I got this phone a couple of months ago and was sceptical at first due to the massive size but it is easily the best phone I've ever had and I will never be able to go back to a smaller phone ��

After installing developer preview you can still get the official update when it is rolled out(possibly at the end of may or beginning of June). Though this update is just for developers still anyone can update it though you void your warranty....
Source: "A preview update only includes the Microsoft portion of the update; mobile operator and OEM driver updates will be available when the official update for your phone is available." http://dev.windowsphone.com/en...p/devpreview

Another source : wpcentral.com
"What happens when 8.1 officially rolls out for your phone and carrier?

Basically, nothing. Nothing in the good sense. Your phone will get the same update, but unless the OS is different, the only thing that will be updated is your firmware. After the update, you’ll be on the same page as everyone else.

In other words, you risk not a thing by doing this."

I have bought this device and using it. its a 10 day old phone and i noticed that the front camera isnt working. I checked with the NOKIA care people and they are saying they will repair it.There are lot of people with the same problem. This is a Hardware defect. Phone reboots when front camera is launched. Also there are few other problems that my frnds have encountered. Please dont buy this device. I have spent 42k on this crap.

1) I must customize my phone as I like. (NOTE 3 overall, LUMIA 1520 Live Tiles)

2) Battery should survive one and half day with heavy Net browsing. (LUMIA 1520)

3) The phone should not get heated while downloading from Net or while charging. (EITHER)

4) I'm not a heavy gammer. (EITHER, though Android got more apps, just saying)

5) Camera clarity is very important! (LUMIA 1520)

Lumia 1520:
+ better camera
+ much smoother touch experience (lag-free)
+ better maps
+ longer battery life
- lack of apps (Windows)

Note 3:
+ more features
+ more apps (Android)
+ S Pen


It really depends on personal taste & function.

I am in same boat as you. I am also a proud owner of pureview 808 and is using it as primary phone since last 1 year.

However due to Symbian store getting closed and not updated, I am getting out of sync with apps now.

I have zeroed on Lumia 1520 as a successor to pureview 808.

However I will wait for another 2-3 weeks and let it's price settle down. Currently its appx price is Rs 38000-39000. Waiting for it to reach Rs 35000(650$) and in the meantime might get additional color choices of Green and Orange to choose from.

I am not a fan of android so for me personally it does not make sense to even give any suggestion of +ve of -ve about it. I am satisfied with 1520's camera, battery, offline navigation, Full HD big screen and some apps that windows store has to offer. So I kind of already sold on 1520 and it's matter of time to get it in my hands.
