    It's still true...especially for iOS...Instagram still doesn't work on an iPad without turning it into portrait mode and viewing the iPhone version of the app.

    I would have preferred a higher resolution on the 1520 personally.

    Got mine yesterday, and the only thing I don't like is how the tiles cannot be stretched to cover the entire length of the screen, like we were able to do in other (albeit smaller) lumia phones.

    But its not really a fail, jut a minor annoyance.

    I wanted a tablet, so I bought one. I wanted a phone so I bought one, and I wanted a Laptop so I bought one. Each has it's job to do.

    1) Tablet
    Acts like a computer when I am away from home in a hotel or something like that.

    2) Phone
    Acts like a phone when I need to receive and make calls, and text, also act similar to a computer when I am on the move between home and hotel

    3) Laptop
    It is a computer that isn't tied down to a desk...

    All 3 can print to my printer, all three can watch movies, surf the web, get my email. All three have similar OS's (Windows 8) So I am familiar with all three. Screen sizes go from 6", 10.2" and 17.3" so all large screens. I like the 1520, it feels better in my hands than the Note 2 ever did. I sold it because it felt too big.

    Based on this 3-point detention, 1520 is 1+ 2 = Phone + Tablet = Phablet.

    Phablet is a very new concept. It's still under development/evolution, but at the end it's meant to act as a full blown Phone AND a full blown Tablet. at the same time.

    But if I may speculate about trends and future, since 1 + 2 is equal to 3, so it must be equal to a Laptop too, at least based on this 3-point detention. The hardware of this little monster (a powerful SoC and large high-res screen) is capable of replacing the Laptop anytime, but the software (both Operative System and Apps) needs to evolve and provide that little extra that can make it functions as a Laptop. The potential/promise of Laptop-replacement is there, I would speculate.

    Almost all big players and manufacturers have committed to developing Phablets. New models with more powerful SoCs and even higher resolution screens is popping up everywhere. This is speeding up the development of Operative System and APPs to a new level, worthy of a Phablets.

    I agree with the OP, the 1520 has nothing more than bigger tiles and better camera. One would expect a phablet to have a stylus and some level of true multitasking. Running two apps side by side like in Windows 8 would have been so awesome.

    @ HaibaneReki

    The new WP sdk supports other tilesizes.
    If that means extra wide.....???
    Shortly we will al know what MS has hidden in the bag.

    Looking at the list of new features in WP 8.1, the 1520 will become an even more amazing device.

    I decided to keep my 1520, put it on my AT&T share plan for $15/mo and using the time to learn more and more.
    The more I learn, the more I like it. Now, I just have to get over the SIZE thing. :)

    wel how many phablets does come with a stylus, i know samsung does ,but who else?
    So no one expects a stylus.
    The tech Samsung is using is completely differant, its not just the stylus but its also the screen.
    Its a Phone with a big screen, not a fulgrown Tabled

    I don't think it is a big fail et all. 1520 is simply awesome and great feel in hand. Love the way it is designed , streamlined.

    About new features you mentioned - it is always good to have them but they are not deal breakers for me.

    About pushing windows 8 on phone - we are at least 2-3 years away from it as it involves solving battery issues , overall dimensions of a phone etc.

    for record - Lumia 1520 is not just an awesome phone - it is mind blowing :)
    what part of it is mind blowing when you got all these features introduced on previous lumia phones ?? except for the large display ofc

    It's funny - this sounds so much like the 'Metro / Desktop' (WP / W8) discussion when it comes to hybrid PCs. Not enough desktop on this one, not enough Metro on that one. Too much tablet-centric here, too much clamshell there. *shrug*

    I hear what you're saying about what could be, but I doubt you thought you'd find a forked WP8 OS on this phone when you bought it. There was nothing in any review that would suggest that. And since you love Lumias you got exactly what you knew you'd get.

    For me, the phone is excellent. But then, I look at it as a phone (since that's why I bought it) and not a tablet. Perhaps you should look at some of the W8 8" tablets and carry a smaller phone?
    you misunderstood me , I don't own alumia 1520, I own a 920 which is perfect for me , and I do have a W8 tablet, but I was just wondering about how awesome it would've been if Microsoft designed something spectacular to a hardware as good as 1520

    There is some valid points here, but 1520 is a kind of "pioneer" and driving the development of Operative System and Apps, in many aspects.

    WP has just added 1920 x 1200 support, but they didn't do much else to take advantage of this huge real state. The WP development team seams to have been taken by surprise, but the real evolution will come when App-developers start taking advantage of this new big and high-resolution screens. It's just a matter of time, soon both WP and Apps will be adjusted/redesigned for high-res screens, and of course the future holds 2k and even 4k screens.

    The same is true about the new powerful Snapdragon 800 SoC. It has enough juice to run a full blown Windows 8.1, but the WP development team seams to be hanging behind, again. The WP 9.0 will probably use one unified Operative System for Phone, Tablet and Desktop. But In case, it couldn't be relisted without these kind of powerful SoCs.

    The hardware specification of 1520 is too good for it's time actually, but it's driving the development of Operative System and Apps to catch up. All technology pioneers face similar challenges for a period of times..
    I really like what you said but that's the same scenario again and again and nothing seem to change as years pass by :s

    I'd just like to point out that other than the Galaxy Note series, there really aren't any phablets with functionality that differs from related phones.
    yeah because I was referring to the galaxy note series , im sure Microsoft can come up with something better

    This thread is a fail. You bought a phone and expected a tablet. Next you'll be buying a 2520 and wondering why it isn't a phone.

    As for "nothing new other than an oversized 920," it has
    - Extra column of buttons
    - 1080p for the first time
    - Some apps taking advantage of extra space, but obviously not all
    - Nokia Black which brought in a lot of it's own new features:
    -- Glance screen
    -- individual app shutdown (big red x)
    -- Grouping (you know, like on windows 8)
    -- Beamer
    OMG can you and everyone else calm their tits ?!
    I didn't buy the friggin phablet, I own a 920 and its perfect. And im sorry but even the list you just typed is a big fail. I have all of these features on my 920 except for 1080p and the 3 columns and they are deal breaking if you ask anyone. all the new lumias will have them

    seriously ? you left the whole argument and commented on that ?? you know what I mean, I'm addressing Microsoft because they didn't add extra features and I'm addressing Nokia because they didn't include windows 8 and since Microsoft acquired Nokia, you're lovely line is invalid because I can address both of them as one
    thank you.

    its a phone with a big screen, exactly ! you might as well use that for your advantage and throw in a stylus or an exclusive software to help make use of all of the potential of the 1520 under the hood
