Nokia Lumia 1520

 

The best Windows Phone yet

Bright and very sensitive screen, Very good picture quality and RAW support, Super fast and easy to use, Has every conceivable feature possible

Heavy and cumbersome to use, Camera is slow, Panorama mode is rubbish

Nokia Lumia 1520

 

The best Windows Phone on the market, but there are still a few quirks

Great screen ; Beautiful OS ; Superb camera ; Good video performance

Windows Phone still lacks apps ; File compatibility ; Music repro could be stronger

While there’s no denying the Lumia 1520 has its flaws, if you’ve ever been curious about Windows Phone this could well be the handset that finally pushes you to make the jump.

Nokia Lumia 1520 review

 

The biggest Windows Phone on the block has a stunning 6in screen and city-levelling processing power. But it's what it does with them that really counts [updated with video]

Massive, bright and clear display ; Impressive camera with fantastic low-light performance ; Bristling with power ; Top-notch build quality

Apps. Or rather, the lack of them ; No special treats to make the most of the big screen ; Camera can be slow to shoot

An outstanding piece of phablet hardware with a phenomenal screen, sorely hampered by Windows Phone's lack of apps

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...

Excellent build, fantastic camera and options, beautiful screen, good battery life, Glance screen, Black OS will bring plenty more with it - including raw file capture from camera

Switching connections on and off is a pain, might be too big for some, could be missing a few apps you want

The Nokia Lumia 1520 has to be the best Windows Phone 8 handset on the market. It's certainly the best Lumia we've used to date. That's not just thanks to the reassuringly high quality build, but also thanks to the new Black OS.

Hands-on: Nokia Lumia 1520 review - Pocket-lint

 

Nokia has at last taken the wraps off its Lumia 1520 smartphone, previously known as the Bandit. It's the biggest handset Nokia has ever made, with the

Nokia Lumia 1520 review

 

Nokia goes big on specs, but can Windows Phone 8 keep up?

Great 1080p display ; Fine camera ; Solid build quality ; Surprisingly slim

Arguably too big ; WP8 feels unoptimised ; Lack of apps ; Lack of video store

This phone is more power than precision, and it's a mammoth beast - but with a scaled up core and more icons, we do like the direction its poking Windows Phone into.

Video: Nokia Lumia 1520 review - Windows phablet has top build quality, great camera and good looking screen

 

We thought the Galaxy Note 3 was a big phone but the Lumia 1520 eclipses it. The device isn't overly thick but it's difficult to hold and use because of how wide and tall it is. The size is the main draw back and the interface being scaled means the...

Nokia Lumia 1520 review

 

If you're in denial about 'phablets' then take a look at the Lumia 1520. With a 6in screen the handset has one inch on most flagship smartphone and is only the same amount smaller than tablets like the Nexus 7 and Tesco Hudl.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 has got so many things right including build quality, a great camera and a good looking screen. It's the best Windows Phone yet but software is still lacking and we just wish the darn thing was smaller because it's severely off...
