I think they should also add Lumia 1320.

It may not be the best in specs wise but its definitely more affordable than all the listed ones, hence more people will be able to buy it.

Lol it is not the most affordable. The 1520 is $750 off contract.

@Shatter he was talking about the 1320, not the 1520.

I mean it's great they added the ZU, but no one wants it anymore. It's all about the Note 3 and 1520.

It almost shares the same dimensions as the Nexus 7, therefore I consider it a tablet.

35. pyradark (Posts: 710; Member since: 10 Jun 2012)


actually no
if people dont want cheap build up or WP8 OS
they can go either ZU for build quality
or One Max for Speaker.

i guess in US is all about sammy & apple
but outside both major comapny market share are starting to shrink

Note 3 has Android Apps + Stylus, but it's rear camera pales in comparsion to the Nokia 1520, as does it's audio and video recording abilities (1520 has optical stabilization, a huge advantage). 1520 battery life is also better.

The 1520 has built-in wireless Qi charging, and WP8 OS will run faster and smoother than any device with similiar hardware specs using Android. Also, 1520 touch screen can be used with gloves on...

Nokia's going out with a bang, and this device proves the company still had something left in the tank ;o)

What are you basing that on, that WP is faster than android. I think you should visit the little hospital called xda and then go back to your WP and you will see how it lags. I have tried WP several times, even two of my friends have it and it is lagging just like every other OS out there, it is by no means smooth. Smooth means that under almost no circumstances the OS should lag but as we can see, that is not the case of any mobile OS.
Also using screen with gloves on is not a new technology, I can operate my SGS1 with gloves on, with a knife, with a fork.
Nokia should have focused on making normal phones under 5 inch territory, above 5,5 inches is according to me a tablet. There is much bigger market for phones that are smaller than ¨phablets¨.
Also how exactly do you know that 1520 has a better battery life?
And Note III has a mature OS while 1520 does not, and that decides everything, doesn´t it?!
This phone (1520) is by no means worldchanging, sure it probably will have the best recorded audio but nothing else is new that we haven´t seen before, no sapphire glass on the front, no new chassi, no holo-projector from Star Wars :)) (this was a joke, for those who didn´t get it). Sure it might be great, but Nokia is just trying to catch up with android phones, but that is it.

There's Note 3, and there are other regular phones/phablets. Not even a comparison.

The 1520 might take it here, because this site is/has always been full of nokia fanboys.
But the sales will talk by themselves. And the comparisons too.. But then again, fanboys are going to call them biased.

Lol no... Max is DOA. Same can be said about the 1520 since only AT&T is the only carrier in the US that'll sell it.

I just don't understand these silly carrier exclusives. Samsung and apple learned not to do em, and they're the industry leaders. You'd think others would follow suit.

No... The Note 3 and S4 are still selling so those numbers are still increasing.

The S4 sales are decreasing because consumers are going for the note 3 ;)

its hard actually but if you ask me
ill take sony design slim and nokia 20mp pureview.
fingerprint is waste of time
S-pen only used it for business type people

I beg to differ. I find the note 3 design more appealing. That huge camera hump on this lumia is not a looker. The lumia 920 camera now had an excellent design.

+1 Rodkurt.

Please dont insult phablets by calling ZU and this crap by the same name. Diemnsions should be considered before that.
