Lumia 1520 scores a victory against Note 3 and Xperia Z Ultra in our poll

Lumia 1520 scores a victory against Note 3 and Xperia Z Ultra in our poll
Whether it was because of the hype surrounding the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 1520 or something else, we don't know, but it looks like Nokia's first high-end phablet has really managed to appeal to our readers.

Shortly after the announcement of the gigantic smartphone, we ran a poll, asking you which phablet you'd like to get: the Lumia 1520, Galaxy Note 3, One max or Xperia Z Ultra. Well, even though Samsung's offering put up a real fight, it was the Nokia Lumia 1520 that ended up winning the first place with the staggering 40.37% (1447 votes). Still the Note 3 remains one of the users' favorites, as it has also gotten a pretty large chunk of the votes - 38% (1362 votes). Far behind these two is the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Sony's 6.4" monster received just 14.76% of the votes, but it seems there's the least interest in the HTC One max, which has only 6.86% of the votes. Apparently, the large, aluminum body and fingerprint sensor weren't enough to attract enough attention from users. Well, it looks like Nokia has a real winner on its hands with the Lumia 1520. If only it could bring it faster to market now!

So everyone is going to ditch their carrier and go with AT&T just for the 1520? Yeah okay.

Exactly why Note 3 sales will destroy Lumia 1520 sales. Carrier exclusives are more damaging than productive.

Agreed PBXtech.

I believe Nokia had a winner on their hands with this phablet.. why they thought they had to enter into an exclusive with AT&T.. I have no idea. DUMB MOVE.

I would have taken a serious look at it, but since I'm stuck on Verizon - back to the Note 3 for me!

PA should not believe on the trolls here. They vote for Nokia, just to bash Note 3. But at the end of the day, they all are with iPhones in their pockets. LOL
And, 1520 will end the same sad way like HTC One , and G2, - no matter of the all pushes.
There is no need of such pole. Note 3 is The King. Productivity, classy, pocketability.

Talked with Apple, they wished they could have released the OG iPhone on all the carriers instead of waiting over five years to accomplish that. ;-)

Just accept the fact that the 1500 had the most votes, and quit being a petty, sore looser.. It really is pathetic.

This is the Windows phablet I've been waiting for! Excellent camera, great size, extra memory slot, great screen, Outlook calendar, etc etc. I don't need millions of apps to choose from - don't have the time or energy to choose, I have a life... If 'Android' phones are always going to be 'better' because of that, then why both pretending to review phones? Not everyone is an 18 year old playing games/watching videos/social networking; I am a busy mum and I need a good, reliable phone.

Build wise Samsung needs to improve the Bezel quality. The soft plastic it's made of is the reason I'm trading my Note for the 1520, I've never seen a phone take so much damage. The glass on the Note is better though.

Right now, 1520 only exists on Nokia labs. Stupid fanboy related pools doesn't make a phone 'hit'. Going by this poll, we will see Nokia selling more than Samsung. But that definitely isn't the case.

Samsung 'defined' the phablet-class. Everyone else is just a mere follower. Like it or not, there would be no 1520, no HTC Max if it wasn't for Note series. Everybody thought that large-screened phone was just a bad idea until Note series came into the picture.

BTW, Note is just not a phone with large screen. It's much more than a typical Android phone.

1520 is nothing but a typical WP8 phone. It's just upgraded hardware, nothing in software makes it standout. What makes it any different from 920 or 1020 apart from added hardware? You can't say the same for Note 3. Note 3 is the "king" of phablet category and is the only hit product in that range. Unless Nokia 1520 sales more than Note 3, it will remain as the UNDISPUTED king of phablet range.

so much hate in one post.....thing is all things in this world is followers....samsung copy apple......google copy apple....sony copy nintendo....this kind of topic can go on and on.....but regardless who started it, I think its great we have so many options, you may not see 1520 as a great phablet and that is okay your brand loyalty is on another level....but maybe one day you may see the phone for what it is.....and yes it is better then note 3.....all the note have over it is the stylus and there is an update coming soon for windows that add more features give the os time.......in my opinion android did not become great until 4.0 update and I been with them since the early beginning....but spec to spec Note 3 lost

No it does not mean or even try to imply that Nokia will sell more, it just means that over 40 % of the Phonearena readers or an undefined sub-group of readers will get Lumia 1520 over the other three. Why are you generalising here?

I agree with you about the software, the Note 3 has some intriguing features, while the WPs are mainly the same.

48. Gemmol (Posts: 792; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)


but who is to say they would not buy the phone.....remember the whole world did not vote just a couple people online....and remember phones in general be selling over 1 million and I am sure not 1 million people vote, so are you telling me that 1447 people will not buy 1520 if that is the case why would Nokia sell it, I am assuming they expect to sell more then 1447

i can see people moving towards the note 3 because of its many features which help in one handed operation. on the Lumia 1520 side, its not that the hardware is not there or lack of apps but i don't quite see windows phone made for one handed operation yet

That's what I call stupid uneducated fanboys..

no stylus??
apps for large screen??
what makes use of 6-inch screen in lumia? multi-tasking??
multi-window??
USB 3.0??
ANT+??
aptX??
3GB RAM??
4K recording??
Removable battery??
Barometer??
temperature and humidity sensor??
60 fps FHD recording??
120 fps slow motion HD video??
H.265/HEVC codec support??
FLAC support??
24-bit audio??
USB-OTG??
connect game controllers like PS3 controller to Lumia devices??

not to mention pathetic apps collection for WP in general. What Nokia sells in a year, Samsung does that in a month.

BTW, Samsung would have sold 5 million Note 3 by time Lumia 1520 is even out of the door.

THEN . Why it didn't win

Because 5000 votes on tech website don't represent the world's population of 7.2 billion. Even iPhones didn't win any votes on PA that doesn't mean they don't sell in millions.

BTW, the difference is barely of 100 votes. That would hardly translate anything in real life.
