Nokia Lumia 1520 vs LG G2
Laying claim to the larger battery, we’re not shocked to find that it’s the Nokia Lumia 1520 that churns out the longer battery life. Specifically, it’s packing along a 3400 mAh battery, which gets us close to 1.5 with heavy usage. For having a smaller 3000 mAh battery, the G2 is able to pull in a day of heavy usage, which is pretty darn good for any super spec’d phone, but of course, it’s unable to match its rival.
Pricing is such a huge win for the Nokia Lumia 1520, to the point that people will really fall head over feet for its value for the buck. At $99.99 with a 2-year contract, it’s undoubtedly showing the LG G2 that it’s aggressive and not messing around. Heck, it’s even more amazing knowing that it’s outfitted with nearly the same cutting-edge hardware that’s under the hood of the mighty LG G2.
So why would anyone decide to go with the more expensive LG G2, especially when it’s being sold normally right now for $199.99 on-contract? The obvious reason is that it’s a well-balanced performer that hits the high marks in several departments, but out of everything, it’s comprehensive and enhanced software experience of the G2 that shows off its value.

Different categories. The G2 competes with the S4, HTC One, the Z1, Lumia 1020 and beats them, the 1520 competes with the Note 3 and loses to it. I won't deny it's great price point on contract though, compared to Sammy's tiger.

Amazon prices for the g2:
Sprint upgrade: $0.01
AT&T upgrade: $0.01
Verizon upgrade: $50
Best Buy price matches Amazon.
Also, if you signed up for phone choice freedom $50 best buy gift card back in february you basically get paid to upgrade if you have sprint or at&t.

Is funny how some time ago everyone (sony ericsson, Htc, samsung) joined windows phone trying to beat nokia and now nokia joins M$ in order to compete with everyone else... the only clear thing by now is that whoever works with M$ is not exactly the most successful brand in the market.

Dreamcast FTW!!!! on the 1520 photo.
My G2 should be here next week. I bought a 1520 for my wife but I am not concerned about the photo quality of either because I have a 1020 and a 808 PureView as backup.
It is good to see the photo quality go up on more devices on different OSes as choice is a win for the consumer.

I'm really surprised by the awful low light video recording on the G2, very sluggish. It seemed as well that it's autofocus was terribly slow compared with the 1520.

Must say I'm really impress with the LG G2 , but just a little sad for not having a memory card slot...I bought the one with 10GiG..not enough space, but great device...
