Just returned from iPhone to Windows on Lumia 1520 hacked with InteropTool to FallCreatorsUpdate,virtual memory to 1024kb and the phone is fluid as never before...good phone, with very logical and elegant Software...I dint feel the App gap,missing inky ny bank app...but for example the third part myTube app is far more better as the original Youtube app....he phone fulfills my needs
This phone is still awesome today in 2019,,,apart from a lack of apps (how many do you need?),,the camera is fantastic,,the screen is perfect resolution for its size,,and it is still as fast as my friends new Honor phone,,,,4 years I've had it, and it still going strongÂ…GO NOKIA...
I love Lumia love Windows phone but I hate the attitude the Microsoft for Windows phone
Anonymous, 09 Mar 2019and if I hate that stupid childish android?!?Sadly, there is no choice... If you want to stick to W10m you should know the support will end in December of this year, after that there is no guarantee of anything and that includes how much time you will be able to install apps or to use the Windows recovery software. It will become abandonware like Symbian or Palm OS.
your 1520 still can charge at 100% ?? Mine is not, only 82% max..... I changed new battery, the result is same at 82%..... I read some user 1520 at other country, they had same problem.....is it software issue or what???

pSomuah, 08 Nov 2018I am having problem with my front camera. Anytime I try to take picture,the phone restart itse... morea very weak point in windows phones is that when you download a 3th party app on that,other factory apps may be affected and malfunction by the 3th party apps,This is the main reason for your phone and you need to delete all of the 3th parties apps specially as you may know they seldom update their apps!!therefore the apps can not sync themselves to the new updates of windows patches!
Another reason may be the new windows updates itself!sometimes the updates produce malfunctions!which usually may be corrected by the next coming update patch!I hope this would be helpful.
This was a great phone for it's time....just got burried by android and iOS. It's EOL now, or will be by the end if 2019 if the rumors are true. Sad that windows phone never really caught on.
I am having problem with my front camera. Anytime I try to take picture,the phone restart itself. And most of my apps like Facebook, messenger, Skype,Twitter and others does not work. Any help?

Rest in peace Lumia series. I was considering getting either this, or the Note 4 for a while. (I went with the Note 4, cuz y'know, Windows phone amirite)
