    Man...Nokia 1820 with Snapdragon 805 would be awesome. BUT, too early for that. SD805 will be launching mid-year...not so soon.

    Either way, I hope my Lumia 1320 doesn't fall down to the order so soon. :(

    Wrong. Unstoppable was absolutely correct. On its own, that has no direct influence on performance.

    At some point, if you let free storage space drop to very low levels (don't have the number on hand) WP will start to be somewhat more aggressive in clearing out temporary files. This won't happen often, but if you are using the device when it does, then you likely will notice a delay (some might say lag... depends on what you were doing). If that is what you meant, okay, but that is not the permanent and constant performance degradation you make it sound like. It is also easy to fix...

    Okay maybe not slow down but with 16gb models I'll only be left with about 4gb of memory and that's data that ms unfortunately won't allow to be moved onto an SD card. So this deal with SD card support on ms is useless if all you can store on them is music....for photos you have SkyDrive !

    I went to the AT&T store yesterday, and had a lot of time with the 1520. It has a wonderful display and is very fluid. But I just couldn't get used to the size, and I felt the novelty would wear off. It also wouldn't fit in my pocket well, so I decided against it. If there is a global variant for the 929, and comes to AT&T, I'll get that, as 5 inches, heck even 5.3 inches, is better than 6 inches.

    I appreciate all of your comments and helping me with this decision. For those with 1520's and love it, I'm glad you do. It is a wonderful device. If you can get used to the 6 inches and begin to love it, then that is perfect for you.
