Akk2382, 30 Dec 2013Only one issue: Sunlight legibilty test does not seem to give results comparable to real-life ... moreI find this comparison a bit biased. if what you say is true, that the 1520 screen sunlight legibility is actually better in real life than the note 3, then GSMA team oughtta give a clarification. Can an the way overplayed samsung design look better than this Nokia because of the stitching? My honest opinion, never. The Samsung look was good but is now very boring. Just take a look at the images of the backs (cameras) of these two devices.
Under the video comparisons comparing the zoomed images, I couldn't help noticing that Note 3 is at x2 and 1520 is at x3! The 1520 image then looks more blurry in a side by side (!) comparison yet they are at different zooms!
Finally, I use android and will not change to WP or iOS any time soon though I must admit some interesting things are beginning to happen at Nokia.

Anonymous, 03 Jan 2014They cannot digest defeat i guess. Even though they got one 1520 they WILL resell/exchange it ... moreDefeat... What defeat...?! that's your fanboyistic inference... The article itself is pretty balanced and highlights good design efforts by either phablets...if u want to see defeats or wins ...go for the championship article of gsmarena...where fans war out for wins and defeats!

organshifter, 01 Jan 2014Third generation? Yes. First to market with a "true" phablet which was worth it? Yes... moreYou've missed the point here dude, if the first generation of nokia phablet just almost as good as the third Note, then how about the second generation? Nokia learned so well, and maybe who knows this year or next, they'll rocks? LoL you sammy fanboy..
As a pro-Sony guy, I'm kinda worried with nokias progress.. If only android isn't so good with the apps, and so flexible with the customs, Nokia are just so steady and stable, for anyone who likes their phone to be simple yet reliable they'll love it. If Nokia made their next device as beautiful as my Z Ultra, I'll definitely go for it.. Or perhaps Sony would release the WP version of Ultra or Z1, with all the Bravia Engine, Exmor, etc2.. Damn the simplicity of Nokia plus the beauty of Sony, just so perfect, what a daydream i had :D
At my house, i use ZU, my brother use Note3, and L1520 for my sister, sometimes we swapped our devices just to try about each other phablet, so I'm familiar with Note3 & L1520. I can say that overall note3 wins it over the nokia, with that gorgeus display and all the other apps and the android factors already a winner. Yet, if you ask for camera, I'll say go for nokia, much better than the sammy had. Another point is the map, man nokia rock in this option too. One more thing, about the battery, the note3 is pathetic, seriously even my brother complaint about it and had envy with my Ultra or my sister's nokia, it's not that "good" at all..
So if i can make a conclusion: if you ask for a complete package with all the mighty stuff, lots of apps and all, go for the sammy, but mind yourself the battery sucks, trust me.. If you don't mind for a "not-so much" apps (you can still find the main apps on nokia though) get bored with all the sammy's stuff, wanted a better camera, better maps, better battery, and asking for simplicity yet powerful, go for nokia (it can do everything as good as sammy for me..) But, i still can't move from my Z Ultra, its still the best.. oopss sorry :p
Nokia have the better connectivity wireless and radio, better materials, better display, better battery, better camera, better audio, better resistance, better integration social,better browser and better PRICE . Samsung have S-pen to used with gloves!!! I like Android O.S. but y preferred W8 . W8 with notification are will be perfect. ��
In fact in the past, the camera update with Lumia Amber had punchier colors...which was denounced by photo purists...somehow another patch was released to restore "natural" color reproduction...a couple of months later. May be Nokia in future could take a balanced approach to fix it or just leave it "natural" for photography lovers! Anyways, it just depends on what majority believes...
astalavista, 30 Dec 2013@rooney calm your pants fanboy geeesh, L1520 is like the 1st Note that Samsung released, do... moreHey boy calm i know you are compensating yourselves buying a crap phone with boring OS. You'll never understand the might of android. The note series is a pioneer of phablet, the original note was a foundation and it was a success and was killer at that. I hate samsung too, but i respect their note series and gorgeous amoled displays.
shils, 03 Jan 2014note3 is much better then lumia 1520 in all accepts........ There is a huge difference in 'most' and 'all'...
king, 03 Jan 2014wow note 3 has completely destroyed nokia lumia 1520.nokia fans stop crying accept the fact t... moreNot exactly. It won because of
2) Third Generation phablet
4) Relating to the second point. As it's an experienced device, therefore, it tends to be better in most aspects.
Now saying destroying is just biased. Calling Nokia fans crying is another biased statement. You could have only said that Note 3 won over 1520 but dragging your personal feelings and calling out others is just one thing a fanboy does. Therefore, it's you who were upset over people here saying Nokia did better here and there and wrote a reply to counter in such a way that they feel ashamed off. Nice logic...
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2014so note 3 won most category, but nokia fan boys still say the lumia 1520 is the winner?They cannot digest defeat i guess. Even though they got one 1520 they WILL resell/exchange it within 8-9 months. Why ?? 1520 is like cannon without the cannonball.
Cannon= Harder which is good
Cannonball= Software (which EVERYONE knows has a ton of restriction)
Gelvin - Maximus, 03 Jan 2014In 2011, bigger is better trend started it's steps and this is what Sammy have caught. This is... moreI agree. Marketing strategy these days....it's btw sad to know that my 3 months old s4 is outdated once i got to read your comment. Technology forcing time to move so fast.
It all comes down to apps. Why?? Because phablets are and should be in my opinion a very creative device which should not be bound by the limitation of apps normally suffered on windows platform. So for now it is a smarter choice to have a android phablet of any good brand.
Mr Gav, 02 Jan 2014You need to know how to get the most out of the camera. The Lumia 1520 pureview easily beats t... moreOf course the 1520's camera is better than the Galaxy S3"GS3". As for in the case of the Note3"GN3" obviously it's not so far superior. What's wrong with the test?? Because Samsung had advantages? Because the PurView did not show absolute dominance? The Note's camera did not demolish the 1520. The test does not ever in any case include having to fine tune the camera to perfect use...And in that case both cameras could theoretically get even better results.
Maybe in the case of 1520 there will be an update or two that fix some software because it's performance for it's name is not that great...But in the meantime it happened and fanboys need to stop calling "bluff".
