I think I've decided on what phone to get, after looking at loads of specs, prices and the fact I'm too impatient to wait for next month :snicker I'm going to go for the Nokia Lumia 1520, here's what persuaded me:



thanks for all the suggestions fellas, helped me out a lot :)

Windows apps are lame, even today you are selling yourself short not going Android.
Plus that standby number is BS, my Xperia SP is rated at 732hours with 20hours talk time on a 2300mah battery.
I still have to charge it every 3 days.

the only apps i use are facebook, twitter, instagram, tapatalk and spotify which are all available on the windows store, anything else that i might be missing out on are available on my tablet anyway.

I haven't no, some of it is taking some getting used to haha, i was surprised at how big it was as well. I knew it had a 6 inch screen but when you see it and hold it in your hand it's another story.

I got the xperia z1 2 months ago and it's far better then the iPhone os runs smoother and everything is quick. I could have waited for the z2 but they don't have the same colors the z1 comes in. I would highly recommend the z1 if your looking for style and performance.

I'm hoping Apple comes out with a larger iPhone in the next year. I like the larger screens Android offers, but I'm just not a fan of the UI.

Lol, I'm the opposite. I'm actually perfectly happy with the screen size of my 5. Androids feel too big for something I want in my pocket.


I've had ab iPhone of each irritation (iPhone, 3G, 4 and currently a 5) since they've been about but I'm not 100% if I'll stick with them later this year. Depends what they have up their sleeve


BBK.. Tapa. Talked.

I'm not sure if they will do big screen phones, a lot of their products seem to focus on being compact and small/thin, that's what I think anyway from watching tech reviews on youtube and stuff!

I upgraded from an S4 to an HTC one m8. Best phone I've ever had. Smooth operating system. Makes the s4 look like a kids toy. Mine used to freeze a lot or restart itself. I've had the m8 for about 4months and no problem with it at all. I love the way it looks too.
