Description

With the Nokia Lumia Icon as a Verizon exclusive, our prayers for the Lumia 1520's awesome specs to appear in a more manageable body, have seemingly been answered. The handset is way more compact with its 5" Full HD display, but sports the same excellent 20 MP PureView camera with optical image stabilization, and not two or three, but four HAAC mics for noise cancellation, adding to the fast Snapdragon 800 chipset and 2 GB of RAM, making it one of the best Windows Phones a two-year contract can buy.
