Will make the Lumia 1520 even better. I like the 4K recording feature where you can extract photos from it still at HQ.




Do whatever you want to do man.

freitasm: 4K video on a 16GB/32GB device...

"4th Quarter". One day they will say "this is available now" when introducing new features.




Most WP8 and beyond Lumia's have a micro SD card slot so can go up to 128GB on top of internal storage. For me my primary use of that 4K feature would be to shoot kids who constantly move around. I will be able to extract a image of my liking out of that video.

chada398: too early for news on NZ release of lumia 730/830?


I will be surprised if any of the NZ carriers get 730 or 735 as both are dual SIM models. Lumia 830 I think has the best chance of making it to NZ carrier.

indeed too early to say anything, if the carriers choose to bring these devices in to NZ, they will announce them when they wish to

Sorry we can't be more specific than this currently.

735 is single sim LTE with wireless charging built in. Really hope some carriers bring them over here.

Or at the very least Microsoft selling directly to the public via an online store like what Apple does with their iPhone.

You can already buy phones online from MobiCity, Expansys and so on. You prefer to buy from MS Store .com though?

The problem is that they're carrier branded most of the time - they're crippled in some way rather than it being phone with a bog standard installation of Windows Phone without any tweaks or butchering. With that being said, the choices are slim - HTC One M8 for Windows Phone is non-existent, Microsoft has pretty much given up the high end with the leaving 1020/1520 to die on the vine and that doesn't explain the depressing state of XBox Music. I really want an alternative to my addiction to iOS but Microsoft is making it as difficult as possible.

HTC One M8 for Windows, they haven't announced an international version with the right freqs

I've bought a few phones from mobicity over the last year, they've all been country variants not a carrier branded model.  really the only tweaks/butchering carrier do is possibly preinstall some apps that can be uninstalled.  Its not like Android
