However you cannot deny that the 1520 is still a very nice device. It's screen is not "better", but among the top and very beautiful.
I was howver very surprised with the camera results....
note 3 trashed lumia in most of the tests..i'm a sony fan but without a question note 3 is the best phablet
AnonD-27765, 30 Dec 2013I thought the Lumia 1520 had better display than the Note 3?Some tests show it might have an edge in sunlight visibility. Not the same as better.

Do you have anything to brag about besides sales? Quality over quantity is the way to go and seems like you have bitten the dust already. Good luck with that boy.
You are a weird fanboy...
@astalavista & adrian, you'll need to accept the fact, that the NOTE 3 is undoubtely the better phablet, nokia is just copying the phablet idea of THE SAMSUNG, also to make you feel your place in the real world, once both the companies provide us with the sales of both the phones, we'll know what the world choose. HAHA you all know that samsung has the biggest sales numbers so good luck copying and boasting nokia fanboys
I have already decided. My phablet is OPPO N1, I ordered N1 and waiting for it...I hope it will be better than these two phablets.

The Lumia 1520 is far better designed, made, materials are much better in every way and the camera is very good. I hope it will be available soon. The Lumia 1520 and note 3 are not for comparison. The HTC One Max, Nokia Lumia 1520, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Huawei Ascend Mate are the ones in the same competition.
I think this is not a very just review. First on build quality, witch I think the lumia is much better. Messaging on the note has more options that almost nobody uses but lumia's online chat is very good. Photo viewing on windows is simpler and sincs facebook, twitter, instagram and skydrive in one menu. You camera breakdown is a joke, honestly. Gaming wise there are titles exclusive to windows phone and you don't mention that. Not to mention WP is overall a much faster experience. You have made also very good valid points in favor of the note and android. I think overall your results should be much closer.
calm your pants fanboy geeesh, L1520 is like the 1st Note that Samsung released, don't forget you're comparing a device of 3rd generation and a company that made it's first tablet and still trying to improve just like Note was with gingerbread and then improved after Note 2 and 3
AnonD-27765, 30 Dec 2013I thought the Lumia 1520 had better display than the Note 3?Either you could agree or live in myth.
Bwahahahaha! This is note 3's supremacy what i told! I dont want to say this, but still i have to. Haters, on to ur face! Take that..! Just making a phone @6" n putting sd 800 will not make it a worthy contender to the not 3. Its a killer droid! And those who were bragging about 1520's screen, you have it! Result shows its nt "the best".
Finally, hats off gsma! Such a good review its been.
Both great devices but for me Note 3 is more useful with the pen, 3GB DRAM, AMOLED, Google services and the Smart Dock that turns it into a PC.
I still like Nokia and wish to own such camera monster like Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 but I'm quite happy that my Note 3 still stays very strong against other big rivals. What a great all-rounder!
