Summary: The Nokia Lumia 1320’s the best value big-screened Windows Phone around, no question - and unless you really need a top notch camera, it’s better value for money than the 1520 too. But it’s not the best best value smartphone around, not when Google’s 4G-infused Nexus 5 goes for the same amount on contract, packs a sharper screen and many, many more apps.
Conclusion: For AED 1299, the Nokia Lumia 1320 delivers big screen functionality at a decent price. It may not perform as well as the 1520, but keep in mind that you’re paying about half the price. Plus Nokia knows how utilize the hardware making it seem like its performance is at par with its more premium cousins. Windows Phone users looking for a bigger phone screen on a budget should definitely get the Nokia Lumia 1320.
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 1320 is one of the first attempts by Nokia to go into the field of phablet, along with the Lumia in 1520, but while the latter offers a very technical performance, the Lumia does not do so in 1320 offering a medium quality hardware, perhaps not enough to push a phone of this size. Even the display, although of good quality, is only HD, which is another minus. On the plus side stands instead LTE support, the high autonomy, the new operating system.
Pros: Dual camera, NFC module, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Corning Gorilla Glass, Full HD movies, 4G LTE technology.
Cons: Display resolution is not adequate to greatness, Lack of RAM, Dual-Core Processor, No NFC module.
Excerpt: An affordable Windows Phone 8 phablet with an enormous 6 inch screen, but a modest price tag. The Lumia 1320 is a well-built device with a good featureset and plenty of bundled software. Only the large bulk and weight distract from its appeal.
Summary: A fresh phablet. Pursuing the Lumia 1520, Nokia sends another 6-inch phablet featuring HD resolution and Windows Phone 8 into the race, called the Lumia 1320. Its power and configuration are no match for the premium model, but it is nevertheless a strong smartphone.
Pros: High-quality build, Good screen, Very good localization, Wireless module w/ LTE support, Decent camera, Outstanding phone sound, Long battery runtimes, Microsoft Office pre-loaded, The Lumia 1320's bright screen that remains legible even in direct sunlight. The phablet's excellent build.
Cons: Screen's resolution of only 1280 x 720 pixels, Small internal storage, Difficult to use with one hand only, Little performance reserves, Limited offer of apps in the Windows Store by comparison, The Lumia 1320 would be better prepared for the future with a slightly stronger SoC. The performance is easily enough for current games and apps, but there are only little performance reserves.
Excerpt: Nokia's most recent flagships have done little but impress, but can they still balance a great experience in a more affordable package? The Nokia Lumia 1320 helps us decide. If the large-screened Nokia Lumia 1520 is a phablet take on the Lumia 1020 , the 1320 is a phablet take on the Lumia 625 and it shares many of the same values too: a simple, clean design, affordable 4G and a big screen, very big in this instance.
Pros: Good screen, Fantastic battery life, Strong feature set
Cons: Weak camera, Hardware lacks longevity, Heavy
Conclusion: Nokia is obviously hoping the Lumia 1320 will hit the ground running and that hope isn't unfounded, considering the loud bang the 1520 produced and the solid record of the Lumia 520 and Lumia 620. Providing all the necessities at a reasonable price is a Nokia staple in the Windows Phone midrange. It's been a winning formula for the Finns in smartphones, so no obvious reason why it won't work in phablets as well. Or, maybe there're some after all?
Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, Quad-band 3G with 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support, Penta-band LTE Cat4 support, 150Mbps downlink, 50Mbps uplink, 6.0" 16M-color ClearBlack IPS CLD capacitive touchscreen of 1280 x 720 pixels; Corning Gorilla Glass 3; Nokia Glance screen, 5MP sensor, 1/4" sensor size, LED flash, 1080p@30fps video recording, VGA front-facing camera, Windows Phone 8 GDR3 OS with Nokia Black, 1.7GHz dual-core Krait CPU, Adreno 305 GPU, Qualcomm Sn...
Cons: Non-user-replaceable battery, No system-wide file manager, No lockscreen shortcuts, No NFC
Conclusion: As much as one may try to twist facts, there's no denying – the Nokia Lumia 1320 is a mid-range offering. On a positive note, the 6-inch phablet is sturdily-crafted and has a polished look. It presents well, as the internals are capable enough to provide an adequate user experience without nasty hang times or stutters. Lastly, both battery and call quality, while not top notch for certain, still leave little to desire.
Pros: Great battery life, Call quality is top notch, Video capture is decent, The dual-core chip handles the 1320 just fine-tuning
Cons: It's seriously heavy, This is a very large device, even in its class, Both the earpiece and speaker grill are easily muffled, The camera offers middling performance
