    It must be a price thingy. Because the 1520 is a better phone for the same size. I have the 1520 and just love the screen on it. The 1320 doesn't have 1080, but it basically has the same screen. I would say make the jump to the 1520 and don't look back.

    I have tried both the 1320 and the 1520, both great devices. I can hardly tell the difference in screen quality and the overall daily performance is almost unnoticeable with the faster 1520. The biggest two reasons why for me to sell the 1320 was the lack of qi charging and the camera. Both phones work flawlessly with T-Mobile USA in all bands and both came from Newegg.

    You will not notice the difference between 267 and 245.

    First, to the original poster I'd like to say - Get the 1320. You will not notice the tiny drop in pixel density. At some point pixel density stops helping and is just a number on a specifications sheet.

    To the Android guy with 8 things he doesn't like on Windows Phone
    1) Yes, try to download big files like Here Maps, Big size games like Asphalt 8 etc. Take today's incident, due to last night heavy rain, my broadband is not working so my WIFI. But my data plan services is working fine. Both are different service provider and I need to update Pocket File Manager, network +, 2048, Line, touch, PDF reader. I have to wait for wifi, no option. Microsoft needs to understand most of the world does not have hi speed WIFI around them like in USA people have.
    I haven't had any trouble having my apps set to auto-update with no WIFI available. Not a single application has complained about a size limit and some of the updates have been 50MB or more. I certainly would NOT want to update HERE maps w/out WIFI since the 2GB USA map would eat my entire data plan in a single sitting.
    2) I may be wrong but in built file manager seems to work more efficiently then third party as it is the issue of deepest kept file in the system and permission from OS.
    They are releasing the official WP 8.1 file manager by end of May or June of this year so this is an extremely weak item that is easily addressed by Pocket File Manager for the remaining 30-60 days.
    5) I may be wrong but I feel WP apps to hide pics does not work efficiently as they don't move files to hidden folder, actually they copy it to hidden folder and after sending pics to that gallery lock, we need to delete it from original and if you want to retrieve it or unlock it, it wont go back to original folder, it goes to "Saved Photos" folder. where already you have many pics saved and you need to search manually for your pics to see. Just imagine if again you want to send it back to lock, again you have to select>send>select>delete from folder.
    Either don't have porn on your phone or don't give it to other people to use if you do. I'm sorry, but this is silly.
    6) Apps are the key to success of any OS now a days. weather its a big company or small, every body has their app in iOS and Android. But WP just can not compete.
    I agree that the apps available for iOS and Android are better, but the vast majority of the big apps are already on WP and the gap is constantly shrinking. I can't think of any deal breaker apps that I just can't live without that I don't already have.
    7) Its my humble request that don't take it personal, I am just giving examples. Imagine someone has some very personal pics of his girlfriend or wife in his phone and if your boss's/friend's phone battery gone dry and he asks for your phone to do few calls, in that case one needs to open the security lock. Or take it other way, everybody has at least few restricted picture or videos in their phone, I case your close one asks for phone just to play around with features so that he/she can make up his/her mind for next phone change then....one needs to protect his phone all the time. What I am telling is very practical thing which happens in our daily life. So, that statement " who needs that" is very theoretical not practical.
    I predict this is a non-issue for 99.9% of people.
    8) you are lucky that you battery is good. Most of the people are facing battery problem after WP 8.1 update.

    It's a developer preview and buggy and not supported by firmware updates (yet). I had some pretty serious heating and battery issues the first few days, but after tweaking some settings my battery life is as good as it's ever been now. I am easily finishing the day with 50% of my battery life intact and I'm using it a lot with cortana, location services, wifi, Bluetooth, automatic app updates all enabled.
