    I would say its safe to say yes, only thing is carrier approval for the updates. The camera issues and touch screen can be addressed in a firmware update.

    Ive had my phone for about 2.5 weeks and I can say I thoroughly enjoy it.

    This is my work phone so I use it for all of my work related tasks. Seeing an excel file or Visio document on a 6in screen is just awesome. The phone has great battery life and all the great features of WP8. It fits in my pocket fine with or without my Nillkin case.

    I haven't experienced the touch issues everyone that have posted it. I did drop the sensitivity down to normal an find it just fine for my use.

    The only downside is I tend to have to use 2 hands for somethings but that isn't a big deal. It kind of comes with the territory with a 6in screen phone.

    I had a Lumia 900 before and I love the speech text and how much its improved going from a Lumia 900 to the 1520. I love now how its enabled for emails and not just SMS. My car doesn't have Bluetooth integration so I have enabled the assist while connected to the AUX port and it makes it easy to respond to incoming texts without using my hands.

    The only thing I don't like is GIF animation isn't supported in SMS but that is in no way a deal breaker.

    Mine was a 16GB version and Im fine with that. I have the SD card expansion if I need it and my music is all streamed through Xbox Music. Again not a deal breaker in my case.
    Same token is about the Qi charging. Ive seen some people say that is a deal breaker to buy the phone but that's kind of short sighted if you ask me. Having to plug my phone in to charge hasn't swayed my descision in any way.

    Funny thing is I have so gotten used to the size. My wife's Lumia 920 feels tiny in my hands and a Apple iPhone 5 feels even smaller.

    I love and enjoy my Lumia 1520.

    I agree with everything you said. I also use mine for work. I've had it almost one month. Doing spreadsheets is a breeze. Pulling up blueprints is much easier. All the Iphone people on the jobsites(99% of the workers) are always taken back by the size. Once I watch a video, show them a webpage, or blueprints on my phone, they turn into the minions from Despicable Me and stand staring going Ooohhh. This phone is awesome. I have the restart problem and the signal problem as well but I used the hell out of this phone. I picked up my 920 yesterday, I had to squint, lol, to read the screen.

    Great :) ... then just open wi-fi when you need it and then turn it off ... the cellular data will be a main data source now :) ... just like I did, a year ago with my Lumia 920 :)

    You could check also that you have all Nokia system apps updated ... you can use Sysapp Pusher for that, there is "System" apps page and check them one by one ...

    I love it when I use it. Carrying it is more of a burden than my previous nexus 5. But that's a fair trade, I knew the price of admission. It's a small tablet that happens to be able to make calls, and that you can generally find some pocket to fit (or sort of fit) it in. If you're prepared to accept that, it's a great device.
