Great way to kill of business partners Microsoft.

Nokia Lumias have Play To for broadcasting to Smart TVs. I don't remember if the microUSB is MHL, but it probably is. Look it up if it matters.

To me, the Lumia 1520 is the ultimate personal and business phone. Note 3 & 5S cannot compared to this Jedi Master :)

I beg to differ completely. Specs are great, but when it comes down to it Note 3 simply can't be touched.

only thing note have on it is a stylus....it is beat in every field to having real colors to having a bigger battery, to using same chip and we all know Microsoft os is very light so using the same chip that keep note 3 from lagging on a phone that do not lag will only give this phone a performance boost only windows phones can have

the note 3 doesn't lag. the note 3 is smooth and the lumia 1520 is going to be smooth as well so what do you expect? Touchscreen on the lumia to speed up by x100? They're both great devices.

Well 5s is no where in the list....One max only competes in design and fingerprint scanner....ZU lacks in camera, more like a tablet...note 3 competes due to s pen features with android ecosystem...otherwise the camera, battery, speaker, radio, screen size, wireless charging features makes note 3 inferior Note3 has samsung tag of fame....fame is not long, like case with famous celebrities ....someone always gets better....keep eyes open
