Excerpt: This phone is enormous. When I took it out of the box I was in shock. In fact, I had considered sending it back, but after testing it in my various pant pockets to ensure that it fit, I decided not to; and I am glad that I didn't. It only took a few days to get used to the size and now using smaller phones, particularly those as small as the iPhone, feels like child's play. Between the screen's size and resolution watching video and playing games in unparalleled.
Pros: This phone is unlocked and works flawless on AT&T. LTE speeds using Speedtest.net have a maximum of 38MBS in my area. The phone is thinner than my Nokia 920 and weighs about the same. Feels nice in the hand and the screen is bright even in direct sunlight.
Cons: The only con I have is that with polarized sunglasses on and viewing in landscape the screen turns a little bluish, but not bad.
Summary: Hard to believe Microsoft is playing catch up, but glad they partnered with Nokia. All that's needed is time for better apps.
Pros: Outstanding hardware that is far superior to the Galaxy Note 3. Screen technology is outstanding. Phone works on T-Mobile USA LTE network and achieved approximately 30 MBPS down in good areas of LA according to speedtest.net. Recognized Sandisk Ultra micro SDXC UHS-I 128 GB card.
Cons: Phone arrived DOA. Used Nokia Software Recovery Tool to reload phone image. App support is dismal, and those that are available are handicapped compared to android counterparts. Had to manually configure APN settings to get to phone working with T-Mobile LTE, settings T-Mobile provided over the phone were incorrect, I took setting off of Galaxy Note 3 (T-Mobile Addition). After restore, OS is Windows 8.0, not 8.1.
Excerpt: I was not a big fan of Microsoft and Nokias windows choice.. i was at The Gathering 14 and was watching Oculus Rift and they where talking about what was coming to windows phone and platform etc. , i took up a windows phone that i hated, cause i was android fan.. im never going to change! if you...
Summary: The order handling on this was less than satisfactory. I ordered on a Thursday with two-day shipping. It didn't leave the warehouse until Monday, and it went ground. I wasn't in my hands until the following Thursday. I did find a sympathetic CSA from NewEgg who refunded my shipping charges.
Pros: After six year of carrying Android phones, I was itching for a change of pace, but nothing from the Windows Phone line-up available for T-Mobile enticed me. This phone changed that. This version (Lumia 1520.3/RM-938) is intended for the Latin American market. The by product of that is that it operates on all the bands required to make it a perfect fit for T-Mobile (and AT&T as well). Obviously, a person has to like BIG phones to be comfortable with this, but I do and ...
Cons: The only thing at this point would be that Windows Phone is lacking in some of the apps available to iOS and Android users, but it's come a long way and I've found just about everything I use on a regular basis.
Pros: I have been a long time windows phone user and recently traded out my Samsung focus for this one. I like the screen real estate and windows 8 is awsesome. quad core processor and US LTE bands. this is the phone to get if you don't want to get hosed by ATT and use a different provider.
Cons: the phone barely fits in my pocket, but it is very thin so it's not too cumbersome.
