This is a good phone, battery is good and also the performance. I found out that 8.0 version I could not upload photo directly from album to Facebook. Hopefully 8.1 version could fix it.

I recently purchased the 1520 and updated to 8.1. Everything functions smoothly but the battery is draining very fast and also the phone gets heated near the camera lens all the time.

Can anyone out there help me with this regard?? Please

I am aware that I cannot go back to 8.0 but once the official 8.1 update is out will I be able to update it officially through the network provider as we'll? Please someone help me with my two questions. I spent all my money on this device and I do not want to regret it

Thanks

Someone suggested exactly what you mentioned. But added that you restart the phone once changing region with language then once restarted the phone will search for the Cortana update which loads onto the phone.... This does not happen on my phone.

The perfect phone. And now with Cortana WP 8.1 it's really amazing.

Hey looked several luring comments posted by fellows in this platform an I got convinced to purchase this Lumia 1520. Well the device functional properties are a great deal. Camera superb, feels good on the hand and is stylist.
however lay you hands on the OS and regret why you ever paid for this gadget.
Windows Phone 8 OS IS WAY TOO rudimentary and just below basic as compared to android of any generation.i regret it so much. No file manager is available,flv files don't. Play. No application for chm files. To mention.....
make a better choice. Android is a better choice when buying a phone

Why my question '' How to do Multitasking in 1520'' go unheard in this page? Do any of you really have 1520 here?
