    The 1520 is the phone Microsoft should have based all Lumia phones on, when a stranger or friend see's my phone they love it. Most of the time they are impressed with the way it feels in their hand, the camera blows their mind, and the screen clarity is top-notch.

    My Lumia 1520 is truly the best phone I have ever had and if you are on the fence about Windows phones you definitely need to demo it. Sleek, responsive, and big enough to not get lost in my hand..... Oh, did I mention I don't need to charge my 1520 daily? The battery is extremely effective with an average of almost days before needing a charge!

    I brought this phone last year. The screen won't make it last, because it's not a Corning Gorilla 3 glass. There's no hard cases for this phone, so if you have this phone you need to carry it carefully.

    Ok, this phone is sooo cool I don't know where to begin. First, GORGEOUS! It is thin light and svelt! This phone is sexy right out the box! And when Cortana starts responding and talking, you instantly fall in love with it! (Not Like that movie though) The screen is so bright, I dont need a flashlight app! The pictures, WOW, better than my Nikon! The battery is good, for a thin as it is, but this thing want the Juice, a standard charger computer, or battery backup just wont due! I love this phone!

    The phone screen is very weak. 3 exchange the same thing happen to every phone. The screen pop off like it so fragile. I thought nokia is durable ? guess their product aren't. The phone program freezes. Multiple time even when left in pockets. My first Nokia and it will be my last.

    I went from a Blackberry to an LG Windows 7 phone to what I have currently, the Nokia 1520. You will get a lot of comments about the size of the phone, the screen is sharp and icons are easy to resize. The complaints I have is that when I am running some games, the phone gets really warm on the top) and sometimes if you are not putting it on a sleep mode, it gets pretty warm in your pocket. So just be aware of that. otherwise, great for reading emails and stuff

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I really rate this phone, I've been an Android user for years but when I first used Windows 8.1, I was hooked, the Windows phone 8.1 environment is miles more fluid, and easy to use, and Cortana is a brilliant personal helper, you don't have to speak to her in a over exaggerated way, just talk in a normal way. I know the App Store will soon get more and more apps, although there are loads there that will cover all the bases. The build of the Lumia 1520 is second to none, the camera lens and software are second to none, and the screen quality is top notch, sharp a detailed. I think the battery saver is another very clever bit of the WP 8.1 , and I can't wait to see what in store with Windows phone 10

    Overall Rating

    My primary intention was to take good photographs. I could not believe my eyes after seeing the photographs taken with this phone and that too in the RAW format (DNG). With this format you have got plenty of room for editing either on phone (i use Adobe Photoshop Express) or in Lightroom. For the phone itself, it does not match with the number of apps iOS or Android has, but hope this will expand. But some of apps built by Microsoft are very good.

    I come from a humble background of smartphone usage - the only phone I had before was a small, 3G mulitmeida device with so much limited functionality... and I was content! When an upgrade rolled around 2 years later, I decided to go with the the biggest and most souped up device I could find, and that was the Lumia 1520. This phone is an absolute power house! The thin frame sports a 6-inch display that has a high pixel density count allowing for unparalleled resolution, even looking at an angle. Colors pop out, and using it in the sun cranks brightness to the maximum providing for the best readability I have ever seen on any mobile device. The poly-carbonate casing has an inviting feel to it, and the device sits nicely in my hand. Additionally, the matte colors available make for such a nice finish - I chose yellow. Aside from aesthetics, Windows 8.1 running on the Denim Update changed the game for this device. Everything is fluid, highly-customizable, and intuitive. There is a nice choice of apps, but it doesn't hold up to the libraries of other mobile operating systems; Windows Phone is not the hottest for developers right now. The battery is unlike anything I have ever seen lasting for well over a day of heavy use. The final feature that really makes this device a seller is the 20 MP rear camera and 4k recording ability. Pictures look so crisp and natural, and video runs at a smooth 30 frames per second with resolution that is second to none. Users will love hearing "You took that picture with your phone?" - it is seriously that good. I have had this device for almost a year now and I am so glad with my choice. The Lumia 1520 is an outstanding smartphone to start off with, and it will only get better with Windows 10 around the corner. Pick this up if you can, you will not be sorry!

    The Nokia 1520 works great for me. I use it for mu personnel life and for keeping my career life on track. The calendar with Cortana is really helpful. The phone has a great memory, amazing camera quality, and I love the large screen that I can easily see in the sun. The only draw back is that windows phones are new and it is a little hard at first to learn how to use it. However, its still pretty simple and nokia/Microsoft has tutorial videos.

  • The phone with EVERYTHING

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    The phone literally does have everything - 4G, v4 bluetooth, 20MP camera, great screen (full HD), expandable memory, NFC, the lot. Best of all, it just WORKS. Not had one problem since I've been using it. The screen is a nice size to watch TV during downtime, I can stream music from my onedrive or the built in MixRadio (both for free), and it's easy to get a great photo with the camera. I thought the live photos within the lumia camera app would be a bit of a gimmick (they move a frame or two from before the photo was 'taken'), but it's actually quite a nice touch when you look back. There's a SatNav (with voice & turn-by-turn) built in and this is about the only thing I'll find drains the battery. Still enough juice to use on the way to work, use phone all day & drive back (1hr each way), so can't really complain there. Otherwise the phone can do 2 days general use before needing the wall. If you like a lot of apps then the Microsoft store is a little behind there atm, but you're able to get all the main social/ shopping/travel/media/productivity apps now & there's enough for what I need. This phone is an AMAZING flagship device which in my opinion has yet to be replaced, so my advice would be "if you can find one, buy it!".

    The Lumia 1520 is my third Windows phone (HTC HD2/WinCE -> Samsung Omnia 7 / WP7 -> Lumia 1520/WP8.1) and by far the largest! Any concerns about its size soon evaporated; it's a two handed device for the most part and that's fine for me, but it is so thin and light that making phone calls does not feel in the least bit awkward or uncomfortable. The large, clear, bright HD screen makes it a useful travel TV and a useful eBook reader. The camera is excellent; the best camera I’ve ever owned! Whatever antennae lurk inside are top notch; phone call capability is faultless, Wi-Fi reception and transmission is excellent and Bluetooth is stable and reaches a good distance too. You can get away with charging the phone every two or three days with modest usage, but I charge mine each night using a wireless charging plate anyway. No fiddle with cables, I just put it down on the bedside table and it recharges overnight whilst I do too. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending the Lumia 1520 to someone after a phone with a large screen. The great thing about Windows Phone is that if size matters and you want something less imposing, then you have the rest of the Lumia range to choose from with exactly the same software features (hardware allowing). You are not penalised for prudent shopping.

    Nokia Lumia 1520 is a dream come true experience, under its hood its a powerhouse. First time in so many years I can use a phone for about 2days without charging even with heavy gaming, internet, and photography. Lumia camera being the other best of this phone. Amateur photography has reached a new dimension with this device.

    I have been a Lumia fan since it launched - graduating from the 800, 900, 920, testing the 930 and now a beautiful green 1520 imported from Germany. The battery life is astounding, it's fast, the screen is superb, the integration of Office and compatibility with Exchange excellent. Viewing attachments a breeze. Why have anything else?!
