20MP Nokia PureView Camera with Zeiss Optics
The main rear camera of the Nokia 1520 features a headline-grabbing 20MP, but the camera on the Nokia 1520 has far more then pixel count going for it. The image sensor is back-side illuminated and is 1/2.5", which is larger than typical smartphone cameras. This means that the individual 20 Million photosites on the 1520's image sensor are no smaller than the photosites on most smartphone cameras. In front of the image sensor is an impressive 6-element, 26mm equivalent, f/2.4 lens with Zeiss Optics, further making sure all 20MPs don't go to waste. The image sensor is also slightly larger then the lens circle which allows for both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios to capture as much of the lens's image circle as is possible, both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios capture about 19MP of entire 20MP sensor.

The Nokia 1520's camera also features optical image stabilization, which allows the camera to use slower shutter speeds and gather more light without adding motion blur from shaky hands. And if you need even more light the 1520's dual LED flash will produce great looking results for enhanced pictures in lower light conditions. The front of the 1520 also features a 1.2MP front facing camera for video chatting or capturing more candid photographs. The PureView camera can capture images in JPEG or RAW in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios. It can also record 1080p HD video at 30 fps with up to a 3x digital zoom.
PureView Sampling and High Resolution Zoom
The Nokia 1520 lets you save full resolution JPEG or RAW photographs if you desire maximum quality, and is also able to downsample the full 20MP to ultra-sharp 5MP photos for easier sharing with social networks or email. The downsampled 5MP photos can be saved simultaneously with the full resolution ones, or you can just save the 5MP photos to save space on your phone. The ultra high resolution image sensor also allows for a high quality digital zoom, as a 5MP photo at 2x zoom is still capturing the full 5MP center of the 20MP image sensor.
Full Manual Control with Nokia Pro Camera
Complimenting the 1520's high end camera is the Nokia Pro Camera app. When using Nokia Pro Camera you have easy access to manual controls like ISO, Shutter Speed, White Balance, Exposure Compensation, and Manual Focus. You can edit all of these settings manually or set some to automatic and choose which ones you want to edit. White balance modes include cloudy, incandescent, fluorescent, daylight, and automatic; and ISO selection includes ISO 100, ISO 200, ISO 400, ISO 1600, ISO 3200, ISO 4000, as well as automatic. Other Nokia Camera Apps are included like the Panorama app for stitching together panoramic photos, Cinemagraph for creating sharable movie-like animated images from several photographs, and more.
GSM / LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

        Comments about Lumia 1520 RM-938 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Yellow):

        I'm a fan of the Lumia 1020 (AT&T). Nokia (Microsoft) has done a fantastic job at building a functional, useful, fast, fluid interface. The Lumia apps (Camera, Panorama, Creative Studio) really differentiate the device from other models, including their own. The camera is absolutely fantastic. In the end I discovered the screen could be bigger for my taste, I don't do the camera justice, and the battery could last longer.Enter the Lumia 1520. To be fair I almost bought the 1520 the first time around instead of the 1020, but opted for the smaller device with the awesome camera at the time. The 1520's experience is almost identical to the 1020, so there was no learning curve, all of the Lumia apps are there, the interface is the same, and the Microsoft LiveID integration is phenomenal - it was synching two phones as if they were one, including texts, pretty cool. I'm enjoying the SensorCore enhancements on the 1520, it keeps track of my steps without putting a dent into the battery. Speaking of battery, I get about two days of heavy use. It's really hard to kill the device in one day. The camera is a step back, but I have to be honest with myself, it's also so good that I can't tell the difference between the two phones.This is an unlocked phone with no carrier integration. I find that the icing on the cake. This particular model works on AT&T and T-Mobile with LTE bands intact. Insert your SIM and enjoy. Since this is not a carrier-branded phone, I got 32GB & Qi Wireless Charging (RM-938) instead of 16GB & No Wireless Charging (RM-940) .. and paid $ less for this phone. Win/Win.

        Comments about Lumia 1520 RM-938 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black):

        I was a long time iPhone power user and I was ready to start breaking myself from Apple ecosystem. As someone who relies heavily on the capabilities of their device, I am very happy with this purchase! It is a powerful device, takes great pictures, and Windows Phone 8.1 is fantastic! This is an unlocked phone. For some reason it looks like it was set up for the Mexican market. I had to switch the regional setting to US/Pacific after i got the device. No big deal. I haven't had a tough time replacing almost all of the apps that I depend on that are outside of the basics. For instance, I don't have a replacement for both iBank and OliveTree Bible Reader. Outside of those two apps I never look back at my iPhone for anything. Hope this helps people trying to pick a device. Oh yeah and the screen is large! You get used to it in a week. Onlookers don't get used to it that quickly. You also have to get used to holding a device with buttons on the side. I kept turning on the camera by mistake for a while. Anyway it has been a couple weeks and I still love the device. Only thing that I would tell someone new to non-iPhones is that you will want to invest in a microSD card that has a fast data transfer rate. When you take pictures as large as the pics this phone's camera takes, it is annoying to have to wait for the images to get saved to the card. That is all I have to say.

