    Hi Guys,

    I'm not sure if this is the right thread to ask this, but, how is Nokia Here Maps/Drive here in the Phils using your L1520(or any Lumia)?
    Is it as good as Waze or atleast usable here and it is updated in urban areas?

    TIA :)
    They're different. Waze has real-time traffic info while Here Drive does not. POI support is better in Waze, as it has multiple sources.

    Hi Guys!

    frustrated future owner here. daming problema eh :p

    1. i went to SM North a while ago and the 'normal price' is now around 39K, and 36K for cash.... Last January, this is 36K, and 30K for cash. what happened?!
    2. i am a bit frustrated with kimstore's L1520 price of Php 22,920... some of their pics show '16GB' but everytime i text them, they say it is 32GB. is this a steal or might be really 16GB version?
    3. has any Lumia users in here have bought their phones from kimstore? experience?
    4. how to get prepaid nano sim? bili lang sa globe?
    5. san may casing neto?

    i am planning to use this only in 2G network sa globe. why? because i have a fast DSL connection at home and ayoko na gumastos for something i rarely use on the road. i just want a big 4ss-phone with a big-battery. i'll use this at home kung tamad magbukas ng laptop just to read articles in the internet. so i am expecting this to be at least 3-days before charging.

    buti pa si GF ko, nabilhan ko na ng L520. nakuntento na sa performance. ako, nokia E6 pa rin :D indestructible. ilang beses ko na binalibag, ayaw masira

    below are my price frustrations (Nokia - SM North price vs. Kimstore-steal price). so far, i think L1020 is a real steal. though i am waiting for the L930 this april. kaya lang habol ko talaga yung battery life (L1520 and L1320) and at least pureview cam (L920, not considering L925 kasi 16GB lang)

    L920 = 17k vs 13.9k
    L1020 = normal price of 36k vs 23.4k
    L1320 = 18k vs 15.4k
    L1520 = 33k vs 22.9k (na hindi malaman kung 16gb talaga or 32gb)

    :)

    @paqpaqpaq that's kind of weird pricing scheme for the Nokia Stores. I don't trust online sellers in PH as most the units are from black market.
    You can only purchase L1520 cases from online stores as of this moment. I have purchased two from eBay, a leather case and a TPU case by Amzer.

    Allies,

    Could you take a close up pic of the amzer on the phone particularly the edge where the tpu meets or almost meets the screen? I ordered that and am waiting for delivery but I just want to see how it actually looks in that area.

    Hope this helps? I don't have a spare camera except wife's L720.

    I am testing SMART 4G/LTE connection today here at our office. Consistently connected on a 3-4 bar 4G which let me donwload a 200mb+ youtube movie in less than 20mins.

    Thanks man. I like the cut better as it's a bit larger than Tudia. Seems like the case won't touch my screen. Can't wait for my order.

    Noticed the red stripe in the left side? They say the international version is a bit thicker so I think that is the reason why it gives more gap and surely wouldn't touch the screen. Since you have a black unit it will be unnoticible.

    Yep saw that. I wouldn't really mind even if let's say mine is of a different color. I really just want it to not touch the screen. Hehehe.

    are you sure it's the 32GB variant?.. kimstore only sells the 16GB variant that's why it has a way lower price tag..

    Kimstore doesn't sell AT&T version 1520 so you can be sure it's the 32gb variant.

    i'm talking about the16GB variant (unlocked) of the device being sold at other markets such as India.. and the listing over at Kimstore also says that they have the 16GB variant.. that's why i'm asking if he's sure he has the 32GB one...

    There's an unlocked 16gb available? If I remember it correctly only the RM-940 has the 16gb variant which is exclusive to at&t. Everything else including the non lte version is 32gb. Do you have a link to an article saying something about the 16gb unlocked variant? That's interesting

    not sure as well but i've seen articles in the past saying there'll be a 16gb RM-937 in some markets.. plus the Kimstore listing clearly says 16GB that's why i'm asking if he's sure coz i also plan on getting mine there.. will keep you updated once i get a response from Kimstore..

    Hey man, I'm interested when you purchased from ebay if you had any problem with customs taxes. I've heard nightmare stories.

    probably just a typo on their part. you know these grey market stores. they try as much to get traffic to be noticed. hehehe. why don't you just get from the official retailer? it may be higher in price but you get less hassle if at all anything happens to your device. sorta like paying for some peace of mind. :)

    ebay is cool. i'm a regular buyer from the site for accessories. normally it's just an additional 50 pesos if the postman sends you a notice for a delivery. other times they bring it directly to your home. can't really determine what's their basis since it's very inconsistent. most of the time single purchases would be brought directly to my place free of charge while multiple purchases in a single package needs to be picked up. sometimes it's the opposite. don't go with couriers though. they will charge again for custom fees. regular post is good. 2-3 weeks waiting.

    kung alangan ka sa Kimstore, sa HotGadgets ka na lang bumili. 25k na lang yata ang 1520 doon. Doon ako nakabili ng 1520 tsaka marami na rin akong nabiling ibang gadets doon.
