    I am! Now I can't imagine down sizing at this point. This phone is comfortable in hand and in my pocket. I'm just concerned that with MS buying Nokia that we may not get new large format phones as good as this on WP.

    I agree. It's the perfect sized device for me. Been waiting a long time for it.

    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.

    I saw a 920 and thought the screen was too tiny now I'm used to the 1520. It was a bit awkward initially, but I got this case: Amazon.com: Exact Tank Series Tough Rugged Dual Layer Protection Case Cover with Build in Stand for Nokia Lumia 1520 Black: Cell Phones & Accessories The case is a bit bulky with the 2nd armor piece on but the grips on the side make it so much better to hold and it's cheap too. I just use the TPU part and take off the armor and it feels great holding it. It reminds me of the laces on a football when in my hand

    Yeah I am definitely more adjusted than I was two weeks ago.

    This phone is growing on me slowly.

    Yes, now I think every other phone has such a small screen. Love this thing! I thought it was going to be too big, but I'm currently in love.

    Yes. While some tasks are still a challenge for one handed completion, I've found I've adjusted to most quite easily. Other phones do feel smaller to me now, as well. My L920 still feels nice, but I feel like my hand completely swallows my wife's iPhone 5 whole when I hold it.

    Yes! It feels natural now. The size doesn't seem so big anymore. My girlfriend has an iphone4. The other day she asked me to grab it for her and I held it with two fingers from top to bottom lol. Feels like a toy. Nothing compares to the L1520. Its the size you'll be happy you have, even when you think you don't need it. Its the most beautiful phone imo. Build quality and looks are stunning. I hope the future of Lumias is promising with whatever MS plans to do, if not then I'll hold on to this piece of perfection for as long as time will let me. ;)

    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.

    Love the phone, coming from a iPhone 5 but can be large in the pocket. We also need a split keyboard in landscape mode like the surfaces.

    Yes. I love this phone! Took me a couple days to adjust to it and now that I have I'm not having a problem handling it. The only down side is it won't fit in my cup holder like my previous phones did.

    Now I'm trying to decide if I want to call in sick and head to my Microsoft store try to get the Dell Venue 8 Pro for $99 on Monday. It's screen is only 2 inches larger but it does run windows 8.1.

    I've had mine less than 24 hrs and I'm no where near adjusted to it! This thing is HUGE. I've been using a LG G2 which is not a small phone but this 1520 is much larger and heavier. I'm sure I'll be fully adjusted in a week or two though....

    Yes! Fully adjusted in less than an hour. Definitely the phone I was thinking of for the last couple of years. The unexpected downside (as has been said many times over) everything smaller is completely unsatisfactory at this point. The usability on this as a mobile device is phenomenal. Absolutely love it!!

    Out the box I was "oh, maybe its a little too big" but after a few hours its fine, its so easy to use and just mess about on or work, yeah its not a slip into any pocket phone but the plus sides outweigh that for me.

    Yup! 100% and I love it! Doubt I'll ever go back to anything smaller.

    This is a really useful thread. I am thinking of buying this phone in January (hopefully it will be available in India by that time), but my only concern was the size if it is too big. I have got a 820, but I already find it tiny. I feel ideal size for me would be 5" but 929 is not yet launched globally, I wonder if I will hold myself back by March/April for it to arrive in India. If 1520 does not really feel too big I will go for it straight away.

    Yeah, I hear ya on the cup holder thing. My personal car actually has a split holder so it fits but, I had to buy a cupholder mount for my work vehicle. I'd like a 8.1 tablet for $99 but, I can't camp out for it with my 1 year old daughter. lol

    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'm probably over-adjusted in that I'll never be able to go to a "normal" sized screen again...
