Finally Nokia has entered the “phablet” market with its new 6-inch screen phone, the Lumia 1520. It will compete against some of the well-known brands like Samsung Galaxy Mega and Sony Xperia Z-Ultra. With a 6-inch screen the Lumia 1520 is the biggest entrant into the WP8 operating system. The internal hardware and the price point place the phone into the class of high-end device.
The 1520 contains a 1080p screen which is raised slightly from the phone’s polycarbonate body. The phone consists of a lovely unibody casing. Like any other Windows Phone devices, the 1520 has camera shutter button, power and lock button, and the volume rocker along its side. The phone has outstanding build quality. The phone with its matte finish and casing feels great when held in the hand. The phone is manageable due to its brilliant build quality. At the bottom, you will find search, home, and standard back keys like any other Windows devices.
The 1520 comes equipped with a brilliant 20 MP pureview snapper which produces excellent shots in both the low light and bright situations. A disappointing area for the phone is the indoor shots. Some of the shots may have a lot of fuzz and noise while others may not have any issue. The 1520 consists of a 1.2 MP front camera which is pleasing enough to produce brilliant quality videos during Skype calls. The camera provides high quality features like zooming, auto focus, bright and vibrant colors.
The phone is extremely is responsive and fast in terms of navigation. The Lumia 1520 makes multitasking easy and resource hogging apps such as Asphalt 8 can be loaded in no time at all. There is no sign of lagging while jumping through various apps. Web browsing is another area which stands out. The Internet Explorer is the built-in browser which is devoid of some extensive features that are available in Opera, Chrome, and Firefox.
Lumia 1520 is a great device which is responsive and fast; has a brilliant build quality; houses the powerful camera and incorporates a large 6-inch screen. Therefore, this device is worth buying.
