After using this phone for more than 2 months i have some pros and cons to share with you guys.... And i will remind you that i have upgraded to wp8.1 developer preview which i will say about it later..
I love gaming in this device though due to wp some games arent available but still the ones that are available are simply outstanding i feel like am playing console games...
The sound is pretty loud for a mobile device and i personally liked the sound very much..
Hmmm it depends on what you wear... if your tall and have big pockets and big palm then the device is for you or else consider lumia 930
it has 20mpx camera and the outdoor pics are awesome but indoor pics have some colour tints.. it may be because of wp8.1 dp... and nokia has promised to improve imaging performance with lumia cyan update
Its simply outstanding..!!! No other display could come close to it...With 1080p display reading is not a problem.... still amoled would have been perfect but nonetheless lcd is good too....
with snapdragon 800 processor everyday tasks is simply amazing with it for some apps it takes 2-3 sec to resume may be in official release of wp8.1 this may get fixed...
It comes with 2 gigs of ram which is quite sufficient for now and for future like 1-2 years... i wish it had 3 gigs still 2 gigs is enough...
Call quality: 10/10
As usual with nokia its EXCELLENT!!!
Though i dont say polycarbonate build is bad but my 1520 slipped out of my hand and fell down facing the edge of mobile and guess what? a small crack appeared at the right end of the display.. and a small strip is visible whenever i power it on from lockscreen and gradually it fades away as i use...and now to fix it it costs me like more than 15000rs (250usd+)
Now lets talk about wp8.1 developer preview... Should you upgrade???
I upgraded my phone somewhere in mid may and till now i recieved three update (minor update) and my thoughts are
its 95% stable, i installed like more than 110 apps (including games) and the phone doesnt lags a bit... but the music app is worst... and hangs whenever i hit songs.... and when you play heavy games like asphalt 8 and modern combat 4 suddenly the fps drops and there's lag....hope the official realease will fix this... and some users reported heating up and malfunctioning of mic and other things... i personally dint experience heating though it gets heat when you play games but thats obvious with these smartphones... and about mic malfunction i can say that it may be defective unit.... but feature wise i would like to say it brings hell lot of things to wp8... once you upgrade to wp8.1 you never go back.... the small things which bothered me most are now fixed in wp8.1... Now should you upgrade???? hmmm i would personall say NO not cause it has problems but the official realease is just a few days far... if u have waited this long i would say you guys to wait some more time and also you wont void the warranty.... If you guys need additional info or have trouble with the phone, i will be glad to help you... So best of luck guys...

nabilsy, 06 Jul 2014I already have this beast and its impressing me sincs i have bought it .. But i just wanna ask... moreI bought this beast month ago.. U wanna know how unique this baby is?.. Do a search on gsm.. Its the only 6inch full hd phone with 20mp and 3400mah battery.. ONLY ONE. nothing similar out there. The screen is the best thing about it.
Hey Guys, I think Lumia 630 is much better than Lumia 1520 according to technical specification, nonetheless the display is 4.5 inchs and the price is low.... What're your opinions?
I already have this beast and its impressing me sincs i have bought it .. But i just wanna ask .. Is there any smartphone rollin now better than this monster ! And if the answer is yes .. Samsung is not included .. Cuz in my opinion its just a shity toys company no more no less .. Lg g3 maybe ? Sony z2 ?
Cuz i really beleive that this handset is one in a million and its one of a kind .. Nothing campared with it
Yer opinion guys ..
Hassanteyz, 05 Jul 2014bought my Lumia 1520 32GB (RM-937) in late May 2014. best decision ever! was gonna go for Note... moreI bought mine about two weeks ago upgraded it to wp8.1 preview for developers, apart from the heating up the other things work fine...i realised some of the games that I downloaded heat up the phone so I don't play those specific games because the advantages of wp8.1 outweigh the disadvantages
Hassanteyz, 05 Jul 2014bought my Lumia 1520 32GB (RM-937) in late May 2014. best decision ever! was gonna go for Note... moreThat is why I have been waiting since April...!
and still do..
but the good news cayan update still to roll out!
I love this Pahbu but I can't afford it..
And please don't upgrade to WP8.1 Developers Preview just wait till Officially they announce the upgrade hopefully till August it is gonna be available
bought my Lumia 1520 32GB (RM-937) in late May 2014. best decision ever! was gonna go for Note 3 1st but weeks of researching between note 3 and lumia 1520, i finally went for 1520. i upgraded it to wp8.1 in the 1st week after i got it... my suggestion? DONT upgrade your wp to wp8.1 on DP (developer's preview) its NOT stable, my lumia started to HEAT UP and in just about 4 days after the upgrade my headset that came with the phone, the mic stopped working. i IMMEDIATELY downgraded my lumia 1520 to its original WP8 Black and thankfully the issues were fixed for me. and after researching on a lot of forums, it seems that some users weren't as lucky as i am, for most the problem was PERMANENT and they had to get the their phones replaced. so in conclusion, the 1520 is great, just don't upgrade it to wp8.1 on DP, official wp8.1 i don't know yet. take care of your lumia, my fellow Lumians :)
If you like taking pictures/selfie this lumia is best for you i got my lumia 1520 for me i will rate it as 9/10 i like the performance,features,camera of this smartphone.
Punith33, 03 Jul 2014don't go for Samsung galaxy s5... below are my justifications. anyone of you can tell me i... moreYes i agree with you..lumia 1520 is the best..im using this in black. Great specs in huge super sensitive touch screen. I love Nokia

tonigirl, 03 Jul 2014I love the Nokia Lumia I will be up grading to the 1520 it looks like a fabulous phoneindeed it is. well said and good decision.
its a great come back by nokia family.
baby, 23 Apr 2014My dear users,don't update 8.1,terrible one,battery drains quickly and heating quickly.8 is better.Turn off Battery Saver to run in background.
You do this by going to Battery saver app and then "Show all apps"
And find "Battery Saver" and turn off "Allow App run in the BG"
I did it on my NL920 and now it works fine.
Try it. It may also work for you.
