Smartphones are quickly becoming the go to device for taking pictures and with a 20MP main camera sensor with optical image stabilization, RAW still capture, dual LED Flash, 3x digital zoom, and full manual control all available on the Lumia 1520 you won't have to compromise on image quality when you leave your dedicated camera at home. Along with still photos, you can record video at resolutions up to 1080p at 30 fps. Once recorded, you can then upload your video or photos directly to social media straight from the Lumia 1520. In addition to the enhanced rear facing camera, you can make Skype calls, record video, and capture stills with the 1.2MP front facing camera.

The Lumia 1520 also features 6.0" IPS LCD display complete with a 1920 x 1080 resolution and a pixel density of 368 ppi. The enhanced ClearBlack IPS display supports super sensitive touch screen technology giving you complete control over all of your apps. The ambient light sensor adjusts the display to match the current lighting conditions while the integrated accelerometer adjusts the display to match the phones viewing position.

Inside the Lumia 1520 you'll find a 2.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM memory giving you the necessary processing power to run a variety of applications and games. Along with enhanced processing power, this smartphone includes 32GB internal storage memory perfect for downloading applications, storing pictures and videos, and much more. If the 32GB internal memory isn't sufficient, you benefit from 7GB free cloud storage and a microSDXC card slot capable of holding memory cards up to 64GB.

With a variety of connectivity options the Lumia 1520 keeps you in the know wherever you go. This smartphone is compatible with select 2G, 3G, and LTE GSM networks. Along with the ability to connect to cellular data networks, you can also connect to 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac compatible Wi-Fi networks while Bluetooth 4.0 technology makes it easy to connect wireless devices such as Bluetooth headsets. This version of the Lumia 1520 also supports Qi wireless charging with any Qi compatible wireless charger (sold separately).

If a music player is what you are looking for, the Lumia 1520 has you covered. Download music apps like Nokia MixRadio to create subscription free customized radio stations. Along with Nokia MixRadio, you also have the ability to download a variety of Internet radio applications and even listen to FM radio directly from your phone.

If you ever get lost simply utilize the HERE Drive+, HERE Maps, and HERE Transit applications to get back on course. These integrated navigation applications provide turn by turn directions along with points of interest, routing options, live traffic information, turn-by-turn walking directions, public transportation routing guidance, and much more.

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.

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.

Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports. You can check which bands this phone works with in the Specifications.
Windows Phone 8.1 Ready
The phone comes with Windows Phone 8 preinstalled, however it can be immediately updated to Windows Phone 8.1 for free. Windows Phone 8.1 features a customizable home screen with resizable Live Tiles that update in real-time, making it easy to follow what's happening with your friends, family, apps, news, and social media sites. In addition to Live Tiles you can summon the help of Cortana, your digital assistant, to help you make calls, send texts, take notes, and more.

You can also access Xbox Live, Xbox Music, and OneDrive cloud storage. If the built-in apps aren't enough, you can always install more through the Windows Phone Store, which has access to hundreds of thousands of apps, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more.
6.0" IPS LCD Display
The Nokia 1520 features a 6.0" IPS LCD display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a pixel density of 368 ppi. IPS displays are known for their high contrast ratios and enhanced viewing angles. And the Lumia 1520's IPS display features 24-bit TrueColor with support for up to 16 million colors.

    Things...Read complete review

    I use my phone casually during the week and heavily during the weekends. You just can't beat having a big crisp screen for your calendar and for Microsoft Office.

    Things I like:

    * It's ability to run unlocked on any North American GSM provider with LTE.

    * Recording capabilities. Taking video of loud concerts records up to 107dB without distortion. It captures a good amount of bass. Something other phones cannot do

    * That camera! Colors just *pop* accurately with this phone. Also captures photos in RAW format for all you LightRoom aficionados.

    * Phone call quality is full and not muffled or distorted.

    * Battery life is above average.

    * Has Qi wireless charging built-in. Unlike the carrier specific versions where you have to snap on a case.

    Things that aren't so great:

    * None

    If you live or travel in areas with less than optimal cell signals, you might want to consider another phone. This unlocked phone is currently being used on T-Mobile service in a suburban area that has 4G LTE. Whatever the cause, the signal strength varies in this area. We have been using a T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 635 for several months, which reliably connects with good download speeds at 4G LTE throughout most of the region. The Nokia 1520, on the other hand, cannot receive a 4G LTE signal in many of the same locations, and measured download speeds are lower when it is able to connect. As I'm writing this, the 1520 is giving a data connection of 10.8/1.1 Mbps down/up, while the 635 is giving 23.5/8.0. These are direct comparisons of reception by these two phones, the Nokia 635 and the Nokia 1520, which is 5x the cost. While the unlocked 1520 has many features not offered by the 635, in my opinion it doesn't offset the fact that the phone may not be able to connect as reliably under less than optimal conditions, as in our service area. Considering the size difference of these two phones, you might think the 1520 would have room for larger antennas and more powerful radios, and thereby provide better reception than the smaller 635. The Nokia 1520 is definitely a nice phone, but it is not providing the performance we expected from a premium phone.

