    wow not bad :P.... I can go a whole day on my 830 ...but at 8 I have to charge
    It depends, really. Both phones I can get two nights worth of standby in and still have power to run well during the day. The 1+1 has the newer chips and more RAM but the 1520 has the lighter OS so it works out to be the same.

    but the question is ...what stuff will your 1320 get and not get

    Sd 800 would be getting a bit more stuff, rest all the phones would be getting the same stuff. Doesn't matter much to me.

    Is there such a thing as a lesser evil when discussing ISPs in the US?

    Just thought I would inform those who have been helping me decide about what phone to get next. I think I may have put the idea of buying a new phone aside for now. I'm still thinking but even the OPO is not really that appealing.

    I knew it. You made a right decision.
    Phones are boring now. I've totally lost interest in everything.

    I'm still probably getting an Android though. By the time a good WP comes out I'll be a couple of years on Android...

    Boo! You copped out! Lol.

    Seriously, phones lost that wow factor and appeal for me years ago. They are now what they always were in my eyes...tools to accomplish specific tasks. Maybe that's why I still changed them seeming as often as I have...looking for that one that best fit my needs in the current moment.

    Truth be told, the market is saturated right now. and the global economy is still ****ty, so it is harder for people to change phones easily in certain markets. Even I hardly buy mine new...i go for high mint and since I keep my phones that way, the cash I doll out per phone is small.

    So if you can keep putting along with your 920, go for it. I still suggest the 1+1 if your phone goes on the fritz and you want something to use in the meantime and still not be committal. I like being off contract. As much as I like the Z3, I'd never buy it through t-mobile here.

    I've lost all WOW in phones. I don't get people who freak out over them personally.

    The main reason I wanted a new phone was due to the L920 battery, I just can't take it any longer. That and WP apps simply aren't up to scratch as I'd like. Then there's the new 'features' of the phones and WP is way behind with some things I'd like to have.

    So that's where I stand currently. I have to think some more though. I might change my mind at some point and just buy something. I'm a bit fickle. :P

    I personally think all new phones are way over priced.

    It is nice to have platforms that I like equally. Having used the 1520, I'm reminded of why I like WP and can tolerate it as a daily driver if I'm not asking it to do much. If the ONE for windows had a better camera, I'd use it over a 1520 - easily. I'm curious to see what happens next year...Android is jumping into 64-bit. What will MSFT do?

    Cannot blame you there. If I were on Verizon, even though I'm not fond of the look per se, I'd grab a Droid Turbo. Instantly. It checks all my boxes. If course id get the 64GB model since it lacks microSD. Plus I really like what Moto is doing. I know it'll be a pricey model and not as great an upgrade from the OPO for me at this point...even though the size to battery ratio is awesome.

    Understood. You're channeling your inner Chregu I see. At this point, battery life for me is paramount. Even though I love the 930's form factor, charging a phone every two days based on my usage is right up my wheelhouse. I cannot see myself owning anything with a sub 3000mah battery.

    It is the form factor of the Moto and the battery that I like. Battery has become my biggest issue with smartphones.

    I agree. I love the form factor of that phone. It feels a little nicer to me in hand than the Moto X for some reason. I think the Maxx will get limited release because they don't want to cannibalize the current flagship. Especially since that would make the second variant of the chassis...the Nexus 6 as the other.

    It would be a good get for you. Maybe you need to put along with your 920 and ask 99 to source you a Maxx once it comes out...

    And I'm just here recharging my Lumia 820 again. :(

    http://www.theverge.com/2014/11/13/7...rs-in-the-cold
    And an interesting article, most of us probably fell the same. When I bought Lumia I expected constant and big updates what I got are small tweaks with no big update in the near future. I mean I can't even take them seriously if they are concentrating on other platforms. Now they seriously don't have any argument at me why I would buy it. SW is still worse and now also HW lacks compared to competition. I don't see point at staying here. Especially for me who buys phone and than uses it for 2 years, I won't be playing this catch up game again for 2 years.

    That's the fear many people had when MSFT bought Nokia. The constant support would be gone, lost in MSFT's glacial paced movements.

    Looks like I'll get about 30hours (including standby times) with the 1520...which is in the same ballpark as the 1+1. It should be higher if they had a s801 or s805 chip in there...but this isn't a brand new 1520 I have so I'm not complaining and taking battery numbers with a grain of salt.

    Still, I am concerned about the state of the OS going forward. I think within the next 12 months we will know what to expect once MSFT releases its own hardware and not this final round of Nokia projects.

    Had a good look at the Sony Z3 and the compact. I went to a Sony store and was able to his one properly. Very nice. Both are good by it I like the Z3 better. My wife liked the compact. So we may be a Sony family soon.
