    Using 2 phones right now, Note 2 as the primary and iPhone 4s as the backup. When I get the Lumia 1520, which should I sell and which phone should I keep as a backup phone?

    Thoughts?

    Cheers, Thom.

    It depends on what operating system you prefer. I would probably sill the iphone 4s, and keep the note 2 as backup since it is also a phablet. The iphone is not a phablet, and can not do quite as much as the note 2, but the note 2 is not as smooth and cohesive as the iphone in certain aspects. Personally, as I said, keep the note 2, sell the iphone 4s.

    I would keep the iPhone 4S.

    The Lumia 1520 is really really BIG. I'm sure that sometimes it's nice to use a small smartphone (sometimes when partying etc.). With the Note 2 you would have 2 really really BIG phones (aka phablets). Would be too much for me.

    Thats a good point. Besides I think an iPhone would compliment windows phone much more than android.

    As a wp and Android user, I'll go the other way. I'll sell the iPhone. Though it'd be nice to have both, the large difference in size might make you uncomfortable when switching from one to the other. I'd prefer, on a personal note to have 2 units of nearly the same size. But that's just me

    I only sell devices when I've decided that I'll never use them again. If there is a chance that you may want to use both at some point. Keep both.

    I've still got apps in Android or IOS that are not in Windows Phone 8 yet, e.g. Tango for video calls. My google contacts is the master copy, although I occasionally sync to IOS as well for backups.

    I would keep the iPhone I had a 5S and a Nexus 5 I returned the Nexus 5 when I got the 1520. IMHO iOS still has the best overall mobile eco-system, and you combine that with the best mobile hardware currently which is the 1520 you got the best of both worlds.

    It all depends what you prefer i'm using lumia 1020 and note 2. I would say sell note 2 and keep iphone. 2 big fones doesn't make sense. And if u prefer android over ios then keep note 2. Iam looking for a dual sim high end android. Coz I have 3 numbers. My main fone is lumia 1020.

    I'd sell the note 2 but it depends on you. If I have the 1520, I will not need another phablet plus as an audiophile, I prefer the sound quality on the 4s WAYYYY better than the Note 2. The Note 2 has horrible sound quality but that's just me.

    Also, the ecosystem of Apple is still superior than Android's plus support. I went from an iPhone 5 to a Lumia 920 and I'm loving the 920 but the iPhone I'd say is still the best all around phone overall. It's premium built and packs so much in so little plus the support and aftersales of Apple is clearly superior before, during or after the warranty period.

    If there are exclusive apps that you can't access on WP, then keep the iPhone. Otherwise sell both.

    Sold both of them. I am thinking of selling out my g2 although I love it just because Lumia 1520 is too prominent.

    I would sell the Note 2. The iPhone will hold its value where as the Note 2 is on its way out. You wont be using the iPhone anyways so better to have the phone that holds its value sitting in the drawer for a while. When you finally give up and sell it because you like your L1520 so much you will make a few dollars.

    From experience, Samsung devices don't hold their price well.
    Apple device hold their price well until a certain point. That said, the 4S has a ridiculous price right now online - ridiculous for a two year old phone.

    Sell the Note II first and get a 5th Gen iPod touch as a replacement for the 4S, should you need the apps. Knowing resale prices, you'd actually have a slim profit should you do the 4S->iPod Touch switch.

    That is because many people still prefer the 4S over the 5/5C/5S because it feels so wellmade, it's smaller and you just have a wow feeling when holding it (like with the Lumia 1520). The iPhone 5 series just feels cheap. Many people dislike that.

    I agree. My wife and daughter got 5S's the day they were released so I sold my wife's white 4s on eBay. After I took the case and screen protector off and saw that it was in perfect condition and got a good feel for just how awesome of a piece of hardware it is I almost kept it for myself. The only reason I didn't is because it doesn't have LTE. Our LTE network is very strong and I've gotten accustomed to it. I could never go back to 4g.
