    Tell them I charge the phone once every 4 days rather than 4 times every day. The Lumia 1520 battery beats all iPhones and androids combined.

    One of my staff members at work got a new giant android phone the other day (idk if its a note3 or a mega whatever) but he looked funny talking on it.. everyone was talking about it... So I went to my office and got my Surface 2 tablet and came out of the office pretending to be talking on it with it up to my head... had the entire building laughing! :D

    I occasionally get comments such as:
    "That's a big *** phone. You can watch a movie on that thing. That's real nice."
    "Is that a phone?" "Which one? Galaxy Mega?" So of course I reply "No, it's a Lumia 1520." (Surprisingly he had a 1020. I only ever notice maybe 2 or 3 Windows Phones in the wild a month).

    I can't wait to see the difference in comments between my current white Note II to my yellow 1320 when it arrives. I usually get at least one comment a day when I have my Note II out at school. Although with more people buying S4s and other large phones the number of comments is decreasing. Currently it is mostly the unoriginal iPhone crowd that comments. I am sure this will change though once my giant bright yellow Windows Phone arrives! It is like everything people make fun of in one device: huge phones, Windows Phone, and bright colors. I can't wait for the controversy! I love upsetting the iPhone crowd especially! They are so predictable it is funny.

    "Some of us like to be large and in charge, with high performance at our fingertips". I've got a Z Ultra (which is slightly bigger) and nothing was funnier than the reaction of my petite Asian MD coworker when she saw me pull that out of my pocket: "OMG! What is THAT?"

    I say that it's not a phone nor a tablet. It's a phablet!

    I've heard kids call it and other giant "phones" a sidewalk it is rather large for a "phone" - you must admit. I think they are just having a case of p***s envy, which begs the question to the owner... what's up with that, a problem in the call department ?

    The two I hear most often: "That's a big phone!", and "Is that a phone or a tablet?".
    Got a lot of that, yesterday, @ a wedding I attended. I was in a suit, thus had it on my belt (don't like chest pocket, it could accidentally fall out), clipped w a case (Red Lumia 1520 in a black ribbed case). Everyone who actually saw it (' ... here, try it ... ') was very impressed. Told them the truth, '...it was BIG for about a week, my eyes aren't what they used to be ...' etc. My brother liked it, but vaccilated back & forth between too big & the added functionality of actually being able to work on it, because of larger screen. Got a lot of ' ... that must've been a lot / must've been expensive ... ' - told them the truth, bought it outright - NO contract, NO subsidy.

    I've gotten very used to the size, love the camera (took some nice pix, Nokia Camera beta captures more than you see in picture, no more chopped off heads) & love the screen size for viewing said pictures. With picture / demo use yesterday, came home w ~75% charge left, & I took ~ 100 pictures (w post processing), plus saw the Kentucky Derby (after the fact).

    ... and I'm running WinPhone 8.1 Dev Preview, which made the Start Screen (blue water behind lots of transparent tiles) look like nothing they ever saw, before. Most were very impressed ! - Got one "where's the tiles ?"

    The problem isn't that the 1520 is so big, it's the fact (seemingly) everyone has a tiny iPhone.
    Wait until the 5.5/5.7" version of the iPhone 6 comes out next year and everyone has something just about as big. Suddenly, our BIG phones will be more normal.

    I still use my iPhone 5 as my phone, and my 1520 is my really portable tablet now, mostly because I have no place to keep it during the day, whereas my iPhone sits in a holster case on my belt.

    It's Physics. :)

    No the 1520 is big. I use a RAZR M and that thing is huge compared to my phone its even bigger than the Note 3. I am never personally getting a large device anytime soon. I want to actually use my phone with one hand right now and not have to use two hands to dial a phone number or text someone.

    I set up my Galaxy Tab 10.1 as a phone once using a VOiP service. But it really was bad, so I didn't use it again.

    I had someone ask me what I was trying to compensate for with the big phone, I just said glaucoma and walked off. One of them came after me and said sorry. O how I did smile.

    Meaning you're compensating for "something else" and you were too embarrassed to say the real reason ? (jk) we won't tell anyone -we promise !

    My wife calls my 1520 "B.A.P." (Big *** Phone.) Last week I walked into the living room and she said "Is that your phone in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"

    "Yes!"

    A friend I hadn't seen in a while came up the other day, showing me his spiffy new Galaxy S5 and all the neat things it could do. He paused, thinking I still carried my 920, and said "I think mine is bigger than yours."

    I pulled out my 1520 and said "Anything else you'd like to compare?"

    Most people get curios of my L820 thinking it's the L920. They also are shocked by its weight more than by its size (heard it's rather big for a 4.3" device in most reviews)

    As has been mentioned before, WinPhone 8.1 is simply the Final Beta of the OS. Expect an updated OS rolled out with in Nokia's case - Lumia Cyan. The bugs you reference could be the OS not playing nicely with not updated firmware (the certainty is mmmm approx. 99%).
