    So my birthday is in May & I want a new phone for my birthday being its been a while since my dad got me my current Lumia 920 (a.k.a. my baby). As much as I love my 920 its time for an upgrade. I mainly want a better camera on my phone & the 1520 & 1020 provide just that. I need the upgrade in the camera mainly because I'm going on a trip to the Germanic countries this summer & I want to have a higher quality camera than the one I had on the last trip I went on. I'm very conflicted on the issue because both devices have things I love. My biggest questions to make my decisions are:

    *is the photo quality really THAT different between them?
    *Is there a big difference in battery life?
    *is there a big difference in display quality/brightness?
    *Is there a big difference in performance being the 1520 has a better CPU?

    I'm leaning toward the 1520 because I like the big screen for texting & the SD slot will be nice for storing all the pics & videos from Europe assuming I will be forced to put the phone on airplane mode as to not use roaming data, assuming I wont be connected to the internet. Also it lacks the big camera protruding out of the 1020, but I will definately deal with it if there's THAT big a difference as 41:20 MP makes it seem.

    Thanks in advance.

    The newer your phone model is, the better the chances are for next major update. 1020 < 1520 < 930... and so on...

    Lol no problem m8 :P it just seems weird that this is suddenly a thing.. i would go for the 1520 handsdown.. Bigger screen if you don't mind that and all the latest hardware there is!
