    You guys must be the lucky ones... I bought a 1520, a few days later I started to had problems with touch... The screen was unresponsive to touch... later on, parts of the screen stop to react to touch... I sent it back to Nokia, they said the phone had liquid inside!! After fighting for a month, finally the shop where I bought it agreed to replace for any phone at the same price (I paid 700 for the phone!). I was thinking to buy the same one but then I chose the 930.

    I'm happy with the 930, even thou it has no glance and no SD card.

    My thoughts about 1520: Great screen (the perfect size would be 5.5 or 5.7) great camera, great speed, glance, sd card...

    Maybe I had bad luck with mine, maybe it was a defective...

    Yup, best phone on the market. I just have to giggle about the 'next big thing' to hit the market and everyone is all excited about the 'new' features when us 1520 owners have had most, if not all, those new features for a year now.

    People wonder why there are no new flagship phones released this year for Windows Phone. Why release a new phone when your year old phone is just as good, if not better than the competition's new flagships?

    I agree. While I am always happy to see something new and better, I am not expecting much more from whatever replaces the 1520 and would be absolutely shocked if it offered anything 95% of buyers would consider more than just nice to have. I think we are at a point where more will come from software upgrades and the hardware in phones like the 1520 have enough power, memory and sensors to handle what's coming in the near to mid term future. That doesn't rule out MS deciding to withhold software enhancements to get people to upgrade but I think they should be focusing on more phone customers, not more phones to the same customers. To gain the most market share they should be wanting to avoid making Windows phones something that goes obsolete before the competition.

    I just went from the 930 to the 1520. I loved everything about the 930 but couldn't get AT&T LTE on it. I prefer the size of the 930 for one handed use and miss the wireless display, but am very happy to have the glance screen back! 1520 feels just as fast as the 930 did.

    DENIM will include 4K video at 24 fps, with digital photo samples from them at 5 mb, which is enough to really get me excited and happy that I chose a 1520 upgrade recently.

    The 1520 supports Push2TV. I have it and it works great for wireless display.

    I am old school enough to remember when it seemed that PC's were constantly being upgraded and a new computer was obsolete 6 months after you bought it. It has been the same with phones. Seems like every 6 months a new, more powerful phone is released. I welcome the 1520 that, after a year on the market, can still hold its own against the competition.

    Hi, in any manufactured device, expect at least a few devices to be defective. Replace your phone if you still have a warranty.

    I am about to find out. UPS just dropped off at my office by brand new 1520.3 from B&H! I'm going to try to sand down my SIM card from my 920 to the nano size to see how that works for me (and I can stop and get a card from the at&t store on my way home if I destroy this one). It will take a little getting used to, it is so big!

    So far in really liking my 1520. Got it a few weeks ago so I'm still learning alot, came from the galaxy note 2. My only windows phone was the Samsung focus when they first came out lol, only had it for a week before trading it in for the first galaxy s.

    The battery of this device is amazing! But yes all around the best device for sure. What I would love to see the successor being little smaller, 5,5"-5.8" would be better size for a big device. IMO at least.
    Or keep the 6" screen and make it 20-25 grams lighter by using thinner metal.

    The 930 really isn't better than the 1520 in any way.

    Actually, the 930 is a weird one as it was supposed to be a flagship but due to the time it was released it's really just a mid-level device.

    Still a great phone, similar to the 1520 in many ways but missing several features the 1520 sports, such as microSD slot, glance support to name a few.

    I think there are pros and cons to both. That being said, a 5" 1520 with a glance-capable AMOLED screen would be my dream windows phone device. Despite liking the 930, I'm really not massively keen on the square shape, metal band direction they seem to be taking higher end Lumia phones towards.

    Those are the only two features. It has everything else that 1520 sports. It has a manageable screen size. It's a phone. 1520 is a phablet. Whole new different category. So best Windows "Phone" is 930. Windows Phablet is 1520.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. My 1520 will serve me well until a Windows 10 flagship is released next year.

    A phablet is still a phone. And nope, the best WP should have at least a microSD card support. 😎

    It is, but....that's not saying much. I loved the 920, it worked great for me for 2yrs, then I downloaded 8.1 and it became useless - no camera, randomly called people, wouldn't pair with my car, <1 day battery life. I got the 1520 as a replacement under insurance, and was unsure about the size. Reviews were glowing so I accepted it, and it is a spectacular device - beautiful, great screen, fast, smooth, excellent camera - all is good, right? Unfortunately no, the size is wrong for me. Uncomfortable in jeans front pockets, and worse, I think the size contributes to it's fragility. I dropped it one time, from 4 inches, and the screen cracked. So many people have the same story - it's just not at all durable. I know one other person who has one - cracked screen first week. It's not a good daily driver phone for me. Too big and too fragile for a $600+ device. Now it constantly pulls up Bing Search, hops from one function to another, freezes. It's just a little crack in the corner, and one across the face, but it's screwing up the phone. I laid a piece of tempered glass across it to hold everything together for now.

    But what are the alternatives? The 1020 looks like it'll work, but it's really no upgrade on the 920 - 400 series Snapdragon processer, etc. Camera is nice, but real world does it take better snaps at, say a concert at night, than a high end Android or iphone? Big drawback to 1020 is no Qi charging, (I'm on ATT).

    I'm likely going to pick up a used 920 on ebay while I wait for a better WP to come along. I want the durability and Qi charging of the 920, the processor, battery life, micro SD slot, RAM and camera of the 1520, with a 5-5.3" screen.

    I really hope MS takes the learning experience from Nokia and not to build low quality phones like the 930 and 1520 - with sub par parts.. the touch screen glitch, and the over heating 930 .. lol
