What Microsoft needs is a phone that looks different from the pc but still maintains a reasonable level of similarity and a lot of new features which maintains a different from that of the pc, nobody wants to move from a pic to a phone that operates exactly like a pc.
Both of these devices are highly anticipated. But yet they come out with a fairly simple, ugly design. Huge disappointment for me. For me I think Microsoft has the best Os. As much as we waited for them to come out with flagship phones, this is the best they could come up with. Really? I will be buying it because I need the latest and the greatest and I have zero patience for them to come out with something else next year. So I`ll take what I can get. But for all of you that do have patience I would wait. This is why they will always`s be playing third fiddle in the phone market. Always`s great phones but nothing that ever knocks it out of the park.
Excellent Phone... Just waiting for release in India now... Excellent Camera Hands Down...!!!
Extremely waiting !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WIndows phone is going to be productivity gadget. It's simple, straight-forward yet professional. However it's not going to beat andriod and ios in term pleasure purposes. The interface aka start screen reminded us to PC. with no attactive fancy, colourful and minimalistic icon, its hard to attract young people to WP. Yes, WP fullfill smartphone purposes, but that's it.
vuhay, 06 Nov 2015Hello. 1520 is 4g supported. Just update the mobile. It works in Airtel and reliance jio 4gThe 4g bands in 1520 dont have the 4g bands offered in India by Airtel which is LTT 40 (2300) and Lte 3(1800). I have the Airtel 4g SIM card but doesn't give me 4g in 1520. 4g works in myk3 Note. Similarly the 4g doesn't work in my wife's iPhone 6, an imported model which is different from the Indian model which is compatible with the 4g bands of Airtel.
I'm not really sure how I can get to W10 now, but I hope microsoft projects- support for google apps,streaming,... will be soon. With corrupted Siri apple is out of question, and great Tizen from samsung not even started(btw no assistent there), of course there are nexus phones bendable and without surprises. Microsoft comes with sdslot,dualsim,removable+big battery,....and in 2 sizes. Camera is for them in the first place(unmatched audio recording,shot resolution,manual settings,..), then comes Cortana, sync with desktop, clever use of amoled, sensors in phone/band. Things I miss are more camera setting like hires panoramas,spherical,...and pen support of course. I expect more surprises coming in january, but this phone is for me worth more than note5/Z5P/... it just got all whats important.
AnonD-11368, 05 Nov 2015Hi, I want to switch over from android phone to Windows phone seeing it's specs. Have you us... moreI have been using Nokia 1520 for two years as a business phone and I absolutely recommend windows phone and lumia phones for business. I do have also android tablet (Sony Xperia Z4) and phone (note 2). Android is good for play and entertainment but for real business: only windows and Lumia!!!!
AnonD-11368, 05 Nov 2015Hi, I want to switch over from android phone to Windows phone seeing it's specs. Have you us... moreYes. Used Android before. Whats good about Android? The apps! A lot of apps. But u know u r not going to use them all. What's good bout windows phone? Simplicity. What I want they are all there.. Social..link accounts..the GPS thingy.. I don't know. I just preferred simplicity compare to fancy Android or iOS. With w10.. I believe it's gonna be elegant plus simple. My 2 cents.

I want to switch over from android phone to Windows phone seeing it's specs. Have you used android before? What is your experience regarding windows phone? Thanks anybody for reply.

Have you seen the specification of this phone or just notice this odd thing.
guys please check out this phone size is 5.7inch it means 5 and 7 the two oddno. so it showes this phone is also odd phone so never buy..
Guys one more question. Is there any specific windows phone forum? Like what we are seeing hundreds regarding android phone. I hope there should be many. Can anybody direct me to a good one? Thanks.
Which are the countries where this will get released in December? When is this expected to be launched in India and at what price? Desperately waiting for this one. I have a 1520 since the last 14 months and am yet to find a mobile that will match it; only thing is the 1520 doesnt have the 4G band that works in India. Iphone 6splus - forget it - way too expensive and Apple 'innovating' by bringing in the 'Live' feature in its camera which Lumia has been having since the past 2 years - phew - and there are Apple fanatics who are wowed by it.

Feel worst,now days when i use windows phone,the limitations are getting more day by day,sorry to say android and ios thats the best,user friendly..these products knows what customer wants.
Do not take too long to bring this phone to the market, the competition is stood and please remember that business thrives in being fast with grabbing the demand opportunity.
We have waited for almost two years, some may lose their patience.
Good luck, love Lumia 940 XL.
