    Hey I considered going back to android...and I'm sure the new Note 4 is awesome. I did have a note 2 and tried a Note 3... Before using the 1520 Windows phone. Its been almost a year now... I'm fortunate to be able to afford a new 📞phone each year if i choose...But after trying out the Note 4 at Att...there's no way I'm giving up my Nokia 1520. I'll have to admit, yes I want more apps, and my wish for a windows surface phone with pen would be great for business (with surface 3 or 4) but I just like this platform over android or apple...can't imagine using a smaller phone. I'm Not a power user I'm just a normal every day cell phone business user... Can't wait to see the next 1520 release or version....Cheers!

    I will buy note 4, because of apps, design, battery removable, 2k screen, exynos 5433 / s805 processor.

    Also it will get Android L - within 3 months after the launch of android l.

    So I am eager to wait 3 months for note 4's price drop, and I want to buy it when Android L for Note 4 will be available.

    Note 4 looks tempting. The battery life supposedly improved to half a day with note 3 to a day and a half with note4 on regular use. I just cannot stand the whole cluster **** that is both android and samsungs unnecessary installed apps. I can't even bother looking at the settings. Its worse than Lumias settings. Which reminds me.. WP needs to alphabetize the settings.
    "START THEME" is at the top while "Audio" is at the very bottom of the list. "Bluetooth" is somewhere in the middle.

    If you can get passed that, note 4 should be a great phone for business users.

    Buy both. Average price on a 1520 used on swappa is $295. Windows phones used = great value.

    Well, both look great and really are, but if you want the note 4, You're gonna have to be giving up camera ability. But Android has a far better market. So I guess you're best choice is Android, considering they have launchers like 8Launcher which makes your phone look like Windows phone

    If you're really just an average user, well, any phone will do for you. Even if Note 4 has a 4K display, there aren't a lot of videos that output that kind of resolution. And if there are, I'm sure they take a lot of gigabytes for space.



    In GSMArena's battery test, the 1520 has still the highest endurance rating, even if it's almost a year old. And for a normal user, I think basic things like battery life and strong antenna will matter to you more than other gimmicks.

    I wish the Note 4 had the same IsoCell sensor as the S5. But sadly it does not. I'm waiting for the S6

    1520 hands down. I am using a note now and its horrible. Slow, laggy, crappy battery life. Only awesome thing is the pen. hear that Microsoft. Make a surface 1520 with pen interface. Total winner and I will have one!

    I would choose neither, I'd go for a Nexus 6. But 6 inch devices aren't really my style anyways.

    To me, this is not really a fair comparison. When the WP OS is updated to take advantage of larger screens and proper digitizer support is added for use of a stylus, we will have a better comparison. I think people are comparing the OS sometimes, and not actually the phones. The 1520 could probably do everything that the Note 4 could do if the OS would allow it. The camera is definitely better, and I frankly prefer the WP OS big time over android or iOS (and I have had both in the past).

    Well no der about the car xD

    On android you can mimic windows phone with 8Launcher and To@st Notifications. That's what I did l when I had my android and I loved it. You could also get widgets on Android that can get you live tiles. Android is amazing for apps

    ^^generalisation starts at home
    android may have flexibilty of customisation but launchers cant mimic the experience of the real deal
    just see MIUI and ios,a lot of difference
    also the apps thing is a fad and not really true

    It doesn't matter if they mimic the "real deal" because I'm sure Android user would know they're still on Android. I only switched to WP because the launcher. ( Horrible Mistake). And what do you mean by that the apps thing isn't true? WP is awful when it comes to apps and apps with features. Android you can get an to do anything because it's open source. Unlike WP.
