    I currently have the 920 but sadly none of the recent low end phones are making me want to go out and upgrade. I really like the 1520 but don't want to buy a phone that's a year old, or should I go with the 930? Can anyone help thanks

    What country do you live in, and what carrier do you have?

    If you're in the US, the HTC One M8 for Windows is available for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile.

    The 1520 might be a year old... But is still at the pinnacle of Windows Phone devices.

    There is not another WP phone out there that does more except (arguably) the One M8. And that is just a slightly faster CPU. You probably would not even notice the difference unless you are a benchmark fanatic.

    What does the 1520 lack (besides newness) that you would miss?

    The 930 is also a beast of a phone and will be eligible for most future updates coming our way in 2015..

    You could wait for the next flagship phone, if you don't mind going into a cryogenic slumber until the year 2083 when the next WP flagship is expected to come out.

    Also are you planning on subsidizing the next device or buy it outright? That can help influence in what device is worth getting before the change to Windows 10.

    Being a person that wants/needs the shiniest toy can also be a deciding factor here hehe

    Remember time is relative. The 1520 only seems old to those caught up in metrics that the average consumer knows nothing about. For what its worth, the simple fact that the 1520 stacks up pretty nicely against the iPhone 6+ and the galaxy S5 and the Note 4 being considered archaic in technical chronology speaks for itself. As an everyday operator of one, I'd say its an amazing phone that doesn't feel dated at all. There are so many amazing things about the 1520, but I would simply be undermining it, for only those who have used one truly know just how powerful it is. Spec tests are for Android phones.

    True.. The 1520 shouldn't be considered as being an old device just yet.. At least not before 2016.. After MS releases devices which run on SD 805 or so then you can consider the 1520 an old device, because of the SD 800, but even then the difference in speed will be 5-10 seconds or so

    Thanks for all the info, I do really love the 1520, and I'm the uk, and would be purchasing the phone outright. I seem to email all the time or use word or excel so I thought a bigger phone would suit what I use it for, I have had the 920 since it came out and it does feel dated.

    I think I'm scared of purchasing either phone, when I have a feeling that a never version might come out soon. As I was hoping the new 1520 would of been announce by now.

    Its sad because I've been looking at iPhones and even considering a android phone when I really dislike them.

    Appreciate the advice.

    Oh p.s I do like the look of the m8 but no word on release date in the uk
