    I love my 1520 and it's worked great, especially with WP 8.1 but the lack of key apps (esp. medical) is just killing it for me. Even non-medical apps like TeamSpeak aren't available which is a bummer. With Apple finally making a phablet, I'm VERY tempted to grab it though knowing it will be limited in supply + Apple's rip-off prices, it probably won't be found for less than $800+ on launch. Anyone else considering the switch?

    5.5" is good.
    iPhone is not so good (at least for me). I'll keep happily my 1520.

    Not as long as Microsoft continues to support/update WP. I have a 1520 as well, and an iPad Mini, so I wouldn't be gaining anything by going with a 5.5" iPhone with the exception of just using a single device. To me, the apps on WP are 90% adequate and the UI and other factors are more important to me than gaining access to the few apps I occasionally might use on my iPad Mini.

    No. I tried being an iPhone guy for 4 months and it just wasn't for me. I hope a 6" Windows Phone comes to Verizon soon.

    Nope. I have a Lumia 820 and an iPad Mini (1st gen). And honestly, I prefer Windows Phone to iOS. Now, there's no doubt that the iPad Mini, and any other Apple device is a stellar device with amazing build quality (especially compared to my 820), I mean I love the way my friends iPhone 5 feels in the hand, but I just don't like iOS too much. I wouldn't have enough money for an iPhone anyway.

    Not buying one. However if TS would have a need for it, then I'd say go and get it. Productivity is important too

    If you're a health professional then you made a mistake getting a windows phone. There are no apps and there will be none in the foreseeable future. Lugging around an iPad just to have access to Medscape was too much for me. I'm now invested in Android. Have all the apps I need.

    I'll be getting 1 or 2 if I can like I did with the 5s and the 5 before hand. Then I will sell them like I did before to the apple dips!ts and make an easy profit on each.

    It's easy to make good money on them however the s models are a bit harder because they are not too much different.

    If music still sucks as much as it does in 8.1, I'm going to iOS.

    Nah.

    iPhones depreciate A LOT in my country.

    You can get the 5 now for free, 64GB at half the monthly fee compared to last year when you have to shell out 400 plus double the monthly fee now. If WP doesn't work for me, I'll get the 5S when my contract is up.

    For the first time an iPhone does tempt me. But I really can't stand the stigma having an iPhone has. Its a weird status symbols thing I don't want to be a part of. I left android when it turned into that with the galaxy 4.

    After having to deal with Apple products and OS's for decades, I hate everything Apple and if all other smartphones disappeared, I'd go back to my Moto razer before I'd get an iPhone. BTW, did I mention I hate everything Apple?

    Not while we get new official apps. But if WP starts getting apps as web wrappers, I might reconsider.

    Nope, not even a little bit. WP is the only platform that's showing promise. iOS is the dullest, most mundane platform I've come across.

    Yeah, but I will most likely never completely leave WP.

    Yup, already saving the money up. Microsoft releasing the bing rewards app 5 months later than iOS and Android and with it just being a webwrapper was the final straw for me.

    I would be if it was smaller. I hope the 4.7" version gets a sapphire glass screen and OIS.
