Nokia Lumia 1520 White - Expert Reviews


Finally, Nokia launches its most awaited Nokia Lumia 1520 which is all set to lead the race for a significant period of time.

Phablets are the present trend in the market and this time, even Windows 8 phone has got a little bit bigger with its live tiles and the customised people hub. Such a big and clear on-screen view gives you a smooth and comfortable reading, surfing, watching videos or gaming time. For notifications, you can use either the vibration mode or MP3, WAV ringtones. When Nokia launches a screen like this, how can it lack in sound quality! The combination of the two gives you a feel of a personal, mini-home theatre right in your hands. You can enjoy your music either through the built-in loudspeakers or by plugging your earphones into its audio jack. Nokia Lumia 1520 offers a significant amount of RAM (2GB) and the latest processor (2.2GHz quad-core Krait) which work together to make gaming and multi tasking smooth and lag-free.

Talking of its internal storage, you have enough space of 32GB before you exhaust the limit. Moreover, unlike other high-end smartphones, Nokia Lumia 1520 is equipped with a microSD card slot so that should your internal storage gets all used up, you can expand the memory up to 64GB without any hassle. In addition to all these fantastic features, this mobile is also perfect when it comes to the camera and its specifications. If you are a dedicated shutterbug, you are surely going to love this smartphone. To enjoy your Nokia Lumia 1520 all day long, the company has gifted it with a very strong and powerful battery of 3400mAH, which further fetches brownie points for this smartphone. For detailed analysis of the device, the following sub-segments need to be visited.

Operating system and UI

Nokia Lumia 1520 is big, slim and light weighted. The dimensions of 6.41 x 3.36 x 0.34 inches and a weight of 209 grams clearly suggest that you can handle this phone all day long without feeling much burden. Moreover, it is so designed that it does not feel heavy even when you work on it for long continuous hours. This is the company’s first phablet with 6 inches of display and its IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen offers a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels along with a pixel density of nearly 368ppi (pixels per inch). The pixel density and the screen resolution blend in so well that it gives you a perfect and soothing on-screen view, no matter in what lightening conditions you are.

Some special features about its display are brightness control, orientation sensor, high brightness mode, refresh rate of 60Hz, Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2, easy to clean, Nokia Glance screen, Lumia color profile, wide viewing angle, sunlight readability enhancements, ClearBlack super sensitive touchscreen technology and support of 16M colors (TrueColors). The Corning Glass covers the front screen and provides good protection against scratches and pointed objects.         

These specifications allow you to have strain less reading, watching, surfing and gaming time. The basic user interface is kept pretty much the same with some added functionalities so that you feel more interactive while using your Lumia. You will find many tiles being accommodated on the start screen, each showing the latest alert or notification, so that just a glance is enough to keep you updated throughout the day.

Other Features

Overall, all these features work together to keep you updated with the latest news in your circle.


It’s 2GB RAM and Adreno 330 graphics processor aim to provide you with a smooth and a lag-free gaming and multitasking time. With this combination, you can easily go for high-end games and heavy applications. With in-house storage of 32GB, you can store a huge amount of files and data. In addition, it is also equipped with a microSD card slot, which is expandable up to 64GB, so that you can increase your storage capacity as and when needed. This expandable option is a missing feature in other competing high-end smartphones, and is one of the factors that give Nokia Lumia 1520 an edge over others. Along with all these, it also offers free SkyDrive cloud storage up to 7GB. Therefore, if we sum all these figures, the number is quite commodious and satisfying.

Moreover, the best thing about Windows market is that the applications are scam-free, unlike the Android market.


Running on Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.2GHz Krait processor, Nokia Lumia 1520 is powered by a standard lithium-ion non-removable battery of 3400mAh that keeps it alive for almost all day long. It strives to provide you with a standby time of up to 768 hours in both 2G and 3G. The talk time provided is up to 27 hours and 40 minutes in 2G and up to 25 hours in 3G. This battery can give you continuous music listening time for up to 124 hours and continuous videos for up to 10.8 hours. In addition, it also offers a maximum Wi-Fi network browsing time of 13.6 hours. All these statistics clearly prove that the company has maintained perfection at all the levels.


Nokia Lumia 1520 supports almost all the connectivity features including Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB port, NFC and GPRS plus EDGE. Not only it hosts Wi-Fi facility but also acts as Wi-Fi hotspot when needed thus allowing net access to other Wi-Fi enabled devices. With this smartphone, you can stay connected to your network globally and locally all the time.

Other Features

Nokia Lumia 1520 is just perfect and hence, there are many rivals to it. Infact, some of the rivals include its siblings as well.

Nokia Lumia 1520 beats any other Lumia model in terms of display size, as it is the first phablet by the company. Where Nokia Lumia 1020 and 920 are only dual core, Nokia Lumia 1520 is quad-core with the latest processor incorporated in it. In terms of battery, Nokia Lumia 1520 offers a whopping 3400mAh battery whereas HTC One offers only 2300mAh battery. Again, where the former set offers a massive 20MP primary camera, the latter one offers only a 4MP primary camera.

Even Apple iPhone 5S offers only 8MP of primary camera, which is almost nothing if compared to that of Nokia Lumia 1520. Not only this, where Nokia Lumia 1520 provides a talk time of 25 hours on an average, Apple iPhone 5S offers only 10 hours of talk time. Therefore, we clearly see that the competing models are not even a little close when compared to Nokia Lumia 1520 and the gap to be covered is just too much.

Is a device with a 6-inch display even a smartphone anymore? The Lumia 1520 is so comically large that doing ordinary smartphone things with it feels like you're making a joke. At its best, the 1520 is a funny party trick. At its worst, it's absurd. What Is It?A Windows Phone with a 6-inch display.

Nokia goes big, but OS stays 'small'

Bigger isn't always better, but in Nokia's case, it is. The 6-inch Lumia 1520 for ATT 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 20-megapixel camera, and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor -- the latter a first for Windows Phone.That high-res camera and outdoor legibility were bright spots. My red model's slippery finish, however, made it too easy to fumble. Some weak Read full Review

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, large smartphone screens and state-of-the-art processors. And now, these features are finally showing up on actual hardware. The first device to tick off all these boxes is the Nokia Lumia 1520, a 6-inch flagship with all of the trimmings we've been waiting to see on a Windows Phone device for three years now.Because high-end Windows Phones have Read full Review

Nokia Lumia 1520 review

Nokia has just taken a small step in the world of smartphones, but one giant leap for Windows Phone popularity. The Nokia Lumia 1520 is the first time a quad-core processor has sat inside a Nokia phone, here in the form of the Snapgragon 800 alongside 2GB of RAM.But elsewhere "giant leap" is a phrase that can be taken literally too: the 1520 pushes the Windows Phone 8 mould into phablet territory thanks to its 6-inch display. With a bigger and better screen than other Lumia devices of late, more Read full Review
