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.

            I was skeptical about upgrading from 920 to 1520 because of the size. I am used to it now and can sure say that it is indeed a great phone. The RM-938 version does two things that the ATT version doesn't: charge with the qi pad that came with my 920 and have twice as much internal storage (32gb) as the ATT one.I am happy with the product.

            This phone works perfectly on ATT, plus has a number of benefits over the version of the 1520 that ATT sells:1) Cheaper2) Qi wireless charging built in3) 32GB of memory compared to 16Everything works with no real hoops to jump through. Just put in the SIM card and have LTE service and Internet Sharing works (if your plan supports it)

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

              I can't add anything much of value over what has already been said here. Running the 1520.3 on the T-Mobile network with full LTE and everything about this phone has exceeded my already high expectations. Camera, display, performance, audio quality, it's all there and this is a true flagship. Love this device.The size is a total non-issue. It fits in my pocket fine even while driving and I got used to it within about 24 hours. A few times I've tried to one-hand it and couldn't, but who cares. The trade-off for the larger display is well worth it. I do wish the shell was interchangeable like the newer Lumia devices, but oh well. I got black which is timeless and the ability to change tile colors on the huge screen gets you most of the way there.

              A Great Windows Phone

              By Ash

              from Annapolis

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

              I have used the iPhone 6 plus and the Sony Xperia Z3 Dual sim, the top phones for IOS and Android with apps that can open and edit office files. The Nokia Lumia 1520 is by far a better device in handling office application. It act as an office tablet that allows you to work freely with the main office apps. It has a great Camera which is as good as that of the Z3. There are many free widows 8 apps, not as much as the iPhone has but all the essential apps are available free. The screen is great, larger than the iphone 6 plus and the Xperia Z3 and just as clear. The Audio and video apps are not as good as what you get with the 6plus or the Z3 but they are available, free, and useable.This has to be the best Windows Phone at present. I understand that Microsoft will be upgrading the phone operating system to Windows 10 in early 2015. The RM-938 is the unlocked phone version to get for the U.S. AT&T and T-Mobile.

                    Windows 8.1 is amazing. Its a big leap from Windows 8. Agreed WP is playing catch up, but is surely making some big leaps to do so. I personally got bored of iOS and wanted something new, so I decided to buy Lumia 920. The OS was not as matured so I switched to iPhone 4 and Blackberry as my secondary device. With WP8.1 releasing, a lot of issues were taken care of, so I decided to jump back to WP. I dont use a lot of apps, but whatever I use, there is an app available. If not, there are amazing third party apps (for YouTube) available. As for the phone itself, it screams high end quality, amazing display, brilliant camera and everlasting battery (moderate use will give me 2 days of battery).The size could be a little big, but I highly recommend to check out this phone in person. The footprint is not as big as you would think. Also, the AT&T version is a 16GB. The one sold at B&H is 32GB with Qi (wireless charger) built in. To add on, you can insert an external card to increase your storage :) I only wish that Nokia could include a stylus support for a phone this size. For me, this certainly is not a deal-breaker.

                      I had concerns about the size, but after a few days the size became the new normal. I would not want to go back to a smaller phone.I upgraded from an iPhone and Lumia 920. The long story short is that the 1520 is better in every possible way, but there are a few minor issues:When pushing the power button to wake up the device, there is a noticeable delay before the screen comes alive. I've never had a phone that has this delay. It is not a long delay, but a minor nuisance.Orientation changes are sometimes really slow. Turn the phone sideways to type out an email and you have to wait a few seconds before the screen rotates into landscape. Sometimes it doesn't rotate at all and you have to move the device back upright and try again. Again, a minor nuisance, but worth mentioning.On the plus side: The screen is unbeatable. The camera is amazing. Battery life is awesome.

