Nokia will be another sole user of an OS as they seem to be the only players relasing phone.
So Blackberry and Aplle the other two
The pitch is high spec phones which is let down by the software
everything stops when you lock screen is effected
So the apps are preety useless afre that.
there is NO standalone security which would not work anyway
rak979, 21 Nov 2013Currently i am using iPhone4 and planning to change my phone. Is this phone wroth of buying. You can choose Windows Phone 8, for the OS is not mature. iOS I think is still better for apps and games.

Whichever you do does it ask what you need for breakfast and bring it on to your table or does it decide the grocery list for you?

Previously I used Lumia 520, for gave it a try, many restrictions made me dissapoint, now I use Android again.

The ''WP is a least intelligent phone'' claim is based on what? What do you expect a phone to intelligently do for you?
5 years ago windows mobile devices were barely usable, im not sure what you mean that it went bad after that?
The simplicity will appeal to some and not to others, i belive there is a whole lot of people who prefer a simple and clean interface to one where you have hundreds of different options just for setting the look of your homescreen. I will even guess that great many people that use for example android never change the factory preset settings for UI, homescreen, icons etc. So whats even the point then?
If you need your phone to be a deeply customizable computer, you already have android, but if not, WP is as good option as any. It all comes down to apps anyways.
And if you charge your phone 2-3 times a day then you must be doing something with the phone from the moment you wake up til the moment you go to bed, cause thats the only way that happens.
Thats my opinion, and i use android and WP.

This OS with these specs would have been amazing two-three years ago. I owned a number of Windows phones over the years. Until 5 years ago, they were still great. But now it feels like Microsoft has sorely lost it.
Nothing seems to keep the pace. Apps are uninspired and uninspiring; OS is clunky and unintuitive. Having to reset my phone to de-associate with one Microsoft account because I needed to map it to another feels like Windows 98.
Nokia Creative Studio feels like a bad joke: all it does is a sepia or other color filter applied over a photo - a gargantuan amount of creativity...
Look and feel simplicity would be appealing if it were not just plainly primitive instead (f.e. all you get to customize for the skin is the tiles color - is that all?).
Battery is meagre at best (need to recharge 2-3 times a day).
I realize the terms of posting are asking for polite opinions.
I've tried to do that honestly. But there are simply not many good things to say about this phone. It is way too far from the state of the art.

Raj, 13 Nov 2013i got the nokia lumia 820 but still i am fighting to get the FM radio option in there. how can... moreYou should update your Lumia firmware to Lumia Amber, then you will find radio FM inside Music+Video.
Overall this is a good Phone. Only downside is that the battery is weak.

WP 8.0 might not get WP 8.1 update after all but I'm sure Lumia 1520 will.
