Very tempting. I used a 1020 with WP 8.1 ... very very fast.
And it's a lovely size. When I'm all growed up and get a real job...

Flagship phones are a mug's game these days, no? The Lumia 925, 920, HTC One, Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z/Z1/Compact are all available for peanuts now, yet their successors aren't THAT much of a step up.

Yep, but much to my chagrin the 1520 seems to be holding its price very well.

Franz,
Here in Ireland the Lumia 1520 has gone from €650 on prepay to €500 or so in 6 weeks.
I reckon 450 in a month...

Cheers, I'll keep a look out for that drop, but I'm wondering now about waiting longer for the compromise of the 930. I find the 1020 a bit lop sided and even though it's lighter than the 920, I've always thought the 920 is reassuringly heavy, rather than 'brick in your pocket' heavy.

I'm totally okay with the 1020 - performance wise it profited massively from Cyan.
But the fact that you can actually hear the tiny OIS motors always makes me a bit wary... I'm good at dropping phones :D
The 920 feels better than the 925 and 930. Agreed. But the 930 is acceptable in terms of 'feel', and the perfoormance is excellence. Though, oddly, the 1520 takes ever so slightly better pics imho. Especially in poor light. Not better by much, but better.
