Nokia’s first foray into the phablet market is just one of the many firsts that the Nokia Lumia 1520 brings to the table.

A Nokia smartphone with a price tag that runs to the tune of 46,999 INR and runs only on nano - SIM; the creator of the Lumia 1520 sounds suspiciously like an Apple fanboy, but is the latest slab from the Nokia stable enough to sway the existing fanboys? Here’s a closer look at all that the Lumia 1520 delivers:

 

1. Design

Sticking to its standard premium polycarbonate recipe and with a mammoth display that boasts of a 1920 x 1080 IPS LCD with Gorilla Glass 2 and Nokia's famed ClearBlack polarizer, the Lumia 1520 has made it large and not just metaphorically. While the gamers and movie enthusiasts are already sold on the phablet, this Lumia is best enjoyed if you have hands the size of Hulk - The six inch display means that it can’t fit comfortably in one hand and your jean pockets aren’t going to love you for it either.

2. Software

Easing the scales a bit in the OS war, the Lumia 1520 comes factory built with the new Windows Update 3, which among other things, boasts of a wider range of compatible apps. Windows Phone shippers, say hello to Temple Run goodness.

3. Hardware

Under the hood, the phablet is kept running smoothly with the premium Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC (system-on-a-chip), which consists of a Krait 400 CPU running at 2.2GHz and Adreno 330 graphics processor with the standard LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth modules that is a must for any smartphone worth its salt.

4. Camera

While the Lumia 1520 won’t be giving the 1020 users sleepless nights anytime soon, it does manage to pack in a mean 20 MP Pureview lens that makes low light photos a delight.

5. Battery life

Unlike the normal battery guzzlers, Nokia doesn’t disappoint in the battery stakes; the 3400 mAh battery along with the Snapdragon 800 processor's optimization keeps your phone juiced for over a day with 3G and WiFi usage.

As one reviewer put it, “If you want a Windows Phone with a supersized high-resolution screen, this is currently the only game in town. Nokia is the only manufacturer truly committed to Windows Phone, and with its acquisition by Microsoft now complete, it's unlikely that any other company will bother developing such a device.”
