Great battery life, don't even think about it anymore. Whereas with all my previous android phones I had to constantly know where the closest charger was, just in case. This easily makes it through the day with just the overnight charge. It's a complete non-issue.
Touch Responsiveness is very smooth. On the level or just slightly above that on my iPad, and it absolutely destroys the smoothness (or lack) of any android device I've ever had or tried.
Really great camera hardware AND software. Lots of cool stuff you can do with this camera.
Large screen is really great for reading. The large keyboard makes typing really easy and efficient. I thought the size of the phone may be a negative for this phone when I got it, but it's probably the opposite. The larger screen allows for so many positive things. If you have small hands it may be an issue I guess, but not so bad for my medium-sized hands. It does require two-hand usage in a lot of scenarios, but I'm pretty used to it.
App depth is not as good as iOS or Android. This is a given, but I have found almost every app I've needed. I don't really play a lot of games except for chess, crossword puzzles and word games. There's good games for all of those. There are more games than I really care to get into. I can't really judge it because I'm not really into it.
The biggest issue is really Google services, which there isn't much of at all. It is kind of annoying, but I've been essentially moving away from Google services as a result and at least that part has worked fine. Skydrive is equivalent to (or actually kind of better due to MS Office integration) Google Drive. Bing search is not as good as Google, but the gap is probably smaller than you imagine. For essentially 90% of the things I search, both would give the same thing as the top result. Nokia's HERE maps are surprisingly just as good as Google maps honestly. Outlook.com (forwarded from gmail) has worked well so far. The set up was a little difficult at first but I finally got it working. The only thing I haven't been able to replace is Google Talk, which I relied on heavily on my androids and now I'm having to live without. =/. At least my new plan has unlimited texts, so I guess that isn't so bad. I wish Google would just be a bro and give us some WP apps. It's kind of turning me sour on them for the way they have sort of behaved towards WP.
This phone can be difficult to carry sometimes. The size is a negative in some respects. It fits well in some of my pockets and not well at all in others. I usually just go with carrying it in my underarm. I do have a case on it, the material feels a little slippery, or whatever the opposite of being able to have a good grip on it is. It really is such a sexy ass phone without the case on though. I might carry it around case-less sometimes just for that effect. It feels really nice in the hands and looks great, but I don't trust myself not to drop it.
Sometimes registers clicks when you are scrolling. I've heard this is a 1520 issue. Not a huge deal, but hope they fix it with some software update at some point. It can be annoying, but its fairly rare.
I have had my 1520 for about a month now and love it! It's is by far the best "Phone" I have used. I can hear people great and not once has anyone said to me "Do you have me on speaker phone?" No dropped calls (knock wood) and the phone is easy to use and looks great. I love the size because I can read a book on it when at the doctor's office or someplace waiting for a while. I really would recommend it to anyone not happy with their phone to give the Lumias a try. You don't have to get the 6" screen like I did but the Lumia line is a good one.
Things I don't like and why I did not give it a 5 star: Well, this is the bad part, you will have to find apps that will let you work with your Google accounts that you have (if you are coming over from Google). There are a lot more apps in the Windows Store then there was a while ago and it does seem to be growing. I have found an app that will let me work my Google Music, Google Drive, Instagram, Twitter, and even YouTube. You just have to do a little looking into the apps to find the right ones for you. Once you find them and install them you really won't know you are not on a Google phone. Now if you have a ton of games, books and stuff you bought in the Google Play store, you will have to get them again in the Windows store. In some cases, you may need to pay for them again. So that is the big bummer and the only reason this phone does not get a 5 star from me. However, I really do feel in a short time, this will all be worked out as from what I have been reading online, Windows is now making apps for Google users and the other way around.
In short (too late, I know), this a great "Phone" and it is also a good cell phone for doing other things like music, games and reading. Oh, and as I said it is a really great camera: 20 megapixels with all kinds of neat, customizable features and settings. I suck at taking pictures but this one makes it easy and fun. The dedicated camera button also helps a ton with taking pics.
Hope this helped and if you have any questions, I will try to answer them. Just remember I am new to the Windows phones. Oh, that is one more thing. Over the years I have asked questions on line about Google things and always got an answer but there has always been someone that would have to say something nasty about what I asked. I should already know that or it is a dumb question or something like that. I have gotten all the answers I have asked on line about this and other Windows phones and as of yet, not one nasty remark. So maybe the fans of Windows phone are just nicer or I have been really lucky. Point is, you don't have to worry when using a Windows phone, someone on line will be willing to help you out if you need it.
I have had the phone for a while longer and still like it a lot. I see that I made a mistake in my review and I am glad it was called to my attention. When I got the phone I was happy to see it DOES have room for an SD card for extra storage. I had thought there was no expandable storage thanks to the AT&T guy who first helped me, that stuck in my head. I am sorry for not remembering to clear that up in my review when I first posted it.
One more thing, I have found that a couple of the apps that helped me use my Google acct have stopped working and are not supported by Windows any longer, so that is a bummer. I like being able to get my Google goodies (books and such) when I need them so I have gotten a second phone. The Samsung Note Edge and love it in some ways even more than this phone, however the speaker on the Edge is not as good as the one on the 1520. I like this phone enough I am keeping it and still use it on a dally basis along with my Edge. I now have the best of both worlds.
