    Same camera. 1520 is huge, bigger battery, microSD, possible issues with screen sensitivity (due to flexing?). 930 is large but in the realm of normal, screen should be beautiful but if they've buggered it like the 929 with the 8.1 update, that's out. No Glance either. Battery average at best.

    Hello, these phones are very similar and there main difference is essentially size, apart from the fact that the 1520 has a few advantages...

    1520
    -has larger battery
    -has larger 6in screen
    -supports Glance feature
    -has an IPS LCD display
    -supports micro SD cards
    -supports LTE in the U.S

    930
    -has a sharper AMOLED display


    What I have listed under the 1520, the 930 doesn't have, and what I have listed under the 930, the 1520 doesn't have. These are really the only differences between these two phones.

    They were made to pretty much be the same phone in two different sizes closely related, like the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 plus...they both have the exact same camera..Lastly the 1520 is a few months older so its often found much cheaper

    Each phone has their own common issues & also

    1520
    -often obtains touch issues from flexing in peoples pockets
    -screen is easily damaged

    930
    -known for getting very hot
    -known for having less than average battery life, although some have reported better battery with latest firmware
    -screen is known to flicker

    It is up to you to decide which phone is for you & which cons/issues you'd rather take the risk of facing..

    The 1520's has very few issues, & are somewhat preventable,but can VERY much ruin the phones experience if you encounter them, while the 930 has many more flaws, but they're all mild & shouldn't really ruin the phones experience, as they are easier to ignore
