Nokia Lumia 1520: The best Lumia yet needs very deep pockets

 

The Nokia Lumia 1520 marks an important milestone for Windows Phone 8 as it comes with many firsts for the platform. One of the biggest is Nokia's shift to a larger display and we feel they might have over done it a bit. There's also sibling rivalry...

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review

 

Phablets have been on the rise over the past few years as companies have been scrambling to catch the category Samsung essentially created when they released the Galaxy Note back in 2011. Since then, we've seen phablets from LG, HTC […]

Nokia may have sold its phone business to Microsoft, but it's not going out without a bang. Now available on AT&T, the Lumia 1520 is the most powerful Windows Phone we've ever used, and the first phablet to arrive for the platform. If you like...

Full HD screen ; Extra space for more Live Tiles ; Fast, powerful processor ; Great 20-megapixel camera ; MicroSD card support ; Great battery life

Size will be too large for many ; Stereo speakers would be nice ; Windows Phone may be a turn off

Nokia may be calling it quits, but this is its best phone yet. Though too large for some, it’s the most powerful Windows Phone we’ve tested and a great reason to consider the platform.

You're to blame for the vast Nokia Lumia 1520. “Make a phablet” we kept asking Nokia, “give us a big Windows Phone to compete with the Galaxy Note.” That Nokia – and Microsoft – went off to the drawing board and returned with a hand-dominating 6-inch...

For the moment, there’s no other Windows Phone that offers the same power and display resolution as the Lumia 1520. Give it some time, though, and other devices will catch up, leaving the key reason to opt for the 6-inch Nokia being its vast screen....

Nokia Lumia 1520 review: the best Windows Phone device yet

 

Windows Phone has never looked this good. The latest update to Microsoft's mobile operating system, known as Update 3, added support for 1080p displays,

Vibrant display ; Top-of-the-line hardware ; Great imaging experience ; Solid build quality

Can be uncomfortable to hold ; 6-inch display may be too big for some

The Lumia 1520 offers a Windows Phone experience unlike any we've seen before. With its top-notch hardware, fantastic imaging and constantly improving firmware, this is by far our favorite WP8 device.

Bigger isn't always better, but in Nokia's case, it is. The 6-inch Lumia 1520 for AT&T is the fastest Windows Phone ever made. Slimmer and lighter than you'd expect for a supersize handset, the 1520 brings home the goods: a huge 1080p HD display, a...

Nokia's Lumia 1520 delivers a large, glare-fighting screen, a fast processor, plenty of storage, and a strong 20-megapixel camera for the same on-contract price as a smaller premium phone.

Its size makes one-handed operation difficult, and call quality was muddier than on most Nokia phones. Limited voice dictation and voice assistance in the OS hobbles its usefulness as a phablet.

Though it lacks some features found in its big phone rivals, the Nokia Lumia 1520 is a great buy for Windows Phone fans seeking a supersize smartphone with premium hardware.

The mega-sized Nokia Lumia 1520 delivers a big 6-inch 1080p screen, excellent camera, fast CPU and very long battery life in an affordable, but large package.

Extremely long battery life; Large and crisp display; Excellent 20-MP camera; Zippy Snapdragon 800 processor; Affordable

Hard to hold with one hand; Limited app selection

As of this writing, the $99 Lumia 1520 is about $25 more expensive than the Galaxy Mega, but the small premium is more than worth it. For less than $100, you're getting a massive 6-inch 1080p display, a superb camera, LTE speeds, and more than 11 hours...

Nokia Lumia 1520 review

 

Three years ago, Nokia shipped over 110 million smartphones worldwide. None had a display larger than 3.5 inches. Today the company moves far fewer smartphones, every single one of them with a display bigger than its largest option in 2010.

Screen is beautiful ; Solid build quality ; Speedy performance

Windows Phone doesn’t take advantage of the big screen ; No HD content from Xbox Video ; Slow camera

Putting the "big" in Windows Phone

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is the largest Windows Phone to date, but should it be your next big purchase?

Extremely long battery life; Large and crisp display; Excellent 20-MP camera; Zippy Snapdragon 800 processor; Affordable

Hard to hold with one hand; Limited app selection

The mega-sized Nokia Lumia 1520 delivers a big 6-inch 1080p screen, excellent camera, fast CPU and very long battery life in an affordable, but large package.

Nokia Lumia 1520 hands-on: First look

 

The Nokia Lumia 1520 brings several firsts for the company. This is the Finns' debut in phablets, the first WP quad-core device and the first one to rock a FullHD screen.