          This phone is the best phone I ever had. It takes a beating and also technically its a flagship phone. It integrates well with Windows desktop and tablet functionality. The app store needs some help but pretty much everything is available. RM-938 model works in the USA with Tmobile.

          Pros: Big screen, high res camera, great battery performance, great quad core phone. even though I have purchased this phone after about year and a half from the release date, can't believe the great performance overall.
          Cons: If you don't like big phones this phablet is not for you.

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

            I'm not a phone geek so I won't give a techie type review. I am a 58 year old female who has used Windows phones for three years. I switched from Android and had very little difficulty adapting to the platform. I do have to say that I am not a huge fan of Win 8, but love the ease and functionality of Windows using the Lumia. I upgrade from an awesome Lumia 920 to this 1520. The picture and screen resolution is crystal clear and the colors are true. The camera is better than my electronic camera. The lens is top notch, and the software options for photos are wide enough to satisfy a range of user expertise.
            This phone does everything I need it to do and more. I shop, pay bills, do class work, and more. The only thing I have discovered the platform will not support is transferring a file on the State's on line course site. And I love that my tablet, Lumia and computer all work together.
            Phone voice quality is good, no tinny, static. Love the customization of the screen that is easy to do. Apps are coming, more all the time. Only a couple I can't get yet, but if I look, I can probably find an adequate substitute. Except for Dead Yourself, but not everyone wants to look like a zombie.
            Based on the review by another user, I chose the phone with the setting to cover the most LTE carriers. I knew when I ordered it that it would be in Spanish (set for the South American market). There was no problem switching language, but it did help to have the other Lumia in hand for setting language if you are not fluent.
            I find myself constantly playing with this phone! I love this phone! There was about a 25-30% increase in size between this phone and my 920. It took very little adjustment time getting used to the size change. The only annoyance for me was positioning of my little finger on the side, at first I kept turning on the camera due to placement. When I put it into it's case, that took care of that issue pretty much. And speaking of cases, my recommendation is get a thicker back case that gives more protection to the lens by recessing it in the case. Because of the size of the screen, I opted for a tempered glass protector. I am looking forward to a happy love affair with this big beauty for a couple of years! After weeks of research and comparison shopping for price, quality, customer satisfaction, functionality, I kept coming back to this Lumia 1520 as tops in all areas. I highly recommend this phone!

            The phone itself is very nice and fast, but I wasn't aware that many apps are not available for the Windows OS. And the most I miss is the ability to watch live news channels. Live streaming (via YouTube or other) is not possible at this time on the Windows phones. I wouldn't have bought this phone had I known about this flaw. I just didn't expect this to be a problem, because any Android gadget has this feature with no problem. The only hope is that it will be solved in the near future.

                  The phone is amazing and performs just like I read it would on some of the reviews/blogs/comments. Since it is an unlocked phone capable of linking to most of the radio bands in the U.S., I was not surprised when it linked to Cricket without any problems or setup (other than putting in the SIM card). Now I have nationwide 4G lite access and a superior 1520 to the one sold on AT&T since Cricket uses the same network. BHPhotoVideo delivered a great phone in a matter of two days. I'm highly satisfied with this purchase. It performs more like a computer-laptop with it's capabilities and the size is only beneficial to this end. With Windows 10 just around the corner, I expect the upgrade to make it even better and superior to other phone systems.

                  I bought this phone for my husband for his birthday and he loves it. We use T Mobile and the phone picks up our network great and the LTE works just fine to. I am very happy with this phone and regret not buying myself one. I would recommend this phone and also the company they shipped it packed properly and on time. I had a question about the phone and emailed them it they had responded within 1 day. I will be buying from them again.

                        I'm in my second week with my 1520.32GB white. I just have to replace the 8GB SDcard I got with it to one of them 128GB SDcards.

                        This phone is awesome. I blame myself for not getting one earlier and stop waiting on Rogers and Microsoft to bring this gem to Canada.

                        It took me a day to get use to the new size coming from my 920. My 920 feels like a chicklet now. It works great on Rogers LTE, Battery life is nuts.

                          I use the phone for streaming media,take photos and use as a phone. the hardware specs are great for a phone that was a late 2013/early 2014 model phone, the screen size is the biggest pro and con at the same time where having the phone make everything easier to do on the device, for those not used to having a big phone (like myself, went from a 4.5in lumia 635 to this device) having to 2 hand a phone when using it feels strange at first but you owners get used to it.

                          Got the phone recently. I had a previous experience with windows phone with the 920. The 1520 runs smoother and a bit faster compared to the 920. I noticed a bit of difference though on the graphics. Online pictures such as running the Facebook app appear a bit fuzzy relative to what I recall from the 920. However, I am very happy with my Lumia 1520. Ran just great out of the box and love all the current apps unique to windows phone including the nokia maps and FM radio.

