    Having had the 1520 for a couple of months now, I must say it's wonderful. Perfect screen, very good camera, quick processor, ample memory, nice UI. Well, I love just about everything about it.

    Had an 8 hours lasting train trip earlier today during which I pushed the device so hard but the battery is just invincible.

    Not much, just the big crisp display, fast SoC, awesome 8.1 OS update, smooth UI, huge battery, loud clear speaker, great build quality, low cost, etc.

    Oh wait, that's everything. So yeah, I like everything about it. :-)

    What don't like? Needs more accessories, a few more apps would be nice. Minor stuff really.

    yeah i love that i havnt picked up my kindle in the 2 months ive had this phone, amazon app & bookviser is all i need and now just use my 1520 for reading,
    I also like that i cannot kill the battery, even playing games or reading with the back light on the dam battery will not die.
    I love how it DOES fit into all my pockets,
    I love not having to pinch and zoom in to read everything 6' screen will do that for you.
    I dont like the rounded sides makes holding it a bit slippery, i didn't have a problem with this until i used my wife's 930 with nice square grippy sides, this isnt a deal breaker i just hope the change it for the next 15?? model

    It is simply the best WP experience available right now. The screen is beautiful as well as big. The 367 pixel per inch IPS is sooooo nice unless you are hardcore AMOLED fan you could not want for anything screen wise (higher pixel density is available, but 367 is so high you have to squint very close to the screen to see any pixelation and with the color and brightness profiles dialed in it is bright, vivid and clear with no over-saturation - and IPS beats AMOLED every day for sunlight readability). 20MP camera. SD card slot. Killer battery life. Top shelf spec. Beastly on the inside, beautiful on the outside...

    Thanks. Ate there any specific features to the phone that you can't get anywhere else other than the camera?

    Lumia 930 matches the 1520 in almost all respects including CPU/GPU and Camera... HTC One (M8) has a very slight edge on CPU/GPU and there is the Camera question with the UltraPixel dual 4MP set-up, but also the question mark about what type of firmware support HTC will provide.

    930 vs 1520; I believe 1520 wins hands down with Glance, Battery Life and SD slot - none of which 930 has.

    The screen quality? Or the specific hardware from Nokia (SensorCore)? The great battery?

    But more than "specific" features, I love all the phone and how it is build and how it works.

    Sorry for not being really clear but yeah. Sensor core, it are there any specific apps made especially for the 1520. I would love it if it was like the Galaxy note and had multiple windows.
    Anyway. Thanks for the response

    Windows Phone 8.x can't do multi-windows, but next windows version (9.x) will do (rumour).

    I think the whole thread should answer this, the phone is just superb, screen, camera, sound, battery life, speed and it runs WP so well, then as mentioned already the integration with the rest of the Windows family (OK I know other WP's do this, but none as well as the 1520).

    I do understand some people think it's too big but once you get used to it would be hard to swap it for anything else, there is nothing on the market I would look at this year and it will still be a top phone well into next year as well.

    So roll on W9 as the 1520 will cope with anything and it will get better.

    I just sold my LG G3 and picked up the 1520. It's my first Windows phone and I love it. I have had every iPhone except for the 6 and have had two android phones. I started looking at Windows phones once I picked up the Surface 2.

    And there's the microsd slot that will work with cards up to 128 GB

    I just ordered a 1520 yesterday. The receipt says it will be here between Wednesday and Friday. My wife ordered a 1020 yesterday also.

    Needless to say, we are crazy excited and can't wait til they get here.

    If I was you I would use this sense of excitement to head of to the shops and buy an Xbox One before the wife calms down and closes the purse strings.

    When you get the phones, allow all pictures to be uploaded to OneDrive, turn on Xbox, go to OneDrive and all your pictures are ready to view on your telly with no other actions needed, this will impress the wife enough to cover the cost of the Xbox and then you will have a complete system including both phones being able to act as remotes for the Xbox One and much more besides.

    But do it quick before the wife notices.....

    Wish I could talk the wife into getting a Windows Phone. She's hopelessly tied to Samsung... and gets me to fix her devices for her.

    Haha... I'm already working on it!

    My wife was all about the HTC until she got a 520 a bit ago as a temporary replacement. She love Cortana, People Rooms, and the 1020 sold her with the 41mp camera.

    My wife has the 520 and I bought her a bridge camera for her birthday last year, I did have to ask her why she was using her phone to take pictures, the reply was she doesn't know how to work the camera, so I am thinking about replacing the 520 with a 1020 or maybe a 735 for the larger screen (Although not as good camera).

    Since we got the Xbox One apart from her calling me up one morning to say she couldn't turn the telly on (She was holding the button down for a long time so turning it all on and then off again in one button press) she has managed to completely control our set up of telly, receiver, Virgin cable box and the XB1 as the XB1 media controller controls it all and it's simple.

    So I will probably end up buying another XB1 for her bedroom telly and ditch the Freeview/recorder box that she can't work once I have tested out the impending XB1 TV dongle, anything for a simple life

    Hope the phones are all you want, well impressed by my 1520 and to be honest the 520 is pretty impressive for a budget phone, all thanks the OS.
