Many people are complaining about the size of this phone, I have used Lumia 1520 for 6 months now and I will never buy a phone that is less than 6" because that is the future sweet spot screen size. Remember when the screens were 3.5"people were saying 4" is so huge. Then 4" became the ideal size moved to 4.5" and now at 5". I have read many phone reviews and I can clearly see that most people consider 5.5" screen as greatness! Follow the trend in less than 2years 6" will be the size for flagships. My Lumia 1520 has everything perfect and I feel bad when people criticize a perfect phone. Successor not needed yet!!
Believe me.i have experience both android and windows phone. .Windows os is much faster than android. .and I love my lumia 1520 because no lag like my lg g3 and Samsung s5. .camera quality is superb .no errors with the phone works great. Nokia your time is now..Cheers NOKIA and MICROSOFT.
1) It is a Pineapple and NOT an orange or an apple. So I would not compare it to any other mobile on Android or iOS platform.
2) It is BIG, BULKY, AWKWARD and SWEET very much like a Pineapple. But there will always be people who does not like Pineapple.
Saying the above, it has been a constant companion to me for the last 3 months. It has been a companion for my Laptop. It has been a companion for my mobile requirements (call/msg/surf/video). And most of all, it has been a constant companion for my DSLR.
Since I have invested on this phone, the amount of time I spend on my Laptop has reduced drastically. How it has reduced, I'm yet to figure out. Maybe, I'm checking my Office Exchange, Gmail and Outlook under the same roof. Maybe my calender is synced in better. Maybe, the browsing experience is better. Maybe it has a great camera. Or maybe, I just like the phone.
With the availability of the dedicated camera button, life has become more pictorial. Snap and Share. Simple. I don't worry about the quality. It is perfect companion for your DSLR where you do not want to go around carrying your bulky DSLR. And then there's the RAW file for fanatics to edit around. Loads of Editing Apps in the store (Lumia Creative Studio, Fotor, etc.).
Extra few bits, wonderful clarity and at times would give an AMOLED a hard time. Daytime clarity is very good. Images and Videos are bright, clear and crisp. Good sound quality. Funnily enough, albeit being a 6-incher, it fits quite comfortably and doesn't feel a bit hefty.

It is almost 40k. So costly in india, that people who are willing to actually use windows platform cant!
As the low and mid windows phones don't provide the required necessary specifications which are readily available in android at a much less price! At this rate, they can never grasp market with their flagship range.

Riniss, 07 Nov 2014 i need suggestion from someone, i dont know if i should get Lumia 1020,930 0r 1520... i know ... moreHi,
. Go for 1520 if u like 6inch diplay,20mp camera,hansome design,powerful like a beast,but when to try to take pics in complete dark ur are going to suffer from serious blur
. On the hand Lumia 1020 is good for those who are crazy about pics,my first windows phone was 1020, even from the darkness of hell u can take crytal clear pic thanks to huge xenon flashlight
. if flash light is about I would like to take torchlight with me with 1520 to deal with blur
. the most important part ur hands length mine is about 8inch from top of my centre finger to end of my hand ✋.I don't know whether my hand tall or short but iam unable to use 1520 in one hand better check in near Nokia dealers
. I would suggest 1520.in my opinion 1520 is all-rounder
I own Lumia 1520(red)32gb,the very first problem is iam unable to take clean shots in the nights, photos get blur and sometimes myphone gets very hot,rest is good,it is beautifully made ilove the design,but I want Microsoft to think about os,because even if iam paying 9k iam going to get same technology.so,I have to pay 49k(in rupee)to get good hardware. At the last Nokia 1520 or any other device of nokia is far more better than phone maker
Riniss, 07 Nov 2014 i need suggestion from someone, i dont know if i should get Lumia 1020,930 0r 1520... i know ... morechoose 1520...because it is the only high-end smartphone of lumia that has a microSD card slot, for me, having a card slot is important especially for backing up your important pictures, also the camera quality is also the best, check the reviews and also the comparison of camera quality...
i want to buy this phone...it has a microSD card slot...how much is it now anyway?
