    Jeez, dude, put it back in your pants. It's just a thing, ya know? In a year or two you will look on this with total amazement that you were once so seduced.
    Yes, I'm sure that in a couple of years I'll be tired of it and ready to be seduced by the next "latest, greatest" gadget, and I can't wait for that either!

    In a household where I'm the only one that enjoys gadgets, it's nice to have forums to discuss them with others that enjoy them as well. I was pretty stoked when I picked up my eVic the other day, but there are plenty of people over at the vape lounge that geek out over that stuff to talk to. In the AT&T store (where, incidentally they have 0 Windows Phones on display, and 2 in stock in the back) they treated me like a pariah because I wanted to abandon Android.

    But I digress... TL;DR: Switch from a L920 to a Note 3, and you'll be excited to get back to Windows Phone too :)

    That looks like a great case, does it rise up a little above the screen? I'm not in the habit of resting my phones on their faces, but it happens occasionally, and it'd be a bonus if the case touched the table and the phone didn't.

    Those drones follow their noses too much, they've already made a decision, before they even try it. (but, there's a possibility they're getting chits from Samsung).

    However, it's becoming harder to make a living doing what they do, too many unscrupulous (not all, but some) sales reps.

    I'm from Canada and was in Seattle on Friday and I couldn't find anyone with a case for the 1520. Att people and Best Buy looked at me weird when I asked if they had any Lumia 1520 accessories. Wow. Tells you how few people know how nice this phone is and WP in general.

    Aside from the highly irritating phantom tap issue, the 1520.3 is pretty much incredible.

    Aside from the highly irritating phantom tap issue, the 1520.3 is pretty much incredible.
    Playing around on the wife's 920 and mother in law's 520, I almost feel that the phantom taps on my 1520 are on par with the other devices, no worse. Either they made alot of progress with software updates (im on 8.1.1 DP w/ Cyan) or this problem is present on the other two devices as well.

    The 1520 is hands down the best phone I have ever owned. I wish some of the software tweaks availible on other flagships (like a better audio eq and processing tweaks, one handed layout of keyboard, split screen for two apps, ability of keyboard to remember email address login so you can just paste it in, and things like that) and im really high on the ir blaster for my phone being my remote control, some say gimmick, I say its almost a must have ;)

    But the over all creature comforts the Lumia 1520 has are too many to really ever think of leaving the Lumia family for something like the HTC m8. Things like the sunlight readability mode, placement of the power button, dedicated camera button, glance screen, double tap to wake (though other OEMs are offering that tech now), polarized screen layer to reduce glare, super sensitive touch mode, ect.

    I used to want every new phone that came out, since the 1520 (other than the IR blaster) I have not wanted any other phone regardless of the latest and greatest and I was a junkie ask my wife, she hated how I was never satisfied.

    You made a great choice and I hope ypu enjoy your 1520 as much as I do. I am a little envious that ypu are getting the 1520.3, that being the only phone that os better than mine ;)


    Sorry for the long post

    I sold my iPhone 5s and bought a Lumia 1020 and 1520 with the money. I tend to use the 1020 when I know I'll be talking a lot of pictures, but every time that I use the 1020 I miss almost everything about the 1520. It's faster, better screen and the battery life is awesome! Great choice in getting the 1520!!!

    Got mine today. After 5 minutes in use it already became crystal clear that it was the right decision to change from my beloved 620. The screen is absolutely mindblowing and listening to music with my Purito Pro headphones is so much more fun when everything is speedy!

    Got it today, and it is a flawless phone. I absolutely LOVE this phone. The screen is amazing. It makes the screen on my Note 3 look like a Game Boy (well, not really... but still...). I definitely made the right choice! Very happy!

    LOL... My case is in already and I don't get the phone until Tuesday... And have to wait till Friday for my ISIS nanoSIM.

    Here's the case I got: Amazon.com: AceAbove Nokia Lumia 1520 Slim Clear Back Case with Bumper / Cover for Nokia 1520 - Clear: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I have several cases and this is by far my favorite.

    It looks great, feels great, fits like a glove around the sides and corners right up to the screen exaactly and while being pretty slim still lends confidence against damage. I'm extra pleased that the lip around the camera keeps the glass over the lens from contacting surfaces when the phone is set down screen-side-up.

    I'm loving the way it flaunts that HUGE Yellow back in everybody's face. Mwahahahahaha.

    This 1520 has been so much better than expected. Aside from my Audible and a few other problems, it is able to replace any desire for a tablet. It's even basically rendered my laptop as a home theater PC. It's the best tech choice I've made in ages.

    You will be happy :)

    I got both at the same time too. I use my 1520 more since it is easier to hold on to.

    Two weeks back or so I was pretty sure I should get the Lumia 830. But after today's announcement I'm totally convinced that I have not done anything wrong by picking up the 1520 spontaneously. The 830 is still a very nice phone though!
