    I went to my local AT&T store and saw the 1520. Like most people my first impression was: it's big! It was lighter than I anticipated and comfortable to hold. I have a glossy white phone now but I liked the matte finish of the black store demo. The screen is beautiful and it definitely benefits from having an extra column of tiles. I didn't notice any difference in responsiveness compared to my 920 but I didn't expect to. As I play with the phone I realized it didn't feel awkward in my hand at all and in no time I had adapted to it's size. My 920 seemed small after playing with the 1520.

    One thing that really annoyed me though was later in the day I was test driving a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe and the dealer was pointing out all the things you could do with their Blue Link system and your smartphone: lock, unlock, start or locate the car, etc. Of course this only works with Android and iPhone.

    I'm just glad there's an Onstar app for WP. I have to switch cars when I get off work so, I start my wife's car from work when I leave and it's warm and clear when I get home.

    Another thing I discovered when I looked at the 1520: Bing News! I had no idea it was on Windows Phone. Love it.

    Michelle, after customizing and installing apps you need, how much internal memory do you have left?

    I just saw it on Friday.

    Wow. It's huge! I actually starts laughing when I saw it. But in a giddy way. It was ridiculous... but awesome.

    The screen was stellar and the camera was much better than I expected.

    I want one.

    If I wasn't on contract right now I would have picks it up.

    I played with one at my local AT&T store yesterday. That screen is unbelievable. Like everyone has said, it is thin and light, but huge. I'd prefer the RM-938 variant so I could try out T-Mobile, but easily go back to AT&T if the coverage didn't work out. Plus the 8.1 thing seems to be hanging over my head...I've had my Titan for 2 years but I need more convincing to go with the 1520 I guess.

    I have two lines and I need to port the numbers over. So switching is a little more complicated for me, unfortunately.
