Nokia Lumia 1520
The phone which made me to switch back to "Nokia" and "Windows Phone" from Android
This review is coming from an expert phone user and have previous owned 3 high end Android phones and was well settled in the "Google" eco-system.
Yet, when Nokia bought out the Lumia 1520, it had specs which is not only appeasing but a deal-breaker for those who want to give the "Windows Phones" a try yet are not so-happy with the specs offered previously.
Now, I have a stealer of a phone, which not only carried the gorgeous 6" screen with brilliant color saturation and viewing angles, but has the latest Qual 800 Quad-Core and 2Gigs of RAM, along with 32Gigs on internal storage, expandable upto 64Gigs + Wireless Charging + the masterpiece of a 20MP rear camera.
Its been exactly 15 days since I've had the phone with me and here is the list of how it fared with me:
1) Big size - sometimes a bit cumbersome to hold and handle using one hand, yet that screen though... :)
2) Batttery Backup - 3400mAh baby! Last thursday I clocked an absurd 1d 23hrs of battery backup with still 4 hours (10%) of juice to go with.
3) Windows OS - Yes, yes, the obvious rant of "not too many app" and the not-so-refined *cough-android-cough* like ease of use and mutual-app integration, yet, i will give it a pass as I know the quirks of it. But those specs though.... :)
4) Camera - I don't even want to talk about it as there are gazillions of favorable reviews on the internet. Its just second to the 41mp on L1020.
5) Display - Gorgeous, eye catching, masterpiece. Excellent legibility under bright sunlight. Eye catcher, head turner
6) Processor/RAM - Threw Asphalt 8 (Airborne) at it and it played it off smoothly... No hiccups...
But but but ---- Recently the display has popped out a dead pixel. Just one. But a pesky one. Will be taking it for service shortly. But I feel its an isolated incident.
Size - Bulky and matte finish is a bit slippery. You gotta be careful.
Display Glass - Why Nokia? Why a compromise here? Why not Gorilla Glass 3? Why 2? Not FAIR!
That's all folks,

Awesome phone with amazing specs
I never believed in high specs as I always thought that they are just gimmick. When I heard about Nokia Lumia 1520 I thought it will be huge in hands and doesn't fit me. But when I just went to try it out at Nokia priority center, I became speechless. I purchased it and I am very happy. The screen is just beautiful and best I have seen on a smartphone. The performance of the phone is very fast with a 2.2 GHz Quadcore Snapdragon 800 processor , No lag at all which I saw in most Android devices like Samsung Note 3. I appreciate Nokia for making such a master piece. Another great feature is its 20 MP Pureview camera. The photos will make you lost in its superb quality.

Lumia 1520 : The best Windows Phone ever...
Ever since Nokia released Windows Phone, I have been using their flagship devices from Lumia 800 to Lumia 920. Though hardware specs are never an issue for the fluidity of Windows Phone, Lumia 1520 sets bar way high for performance. With Quad Core and 2GB Ram all the games and apps are so fluid. There was never ever a instance of freeze. To comment to Battery life, one has to use the phone to believe it. outstanding
Summary : Lumia 1520 and Windows Phone. Perfect and Made for Each other

Although it's a good phone to use but Nokia should also consider size of the pockets of men's trousers. Very difficult to fit in pocket.
Hope Nokia comes out with 5" Lumia phone to fit in easily.