              Worked great with AT&T including Qi charging. It is a large phone that makes it hard to go back to a smaller one. Great responsiveness, and screen resolution is great. The camera/video is just what I wanted in a smartphone.

              I'll admit I was a bit worried this phone would be too big.
              It took me all of one day to forget that!
              Works perfectly on t-mobile and has already updated to wp8.1 cyan.
              Cortina is great on 8.1 and this phone has a great screen and blazing fast speed.
              Super happy with this phone!

              Comments about Lumia 1520 RM-938 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Yellow):

              Luv this phone (Lumia 1520)... Had it about 3 weeks now and everything works fine the only problem I found is the micro SD card slot is very hard to open and once open appears to be very loose. Would be nice to get some form of compensation but I will live with it as I don't want the hassle of returns/shipping plus I may get one with an even greater defect. I live in Toronto Canada.. shipping was great, product arrived within specified time period... Customer service was also GR8. I will recommend B&H to every and anyone who is looking for reasonable priced products.

                    It's a big phone, but it's not too big. It fits in my pants pocket fine, and I only really think about its size when I put it up to my head. In the hand, when reading, it's great. The screen is gorgeous, even in direct sun. And an unexpected bonus: big screen means bigger buttons for typing, etc. Wireless charging is also great in conjunction with the strong battery. I've not yet come close to draining it. Make sure you get the Square Trade plan for peace of mind. My Nokia 920 bricked a month out of the 1-year manufacturer warranty. It was an unrepairable problem with the power chip, according to Nokia's recommended repair service.

                      I purchased this to upgrade from the L920 so I am already familiar with WP. This phone took a little getting used to with its size, but now I wouldn't want anything else. Worked perfectly out of the box (wireless charging, micro-sd, t-mobile, and att sims tested no messing with the settings required). This thing is super fast and that screen is amazing. I'd heard the battery life is good on this and that is definitely true for me. With fairly heavy use I'm getting almost 2 days before I need a recharge.
                      I think others have mentioned it comes with spanish as the default language when you begin set up, but that can be changed very early in the process and wasn't an issue for me.
                      I couldn't be much happier with the phone.

                            I purchased this phone about 1 month ago and am using it with the AT&T network.

                            The phone is excellent. Well made, works flawlessly, and does everything I would want it to. The screen is flat out awesome and the battery is unbelievable (I can go about 2-1/2 to 3 days between charges). And extremely fast performance.

                            Windows Phone 8.1 is the OS it is running and that has been extremely good so far. It is fast and has some many neat features, it would difficult at best to list them here.

                            I can think of only one minor cons to the phone:

                            It is a very large phone. When holding it up to your head like a normal phone, it can feel a bit awkward. It does take some getting used to.

                            P.S. -> I tried to delete some of the wording in the CONS area, but I could not get that to go away. The only thing I was meaning to keep there was that it is a little awkward to hold.

                            20 mbpix camera takes great pics and videos, lot's of storage at 32 GB + SD card, great CPU speed, generous 2 GB of RAM - no compromises. Kids line up to play Plants vs. Zombies on it. Huge 6" screen is perfect for that kind of games. Battery life is fantastic - can go two-three days without a charge. If I go easy on maps, video and games use then can stretch it for a couple more days. Office 365 works great on it. I actually use it to edit Word docs once in a while. Cortana speech recognition is actually very good. I speak with an accent but she recognizes me all the time. If you get unlocked phone like I did then make sure to get RM-938 if you plan to use it on T-Mobile network. RM-937 is sold all over the net but it will only work on ATT. LTE speed is faster than my home internet at 40 Mbps. The only problem is that LTE connection is somewhat spotty in CO on T-Mobile network. On the flip side: a little too big to carry but I always have a purse on my belt so this is not a big deal for me.

                                    Phone works perfectly. A great piece of tech. Would be 5 stars if only Microsoft would allow Bluetooth keyboard connectivity and allow OneDrive to maintain a synced copy/cache on the phone. Sad that Microsoft decisions affect my satisfaction with the phone. Even more sad is the fact that Microsoft would have to block out the source code for these basic features when they build the mobile version.

                                                    I previously used the LG Optimus 7, Lumia 900, and my last phone was the Lumia 920. This Lumia 1520 was a huge upgrade...pun intended.

                                                    The size of the device is something to get used to, but I'm pretty much there after a couple days. It's FAR bigger than my Lumia 920 was, and feels great in the hand (surprisingly so for its size). I use my phones for browsing, games, streaming videos, and of course texting/calling. The Lumia 1520 has made everything significantly faster - the Snapdragon 800 paired with Windows Phone 8.1 is just astounding. The only thing that felt slow on my 920 was browsing, and that is definitely a thing of the past now...this loads pages surprisingly quickly.

                                                    The only real downside I found was that the cellular connection isn't quite as good as it should be. I always had full bars with LTE at home with my 900 and 920 - with the 1520, I get few bars if it's in LTE and most of the time it's only in 3G. Not a big deal since I have WiFi at home - and I get a strong LTE connection at work, but I fear there may be some places where it won't be able to connect to LTE. Luckily I don't use my data much anyway, so it won't affect me much.
