    I have had one since late 2014 as my daily driver. Seeing how well 10 runs on it, the lack luster physical appearance of 950 and that ATT is not carrying 950xl I opted to buy a 2nd 1520 just for back up a few weeks back. If the next flagship Windows phone is not a true replacement for the 1520 screen wise, and if app gap doesn't improve I may have to peace out in 2017. I like my 6" screen. I'm giving it one more year.

    Still using my Yellow 1520 purchased back in March 2014, running Windows 10 Mobile. Pretty much my daily driver.

    Yes. For some strange reason, one battery lasts infinitely longer than the other.

    Still have mine. Bought Jan 2014. Replaced battery last month as a full charge will only give me 5 hours. I'm now back to having it turned on to more than a day. Happy again.

    I'm still running Windows Phone 8.1. The Nokia Lumia 1520 is among the greatest phones of all time as far as I'm concerned. I love this phone!!!!

    Just bought my 3rd one from ebay (first ever 3rd time buy for me), totally overpriced but worth it, still stands out among all WP devices, even the new ones (which I actually returned on Saturday). Long Live The Unicorn Lumia 1520.3! :)

    I had thought about getting one do to the fact Verizon wasn't getting any higher end windows phones. Thus having to switch to att, but wasn't sure the 950xl was gonna be there too besides the 950. Why it wasn't is beyond me and I know the 1520 is a superb phone but it wad the size. The phones usually go in my pants pocket anyway and I don't wear tight jeans bit still. Hindsight I think I would've went with the 1520 instead of the 950.

    I actually JUST got my first 1520 two days ago. Used from some guy on CL. I know, I know...risky buying a phone off of CL but even riskier if it's a years old phone. Luckily for me it's working out like a champ and the latest Preview Release is working flawless (after subsequent hard reset.) I traded him a practically brand new Moto X Pure Edition. I think I honestly got a bit of a raw deal but this phone is in immaculate condition and I'd been eyeing it for a LONG time after sitting on a Lumia 640 and L1020 for a year and a half.

    My very first Windows Phone was the Samsung Focus Flash and it's been my favorite OS ever since. Just something so inherently elegant about it. My adoration for it only strengthened when I grew up and bought an Xbox, leaving my PS roots in the past. That being said, I still believe the Lumia 1520 is STILL one of the best Windows Phone money can buy, probably THE best WP Nokia ever created, blow for blow. And it will likely always hold the crown for the last truly great Lumia device, by which all other Lumias are measured.

    I splurged on a 950XL, while I liked having a new Windows Phone, I find the screen and most of the features very underwhelming compared to my 1520. For one, I find the full HD screen on the 1520 to be sooooo much better.

    Yeah now that I've finally got this puppy, I see no reason to get one of the newer Lumias. Not for a while, anyway.

    Yep, the 1520 was what got me away from android, I've had 4 of them (first one broke screen on first day, second one broken camera when I was sleep it fell off bed, third one my son threw it on rocks and busted screen, fourth one alive and kicking). I don't like the red color because it's a fingerprint magnet, all mine have been yellow. Id love to have the green one and add it to my mobile phone collection.

    Really? I personally like 1080p for the battery savings, but I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that 1080p actually looks better.

    I still have mine, two years and counting.

    In spite of contemplating getting a Lumia 950 XL by the end of the year, I do not think I will get rid of my Lumia 1520.

    Will try to post pics later on.

    I still have mine, nearly two years now. This is the longest I've ever had a phone. I usually get antsy after a year or so and start eyeing up a new one, but I love my L1520 so much that I'm still really happy with it. Got the red variant, and I bought it second hand from CEX, and it's just been brilliant. I run the slow ring, and I find the experience is wonderfully smooth. It's flawless really. The only niggles are no continuum and no NFC payments. But I can live with that. The recent releases (950, 950XL, etc) are so uninspired design wise, so I think I'll be using my L1520 till it dies.

    I just got a 1520 to replace cracked 640 last week. $100 on EBay with just a few very faint scratches. I'm loving it so far, and the camera crushed my wife's and our neighbors' when we took pics of our kids on their first day of kindergarten this morning.

    I bought mine off Swappa a few months ago to replace my old 925 because I simply loved the huge screen and relative thinness of the 1520. In many ways, it still holds up well even next to my Nexus 6P, and even my Nexus 5.

    I do wish the MS would update the firmware, or whatever is needed in order to support NFC payments. My old Nexus 5 does it perfectly, and it's not like Microsoft has a ton of compatible phones at the moment. If they want people to use it, limiting it to just these newer phones that haven't sold mass quantities is not the way to go.
