For the aboriginal time aback its launch, Windows Buzz 8's accouterments abutment has bent up with the iPhone 5S and top Android phones like the Nexus 5. The Lumia 1520's abounding HD screen, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM are absolutely what we've appear to apprehend from flagship phones. The 1520 is aswell the better Windows Buzz by a austere allowance acknowledgment to its huge 6-inch screen, but should anyone added than the a lot of agog Windows Buzz fan accede affairs one?

Nokia Lumia 1520: Architecture and Features

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is huge, that abundant is obvious, but the 1520's architecture is cut from the aforementioned bolt as all the added Nokia Lumia phones. It's fabricated from a individual area of sturdy, top above artificial with the awning bulging anytime so hardly outwards from it. It's a acceptable attending and one we're not apathetic with yet.

It's harder to escape the size, though. It's not blubbery (8.7mm), but it is awfully tall, advanced and absolutely heavy. It's a abounding centimetre taller than the already ample Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (162.8mm vs 151.2mm) and bisected a centimetre wider, but it's aswell 42 grams heavier. Its backpack is harder to ignore, admitting it's as abundant a action of the Lumia 1520's above body above as the size.

Needless to say, then, that this is a 'two hands' phone. You can use the Lumia 1520 in one duke for periods, but accordingly something will crave you to accompany the added one into play. This is just the absoluteness of owning a buzz this size, as is the actuality it's a bound fit in a lot of trouser pockets. Absoluteness or not, we accept the hardly tighter ambit of the Note 3.

For concrete controls it includes a committed camera bang button alongside the accepted aggregate and lock/power buttons. They're fine, admitting it's a little too simple to jog the aggregate ascendancy if you put the buzz aback in your abridged and they aren't the easiest to locate by feel alone.

Besides the top-end processor and camera, which we'll get into a little later, Nokia has absolutely befuddled the kitchen bore at the Lumia 1520. There's 32GB of congenital memory, but there's aswell an up to 64GB microSD agenda slot. Every wireless accepted we can anticipate of is included, too. There's 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC, not to acknowledgment 4G LTE. Did we acknowledgment the 1520 supports wireless charging? We didn't? It does that, too, admitting with a alternative dock.

Nokia Lumia 1520: Awning Quality

You don't charge us to acquaint you that the awning on a buzz is important, and acutely Nokia doesn't either. The Lumia 1520's awning is a triumph. The IPS-based LCD awning is sharp, rich, colourful, responsive, bright... and some added acceptable things we can't absolutely anamnesis appropriate now.

A 1920 x 1080 resolution on a 6-inch awning equates to 367 pixels per inch (ppi), which is affluence aciculate abundant to ensure text, videos and photos attending bland and abundant in all the appropriate places. And while the admeasurement makes the Lumia 1520 a bulky buzz to use, it's absurd for games, videos and web browsing.

It is, as is generally acicular out, added like a book than a phone. This aswell makes the Lumia 1520 accomplished for alive with and examination Microsoft Office documents, decidedly ones with cartoon and archive that will not fit on abate phones.

Like a lot of Nokia phones, the Lumia 1520 aswell works if cutting gloves -- a accurate ambush the brand of Apple accept yet to adopt. This is a nice-to-have rather than a accept to have, but it aswell has the blessed ancillary aftereffect of authoritative the Lumia 1520's awning abundantly acute and acknowledging after gloves.

The atramentous akin and adverse isn't absolutely as abysmal and bright as the best AMOLED displays, but the Lumia 1520 is still actual acceptable on both counts. It's accomplished if beheld outdoors, too. This is a big advice if lining up shots with the camera, about area the admeasurement aswell helps a abundant deal.

All told, it's absolutely harder to acquisition accountability with the screen. It's by far and abroad the highlight of the phone.
