Some info on the GDR3 update that is coming later this year (you can also legitly download it and try it out, though it voids your warranty).

http://www.wpcentral.com/hands-video-tour-windows-phone-8-update-3

Finally upgraded from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8 and a Lumia 920. I'm absolutely loving this phone. It's beautiful, elegant, snappy, has a good amount of memory, and as I've already inadvertently proved twice, virtually indestructible! And Windows 8 platform works MUCH better on here than a desktop!
Congrats! I love my Lumia 920 as well. Had to use a Galaxy Nexus or a couple weeks while I sent it in for repairs. Worst two weeks of my life lol, I really missed my Lumia.

Succumbed and got a Lumia 1520. Pretty big but still usable. The phone looks absolutely stunning! The second pic below shows the size difference to my Lumia 920.

Nice dude! was pondering whether to buy a 1520 myself aswell, but the lack of a stylus turned me away.

Also thanks for the pic! don't think many people realise exactly how big that 1520 is :p

Haha! Ya initially the idea of such a large phone lacking decent stylus support put me off, but after using it for a while it actually is still very usable. It solves two of my main problems:

1) MicroSD support, so I can use this as my main MP3 player as well as a phone.
2) Larger screen, allowing me to see more on the Start screen without having to scroll.

Yes it definitely is large, but I have larger hands so it still feels comfortably to use. Definitely wouldn't recommend a phone this size for people with smaller hands, that's for sure.

Nothing wrong with that, I was using a 520 for a while. Very solid phone for the price!
I just use mine to make calls and check my mail once in a while......and random dirty texts to the wife. I'm not a hardcore phone lover like some people. Guess even though I'm only 35 I think its not really in my generation for the 100+ text a day with my nose buried in apps.

I'm not judging anyone for that mind you. I'm just saying in general I think my generation missed that boat. Its a millennial thing. Not generation X.

Just got my son a 520. Amazing phone for the price, runs at least as smooth as a high-end android and, since it's the first contact with WP8 i must confess it seems to me it's a damn good OS. I got the impression it's better suited to a phone than android which I happily use on a nexus 7 tablet.

I'm sort of in between (I'm 25 btw). I use quite a few apps (mostly various services, no games), but I don't do a lot of texting, and I'm not constantly on my phone. 99% of my texting is with my gf, the other 1% is friends and family. At most I'll send maybe 50 texts a day, but even that's rare for me. What's nice about Windows Phone is that if all you do with your phone is call, check email, and occasionally browse the internet, you can fill the Start screen with just those icons, using the different tile sizes to take up most of the space, as opposed to Android and IOS where you would just have 3 or 4 icons and a bunch of unused space.

I was actually quite surprised how well Windows Phone 8 scales, especially on lower-end hardware. As you noted it feels very smooth, and I never encountered any lag within the UI (can't say the same for a buddy's Note 2!). I don't think I could ever go back to Android or IOS, I hate the rows of icons you're forced to have.

Seriously once you start using a Windows Phone going back to IOS and Android feel like garbage. I used to LOVE Android before I got my 521. Now I can't stand them.

I think the 520 and 521 are the same phone. Just different regions for some reason call it a 521 over a 520.

I think the 520 and 521 are the same phone. Just different regions for some reason call it a 521 over a 520.
The 521 is the T-Mobile variant of the 520, and is also about 4mm longer.

Let's cut the crap. I'm fifty and I love to play with new tech (that is if I can afford it...) The 520 came into our family after my son's unlocked Galaxy SII, serving him well for the past almost two years, took a nosedive and, during a couple of weeks, the screen slowly turned to black after some weird coloring. Since it was time to renew our contracts with the mobile network company I took 2 phones, one junk android and this Lumia. I didn't had any smart phone, did't care, was using a Nokia. He jumped on the WP and he loves it leaving behind the Samsung galaxies. I use the other crap until I'll decide for a better phone. Now I'm sure it will be a Windows phone.

So I am going to get a nokia 928. The 929 looks great but isn't out yet and I doubt it will be free on contract like the 928 is. Any first tips for windows phone? I am coming from the antiquated palm pre 2.

Well, it's good training for W8 if you don't have it yet! It's basically a start screen. It's actually fairly intuitive and easy to figure out, and very smooth operating. Even the windows Phone 7 interface (which was a preview of W8 OS) was smooth. I think you'll like it...I love my Windows phone 8!
