I have used Nokia Lumia 1520 for almost ten years, with windows 10 mobile and it was amazing! I am only buying a new samsung galaxy note 20 ultra because it no longer supports the apps I need for work, like teams. But I am very sad to change, this phone was amazing until MS stopped supporting it. I have had four in the last decade.
I've just purchased one looking forward to using it despite no apps using it as basic phone I've got sick of android and its is out of the question.

I don't know why, but even though there are phones nowadays with larger screens, I still feel as if this phone is extremely big and bulky. I don't quite understand what it is about it.
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2021a proper whatsapp with all the features like video calls etc. thats the biggest one for sure. ... moreWe still do have telegram messenger on windows phone (on mine as well) and its UI is very very similar to whatsapp, so you could call telegram a "proper" whatsapp for windows phone
I bought 2nd hand Lumia 1520 in 2017 to run excellent OS maps app.
Charger connection became unreliable, Qi charging plate solved problem..Now I've acquired an unused 1520 with excellent battery, hoping to upgrade to Windows Phone 10 as I had done for 3 previous phones. But Microsoft Store unfindable on the 8.1 server hence no access to the updater app. Having hoped to scrape a few more months of map and camera use on this glorious new phone I'm now frustrated. Any assistance hugely appreciated. Oh how I wish they'd not chucked Windows Phone in the river!
programmer2, 08 Dec 2020Please name the couple hardcore apps you wish to see on windows store.a proper whatsapp with all the features like video calls etc. thats the biggest one for sure.
then a good browser is badly needed... with pwa support and notifications etc.
and other major apps like facebook, instagram, youtube, spotify etc.
I still have my Nokia Lumia 1520 till this day but the problem is i cant power it on. No matter what i've tried still it wont power on. I must say Lumia 1520 is the best ever phone that i've purchased & i miss to use it as my daily drive smartphone.

Nobody at Microsoft willing to make a couple of apps for hardcore Windows fans?
I challenge you to reward the people still using these phones in 2020!!
paco2x, 17 Jun 2020Back then when WP looked like a promise and the 1520 was a true flagship... 2013 was the break... moreI have one which I upgraded to Windows 10 version...still very good, but cant use WhatsApp after January 2020 MS Windows OS discontinuation. The battery's life is commendable.
I'm having a challenge in sourcing a matching gadget!
