    Hi guys.

    Finally managed to get hold of a green lumia 1520. Lovingly called her beast! imageuploadedbywindows-central-forums1423091078.503583.jpg

    Have to say Im very impressed. Coming from an iPhone 6 plus the size isn't too shocking lol.

    Contrary to popular belief I don't find a significant difference in weight at all. If anything the lumia feels a little better in the hand.

    The keyboard on the screen is miles better as well. I have less typos.

    Amazing phone and really understated. Updated to denim and she's working buttery smooth. Looking forward to windows phone 10.

    Slowly making the migration from Apple.

    Lumia 1520 - check
    Surface pro 3 - check
    Xbox one - gotta get past the missus.
    But almost a check.

    Otherwise thanks for all the great threads. It really helped in making my decision easier. The hardest but was trying to source one.

    Mit.

    How do you like it in comparison to 6➕ and ios

    I like both ios and the iphone 6 plus. The build quality is really good and the os just flies. Battery life is amazing as well. Im a bigger fan of wondows though so ive been hunting around for the 1520 for a while. I like switching between phones so ill still keep the iphone but for now windows phone is feeling all the love lol

    The first time I picked up the new iPhone I new instantly it would NOT work for me (not that I wanted it anyway). The darn thing was slippery as a banana peel. Once upon a time I had a really nice phone but it was way to thin and way to light. I just couldn't get a safe grip on that bad boy so I got rid of it as soon as possible. Pity because it was otherwise very nice. The Lumia's are far easier to hold AND nicer to look at. Oh and WP OS is vastly more entertaining than iOS. Just my opinion though.

    Congrats I envy you as I'm looking for a green Lumia 1520 for UK. I would call mine the Hulk Phone if I ever got it 😁

    The Green Hornet never takes selfies with an orange or red or black Lumia . . .

    None taken. I just tell those who hate on my Lime Sherbet Lumia that the green signifies the jelly they're feeling.

    Fellow green owner here! Congrats!

    Yeah, green isn't for everyone, but I think Nokia picked an amazing shade of it for the recent releases. As a confession, I have a green 635, 1520, and now a green 830. In short, they need to pick new colors so I stop going after them, haha.

    I have to say I am envious of all that green. Hoping the next flagship comes out in this. I don't think I could go back to standard black again 😊

    Likewise! I know Nokia would essentially have specific colors for the year, but I really love this green and hope they continue to use it. Give me a 1530 with a design similar to the 830 and I will be there on day one.

    I think the green and orange colors they introduced recently are the most attractive phone colors yet.

    No way man. I love both the green and the red. Colors say a lot about you just don't ask me what green and red say.

    That might be true if I was 18 or 19. But in my case I think getting older has made me want to add more color and bling to my life - to "brighten" it up if you will. My best friend is constantly buying black. Nice color but very boring. Ya know? When you get to a certain age, you just want to do what you want to do with no explanations needed.

    I had a yellow 1520... Loved it! But much to orange 930. After 7 months the double tap issues and the size just got bothersome for me. Enjoy!
