    I would recommend taking a look at the 1520 in store to see if you like the size of a 6 inch for a mobile device.

    I cant as a i live in the UK and the only place that sells it is amazon. How dose the 1520 compare to the 1320 as i can get the 1320 on contract but the 1520 i will need buy on sim free.

    I dont know sadly because I too live in the UK and waiting to go try one out however it the best Window Phone has a powerful SoC so there no issue with performance and gaming will be great. It got a 1080p display which from the reviews I read is outstanding.

    Will be great for multimedia use and internet browsing I would suggest going for the 1520 over the 1320 unless money an issue.

    Here an review from WPC:

    1520, for better battery (in use, not by size), for bigger internal memory (8 Gb vs. 32 Gb), smoother (better cpu + chipset), better camera with OIS ... well, also more RAM, but I think that it is mainly because of higher resolution of 1520, so it does not really matter ... and better front camera, if it matters at all ...

    1320, if you have a tight budget ...

    By the way, 1520 has great speakers, but I can not compare to speakers of 1320 ...

    That was exactly my worry too over 2 months ago, but after using it for few days, I was really happy that I bought it ...

    If you really want it for internet browsing and watching videos, then it is a way to go - just believe me :)

    Phablets can be a bit silly, but if you like the s4, realistically, its not too much bigger to be honest. Failing that, if you want something s4 comparable, give it a month or two, Nokia are releasing the icon worldwide as the 929...

    I had the 1020, LG G2, and other 5" phones along back in the day the note 1 and 2.....i was really hesitant. I went to the store a few times and kept saying too big! But finally pulled the trigger! Honestly with how thin it is! Its an amazing phone and as a phone junkie I see myself keeping this for a long time!! After not even 6 hours the size became normal. My brother has an iPhone 5 and thought it was too big and obnoxious! Now he is about to buy it!!! I say go for it!

    YOU will feel just normal - I think that it is just a comment of people who never used it ...

    No, it is not true ... try Metrotube or Mytube, both are great ones .... only Microsoft Youtube app sucks, but thanks for Google :)

    By the way, I was looking ice hockey by Lumia 1520 during last week and it looks great, but well, I prefer my 46" TV at home :)

    Take a look at a phone that 6 inches like the note 2/3, htc one max or z ultra and see if you would like that to have a feel to that size.

    Hi there,

    You can view the 1520 in O2 stores. Purchased one myself from CPW and have had it for a few days now

    Additionally and in response to the OP I would say that having had the phone for just under a week it is AMAZING. My last phone was a Note 1 and the screen real estate is larger, but the phone feels lighter than the note to me. In regards to the OS it is quick and responsive, with recommended apps like MyTube and Readit bring my phone to life. The camera is fantastic, but beware if you are using skydrive to upload your picutres as you need to make sure you change the upload quality to 'best'. For a short while I thought the picture quality was terrible until I figured this out!

    Have fun

    My fiancee has smaller than normal hands (not by much, but a little) and she loves the 1520.

    I purchased mine the day it launched. She thought it was huge, until she started playing Fruit Ninja.

    She fell in love with the big screen almost immediately, even for typing and such.

    I went to the 02 store to buy the phone but I am shocked with the contract prices they were offering me it was more than a note 3. I guess i will need to buy it sim free on amazon.

    funny you mention this....my mom, 70 yrs old used it a few nights ago and had no issues and I watched to see how she looked and honestly it looked fine! This was a big concern of mine too prior to buying it but its not a big deal at all! I have not had one person even do a double take in public.

    In my work khaki's no issues! And even just my normal jeans,even skinny jeans or baggy its fine! It doesn't look like I have a huge you know what! If you can go to a store and see if they will let you put it in your pocket, give it a try, I bet within a day you wont notice the size the of the phone! Most stores understand to when you ask if them to unlock to just try in your jeans or pants. Only time it ever stood out was when I had my pajamas on lol and had to run to the party store lol. Any concerns about feeling like a ****** or dweeb don't worry about it! If its a phone you feel you truly want, get it! Screw what others think! I have received many compliments on the phone and people inquiring on the phone! Plus its great when your laying in bed and can't sleep! Popped on Netflix a few nights ago and couldn't have been happier. Plus with the windows 8.1 leaks this phone looks like its going to be future proof for sometime!

    This phone is great. I saw one last week and now I have it. Only three minutes in the store and I felt that this is what I am waiting for. I have LG Flex too, Lumia 1520 is another story in every thing.

    As someone else mentioned, try checking on size as it is rather large.
    Also if Amazon is expensive, try a store called expansys as they ate usually cheaper.

    I'm trying one out right now. My goto device has always been an iPhone since 08. I tried the HTC one and 920 in the past but couldn't make the jump. I love the windows ui plus I have a PC, lumia620(use as a backup phone/mp3player) and surface rt. WP has been making pretty decent strides recently so I bought a 1520 with a damaged digitizer to try it out. So far I really like it. Its fast and the screen size makes using the phone enjoyable. If I had to be picky I'd make the screen .5 inches smaller just so it would fit better in my pockets lol.
    I'm hoping wp8.1 fixes all the shortcomings in the os and makes it easier to convert from ios and android.

    I use some form of mic (bluetooth or wired) about 75% if the time. It took acouple days for me to get used to holding it to my ear.
