    You need to use one to decide. The galaxy note series still feels like a phone to me. The 1520 has crossed some size threshold and feels to me like a small tablet that happens to be able to make phone calls.

    Is that what you want? Its a two handed device only, and it may not easily fit in some pockets.

    If that IS what you want, you'll love it. I love mine. I just recognize that the size could very well be an issue for some. The size makes it very much a niche product only.

    If you don't want something that large, just wait, there will be a 5in version soon enough.
    Thanks for your input! I do hope a global 929 variant comes, especially to AT&T. :)

    I find the 1520 easily pocketable, even in jeans (im not cool enough for the skinny variety tho ;) ) and I can do something's one handed. My hands are not that big either

    i say get it now
    because the new phones will be high prices and they are not that new..
    u have everything in Lumia 1520, even the greatest battery..
    i think people buy new phones for the competitions..
    when one has good phone and the other one have best phone, so he gets jealous or something.. so he buys new phone
    i was that guy.. but this year i'm buying the last phone for 4-3 years, not once a year..
    ha my english is fine so i hope u understood

    Honestly I don't foresee any fantastic innovation within the next 6 months that will render this phone obsolete. The 805 brings a moderate GPU upgrade, although it is likely to make little difference in day-to-day usage. Nobody will make games for a GPU in <1% of phones so unless you are a fairly extreme mobile gamer that absolutely must have the best of the best, I say go for it now!

    Do you think nothing good will be announced at MWC?
    I'm just not familiar with MWC, to be honest. The poll said Build so I mentioned Build. =P

    There won't be new announcements at Build, but there will be announcements at WMC which is end of February. Probably Asha 400 (Normady) and some Lumias, the current 5-9xx line is quite outdated in terms of specs/price ratio, even the Moto G has better hardware now. That said, we have no idea when any of the new Lumias might even be out, or which ones will be out.

    Question is really what devices are even real, we have the Lumia 1820 with truly insane specs, Lumia ???? a 1520 but in the size of 920 with quite affordable specs, 625/630, all so questionable names, especially the 1820, a 5" device but higher number than the 1520? Thing is if they really go with x20, they will not be real WP8.1 Phones, while the x30 might already lack the Hardware buttons, especially on the 630 it would save additional costs, also with the lack of hardware buttons it would let Microsoft implement "swipe to show buttons" like on Windows 8, which would give Apps more space and stop "nooo damn, i didn't want to activate the search or go back home". I can't be the only one who wants that a swipe able Bar on the bottom instead of fixed **** (at least as option please), there is nothing more annoying then capactivie buttons that are always on, soo annoying.

    All this, and a bag of chips.
    Not buying any of the L1820 rumors or whatever is out there. Just seems unreal to take a huge leap like those specs suggest. I love me some MS products, but reality is as reality does, and the MS reality is working to get things right, not fast. I am not expecting space age Windows Phones capabilities simply because they have caught up to the fancy jets on the L1520 and the L929.


    Would not miss capacitive buttons at all since I have seen Androids without them. Would also give more area to screen size without forcing an increase to physical size. And that whole argument that HTC, Samsung, Sony, and other Android handset makers would be able to port WP to existing top end hardware would be great. Sign me up.

    Get it.
    Ive had it for two weeks now and it still gets better every day.

    Btw, I have no touch issue so its not on all phones. Could have been a just on early batches.

    I would wait...unless the camera and video performances of the camera have gotten better which some users were complaining about. MWC is around the corner and the next flagship should be here sometime in the next 6 months.

    Got my 32gb yesterday and couldn't be happier! Not sure how long you plan on holding out, by the route the 929 is going you maybe waiting awhile....worst case you get the 1520, take care of it, something else comes out sell it and get what you want...but I couldn't be happier....i don't see the point of waiting and waiting
