Anonymous, 14 Jul 2015If you've been using iOS or Android, make sure all the apps you need are found in their WP store.Not all apps are available on Window Market unlike Android OS. But, atleast there not much nonsense filled there for starters. On the contrary they are some significant apps you may never find on Windows Market place like you'd find on android. So yes, if your app-fanatic Windows phone isn't what your looking for.

Mohab, 12 Jul 2015i'm about to but this phone but i was wondering if it supports windows 10? and if not what win... moreYes, the device is on the list to receive update on the OS Windows 10 on OTA, the windows 10 update I've noticed those who are using the beta version aren't very happy about a few things but, since its not the final version it hard to say if Microsoft is listening to the beta users feedback. The major changes is OS 10 is that there no more Internet Explorer and its been replaced with a faster and secure browser, the long list of setting options are gone and it stream lined better than what it was so you dont have the never end list and you don't have to scroll down too much unlike in the current windows 8 Denim update the main screen has changed now instead of having your background image on the live tiles, the changes remind you of Android device as you have 2 layers of the theme screen the background image on which a layer of the live tiles can be see, where in the live tiles look transparent on top of the background screen which looks good the background theme can be seen when you enter the application menu as well.
The downers though is once you change the theme from Windows denim update to the window 10 theme on the start up screen and app menu, you cannot change the theme to what it was previously. This may be a turn of too many like me. But, its fine you'll take some time getting used to it. Like I mentioned earlier the beta version does have some issues, we are waiting for the final product from Microsoft. It very difficult for me to convince you to opt for it, cuz they are very high chances you may or may not like it. I recommend you look up video on youtube of the Windows 10 beta updated before you decide to buy the phone.
i'm about to but this phone but i was wondering if it supports windows 10? and if not what windows phone devices worth buying? thanks in advance

Seriously I don't understand why some people ask some dumb f**k question about heating issues. Phone unlike laptops and Tower PC's dont come with fan so when you do play high end games or use multiple applications tend to heat up its common why ask?
Seriously I'm dumb fond by the question from some people ask on gsmarena.com

