Nokia Lumia 1520 (AT&T version) sold for only $49 on contract at Microsoft Store
Even an off-contract Lumia 1520 is cheaper at Microsoft Store: $549.00, instead of the $584.99 price asked by AT&T. You can check out Microsoft Store’s offer at the source link at the end of this article. The only (small) downside is that you won't find the white version of the 1520 at Microsoft, but you can buy the black, yellow, and red variants.
Initially launched in November, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is the largest Windows Phone 8 device ever, as it sports a 6-inch 1080p display. That aside, the 1520 packs many high-end features, including a 20MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and PureView technology. Our Nokia Lumia 1520 review includes plenty of other details about the handset.

This is a good thing about Microsoft Mobile -- the no contract price is more reasonable than Samsung or Apple. Still almost twice as much as a OnePlus One, though.

One plus one isn't available to the masses though.

Best phone, no regrets switching from note 3, remember this is my preference and windows 8.1 is sweet on mined

Agreed! Switched from original note but considering note 3. I loved Android, but wanted something new and am very happy with windows phone. Missing a few apps, but the 1520 is such an awesome phone. No regrets.

The 1520 is the best phone money can buy.. And, at $49 you'd have to be a complete idiot to not think so.... Nothing is better!

Yep 1520 is a great device, I'm definitely getting the 930. I sincerely hope that individuals who bash WP without truly using it takes the time to honestly use it with an open mind. They could very well be cheating themselves instead of treating themselves.

I wanted a 1520 but I need real Google services support before I go to WP.

You could be unnecessarily waiting for nothing especially when MS has all, and more of the same services that ate even better in most cases... Besides, if you got a WP device and didn't start using mostly MS services then you wouldn't be having the best possible experience... Besides YouTube forget Google.. It's not needed.

You pretty much already do as my google music plays in the web, I can view email etc, I mean what services do you use right now that there is not an alternative? Hangouts perhaps? Google docs? Why when you have office for free installed and linked in with skydrive.

Proper Google drive is the only reason my rm938 isn't my daily driver. It is an amazing phone. My s5 is no slouch but I prefer the wp8.1 ui now. Be selling my g2 and nexus 5 shortly.

I would wait until the next phone that has official 8.1. Don't use your 2 year agreement for the 1520. Try to buy it outright on eBay or something.

I thought 1520 had WP 8.1? Apparently not. I got burned once when I bought a new phone that got stuck at 7.5 then 8 came out so I wasted my money. Android phones seem to have a much better chance of getting the newer OS unless it is several years old.
