    Now will this come out of the box with Cyan or will I need to make that happen?

    I don't care about having a ton of apps either, but I do wish, given the size of the screen, there were something like Swype. I miss the ease of flow typing, but the predictive text is very good, I have to admit.
    Dude you have Swype!
    Ha! I just realized that! Guess it came with the latest update. Thank god, lol.
    Too funny.

    Congrats on the new phone! As an Icon user, i'm often jelly of my friends with 1520's. But happy for ya!

    It'll come with Cyan out of the box. You might want to consider the developer preview still if you're attached to Windows 8.1 upgrade 1 features. Denim hasn't arrived yet for AT&T 1520's.

    I've had it for about a day now. This is truly a premium Windows Phone experience! The 1080p screen is gorgeous and I love how zippy it is. Skype opens in half the time.

    I got this phone to hold me over until the next flagship, and I am glad I did. If any of you on the 920 want a quick upgrade, this is it. The timely SD card sale on amazon was just icing on the cake.

    FYI, I got this off of eBay and it did not come with Cyan out of the box. I'm surest the newest ones do, however.

    Ha, the same with mine, ordered from eBay used and it's already a year old. But it came with Black without any updates installed, just like it was released a year ago.

    I just upgraded to a 1520 at Christmas, started on an 822, then to a 521, and now a unlocked 1520. What an awesome experience, the screen is beautiful and it was a bit of a shock having a 6" screen at first but a few day in its like I have always had it.
    My wife has the 1020 and my oldest daughter has the 925. All the phones we have suit or individual styles for use, my wife is a professional photographer and daughter is a senior in high school.
    Enjoy the phone and Happy New Year.

    Depends... What Model, when was it boxed...

    Just use the Lumia Software Recovery Tool if it boots up Black and you'll get Cyan Flashed in a jiffy.

    Just ordered it new from AT&T yesterday.

    Tough decision on black or white but went with black.

    Once you get accustomed to typing on the big screen its almost impossible to type on a smaller phone. I've had my 1520 for 4 weeks now and am loving it. I've had strangers ask me what phone it is because they are amazed at how it looks. Most people ask if its running android and I smile and say no, its windows phone and wink at them. Make them feel like its an exclusive club to be in.

    920 to 925 to 830 and pulled the trigger on 1520 and so far love it. I was palming a basketball at age 9 so this is heaven for my big paws. Can't imagine how hard it will be to go back to smaller screen if I need to.

    Ok, off to a rough start. 1520 arrived today from AT&T but I'm extremely skeptical of this packaging. It's in a generic AT&T box, does not say Nokia or Lumia or 1520 anywhere. Open it up and it's an empty box (meaning no compartments) with the phone in a little plastic bag, stickers are on. And then a couple of little manual sized papers and the charger.

    Packaged it all back up and will be at the store first thing in the morning. Pretty annoyed too.

    How do you guys experience the battery life of the Lumia 1520. I recently got mine and I love the size and everything but the battery seems drain to fast. For example writing in WhatsApp kills the battery.
    I have been owning one for one year now and battery is still good. Lasts about one full day to 1.5 days based on usage.
    Normal usage for me is
    - Display almost always on (mid brightness) reading news online
    - Sending messages/emailing (dozens, in the 50, 60 a day)
    - Two or three short calls a day (less than 5 mins per call)
    - Pictures all the time, short videos
    - Listening to music for two hours while at the gym.

    Sometimes battery dies around 11pm from 7am when i put the phone on with 100% charge. Sometimes it lasts till the next day around 12pm.
    If i play games like Asphalt etc. all the above doesn't apply. Battery dies relatively quick (4 or 5 hours).
    Nice, phone, nice OS, too many missing things so now i compensate with a Galaxy Note 4.

    But isn't that normal for AT&T? I'm not American, but all unboxing videos I saw so far from their phones only included this standard AT&T box without any accessories.

    I don't know...this is my first ATT phone. I thought it would at least say what phone it is on the box.
