    I've noticed that Wi-Fi speeds aren't as good as my 5G iPod Touch. The iPod can pretty much max out my Wi-Fi connect speeds while the 1520.3 struggles to get more than 25Mbps.
    That was one of the first things I checked when I got my phone. On this test, it outdid the Note.imageuploadedbywpcentral-forums1403699484.497338.jpg

    This thread was so helpful! Finally ordered by 1520.3 from B&H tonight. Looked at it on Newegg last night, put one in my shopping cart and everything. My wife said I should sleep on it. So glad I did! Newegg wanted $631 (including shipping). Came on B&H today as a comparison and they wanted $619. Once I created a B&H site account, the price dropped by 50 bucks plus free expedited shipping! So only $569 for the phone. Will be here Wednesday of next week, just in time for the 4th of July camping trip!

    Good deal! My only regret in this whole process was canceling my B&H order and going with NewEgg. By the way, Square Trade has been sending out 40% off codes for their warranty. I decided to get one and it came out to $92 with Texas sales tax for two years of full coverage. They've dropped their deductible to $75. I originally decided I wasn't going to because I bought warranties on five Android phones that I've never used (Nexus/Note); however, there's been enough speculation about the status of the Nokia warranty on the 1520.3 that I decided better safe than sorry.

    I'm so glad I checked around B&H One more time.
    I Just canceled My Negri Phone order of $591 (Memorial Day Coupon)
    That I had been waiting on for over a month & they still have no stock.

    Placed my order from B&H $569 and it will be here next week.
    I guess it wasnt meant to be Negri...

    Hi guys, could you tell me if the phone ordered through Newegg arrives with broken seals (or no seals)? During the ordering process i needed to give them consent that i accept that the phone may arrive with broken seals due to their unlocking. What is your experience ordering it through Newegg? I really do not like the fact that it may arrive tampered. Who knows, they may have bunch of returned items that they want to get rid of?

    I ordered two and both were. I have another coming Wednesday and will let you know on this new one. I think that's a canned message as I saw that to when I first order my other ones.

    Thank you in advance! Just to clarify, both of yours were properly factory sealed, no signs that were opened, right? Please let me know on the one that should arrive Wednesday.

    I did order it. Newegg is kind of working slowly, they used to be a lot quicker with processing and shipping. Nah, i do not want to order through B&H ... I feel comfortable to order online from very few online places and Newegg used to be one of them ... Anyway, i'll record a video of the unpacking to serve as a proof if they got tempted to send me device with broken seals.

    Plus Newegg has no payments or interest for 12 months.... Makes the cost a little easier and its cheaper than doing ATT Next with a gimped phone.

    I continue to be impressed with how well this phone does on my home WiFi network. None of my Apple or Android devices come close to this.

    Do you mind sharing details on your router and connection type? My LTE speeds are fantastic on AT&T, however my WIFI speeds have been pretty poor at home.

    I replaced my router a few months ago but I don't remember the model. I can tell you that I have cable internet with an advertised 50mbps download speed, and that the router is dual frequency, and I connect the phone to the 5mhz side, "n" protocol.

    Order from newegg at your own risk, I ordered my first phone from them, the factory seal was slit and it had a HUGE scuff mark on back of the phone, like someone slid it across a rough surface, TWO replacements later, they finally realized that I wasn't falling for them selling me someone's used return as a new item, so they finally sent me a sealed one. Major headache, never again.

    The only reason I went with replacing the phone twice is because newegg denies all refunds on unlocked phones, so I was basically forced to put up with their lousy service.

    Save yourself the trouble and order from B&H photo, 30 day full refund, excellent CS and you'll actually get the item brand new as advertised.

    I remember reading similar experience here at wpcentral forums but i could not find it when i went searching for it. That is why i thought to ask. It may not be too late for me, i guess i can still reject the delivery. It supposed to arrive tomorrow.

    The funny thing is that i did call B&H and asked them specifically about the condition of the package, if it may arrive with broken seals. The rep answered that they do some testing on them and it indeed may arrive with broken seals.

    What iPod model did you test against? I tested my 1520.3 against my iPod 5th gen(the very latest model) and the iPod was faster easily.

    I didn't test it against an iPod--just a 3rd gen iPad. It did a 39Mbps on the same server. I'm not claiming any universal truth--just relating my experience. YMMV! :-)

    I recently purchased a red Nokia Lumia 1520 factory unlocked phone online. It is RM-937 not RM-938. The international factory unlocked 1520 phones sold online that I have seen advertised have all been RM-937. FYI my 1520 phone is 4G/LTE 800900/1800/2100/2600 with 32 GB internal memory and 2 BG RAM. I have a 64 GB micro SD card in it (no SD card slot in the AT&T 1520). Again I have not seen mention of RM-938 1520s online.
