    Thanks guys for your answers, Currently I am on T-Mobile, I have two options, one is to get the 1520 from AT&T and another is to get an unlocked version, Which one do you suggest ? And if you suggest unlocked version, is there a specific version to get ?
    Thanks again

    The unlocked one you want is RM-938 AKA 1520.3; Factory Unlocked country variant for Latin America. The advantage over the AT&T one is LTE on T-MoUS or AT&T (AT&T model will not get T-Mo LTE, but unlocked gets both), built in 32GB internal storage (AT&T only one black model has 32GB, others with 16GB), Qi wireless charging built in (AT&T uses the competing PowerMat format and requires a jacket be put on the phone, unlocked needs no jacket and is on the more readily found Qi).

    B&H Photo usually has the best price on 1520.3. Make sure to web search 1520.3 AND RM-938. Do'nt get the RM-937 that is out there - it is more suited for European use (radios inside) or the RM-939 for Asia that lacks LTE all together...

    Thanks, What color do you have ? B&H has only black now, does the white one get stains after a while or not ?

    1520 is a Super so why to wait ?
    in case of consumer elctronics you can always wait... as there comes better time after time. So Go now and take next one when you are ready, it will be better anyway.

    I got my girlfriend a Lumia 1520.3 and she loves it. I've been thinking about jumping to it from my Lumia 1020 but I feel like there's something around the corner and I should just wait for it. Really hoping for a 5" Lumia flagship. I don't like the fact the HTC One M8's camera ain't so great.

    Hunh? All the spec I've seen shows RM-939 is physically missing an LTE radio... Do you mean unlocked 4G symbol to indicate H+ data speed? Or does it light up LTE?

    Can you clarify? Is there a source to link?

    I upgraded from 920 to 1520 too. The main advantage of this phone imo is battery. Always felt the 920 was a better performer when it comes to photography especially low light.
    My advice, if you are interested in photography, is to wait. 1030 will be released before march 2015.. Even before windows 10.. If that's the case then you d be disappointed with the 1520 (just the camera not the battery mind you)..

    Sorry, what is your source for this claim? Does anyone even know if a successor is planned let alone what it'll be called and when it will be released?

    I'm just baffled how people can take unfounded rumors and repeat them over and over as fact with no proof at all....

    Wait.. As someone who's had the 920, two 1020s, and now a 1520, I must argue that the 1520 completely blows away the 920's camera.. even in low light, and especially after Cyan and using the right settings. What makes some think the 920 is better at low light, I believe, is that when the 920 came out, there was nothing before it (on a phone) that could compete, and it completely wowed everyone with it's low light capabilities. Yes, the 920 still takes amazing pics, but the Pureview camera tech has come a long way since then... and if someone upgraded to a 1520 from a 920, and were disappointed with the camera, I'd have to say they don't know what they're doing with the settings. The 1520's camera is so much better in every way...

    That is what Satya Nadella told me I dunno if he can be trusted though. He was wearing a black turtle neck and blue jeans and was in the middle of announcing a new gadget when he said "one more thing" he paused "we may launch the 1030 before march next year.. If you are planning to buy a 1520 you will be disappointed"

    Some guy from MS did say they were planning for a 1020 successor. The contents of my last post are just my thoughts. There's no proof for anything I said earlier.

    I would caution you, the L1520 has lots of issues with the touch screen, where the phone will completely spaz out if you hold it with too much pressure on the sides. I would go with a 930 but that's just me.

    That's a bit of hyperbole there. There is not a lot of issues with the 1520 and touch sensitivity. There are some issues but having owned two(I wanted to different colors) over the past year I would recommend it in a heartbeat.

    On the flipside I had the 930 first, and returned it after nearly 2 months due to screen lift. Got a brand new 1520...

    ...Awesome!

    Thinking of getting one too as my AT&T contract is up soon...have been very pleased with my L-920, but need a new toy...lol
    The green-hulk color may be too much for my tastes...however it is the latest out....less chance of having the tap_scroll issues 'as much'...
