Beware of the NewEgg Protection Plan


Size, Speed, Camera - I absolutely love this phone, and it's hard to be without it for so long while it's being repaired (for a cracked screen), via Newegg's Protection Plan

Newegg Protection Plan is horrible. I was without my phone for several weeks, due to the fact that the servicing company "didn't have the necessary part" to fix the phone, and they had to send it to the manufacturer for repair. In the meantime, if you...

Worth waiting for


Describing the operating system, I'll be honest, I bought this phone solely because Android is boring and all of it is exactly the same, whereas Microsoft is alienating their original userbase and flipping the bird while doing so. I love Microsoft's...

1. Yes, this phone is the "unicorn" it has wireless charging and 32 GB of memory, it is the Latin American version (you'll be prompted to select the correct language when the phone starts up first time). It can run on Tmobile ; 2. Yes this phone is...

No cons really. I haven't actually found the Microsoft apps lacking at all so no complaints, it's a happy move away from android. I guess if you hate big screens you're stupid for looking at this online, just go to a store and laugh for a moment and leave

Nokia Lumia 1520.3


This phone would be great if not for the bright spot issue. I have had two of these produce this problem. I have to assume it is the phone itself, as I have treated the second one like it was made of the finest crystal.

Great screen size and resolution, and the Windows OS 8.1 is very smooth

Two of these phones have had the bright spot phenomenon. There is something wrong with these LCDs. Some people think it is the vibrator motor, others think it may be pressure sensitivity. This is a very real issue on the support boards

I may have gotten the last one-could not be happier


Purchased this last week with standard shipping and it arrived a day before it was supposed to and very well wrapped! Also got it on here when they had the promotion and it came out to 494.

I literally just got this yesterday but having used Windows Phone for a few years now I knew my way around the device. I upgraded from a L925 and wow this thing is huge. After picking up my L925 to make sure I was moving over the right things, it felt...

Can no longer text with one hand...haha

This is a phone review


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...

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...

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...

Kneecapped by bad firmware


This really is a nice phone hardware-wise, but the software really destroys it. Cortana and Windows Phone 8.1 would be awesome ecosystem-wise, but glaring issues like the phone becoming periodically unresponsive just ruin the entire experience. I've...

Hardware is gorgeous ; Camera is excellent ; Build quality is outstanding, phone feels solid

Bad firmware burns through the battery crazy fast ; Phone will lock up and become unusable for minutes at a time

Awesome phone (BUT I would not recommend upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1 beta)


- I would not recommend installing Windows Phone 8.1 beta. The first 2 months i got this phone i was doing fine i with WP8 but then i joined the developer community and installed WP8.1 on it. It is kinda buggy somehow. For example, more than half the...

Super awesome phone ; Camera is awesome

none for the phone so far, but some for Windows Phone 8.1

Awsome phone


The best Nokia phone made.

This phone is unlocked and works flawless on AT&T. LTE speeds using 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

The only con I have is that with polarized sunglasses on and viewing in landscape the screen turns a little bluish, but not bad

T-Mobile LTE


Hard to believe Microsoft is playing catch up, but glad they partnered with Nokia. All that's needed is time for better apps.

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 Recognized Sandisk Ultra...

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...
