    i bet your next and last device will have that poping/static sound too, every 1520 i had in my hands had it, some more, some less.
    ​..
    Oh no! Is this a common issue? Cuz it happens all the time on my 8X, and I was hoping that it was a hardware issue so I could just get another device and it wouldn't be there...

    well, at least it seems to be a common issue on the lumia 1520.
    i kinda got used to it now, so it doesnt bother me anymore :)
    The sad thing about the story is, that Nokia's "built quality" is the worst i ever seen on a Phone.
    The Lumia 1520 is my 7th or 8th Lumia and probably my last, because every single on of them had Issues.

    My first one was a Lumia 800: touchscreen defect

    second one was the replacement, which was in retrospect the best Lumia i ever had (quality wise)

    third one was a Lumia 900: vibra motor rattled like hell, and sounded pretty bad, but i lived with it

    fouth one was the Lumia 920: again vibra motor rattle (worse than the 900) and loose battery (as soon as you tilted the device, you could hear and feel a "click" when the battery moved inside the case)

    fifth one was another Lumia 920 (replacement): defective usb-port, right out of the box

    sixth one was another Lumia 920 (2nd replacement) vibra rattle (like all 920's i had) but i lived with it, since the rest seemed to be ok. 5 months later, the phone killed it self by overheating, after i turned it on. the phone was turned of over night, and when i turned it on in the morning, it freeze and became pretty hot at the back, when i finaly was able to turn it off, it was dead.

    Then i tried my seventh Lumia. The Lumia 925:again vibra rattle, and the speaker was crackling when playing sounds.
    I thought "thats it, thats was my last Lumia EVER!!" i brought it back, and bought a Samsung ATIV S, which i was happy with, untill i saw the Lumia 1520.....

    I thought i give Nokia a last chance with the 1520 and ordered it..
    I will keep it, but this is for sure the last Phone i will ever buy from Nokia....

    on a side joke, the 6th device should arrive today but they shipped it to someone else. so they will ship it again tomorrow (same device). when it come i will let u know.

    What proof have you given, all I see is a phone with a bright spot and a recording that a 5 year old could fabricate. I still don't see any evidence that you got 5 phones.

    Personally I think there should be some sort of imei register when your registering on here and without it you can't bull**** everyone about your non existent phone. Yes I know you posted a photo of your phone but here have a look at my learjet 45, now I don't remember buying it but it must be mine because I have posted a photo of it.
    Not that hard to confirm, just ask him to post the pic on his table with something you request. A banana with a sharpie mark. A paper towel folded like a tent, etc...

    Yeah I already asked him for a photo with something like my signature on here wrote on a piece of paper. I guess he will now be able to do the photo with both phones.

    Still doesn't show that he got 6 phones in total though.

    It takes a special kind of genius to continue to re-order a phone ...

    that he knows will come in w a defect.

    Now that's perseverance, or Forest Gump.

    I'm on my TENTH 1520!!! I sent the first 9 back because somehow Nokia QC messed up and one changed colors from yellow to red! The last phone I had developed a tiny scratch and when I peeled it away, lo and behold, it was really a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 disguised as a 1520! Sneaky sneaky Nokia/MS but I'm catching on to your tricks!

    Maybe you could make a demonstration showing how you pierce your *sixth* L1520 polycarbonate plastic with your nails.

    Victim of white dot on my replacement device, initial one had heating issues.
    Contacted nokia through chat and they have arranged a pickup within next 4 hours.

    Do you have a photo of where the white dot is? When you say heating how bad was it and were your on 8.1

    Also you do realize that all phones get very hot when they are being worked. What were you doing when the phone was heating. What was your last phone?

    Every smartphone I've ever had will 1) shut down or 2) force reboot which most of the time leads to a boot loop. If stuck in an overheating bootloop let it loop and put it in a freezer (android trick). You could possibly face where the phone wont shut down.
    I do know the snapdragons on most Android phones will throttle if it gets over a certain temp but idk if the WP kernels are set up the same way but im pretty sure they are.
    another thing that can happen is the cores getting stuck wide open (common problem on the G2) and will lead to a thermal runaway (this is why I like a removable battery) but in most cases the phone will just reboot into a boot loop hence the freezer trick.

    I've seen core temps in the 140f range screwing with over clocking and kernel settings,(gotta love making a snapdragon 600 pull over 22k on Antuttu) I need to look in my settings on my HTC one but I want to say performance throttling is set around 130f on the kernel im using on it.

    When I had my Xperia Z1 it was overcooked and boy did it get hot. I think it was worse because it was glass. I had on one occasion on my 1520 when it heated up after Cortana got stuck and while it was very hot it was nowhere near as hot as phones can get.

    People would be surprised if they ever measured there phone when it was what they thought was hot and it would only be 110-115 degrees. Think about it, water in a jacuzzi on average is 105 and that's pretty dam hot when you first try to get in it. A cars leather seats in the sun is about a buck 20 so when your phone hits thermal threshold trust me you will know it.
