From all the smatphones, I ever had, Nokia Lumia is smartphone with the best hardware and the worst operating system i ever saw!
Firstly it was with Windows Mobile 8.1 and the problem was outdated versions od applications on the phone, there was no update at all! I have ancient version of Viber, Instagram...and itc. backup was not working at all, the microsoft stoped to support their own app. for this system (like Skype, OneDrive, MS Office...)
From the beginning, I could never save recorded camera videos or voice recordings on sd card. Imagine situation, that you are recording important video with phone, and then on the end, you saw error message that video was not saved! What the f...!!!???
Then I updated operating system to Windows 10 Mobile. The first days of usage it was excellent, but then the problems come out. I notice that battery is last shorted, device sometimes freezes it self and just restarting was helping in that case. Performance was drasticly went down. Then i used InteropTools to analyse registy. The Microsoft settings was disaster. I notice that the system was seted to use only one cpy at 1 Ghz, except two at 1.7 GHz! I changed that, i set two CPU at 1.5GHz! Also, i turn off telemetry and icrease paging file memory form 256MB to 1024MB. The phone performance was increased, but stil there was a problem with freezing, not often as before, but still it was happening sometimes. Then, backup of some app was not still possible (Viber), again there was no update for all app.
On the end i couldnt take it any more and i decide to buy new phone and I switched to android phone! I give up form using Windows OS platform on smartphones!!!

Ashvin , 23 Feb 2018Now it's out dated. No any updates!!!!you can entrop unlock the phone and modify the registry to install windows 10 mobile, I have W10M v1709 on mine and I get monthly updates
Microsoft has released a tool that easily upgrades the Nokia Lumia 1320 to Windows Mobile 10. "Over-the-cable Updater tool for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Mobile 10"
Worked like a charm for mine.
ronak joshi, 31 Mar 2017How do I upgrade my Lumia 1320 (OS 8.1) to Windows 10??? it can't get an upgrade to windows 10. when I consulted to B2X they told me they can't give an upgrade in future too as it do not have good hardware.i had tried windows insider app it is also not working on it.i had saw the list of devices supporting insider app but 1320 is not listed there.so it is better to forget about windows 10 on Lumia 1320

Anonymous, 28 Jun 2017Messenger isn't working on mine.. What's the problem?you will have to install Windows 10 on your lumia which wasn't released for the 1320
but there are ways to install it, look on google "how to install Windows 10 on unsupported lumia phones)
how to fix Lumia 1320's (or any other overheating phone, lumia it was or not)
for Lumia 1320:
follow the instructions here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtg0HeWyfmk on how to
disassemble the phone to get to the main logic board (it's at the top around the camera)
for the logic board: there is a metallic plate for each side:
the side that contains the camera holds the eMMC 8GB Storage under a metallic plate. that eMMC chip does generate heat, you will need to remove the metallic plate (be careful it's thin) on top to reach it (it's the largest chip) and apply thermal paste (Get a high quality paste, don't use the crappy cheap ones) and apply some on top of the eMMC chip using a tool that's not sharp. the thermal paste will make the heat transfer between the chip and the metallic plate more efficient, therefore less heat on the chip
now for the other side that's facing the phones display:
that side contains the SoC and that's what generates most of the heat. DO NOT remove the metallic plate: but observe that
between that metallic plate and the screen, another thin and wide metallic frame. not all you have to do is apply paste between the metallic plate on the logic board and the metallic frame inside the phone's body.
reassemble the phone and you are ready to go. my L1320 doesn't overheat that much anymore (it still does).
you can make stuff more efficient by using a wide aluminum paper and apply paste between it and the board. but I never thought of that while modding mine xD
