    Hi guys!!!
    I had Lumia 620 but few months ago, my Lumia dies. :-(
    So I am looking for new phone. I donť want Android or iOS (i really donť want it :-D ) because i love WinPhone.
    And i don't have tablet (and now i don't have even SmartPhone, because i have Nokia C6-00 and it isn't smart :-D ) So i was looking for some Lumia phablets. I found Lumia 1320 and 1520. I chose 1520 because of perfect display, awesome camera and so!
    But i hesitate, if i should wait for new Lumia phablets, maybe for 1530. Because i am little bit afraid, if will be possible to upload Windows Phone 9 to this "old phones".
    So, should i buy Lumia 1520? :)
    Thank you very much!

    P.S. I am from Czech Republic and my english isn't so good. So I apologize for the mistakes.

    Buy the Lumia 1520 - I still luv mine.

    Nothing is future-proof, but this device should still be significant with Win9 coming & should be able to take upgrades thru the next year (@ least). Anxiously awaiting Lumia Denim ... have WinPhone 8.1 update1 on Dev Preview.

    Any subsequent high end devices are simply rumors with no (current) substantiation (though that could change @ the end of this month - everything is eerily quiet regarding new flagship devices).

    Exactly what he said ^^^

    I'm not sure what you want out of a Tablet type device, but the Huge 6" screen is beautiful after you dial in the color and brightness profiles. Comfortable reading... and the Turn by Turn? LMAO I had my 1520.3 held up side by side with some dedicated Nav devices at a store (Tom Tom and Garmin), rivals any of them for size. Here Drive+ is fantastic on the 1520.

    Hour per hour battery competes with tablet use as well.

    1520 was just done right...

    I sold my iPad mini Retina to buy my 1520, a couple of trade offs but carrying one device is better for me.

    And the 1520 screen is better, 1080x1920 vs 768 x 1024, 2GB of ram vs 512MB...

    The only reason why I won't recommend a 1520 to you is if your hands are too small. It's a really big phone and if your hands aren't big enough you'll have a hard time. If that's not the case, then go get it. It's fast and reliable, screen is big and clear. Battery is awesome too.

    Pffft... My hands are small and I have no issues...

    It's not like it is so large you can't hold onto it unless you have gorilla mits. You just won't do everything one handed... And probably not anyone will unless they have the grip radius of an NBA All-Star.

    Just what I expected going into it, knowing the screen was 16:9 ratio with a 6" diagonal. Left to right is cool even for smaller hands... Top to bottom is only for Tentacle Beasts.

    You're good then...

    When I had an HP Veer for my daily driver (2.6" screen) I still used it two handed. 1520 was no learning curve for me.

    1520 is the worst phoneI have ever owned. It is my second WP device. First one was great a 620. Screen broke and decided to upgrade.Bought the 1520 and worked great for about 6 months. Then the random screen issues popped up. Upgraded to latest software twice and it never went away and got so mad I threw it at a wall and broke that screen (That isn't what happened to the 620, I left it in my pants pocket and the stepped on my pants and shattered the screen). I hope they fixed the issues mine was a very first Generation!!! SERIOUSLY considering a Iphone 6 Plus. If AT&T releases the HTC ONE M8 for Windows soon, I might give that a try but I amimpressed with the Iphone 6 plus right now.

    Very unfortunate, all of that; given your screen name...

    ​Is that maddening screen dealie just AT&T models? Not seen touch and swipe errors on the RM-938... Yet. *cross fingers, knock on wood*

    Wow there's always one - this phone sucks, because I got frustrated with it & threw mine against a wall

    scratch that off the potential remedies - throwing it against a wall was not very effective in fixing the issue you had ...

    I would wait until November if you can due to holiday deals and possible (1525?) model refresh.

    Remember whatever successor (if there will be any) that the 1520 get - it will be very expensive. The 1520 is now about half of the initial price when it was released.
    Just make sure you don't get it from the cheapest retailer causing you headache when there is a fault. I strongly recommend amazon etc. so you can get it replaced and not deal with crappy warranty repairs or unreliable dealers.

    If your in the US get the 1520.3 unless your tied to Verizon or not in the US, the 1520 is a phone that keeps on giving and it is only going to get better with the new updates.

    Get it and you will not regret it, unless the size becomes a issue which may grow on you over time :P.

    I would suggest skipping the 1520 because of the numerous screen sensitivity complaints. If you really want a Windows Phone and a tablet, get a mint 92x and buy a Dell Venue 8 Pro. I don't have anything against the 1520, just don't want you to regret your choice later if you end up getting the screen sensitivity bug that's causing headaches for most of the owners. In fact, the tablet + phone would cost you less than the 1520 altogether. If you can wait, then see what's coming up in the holidays from Microsoft Mobile, for now you can settle with a slightly cheaper WP
