    I bought this phone primarily for the killer specs that it has and not really for the screen size, so I went from the 1020 to this, not knowing how I would like it, but honestly from someone who has never used a phablet before, I'm starting to really dig it. One hand texting isn't that possible but I don't recall one hand texting with the 1020 much either. Watching videos on this phone is such a pleasure. I hope that Xbox Video on Windows Phone rolls out soon. I also immensely enjoy Xbox Music on a larger screen.

    Most noteworthy - the sound quality on this phone is ridiculously good. I tuned the EQ the same way as my 1020 and I have noticed ever better sound.

    I was at the AT&T store and started playing with the 1520 by pretending to type out a text message using just one hand.

    Three ladies tried to give me their numbers.

    I am not a major video watcher, and use my phone as a music/podcast player more then anything else. I LOVE you singled out the audio in your write up.

    I am like you- the spec sheet is selling me, not the screen size. I would have much prefered a 5"- 5.3" screen. But, this monster is just future proof, and the specs will allow WP 8.1 to work like it was shipped with it on it without waiting on the WP 8.1 devices. (I hope...)

    I have no need to open my computer any more since This big screen does the job as web browser so good now. I mainly did just web browsing. I can leave it for gaming only now.

    Just need get used to size and typing whit it. For now it feels bit too wide typing on landscape mode and letters on Center are bit hard to reach. Getting case on This would help since device is too Thin to hold comfortable and bit more bulk would help to hold This Better.

    I'm positive the 1520 is too big for me (petite woman here, and although my fingers are long, I have small hands), but I'm still planning a trip to the mall with my best friend (who also has small hands, lol) one of these days just to check out this monster at the AT&T store there. I think the 920/1020 is the perfect size phone for me, but the 1520 definitely looks gorgeous from what I've seen so far and in spite of never having seen it in person (yet).

    I had not taken a trip to the AT&T store to look at this behemoth before I ordered one, and I knew it was going to be big, but I didn't think it was going to be THIS BIG. Having said that, I have been using it for three days now, and I love it. I don't think I could go back to my 1020 now. I have had a bunch of people ask me "uhh, is that a phone?" so far and when I show them the screen they are in awe.

    This phone is HUGE, but it does everything it's supposed to and it does it in BIG style. I love it. The fact that it's thin is a huge seller. If you have small hands, it may not really work all that well for you, but it does two things really well regardless. Those two things are 1) EVERYTHING and 2) get attention.

    I had wrist surgery on my dominant had a week before this monster came out. I really thought it be hard to use as my one hand was wrapped in a splint and mostly useless. It's been great. I can use it one handed without too much difficulty. My hands aren't that big and texting had issues with letters in the bottom right but that beautiful clear screen is sooooo worth it.

    Well, this evening I met my mother at the mall to go to Macy's and I made a point of our last stop being at the AT&T there. I went specifically to check out the 1520, of course. It's a beautiful phone and they had it on display in red, but it's definitely not for me. It's HUGE!!! I can barely manage using my 920 one handedly (I was fine with it with my 810, however), so it was insane handling the 1520. Waaaaay too big for my petite hands. Gorgeous nonetheless and great for those who can handle that much phone.

    The only thing I am worried about size wise. What happens when I am forced to go back to a phone with a smaller screen. I just don't know what I'll do. I picked up my L925 today to clear some notifications and just don't think I could ever go back to a phone that small.

    SO very true - everything else seems small and hard to use now!

    Have you tried using an iPhone since using the L1520? I can't even hit the tiny little "X" in the corner to delete apps anymore on my wife's iPhone 5.

    A coworker showed me a picture on her iPhone 4 today and it really looked tiny compared to my 1520... toy-like actually in it's little pink bedazzled case.

    Since you had the 1020, do you notice a difference with performance in terms of opening apps and web browsing?

    As a side note, you'd be surprised by the fact that more girls than guys have huge phones where I live.

    Largely because they end up stuffing it in a purse rather than their pocket.

    Not surprised at all.

    Like you said, they have purses to put it in.

    I remember when I saw my tiny skinny 4'10" Asian coworker pull out her Galaxy Note. I was like, "Whoa."

    When my Wife was looking at the Samsung Mega 6.3 about 2 months ago, the AT&T sales rep said she had sold only a couple to men, the rest to women. No doubt it was due to how devices are carried.
