The Nokia Lumia 1520 has become an old device. But due to the significantly lower price tag, it has become a valuable device for the cost conscious consumers. In this article, you will find the detailed review of the device. Take a look at it.
Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: Design
The solid unibody polycarbonate plastic casing has benefitted the Lumia 1520 with extreme sturdiness. It will survive even though it falls down from your hand accidentally. However, it is too big to grab comfortably. It is also chunkier than the other smartphones. So, if you love to have a compact phone, it’s not the right choice for you.
Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: Display
The massive 6-inch display has a relatively lower pixel density of 367 ppi. However, practically, it still manages to outperform other Windows phones in its class. Just put it beside Lumia 1020 while displaying a high-quality image. You will see the real difference. In fact, it can go toe to toe with the display of the Nexus 7 tablet. The texts and videos look absolutely fantastic. Its white balance is really great. However, color balance should have been much better. We have noticed slightly grey tint in the background of the web pages.
Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: Camera
The 20-MP rear shooter of the Nokia Lumia 1520 is still the best in its class. It produces pictures with an extremely high color accuracy at the daylight. Unlike the other smartphone shooters, it doesn’t make the sky overexposed. However, we have found an issue. While zooming in, the images tend to lose their sharpness significantly. Otherwise, the overall performance of the shooter is really impressive.
Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: Performance
The Snapdragon 800 processor has become really old. And the 2 GB RAM doesn’t sound great in these days of powerful smartphones having 4 GB RAM. Nonetheless, the Lumia 1520 manages to perform brilliantly with the help of Windows operating system, which offers lag-free experience. The score of 897 points in BaseMark OS II benchmark test says it all. The latest mid-range games run flawlessly on it. However, you might struggle a bit with the high-end ones.
Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: Battery
The 107 hour endurance rating has made the 3,400 mAh battery one of the most powerful ones of all time. If you use it moderately, like making some calls, checking emails and playing games casually, it can last more than two days pretty easily. However, if you tend to play games very often, it will not last more than a day.
Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: The Verdict
The Nokia Lumia 1520 may not have any groundbreaking feature. But it does have everything that the cost conscious consumers are looking for, including great battery life, decent rear shooter and cheap price tag of $229.95. So, if you really want to make the best use of your money, it is the best choice for you.
