    My Lumia 620 just died. I was hoping to keep it until next flagship comes with Windows 10, but unfortunately it died yesterday.

    So, I'm gonna buy a new phone, probably a 1520 or a 830.

    Although 1520 is 1 year old, it seems that it is still the best flagship out there (It has everything 930 has, also it has Glance). What do you think? Should I buy 1520?

    Also, I've read about some touch issues on 1520. Are those still present in Denim? was it isolated to first batches of 1520s, or current batches have it too?

    Thanks

    Update: Now I'm thinking about getting a 930. It looks better IMO. However, I'll miss Glance. I don't know if I should go for 930, or buy 1520 (which has glance).

    I have two 1520 and use to have a 920. What u really need to consider is the size. I think u should hold one in your hand before buying it. I love it and cant go back to a smaller phone. I broke the screen and had it changed in Nokia after that the touch issues was gone! Hope it helps and sorry for my English.

    Thank you guys :)

    What about touch issues? How often does it happen?

    I experience it very rarely.
    The touch issue is mainly due to its big screen size which tends to bend more easily.

    Can you define "very rarely"? Because my 620 had serious touch problems; and now "very rarely" means once a day to me lol :)

    Also, did firmware updates do anything to make this better?

    Go for the 1520. If the size is an issue, I suggest go for the 930 then.

    Got my 1520 almost 2 weeks ago.. I've had no problem at all.. The only issue you should consider is the size.. Came from a galaxy note 2 and it still feels quite large in my hand. Other than that it is a great device.. If the size us an issue for you and you don't mind lossing the SD slot you should consider 930.. The glance feature is not that important, at least not for me.

    Now I think 930 might be a better choice for me. The aluminum frame of 930 looks great :)

    However, I will miss Glance. Not sure if I should buy 930 or 1520 now...

    Battery life and heating issues are the common issues with the 930. If the 1520 we're more or less the same price here in Spain then I would have bought it. But money was a little tight so paying 200 more for a device wasn't part of the bigger picture! Haha. I can't wait to see what Microsoft puts out there because I would like better battery life and also an external memory slot! 😃 I'd read the threads first though to make sure you're ok with the current issues.

    I'm also about to switch from my 2 year old Note2 to the 1520. Yes, it's bigger but I like bigger! I remember how everyone thought my Note 2 was HUGE and I'd tell them.. "Use it for a few days and you'll think it's normal and every other phone is tiny!"

    Lumia 930

    5 inches: so better to hold, easier to carry, better ppi
    Has Corning Gorilla Glass 3
    More appealing design ( Metal frame )
    No Expandable storage but i think 32GB is more than enough. U can always backup your stuff to your computer once in a while.
    Battery 2420 mAh


    Lumia 1520
    6 inches : Difficult to carry and use, lesser ppi compared to 930 but if u r a fan of big screens than its great!! Personally i think 5 inches is enough.
    Corning Gorilla Glass 2 ; 930 has got Corning Gorilla Glass 3
    Expandable storage
    battery 3400 mAh

    Glance: For me personally, Not a deciding factor.
    Personally i would have picked L930.
    Good news if your from India :The Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 are discounted by Rs. 7,000 in India | Windows Central

    Hope i helped you.
    Btw what happened to your Lumia 620??

    Get a 630 or 635 and wait for MWC and then buy something later this year and keep the 6xx phone as a backup. Good luck with your search.