                      Going from 920 to 1520 was the best thing I did. The phone is amazing and you will get used to the size right away. Even you will feel that you still need a bigger one. The purchase was so smooth along with the shipping all as advertised and I was so surprised when I received in less than a week. Keep it up B&H

                        Others have covered this phone well in their reviews, so I will mention something I feel should be considered when purchasing a phone of this size. Do you notice when you put a more "regular" size phone in your pocket that it more or less disappears? As in, you can forget it is there until the next time you need it? The Lumia 1520 will not disappear in your pocket, as its size will make itself known. It fits in my pockets quite well, please don't misinterpret, however its size/bulk feels ever-present. The positives for me greatly outweigh this constant presence, which are tied to its size: the screen's size makes browsing a dream, whereas previously I hated browsing on my smaller phones for more than a minute or two; the screen is wonderful for gaming; and the technology from the adaptive pixel adjustments for different lighting conditions to the clear black display just please me to no end. Something which irks me is that Windows Phone at this time does not have an option to call someone when you long-press on a text thread, nor does it have the option to text someone by long-pressing on an entry in the call history (though it does have automatic text reply if someone is calling you then and there). Also, a far minor quibble than the above, but you can't tap an individual text message to view it on its own. The above are things I took for granted on my 808 Pureview (which I keep around for its still-stellar camera), and hope that Microsoft will implement them some time soon. I love the word flow (swype-like) keyboard! I've missed this, as I am not a fan of tapping on touchscreens.Works fantastic on T-Mobile in the USA, though won't be able to do Tmo's wi-fi calling.

                        This phone delivers everything it supposed to and I couldn't be happier. Amazing screen, fast performance, great sound, and the battery lasts forever. For those people who think Windows platform is lacking in apps get over it already. They have the major ones...end of story. B&H was great delivering on schedule.

                          This is the first Windows OS phone I have ever used. It seems very easy since I have Win8 on my desktop. I'm not a gamer on a phone so I'm not rating that area. I think some of the apps are good. I don't like that you have to have MS account to update the apps and OS on the phone. I don't like some apps need location access to update. I notice there was no available cover to order and the one available by Nokia CP-623 is in the coming soon mode. Model phone sold was from 2013 which is a whole year later than year sold. Overall, I like the phablet.

                            This is indeed the 1520 RM-938 (Latin American version). It will work with AT&T or T-Mobile in the US and does have 32GB of storage onboard, with room for an expandable micro-SD card as well. The phone is excellent, although it is quite large. If you haven't seen one of these bad boys in real life yet, go to your local AT&T store and pick one up. It's best used with both hands, although you can make do with one at times. I have personally been keeping it in my back pocket, although it does fit in my front pocket in all my pants (although skinny jeans are a stretch). The screen is gorgeous and is perfect for watching anything. The battery is humongous and there is no way you'll run it down in one day. I'm routinely still at 60-70% full by the end of a full day on the go.

                            This is a BIG phone. Its 6" bright screen could serve as a small tablet substitute - hence the name PHABLET. There is no doubt that it will canibalize the sales of 7-8" tablets, since viewing movies and reading email are quite effortless. No need to squint the eyes :) It is a window phone and as such it has some glaring lack of some of the most popular apps for iOS and Android. However it DOES have all the essential apps that one would need to live a fruitful and connected life :) The Nokia supplied navigation, photo editing and publishing are excellent and provide very easy way to share your photos with everyone. WinPhone (WP) has seemless integration with MS office and make it very easy to edit distribute and communicate office docs. Music streaming is a bit less developed. @ does not have an app for it (yet?) itune and Google play are not integrated and the few apps that offer connection aren't that great (yet?). Last but not least is Cortana! This app is much better that iPhone Siri! If anyone saw the episode of TBBT whree Raj treats Siri like a woman - with Cortana he would have had much better convesation! :) This phone has a Qi charging built in (unlike the disabled one that AT&T sells) and it allows for uncluttering of the desktops. As I said this is a big phone and texting with onehand is difficult. However, it serves as a small tablet as well, so one need not carry two devices. All in all this is a great phone and unless one has a compeling reason to go with the other OSs I can't see why not reaching one's wallet and buying this excellent phone.

                            Has many good apps that keep me in touch with all I do. Finding a way to carried comfortably is a challenge. I would recommended and buy it again.

                                  I use this phone daily, and since it's unlocked I can use H2O as carrier. $ dollars per month with unlimited call/msg, so that shows how great this battery is. I have used many Android and my wife used apple stuff, but now both of us are in love with Win8.1 phones. Nokia 1520 or 1020 are both great choices. ..........

