Nokia Lumia 1520 vs Lumia 1320 vs Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3: specs comparison

Nokia Lumia 1520 vs Lumia 1320 vs Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3: specs comparison
Today is phablet day for Nokia, as the company has announced its very first oversized smartphone - the Lumia 1520! Correction: The company has announced its first two phablets - the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320, with the latter keeping the same massive 6" screen diagonal, but introducing a bunch of compromises specs-wise.

We've already compared the specs of the premium Lumia 1520 to some of its elite competition in the Galaxy Note 3 and HTC One max, but now that we're taking a look at the more affordable segments of the market with the Lumia 1320, who should we add to this comparison that's both big and somewhat on the cheaper side? Of course, the gargantuan Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 fits the bill perfectly, being the upper-mid range phablet that it is. Let's take a look at how these big boys compare:
