Introduction

Not all smartphones are meant to make you happy. And even though technology nowadays intends to make you so, not all are able to offer that happiness.

However, with the new Nokia Lumia 1520, that happiness could increase two-fold as the device has the capability of becoming one of the most sought after Nokia devices of all time.

The device, in many ways, is a landmark smartphone to have ever been released under the Windows Phone banner. Apparently, the device has the capability to compete against the likes of iPhone 5s and Nexus 5. The device offers a bright and sensitive display that's matched by its great picture support and super fast UI. However, it is a bit on the heavier side which could make the difference for most users usually looking toward a slim device.

The Lumia 1520 is also the largest Windows Phone by a long shot with its huge 6-inch screen, but should you consider buying one yourself? Let's have a closer look.

Nokia Lumia 1520: Design and Display

The first thing that you will notice here is that the device is huge. And maybe you won't notice its hugeness (you need to see it to believe it) from photos. But believe us when we tell you that its a huge device.

However, keeping aside its hugeness factor, the device is made up of high quality plastic that will add to the device's overall elegance. While the device is not exactly thick (8.7mm), its tallness and weight quotient can be a problem for users willing to invest in the device.

Also, due to its heaviness and largeness, the phone, as expected, is something that will require both your hands to make full use of it. Of course, you can use the device with only one of your hands, but then there will be instances that will eventually make you use the device with both your hands. But then again, a phone with that big a size will anyway require you to use both your hands when trying out different applications and features via the phone.

Theoretically speaking, a 1920 x 1080 resolution on a 6-inch screen offers a bit more than 3670 pixels per inch (ppi), which is quite sharp to make sure that text, videos and photos look detailed. And although the device's size makes the Lumia 1520 a tough device to carry around, it's impressive for games, videos and web browsing.

As far as physical details are concerned, the device comes with a camera shutter button alongside the usual volume and power buttons. Apart from that, there's the impressive presence of 32GB built-in memory that can be further expanded to another 64 GB. Also, its IPS-based LCD screen is quite sharp, rich and responsive to say the least.

Apart from the ability to wirelessly charge itself, the Lumia 1520 also offers 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC, alongside 4G LTE.
