    What do you mean by "strange wireless charging"? The AT&T one doesn't come in 32gb?



    I was also worring that a month ago, but after a week, it felt great and I was looking my old Lumia 920 and thinking that it feels like a toy phone ... :)

    I am keeping my Lumia 1520 in my front pocket and I do not think that it is not any problem, unless your are using tight jeans ... btw, I am not using any cover for it.

    International model has wireless charging ... but ATT model has some strange wireless charging :) and only 16 Gb inside memory ...

    AT&T uses the PMA standard (as opposed to the Qi standard we're used to on our Nokias, e.g. 920), and even then still requires a case for it to work. A stupid case at that.

    It does come in 32GB now, not sure if it's in stock, but people were ordering them as of a week ago IIRC.

    Well, I don't know the technical type of wireless my 920 has, but it works great, and I'm on AT&T.

    I think I would be okay with everything until I had to put it up to my ear to talk. I used to make fun of people talking on their "phablets" in public. Not sure I want to become one of them now

    When I first saw the 1520 in the AT&T store, I too thought it may be too big. I think its relative size on store shelves scares many away. Now that I have it though, the 1020 feels too small. I went into an Apple store the other day and almost laughed at the diminutive size of the iPhone. I've yet to find a pocket my 1520 won't comfortably fit in. Regarding holding up to my head, It doesn't feel any larger than using my landline phone. To be honest, if it didn't have such a nice camera, I probably would have gone for the Note 3 or a Chinese phone like an iOcean, Oppo, or Xaiomi.

    You shouldn't really be caring as to what other people think! Once you go phablet, you never go back.

    I'm wearing my custom made Koss Porta Pro headset most of the time anyway - no need to put my precious 920 anywhere near my ear ;)

    Simple for me. Its to big, and I whant Nokia love em but no expandable battery or sd card slot then I'll have to wait.

    The 1520 has a sd slot, and hold on. Something people don't realize that with the PMA charging, you also have the ability to use a charging case to add even bigger battery power. Just need someone to develope it..

    This is true for me, I would never ever go back to smaller phone now. I now realise how much I utilise the bigger screen. It is the way forward for sure

    Unfortunately just too big to use daily. Sad because other then that I LOVED the phone. It just was annoying trying to text when walking from class, changing music, etc. I had to sort of, fiddle around with it too much =/. Maybe Ill just get the 1020? But that seems pointless at this time.

    I have had the 1520 going on 2 months and I am more than satisfied. The screen size is great and because I have big hands I can use it with one hand. I'm going to purchase a Bluetooth headset for it because its kinda silly holding this giant on the side of your face. Lol

    Actually...I think I look less douchey with a big red phone on the side of my face than a bluetooth earpiece coming out the side of my head.

    Though I do love my bluetooth stereo headset I use when I'm at the gym or on the plane.

    Agree with with you mate. I have swapped a Note 3 for this one and I couldn't be happier with it.

    Well, in that case, I guess I should probably get a black one then. You know what they say about that lol!

    Do you guys feel ridiculous pulling your 1520 out to take pictures. I'm afraid I might look/feel dorky using such a big phone.

    A guy commented on mine today when I took out to check messages, "Is that a phone or a tablet?" he said
    I just laughed and said it's a bit of both, Then walked away from the nosey bugger ;-)

    The phone is fabulous, I think the biggest problem is that AT&T is offering it with their usual "value-adds"- like, removing Data Sense, installing massive data-sucking crapware, and changing the charging. The next biggest problem is simply that not everyone wants a phablet.

    Att may have stripped it of some features but hey least you can strip it from their bloatware! Something that drove me nuts about note 2 and other android devices. Plus you can't beat the battery life on this phone!! Outstanding all around!
