    I'm looking to buy a new phone, and I'm deciding between the 1020 (available now in Canada) or the 1520 (wait for future release). For those using the 1520 and have used the 1020 and 920, is there a noticeable difference for:

    - Speed of opening and closing applications
    - Time it takes to load games
    - Web browsing page load times

    The 1020 is a better size and I like the camera, but the Snapdragon 800 > S4... let me know your thoughts, thanks.

    In reference to the 1520.. Coming from a 920 I don't notice a huge difference when it comes to the above... Mainly because wp8 is already highly optimized to run on lesser hardware.. This is something I think we'll notice more once the WP 8.1 update is released. I can tell you that the screen is amazing in 1080p.. And there is a slight boost in performance which you will appreciate, but nothing close to what you might be expecting.

    I came from a 920, and I felt the speed difference, the alls open fast on the 920 but the 1520 is quite a bit faster, and love the extra horsepower in the hardware.

    I have a 920, 1020, and 1520, and I can tell a difference between all three of them. The 1520 is definitely the better device and does everything from snapping pictures to opening and loading webpages and apps faster. It's not as noticeable from the 1020 to the 1520 but there is still a difference, and if the size is OK with you, then the 1520 is the more future-proof phone.
