    That is the original build for the phones. They have had at least 2 updates since that build.

    When you check for updates are you connected to WiFi?
    Ok, so I got the update problem fixed. And I think the sensitivity problem got better, not gonna say completely fixed, but it's getting there. It's not an issue anymore.

    One thing I did notice after the update, my phone used to have almost 0 battery drain when the phone is on standby, now it drains around 2% each hour on standby. Does anybody else notice this or is it just me?

    What makes you think that is a phone bug and not an issue with the types of cards you are using? What "speed/type" are they?
    Thanks! I made sure to look up the cards in the forum prior to purchasing. Others have had success with the cards. Here they are:

    Amazon.com: SanDisk Ultra 32 GB MicroSDHC C10/UHS1 Memory Card with Adapter (SDSDQU-032G-AFFP-A): Electronics

    Amazon.com: SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1 Memory Card 30MB/s with Adapter SDSDQU-064G-AFFP-A: Electronics

    Between 1-2% drain is normal on standby if you're not in a perfect cell reception zone and/or if you leave WiFi on.

    I always leave WiFi on, is that good or bad?

    Actually, I think those are the cards that DO have issues based on the posts in this forum. 30mbs is not fast enough according to posts I have read.

    Here is a link to the Ultra version...80mbs...I have the 32MB version of this card and have not had a single issue.

    Extreme Plus cards from Sandisk are the units required to not have any issues. The Extreme and below models have all had reported issues. The Extreme Plus line are the only ones I have seen with little to no reports.

    It is neither. Having something on that uses power uses power. That's all. :)

    I've updated and my 1520 still has the tap instead of swipe error all the time.. I'm starting to believe that it is a factory defect.. So thing to do with the way they shoved these new screen types on top the camera.. I think the camera lens is being pressed against the screen from underneath on all these phones.. I can't believe that Nokia hasn't responded to this yet .. Its been going on with lots and lots of people. People that have given up and returned their phones for "new" 1520's are still having this problem with the new ones..

    It's an IPS LCD. It's not a new screen type.

    The number of reports I see is fairly small to be honest. I usually see a way larger number of reports for something that is a huge issue.

    Does anyone have any battery life issues with this phone? I bought mine yesterday and my discharge rate is bad. On my first charge it hold up very well. But second time not so much. Could be because its new? Don't know.

    I think that's because the swipe issue is a random annoyance and almost never a show stopper. A lot of people does not even realize that their phones are defective and others just don't care.

    I have read several posts where a new replacement phone have had the same issue. Only one or two cases where the first replacement was a success. I know this isn't scientific statistics but it does suggest that this issue is quite common and that a significant percentage of all 1520s are affected.

    You are likely in an area where cell coverage is less than ideal at times. In those situations you would pull less power using WiFi than the cell radio.

    It can also indicate batch specific issues or a number of other things as well. Without a large proper sample it is hard to tell.

    Mind posting a pic of the new charger? Last time they sent you a non-OEM piece of junk. I'm wondering if they didn't do the same or if the first piece of junk didn't ruin your phone.

    Also to be fair this is for tracking issues from the factory. Your issues are from a 3rd party purchased phone of unknown quality

    So far, I have seen only one other person with this "bug" from browsing these forums.



    My micro SD (64 GB sandisk, 32 GB sandisk, and kingston 16 GB ) cannot be detected by the phone. The Micro SD option is grayed out under Settings.



    In addition, the phones takes much longer to reboot (about 4-5 minutes) when there is an SD card, even though it is not detecting it.



    Done a factory reset and formatted the cards as per Nokia customer support, but the bug remains.



    Anyone else know why my Lumia 1520 cannot read / detect my Micro SD? or had the same problem?



    I am attaching some screen shots.

    not sure if your question has been answered already, but i posted a similar issue earlier for my san disk card.

    The problem is with the way the card is preformatted so wp doesn't recognize it. Try formatting the card in another device to see if it works. I had my card tested/formatted in an android device, then my 1520 recognized the card.

    Treats swipes as taps is driving me crazy. I find if I swipe up first, and then down, it can work. But who wants to live life that way?

    Yeah they sent you another fake. I would file a serious complaint as that is not an OEM Nokia charger. Maybe contact Nokia and see if they can help you?

    I would tell this seller he needs to stop selling used equipment as new with bogus accessories included.

    Never trust when someone says suitable, equivalent, compatible, etc.

    Always insist on receiving the real genuine charger that ships with the phone from Nokia. Didn't you mention that the seller sold this as new? If so tell Nokia all the details. They work hard to shutdown scam artists since it hurts the reputation of Nokia when things like this happen. People start to think it is a brand issue when it's not.

    My first 1520 had a weird screen. At normal brightness it was perfect but at low brightness it became unevenly lit. Lower still (via auto brightness function), the back light would actually flicker and a week later the top left corner would die out completely at very low brightness. Not good for someone who likes to use their phone in bed at night where the screen brightness dims right down.

    O2 did replace the phone on the spot when I took it back, so props to them for that. The new phone doesn't exhibit this behaviour at anything like that level, though I will note, at the very very low brightness level (which is often only seen just before the screen locks out and switches off anyway) the backlight will flicker. This is not an issue though as you can't reach that level of back light in normal use I don't think. However, I think it is not so much a hardware problem but a software one, I think the LEDs are simply not fed enough voltage for stable operation, so the ambient light and auto brightness control just needs a tweak.

    I have also had an issue whereby the phone refused to recognise that it was plugged in. I woke up in the morning to find the phone hadn't charged at all over night. I switched off the phone with the charger still attached and it promptly fired itself back up and began charging, so god knows what caused that.

    I tried reformatting all 3 cards I used 2 San Disks (as per above) and a Kingston 16GB used on my old Note. 32 and 16 GB formatted to FAT32/32KB and 64GB to exFAT/128kb as per the Nokia phone rep. No go on the 1520 but all three were working with the note and the GoPro.

    The phone is with Nokia right now (sent it in with a 2 day shipping) and should have an answer within 7-10 business days.

    I will update once I hear from them.
