    Disappointing to hear. I had seen this video during MWC, and was really excited to get gorilla glass 3 on this year's flagships.

    I've missed you & your million $ make me smile anytime avatar man.

    Another point to add : No integrated wireless charging in the US AT&T Model of Lumia 1520 :(
    on att i was going for it but its waterd down! Its not competitive! 16gb of storage ? That suck im on a gdr3 device and still sitting on 10gb of other so only 16 GB of storage is a deal breaker and no wireless charging? Big step back!

    I treat my phone like baby. But despite all these measure, there are unavoidable circumstances in which your phone will be dropped once a twice in its entire life cycle.
    As has already been noted more than once, Gorilla glass is not going to add much in case of a fall. It is about scratch resistance and general durability. As many owners of every Gorilla glass screen on the market can attest, drop the device and the screen can break. Quite frankly, just adding another digit foes not mean a better product for the intended use. It simply means newer and in some cases even that is not true.

    I dropped my 720 from lets say the height of my chest, am 5.9. Phone was dropped flat on marble floor, no damage done, except the vibration started to crackle a bit.
    I had the phone replaced as I had other faults.

    The 1320 has Gorilla Glass 3... Just saying...
    Stupid move. The 1320 should be the one with GG2, and 1520 with GG3. Not that it is a major deal, but it is a factor.

    GG3 is the current generation compared to previous generation GG2. So it has to be stronger, just like the way GG2 is stronger than GG1

    while there might not be AMOLED tv's, there are OLED tv's which is pretty close to AMOLED. LG 55EM960V Television - This 55" OLED TV is an eco-friendly revolution in picture quality and ultra slim design - LG Electronics UK

    can you show me where lcd's consume less energy? i have always thought amoled's do because the black is actually turned off pixels that are not drawing any power when they are black.

    samsung is the leader in amoled tech. their note 3 doesnt even have a 6 inch amoled screen. so they were not going to make a screen for nokia that would outdo their new flagship as far as amoled goes.
    Samsung do not manufacture displays for Nokia, Nokia use Pentax or some other manufacturer. AMOLED technology wasn't found by Samsung and they do not own any rights to the technology.

    i didnt say samsung makes displays for nokia, in fact i said they wouldnt. while amoled wasnt invented by samsung, they are the largest manufacturer of amoled displays.

    "By 2004 Samsung, South Korea's largest conglomerate, was the world's largest OLED manufacturer, producing 40% of the OLED displays made in the world,[96] and as of 2010 has a 98% share of the global AMOLED market.[97] The company is leading the world of OLED industry, generating $100.2 million out of the total $475 million revenues in the global OLED market in 2006.[98] As of 2006, it held more than 600 American patents and more than 2800 international patents, making it the largest owner of AMOLED technology patents."

    which was my point of samsung will not make a 6 inch amoled display for nokia because of competition. they dont want all the nokia display tech added to their amoled display at 6 inches to out do their own note 3 5.7 inch amoled display. ironically, the LCD display they used in the lumia 1520 has already out done the note 3's display.

    How tough is Corning Gorilla Glass 2? Corning puts it to the test.
    How tough is Corning Gorilla Glass 2? I'll tell you. In the first hour of using my 8X, the screen became more scratched up than my Omnia 7 was over two years. I operated it no different than my Omnia 7, I used my fingers and slipped it in and out of my pocket.

    Who cares what machines they put it under when they can't account for ordinary wear-and-tear.

    Why do you line your pockets with sandpaper and wear steel wool gloves?

    I know that GG2 is more prone to scratches than GG1 and many users on the internet have debated about this based on their personal experience but GG2 is still as strong as GG1 despite being thinner than GG1. The thinness accounts for brighter images and and enhanced touch sensitivity which Nokia implemented very well so you can still use your touchscreen phones while wearing gloves.

    If AT&T offers their version of the 1520 for $99, okay. As the cost to Nokia of the extra 16GB flash and the Qi circuit is less than $5, Nokia could have subsidized AT&T to offer the full spec 1520 for less than what they spent on that huge vapor launch in Abu Dhabi.

    With no shipping product, no availability dates, no prices, etc., throwing that huge bash in Abu Dhabi just seems like a crass tasteless joke, a last bit of puffery for that buffoon, Elop.

    It makes me laugh to hear that Elop is being considered for CEO of Microsoft. Elop can't even ship a phone without making a mess of it. Microsoft would crash and burn with a dolt like Elop at the helm.

    Your anger should be 100% directed to AT&T, not Nokia. If AT&T orders a phone a certain way, what is Nokia supposed to do? Are they in a position to turn down a big carrier like AT&T? How is this Elop's fault?

    LCD has the full array of sub-pixels, that to me is better than the 1/3 missing as seen in AMOLED screens. As for GG3 v GG2, well I couldn't care less. In short there is no backwards step here, only big steps forward again.

    That's a good thing, though! IPS LCD>>>>>>>>>>>>AMOLED IMO!
    Not on my 1520! The phone is stuck on ultra bright and has very uneven lighting!

    no it doesnt make glance pointless. if you notice, glance is very dim. amoled and lcd both get dim. that is not specific to a display tech.
    but with AMOLED's, if its black, the pixels should actually be off. LCD can't do that, AFAIK.

    I have a theory on the gorilla glass 2 vs 3, perhaps its because of the way the glass is raised around the edges, and GG3 would be too thin so you couldn't have the raised above the polycarbonite and smoothed corners that the 1520, 920 have
