My new Nokia Lumia 1520 is going to have better specs than this.. How is this innovative❔... Looks like Windows Phone can't be called the devices with 2 year old specs anymore, and the 1520 is the first device to actually surpass a Android device in terms of raw specs, and innovation.. My Lumia 920 has more innovation than this Nexus..
I'm sticking with Windows Phone....

The 1520 doesn't exist and you're already saying it surpasses an android device? You're retarded

No nexus phone ever had top of the line specs. Why are you so disappointed this doesn't either? All this for 300$ off contract is a great deal. Stop crying

stfu, Windows Phone OS is a piece of crap, the 1520 doesn't even EXIST, and the 920's specs aren't close to the Nexus 5's. WTF do you mean "innovation", Nokia never "innovates", they have 2 periods, old, tough, crap phones, and then (still crappy) windows smartphones, which (the smartphones) are ALL THE SAME. Windows phone can't (and wont) ever pass Android. Take a look at what you post before you post it.

That's not quite true, Nokia have their camera but not much else. I had Window phone before I start using Android. Live tiles is just gimmick after a while you hardly ever use it....much. Nokia map is nice but Google map destroy it.

Wait, what?

First of all, neither devices are even out yet. Second, even if we go based on specs, they are identical (Snapdragon 800, 1080p display, 2 GB RAM), except the 1520 has a larger display. Third, how the hell is the 1520 innovative? Nothing is different from other Lumia models except the specs and the display. Lastly, your Lumia 920 runs a OS in it's infancy and has such outdated specs comparatively that it shouldn't even be compared to the Nexus 5. The ONLY things good about Lumia devices that is specific to them are their camera and build quality, everything else is mediocre.

Nokia should of ditched Microsoft a long time ago and just made windows phones. Now there is no chance and Microsoft will kill Nokia off with a series of bad devices.

If it's as fast as the Nexus 4 , loads more features, then I will be getting it, hopefully, before the month is out.

Lol, since when is a quadcore 2.2Ghz better than a 2.3?
Also, since the first lumia, thendesign hasn't changed AT ALL.
Also, the Nexus costs less than $300 while the lumia costs over $700.
So I don't think you know what you're talking about.

Even being a Nexus it'll sell more than the carrier exclusive, WP 1520.

true your correct in regards to the Nokia Lumia 1520 but it took em a while to catch up. The 1520 is the first windows whone since HTC HD2 to not suck ballz or catch my attention. They should have put that 41 MP cam in the 1520 instead damn shame owell.

yeah no doubt the Lumia 1520 will have a great spec as the nexus 5. But I'll ask you "WHAT FOR?" Quad core snapdragon 2.3 GHz with Adreno 330 only for playing Temple Run or other classy games?

Windows phone live tiles are gimmick?? I agree with windows phone still needs to improve. But you're just a fan boy. Every os has its pros and cons. You don't have to bash any os.

Exactly Google wants to build a phone for consumers to afford WITH A PURE GOOGLE EXPERIENCE W/KITKAT on board.

Well, you got to admit, under $300 is very cheap for a phone this good, and we might not need it YET, but most people just want to be on the top of AnTuTu.

When there was a leak in the playstore, the 16gb model would cost around $269.
