    I'm sorry but that's some BS, nearly all of those people would have stayed if there was a Lumia flagship available to hold them so to say its less to do with the lack of hardware is laughable.

    I fully understand peoples reservations about switching to an HTC all things considered but without a 6" WP everyone would be sporting Notes and iPhone+. So without a Lumia flagship less than 6" people are leaving to find it and the app gap only seals the deal.
    Wrong. The 1520 is quite fine for most of us users who have it...The ones who I've seen posting about leaving Windows Phones really are not saying anything about the hardware, it is because they have grown frustrated with the OS and lack of apps.

    It's usually the same argument

    1. Microsoft does better apps on Ios/Andorid
    2. I really need this random and silly app and Wp lacks it
    3. I'm giving up on Microsoft.

    Rarely is it because of a lack of hardware and usually the ones complaining about the lack of hardware are those of the 1st gen with Lumia 920...not the Icon/930 or the 1520 owners as much.

    As well as users who want a 1020 successor. But even then they don't switch(A 1020 owner almost never will switch because they are stuck to their camera and the 920 owners are waiting for another 4.5 inch phone but have recently moved to the 830....the 1520 owners, from what I've read are quite content and those who aren't, likely won't move to anything else because there is nothing else for them to move to.)

    Again I read the forums and unlike most here, I actually WORK in this field so I generally know what people are wanting and asking for and 9 times out of 10 it has something to do with an app or lack of an app or the OS itself. It was the reason I briefly left for the 6+. I was growing tired of the OS.....

    I have a 1520 and an M8. The 1520 has (hands down) a better camera, more exclusive apps, a larger screen, etc. etc.

    But I find myself using my M8 more. It's just such a beautiful, premium device.

    For me, guess it boils down to the phone's soul, not its spec sheet.
    And the 1520 is also a beautiful and premium device :)

    I am not quite sure what a phone's soul is/means....but I gues long as you do, that is all that matters :D

    People can bash the M8 all they want, got mine and its the best phone I have ever owned. Like it alot. Soft buttons, kick *** battery and solid hardware.
    Glad you enjoy it :) But I do love how when someone isn't praising a device(especially since this IS the 1520 forums) they are bashing it :D That logic is hilarious to me, but this is WC so nvm :D

    I love my 1520. However, I should have Gorilla Glass 3 by now (not to mention 4). I should have an 805 processor (not to mention 810). I should have a firmware update by now, I should have a slightly better screen to body ratio resulting in a reduced footprint and weight and I should have some slightly updated optics. What I DO have is great. But this should not be difficult for a Blue Chip company to pull off. I would not give up on Microsoft easily, however, it is becoming a much discussed fact that they are making everyone in the community wait too long, while destroying any hope of putting a Lumia device into the public consciousness during the upcoming 2015 blitz of devices. Why?
