    I never doubted that the hardware of the 1520 is great! I just think the already lacking operation system is lacking even more on a phablet.
    I don't think so, then again the things i'd do with the device wouldn't be the things normal users of the device would use it for.

    Hang on, Productivity is a reason why people buy this device. Damn.

    I'm glad I never listen to the radio.
    I rarely watch TV, there is so much **** on TV so many cooking, dancing, drama, gossip and one sided news and sympathy shows the only reason why i'd have a TV would be for Xbox or "possibly" a PS4.

    Nice!

    Personally I have issues with the 1520. A phablet without any phablet functions isn't the phablet I'd buy. If I were looking for a phone in this size range I'd look at a Galaxy Note III. I'd like to see a 925 with the 1520 internals :-)
    Same here. They should at least give us a 64GB base option if they don't have a stylus.

    The 1520 would've been a must-have for me if it was 5".
    Unfortunately, I don't always get what I want. C'est la vie.

    Well, if you are happy with the functions provided, I am happy for you. I think it's a great and beautiful phone (judging from pictures, I haven't seen it yet).

    I was just... well, I don't know. Maybe I should sometimes hold back my opinion if it doesn't contribute to anything.

    You're in Australia, not many channels anyway. Then again, it doesn't matter, TV everywhere is pretty crap. It seems only paid TV is half decent, barely.

    Personally I think you're right. A phablet should be something a bit 'different' than a normal smartphone. No stylus, no multiple app screens, etc. I think I'll wait to buy anything that large, but then again, I have no desire for something that large as a phone anyway.

    Talking about screen sizes, I think the screen of the Lumia 620 is a little too small for me. The 4.5 inch screen of my 8X is perfect however, and maybe I'd go up to 5 inch. But if WP8.1 brings awesome features for phablets, like a Windows 8-like split screen, then I could very well rethink my opinion.

    No, don't hold back your opinion, it's good to hear variety. :)

    I thought the 8x had a 4.3 inch screen, but still minor difference. :)

    You quoted me too fast, you have always to give me a few seconds to rework my post. I always do this, I post very fast, and I read over it, change some things, read it again and change it again. Maybe I should do this before posting ;-)

    It can well be it's only 4.3 inch. I didn't look it up.

    Here's a picture of the old stock exchange. Not 100% sure of it's usage now, it' has a used book market in the middle of it.

    620? Too small? Give me a 5" phone that will willingly fit in my hand.

    I agree that it's too small...to hold a damn 2000 mAh battery.

    Here's two I did of the wheel at night time. I had issues with some of the lighting. I should have adjusted the shutter speed.

    Concept that I've thought of that will probably bring Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 closer:
    -Swipe up from back brings up multitasking.
    -Swipe up from search/charms brings up charms menu.

    I didn't say it would work well, but a suggestion is a suggestion! (That and I'd actually hit the search key on purpose.)

    I have large hands and I don't care about yours :P

    It's too small for my taste, the keyboard is to cramped for my big fingers. Also I really miss the lost space with the aspect ratio. I want my 8X back :(

    Actually, Orange sent me a short message with the data to track the 8X's repair. Unfortunately I lost the message after the 620 hard reset I had to perform and so I have no idea what is going on.

    At least my 620 still vibrates.

    Try contacting Orange support if they could send it again.
    Why'd you break your 7X in the first place?

    It broke itself. Seems to be typical of most WP phones. :P

    I didn't break my 6X. I just had some issues. The faulty SIM tray produced restarts and SIM errors, I had problems with charging (now I think it was the original cable, not the phone itself) and the worst thing: People started to hear me very badly when calling them.

    I could contact Orange support, however I decided just to wait the 10 days they said it would take.

    Hmm. I see. Have fun waiting for your 5X with your 320.
