Hi, Please don't buy lumia 1520, you get much better models in the market in this price range. I had been using this phone over 8 months now. I have used only nokia phones in the past and trusted the brand but the lumia 1520 disappointed me totally. I have faced network issues, over heating, hanging, touch screen not responding etc. This phone is not consistent and sturdy. I took it to the service center and they replaced the mother board and screen claiming there are some manufacturing defects but still no much improvements. The only advantage is the camera which is good when compared to other phones, but please don't compromise other factors for camera. :-)
Masomenos, 11 Mar 2015I want to buy this phone. I am Nokia Lumia 920 user and battery life is awful on 4G lasts 5 ho... moreHi, the battery life on this device is excelent. I use it for everything except for gaming and I get easily 2 days out of it, and a little left to find a charger. In fact I think it never went below 15%.
Before Denim I made it last 5 days once, it was amazing, but now I can get 2 o 2 1/2 days with normal usage.
If you liked the 920, you're gonna love the 1520.
I want to buy this phone. I am Nokia Lumia 920 user and battery life is awful on 4G lasts 5 hours max. Can someone tell me how the battery life is on this phone? Is it worth buying it?
A bit disappointed with WP.
I (silly of me) purchased "google chromecast" and realised that the WP is not compatible. Its compatible with android, apple is, with windows on laptop. But alas , no support for WP.
Then I wanted to purchase a smart watch (was looking at Moto 360) but to my disappointment, its not compatible. The watch is compatible with android and apple so why not WP????
So many new apps are released each day in India. But mainly for apple and android. Its as though, WP doesn't exist.
Hi, everyone. I have a question. After the Denim update I noticed that the location 'thingy' consumes a lot of my battery.
With Cyan, location didn't affect my battery life at all, but now it increased my battery usage by 30% or 40%.
I turn it on only when I need to use the gps and things like that.
Did anyone experience this issue as well?

Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015Change your firmware region if you can't wait any longer.how do I do that? I can't wait anymore. I wanna update my phone ASAP.. :)
I am an unhappy camper. I bought my Lumia 1520 a little over a year ago and at only a couple months in, It was run over by a car. Beginning of my woes.
My warranty provided me w/refurbished replacement 1. Which shortly messed up only speak or hear OFF SPEAKER. SENT IT BACK got replacement 2. Shortly it went where only hear or be heard ON SPEAKER. Replacement 3 after 3 days it started buzzing in audio then again IT WENT TO ONLY HEAR IF I WAS ON SPEAKER. After all of this Microsoft agreed to send me a 4th but this time BRAND NEW one. I have not even had it in use a week AND you may have guessed... today phone 4 WENT TO I CAN ONLY HEAR A DIALED CALL OR HEAR AN INCOMING CALL IF I HAVE IT ON SPEAKER they can hear me. This has been a huge amount of time spent in the provider store on phone w/techs back and forth over and over. Am I the only one to have such so much audio trouble???
