    I've got a Lumia 1520, 930 & 1020. I love my 1520 too. I love the size and battery. I do miss the image quality in pics on my 1020 though.

    The 1520 has glance, camera improvements with denim and hey Cortana. It is the WP flagship and an amazing device.

    Of course it is better. At the very least, I see lesser Resuming / Reloading nonsenses on 1520 as compared to the much slower 1020 running WP8.

    Try to get a Class 10 card. The faster the card, the better and reduces lag on your phone. Try to get as much storage as possible. You can store pretty much everything on your sd card such as photos, music and apps, so more storage the better ;) it is also more future proof.

    I'd think that would be for Apps on the card more than the actual card. Think about it a moment. The card is constantly being accessed for frequently used Apps... That would naturally be more battery intensive than internal memory.

    I keep all my Apps stored on my phone and use the SD card foe media. I've got 32GB on board so there really is no problem for me working it this way.

    My SD card recommend. Known Name Brand. If you never heard of it, stay away from it. I've a San Disk 64GB Ultra Plus microSDXC UHS-1 class and no worries. Format 64 GB and higher as exFAT, 32GB and lower as FAT32 (or just let the phone format it for you, it knows what it is doing).

    I'm a light to moderate user and regularly get 2 to 3 days battery life. On a recent 32 day trip overseas I used my 1520.3 as a power user + with about 100 pics a day average, sometimes video as well, web searches, texting, Skype, navigation, Bing Translator, etc. etc. My battery lasted me each and every day for 12 or more hours in the field except on 2 days where I resorted to a 2800 mAh Halo recharge stick.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately some of us do have it draining fast. I have wifi on for most of the day and Bluetooth and phone doesn't last the full day with moderate use.

    Before we blame wifi and Bluetooth, the size of the battery should suffice to keep these settings on. Or am I wrong here?

    What brand of SD card are you using? Do you have apps on the SD card or just media(music, videos etc)?

    Of course!

    I just copy a bunch of my music to my SD card. You can either use the Windows Phone app for the PC, or just drag and drop your music to the "music" folder in Windows Explorer (File Explorer).

    To "stream" your music from your Xbox music account requires you to have an "Xbox music pass" I believe. (It used to anyway.. I don't know if they've changed anything recently) I don't use that personally.. I refuse to pay a monthly fee to play my music, but that's just me.

    AgentMikey,

    I have a class 10 Scandisk 128gig card. On it I store all my apps along with video and games.

    Earlier on this thread, it was posted that having apps on the internal memory will help with battery performance. I will have to try that and see how that goes ๐Ÿ˜Š. Makes sense of having to access the SD card all the time can cause a drain on power.

    Then again...I do not use my phone to play games all day long-99% is emailing, surfing, calls, and windowsphonecentral app ....

    Please update when you determine if having apps on the SD card causes batt drain. I just got my card and only put photos and videos there...and I placed Fav photos on the phone (not SD) so the live tile won't draw from the SD...hopefully my 1520s amazing batt life will stay amazing!

    I just got a 1520. Though I am located in the UK, I have the HK variant, which I bought from an online store. The price was very reasonable and much lower than what I saw available on eBay and other such places.

    I should also mention that I was up for a phone upgrade and I had bought the 830 to replace my trusty 720. I also liked the 830 a lot. But I also wanted a bigger screen and thus my interest in the 1520. I was a bit apprehensive about the size of the 1520, but after a day of initial awkwardness, it has grown on my and I am not sure I will be able to switch to a smaller sized phone after this - the benefits are immense in so far as my needs are concerned. I use my phone principally as a data device and only secondarily as a phone, which is also why my SIM-only contract has limited minutes but unlimited data and tethering arrangements. I enjoy surfing on the web, reading, going on Reddit, visiting sites like WC, among others, and other suchlike activities on the 1520.

    While it is true that the 1520 has yet to get the Denim update (the 830 came with Denim or some element of it), I have put it on PfD and it is working just fine. I have not yet experienced any of the tapping/ screen issues thus far and the battery life has been more than satisfactory.

    There is one thing that I do find funny about the 1520 though. I was comparing it to the 720 and it struck me that the 1520 is a giant-sized 720!!!!

    All in all, I really like the 1520!
