Nokia Lumia 1520 – “The Beast” of the Windows Phone’s

Starting off, the Nokia Lumia 1520¬†features a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, featuring an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of on board memory and a 20 MP Pure View Camera with a dual flash. It is the first of “Lumia Family” to have a 6″ 1080p display. This is the first Windows Phone with with a Quad Core Processor and yet with the fastest one! I must say, this beast is one of the best phones in terms of specs.

Moving on, the phone’s design is pretty sleek. It has a plastic (or matte depending on the colour) uni body and feels quite rigid in your hands. The camera is bulged out (like the Nokia Lumia 925). This makes me feel insecure. What’d you think?

This phones runs on Windows Phone 8 with the “Lumia Black”. In terms of software, what’s different about this phone is its feature wherein you can have three sets of tiles. Pretty neat, eh? This would help you pin a ton of ’em to the home screen.¬†The phone is feels buttery smooth to use. If there would be any complaints on the working of the phone, then I’d say its the software. I have experienced some problems like the tiles not being responsive at times. Hey, Microsoft you gotta look into this! A few apps crash a lot of times (I know its the developer’s concern but these apps need to be improved). Also, the keyboard is very easy to get used to and the auto correct works fine enough.

The camera on this phone is impressive. A 20 MP camera on a smartphone is really amazing. The saturation is alright, the focus and the flash work well enough, but personally I think the image stabilization is not very “complete”. Low light imaging works perfectly well. In usual smartphone shot photos, the pixels are usually stuffed in to get maximum clarity. This decreases its capability to light up each pixel. But, in low light imaging each pixel is lit up and the required clarity is also maintained.


This is a high end phone and is definitely recommended for people who would love to capture their day-to-day instances, for people who would want a huge screen and for people who would text a lot (I am saying this because the type of keyboard on this phone is one of my favorite things on this phone).
