Nokia Lumia 1520: all new features
The Nokia Lumia 1520 has finally broken cover and it is Nokia’s first phablet, a device with a gigantic 6-inch display, an ambitious 20MP PureView camera and top of the line Snapdragon 800 system chip.

The Lumia 1520 throws in a few neat features like wireless charging, awesome audio recording and advanced camera features, and if you are not scared of its size and AT&T exclusivity in the United States, those would definitely sound alluring. However they are not all that's new in Nokia's first effort in phablets.

Its a nice phone but being on AT&T only....SMH Nokia needs to learn that if they ever want to not keep getting crushed by Samsung, Apple, LG, etc then they need to put their flagship phones on all of the Big 4 Carriers.

Yeah, I think this is a huge mistake. What good is Nokia doing by limiting its reach? And with this being their first phablet I think they're handicapping themselves in terms of growth. Man, that's tough.

Obviously, they havent learned from the G Pro and the iPhone 3G and 3GS that Nokia shouldn't be exclusive to AT&T. I have AT&T and I know that it shouldn't be this way. I will still upgrade to the Note 3, but the Nokia 1520 and 1320 are worth thinking about for those that want to try a Windows Phone

This is a beautiful device... Its too bad the Windows Phone app store is a disgrace. It looks like MS/Nokia has got the hardware down to a science, if they could only get developers to create apps for them.

P.A posted the wrong second picture. The pictures shows galaxy S4 and htc one, but in the comment it says Lumia 1520 is much bigger than note 3 and HTC one MAX. It is not much bigger than note 3 and one max, but it is much bigger than s4 and htc one. Infact, it is smaller than one MAX by volume.

Awesome phone but the fact that windows app store is trash and then only catering to at&t customers will for sure make Nokia die a long, slow death. #RIPNOKIA

So tired of exclusive. How is any company going to compete & reach sales?

phonearena seems to think that nokia has finally caught up with android and... (drum roll) IPHONE. what a joke. apple is years behind in software (ios doesn't have a file manager and bluetooth file transfer. so don't try to convince me) and hardware.

No need for file manager Apple does everything on its own And file transfer is a joke You can still get it at app store
