NOKIA LUMIA 1320- MAKE AN IMPACT. GO TRENDY

Nokia Lumia 1320

Nokia announced it’s one of the most awaited phablet smartphone, Nokia Lumia 1320, in October 2013 which was later launched in January 2014. With it’s amazing design, colors, HD display, big screen size and good processing speed , Lumia 1320 is a milestone phone for Nokia. It is one of the two phablets launched by Nokia in it’s Lumia series along with Nokia Lumia 1520 which is also a very good phablet by Nokia. Like the Lumia 1520  it also has a 6 inch screen size. A micro sim is supported by the phone. Along with the many features which the Lumia 1320 flaunts there is this Dolby Earphone Sound Enhancement system which enhances the sound output by a good deal. With 164.2 x 85.9 x 9.8 mm (6.46 x 3.38 x 0.39 in) dimensions , this phone is surely big, but with big screen size comes good user experience. Nokia Lumia 1320 comes with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory which can be further expanded to 64 GB with micro SD cards. It comes in four flashy colors- yellow, white, black, red. 7 GB free Sky Drive storage is also provided by Microsoft. You’ll find the loudspeaker okay, but the earphones provided by Nokia are pretty lousy. Unlike Lumia 1520, Lumia 1320 has a removable back cover.

CAMERA

The primary camera of Nokia Lumia 1320 is pretty good for a 5 MP camera I must say. The 5 MP camera comes with an auto focus, LED flash, and captures photos of 2592 X 1944 resolution which is quiet amazing. Nokia has always been good in cameras and has never disappointed it’s customers at that.

More features of the primary camera are the 1/4″ sensor size, which is quiet great. Geo tagging, touch focus are the other things to look about in the primary camera of the windows smartphone.

Videos can be recorded in Lumia 1320 in 1080p at 30 frames per second. With the huge storage space, you would not have to compromise with the video quality of your phone, Nokia makes sure of that.

A secondary or front camera is also available for video calling or for making calls on Skype. The secondary camera is a basic VGA camera, but it does it’s job very well and efficiently.

I’ll give the camera a 8/10.

DISPLAY

Nokia Lumia 1320 has an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors. The big 6″ screen is idle for windows platform as you can put a lot of tiles of applications and games on your home screen and it looks quiet neat. The 6″ screen has 720 X 1280 pixels with 245 ppi pixel density. And yes, it supports multitouch. Like the Lumia 1520 it also has the protection of Corning Gorilla glass 3 with clear black display-a set of polarizing filters, which minimize glare. Even with a big screen, the battery backup of this smartphone is quiet amazing.

Now if we talk about gaming, then the gaming experience on this phablet is superb. With a 6″ big screen, 1 GB RAM, there is no game on the Windows Apps market that you cannot install and play on this phone.

Visibility in sunlight is also good. Display of the phone is clearly visible even in bright sunlight. No trouble is encountered in that case.

Display gets 6/10.
