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

Use nokia pro camera to get better results or else take it to care center
