Have had this for a year, it's been pretty good and it is much better than my last android phone for power consumption.

Having said that there are a couple issues that should be mentioned.

The first is that the autocorrect feature is too overzealous. Autocorrect will replace correctly spelled words with others it wants to use instead, which is annoying. In don't mind autocorrect but that's ridiculous. It also has difficulty correcting simple one letter mistakes for some reason but is fine replacing whole words...come on people.

Second, is to be aware that if you turn off wireless but are too quick to dispose of the window in settings where you do this that it will in fact remain enabled. I have caught it several times failing to disable wireless when told to do so simply because I closed the window before it was completed. It doesn't tell you anywhere to wait for it to complete before closing the window.

Other gripes: zoom function not available in mms photo mode. Using desktop mode in browser still results in websites redirecting to mobile versions, which are worthless sites IMO.

I will be happy when Windows 10 comes out for this device.

Otherwise it's been a pretty good phone for me.

India seems to be the second largest users of WP only next to USA. It is disappointing to see that the denim (or for that matter any update) update release comes in so very late. Its released in Thailand and Philippines were the users are just about 10% of the ones in India. The delay is release only reflects on the poor showmanship of WP.
Look at android and apple on other hand. Updates are quick and in sync with entire world. You buy the most expensive Lumia 1520 phone and you have models with 10k ready with updates about 3 months now.

Are we justified in supporting and being loyal users in India?

Does 1520 has any issues with properly displaying certain websites? Issues like:

-Pic overlaying the text or vice verse?
-Page shaking or blinking too much?
-Not displaying all items on the page or displaying them in improper order?
-Some sites crush (shut down and the browser opens a blank page)

I'm asking because even my Lumia 920 does have these issue with few websites. The pages don't feeez up like
it used to be on Lumia 520, but many other problems still exist. Crushing occurred on both 520 and 920 after updating to 8.1

But after upgrading to Denim everything works perfectly Ok.

Hi all.
Need help and opinion
When I play music on the "my music " app, it plays about 4 to 5 songs and then just stops playing. Attempting to play next track doesn't help. Exiting the app and reopening still doesn't help. Its as though the app is hung.
I have to switch off the phone and put is back on for the app to function again. And the again I plays about 5 songs and stops responding.

Please any suggestions
