  • The Best smart phone I have ever had and so easy to use familiar Microsoft and Windows features and software

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I have been using the 1520 for over a year and it has proved a brilliant buy. I use Microsoft and Windows Solutions on my desk top and laptop and it is a fairly seamless experience to use the same features on the Windows phone. It promises to be even better when Windows 10 is available for the phone. Cortana is genuinely helpful, unlike mobile assistant offerings on other devices I have tried. The screen is a great size and the resolution is fantastic. I have been able to work remotely on business software, using the phone and it has been a good experience (and brilliant not to have to take a laptop everywhere). I have even put right a clients entries on cloud software , whilst enjoying tapas. A happy client helped by a relaxed professional. All my team are switching to the latest Windows phones and I am grateful that Microsoft had the foresight to buy Nokia. This is a great working tool, but it is also very pretty and great fun to own and use.

    Pros: Great size screen to navigate documents Plenty of apps to stay connected Many options for calendering Nice camera for sports shots indoors and outdoors Cortana works well when I'm driving - hands free. Been using Windows phones for 5+ years. I wouldn't choose anything else Very durable phone Cons: Locked up 3 times in the 8 months I had it. Can't think of anything else at the moment

  • What phone do I get after this?!

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    The Nokia Lumia 1520 has been with me for a little over a year, and it's been the best phone I've had so far. After you get used to the size, you will have no problems with it. Watching Netflix and videos on the big screen is great, btw! Excellent camera and way faster than the other Windows Phones I've used. The front-facing camera could be improved, but the 20MP camera in the back takes excellent pictures. The only problem I have right now is not knowing what phone to get (that can surpass this one) when my contract is up. Any suggestions?

  • I'd be happy with the 1020 and 1520 devices for life!

    Overall Rating

    We have owned both the 1020 and 1520 models since they came out, love them! Unmatched cameras, great features, perfect for business user. Nokia knew how to build a phone right up until Microsoft bought them. Unfortunately Microsoft dumbed down all the future models and ruined everything Nokia was, so it's doomed in my eyes, unless MS puts Nokia back in charge. However, these two models are awesome devices, and integrate wonderfully with all MS Office apps, and Adobe, so a businessperson does not need an office, especially with the aid of Live.com and it's many automated synchronization features, allowing all your devices to contain identical data.

  • The best phone I have ever owned

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This is simply the best phone I have ever owned. The screen is big enough to use with Microsoft office for productivity and also for all my games. It has great picture quality and is easy to read anywhere. The reception is great. I have to get pretty far off the beaten path to loose signal. One of the best features is the battery life. My students and I had a challenge to see who could get their phone to last the longest without recharging and I won hands down. It is big but not too big. The only reason I did not give this phone a perfect rating is that it does not connect with a blue tooth keyboard. That would make this phone perfect.

    This is one of the best phones I have ever owned. When I damaged my first 1520 I even purchased another one. I have always purchased Windows phone but this one is the greatest. The updates always improve the phone. I have had no major problems with the phone. If I was still working it would be a great thing to be able to take my office with me. This phone has everything. It is a great phablet. If it is still on the market, in the future, I will purchase another 1520.

    Overall Rating

    This phone is beautifully crafted. The large screen and tiles are my favorite features. On the low side this phone is glitchy and it freezes constantly. It would be my phone of choice if the product actually would work long enough for me to explore its capabilities. All in all I feel that I've wasted my time and money on a product that had me captivated at first sight. Im so disappointed.

    I've had this Lumia for a while now and even though there are other Lumia/Windows Phones on the market, nothing compares to my 1520. I've had several interactions with the "S series" and the "numbered" phones. The major pro of this phone is the battery life OMG. I don't know how I am going to pick a successor Lumia to this one.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This phone is amazing actually feels like my little assistant. It never leaves my hand and not because of the size but because its so darn handy and easy to use. I'm a college student and I have a windows laptop so having everything sync through OneDrive including Microsoft Office is just great. I have mine in yellow. Cortana is one of my favorite features, just amazing. and the camera is superb. fits so much in one picture. The only thing I don't absolutely love (and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5) is the app store and front camera in dim to dark light but that's understandable plus there are features to fix that problem on the phone. Battery life is amazing and I've had this for almost a year now.

    Great business tool, more dependable that my experience with Android or IOS based phones. I can't wait for the Windows 10 phone operating system final release! I have been testing the preview for a couple of months and I like what I am seeing. I have been impressed by Windows 10 on both desktop and phone and seeing the potential to operate together and the common app development. Microsoft looks like a good buy to me.

    The 1520 is by far the best phone I have ever owned. I have had it for almost a year and it is still a great phone and performs just as good as the day I purchased it. I like a large phone so the 6.0 screen is right up my alley. I was using a NOTE 2 before I purchased my 1520. If you are looking for a phone that has a lot of apps and games then windows is not the program for you. But if you want seamless flow going from screen to screen and a high quality display the NOKIA LUMIA 1520 is the phone for you. I would gladly put it up against any other phone out there even at over a year old.

    It is the smartphone I've always dreamed of. High resolution full HD screen, high quality 20mpx camera, 32GB internal memory, NFC enabled, Wireless charging enabled, good sound quality for voice calls, great for watching movies, tv shows & gaming, and to top it all off, the continuing and ongoing technical and updating support of Microsoft. I mean seriously, what more could you possibly want?? It is a shame that this phone is not in production anymore and has become very difficult to find and purchase (unless it's second hand). I love it...definitely recommend it.

    I have had my Lumia for about a year now, and I use it all the time! It's so easy to use. I don't have to use the voice commands or Cortana, but it's an option, and I love to have options. The features are spectacular! I'm not sure how Nokia and Windows is going to beat this one! I may not have all the same applications, and have to wait for those new ones to come out for my particular device, but I won't give up my phone because of that. I also like the fact that it will be updated with the newest OS and other features. If you don't like Windows Phones, I encourage you to at least try it. :)

  • Lumia 1520 is a fantastic phone.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I have been using my Lumia 1520 for the past 9 months and its been excellent. The features are fantastic with a great screen and battery life. I charge my phone almost after 2 days with heavy usage of apps, video, games, etc. The 6' Full HD resolution screen is fantastic for viewing videos and games. The 20 MP camera is very good and shoots great photos & videos. Whether its work or personal use, the phone works like a charm. Overall I am very satisfied with my Lumia 1520. The only downside which I can think of is it doesn't have 4G option and its size may be an issue for people having small hands. But for me, its not a problem!

    I've used my 1520 for over 1 year now. I came from a 920 and thought the 1520 would be a temp phone since it's so large. to my surprise after 2 hours of using it I never went back to my 920. The phone has a long battery, great screen and the size is just perfect. The apps for the phone are great. I don't miss out on any apps. I had a android before and I will never go back to a slow lagging phone again. Windows OS is great and easy to use
