Call Quality

Average. That’s basically what we can say about their call quality performance. Neither one really manages to impress us, which is a shame in a way considering their high-end reputation. Nonetheless, we’re able to get through phone calls without being terribly annoyed. Well, the earpiece volume of the G2 is noticeably stronger than the Lumia 1520.


Laying claim to the larger battery, we’re not shocked to find that it’s the Nokia Lumia 1520 that churns out the longer battery life. Specifically, it’s packing along a 3400 mAh battery, which gets us close to 1.5 with heavy usage. For having a smaller 3000 mAh battery, the G2 is able to pull in a day of heavy usage, which is pretty darn good for any super spec’d phone, but of course, it’s unable to match its rival.


Pricing is such a huge win for the Nokia Lumia 1520, to the point that people will really fall head over feet for its value for the buck. At $99.99 with a 2-year contract, it’s undoubtedly showing the LG G2 that it’s aggressive and not messing around. Heck, it’s even more amazing knowing that it’s outfitted with nearly the same cutting-edge hardware that’s under the hood of the mighty LG G2.

So why would anyone decide to go with the more expensive LG G2, especially when it’s being sold normally right now for $199.99 on-contract? The obvious reason is that it’s a well-balanced performer that hits the high marks in several departments, but out of everything, it’s comprehensive and enhanced software experience of the G2 that shows off its value.
