Hello, I want to ask you about WP as I never seen a WP yet, what about the applications like office suit and adobe reader, are they available on WP and do they run smoothly as on android? As this makes me hesitate to buy this beast.
I appreciate your answer.
AnonD-84154, 06 Nov 2013its ok my friend but windows os is not upto the mark....lack of apps and games is what making ... moreI want a WP8 OS coz it is unique and it really runs faster than Android. Android is good in terms of the number of apps in its Playstore and the customization of the UI is wonderful but once you own an Android device, you would only have to deal with depreciation each and everytime. Once you buy a high end Android device now, in two weeks or so, another one comes in and will only sh*t on your flagship whereas WP doesn't really face such problems like that. Only Nokia makes most of the WP8 powered handsets out there and there's not much of a competition going on unlike with Android you have Samsung, HTC, Motorola, Acer, Huawei, ZTE, Alcatel, Asus, LG, Pantech and Sony plus many other companies. It is only a matter of taste and it is your choice whether to go for any of them but I have decided to buy a 1520 once it gets available here in the Philippines. I am still thinking whether to get an iPad Air 16GB WiFi as a secondary device for many great apps this Christmas season or should I wait for a little pricedrop. :)
Nokia, please put hdmi port, file manager, usb on the go...and u're gonna take sam's market share...
Amin, 05 Nov 2013Need Nokia android operating system .....Nokia will never go lagdroid, so so crying
LumiaFiend, 06 Nov 2013Why would Nokia for the laggy droid operating system?its ok my friend but windows os is not upto the mark....lack of apps and games is what making nokia down whether its lumia series or symbian or asha series ....not even half of the apps and games are their in app store of nokia which android and ios have in their app store....
Nokia is such a foolish and mad company..bcoz whereas today's date every other brands are adopting Android os and nokia is still playing with windows os,windows platform is good but not much creation can be made as same as like symbian ,,lack of apps makes mobile dull with no matter how much good hardware and specification mobile is having....nokia need to adopt Android to come back otherwise nokia is already out of competing with any other company...
The hardware on this device shouldn't have a problem running wp8 I will probably be getting this device as soon as it comes out I have the Nokia Lumia 820 now and I never had a problem with it well worth the money if you ask me

W1=width of Lumia
D2=5.7"=144.78mm Note 3 diagonal
W2=width of Note 3
Both have aspect ratio of 16:9,
Delta=2.67mm, considering either side, delta/side = 2.67/2=1.33mm-> this is still a significant diff.
I really want to have this device badly! Lumia 1520 I believe is a very powerful device in a nice simple OS. WP8 has a bright future ahead of it though for now Android and iOS are leading the game but Windows is Microsoft so I bet at the end of the road they will still succeed. This bad boy was designed amazingly by Nokia and I really love the specs underneath the beautiful chassis. :)

People still doesn't realize, that WP main menu doesn't cover the whole width of the screen, as you can see in the picture. It has couple millimeters blank at the edge of the screen.
Besides, little wider bezel cover it from damaging, if you drop it, unlike GS 4/Note 3.
I love the design, though the is no camera quality test for it yet here on GSMArena. I would like to have one, hummm that 6" wowww
Why would Nokia loves HUGE BEZELS, these could have been a perfect device, dimensions could have been smaller. And zooming into the corners, why would Nokia loves to make the SHARP angular corners, these would make handling uncomfortable as it digs into your palm. HTC One Max smoothly curved corners is ideal.
I want this phone badly! I can't wait to get my hands on it! I really believe Nokia will make it big this quarter. The camera, the build quality and the design, everything is just perfect with the Lumia 1520. Best of luck Nokia! Bring it here to the Philippines and I will be one of the those interested people to get it first! :)
