    Got my Nokia Lumia 1520 last Tuesday and I have to say this phone has blown me away! The screen is incredible the speed of it is even better. A really impressive piece of kit put together by Nokia. This is the first phone for a long time where I have actually thought that I could live with this phone for two years!

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

    I agree with each of you. I cant put it down. For the life of me I cant understand why this phone isn't winning people over. I still have an Android, Samsung Galaxy Note 2( not a bad device at all )but the WP8 experience combined with the 1520 size, speed and form factor is like Wow . I will never use a smaller screen

    Microsoft needs help in the AT&T store to really push the phone, I think. I imagine that only if you go in with the determination to buy a Windows Phone will the representatives suggest that you buy one. Does that sound like correct assumption?

    I've had all the notes and I was a bit disappointed that the 3 wasn't that much of a steep forward from the 2 but I did have an S4 in between them. I found all the hand gesturing and stuff interesting for the first week or two of ownership of the S4 but the S pen was handy on the notes.

    exactly that. No matter what store you go into they suggest an iphone or an android phone. I am a windows phone fan til the end. Incredible

    I too got one just a few days ago as my employer recently started offering them as an option for folk who are on-call. I chose the red 1520 more on a whim than anything else. My personal phone's contract is up soon and I was just curious to see if I could stand carrying around a phone that size. I've been an Android fan for about 4 years now and my intent was to use it as a testing ground for something the size of a G-Note 3 which I was considering but I've been really surprised by how much I find myself enjoying this phone. So far I'm impressed by the:

    Screen - just awesome/gorgeous/beautiful/insert-more-praise-here
    Sound - external speaker is quite nice
    Camera - very good
    Speed - this thing is frickin' fast and lag-free.

    The only things now that make me miss my Android at all are:

    App selection still a bit thin, although not as bad as I'd first feared.
    I miss a swype-style keyboard because I just type several times faster that way
    Google Play Music - mainly because that's where all my stuff is and I haven't yet explored the options over in this ecosystem, could be something that would satisfy me.

    Overall a great experience so far!. Makes me want to root for Nokia's success. (EDIT: I do want to add that I wish that Nokia would stop with the one-carrier-only exclusives as I'd never be on AT&T if it were my personal phone...seems a shame that they are limiting a very nice model phone this way).

    Yeah, you're right. I also had the Note 2 previously and gave it to my wife after buying the Note 3. To be honest, it's a great phone and as you said, after awhile you feel like you want something else. I had it for about 3 months and I was already getting a bit bored with it. I do miss some of the apps I had i.e. for my personal banking, free TV from my ISP and few few other more, but overall, I reckon the Lumia 1520 was a better choice for me.

    I know that its a strong statement, but I think that this is the best Windows Phone based Nokia to date.

    Xbox music is the Microsoft (and pre-dates it) equivalent to google play music

    Even thought the 1520 is a great device I prefer more the 925 I like the design and would love to see Nokia or Microsoft come up with a follow up.

    I have a yellow one coming on Friday, hope I feel the same way you do. I'll admit I'm a little nervous about the size and camera quality coming from a 1020

    Swype is my number one gripe as well. Also dictation worked really well for me on my Nexus 4. On the app side I want Vonage extensions, other than that I am completely satisfied with WP!

    This phone is very good, I found several apps that are very good that I find no reason to go back to android or ios. Big screen, big battery, and awesome organized UI is awesome.

    My Lumia 920 fits perfectly in the side pocket of my jeans. The top-right corner JUUUUST ticks out. The 1520 might be too wide to fit in that pocket, and I know that it would be awkward to use with one hand.

    If you're a 2-handed user, it's probably great. If you prefer to be able to one-hand your device and have it not take up too much space, the 920 is about the line--for me, at least.

    925 is a good size phone as well. I love my 810 and HTC 8X. I sold my 920 and 925. I am dying to get an unlocked 1320 RM-995 but can't seem to find it anywhere.

    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.

    I have a 920 that I've had since it launched. Love the phone, and the app selection has improved a great deal since last year. Now, I'm also considering grabbing a 1520 to bump up on the screen size a little, but I too am worried that it may be a little too big. I keep my phone in my front pocket, and it may look a little weird in my slacks at work. My question right now though, is does the 1520 have wireless charging? That's one thing I love about my 920.

    I've seen a few people mention Swype. That would be great if they also reduced the size of the keyboard, which they need to do anyway.

    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 ...
