Review: Nokia Lumia 1520 for AT&T
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is an excellent device, despite its mammoth proportions. It is one of the biggest handsets on the market, and that is both a blessing and a curse. It means you have a great big screen that can fit more content, but it also means you need two hands more often than not to interact with the phone.
The display, signal performance, and battery life are all excellent, as is the design and build quality of the 1520. It was surprisingly weak in the call quality department, though. It's nice to have extras such as NFC and wireless charging, but access to the battery would have been nice.
The Windows Phone operating system really comes to life on the 1520's large screen, and the expanded real estate on the Start screen makes a huge difference in how users customize their own experience. Nokia's additions to the operating system, through a multitude of its own apps, really help round out the experience.