                                        To start, buying an unlocked phone. I am an AT&T customer that loyally waited for my 2 year contract to end in order to be eligible for an upgrade and not join the NEXT program. I went to AT&T to find out about upgrading and was told if I used my 2 year contract price my line service fee would go from $ to $ a month not including data ... WHAT ??? I have money to buy a phone and I am told by being loyal I have to pay more. I asked about buying the phone outright (more money than buying here at B&H) and the issue was the same. So, not wanting to pay a monthly payment for a cell phone on my families plan I started to look for an unlocked phone.I had been researching the Nokia 1520 and found that this model, the 1520.3 could be used on AT&T. I give tremendous thanks to B&H for supplying the carrier frequencies used and I was able to buy this phone "knowing" it would work on AT&T. Next, know that the AT&T phone is only 16GB and this phone is 32GB. Also, AT&T changed the wireless charging function to their own standard so they can sell you an AT&T wireless charging cover and charger unit.So the bottom line is, you can buy this phone with confidence that you can simply remove the AT&T SIM, plug it in the Nokia 1520, save money, ignore contracts, have more internal storage and gain Qi charging enabling the use of Nokia accessories. Regarding my departure from my iPhone ... if you use iMessage ... DISABLE IT IN YOUR SETTING BEFORE REMOVING IT FROM YOUR iPhone. If you do not, any person using an iPhone with iMessage that had previously sent you a text will not longer have their texts delivered to your phone. You must turn this off so your cell/SIM number removed from Apples active iMessage database. If you don't have access to the iPhone with the SIM in it, you must contact apple to have this performed on their end. So, you have a functioning Nokia 1520 ready to use and you can get text messages from iPhone users without falling prey to AT&T ... what about the phone itself ???I am a big user of One Note and other Microsoft Office products and I find this to be a major strength of this phone as it integrates seamlessly. Having multiple email accounts, the ability to pin each mailbox as an icon on my phones desktop is fantastic. I can see that I have x work emails and y personal emails on the same home screen !!! The Windows vs iOS transition has been a happy one for me, less a few apps I used on my iPhone which don't exist on Windows Phone. I survived without them before having a smartphone, and I have gained others by having a Windows platform. It's not better or worse, it's just different. Sound ... the audio quality is amazing to me vs the iPhone when playing through the speakers and i like the headphone jack placement much better. The music app is great and getting away from iTunes is refreshing. I can choose how my music is stored on the phone, meaning it can be saved to the SD card [ yeah expandable memory ] exclusively, making it easy to migrate to another phone down the line.Phone ... it's a phone and for calls, I find I am repeating myself less to my wife, so the clarity must be okay on the other end !!!Camera ... I think given we don't have viewfinders on cell phones, the size of the 1520 everybody likes to talk about is a major strength here. Composition is easier when you can see what you are shooting bigger !!! I could not be happier with the camera function and the ability to manipulate pics on the phone and save them as a file you can see in a file directory is great. Again I love this over my iPhone. While not the 1020, check out the pics the Red Bull photographers took with Nokia phones ... I can say for certain that while I am no professional photographer, I have taken some pretty amazing photos with this phone already. Another note the camera placement on the back is nice as when going landscape with my phone, I don't accidentally cover it with my finger. Again, like music, you can send all pics to the SD card exclusively.Battery ... Using it constantly, I have yet to go below 50% in one day. This includes streaming music and surfing online.Now the down side, I haven't found the Denim update for this phone yet and I didn't pull any stars because I hope the two major issues I have are resolved in the updates for the phone. 1) Screen rotation is not crisp, you turn your phone and wait long enough to ask yourself is this normal. Well unfortunately it is for this phone and while not a deal breaker, I don't enjoy this aspect of the phone so far. 2) Finger swipes [ zooming ] in internet explorer. Some sites that use flash or some type of script just do not display properly. This is part phone software and part internet developers not testing sites with Windows Phone. You cannot zoom in out and or scroll once you select certain panes in a website. Again no stars lost in my mind as I can wait to use another device in viewing the site, but I shouldn't have to.If you are on the fence about the size ... I cut, stacked and taped a block of cardboard the size of the phone off the back of a legal pad and carried in my pocket for a few days before I bought this. Try it and if after that you aren't put off ... BUY IT and buy it UNLOCKED HERE !!!P.S. I bought the Incipio NGP case and the front lip is deep enough to lay the phone screen face down on your desk without causing scratches and it also has just enough of a lip to cover the camera on the back size.
