Nokia Lumia 1520 reviews and suggestions to make it better:
Pros: As per my experience I recommend the Nokia 1520 if you like photography specially.
1) Camera is better than any other mobile
2) Awesome processor
3) Plenty of RAM
4) Plenty of Space
5) Plenty of Battery
6) Big Size screen for better readability
7) Fast and powerful phone and definitely fill the Tablet and Mobile purpose.
8) Office apps are better than Android and iPhone
Cons: The biggest put off of the product is very limited apps, I think below apps should be part of the phone which can give more value add to the product.
1) No contact or phone directory app, we need to rely upon Gmail or any other email account to sync the mobile contacts. So user have to import the contact excel file to gmail and then sync it to phone. If user is not techie he/she never can copy phone numbers from Android or iPhone to windows phone.
2) The message app should have the bigger text box, its very small as compare to the size of the phone.
3) The text editing is complex and it should behave as iPhone and android give freedom to move cursor anywhere in the editor without any difficulty. It is bit complex and non-technical people can find difficulty to handle this functionality.
4) The connectivity widgets are not available on the fly as in Android devices. This app is a biggest missing in the product, and it should be developed to change the status of the connections as in the Android mobile.
5) Registry and cache cleaner apps are missing in the Microsoft and Nokia store.
6) Folder explorer are not up to the mark as Android.
7) Many international voip calling apps are missing.
I recommend the phone on speed, camera, and few good apps as well and recommend it to 8 out of 10 points. Only few apps need to be developed and it will beat all the other players in the market
hari, 29 Jun 2014hi friends am planning buy new nokia lumia 1520.is it realy a gud phone?.how is the battery ba... moreHi hari, believe me when i say I was a fan of android. I used to use Samsung all along. Until i realised that Samsung phones show a lag. I hate that, especially when i say other phones perform better.
so i started using core android phones like nexus4 & later nexus5. But i still wasn't happy cause if they didn't lag, their UI wasn't completely user friendly. So my search for a better phone continued.
after 6 years, i shifted to WP8. Its a different but a lag free platform. The apps really don't match up, but enough their to not affect your working.
battery life is really good. 2 days and i am still at 23% left as of now. Being a Dr i use my phone extensively. Pts in email, reports on email, Facebook updates of my profession, query replies. Drafting letters and reports. All with this device.
i haven't updated to 8.1 since it isn't released officially, but im sur that it won't let me down.
bye it if your heart is set on this. Trust me it will not disappoint you, if you are willing to accept a change and let go of some minor nitty-gritty.
I m planning to buy this phne .. bt i heard that this phne having troubles with the 8.1 update....... is that true ?

geo, 27 Jun 2014How do I make 1520run only on 3G mode? Go to settings -> Mobile Network -> Highest connection speed -> then select 3G
Bought a white one earlier this week and am happy with my decision. No more drags like in android. Had a SG Note which my better half has now using as a second phone. If there could be shortcuts from the main screen to access and turn on/off the wifi and 3G, it will be very useful, the way it is available in Android. Though a big mobile, it doesn't seem heavy on the hand. Would using the wireless charger (got it free with the mobile) spoil the mobile cover? Takes quite a long time to charge with the blackberry bold's charger.
Mobile youtube quality is brilliant on 3G and above. Google is being nasty by not providing a native app and pulled the app Microsoft developed. IE11 on WP 8.1 does a good job.
