    I was in line to eat at chipotle and saw this kid with a 1520. I thought it was his dads, but then he put it in his pocket. I realized it was his and told him nice phone and gave him a hi five. Lol. His parents gave me an odd look when I did this, but I am surprised to see such a young windows phone user. Maybe windows phone is cool among this young generation that hasn't been taken over by apple yet.

    I saw one in the wild the other day too. Hope to see more and more 1520's and Windows Phones out and about.

    And me only an original Nintendo Classic. I have a daughter who is 7 years old and I am thinking in gift her a phone when she turn 8. I guess, we are in a time in which is easy to find a cheap windows phone. But the 1520 is not cheap at all. I purchased mine for $475 dollars. The parents of this 12 years old must be in a contract plan or they are wealthy.

    My wife and 12 year old were in the local Microsoft store yesterday and it was reported that the 12 y.o. would not stop playing with the 1520 even though she was getting her Surface replaced under warranty (damage.) Said 12 y.o. has a 920.

    If i may ask; Whats the use of giving an 12yo an [expensive] smartphone? and i'm not talking about playing games on it and such.

    I have yet to see a 1520 in the wild. Seems to be scarce here around the Bay Area.

    well i havent seen a 1520 so far other than mine..when i bought it {free of any contract} the sales manager took a pic with me saying its the 3rd 1520 they are selling!!! LOL ..that was about 5 months ago but still to see another 1520...
    they really pushes the 1520 over other models but i guess people prefer the lower end models more when it comes to windows phone..

    Well, most smartphones arn't flagships to begin with I'd assume, but I think the more likely reason is that even most flagship people don't really go for phablets.

    I was standing in line with my 1520 and someone else with a 1520 was right behind me. He stops me and goes "Windows Phone master race!" And we high-fived. It was weird.... And awesome.

    Actually guys windows phone is quite popular at my college it seems that the iPhone is dying in popularity, but also I haven't seen a single person with an S5.

    Windows Phone is getting there when I showed my friend my 1520 with Windows Phone 8.1 DP she screamed quite loud... Finally! And it looks awesome!

    I love my 1520, and whenever I use it in public, people give me funny looks because it is so big compared to their puny little iPhones.

    Whenever I pull out my 1520 people say that phone is big and then say it suits you. If I can get my 13yr old off her iPhone I would be good but it has a ton of apps her friends use and the appreciation she showed Christmas to have a phone I think I may get her one if she asks.

    My 15 year old sister has a 925 and my 3 half brothers all have Windows Phones. They all go to the same high school in Ohio, and I asked my sister what her friends think. She told me all her friends want wps! That they are very "in" at her school!! Her Math teacher has been asking her questions about them too!

    Pretty sure 😅, she was ready to leave windows phone, but as soon as she saw the new features, she was really happy and looking forward to it.

    I once built my own "phone" with a cardboard box and some markers.

    I still wonder why people refuse to make phones made of wood (or its derivatives.)

    oooh in 5th, 6th grade I used to make a bunch of paper ones. I think I still have them actually.

    Didn't the Moto X have a wood option?
