Notebookcheck
17 January 2014
  • Summary: 6 inches made in Finland. Big screen, Full HD resolution, a powerful Snapdragon 800, and a high-resolution camera. Nokia has finally arrived in the premium division, and presents its first phablet based on Windows Phone 8 called Lumia 1520. Read how it fares against the Android competition in our test report.
  • Pros: Exceptional telephone acoustics, Good screen, Excellent build, Decent battery runtimes, Good camera featuring DNG format support, Extensive additional software, Very good localization, Microsoft Office, Micro SD slot, LTE cat. 4, ac Wi-Fi, The screen looks good even without AMOLED, and is also convincing in sunlight. Besides that, the phablet's build quality is exceptional.
  • Cons: USB 2.0 only, No video out, Adverse one-handed usage, Stylus inputting not possible, A USB 3.0 port would have been welcome, or at least an MHL-capable port. We also missed the option of stylus inputting.

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: In Depth

Recombu
31 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Before we gush anymore, the size will be the most prohibitive issue for some users, but then there are plenty of other handsets, including other Lumias, which can offer just as premium a user experience in a smaller, more universally manageable package. As a cameraphone, it outclasses all the most notable rivals: the HTC One Max, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
  • Pros: Fantastic screen, Beautiful design, Incredible battery life
  • Cons: Too big for some hands/pockets, Windows Phone OS still lacks apps

  • Excerpt: While Android smartphones have been breaking the 5 inch and even 6 inch screen-size barriers for some time, Windows Phone devices have been stuck at the 4.5 inch mark. Not any more! The Nokia Lumia 1520 offers a 6 inch full HD screen, a 20 MP PureView camera and an ultrafast Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor too.

  • Excerpt: With Android phone/tablet hybrids, or phablets, everywhere you look, it was only a matter of time before Nokia launched its own Windows Phone model. The Lumia 1520 was the 14th Lumia phone since the launch of the Lumia 800 towards the end of 2011, showing the then team of Nokia and Microsoft, and now just Microsoft, will stop at nothing to fill every possible segment with a new handset.

A fantastic phablet: Nokia’s Lumia 1520 reviewed

Gadget Guy
11 February 2014
  • Summary: We’ll happily give credit where credit is due, and it is certainly due here, as the Nokia Lumia 1520 isn’t just an excellent first phablet for Nokia, it’s an outstanding handset for the Finnish brand in general.
  • Pros: Fast system performance, Excellent 4G, Solid battery life, with as much as two days going into a third day, Fantastic camera, Expandable memory, Bigger screen size allows for an extra column of icons, which means you can generally fit all the icons you need on one page, Wireless charging built in, though you will need the Nokia wireless charger
  • Cons: A little on the heavy side, Takes nanoSIM, so previous Windows Phone users will need to get a new SIM card

Nokia Lumia 1520 review

Pocket Lint
18 November 2013
  • Conclusion: The Nokia Lumia 1520 has to be the best Windows Phone 8 handset on the market. It's certainly the best Lumia we've used to date. That's not just thanks to the reassuringly high quality build, but also thanks to the new Black OS. The OS version we've seen is missing one or two components, but it's still a definite step forward. Accompany that with an ever growing selection of apps, and the first Nokia phablet is a genuinely capable mobile OS.
  • Pros: Excellent build, fantastic camera and options, beautiful screen, good battery life, Glance screen, Black OS will bring plenty more with it - including raw file capture from camera
  • Cons: Switching connections on and off is a pain, might be too big for some, could be missing a few apps you want

Expert Review

smartweb.de
23 November 2014
  • Summary: War das Lumia 1020 nur eine mit einer extrem hochauflösenden Kamera ausgestattete Neuauflage des Lumia 925, zeigt sich das mehr als 16 cm große Nokia Lumia 1520 als eine echte Weiterentwicklung. Das Design und das Betriebssystem haben sich zwar wenig verändert, dafür stecken im Smartlet aus Finnland ein sehr viel stärkerer Prozessor, ein leistungsfähigerer Akku, ein LTE Cat4 Modul und so manches mehr. Somit ist das Lumia 1520 vor allem eines: sehr schnell.
  • Pros: großes, scharfes Display, starker Prozessor, langlebiger Akku, leistungsstarke Kamera mit Zeiss-Optik, kabellos aufladbar
  • Cons: mit einer Hand kaum bedienbar, hoher Einstiegspreis

18 November 2014
  • Summary: Det har tatt noen år, men med Lumia 1520 har Nokia langt på vei levert Windows-telefonen vi har ventet på. Denne gule, sjarmerende klossen er toppspesifisert på alle fronter, og står ikke i forlegenhet for noen av sine konkurrenter. Her får du en av de aller beste mobilskjermene vi noen gang har sett. Skjermen er diger, har full-HD-oppløsning, og viktigst av alt, et fabelaktig bilde.
  • Pros: Fantastisk skjerm, Lynrask, Velbygget, Imponerende kamera, God formatstøtte, Brukervennlig operativsystem, Laaaang batteritid, Minnekortstøtte, Trådløs lading, Knallgod navigasjon
  • Cons: Stadig noe begrenset apputvalg, Ikke HDMI-støtte, Windows Phone trenger varslingssenter, Svak fleroppgavekjøring

TEST: Nokia Lumia 1520

mobizmag.no
8 October 2014
  • Conclusion: Vi har kanskje ikke helt klart å skjule vår begeistring for denne telefonen, så det er vel ikke så mye mer å si; dette er den letteste sekseren vi har kastet hittil i år. Hvis du liker Microsoft sin plattform så er dette den beste telefonen med fliser på. Prisen ligger på rundt kroner 4500, og telefonen kommer i flere farger; sort, hvit, rød og gul. Vi er ikke i tvil, gult er kult!
  • Pros: Meget bra kamera, Veldig god skjerm, Fantastisk talekvalitet
  • Cons: Utnytter ikke skjermstørrelsen optimalt, De fysiske knappene er litt for lette å trykke på
