    It's a fantastic device indeed. However because of such a big screen I'm afraid it might crack soon in my jeans pocket, need to get another pair of trousers lol

    Yes! There's the brand new Dev Preview Update 1. Just sign up at appstudio for a free account, download the "preview for developers" app, check "enroll", then get the update! Easy! :)

    With this new dev preview, you get "live folders" for your start screen, which are awesome! (plus numerous other features and fixes).

    I've owned this phone for three weeks, I don't have a carrier yet, decided not to return the phone (it's the best). Lately been hunting for a carrier, I hopefully should have a carrier very soon, although from what I've been quoted, it won't be the price I was hoping for to get 4G (lte). I'll update once I have a carrier.

    What else you'd love with this phone, put on a glove, a semi-thick glove and use your phone, beautiful ! Most Android users have told me, they can't do this. Some have admitted, WPhone is the best, and Apple stinks !

    Had my 1520 for 2 months now, updated to cyan last week and i am still getting surprised by what it can do. I think word flow is the best idea since sliced bread too. Also one feature i stumbled upon was Bing search by sound. My son was playing his music and Bing brought up the artist and song... Wow wow wow 😲

    The tray should pop out when the key is inserted.

    I also love my 1520, and it gets even better when you get an Xbox One and various other W8.1 devices, and then when you get Office 365 with 1tb of OneDrive storage and then a Music pass, the whole thing is amazing.

    Bob, don't forget the onenote sync and rooms, where you, your family members or friends can share a calendar, notes, pictures in one centralized place. (Only disclaimer is for everyone to experience this and use it to the full potential everyone must have a windows phone. )

    Hadn't forgotten, just didn't want to get her to excited but it didn't work

    Apart from messaging and the actual making calls, almost everything else can be interconnected across devices and family/friends etc.

    I can play a simple Xbox game, my score shows up on all devices and also my wife's devices and she tries to beat me, my Xbox avatar goes everywhere, it's even my picture on here.

    And the really good thing is it isn't hard work to achieve it all, ok it did take a few hours to get my head around Xbox Music, but even that is fantastic across devices when you get it sussed, and I can effectively take all that integration with me when I go out with my 1520

    It's funny, My iPhone "friends" poke at me when I have my Note III in hand.... and they get their jabs in while I point out things my Note will do that i*** never will... and I let them yack at me (I'm so over the Android Hate thing)... But then, I put the Note back in my pocket and slide out the 1520.... and simply say, ...now if you want to see some serious hardware.... ya, i*** guy tries really hard to get away from me...like he's trying not to get away from me.

    I should feel bad about doing that.... but... Nope. The 1520 is wonderful device.... dare I say, ego crushing to some... and with 8.1 Live Folders, the noise does not even say around for me to get pass the Home Screen *Bliss Achievement Unlocked*

    Enjoy!

    Who would have thought we would have so much processing power and storage in our pockets, when not to long ago we were still using floppy disks + sub ghz PCs

    How are you finding the size of it to handle? I had the same idea but I found the 5 inch Lumia 930 just about as big as I would like to handle so I didn't take much of a look at the 1520 thinking it would be too big.

    Yah I'm a bit obsessive. I got a case that's like a wallet and covers the screen but I'm still OCD about protecting this baby. 💖
    Yes, it is such a nice phone and so likeable, I am the same with my 1520, and I got mine in December when they came out for the UK, I am still in love with it. Every time I pick it up, just feels so nice with the build quality and it is just beautiful piece of kit. It's also very exclusive, you wont see everyone having one of these. I have on mine since the day I got it, and kept it in a phone pouch and there is not a mark on it, but these phones are tough. The polycarbonate plastic, the colour id dyed right through, meaning scratches don't really appear, and it is a tough plastic, it takes much more for it to scratch or damage.

    Have you update to 8.1 yet ?
