Yes, Do have wechat, viber, whatsapp and etc., u can check store before purchase it.
Hi all 1520 users.
Great phone, great camera, great screen, refreshing after 5 years of android. BUT.....android is more user friendly. For eg.
1. When in camera mode, you can enter gallery straight away by swiping to left. Cool user feature.
2. In music, you can create playlist of your collection and name it too, in android. Unfortunately cant find that option in WP.
3. In WhatsApp when u get a message the phone lights up. (wakes up) Tried all options in WP. Everytime I receive WhatsApp, my phone lights up, even at night, though i have set the night option.
4. Multitasking is way faster in android.
For first timers, would recommend android. Foe gadgets craze fans like me, I would love to try different platforms.
Hope WP8.1 solves mot of my queries above.
ENJOY your technology.
just bought this monstrous phone yesterday and directly updated it to wp8.1,.. and now I'm loving it,..j just an upgrade from my l920..:)
After roughly two weeks away, the Whatsapp Windows Phone app has returned to the Windows Store after a joint effort from Microsoft and Whatsapp.
Whatsapp originally pulled the app because of unspecified “technical issues,” though it has since come out that the problem appeared to be with how notifications were handled in the latest version of Windows Phone.
This phone is perfect on hardware as well as on software..
8.1 is simply stunning to use I don't know why people are still using Android
So much easy to use and focused on use not a toy
Display is the best ever on phone
Design so lovely really
No comparison in camera
Specs are 70% more than what it need such as CPU and RAM
Built Quality is so much solid and Awesome
Battery is super long

Eagerly awaiting 8.1 update. Does anyone have any idea when is the official update going to be released in Mumbai, India? I love the phone, after having used android for 5 years. Its refreshing.
I just bought Lumia 1520, its a good phone, at the same time im still using my note2, both of the phones is a good phone. Windows is more secure platform while android is an open sources, you can flash any rom into it, both of it have its advantage and disadvantage side. Its up to the end user what do they want.. For me I love both of its.. I can use both of its side by side depending on what I want and needs..
kishor, 09 Nov 2013samsung beter than nokia,,,Its not about Samsung and Nokia, its about android and windows.. Say windows on Samsung and android on Nokia.. For sure you will say Nokia is better than Samsung.
After using iPhone and Android for many years, I was skeptical to move to WP8.1 Believe me, it was this hardware that really attracted me and then WP 8.1, an awesome OS in the making. Understands the enterprise set up easily and becomes part of it in no time. SNS integration is better than Android. I find all the apps that I need in Windows Phone store. In a nutshell, superb UI/UX and I love this better than the other two.

Absolutely fantastic phone.
Syncs email, calendars, gotomeetings etc in such a nice way. Shooting meeting invitation or attending/hosting web conferences was never so easy.
Strongly recommended for business purposes.
AnonD-76824, 19 May 2014thanks buddy or i will switch to note 3, i thinkI have this phone and a galaxy note 10.1. I must tell u that even though there r apps that r more refined in android. The same case also lies for WP where many apps r better on WP. Many (very good ) apps and games in WP r not available in google play store....android is quite messy as well...most apps don't have widgets defying the point of homescreen in android while all apps in WP have live tiles and they r not messy as someone told u....they r quite handy and they make ur life alot easier (it's not just apps u can pin to start...it's everything; a note , an album , a radio station from tuneIn, route from Here maps...anything)...and oh, unless u live in the US, here maps r aloooooottt better than google maps, no wonder all automotive industry leaders have signed deals for it. The keyboard in Wp is also quite better. And WP8.1 has made things a lot better. Literally stunning. last but not the least the camera, not counting the 1020, this ie best camera on a phone u can get in the market...super amazing ....go for it and u won't regret it.
Ajay , 23 May 2014Buy it u will suffer in the end. Hmmm...well it seems most people who bought here r quite happy not suffering at all so go find somewhere else to troll
aaner, 22 May 2014It was the biggest mistake that ive done in my life. why did I even think of byuing nokia. I ... moreEnough with this crap...u don't have this phone or even any WP device...all true users here r recommending it and I totally agree with them...go troll somewhere else
dheeshan, 24 May 2014y???He's just trolling..
