1520 is better for me because of :
Better screen
Better camera
Better build quality
Better design
Better navigation
Better audio capture
Wireless charging
Longer battery life
And way better exclusive apps like Refocus,Cinemagraph, City Lens etc!

Then why don't you sell your iphone and buy Nokia 1520.

By the way the whole list that you wrote is WRONG.

Better screen? Did you have ever seen and compared videos on both screens? I am 100% sure you didnt, or if you did then may be you were without specticles and have a blured vision during watching on note 3... better camera? Both cameras are very nearly close despite a big difference is mega pixel count... better design? Well nokia's design is an obvious design as compared to premium looks of note 3... better navigation? well in this sector google is the best but nokia is not far behind either... about wireless charging and longer bettery well I dont have anything to disagree, your point is valid here... about apps? well google store is light years ahead of WP in this sector

LOL dude here you go!

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Nokia-Lumia-1520-assertive-display-tech-shines-vs-iPhone-5-vs-Xperia-Z-Ultra-vs-Note-3_id48818

have you not read the review that when the sun goes down the 1520 thrives! and that's not just a close difference! Don't forget that the 1520 has loseless zoom as well as capturing RAW photo's!

Obvious that you mention Google being better at maps because of Google Maps! but the truth is Nokia Here maps has way better offline maps which is the most important feature!

That was because the adapt display on the Note was turned off.

Trust me, even if Nokia is better visible outside, Note 3 is still more than adequate in that regard.

In the all important display merits, the Note 3 is outstanding.

Here's a true expert analysis for you:

Note 3 hands down. Only phone in the market besides the note 2 itself that utilizes the screen size with great features and cutting edge tech. And its much much more comfortable, even for a phone if its size.

Nokia has no chace here.
Note 3 is best in everything. Black version of Note 3 is much more beautifull that the Nokia brick. And S-Pen just nail the 1520's coffin.

While the note 3 is the first ss with a good design it's by no means premium. The plastic rim coated chrome is super cheap.

I've been very underwhelmed with my Note 3. Compared to my Note 2 the camera doesn't seem like much of an upgrade and the reception for wifi and cell signal has been actually much, much worse than my Note 2 (the constant zero bars in a rural setting and "You are disconnected" followed by "Connected to wifi...." notifications make web browsing a nightmare.) I'm reluctantly returning it and trying a different phablet, hopefully one that has better reception.
