    So I dropped my lumia 1020 and cracked most of the screen, still functions but will probably start looking into a new replacement soon. any recommendations to which lumia device I should upgrade to? I cant seem to decide if I want a 1520 the 930 or wait it out for a yet to be announced phone :|

    1520 if you want best specs and like the size.
    930 if you want a smaller screen.
    If you choose to wait, you may be waiting till next year when Windows 10 launches.
    Personally would get the 1520. It's a great phone ;)

    1520... The 930 has no glance or SD card support

    930 in my opinion.

    The raw size of the 1520 rules it out in my eyes. Despite the value of Glance and an IPS LCDisplay to me, I hold size above those.

    However, the 1520 does have better battery life and an SD card slot.

    I would probably be looking at the 830 though because of what I value.

    1020 if you are into photos as nothing else will satisfy you.

    that is my dilemma, I was considering the 1520 because of its 20MP sensor and faster image capture time, but the sheer size of it might make it unusable on a daily basis. the 830 just doesn't seem appealing to me :| and att isn't selling the 930 - gah

    Order a new screen. That's what I did....There is nothing that compares to the 1020. I love the size, performance and camera too much to ditch it. I'm hopeful that MS will release a 1020 successor as it is a great device with a cult like following.

    You could always buy it unlocked and go prepaid or something.
    People use Nexus phones and (until now) they were not sold by ATT

    The problem with the 930 is that it doesn't have the 1700 MHz frequency for T-Mobile and AT&T.

    the 1520 size, is huge but i think i can live with it. i didnt realize it had gorilla glass 2 instead of the 3 found in 1020. moreover, the 1020 screen repair costs just as much as new phone and isnt really easy to replace.

    on second thought...march isn't so far away, if this is true:
