rahul, 12 Aug 2015as i heard that saying ''hey cortana'' opens/wakes the phone in 1520 ... does it really happen... moreyes, you have have set up and pick the option of hey cortana. I used this phone about 6 months ago, it worked like charm. Those who are saying hey cortana doesn't work either they have hardware problem, or doesn't know how to activate. However, you have to have Lumia Denim (or Developer Preview). It wakes up without touching...You have set up and train this phone so that it can recognize your voice. I miss my lumia 1520, probably will be getting another one soon, or better to wait for new phone, i don't know. nothing comes close to this phone (I used iPhone 5s, Galaxy S5, HTC m8, LG g3 , Lumia Icon before). Still 1520 is no 1 one. Sold because Verizon (my current carrier) does not have it.
as i heard that saying ''hey cortana'' opens/wakes the phone in 1520 ... does it really happens .... reply plz
Up until now the craziest and unique part of this 1520's audio recording capability is still holding me back from changing to a newer phone like S6 and such. One of the only phones that can record Dolby Surround 5.1 , can playback that 5.1 track along WITH the Dolby Mobile enhancement for headphones, crazy quality. Record some songs or concert. Download Moliplayer it can choose the second audio track which is the 5.1 track, make sure u enable Dolby virtual surround enhancement in system settings and hear to your recordings. You will be blown away, if you hadnt tried it already.
I have already 2 windows phone(lumia 1320, lumia 640xl) and its awesome phone in my life
After one year plus of using it, very satisfy. good phone good spec. no complain. only limitation is the apps too limited choice. As compared to iOS and ANdroid
as of now im using the windows 10 insider preview in my 1520, so far there are some few bugs that i found but all in all I'm quiet satisfied can't wait for the official release on June 29.
Nine, 26 Jul 2015Do ebay ships phone to Philippines? I want to buy lumia 1520. A lot sellers on eBay ship worldwide, be sure to check the shipping information and import fees before purchasing though.
Lumia, 26 Jul 2015Any one tell me lumia 1520 get upcoming os updates for how much time (how many years) like win... moreLooking at the hardware of this phone I think future updates are pretty secure for this device, in general it's the same as the Lumia 930 which is the flagship still, so this phablet will get the Windows 10 update for sure, the hardware is still up to par. Can't tell about the newer opdates but I think you can at least enjoy updates for the next couple of years.
Any one tell me lumia 1520 get upcoming os updates for how much time (how many years) like windows 10.1 ,11 and other up coming os's
The Windows Store is the best option for you. You can download the setup files to your pc and then transfer them to the sd card for installation.
There is no Bittorrent for WP right now but there is another torrent client for WP (I forgot the name).
And as for side loading pirated apps you need to developer unlock the phone and use a Chinese application to do so. But you will lose the warranty once you developer unlock the phone. visit winphonehub.org for further steps
i have had this set 2 days before. Its really an amazing set. Every thing is running smoothly and steadily. Can anybody tell me the website from where I can install applications other than its own store. And how can I use bit torrent in it?
SushiMajesty, 21 Jul 2015Should work give it a try! I personally haven't used a samsung (too slow)Thanks a lot, will give it a shot.

I've noticed that waving it to cool myself als... moreYes it does, perhaps most of the heating issue is due to the processors being over worked and the graphic cards not supporting or eating up into the processor by consuming more power thanks high end games and no nano fans Smartphones to keep em cool, many users who own brands like mediatek or Intel Atom (Atom for sure) know what I'm talking about.
Many Mediatek processor face this issue when they come with only 1GB RAM on them, where most intel atom mobile devices just love getting the heat on for the smallest of applications. Don't be taken aback by the fact that they do touch temperature of about 35 degrees in some devices (Anything beyond 35degrees, is a major concern, it not like they'll explode or anything but, its better to have a regular pocket over a smoked pocket.)
Opt for the Sony 128 GB MSC, with 80MB/s. Its a better option than Samsung's 40MB/s, a 3GB file on a samsung sdc will take 3minutes to transfer it not laggy but, if you have a better speed it highly preferable. Many of samsung sdcard don't mention the writing speed.
