    I have adjusted to using the phone but I still am not 100% sure about the Incipio charging case. I am not used to having a case on my phone and although the case makes the phone easier to hold it is pretty bulky. I have not had the phone very long but so far it is exceeding my expectations.

    I always wanted a larger screen (I also have a 920 & HTC Titan) and got used to it immediately, (but that is not to say that everything has been optimised to the new resolution and screen size) but for me there is no going back. The size comments about this phone remind me of the reviewe when I bought a HTC HD2 exactly same comments were made about the size of the phone, these comments seem dumb now even though they were made by the tech pundits of the time.

    I sold my AT&T black 1520 and purchased an unlocked yellow 32gb version. Unfortunately my new 1520 won't be here until Thursday, and I've already shipped my old 1520 off, so I'm using my backup 8x in the interim. Wow. I'll never be able to go back to a smaller screen again.

    Have using this now for two weeks period and i feel that phones have always been this size. I feel quite comfortable with it now to use and it actually looks like my phone is shrinking.

    This fast you adapt to size really. Same think happens when you buy your first big screen TV and you are wowed how big it looks. After a while you feel that you should have bought bigger model.

    6" is quite upper limit, but could be 6,2" if whole phone could be kept in the same size like it is now. Don't be afraid to go this phone since you adapt to it eventually.

    So you're saying that in 2 weeks you've completely forgotten that all phones aren't 6 inches??

    I went from a HD2 to a Titan and now to this. At each step I've been worried that it might be too big but each time I look back I can't imagine how I coped with something that small.

    Although I don't think I'll be going any bigger...

    I completely agree. This is as big as a phone needs to be.

    I'm definitely still not fully adjusted. I've been using the 920 for a full year prior to the 1520 and I got so used to doing everything one-handed that I'm still trying to do the same with the 1520. I love everything about the 1520 and the size is fantastic, but I just can not break the habit of thinking I can do everything like I did with the 920.

    I'm sure I'll fully adjust, but it just might take a little longer than I expected.

    More so than I thought, actually. I am using both, the 920 and the 1520 and whenever I hold the 920 in my hands now, it feels a bit tiny. I got so used to few full websites on the 1520 that the mobile versions on the 920 feel like I am missing something. The 1520 definitely is the phone for me. I held an iPhone 4 from my friend yesterday and I frankly cannot imagine how one could do anything on a screen that small.

    I hear you, my wife and daughter have iPhone 5S's and those things seem tiny compared to my 1520. They're like little baby phones.

    I keep pulling my old lumia 800 out of the cupboard and thinking "how did I ever manage with such a tiny phone....!!"

    Perfectly well adjusted as the last device I used prior to this was actually larger. I came from the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and loved it. However, if I did have to have one gripe about this phone in regards to it's general size or shape, it would be the corners. I'm pretty sure that I'm bruising my palms after long periods of use.

    The height of the iPhone 4s screen is less than the width of the Lumia 1520 screen. One could fit 2.7 iPhone 4 screens in the space of the 1520 screen -- and the 1520 would still have more pixels than those iPhones. That's amazing.

    Coming from someone who used to make fun of people who used to use the original Samsung Note for it's sheer size, I have to say that I can never go back to using a smaller screen phone. Have gotten completely adjusted to the size of the 1520 in just a couple of days.

    I've since used a couple of smaller devices as I work in the industry. That being said, all of the smaller display bearing units seem tiny due to my last couple of daily drivers. This is evident to me when I try to type on the smaller screens now and just fail about.

    I was the same way. Even made fun of the word "phablet" and now I find myself using the term quite often.

    Exact same for me. Used 920 with one hand the majority of the time. Find myself having to migrate my important tiles(email, phone, text, etc) that I hit more often to the bottom right of the screen so I don't have to move my hand as much. Moved my Weather, Calendar, other less hit tiles to the top of the screen. Changed my pass code to be numbers generally found on the right side of screen(1, 4 and 7 are out lol). Going better since. I am a week in and I am about 90% sure I will keep it. It's an awesome phone but it does take some getting used to.

    Even without getting my hands on it, I can say, that anyone who, once get used to Lumia 1520, will never, ever turn back to smaller devices.

    I'm on the same boat as you. From what I've heard, the 1520 should launch this month itself in India. Will have a look at a store and then decide. I'm hoping it's reasonably priced!

    If you're going to hold on till March/April, you might as well see what phones Nokia/MS will launch with WP 8.1.
    I did hold myself back, simply because my 820 is running perfectly fine and I don't have any issue apart from the tiny 4.3" screen size. I am happy that I waited and would now get the 930 in June/July. I do hope that there is some exchange scheme available for my 820. If not, I will rather hold onto this phone as it is simply great. I simply can not go to any other phone manufacturer having experienced so many Nokia phones first-hand. All of them have been fantastic in terms of price and the period of their respective launch.

    I bought 1520 just because I need high end phone WITH SD card onboard! Now, when Nokia released 930, I know that I did right decision to buy 1520. But I can admit it is a little big :) Same form with same HW spec but in 5'' will be uber phone! I do not like design of 930, 1520 looks much better on my opinion.

    I'm using note 2 right now and have a red 1520 on order.
    I finally got to hold a 1520 at the att store and I love size. Not much bigger than my note 2.
    Funny thing is, I owned the Note 2 at one time, and sold it because I thought it was too big. I don't have that feeling with the 1520.

    Traded by Note 2 in 2 weeks ago..it's not that much bigger...but...a whole lot better..

    The folks wanting one..but hesitant because of its size..I'll wager in a week..you won't be self conscious of it at all...but will not want to use a smaller screen size ever again..

    This phone is awesome..plain and simple..no screen lag...no wake locks..battery life is great..Im glad I switched
