Potemkin, 28 Jul 2014"Windows Phone 8.1 still doesn't offer a full-featured and system-wide file manager. Vari... moreIm way too busy to open a file manager and edit my files. Most of the people who can afford phones like these are busy indeed. File manager is nit necessary. Get lost
Haha samsung s voice sounds like a robot. Siri sounds like a pretty girl. Siri is more realistic.
This phone isn't good in any way. Stupid Microsoft ruined it. Overheating, poor battery performance, no microSD and so on.
I just don't get it.
Lumia 1520 has 3400mAh battery and lasts 106hrs
Lumia 930 has 2400mAh battery and lasts 46hrs
With same specs only smaller screen. My logic would be that it would last at least 80hrs. Battery is only 30% less powerfull.
I own note 2 now, can't wait to change platform to wp. I was hoping for 930 but I think I will go for 1520.
Hmm, 29 Jul 2014My note 2 can last up to 3 days on one charge!If your note 2 lasts 2 days. The Lumia 1520 can last a week. Lumia 1520 has best battery life out there.
I have a Lumia 930 and so far it has surpassed all my expectations coming from an iphone 5s.
Under fairly heavy use the battery easily lasts me a day. Longer than my iphone and prev htc one m8.
I'm running essentially the same apps across all 3 platforms and phones. I like all three operating systems as they all have their respective advantages and disadvantages. So a fan boi of all lol.
Really happy with the phone.
Def worth trying it in store in person if you can.
Hmm, 29 Jul 2014My note 2 can last up to 3 days on one charge!My Samsung Ativ S lasts up to a week with my usage, so, what's your point exactly?
What about the camera startup and shot-to-shot speed? On Lumia 1020 this is a real problem: about 6 seconds to start and sometimes 10 seconds to save the photo.
pitoz, 29 Jul 2014Such a shame battery life, worst of all phone :-) Not true..........NEC managed to create some phones for 3 which would last 2 hours. Lol
G*, 28 Jul 2014Nokia should make a phone like this run Android, the Nokia X didnt have great specs but attrac... moreNokia phone division is no more please stop with Nokia should build a android........
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2014Lumia 1520 has best battery life. No Android can match.My note 2 can last up to 3 days on one charge!
No 2160p video recording??
Tell me why this is a disadvantage in a world where 2k displays are currently unnecessary and rare?
dheerajmehta, 29 Jul 2014Ascend Mate 2Granted the Mate 2 has better battery life, but also worse specs. 720p Screen (Mate 2) vs 1080p (1520), Snapdragon 400 (Mate 2) vs Snapdragon 800 (1520) and that's just a start. The Mate 2 is a budget phablet, the 1520 has the best battery performance of any Flagship smartphone or phablet.
Guys, I really don't Know what battery life you're talking about?!? I use to change phones approx. 3 times/year and none of them had batt life that could lasts for more than 15hrs of use. Every single phone I had to charge every night! Same is with this Nokia. Sick of reading Android funboys talking about great batteries in Sammy and rest of lagdroids. I had a lotof them and they are same as any other phone.
Don't get me wrong i really like this phone, and Windows Phone. But it heats up when using basic functions. There is a terrible purple tint to the device, and the camera is just too complicated when comparing to the iPhone.
I sent my one back cause of the heat and purple tint issues.
I found the battery to actually be quite good, after a week i was getting a whole day (not just work hours) use out of it. It was great to hold and use too. Call quality was excellent. And i do actually like Windows Phone 8.1 as an OS.
If all these issues were to get resolved, this phone would be a winner.