Anonymous, 07 Jul 2015Tnx ThefireBert & Smushi Majesty for your replies on my post.i know the NL1520 is still a ... moreMy dear anonymous friend, trust me and pick up a SN 4. You'll never regret it. The guy after me loves the NL1520 so he gave you more reasons to be confused about the device.
Its like going to a Car Showroom the sales person says Mr. Anon this is the new 2015 Contienental GT has the new tip tronic ABS, EBD, Motion Sensor, finger print sensor etc where as the car on your left is a 2010 contienental GT but with 250hp less than the new one it doesnt have ABS, EBD, etc.., But, yet both have something that will keep you smiling about. Now which car would you go for the old or the new?
Tnx ThefireBert & Smushi Majesty for your replies on my post.i know the NL1520 is still a contender when compared to these new releases,for me i like the NL1520 but the spec on the SGN4 is also off the chain,....tht's why i had 2 pop the question.& even now i'm more confuse because the two devices R dope.
Ronnie, 06 Jul 2015Hello friends,please i've been wanting 2 ask.for the good old 1520 Lumia & Galaxy Note 4 w... moreUnless you get a Note 4 from Korea (SM-N910S) then your specs comparisons become much more competitive.
First of all, the Note 4 is a about a year newer release wise. Normally technology leaps for cell phones is about 6 months, but the Note 4 takes a backseat this round. I will say the TV-out feature is a notable difference.
In screen size, the Lumia 1520 is a beast, and very few phones even now compare. The comparable screen to body ratios are 71.4:74.2, meaning that the Note 4 has a bigger screen for lesser body, but has a lot less screen overall.
The Note 4 has 3GB of RAM vs. 2GB in the Lumia 1520, but since the Note 4 is Android, I would discount the extra 1GB of RAM due to normal RAM usage in an Android device, so a dead heat there.
The Lumia 1520 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad-2.2GHz processor, which can have a huge advantage in speed over many of the Note 4 variants that come with the Samsung Exynos 5433 processors in single application speed. That being said, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 in the North American version, along with Europe, China, Japan, and other markets would certainly have a slight advantage (about 1/2 GHz) speed wise. Considering Android's constant background app usage, one could consider this an even match.
The camera is much better on the Lumia 1520, especially taking in the fact that it is almost a full year older. Unless taking 1080p video @ 60fps is required (movies are played back at 48fps in theaters), the Lumia tops the video recording too. features too.
Misc. specs: The battery life is much better in the Lumia in all aspects. The Note 4 has fingerprint reader and stylus. Both phones have upgradeable OS with the latest OS pre-installed. Lumia 1520 seems to have better sunlight readable display. Note 4 seems to have a slightly better noise tolerance.
Summary: The Note 4 seems to have some flexibility, and takes advantage of the Android's OS to do so. The Lumia comes packed with more hardware features, along with a smoother OS experience. I think the choice could come down to critical apps more than anything - the Windows Phone market has nearly caught up, but the developers are still having fits over developing for more than two platforms (lazy bums).
Personal Opinion: I would go for the Lumia 1520, but I prefer functionality over extreme style, and the 1520 does indeed have more functionality over the Note 4. Once Windows 10 comes out for the phone, I expect and even better experience for all top shelf Windows Phones, especially when full Office applications finally arrive and Continuum is a part of the phone/big screen conversion process. Continuum will make the TV-out feature look like a cheap parlor trick.
Ronnie, 06 Jul 2015Hello friends,please i've been wanting 2 ask.for the good old 1520 Lumia & Galaxy Note 4 w... moreRonnie, the Lumia 1520 is a monster, so is the Samsung Note 4 the Lumia 1520 is mostly known for its awesome battery backup of 102+ hours of heavy usage and a 20mp clearview camera which makes it a strong contender. But, I couldn't compare it to the Samsung note 4 which is way superior than that of the Nokia Lumia 1520 (this phone was released 2.5yrs ago) it would be really foolish to compare 2 of these devices.
Well let me give you a low down, first understand what you want from a phone, are you a kind of person who gets carried away by oodles of fancy apps which android offers which is the least when compared to Windows which has the least (growing as I write this reply.) You'll not notice the difference of screen size on the Note 4 at 5.7" when compared to 6" on the Lumia 1520, Lumia devices use less RAM when compared to Android in idle time when compared to Android which has lot of things going for it in the background. The Samsung Note 4 has a better, upgraded processor more RAM and a Stylus which makes it use a large phablet without any issues which doesn't exist on Nokia device. I'm not sure about the camera quality on the Samsung Note 4, I strongly recommend you go for the Note 4, give NL 1520 a miss. Camera quality can improve with software updates.
So, like I said your getting a much better piece of equipment when you opt for the SN4 when compared to NL1520 which is aging very slowly. Don't bother what other have to say just go get your SN4 bud!
Hello friends,please i've been wanting 2 ask.for the good old 1520 Lumia & Galaxy Note 4 which is better?...bcos'the 1520 is not a slacker & its upgradable to the windows 10.
I got this cell in 2015 but I must Tel no smartphone is in the competition can even beat iPhone 6
What do you mean, when you say " I would buy if 1520 if no queries. " what that even supposed to mean?

Pls can anyone help me I am still using Windows 8 on my Lumia 1520 how can I update to W8.1 denim, I have been checking for the update on my phone it keeps saying your phone is up to date. Any help please
Sam, 30 Jun 2015Sorry, the message got posted accidentally, I just wanna ask is their any application availabl... moreWell Sam, Microsoft doesn't have anything in particular a native application for locking specific applications, you need to download app lock a third party app from the marketplace. Secondly with reference to the lock screen you do have a Basic 4 and 6 digit phone lock you can do by accessing the wake-up screen options or security settings.
With reference to Whatsapp, and if you wish to ensure nobody can peek into your private conversations then I suggest give Whatsapp locker a change, I personally havent' used it but, it seems fine. To ensure the application is working you need to unpin the Whatsapp file on your start screen and after installing Whatsapp Locker you pin the Whtatsapp tile back and enjoy privacy.
I hope this answers your temporary issues you were facing with reference to phone or app lock. Unlike Blackberry devices, Microsoft has poor Phone lock and App lock options.
