We've got people chipping in from Ireland, UK, Switzerland, and Reddit users answering questions with phone in hand...

pretty sure they're gonna announce it soon. an online store in my country is already taking pre-orders set to be shipped in tuesday for about 600 dollars. i know it ain't cheap, but i live in the philippines so prices are almost definitely high.

I'm starting to think the battery life is awful. Was it that hard to fit in a 3000mAh battery?

I think they have optimized the phone and os for low consumption....google might not be dumb enough to put it....plus it will bring down the price which is good=)

U kidding right? Besides being android 6 hours of video is pretty bad, pretty much my Z1 can do 10 hours of video so it is not trolling, mostly complaining on the battery which people were afraid in the first place, they should have added a 3000 mah no doubt and since battery is no replaceable getting a powercase to make.it live longer will make ur phone bulky

Firstly I am not your mate. You can call me GOD!!

Secondly don't even dare compare the AWESOME LUMIA 1520 to the Nexus 5 rubbish that dies out before 12pm and the pathetic yellow shade on the crappy camera.

Nexus is over!! in two months local councils will provide bins just for Nexus 5 to be put in.

Camera hump alert.

That's a platic cap protecting the camera. Once you take it off, you won't notice any hump.

Looks great, I must say :) but why did Google skimp on the battery??? 2300mAh is ridiculously small for a phone with a 5inch HD1080P display.
