    Welp.. I have no one to blame but myself.. It's my fault. I should have bought a case plain and simple. Why would I not get a case? Nobody wants to see a naked yellow 1020 anyway! I mean... Why do they even color them? Why? People have to put a case on these.. so might as well get a black one. Stupid stupid stupid Man am I stupid... Really disappointed with myself.

    I guess I'm looking at another $200 mistake. I think you can only make a maximum of two insurance claims a year... So this better be my last one.

    So which ugly azz case should I buy?

    Ok, so I just made ANOTHER insurance claim. Another $200 deductable... You think I'll learn my lesson and get a case this time?

    Strange thing happened too though, btw... I decided to call the claim in instead of using the website. Everything went through as it should, but at the end, as the lady on the phone was confirming my order/claim, she says "ok, we have a 1520 being shipped to..." "what, don't you mean a 1020?" I replied. "I'm only showing the 1520s as available sir"... So I guess I'm getting a 1520 as a replacement for my 1020. I didn't really want a 1520... What about my 41MP camera? And my Xenon flash??

    Uggh..

    I guess the insurance company is out of stock on 1020s and have only 1520s to replace them with. I don't know how I feel about this just yet...

    I suppose if I really want a 1020, I could buy one off eBay or somewhere. It's not like anyone will care if my pictures are 20MP versus 34-38 Mega pixels. The absence of the Xenon flash with take away some of my photography possibilities though.

    So what's a good (and good looking) case for the 1520?

    There's more to the differences of camera between 1020 and 1520, than Xenon flash and Megapixels. I own both. The 1020 is just better, especially when your not outside in perfectly kit scenes. The 1020 mops the floor with the 1520 indoors.

    As a phone, I prefer the 1520 in every other area though.

    Exactly, that's why I didn't really want this 1520 as my insurance replacement. I take a LOT of pics with the 1020. I'll definitely have to buy one for my camera needs, as its got me spoiled.

    Of course I do still have that upgrade still on that other line. I could get a 1020 on that line, or wait and see if they come out with a real 1020 successor sometime this fall/early 2015? (wishful thinking here!)

    The more I think about it, the more I'm part excited, and part saddened. It's kinda weird how I'm being forced into this upgrade, though completely my fault...

    As long as you can manage the size, you'll love the 1520. Beautiful screen, loud speakers, great battery life, faster than the 1020. When I grab my 1020 now everything seems too cramped and hard to read. This 6" phone really spoiled me. It will probably feel ridiculous at first, but after a couple days, it will feel more "normal".

    Thanks for the reassurance. Managing the size might be an issue as I usually keep my phone in my pocket... Maybe I can get a belt clip thing or something.. Hmmm

    What about cases? I want Otterbox Defender protection without Otterbox ugly lol..

    Hey you know what would be cool? If the 1520 got here and had 8.1 installed out of the box! lol

    Yeah, I'm currently in the dev preview on the broken 1020. Still kinda bummed out about breaking another one... That makes one 920, and two 1020s that I've dropped and shattered the glass on... I WILL be purchasing a case for this 1520!

    Any recommendations?

    Wow ya make sure you get a case for the 1520. I've had a 920, currently have a 1020..dropped both many times without any scratches or dents....you wont want to break that 1520 beautiful screen.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Is that Nilkin a screen protector or a case? I'm not sure I'd like it if I doesn't sit flush with the screen.
    And idk about a "gel" or "pudding" case either.. Those don't sound like they'd protect from a fall/cracked screen.

    The defender has a screen protector. I thought you didn't like the idea of screen protectors?

    I think when the 1520 gets here, I'm gonna do a clean install. (not restore my backup) start from scratch.. Thoughts?

    Up to you. Probably won't make that much of a difference.

    I don't... Really.... And I don't like the idea of a case on a beautiful Nokia.. But since I can't seem to hold onto these dang things, I'm gonna have to get one.

    I'd like a case that protects the whole phone from falls (cracking the screen) a screen protector is optional.. As long as the case protects the screen from getting cracked, I'd prefer the screen naked/exposed for sensitivity and touch/feel reasons. Idk.. I just can't break another one!

    From the sounds of it you will need Spidy Grip lol BTW just wondering you could have replaced the 1020 screen twice over for the amount you spent on the warranty

    Yeah, i know but the only place I could find locally was $150 and it was "drop off my phone to them"... I cant go without my phone, so this was the best way (since this broken screen 1020 is still working technically. And all I had to do was call it in, I didn't have to go anywhere, and it'll be shipped right to my door. Refurbed from the factory too, instead of Jose down the road lol

    I was just looking at the Asurion website (the company that handles AT&T's phone insurance claims) and they are indeed, according to my account, sending me an AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 BLACK.

    Black? Does this mean the 32GB AT&T model??? Oh man I hope so... that would really make me happy!

    Damn... I was just thinking "what about my 1020's camera grip?" Maybe I could sell it on here...

    Nah... I just need to buy another 1020 eventually for it!

    The incipio dualpro protects really well. I know a couple people who has it (for a different phone, non Lumia) and one of them dropped a couple times, once face down and another time flat on the back. Nothing broken at all. Though both has screen protectors, one glass and one urethane. The one who has the urethane screen protector plans to go back to glass screen protector but my point is that the case protects really well.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Hmmm a "glass" screen protector? Interesting... Got a link to those?
