    Fantastic, world class phone

    This phone is without peer in the current market. Note - the brief summary in the Best Buy search results state this phone has a 2.3 GHz *dual* core CPU -- that is incorrect. It has a 2.2 GHz QUAD-core Snapdragon 800 processor. Because Windows Phone is such a lighter, more efficient operating system, it doesn't need nearly as much processing power and RAM to achieve the same results as compared to Android. The result: this phone is so smooth and it is such a joy to use. Cortana is brilliant - kudos to Microsoft for this feature. And the 20 MP camera is stunning! The Lumia "Denim" firmware update currently being rolled out to this phone is making improvements to the camera processing software that will once-again place Lumia atop the mobile photography food chain. PocketNow has already reviewed the Denim updates on a Lumia 930 (same camera hardware as the 1520) and declared the photography results superior to the iPhone 6 in every way, including speed. The rapid-capture 4k video feature alone is amazing.

    This phone is perfectly designed, from the Windows OS to the size and function. I use this phone all the time for work, (e.g. 4 separate email accounts, photos for reference, One Note for notes) I can access my Excel and Word docs with the greatest of ease. The 6" size of the screen did make me hesitate at first but I am not regretting it as my eye sight is getting worse through the years (I'm 35 now) I cannot imagine using a smaller screen... well maybe a 5", but this phone is perfect for me. If you're looking for a phone for work related apps and function then this is perfect for you too (perhaps) I also enjoy the ever increasing game selections (shhh, don't tell my boss)

    This smartphone is more than I expected . It is much more complete than an iPhone : Better battery durability , better picture quality on screen as photos taken with the camera 20 mp cell . With relation to perform work is very fast , is multitasking and the great advantage of having Office and One Drive ( which I consider a lot better than iCloud ) . In short it is an excellent and worthy competition for Apple and especially the iPhone. I believe that this time Microsoft to ally with Nokia has hit the mark . Thanks for getting me back to the essence of PC vs. Mac , and can not imagine the Surface 3 against the iPad 4 yeah !!!!

    This is a replacement for Nokia 1020 which I dropped and smashed to smithereens. I really wanted another 1020 but there were none available from Best Buy, having a replacement contract I couldn't get it elsewhere. I find the 1520 is actually the same phone as far as I'm concerned. BUT, I hadn't read the small print to see that the 1520 is larger. A little shock at first, but I adapted very quickly and like its size. It's a top drawer phone, camera, and the Outlook files I'm used to--plus all the other features. Also more tiles appear on the screen. I've not been extra cautious with it and it's holding up well.

    This is an awesome phone, super fast processor, crystal clear screen able to display another row of tiles. great set of features! the camera is incredible, capable of stunning photos! Sturdy and maximum screen real estate. XBOX smart glass turn your phone into a second screen allows your devices and TV to communicate and gives added content to shows, movies and games. Well done all around.

    This phone is equally gorgeous and powerful. I swtiched to this device from an iPhone last July (just thinking maybe I'd try out something different for a while), and I've never looked back. Great for work & play. Photos, games and videos are fast, crisp, bright, & HUGE. MS-Office apps run as if on a PC. This phone is basically a mini-Surface tablet that also makes calls. It's a big, beautiful beast of a device.

    Good BIG phone overall. Only complaint I have over the time I've had the phone is that the screen was really sensitive and would register a click on the screen when I was trying to swipe. Didn't happen every time but enough to become annoying sometimes. But I've read not every phone had that problem. Lucky me

    Really a nice phone the only thing I've noticed is I believe bug which makes the sound disappears and I have to restart the phone, and interfere with the NFC connection and bluetooth devices
