    So here's my dilemma, I bought a 1520 a week ago, still have another week to decide if I want to keep it or not. I do love my 1520, its a fantastic piece of hardware and its kinda cool owning 2 pieces of WP innovative phones (first the 920, an amazing phone, and the first 6" WP8 device).

    But with the MWC coming up here next month, I'm really debating whether to return the 1520 for now and see what's coming next. Supposedly Nokia is going to announce some kick-*** phones at the MWC, possibly the 1525 and 1820 (I don't believe in the 1520v, sounds made-up.)

    What would you do? Keep a great phone, or wait and see if something even better comes along?

    I'm kinda on the same boat. I am waiting on another OEM to win me over though, other than Nokia. I can upgrade from my 8X as early as March, and if HTC or Sony or Huawei or Lenovo or whoever can announce a ridiculous phone running 8.1 with unique specs, I'll be all over it. Just don't know when to jump. I'd say give the 1520 to a family member if you find something you like out of MWC.

    The 1520 should sell well on Swappa after MWC.

    Bring it back, wait until WMC, nothing announced? get the Lumia 1520 again.

    Problem is, the devices don't align with WP8.1 at all (Supposed to RTM in march), unless there is GDR4(Oo) to support QHD i don't think the 1820 could even exist. The 1820 specs are ridiculous, but the thing is, they are not a fantasy.. you will see QHD Android Phones @ WMC.. but seriously who needs 2560x1440 pixel on a 5" phone, that's just insane, all i would want right now is a 5" phone with 1080p and no hardware buttons on the front. The Snapdragon 805 is far more questionable though, that chip has literally just been presented.

    So I've definitely decided to return my 1520 and wait to see what comes out during MWC. I think there are going to be some pretty awesome phones that would be worth getting including the possibility of a 5.2 inch 925 successor, which would be the perfect size imo. Even if nothing comes out that's worth getting and I end up picking up another 1520, I'll most likely go with the black 32GB version.
