Hands are sore...from all the high 5's!

  • Excerpt: First off, this is a great looking handset. Immediately, strangers were complimenting me on how "awesome looking" my phone is and how great the screen is. Can't blame them; the screen on this badboy is gorgeous and has a lot of real estate. Definitely makes looking at photos, documents, webpages, etc a lot easier. I'm a recent convert to Windows Phone (coming from Android) and the process was a lot easier than I expected.
  • Pros: Color, Display, Ease of Use, Windows 81, Windows Phone 81
  • Cons: Accessories

This is a phone review

  • Summary: I purchased this because we were switching from ATT to Tmobile. I did not activate it on ATT at all. Tmobile transfer went great though I had to go to a local store to get my SIM cut. The Tmo dude cut it for me, installed it, and everything was smooth as butter. A few things: this guy, sporting a Note 3, had some serious "Screen Envy" (his words). Too funny.
  • Pros: My ARS likes phones with good batteries. Best battery of a modern phone I've ever used. Coincidentally, the last best battery I've ever used was my trusted Nokia e61i. I still have that thing in a drawer somewhere. Back to this beast: the display is great and the OS snappy. I updated to 8.1 without issue. I have not installed Update 1 as of this writing as we are on vacation and didn't think that was the wisest thing to do while we're away.
  • Cons: The size if you're not prepared for it and, for me, slow re-charging times. That might be because I'm not using the charger that came with it (it's at home), though. I did switch the screen sensitivity from high to medium and like that feel a little better.

Exactly as Described - Great Phone

  • Excerpt: This is my first smartphone and was looking specifically for a Windows phone that had qi charging capabilities. This particular model of the Lumia 1520 is difficult to find, but was glad B&H had it available. It is exactly what I was looking for...Works great as an unlocked phone with AT&T in the USA and am successfully using the Nokia 910 and 900 qi chargers at work and home.
  • Pros: Bt Works With Tv Radio, Built-in Qi Charging, Can Add 64gb More Memory, Good Phone Device, Large Sharp Display, Works Well On Att Network
  • Cons: A Bit On "large" Side

Absolutely stunning but slightly too large at the same time

  • Summary: Bought as a larger replacement for my Nokia 920, the 6 inch screen dazzles but I must say, is just a little larger than I thought. I think the most natural, perfect fit will be splitting the difference between the 1520 and 920 frame sizes and make the screen as big as possible to fit that frame. The OS is Windows 8 (soon to be upgraded automatically to 8.1) so no surprises, never locks up and has a great reception and Bluetooth receiver.

good phone, OS still needs improvment

  • Excerpt: the OS is not as fluent as IOS or android, its not as straight forward as it should be. the OS lacks many common features and this is the main down part of this phone. aside from this its hardware is absolutely top quality.

Product made for China

Mihai Buleu, Amazon

  • Summary: I received the product and the manual and almost everything else was in Chinese. First I thought its a replica and called Nokia customer service. After providing the IMEI they confirmed it as being a genuine Nokia. Although I like the phone very much I give it 4 stars because it doesn't have the pins for wireless charging. Maybe this is typical for Chinese market?

Great phone so far

  • Summary: This is the only model that will fully support all T-Mobile bands. New egg has the information wrong. It also has 32 GB of space.
  • Pros: This phone is smooth and fast. To me the screen size is a pro. The email and calendar client is great. Camera is very awesome, even in low light. This phone does include the AWS band for T-Mobile (1700/2100). It has 32 GB of storage space and has a micro SD card slot.
  • Cons: If you are into apps then you may be disappointed. The screen size can be a turn off to some.

The best cellphone yet!

rbdave, Amazon

  • Summary: Six months ago I purchased my first Apple, an iPad mini with AT&T LTE. I've grown somewhat tired of its operating system...one designed to be workable for any IQ above room temperature. Because of Apple's aversion to menus, icons, and especially the Back Button, one is forced to use animal-like gestures to accomplish the most elementary functions. The fact that it works perfect almost all the time makes it worthwhile, of course.

Seems slow

Josephine, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my first Windows phone, and I have switched from Android. I really like the phone. Con: I wish it would respond faster, especially when I rotate the device. I'm also looking forward to their app store to get up to date. I can't get Snapchat to work, and several other apps are missing. I also don't get notifications from Facebook/Messenger. Pros: Battery life is AMAZING! The camera is great. Setting up new e-mail accounts was a breeze.
