 1520 so far

    As long as the Whites are, well, white and not yellow, im cool with whatever hue there is. Again, i want the display to be sharp, i dont want to see any pixels.

    Then 930 will be a good choice, or one more suggestion: You can wait for the HTC One W8, it has the same pixel density as the 930. And also, you must check the phone, see how its display works right in the store before you buy it. Just saying.
