Can I easily revert back to Windows 8.1.yes you can (at least now), via "windows device recovery tool" (pc app).
Hi All, Finally got my Windows 10 update on 17-March-16 in Mumbai, India for my Lumia-1520 (RM937).
Advise to all "D'ONT GO FOR IT", it is is simply HORRIBLE & lack the good features of 8.1.
It took more the 3-hours & almost 150% of Battery life, ensure that the phone is on charge while the updates are on.
Having many issue:-
1) All the email tiles are same & you have to ensure that the respective email is selected for each tile. There is a tendency for all tiles to reset to Microsoft Hotmail account.
2) The People (Contact) Tile photo scroll is ugly, the 8-1 was far superior.
3) The People (Contact) photos are very small as compared to the earlier 8.1. Also the individual contact details has a horrible pink background without the option to change it.
4) Lost all the "Live Photo" features on the earlier photos.
5) IN WhatsApp, the Keyboard overlaps the input text box, hence can't use WhatsApp in Portrait mode.
6) The Keyboard does have a new Mouse feature, but the text language selection has been set on the Space-bar. Not practical.
7) The Photo Apps Tile does not have the Scroll Feature.
8) The Photo Apps does not show the Albums, especially those on the SD card.
8) The Windows Store Apps has a im-practical layout.
9) Lost all my Favourites on the Internet Explorer.
In short Microsoft has done a very very bad job.
However for those who are still interested to get the upgrade, the process is as follows:-
a) First take a backup.
b) You must have lately got an update on Update Advisor. It checks & confirm the phoes windows 10 upgrade compatibility.
c) Check your System Update status. It will indicate New Upades are available.
d) Ensure that you have a good & fast data signal, plug ypur phoee for charging.
Finally be ready for all the headaches & frustrations post the upgrade.
No Cheers ?????????????????????

What can you,seesee obvious reason for MS to delay it indefinitely. As in insiders 3 updates have come, why not have had them legally. Any new hiccups abt update
Bob, 08 Mar 2016Dear FoneFanatic , I am sorry to ruin your negative thought , but Nokia Lumia 1520 will be ... moreBob, is it another rumor or expectation, if 1520 is first n que, it will take a month to reach mostly, or 640 Lumia announced by MSoft to get it first. All jumbled up, just MSoft can not organize it properly, it's shu'd be. 164 latestlatest not. 122. Still said to be buggy.

I am sorry to ruin your negative thought , but Nokia Lumia 1520 will be upgradeable to "Windows 10 mobile".The update will be released sometime this week.I don't know, where over the internet you have checked, but "GSMArena" has already posted a news regarding this a few days ago.Please check the following link,where you can read the full story :
My cousin has this phone and we searched every nook and cranny of the internet to find any info for win 10 upgrade/update. There will not be one for 1520 even though it is a really powerful phone. Marketing trick to sell newer phones because if they provide win 10 to older models , newer models wont sell as if Msoft really needs to worry about that !! This is the only reason i have avoided purchasing a winOS phone, even though i really like their OS for the smartphones but they are just plain stupid when it comes to deal with hardwares. Msoft stick to softwares!
Scott , 01 Mar 2016Microsoft ain't gonna release a new variant of this phone and the stable release of Windows 10... moreI agree Scott, MSoft has gone balls, no stable 10 version, why what's the real take, Fail to understand to long and twice withdrawal after seeding it. Even HTC has disowned, Windows nxt 10 flagship. Now we have to insiders it. Only option.
Top of line by Nokia, has been disgraced by MSoft, not even mentioned in list of expected receivables devices, only because It could not make 1550 instead. Curse of Nokia is clearly evident.

Now I'm just waiting for HP Elite X3 to be released.
I think that would be a good Windows 10 powered replacement for 1520.
Microsoft is not good in making customer happy, i'm a 1520 user waiting for win 10 update since last six months. Windows mobile were best when nokia manufactured they know how to satisfy costumer by there products. Microsoft should only deal in software business and improve it. GSMarena please provide any update dates for win10 updates. Thank you.
My lcd nokia lumia 1520 yellow burn, how to fixed it.... Please help me
I am extremely sorry for this flagship of Nokia, been left out without an owner. No news of follow up, nor 1550 announced, nor chances of Windows 10 anticipated. I will continue to use it till bricked. MSoft has been battered badly this year, maybe curse of Nokia, n it's Lumia series, 550,450, 750, 650 all are under rated hopless specs and buggy windows 10. Down with MSoft.
My battery has only charged to 45% does that mean the battery is no good
my problem is that my phone touch doesnot work poperly .it hang sometime..kindly resolve my problem
