    Hopefully, someone here was lucky enough to get my 1520. It was absolutely pristine and running Windows 10. I babied that phone with love, but my reason to go away from Windows was bitter sweet. In the end is was about the apps, I simply couldn't wait anymore for MS to catch up. And everywhere you see advertising apps, Windows is invisible. Windows 10 mobile is an afterthought and seemingly the movent has gone downhill. Yes the major stuff is there, and it works for the rest of the family, but not for me. As for the phones, seems to be trending down. What I I loved about the 1520 was It still seems new for its age, the hardware and the great camera and 4 mics for recording video and sounding great during playback..which for the iphone, you need to spend 150 for a Shure mic attachment to get that quality. Anyway, that's my story I'm sticking to it. Good luck.

    Well heck, it's running the SD 800 which is still one beast of a processor. 2 gb or ram I think. It's still an ok phone. Windows Phone flagships age well, unlike Androids that slow with age.

    2 years and still going strong. 128gb microsd and a fantastic camera. I have all the apps and games I need. There is no phone like the lumia 1520. Not for me, atleast.

    I love mine but it can be kinda buggy at times (even after resetting to 8.1 though far more stable than W10M Preview) A little annoying. Probably gonna stick with my special edition 930 for now.

    But man... it's still a sweet phone.

    Yes it is a beast of a phone and running very well even after almost 2 years. Now running on Windows Mobile 10. It is also notable that it is one of the 3 phones that were only planned for Windows Mobile 10 upgrade.

    The camera is one of the best for day time photography. Here is a picture taken today with it.

    Yeah the camera is amazing. 930 is the same. One thing I wish for with this new Surface Phone is that they keep the great camera of the Lumia line.

    Curious, what bugs do you have with your 1520?? Mine had been pretty much flawless, never left 8.1 with it, tried multiple W10 builds with my 640XL and that was buggy and didn't want to deal with bugs on my 1520 so I've kept it stock.

    I loved my 1520 until the w10m install. Right now the phantom button clicks issue is driving me mad. Happens weekly if I'm lucky, but almost daily is the norm. Putting it in sleep mode and then opening it right back up usually takes care of it. Reboot if not.

    Just traded my 1020+50 for a 1520 and couldn't be happier. So much snappier in everything, great screen and doesn't feel as huge as I thought I might. The updated Lumia camera is great, the basic camera quality definitely a noticeable step down (much more noise in low light) but with the speed and extra features will probably get better shots most of the time. Does make me sad there is no updated 1020 with fast hardware though as it would be truly amazing.

    So... No Glance, no SD slot and dubious battery endurance. How is that a better device?

    Try turning off "Double tap to wake" and see if that solves the problem.

    Still loving my 1520 after a week but the occasional screen going crazy and random Cortana launches were getting annoying. Was ready to open it up but didn't have a small enough Torx. Installed the W10 preview instead and much to my surprise it seems to have solved, or at least greatly reduced, the problems.

    Edit - So that was speaking much too soon. Still have the problem. Makes me wonder why it was okay for a while after the update...
