    I use it for Pandora, Xbox Music and Video, Netflix, HULU Plus, Plex...It is also a great Skype and Lync Client and IE is great. I use it as Tablet and Phone or one might say a Phablet :)

    All of the games play really well, my son steals mine to play HALO - Spartan Assault and Modern Combat...

    Some people like them...I don't use a screen protector personally. I've used the Incipio Feather Case on it and have a stands on my various desks. If you have one that has the Wireless Charging getting one of the Wireless Charging Docks is a good purchase. I would also add a 64 or 128GB Micro-SD Card...

    I love my Lumia 1520. It's a great device! I like Cortana a lot. I just wish she were out of beta.

    I just got a 1520 too!!! Gave up a brand new 830 for it (actually handed the 830 over to a very close family member). The 1520 I got is a Hong Kong variant (RM-937 or something like that). It was brand new too and I got it for a damn good price!!!! I simply love it!!

    I use it for Reddit, video, Skype. I have also begun reading a lot of my ebooks on it - and it is excellent for that purpose. Tomorrow I will be putting in a MicroSD card (probably a 64GB) for my music. But I am still toying with the idea for a case for it - but no screen protectors for me.

    One thing that really attracted me to the 1520 - well aside from the aesthetics and the screen size - is that the internals will probably hold good for WP10 and will be relevant till at least Q1 2016. In that sense, it was a worthwhile investment!!!!

    Do you still use the case? Can you suggest a good case - hopefully something that can be bought with the least of hassles here in the UK?

    I've used the Incipio Feather Case....I like it.

    I believe it should work with TapaTalk....I use the website so I'm not sure....
