    The only problem I have found that there are nowhere nearly as many apps as Android and iPhone.

  • Love my Lumina 1520

    Great phone. Every update makes it better. Have had my 1520 a little over a year & I still love it as much as the day I got it. Takes awesome pics & video. Live tiles blow the other OS's widgets and whatnots away. So happy I made the switch. Eagerly awaiting Windows 10.

  • Pleasantly surprised - superb display

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I wanted a phone I could see and use outside and this display is absolutely superb, exceeds my expectations and far ahead of anything else including I phone 6+ and Samsung 5. Very easy to get used to the OS, like the live tiles and the ability to change and shape my start screen. Seldom have to charge the battery sooner than every other day. Easy to use with my desktop to move pictures, music and other stuff around. Cortina better than Siri which I have on my iPad air Agree with other numerous ratings that complain about number of apps but have found all I needed so far including a golf GPS that was free, didn't use much data, didn't drain my battery and was VISIBLE on the course in sunlight. Haven't even used the camera yet and it's supposed to be the best feature! Long live lumia and windows OS from a former android and current iPad user!

    This phone is amazing. The 6' screen is excellent. With 20mp camera the images looks very good and with Lumia Denim the video on 4k is gorgeous. Gaming is also great on this big screen. Can't wait for the Windows 10 for phone.

    It might be a big phone but its full 1080p and 6 inches. This phone easily replaced my previous phone, the Nokia Lumia 1020. It was a great phone but it was on the small side. The Nokia Lumia 1520 has also replaced my 7 inch Microsoft tablet because it was a combination of the WIN 8.1 experience on a larger but not too large device. Its great for gaming, hardly has lag and in my 6 months of use so far it has never crashed. Its got a plentiful app store, even if some app are clones. This phone also never feels like it gets slower, its also got a great battery life.

    Nokia is my best phone and lumia 1520 is awesome but in app store I didn't get any updated games. Always same games and no more new games as I expected. The games version are automatically updated through phone but no any new games in app store. The HD display with big screen is great but there is lack of apps that can suit the phone.

    I love my nokia 1520 I use it everyday for all my smartphone needs. great battery life and user interface. camera could be better since its 20 mp thought it would be surprising but not really. phone gets hot while playing some games too. But all in all the phone is good. I would recommend to windows users not android. If you love android and the experience it gives you don't get this but for movies, photos, and just that phablet feel I say go ahead!!

    Battery life is amazing. Screen and resolution is amazing. The weakness is the lack of common apps and removal of apps such as Bank of America, Chase (both banks I use), and lack of support by 3rd parties. Live tiles are great when apps support them properly. Screen size at 6" is a bit too big. I love the large phablet form factor, but 5"-5.5" would suit me better. One handed use is tough.

    I have had my lumia 1520 since it first was released. I had some minor issues in the beginning. Like all new electronic devices on there first launch it had some bugs. The headphone plug in didn't work and also some minor software issues. After I used my warranty to get a new one. (which was very easy. thanks to AT&T's great customer service they handle the whole thing Quickly.) Since than I have had great response to everything the 1520 has to offer. Windows has always and will always be ahead of the tech curve. ios comes in late with new technology that windows has already had for awhile.
