Nokia Lumia 1520 First Thoughts!

[embedit snippet=”fluids”]nokia_lumia_1520.b94d5083111.original

The Lumia 1520 got plenty of hype up until its release, but did you think the new phablet will get all the praise we thought it would.  When I look for a flag ship device I look for a few things, display, specs, and camera.  Lets see if this new phablet has what it takes to be the face of the Nokia Lumia line.

Display:

  • 6.4 x 3.4 x 0.34 in.; 7.4 oz
  • 6.0 1080p HD; 367ppi
  • Colors: Red, Black, White, and Yellow

So if you can’t tell this display is a beast and it is also quite bright.  Nokia-Lumia-15203

Specs:

  • Windows 8 GDR3 and Lumia Black
  • 2.2GHz quad-core; Qualcomm Snapdragon 800
  • 2GB of Ram
  • 3,400mAh Battery
  • Wireless charging

Under the hood this baby is a monster.  The new processor is going to have this phone performing at blazing speeds, 2GB of ram, and the mammoth of a battery, which is currently the biggest battery to be put in any phone.  So it is safe to say the 1520 has the spec sheet covered.

Camera:

  •  20-megapixel pureview camera
  • F2.4 aperturenokia_lumia_1520_yellow-back
  • 1080p HD video
  • 1.2-megapixel front facing camera

Like all the Lumia phones the camera doesn’t disappoint.  The F2.4 aperture is a step up from the 1020’s F2.2.  The camera is said to be able to keep up with the 1020’s 41MP shooter, so no worries there.

Over all the phone is not only a beast under the hood with its specs, but also in size.  I think this new phablet will have all the real “nokia power users” at the door of AT&T on this baby’s release date.  Personally if this thing ever hits verizon wireless I will be at the door.  And feel free to comment and let us know what you think about the 1520.

    1520 needs to be on Verizon too. Who at Verizon or Nokia screwed that opportunity up?

    • I agree with you 100% on that one, but they are suppose to bring some kind of 1520 variant to Verizon.

    f/2.4 (1/2.4) is actually a step down from f/2.2 (1/2.2)! Because f/2.2 equals to a bigger aperture, thus more light intake.

    • the f/2.2 does cause a bigger lens opening but the f/2.4 causes greater depth of field and a sharper background. So you lose something and you gain something, it just depends on how you look at it.

        And if full-size samples are any indication even with f/2.4 aperture Lumia 1520 is wonderful in low-light capture.
