Nokia Lumia 1520 to sport 3400mAh cell, will launch in November on AT&T
We do have some new details concerning the battery. A 3400mAh cell will be keeping the lights on. With a 6 inch FHD screen, you need to make sure that those little gerbils are spinning on that wheel as fast as possible, for as long as possible. The rumored 3400mAh battery capacity will top what Samsung has put into the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (3200mAh)
According to the latest water cooler gossip, the Nokia Lumia 1520 will be introduced on September 26th with the actual launch taking place in November, just in time for holiday buyers to whip out their credit cards. AT&T is expected to have first crack at the device.

Here is external battery charger for Lumia 1520?? Check out this item I found on eBay:http://pages.ebay.com/link/?na

It just looks like a general mini USB charger to me. They just heard about the Lumia 1520 releasing and so by going off of previous Lumia specifications they were able to justify it as a Lumia 1520 charger. However, if the Lumia 1520 brought some new kind of charging input (sort of like Apple's lightning port) then I would reason to say that product would be taken down.

Yea your right, indeed its just miniUSB

Sounds good so far. Although just to point out while it does top the Note 3, the Note 3 also has a smaller screen. So, it may even out in battery life figures. However, that's still a great thing because the Note 3 lasts a long time on it's battery.
I just hope there's something that will really "WOW!" me. I don't want it just to be some enlarged Lumia handset. I want something new to go with it. Keeping my fingers crossed that I'm not disappointed.

Battery life for Windows Phone 8 is generally quite good, so I would expect it to probably exceed that of the Note 3. I usually go about a day and a half between charges on my Lumia 928 (with its 2000 mAh) battery, so I'd expect up to maybe 2.25 for this one.

Agreed... I recently added a Lumia 928 to my smartphone arsenal and have been pleasantly surprised at the battery life of the device.
It easily exceeds both my iPhone 5 and Note 2, especially as it consumes almost no power while in stand-by mode.
Whatever Nokia/Microsoft is doing as far as OS + Device optimizations, They're Doing it Right!
I've long given up on AT&T but if/when the 1520 makes it to Verizon, I'll definitely be getting one - Windows Phone 8.x + Lumia Is Very Impressive.

Nice. Depending on how recently you got your 928, battery life might actually improve. If you allow a few weeks of good charge cycles (charge to 100%, let it drain to 20%-ish), the device will continue calibrating and getting better with battery life. I started out at a day, then eventually the average came up to 1.5 (and even 2 for some days when I wasn't using the device all that much).
They're definitely doing some things right with the OS. I think they've put a lot of effort and emphasis into laying the groundwork for a highly optimized and expandable operating system, but they've consequently been somewhat frustratingly behind in current features and tricks. Either way, I think the potential is high -- I just hope they capitalize on it.

now that depends on snapdragon 800,if it optimize well with 1520...also clear black display saves so much energy...nokia will be in win win situation....the point they realize even small improvements matter

920 doesn't survive half a day on average usage...so with this battery size it should at least survive one day..system is power hungry

I hope thats not an actual picture of the device cause that bezel is too thick my liking.

Windows phone is selling better than iOS in another emerging market (Middle East).

2. BB (because of old BB7 devices. BB10 not selling well).
3. WP because of Lumia's.

After seeing many powerful phones like Lumia 1020, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony Xperia Z1, is it still worth & reasonable to buy an iPhone?
20. CX3NT3_713 (Posts: 2060; Member since: 18 Apr 2011)
You mean please? , and geez bro, how many apps do you actually used a day? I only use about 6....

I read on wpcentral that this thing is very thin and heavy. I like that combo actually.

Nice battery. A shame it's a Windows phone.
31. Ronny666 (Posts: 108; Member since: 08 Jun 2013)
6 inch and 3400mah is good but can they make it slim and ergonomic? I doubt so. Why? Because they haven't proven it from their previous lumia models. Great contender though.
42. tallpaulyall (Posts: 1; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
Why are they wasting their time with this great phone on a crap carrier like AT&T???
