Nokia Lumia 1520 size comparison: just how large is it?

Nokia Lumia 1520 size comparison: just how large is it?
The Nokia Lumia 1520 has the largest display of all recent phablets. Its 6-inch display is slightly larger than the 5.9” screen on the HTC One max and it dwarfs the 5.7” Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The Lumia 1520 is also the only phablet that comes in colors like yellow and red in addition to the more traditional black and white.

However one question remains: just how big is it really? The Lumia 1520 is the largest phablet out there, it is much wider than the Galaxy Note 3 and the One max which would definitely make it extremely hard to use it single handedly. It’s almost as large as a small tablet! You have to make some size compromises if you want such a large display after all.

On a more positive note, the Lumia 1520 is a fairly thin device at 8.7mm, thinner than the HTC One max, but just a bit larger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

To fully understand how large the Lumia 1520 really is and how it compares against other phablets and the current flagships, take a look below.

Really? You forgot ZU and you compare it with Z1?

5. Amir1 unregistered

i think the phone arena treat the Z Ultra as a mini tablet with phone so that's why they don't compare it with them. but putting the Z1 with theem is a bit wrong.

They must've mistakenly put z1 instead of ZU. That's the only plausible explanation.

And the Oppo N1 too? On a side note, look how tiny the iPhone is in comparison.

We've now added the gigantic Z1.

Sounds a bit uncomfortable, but then you get a great camera, a huge battery, a top-end screen and all the goodies. It can put up a good fight against the Note III, and probably will.

Those phablets out there in the comparison are flagships not mid-range.

That's in the mini tablet category with the Xperia Z Ultra. This is a size comparison between phablets and phones.

Interesting how visually, the Note 3 screen with the transparent status bar barely looks smaller. As for the Lumia..wonderful specs, great build but I just don't see this thing selling. Its just a bit too large and too expensive. Also, the software is not able to take advantage of the hardware..it still does basically the same thing as any cheap WP8 device and nothing more except for doing it on the larger screen, and doing it faster. Unlike the Note 3, this device cant replace a pc. For the price, one can get a Lumia 920 and a full W8 Bay Trail tablet

Dang, Note 3 is the smallest among the phablets, Oh, and most powerful too :P

The one good thing about the 920 and 1020 being super bricks is that when Nokia releases a super saiyan 3 level omega brick like this, people become desensitized to the brickness of it all. When I watched the promo video the size looked fine for a phablet. But now that I have seen this comparison....omg that thing is HUGE...lol I don't know which one is worst between this, the ultra, or the max. They are all terrible and it is obvious they don't know why the Note is a success.
