People not only want ... moreBuy an android phone there are plenty WP is probably not for u I miss nothing from andriod oter than tv out. I love my 1520 not going back to android soon am coming from a note 8.0 and an s4 i9500
Best phablet hands down. Mine is running 8.1.1 developer previewand I can tell u its not the windows phone 8 that came with my 920. I dont lack any apps and the kids corner is A+. I have two friends with note 3's before I got this beast but was not impressed with the note 3 its like a big galaxy s4 also I gave up on Infrared port and remote control since windows mobile days. A happy L1520 customer. By the way sold my s4 i9500 after I bought this also hd a note 8.0 and hardly use the S pen.
Is the sunlight legibility test done with assertive display mode ?
how the sunlight contrast ratio is low for 1520 ?
Does anyone one know why the sunlight legibility test done by Gsmarena for Lumia 1520 gave low score though it has assertive display ?
Xxx, 24 Dec 2013Please stop comparing, it's window phone and Android. If want Android, just buy and enjoy it. ... moreI agree with you. Android is Android while Windows is Windows. If any prefer Windows go for it and if Android go for it and there should not be comparison.

Every time I read a Nokia phone review here it always start with prediction of nokia's death and yet the review always end up with a begrudging admittance that it is a good phone. I have samsung note 3 which I hated. So many features but none useful. I also have Nokia n8 and the camera though old could still kick note 3 in terms of quality. I want to change to a new phone and I have always felt if Nokia could give their phones faster processor it would be awesome. I also want a phone with good sound quality and great camera. With this one for once I am considering retiring my n8. Pls stop with starting every article with nokia's death or last phone. They may not be coming up with lots of versions but I can see they are catching up on their own time. This phone sounds great and being Nokia no doubt the hardware will be surname. Software can be upgraded.
I have used Nokia 1520 for at least two weeks and below are my feed backs.
- Build quality is awesome
- Phone is dam fast with Windows 8.
- Awesome camera
- Display is awesome and touch response is buttery smooth.
- Phone doesn't lags at all.
- Lack of apps in the windows store
- Apps which are currently in the store needs updates but still not updated like whatsapp.
- No option to increase the vibration intensity. I have missed many calls while travelling when the phone was in vibration mode.
- No option to move the pictures taken from camera to move them into folder.
- No option to select multiple pics at a time and delete them. Deletion can only be done one by one.
- You cannot customize the WP. Only customization is you can change the color of the tiles.
- No notifications on top when you get any messages or mails.
- No notification light which is very useful when you get any mails or msgs, and this should be given in a highly priced phone like this.
My personal experience - WP is good in some departments but still way behind android. I still dont see them in race with android at the moment but they can change things later.
Not a phone for people who loves many apps. Windows play store still lack badly.
This an awesome all around phone, it's big but got use to it fast. The screen and camera is amazing, the phone is very fluid and smooth no freeze up or lags. The phone has great signal the best i have experience and built quality is excellent, i love this phone cannot wait for the 8.1 update.
When Nokia will wake up and realize that Android had done the milestone !! expensive phone for no decent features, no apps !!! there is no BBM, so how would you encourage me to switch to your phone when you pay for most of the apps !!!!! poor screen sensitivity, it is a very complicated smart phone and not worth a $1
I think Nokia and Microsoft do not understand the current market trends. People not only want to take great pictures but they want to organize them into folders too. Symbian was lacking it and it died. WP lacks it but still alive thanks to great hardware but for how long???
Amazing phablet, but I wait till the Lumia 1320, it's cheaper and I don't need neccesarily the highest spec for it.
Anonymous, 27 Dec 2013Yeah this is the best phone of Nokia but I am confused on Nokia 1020 and 1520 .actually I am c... moreThe 1020 has a higher pixel resolution and is more compact than the 1520. There is approximately a 20-megapixel advantage the 1020 has over the 1520.
Having said that, unless looking at extremely zoomed pictures of each, the human eye has trouble discerning the differences between those two high-resolution cameras, even though the 1020 has twice as high a level of resolution as the 1520.
Bottom line-- if you like a more compact unit, choose the 1020. If you like more real estate in terms of screen size, the 1520 is for you.
There is, in my opinion, no *practical* difference between the cameras.
Windows 8, a platform that features Microsoft Office as a selling point, continues to commit the mortal sin of not being compatible with HID devices, specifically a Bluetooth keyboard.
Why they continue to ignore the HID Bluetooth profile and deny their users the simple joy of having a full screen to view and an actual keyboard on which to type, ESPECIALLY given Microsoft Office, is beyond me.
