I don't trust this video, because at 0:42 its pitch black, but you still can't really read the Note 3's screen, they could have easily rigged it.

I'll give credit to where it's due. Not bad at all.

2520 is DOA. 1520 is pretty damn amazing, but carrier exclusive (AT&T) is what's stopping the phone from selling more than it should.

Nokia bought over by Microsoft saga make it a wait and see. Besides windows mobile is not as compelling as android or iOS.

Nokia has a great product, but needs to work harder on distribuition. I fear the 1520 will only reach Brazil around march 2014 (if we took the time the 920 needed to get here as basis for this guess).

By this time, it will already have to face the S5 or the next 10 flagships-like devices Samsung has on the making.

See the 9.8 user review score next to the Note III, the best ever on this site?

Well someone prayed hard cause the 2nd coming is here, and it has an S-Pen!

I did not say that note 3 is a bad device just that the 1520 is better.

I can see it alright, see through the biased reviews made by you and your kin. Scored a 10 on camera? Really? That will make the NL1520 score an 11 and the 1020 a 12. Display 10? NL1520 gets an 11 there as well. Battery 10? Make that 11 for the 1520. No lag you say huh. Try filling up your phone with apps and vids and music, see if it's still as lagproof then! My spouse has an SGS3 and it's far from lagproof. Time to take off your Google Goggles (or glasses whatever) folks! Yes the OS is different. WP8 is lacking some (okay a bunch) of apps but Android is ,issing some as well compared to WP8 especially the Nokia apps. Both OS'es are far from perfect. Which one is better is just based on your personal preference. I like WP8, you like Android or iOS. Nut the Lumia 1520 is top notch and you just have to admit that!

Let's wait and see how much killing the 1520 actually does after it comes out. Its an awesome device there's no denying that, but its the first of its kind. It has to prove its worth as a WP8 phablet in the market before it would be killing N3. Not only are Notes the only phablets that millions of people are familiar with, but they're also the most feature packed IMO.

I think you should be the one praying, seeing as that the Note III is "big man on campus". The 1520 is cool, but it ain't the note III.

This is innovative and can truly improve everyday smartphone/tablet usage, I hope other companies will get on board.

I think the take-home message here is "Don't sign multi-year deals for exclusives with carriers just to get some short-term money flow".

"...will we see it on other smartphones?"

Of Course!! SAMSUNG WILL COPY IT for sure!

Remember the supersensitive touch on NL920?

Samsung copied it!!!

I understand what you are saying but this is something every manufacture should do, everyone should be allowed to use this, it's great for consumers!

Yep, I love Windows Phone, but saying others are "copying" for taking something like this is ridiculous. Everyone needs to be able to use this, as well as the super-sensitive screen. Complain if they take GUI elements or something.

I'm surprised that the big three (Apple, Goole and Microsoft) haven't figured out a way to sell their Mobile OS offerings separately so that it can work with flagship devices such as the Lumia 1020, 1520, Sony Xperia Z (and all its variants), Motorola Droids, iPhones, etc.

People would pay money to have this kind of flexibility if they decided one day that they wanted to try iOS or Droid instead of WP, for example.

Android is free and can be done in theory... In practice is difficult because part of the code in the phone, the equivalent of the "drivers" is propietary and the OEMs don't disclose it. So don't blame the big three, it's the OEMs who don't allow you do to so.
But I would love to see it.
