Say hello to the Nokia Lumia 1520, a small step for Windows Phone, a giant step for Nokia, with its quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.
Let’s start this review with the key features of the Nokia Lumia phone…
Key Features and Specs for the Nokia Lumia 1520
- Quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor
- 6-inch display
- 4G LTE
- 2GB RAM
- Wireless charging
- Windows Phone 8.1
As you can see above, the Lumia has a 6-inch display – and that’s pretty big. Plus, being 8.7MM thick, the phone is quite beefy. But I like a beefy phone, it has a nice feel to it. And with its matt finish, the phone feels great in the hand. The buttons feel nice to push, and look good on the phone.
The Lumia has a full HD 1920×1080 display, which is just amazingly clear. The screen is a panel IPS display. May I also mention that this is the first full HD screen to be in a Nokia smart phone! The screen also has Nokia ClearBlack, a technology which reduces reflections on the screen. It works amazingly well.
Coming with the screen, obviously, is the OS. The OS in question is Windows Phone 18.104.22.16817.150 (a bit of a tongue twister). It’s unlikely that you’ll have this on your Nokia Lumia in 2014, but it’s good to know how good it works.
This phone might sound great, but nothing is without its downfalls… and the Nokia Lumia 1520 is no exception. For example, the BBC iPlayer app doesn’t work yet, and content downloading doesn’t really work quite well. These issues might sound like really little things, but trust me, this can be annoying issues. The size of the phone isn’t that good when calling, it feels a tiny bit weird.
In conclusion, the Lumia 1520 is a great phone, and is out there to get the iPhone (maybe)!
