Re: Nokia Lumia 1520 and 2520 Tablet

Are you buying from AT&T? I would highly suggest that you buy from OmegaCell, unless there's a specific reason you want the AT&T version. I'm using the 32GB RM-937 version on Rogers with LTE, works perfectly. http://www.omegacell.com/products/nokia-lumia-1520-canada

Re: Nokia Lumia 1520 and 2520 Tablet

Yes there is a reaso n to get the AT&T version. Your omegacell version supports only 2600 (band 7) for LTE for Canadian networks. If you ever switch providers, you'll have no LTE. Also you'll have no access to the upcoming 700 (band 17). On the other hand, the AT&T version supports bands 4, 7 and 17, which is compatible with big 3 vendors, including 700.

Re: Nokia Lumia 1520 and 2520 Tablet

I own a Nokia Lumia RM-937 and Rogers is my service provider,,Let me tell you LTE is way over rated,,4G is most satisfactory for my data usage..I have tested both LTE and 4G on my handset and find very little difference RE - Uploading,, Downloading or even streaming videos or Netflix,,One thing for sure is LTE is a HUGE battery killer and if your device is always searching for LTE it drains the battery LARGE,,,Don't believe me ? Test it yourself on your current device

when you are receiving 4G on your rm-937 you still are getting that from the 2600 band, depending on which rom your 937 has it will show either 4G or LTE for that same band. so at the end of the day your 4G is still the LTE band.

So Just to clarify your comment, the AT&T rm-937 can access LTE and is more robust in terms of the accessable bands (4, 7, and 17) than the rm-938?

The RM-938 looks like it supports everything you require, why not go with that one? (plus it has Qi wireless charging as opposed to PMA). Seems like such a hassle to go have to have to go through AT&T just to buy a phone, then unlock it, where you can buy an already unlocked one here.

I have Speedtest app on my N5.  The max I can ever get from HSPA is around 4-5 Mbps - maybe 7-8 during best times.  On the other hand, LTE consistently gets mid-10's, and often reaching 20+.

Re: Nokia Lumia 1520 and 2520 Tablet

AT&T's model is not RM-937, it's 940.  937 is the Euro/International version, while 938 is Latin America.

 

Howevere, you'll need some luck finding the 938.  Many of the online sites advertise that they have 938 but either 1) the status is "out of stock", or 2) it's not actually the 938 but another revision.

Re: Nokia Lumia 1520 and 2520 Tablet

Hello micheal-r4

With 4G ( HSPA+) i get 20-30 but with LTE i get 50-100Mbps. Tested it on my Note 3, S5 ( Current phone) and my buddies G2. All in Scarborough - Toronto area. Sometimes with my S5 i get 120+Mbps.


LTE does drain battery but for people that want to use it and have a use for it, it's fine. My S5 and Note 3 go for 16 hrs on heavy use daily. So it all depends on how people use it.

Re: Nokia Lumia 1520 and 2520 Tablet

Hey Dos101,

 

How are things going with the Lumia 1520?

 

Happy with it?  Apps working well? Size an issue?

 

I am seriously thinking about it when visiting the US - it the size issue.  And of course that 930 interests me....

 

Anyhoo - any feedback is appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Mr. V
