Product Review: Nokia Lumia 1520

Nokia is trying to bounce back by getting bigger in mobiles. Yup, as you know the Nokia Lumia 1520 has a 6-inch display and hmm… pretty big for a regular pocket. But why go big when small seems to be the way to go?


It’s a phablet not just a smartphone that’s why.

Ah, so are they trying to conquer the world of phablets? Seems to be. At any rate, let’s go through some notable factors on this interesting creation by Nokia.

First, though the size is the first thing that you’d notice with the Lumia 1520 – it’s its value and what comes with the size that matters more.

This means a bigger working area for you. Then again, does bigger mean better? Well, whether you’re a student doing school work, or a professional carrying out company projects – yes. But would you be willing to bring it in a bag instead of putting it in your more reachable pocket? If that’s the case, wouldn’t it be better then to just use a “separated” laptop and smartphone instead?

The next critical factor about Lumia 1520 is its 3400 mAh battery. Oh, it could actually last for more than a day with numerous texts and phone calls to boot. Even so, most consumers would certainly want even a 48-hour battery if possible, instead of having to constantly charge which just gives owners that hassle.


Lastly, Lumia’s camera has addressed what many smartphones have not including that of its predecessors – which is the camera’s “shutter lag.” See, even if Lumia 1020’s camera comes with 41-megapixels, the value of fixing the “shutter lag” is far more crucial especially to those who value real time photography.

On the other hand, the “firsts” that were installed in Lumia 1520 is basically about speed; but then, what is speed if the operating system is a bit faulty? This is something Lumia 1520 has to address if it were to be a truly “top-of-the-mind” phablet.
