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.
old school, 21 Jul 2015I use my large 1520 as a hand-held fan as well. 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.

carol, 15 Jul 2015hi im from philippines.. i just want to know if this phone is still in the market? some said i... moreHey carol, I would advice you to wait for a months time before you go buy the Nokia Lumia 1520. Why? Cuz Microsoft is coming with the Lumia 940xl with has a better tricks up its sleeves and above all has the same 20mp camera as well the only draw back is the 940xl may not have a storage expansion slot like the 1520.
I got mine because my first phone was the Nokia, and I wanted to have the last ever Nokia device as well in my kitty of old Nokia phone I have collected over the years.

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.
