    Well it's true on some apps though.

    Care to share what apps you are using?

    I've never heard such a thing. I have a 1520 and apps are updated just as fast as my brothers 930. When an app developer releases an update on the Windows Phone store, all phones can get it at the same time.

    No that's wrong information,person who told this he has zero knowledge about WP because the apps are updated on all phones from the 520 to latest flagship 930...and according to my knowledge 1520 is best WP...it has more features than 930 (like SD card; 6" screen)
    And 1520 supports almost all apps

    If you are getting a Factory Unlocked Country Variant RM-937 you have no worries about Firmware not being as up to date as any...

    Which is true... Hopefully WP 10 will make the transition of apps much more easy.

    I keep saying the same thing give it time. Android will become obsolete as people generally get drawn to the brands they know have a long history. Bill Gates had to start somewhere and Steve Jobs was his competition be patient. Stand out from the crowd and let your colour filled Lumia back cover be the one be seen from great distance instead of blending in like Android or Apple.

    While Window Phone does not feature the number of apps that App Store and Play Store offers, I have found that what is available in the Windows Store is more than adequate my needs.

    The real question to ask is what apps or games are you looking for particularly?

    Lumia 1520 in itself doesn't have old apps, but if one were to compare WP and iOS apps, you could say that some are a bit outdated. Also you should do what YOU want not what others want.

    I don't even want to ask what phones your friends are using... but quite possibly a phone that hasn't been updated to the latest OS. He is also very wrong, all apps get updates at the same time, only app availability is restricted based on model & location. That aside, pick a phone you like... if apps are all that matter then I suppose WP is not for you.
    Also, if this is your first Windows Phone, then I would suggest going for something a little cheaper to try out the OS & would also give you some waiting time as a new flagship is supposedly coming by the end of the year.

    My 1520 is running Denim and my apps are fairly regularly updated. The actual truth is that the 1520 functions so well that there doesn't seem to be a compelling need for continual updating. There are a few hitches and glitches when multi-apps are each using BT, but that is tolerable. If you can handle the form factor, the 1520 is a terrific and utterly dependable daily driver. My only hesitation would be that I would want the 32g model with on-board Qi charging. And then there's the hope that a new flagship XL will come out before too long which might be an upgrade to the 1520, spec wise.

    Your friends statement is actually two fold.
    First is the assertion of is the Windows phone ecosystem a good OS to invest in? That is were the app comparison really matters. I'd agree with your friend on certain apps. Of course the trending apps like Instagram, Twitter, and others have gotten rare updates while their iOS and Android counterparts are been updated rather recently. Now if you're all about first party apps, then you may want to consider another OS, however I'll implore you to try some of the third party renditions, and you just might find they work as good if not better then parent apps they emulate. Take 6Tag, or a couple of Twitter client apps for example. How familiar are you with the Windows phone OS will go a long way to determining how you'll like the 1520.
    Second is how does the 1520 stack up against other Windows phones? Again this is based on how you're going to be using it. I've had my 1520 for year now, and to be honest no other windows phone really rivals it in terms of display, processor, memory, battery life, storage capacity, or camera combined. The biggest deterrent may be that MSFT has recently discontinued selling the 1520 which implicates there may be a replacement coming at some point. I've actually been intrigued by the 640XL which although has reduced specs, they are still respectable, and it's the newest phone out with preconceived Windows 10 for phones planning into the build.
    Ultimately if you can get one at a good price, you won't be disappointed. I am going to wait for a more equivalent replacement for the 1520 because to be honest, there's really nothing out there right now that can stack up to it.

    You have to try and make decisions of your own based on your analysis and judgement.

    That's when you get what you aspire for.

    What the others said... And.. Go to an AT&T store or another store like the Microsoft store and TRY the phone... Generally people always *think* the windows phones are outdated or lack features.. I was a long time Android user... Got the Note 2 and my daughter wanted the Nokia 822 like 2 years ago... The Note 2 was the best Android phone I ever used... reliable, tons of features... one problem.. after two years my daughters USB port went out on her 822 so she had to take a trip and didn't have a way to charge her phone on the road so I let her use my beloved Note2 because I could charge her extra battery here at home so I used her phone and she used mine for a couple days... After using it just a couple days I realized "This low end windows phone in MANY ways was light years ahead of my Note2!" when she got back and gave me my phone back I started counting down the days for my contract to end so I could dump the Note and get a 1520. A week after my contract with Verizon ended, I picked up a new 1520 and have had it for a few months now. MUCH better phone than the Samsung Android phone. So you never know.. Give it a whirl.. you might like it.

    Just like your friends don't choose your clothes, likewise, your friends can't choose what phone will go with your taste and expectations. Try the phone and then decide. Agreed that apps are somewhat important, but the windows store is not that empty. Most common used apps are there, even though some are third-parties.
