The Boss of Windows smartphones has arrived!
Display and Configuration
The Nokia Lumia 1520 comes with a huge 6 inches LCD display with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution that is sure to make viewing HD videos a memorable experience. The device runs on the latest Windows Phone 8 OS Update 3. The configuration is equally stunning, comprising of the highly-appreciated 2.2 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 800 chipset and a good 2GB of RAM.
Camera and Storage
Inspite of its great configuration, the real show-stealer is the camera. The rear camera is a mind-boggling 20 MP with Carl Zeiss optics and OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) . The front camera, at 1.2 MP will be useful for video calling. Nokia has provided the device with perhaps the highest expected internal storage Ã¢ÂÂ 32GB, which means one can store all of one's full HD videos, HQ photos and documents without breaking a sweat. Add to it the fact that this storage is expandable using external microSD card, and you get a smartphone that's a veritable storage heaven.
Connectivity and Battery
Nokia's latest Lumia handset breaks a number of records, including those of display, processing power, internal storage and battery. This device brings the best of everything. The device otherwise is the dream phone for anyone seeking a Windows smartphone that gets best scores in almost every specs category.
Overall User Rating (4.5 Out of 5 based on 416 ratings)
Overall: I changed a Lumia 920 for this, so the interface was really familiar. As to the phone, I can't say enough about how good it is. Build quality feels dense (like much more solidly built than the 920, which though sturdy felt as if it was hollow. This feels like there's not a millimetre of space inside).nnThe phone, in reviews and photographs, does not look so big. In hand, it's huge and feels more like a tablet and less like a phone. For me that was a plus, as it's a secondary device which I use for media consumption. For others, maybe half an inch smaller and it'd be perfect. Having said that, I have no complaints.nnProcessor is zippy, calls are clear, memory is huge, camera is better than the competition, screen's great and battery has to be experienced to be believed. Did I leave anything out?nnOK, the fanboyism done with, here's the negative aspect. I woke up and found the screen with a hair line crack in it. This was my two day old phone. It was not a result of physical damage, as those cracks would smash/ spider the screen. This was a fine straight crack. In my opinion, this was just poor QC on the part of Nokia. If the glass has micro fractures in it during manufacturing, it can lead to spontaneous cracks over time. This was the first time it ever happened to me, and on searching the web, I found similar complaints, especially with Samsung devices. I hope Nokia is not heading down the Samsung road.nnThat done with, Props to Flipkart for a no hassle, speedy return and refund. And for that, even though the phone failed. it was a great experience, and has made me more appreciative of Flipkart. The phone and the merchant's behaviour. I'll definitely get another 1520 and hope it was a one off freak incident.
