    Sunspider score is in the same range (600-900) as all the other snapdragon 800 phones. Just means its working as expected. Don't read too much into a javascript benchmark that can be easily rigged.


    Nice doggy.


    Can you up a 20MP shot? The back of a bottle with text would be nice.
    I only have a choice of 5 Mp or 16 Mp. There is no 20 Mp just like on the Lumia 1020 there is no 41 Mp only 38 Mp. But since it's halftime sure.

    621!? That's a terrible score! The surface 2 with tegra 4 gets 371ms. Android devices score around 550-600. IE is much much faster than chrome in JavaScript. Windows phone always beats equivalent android devices. There is definitely something going on with this phone or GDR3 has not been optimized for snapdragon 800. Color me extremely dissapointed. Apparently the phone doesn't feel faster either. Hopefully some big changes come in 8.1. Cuz this is bad news

    This question was asked and the answer is probably no, but wondering if a tile can span the entire width of the screen.

    Curious. Not sure if this was mentioned, but do apps need to be refitted, like how 720p devices needed to be refitted? Is there a black bar in some apps? Download weather flow, wpcentral, or whatever, and see if it has a black bar. Thanks.

    Can you please test whether the device can make a phone call and browse the web at the same time while on a cellular network

    there seems to be some confusion as to whether ATT's removal of DTM prevents this ability

    Surface 2 has Windows 8.1 which has IE11 right? Isn't Windows Phone IE Mobile still based on IE10? Maybe that's why.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review: Jugger-note - GSMArena.com

    Look at sunspider chart on this page. Z1 is 845ms. Z Ultra is 750ms. G2 is whopping 908. Note 3 is a little under 600. All use snapdragon 800. The 1520 is in proper range. Nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, each successive update will improve the score, like it has for the LG G2. Because its about software optimization. The hardware itself is identical. Comparing a phone to a tablet is also silly. Tablets do not have the same thermal constraints and battery limitations. If Nokia wanted to rig it some more, they could probably achieve a closer score to the Tegra 4. And like others have said, the IE version may be different as well.

    I don't think IE11 would help it a bunch, but it would do something. I'm sure Microsoft w add IE11 in WP 8.1.

    It's just Apple made a great dual core chip. Sigh.

    battery lasted all day. From 8am to right now using wifi and texting and surfing the web I have 41% left. Color accuracy depends on your flavor. I prefer my 1020.

    No black bar. It seems that the apps are stretched to fit. Example, the apps are like zoomed in which is good but you can tell it's not as precise or clean cut as for a smaller device. I think once the phone is actually released the pictures and apps would look a little cleaner but to me it looks dry.

    As you can see no it doesn't. One wide tile still allows you to add one medium tile next to it or 4 smaller tiles to its sides.

    Good to hear about the battery life. Are you using Whatsapp, WeChat, Skype, etc because those apps usually suck the battery.

    Your experience with this 6" phone is similar to mine when I tried a Samsung Mega 6" phone. They're simply too big.
    There is no Samsung Mega 6" phone, but there is a Samsung Mega 6.3" phone though.
