bastian, 24 Dec 2013in short, the main disadvantage is... the WP8 OSYes, that's correct. The main disadvantage is the OS,
a closed-source non-customizable OS that god know what kind of NSA backdoor it install.
Best thing about technology is they keep on evolving, the bad thing about user is they can't keep up with tech. Yesterday note 3 is best display, today might be lumia 1520 and tomorrow might be Motorola coming up with best screen technology. Narrow minded will cling on note 3 news and arguing with other, so does some narrow minded cling on lumia 1520 and arguing. Yesterday nokia, today Samsung, tomorrow? Move on guys.

[deleted post]I do agree with you about screen brightness but from all available comparisons, lumia 1520 outperforms all other heavy weights, including note 3.
Please stop comparing, it's window phone and Android. If want Android, just buy and enjoy it. And if you want window, buy it and enjoy. Both have advantage and disadvantages. Come on guys be grateful that we have ios, android, window and many more os are coming. Let's enjoy.
kris.joe, 24 Dec 2013Wait wait wait....! What did you just said?? Customizable!!!! and wp8 !!!yes pal..i'm writing form my 1520 and i can say it's costumizable..i just love it..if you like android it's just fine..i had android for 3 years and i got bored..i hate IOS so just switched to wp8 and love it..and about the size i have to admit..i was a bit concerned at first, but man it's a beauty..i wouldn't go back for a smaller screen..ever..i'm a very happy costumer..and everyone should be happy for what they have..

EDIT: I got it for 42k which is much lesser than the launch price i.e. was over 46k I guess. So its still cheaper than note3 for me.
I would really say it is the greatest advantage to have wp 8 since it is most stable while customizable operating system with a future look and has a bright outlook
The battery endurance test itself make me want this phone
920 battery live is a no go on 3g :(

And ... more" Display mate put it as virtually the best and brightest display they had tested."...wrong,they have not tested lumia 1520 but they did test lumia 2520,which in their own words is the brightest display with best sunlight visibility in any mobile device......

And on top of that it was already shown that the Note 3 was not using it's maximum brightness.
At full brightness it reaches 660cdm. Display mate put it as virtually the best and brightest display they had tested.

"HTC liked it well enough to put a similar feature on the One series"
