    Sorry I haven't replied sooner but I appear to have fixed the problems with my phone. All it took was a(nother) screen replacement!
    I replaced the screen a few months ago but never connected the problems to the replacement, however after having to replace the screen again this week the problems have gone and haven't returned - yet.
    I guess I must have got a faulty screen the first time, although it worked fine.

    These are hardware issues related to the earliest production 1520's. I had to have two 1520's replaced and my third one is from April 2014 and has run smooth since.

    I've had to replace my 1520 about 4 times due to hardware issues but to be honest, I don't mind as long as I get a new working phone in the process.

    How can I find out which date my 1520 is manufactured ? Just to be sure i dont have an old one. It shows first few phantom touch/tap issues unfortunately. Problem is that, at least here in Germany, the 1520 has become a total rarity. You hardly get it anywhere anymore, most in 2nd hand actually. I still have no idea why the Lumia 1520 seems to be the only Nokia Lumia Model today that you cant get as much anymore than the other Lumia models. Has the industry removed it for these issues with the Hardware or why is that a Phone I can hardly get anywhere anymore ? As a comparison. Even if Samsung would come out with the Note 5 this August, i still could buy the Note 2 in stores. Why is that and not with the 1520 ?

    If you go to Settings>Extras+info and scroll to the very end. You will see "Build Creation Date". That should be it.
    I bought my Lumia 1520 October last year. Back then, the 'Build Creation Date' for my phone was August, 2014 (Can't remember exact date). But I did hard reset in February this year. SO when I check this now, it says 2/2/2015. So if you haven't done any hard resets, hopefully that will display when your phone was created but I cannot guarantee this 100%.

    After I returned the one I got last week because of the Phantom Touch, I got the new one today and it says 4/12/2014 as creation date. It wasnt reset prior because its a brandnew device.

    Build creation date is the day your firmware was finalized. It has nothing to do with the date of manufacture.

    You got to be kidding me. Today I got my 2nd device, I already sent one back (2nd Hand) today because of the phantom touch bug. This time I got a new one, and after doing all the updates, store software installs etc. it just went offline. I was doing something in the mail app when it happend. It just went black. I pressed the ON button, nothing happend. Long, short, even longer etc. for over 10 minutes, nothing happend. Naturally i was starting to get a little angry, something happening to another device of that Model. So I called the company I bought it from. While doing that I attached the phone to the charging adapter, thought it might help. Also nothing happend. Then, while I was on the phone complaining about the phone, it went ON again by its own. Battery was still full. How the hell can that happen ? Is that a bug of WP 8.1 or is this device also broken ?

    You can look at the original box for that info but there aren't any known dialer codes to get that info.

    It could be a software glitch. In cases like these usually try with a soft reset. If that doesn't work then I would be worried (or hard reset before worrying)

    I have a relatively early build 1520 (bought around 11/2013), and the "Hardware Revision Number" is 4.1.0.0. I don't really know how or if that relates to the date it was built, but maybe someone with a newer phone could compare it to their version, might offer a clue.

    Sounds like a hardware problem to me, not a WP 8.1 problem. Maybe they sold you a refurb or something.

    I really don't know. So far it only happend once and not since. Will try rhe device for a few more days and see if more issues arise. If so, I will return it and think about maybe not getting that device again. Not that I really want a different device, but with 2 devices of the same Model with issues on both, that would be really a sign for me that this phone, as cool as it is, is back luck k. But I really hope things will get better in the next days.

    Cheers

    When I first bought my unlocked 1520 the only problem it had was the swipe/tap mix up that a lot of other 1520s had. Subsequent updates seem to have introduced many more problems to the point where I am embarrassed to use the phone in public or even let a member of my family use it.

    Blah blah waffle
    Mine has worked perfectly fine since day one so DAMN WELL GET YOURS FIXED and stop waffling
