That all now prices hav slashed to 500$ ad falling. Never have I wittiness steep fall n price within 3 months. This shows out off market demand models are liable to this scene. Resale is pathetic 250$ as of today. Its burning our hard earned to dogs.
I have some inconvenience situation regarding My LUMIA 1520.
After Phone FIRMWARE update and install some programs for hand writing (Papyrus), my device has obtained the black thin line on the right side of the screen.
I did my best in order to remove this line, BUT all my activities did not rich the success.
I even remove all installed programs, no results. HARD RESET was the final chance, but no progress.
The BLACK THIN LINE (almost invisible for others) is still presented at the right side of the screen. (From the top to the bottom, strike line)
Is this BUG, or something wrong with my device, I have no idea.
FIRMWARE UPDATE 1028.3562.1402.XXXX is placed on NOKIA site.
DIDI SOMEONE UPDATE LUMIA 1520 to this firmware and receive the same problem?
What should I do? Wait for official update for 8.1 or…?
Thanks for your patient and waiting for some responses.
Best regards from TBILISI.GEORGIA

Please I am planning to buy the Lumia 1520,but I want to know from those who have bought the phone whether it came with pouch and wireless charging mat or not?.
I think this is a good phone in terms of Battery life but it has given me a bit of problem, because all the sms to come to one thread even if it is for different numbers. For example if I saved two numbers for one person I don't know which number am sending to from the thread. I think is a disadvantage and Nokia/Windows need to look into it.

If your looking for a windows phone then yes the 1520 in my opinion is brilliant but please go to a phone shop and use it before you decide to get one! (you may have already done this) like wise read as many reviews as you can before you decide.

I haven't used any windows phones yet.. is there any application to hide both videos and pictures?? Just like android.. I'm not a die hard fan of applications but I need just few apps so that I can protect contents.. reply soon.. I'm still confused
Battery timing has improved. Go ahead with the update without any worries.
After reading comments from those with the 1520 upgrading to 8.1 it got me thinking. I'm no developer and neither do I tinker with my phone but after reading comments from people saying they love updating their 1520 to 8.1 I decided to take the plunge.
By accident I read user reviews for the Lumia 925( I think) Someone had posted a comment on how they updated their phone. I followed their instructions and now my 1520 is running 8.1 & I've gotta say its great. I was so pleased with the update I updated my wife's 1520.
There are lots of new features with the update and everything in my opinion works buttery smooth without any problems. I particularly like the Swype like typing, better than my previous android phone when it comes to recognising words. So if you have an hour to spare and willing to take the risk (it will void your warranty) I say go for it. Just a note.. Make sure sure phone is fully charged or being charged at the time of updating. You wouldn't want anything to happen to your phone would you.
I just bought Lumia 1520 2 days ago in India, mumbai. Just wanted to know when would there be an uprade from win 8 to win 8.1 available in India?! I see a lot of ui issue with this phone which I assume will b solved with a software upgrade. Pls guide
Well I got the Lumia 1520 2 days ago and all is well for me. haven't have those kind of issues that you're talking about. Although the apps are in BETA version and yes some of them requires you to buy it for full version but hey android and ios apps started that way. If I know you also wanted to release hell like you're doing right now back then. Android is lagging, apps are always freezing up those kind of issues. I changed from Iphone to android to windows (lumia) bec first. Iphone still have this loser battery life. I need to carry a charger or a powerbank just to survive the whole day. Although the Iphone is A OK to me still i need more juice than that. Then I had a Galaxy Note 3. everything was great, battery, apps, big screen. But the i really did not used all of its features. Hell Im not even using the stylus that comes with it. Then I bought Lumia 1520 very impressive battery, coming home from work and still have 40% battery after all day of heavy use. Very stable design. well they say Nokia = Rock and lastly very good camera but in the end of the day its still your preference that you need to follow. Im loving my Nokia Lumia 1520 even though its short comings in the app side.

I read your comments on the Nokia... and I am now convinced that I do not have to switch to windows phones now.
I was so encouraged to let go the "open source" operating system Android. Android is available on many phone makes and models and one can choose easily which phone suits him well (size, processor, color, brand...etc) while Windows phones are limited so far.
I thought much about iphones but I have a problem with their size... too small for me. Blackberiies...mmm.. not too encouraged.
When Nokia released the Windows 8 on the 1520, it really made me scratch my head. Although the device is too big :), I really considered it.
Referring to your post... Thank God I didnt buy it. I was not worried about the quality of the device, camera, stability, battery and other main highlights of the device. I was worried about these little things that make your life much easier when you use the phone... like the stuff you mentioned in your post and more. These are the little tricks that make me love or hate a phone... "CONVENIENCE".
I heard that you cannot have independent sound controls for the ringtone, music and others... This can also be something that annoys me...
My point is that these little important functions really make a difference for me... I mean something like the back button for the explorer is dammmnnnn important. The way it is done totally destroys the "multi-function" theme of the device.
I really wanted to find a somehow more secure alternative to the androids and was on the edge of buying the 1520.. I was looking for functional disadvantages for the 1520... and here you are... telling me that digging deeper in the details of the functions, the system is still not mature.
Thank you for your post and I will listen to you. I would give more time for windows to make their system more user friendly on the phones. (maybe Nokia will also reduce the size of the phone a little bit... somewhere around the size of the Note).
