    Then by all means get him a note. Then learn these two lines you will repeat over and over.

    "Well, you wanted a pen. Live with it."
    "You wanted the crayon phone, live with it."

    You will get to say these alot.

    I am in favor of getting a 1520 over its inferior counterpart Note 3, if I can get that stylus and a software

    I had those issues and it drove me to hate the phone. Especially on days where I've had a bad day, maaaaan did it ever get on my nerves. I miss everything else about that phone. I have the 930 now, just wish it was bigger!
    If it's any consolation, when I had the W10 Preview on my 1520, the phantom touches were gone and the slow screen rotation was greatly improved. I rolled back to Denim after 2 weeks because it's really not ready for its airworthiness certificate yet. As soon as I did, the phantom touches returned. Oh well, the time's getting closer for the public release.
    If you are very careful with the phone and baby it you won't have the touchscreen issues, it's not a QC issue it's a design flaw that made the phone much more fragile compare to smaller phones like the 930 or Icon. I have phantom touch issue after nearly a year of use and Microsoft refuse to service it in the US because mine (1520.3) is not a US market phone, still I would buy this phone again in a hear beat, but this time around I would baby it like an iPhone 6 Plus.

    Thanks a lot for your comments guys!

    Full Win10 on the 1520 is going to be an amazing experience. Who wouldn't want that?

    Still worth buying? For me, definitely. Just bought a nearly new 16 GB AT&T 1520 to replace my 920 (still in great shape) while I wait for the new flagship. Had been waiting for the 640XL but decided to go for 1520. Wanted to try out the large format and that has turned out to be a big plus so far. Still porting photos and music to the phone but am impressed by the overall performance, camera and screen. I am experiencing the slow rotation issue but I can live with it. The Miracast feature is very handy for photo/video viewing.

    I know that, but, my dad is not a technical enthusiastic like me. He will always prefer hand writing over typing. So he will prefer a good stylus (pressure sensitive if possible), and an application, so that anything that he types, automatically converts into digital.
    I don't have a Note, but I have a stylus using the same tech in my SP2. I've also tried capacitive styluses. It seems like your dad would be a lot better off with the Note if he cares more about written notes than the OS. Writing on a normal phone with the fat crayon stylus is very tedious and awkward. It's actually still terrible on a full size iPad (I tried the new OneNote version). There's no substitute for a real stylus like the Note has, it will be incomparably better than trying to use a capacitive stylus with a 1520. They aren't even close, and the difference is even bigger on a small device like a phone. Also, capacitive palm rejection is rubbish. With a digitizer, a device knows to only pay attention to the pen when it's near the screen.

    I would love it if they made a 1520 successor with a stylus, but for now the Note is the only real option for handwriting IMO.

    Unfortunately 1520 is out of production, and none of the dealer has it in stock, except for few stores by AT&T :(

    I vote yes. I have the Note 3 as a secondary phone now. (started having some reset issues with it that could be an app issue for all I know-not faulting the device-it's a nice device). But I got back into the Windows scene again-using a Surface tablet and a 2 in 1 so wanted to try a Windows phone again many years later. (had a Windows Mobile phone we're talking 10 plus years ago along with the Treo days). Totally different platform now of course. I got it about two months ago at the Microsoft Store for $99 as I'm in the US and my one line was upgradeable. At the time the phone was still at Best Buy for $199. I chose it for the size and I love the thing! The 16 GB memory with a SD card expandable works just fine. The 2GB RAM is no problem-runs just as fast as my Note 3-I don't have any issues. I also can see the screen better in direct sunlight. I can live without the stylus. I don't use the stylus as often as I thought I would though I can see where I has its advantages. But I am a tech lover and I bought this phone late in the game of this phone's life span and feel my phone is as up to date as anyone else's out there. Just as quick, good pictures, good call quality, same everything, great screen, but I like the way Windows does it.

    Update: Been using my 1520 for 10 days now and I'm very satisfied. Phone performs very well. I use navigation everyday and I drive for 2 hrs while playing music on my car. Yea screen is turned off and I follow the voice navigation but when i come back home i have 70% battery remaining. I plug my phone for charging every night because i had that habit with my 920. Otherwise this phone needs charge once in 2 days.

    New in box will be hard to come by and most in the US will be 16GB. The only consolation to this is the phone will not suffer "GAPPS Bloat" so space doesn't constantly disappear with each google app update as android phone do.

    I bought it 10 days ago.
    The only think I can say, if you like windows phone platform BUY IT!
    It's simply the best windows phone right now.
    I have to admit i was tempted to buy a 930, but the 1520 has glance screen (i use it a lot, i'd have missed it too much) and far bigger battery (It is just awesome, mine reached 40% after 48 hours using).
    I came from a lumia 620 (3.8") and i was scared that the 6" would have been too much for me; after 10 days using it I can only say my next phone won't be smaller than 5", the experience is just epic.

    I say yes. I had to replace my out of commission 1520.3 and I just bought a green refurbished one today on eBay for around $250.00. I was going to wait for the 640xl to hold me over until whatever xl comes out this fall, but once I found 1520's for around the same price, to me its not even close. for the same money as a new 640xl, I much rather a refurbished 1520. it just not even close. I can't downgrade. going from a 1520.3 to a AT&T is about as far as I'm willing to go.

    Absolutely. When I was on the TP, the phantom touches were gone. The snail pace screen rotation courtesy of Denim was also greatly reduced.
