WARNING : LONG AND LENGTHY REVIEW

I was looking for a phone for my family with large screen, which will serve the dual purpose of phone as well as tablet. So I zeroed in on Nokia Lumia 1320 and Samsung Galaxy Grand 2. My main reason for shortlisting these 2 brands was that their respective service centres are available within 3 Kms of my house.

Since I already owned a Lumia 730 and all my family members were familiar with the OS and UI, I finalised to buy the Lumia 1320. I was lucky to have got this phablet @ Rs. 13500 During the Amazon Republic Day sale. The cost of the phone in Poorvika / Univercell / The Mobile store is Rs. 17000 +.

I shall not narrate the specifications for this mobile, since the same can be found on any website.

Below are my comments based on 10 days of use;

Good 6 inch HD screen with good viewing angles. The display is crisp and the colours look natural. (I give 9 / 10)

The 5 MP rear Camera is good in day light conditions. However its JUST OK in the low light areas… ( I give 7 / 10). The front Camera is there only for name-sake.... please dont expect anything extra-ordinary (I give 5/10)

The Speakers are Loud. The quality is sufficiently OK ( I give 8 / 10)

Windows 8.1 Cyan with 1.7 Ghz Snapdragon processor … Navigation, multitasking, Touch etc work smooth as butter and no question whatsoever about lag ( I give 9 / 10)

Internal Memory is 8 GB. Out of which I got approx 4.1 GB Free. I have installed the very necessary apps only (I do not like much junk in my phone).

Angry birds, File Manager (There is No inbuilt File Manager… we had to download the app), Riptide GP (paid app), Subway Surfer, Talking Tom, Temple Run , Whatsapp, Google, You Tube, Weather, Ixigo Trains & Hotels, TOI, Word Web dicitionary, ABP News,

The aforesaid apps have consumed almost 800 mb of space and I am left with 3 GB of Internal Memory, Which is sufficient(for me)…( I give 9/10)

Spec-wise it claims to support 64 GB external Memory Cards…. About which I cannot say anything…. Since I loaded it with a 16 GB card and it is working smooth.

The RAM is 1 GB. Since windows OS uses RAM "wisely" ,all operations are smooth without any stutter of Lag. ( I Give 9/10).

Regarding the Built Quality…. The phone is made up of Plastic…. But it does not feel cheap…. Infact the phone has a premium look and solid built and the physical buttons are not creaky or loose. The back is very glossy and the finger prints are clearly visible.

The Non – Removable Batter capacity is 3400 Mah. The time taken to power it from 2-3% to 100% is almost 3 Hours. My Usage Patter is as follows; a. Telephone Calls of 2-3 Minutes duration: 8 – 10 calls per day b. Receiving / Reading SMS: 8 – 10 Messages c. Connected on WI-FI: 6 pm to 11 Pm d. Browsing the Net / Watching U-tube videos: 1 hour e. Playing Games: 2 Hours f. Listening to Music: 45 Minutes. With This Usage the Battery is lasting for 48 Hours.


This is quite good considering the 6 Inch HD Screen ( I Rate it 8 / 10)

GAMING : I have installed and played Subway Surfer, Temple Run, Angry Birds, Tom Cat, Dead Target -Zombie all are working fine without any lag or stutter whatsoever (I give 9/10)

Last. but not the least. The Call Quality is also very good. The voice is extremely clear to both the parties and there no disturbance of any kind (I Rate 9.5/10)

FINAL THOUGHTS

I AM 100% SATISFIED WITH THE PHONE AND WILL SURELY RECOMMEND IT TO ANY ONE WANTING TO PURCHASE IT…. GO FOR IT…..

Setings -> MOBILE + SIM -> Highest Connection Speed -> 4G

Note : Your Network Provider should Provide the 4G Connectivity or else you can struck up with 3G itself.

In India only certain places have 4G

I have successfully updated my system to newer o/s version but Phone Update is again asking for the same old updates. I have disabled Preview for Developers but still settings is showing all as pending updates. This is really weird as the most latest update shown in list is the one already running :).

It's always good practice to make sure you have plenty of free space on your internal drive/s to allow updates to do there thing as efficiently as possible. The OS needs it whilst its downloading, writing and installing updates. The good thing is it only needs that space temporarily whilst it updates so back up your files to another hard drive delete from phone then when your updates completed put the files back on your phone.
