    So I have a orange 930. Hotness! I love it's size, screen, camera, and overall build quality. What I don't like in the no LTE. Now I bought the phone like that knowing that would be the case. Still knowing is different than experiencing. The lag is really bothering me and I'm wondering if I made a mistake.

    Before that I had a 1520 and LOVED it. The only reason I moved on was I had one with the tap screen issue. And it was pretty large though I find myself missing the largeness sometimes. I'm seriously thinking about going back to the 1520.

    Should I do it? I'm torn here.

    As a 1520 owner myself... Go for it. I am very happy with my 1520 since 2013 when I purchased this beast.

    Lag? You mean in data speeds?

    Made up my mind. I'm doing it. I loved the 1520 :). Now I have to decide to spend the extra do for an international version with Qi Wireless. Once you have wireless charging its hard to go back honestly.

    I know what you mean, I had a L920 briefly with Qi charging and luved it, I modded a glass bedside table with the Qi charger taped under the glass table and it STILL CHARGED MY PHONE WITH NO PROBLEMS! so then I bought a L1520 AT&T version with no wireless charging and missed the charging so badly that I went and bought the L1520 international version with the Qi charging and LUVING the wireless charging again! thankfully I got a great deal on it and now I have 2 L1520 to use! LOL

    Yeah my 930 currently has it and I love it.

    I think most people don't really understand how great it is.

    Like all those iPhone users.

    Colors do you have? I had a yellow 1520 and now I'm thinking about Matte Black. There seem to be lots of red phones out but I dunno about the gloss. And the white just doesn't do it for me.

    Just curious, what are your current data speeds? If your already around 3Mbps without LTE, you wont notice a whole lot except on large files. Everyone loves to brag they get +20Mbps LTE, but for most things you don't need anywhere near that speed on a phone.

    my AT&T is black and my international one is yellow! not crazy about the yellow color but I got such a good deal and it was in such MINT (like brand new) condition and I wanted the Qi wireless charging that I couldn't pass up on it... so I got it. happy that I did too!

    Not sure. Here is all I know. ALL my streaming video lags. And connection to internet is much slower. Never had this problem before on 1520.

    Try a speed test App. I mean, if you're gonna buy a new phone, it wont matter. But maybe it will tell you something. It's good to know anyways. ;)

    Nope... My phone settings are what they've always been. And my there placed I go are the same as with my 1520. I knew moving to this was a risk but I didn't know how much. My wife calls me a phone junkie! Oh well...back to the 1520. Sad caused I liked this phone. Though the edges do hurt the hand kinda when holding for a while.

    well what is the original carrier that it was locked too? and what are you using it on now? maybe you just have to goto the settings and set the VPN I think it's called.. that's what I had to do with my L920... it doesn't make sense your L930 cant get good speeds like the L1520... but honestly I think the L1520 is a better phone IMHO

    Anybody have a Red 1520? I'm wondering how the gloss looks. Can't seem to find any other color affordable in the RM-937.

    I've never owned a 930. But I have owned a 920 and thought nothing could ever replace that phone for me. Until I got my first 1520. Everything looks better on the 1520. Having it made it easier to retire my 920. Still my jewel but my daily driver is my 1520. It is a big A phone and it takes a bit to acclimate to having it but once you get there, you wonder how you went so long without it.

    Update. So I got a white 1520 unlocked ATT (just couldn't find non red RM-937). I'll have it n a few days. Looked at the white again and really liked it so I went with it. Honestly, I wish I never sold my 1520 2 months ago but maybe this one won't have that double tap screen foolishness. Excited!

    Good idea. But consider what you miss and what you gain instead.
    Also consider you will RARELY need a QI to charge because you phone's battery is large enough to handle what you need every day and at the most hard conditions, with a single charge a day. I personally do not recommend Qi because I've heard that it is a bit harmful for your battery life.
