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!

Which phablet would you get?

Nokia Lumia 1520
HTC One max
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Sony Xperia Z Ultra

It's true buddy, it hurts. Everybody say hip hip hurrey......go Nokia. Nokia still not realizing that they have some fans power. Told you everyone that 1520 will lead this poll.

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!

Apple called, they told me to tell you they disagree with that statement.

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. ;-)

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Actually, it does if you have large hands.

No, it just sales more... They sell more Corvettes than Ferraris, so that theory doesn't work..

THEN . Why it didn't win even my friend who has a Note 3 voted for the Lumia 1520

73. tech2

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.

Just stick with your note 3, stay with Android, and shut up❕ You do realize how pathetic you sound,, thinking that you have to defend the note 3 over, and over.. Are your feelings hurt❔

That is a combination of all of the Samsung dislikers and Nokia fanboys on this site. That is quite obvious.
