    I don't own a Lumia 1520 yet. But I got my hands on it, on a couple of occasions, and I found it so handy. The big screen is so convenient. I found typing so easy on the screen even on portrait mode. Every time I look at it, my temptation to buy 1520 keeps on increasing.

    I love the phone more and more everyday. I've had almost every smartphone created. I currently have a Galaxy Note, A Nokia 920 and an Android Inspire. All very solid devices ,but cannot compare to the form , power , usability and of course the screen of the exquisite 1520

    IS ANYONE ELSE AFRAID THAT THE 1520 IS THE LAST OF ITS KIND. ( Screens will get smaller or cheaper quality)

    I ask because of the recent information from Duplex on how well the smaller less expensive Nokia 520 is doing. I fear that Microsoft of Nokia will focus on more 520 clones due to it doing so well that they will abandon high end devices like the 1520
    While maybe not the best thread to bring this up, I wouldn't worry. First off, the success of the L52X series has introduced a large fan base to the WP world. A portion of these buyers will continue to buy less expensive phones, but a group will want better devices. If they have enjoyed the WP experience, then top end devices such as the 1520 and the 1020 as well as mid-tier efforts like the 1320 and 7XX series will see sales increases.

    Next, Forbes had this handy little article out:

    Phablets To Outdo Small Tablets In 2014: Technalysis's O'Donnell - Forbes


    If you believe analysts, which I usually do not, the B.B.P. (Big **** Phones) market can not be abandoned. It is too much in demand. The engineers and designers at Nokia are doing a great job addressing this. If MS is smart and keeps these people in the fold once the purchase of Nokia hardware gets through China regulations and becomes official, then the L1520 is just the first of premium devices to roll off to market.

    I have the 1020 and still love it shockingly!!! Since I love the larger screen sizes!! But after playing with the 1520 I may buy this as a second phone/tablet for school, work and when at home I don't wanna jump on my laptop! This phone is beautiful! Sucks to hear about the WiFi issues! It seems windows in general has WiFi issues but who knows my 1020 has been great to me! My only concern with the 1520 is if god forbid I drop it, which I usually never do! I'm very careful and baby my phones but Nokia phones and their edges/corners do take a beating even from the smallest drops! But this phone is great! I'm hoping next month I can find it for a good price online off contract! Or maybe by then the 32gb att model will be out? Either way I should have bought it when I had the chance! In the end I am happy I left android and for good!!! :)

    neither, really. Many 1520s have a screen issue resulting in swipes being recognized as clicks.

    Coming from a 920, I've had my 1520 for 5 days and it is, hands down, the best mobile DEVICE, let alone phone, that I have ever owned and used. It is seriously THAT good.

    Having said that, it's really sad to see all these users returning their 1520's soon after they've bought.

    Keep in mind, the 1520 was the first device to have shipped with it the official GDR3 and Lumia Black firmware - and I can tell you now, that almost all the issues people are having are software.

    I had the GDR3 Preview on my 920 and I had a lot of the issues outlined in the "Bugs/Defects Thread" (the touch screen one and apps crashing a lot) - For all those who really like their 1520 but have experienced issues, just wait. the update is coming mid-late Jan, and by the end of January you'll have the perfect Windows Phone.

    But seriously - the screen is gorgeous, the camera is fantastic (best camera behind the 1020), its an absolute powerhouse under the hood (I do a lot of mobile gaming and Asphalt 8 and Dungeon Hunter 4 look INCREDIBLE on it), and since I have come to terms with the fact I have stubby fingers, texting is a breeze.

    The 1520, for me, kills every other phone currently on the market. That's not my fanboy coming out, that's the truth. It is seriously a perfect device (after the software update).

    I think, people who are complaining about the size, should know that, this year 6 inch will be standard for most of the phablets

    Really only one issue that pushes my buttons. Why no built in wireless charging?!!! I would really like 15 minutes of rant time with Nokia management over that one.

    Because AT&T is evil, and neutered the device by forcing Nokia to remove built in wireless charging. That's because Nokia uses Qi Wireless Charging, meanwhile, AT&T is allied with a different style of wireless charging. And thus, they made US buyers of the 1520 suffer.

    same here buddy, I sold my Sony ZL which was a piece of crap in front of the 1520. I was always having issues receiving messages and pictures. Now with the 1520 I don't have these issues anymore, text messages works faster than ever and picture mms always work. Happy than ever.

    I like mine, but HATE what AT&T did to it. The 16GB is crippling (greatly limits the number of apps you can install), and after using a 920 with Qi for a year, I am really missing the wireless charging.If AT&T would just get the f##$@ out of the way and let Nokia do their thing, this would have been a fantastic phone.The only other comment I have is that the 1520's camera seems just like the 920's in terms of performance and quality. That is not really a criticism, but there is a BIG gap between the 1520 camera performance and that of the 1020. I was hoping they would be more similar than they are....

    I agree about the 16gb, but I think Nokia should shoulder a bit of criticism at this point. Where is the Qi charging shell? I'm guessing that is just getting blown off...

    I quite agreed with you, they supposed did it to drop the price and make it cheaper for contract based customers. Which they can get the phone as low as $49.99 down with two years of contract. Now, I don't understand why they didn't keep two versions of the phone, the one with 16GB without the Qi wireless charger and keep another one more expensive with 32GB with the Qi integrated, same as the international version. It could have worked for people who willing to pay more. But AT&T always wants to screw the Americans, giving us the most cheap *** version.
