First I will say that windows 8 is AMAZING. I had the Nokia Lumia 920 and likes a lot of the personalization features but it lacked my Pandora, pinterest, myfitnesspal, Spotify, and other apps I use daily so I went back to IPhone.

NOW, Onto the Lumia 1520. I had the IPhone 4S. I liked a lot about my iphone but was bored. Seems like since Steve Jobs passing...theres nothing awing about new phones 5, 5c and 5s. Same ol Same ol EXCEPT now...a lot of my apps are always crashing. My wifi isn't that strong in my room, my front camera quit...and it's almost the same as the first iPhone. A lot of good changes but not very many customization features for me. Plus with apple products...EVERYTHING costs.

BEFORE PURCHASE: I decided to get Nokia Lumia 1520 BECAUSE

1. Supposedly had many of the apps that I previously could not get on my old Nokia
2. More customization with Windows 8
3. Beautiful Big Screen Like a Tablet
4. Amazing Camera by Carl Zeiss
5. Mostly...Side by Side comparison that I did with IPhone 5c, 5s and Lumia 1020.
(if you can do this side by side comparison which I did on AT&T...I would do it because it answers a lot of questions and made my decision 100%)
6. Ability to Expand storage with the miniSD port
7. Ability to get phone in yellow. It was a hard decision between yellow and red because they are both beautifully vibrant but I went with yellow because I love the brighter.

Amazed by color brightness, screen brightness, size and beautiful camera.

In the first few days I learned a few more awesome things

1. the Lumia now does SnapShot and if you are or have been an iPhone user this is awesome.

Nokia built an amazing phone with customized applications and Windows Phone 8 performs flawlessly. Super fast processor, smooth video; you can finally watch a video and listen to it with Bluetooth headphones (mine is Plantronics backbeat 903+).

For those skeptical regarding applications, there is Instagram and Whatsapp for W8 (download is free for both) and many more free apps, although Lumia 1520 brings a load of essential applications.

Very advisable to buy a cover, not only for its protection but for a better handling. I found the device extremely slippery in my hands. I purchased a cover with kick stand, so I can eat and read or watch a video.

W8 automatically backs up most your data (pics, docs and videos) to skydrive, which is very convenient. All contacts I had on my HTC HD7 (Windows phone 7.5) was imported as soon as I register my accounts (Hotmail, Facebook and Google) even without the sim card. A great feature is that you can access your Lumia 1520 from your PC as if it is an external hard drive. You can also receive and send several kinds of files via Bluetooth. The NFC (Near Field Communication) is amazing!!

I still donnot understand people who rather pay a lot more for an IPhone or Android!!

I also purchased a 32Gb micro SD (you can install up to 64Gb), which is another feature Iphones don't have.

Also amazing is the battery. You will now have a phone that will keep up with you all day, provided you make a normal use of it. Remember to charge it, use it until battery runs out and charge it again, so that your battery will be optimized.

Only disappointment regards to the charger which is European. Although seller sends (at no cost) an American adapter, it gets to be a very clumsy piece (both together).

Alright people, I'll admit I made a buy without enough research into how the unlocked phone will work on US carriers. So to try and help people avoid the issue I ran into I'll try and highlight something I completely missed. This particular model works with T-Mobile, except YOU WILL NOT GET 4G/LTE connections. The RM-938 model (AT&T version) is the only Lumia 1520 that can make use of 4G/LTE on T-Mobile (as far as I know).

Additionally, I installed WP 8.1 on it and here's a few things to note:
- On the device I received, the locale wasn't set to US. The keyboard and other region settings were either in Chinese or English (UK). If you want to get Cortana to work, you'll have to make sure your region settings are set to US.
- I had a few account sync issues and had to do a factory reset after installing WP 8.1, doing the factory reset does not get rid of WP 8.1 (which is nice).
- A lot of popular apps still don't take full advantage of the added screen real estate provided by the higher resolution. Expect text and other in-app UI elements to be a little blown up (probably wouldn't bother most people)
- I've seen many reviews say its impossible to operate this phone with one hand. I can do most tasks like texting, browsing and making calls (especially with WP 8.1 installed) using one hand without too much trouble. I even have a phone case which slightly increases its dimensions. I don't have the hands of a basketball player either.
- My device takes a considerably longer time to fully charge than my other WP devices (Lumia 925 and HTC 8X) but that's to be expected given it has a larger battery and lasts a lot longer on one charge
- I'd strongly recommend getting some sort of case or cover for this phone because the surface of the phone can get really slippery.
