    If all goes well, I'll be getting a 1520 tomorrow! I currently have a 925 and had a 920 briefly before this. My 2 choices are the 930 and 1520, but I'm strongly leaning towards the latter. The lack of expandable memory is a deal breaker. I've learned my lesson with the 925 and its disappointing 16gb. I guess the only thing I'm concerned about is the size of the phone and my pocket. How well does it fit into jeans? I don't want this to be the reason not to get it, because I think that would be silly since the benefits of the screen size outweighs the inconvenience. Thoughts and input? Thanks!

    I was stuck between 930 and 1520. And in the end I got 1520 and couldn't be happier. If the size is not a problem for you, 1520 is the very best WP on the market right now! I love the big screen and the ecosystem with my Xbox One and Windows 8.1 PC so far. You'll be very pleased imo. I had no problem fitting it in any pocket( jeans or other pants). One hand usage is very limited though. Anyway, I never planned to used it with one hand. At first glance, yeah it's huge, but after you get used to it, it's gorgeous. Don't hesitate. ;)

    It fits, but it is a strange feeling. Definitely you will need some time to get used to it. Putting it in the pockets might lead to the swipe-tap problem due to the slight bending. It is not a deal breaker, but it might be frustrating at times. After getting the 1520, my next purchase was a good headset. And now I'm waiting for the MS band to be available, so I will not need to get it out of my pocket for every notification - this is what the size is doing to me :)

    Thanks for the input! I'm thinking about how great the screen would be for videos and reading. That's why I'd tolerate the small issues that come with a screen that size. I guess you always have to compromise with any choice you make. The lack of SD card would bother me more!

    Another thing I'm worried about is looking stupid making calls on it. I know that's a superficial thing to be concerned about!

    Anyway, I think I'm definitely going for it. Even though it's a year old, it's still the best Lumia 😊

    Welcome to the 1520 club! Any worries you have will quickly be squashed once you start using this beast... give it about a week and you'll be used to the size, then all other phones will seem tiny in your hand and you'll wonder how you ever got by without it! ;)

    get the 1520 big is good better for videos and the web. just watch it in your front pocket getting in and out of your car. mine is in a case but before I got the case it was a bit slippery in my pocket.

    My yellow 1520 will be here in the next couple days as well. Moving to it from a 928. I've been coveting this phone for the last year. Excited for the new phone and to try AT&T!

    Nope. Didn't get it. No stock. And there won't be stock again. I'm quite upset at the moment. Hopefully there will be a new "phablet" on the horizon. I don't fancy the 930 and I'm not going Droid either

    I have had my 1520 for about a month now, and I love it. One thing that helps for me is that the phone arrived almost simultaneously as cold weather, so I have been putting the phone in a coat pocket since I had it, since it is kind of big for jeans, although they do fit.

    Roscoe, where were you looking to buy a 1520, and why are they saying that they won't be getting any new stock?

    Have you tried ordering it from the Microsoft Store? If you live near one you can just pick one up from the store. I bought my yellow one from the Microsoft Store and the red one from ATT, both in person no waiting and that is the best.