                          This Phone has everything (even more) I expected from a cell phone:
                          1) The Camera quality is amazing and exceptional 2) It s big screen size is fantastic for reading books and papers and easily could be replace with any e-book readers
                          3) The Battery life is fantastic; with normal usage, it gives your more than 36 hours battery life
                          4) It gives you more than enough internal storage (i.e. 32 GB) an is expandable up to 128 GB
                          5) It support Wireless charging

                          Considering I've had at least 15 Android and Apple phones over the past few years. Love the size, camera, and ease of Windows 8.1. Needs better apps but that will come with time. Worked flawlessly on T-Mobile.

                          I love Windows Phones. I've had the HTC 8X, Lumia ICON, HTC One M8, Lumia 928...and the 1520.3. Best of all worlds. The ONLY thing there is getting used to is the width and using mostly 2 hands to use it. Not really sure what else you need in a phone...

                          The Lumia 1520 is a great device and there are many versions of this device some of them meant for International version, some for South America, some for North America and China etc... Depending on the model you choose your phone may or may not have some of the LTE bands. I chose the South America version which is RM-938 and it has all LTE bands, plus it also has Qi wireless charging built is which is not available in RM-940 version that's meant for US (AT&T removes this capability). Plus this phone is a 32GB phone by default... Overall a great phone and B&H did a great job in delivering it on time.

                                The phone arrived on time. The one year warranty is through B&H. This phone came with ear phones, & charger. Can use household current or USB plugin. Works great with my service provider Consumer Cellular. They are affiliated with AT&T's network. It is a big screen phone, easier to navigate through menus and the pictures are fantastic. Great windows phone. Thank you B&H!

                                My reasons for purchasing the 1520 were: 1) stay in the MS ecosphere, 2) readable display, 3) overall performance. This phablet delivers in every respect. As a tablet, it allows me to present to clients in a close, intimate setting over coffee. Built-in speaker, camera perform great. Extremely convenient for note-taking and all the "on the fly" functions needed from a handheld device.

                                I did lots of research before deciding on this phone. It has everything I could want or need. I only used iPhones up until this point, and I am sorry that I didn't change sooner! The camera is amazing, the screen size phenomenal, call quality is clear and every body has commented on being able to hear me better than ever. This was one of the issues I had with the last iPhone, no one could hear me. It has all the apps that I need, minus one or two, but I can live without them. The main issue now is that I never want to put it down. I've converted my husband and son. Also working on converting my other family members!

                                I am an older guy so I more use my phones for work, e-mails, even work texting. I am not any kind of mobile operating platform fanboy. I have had a couple of i-phones way back, Android phones several times, and I was one of the first to dive into Windows Phone using a Dell Venue Pro I think it was called. Even back then, I was very impressed with how fluid Windows phone felt, Love how you can neven pin ONE favorite radio station JUST for example etc. to the start screen, great stuff, especially vs Android way back when. Anyway this review should be more about the 1520. I'm currently on T-Mobile so bought this 1520 with the .3 model number, as everybody said it would work here in the US on T Mobile using their LTE etc....well al works GREAT! I actually just came from owning the Samsung NOTE 4 which many people consider to be THE ultimate smart phone these days. I am happy to say I am enjoying the 1520 much more than my Note 4 "AS a phone." The Note though super versatile, is a screwey "PHONE" for calls. On the Note 4 if call waiting comes in,the call you are on goes silent..if you are using bluetooth it somehow disconnects the bluetooth AND your current call goes silent. A screen pops up do you want to put call 1 on hold? or call 2.? I tell you at 60 mph THAT is just not good! Ah, so to the 1520...it JUST works GREAT. No call waiting weirdness, the screen is beautiful, so far my battery life has been super great...I am a heavy business user and after a day of work I seem to have up to 50-60% battery life still left. The Note 4 was similar in the battery department also great. As to the 1520 specifically it fits in my pockets JUST FINE. It's larger than the note 4 yet I don't feel it's any larger in my pockets...I am talking regular jeans and or Khaki type pants..The phone does not stick out of the pckets in any way. Call quality is REALLY great..which is very important to me. A phone is a PHONE first with me. The phone feels really solid..I bought a VERY thin clear case for it if you want the beauty of the phone to still shine thru with almost no additional bulk..called the "AceAbove Nokia Lumia 1520 Slim Clear Back Case with Bumper CLEAR" if that may help anyone..you can google it to see where to buy it. More to the point this Nokia 1520 is a GREAT Windows phone, seems very solid as far as build quality goes, GREAT call quality and battery life..does everything FAST, things open in a very silky way. As to WP8.1 well that's up to you. I used to hate Android but I do miss a few things such as deeper customization..even a few widgets..but on the overall I prefer W8.1 when you are done "playing" with your phone, and just want the darn thing to work and work well! I highly recommend this beautiful phone and I must add B&H has been super with always selling me NEW factory fresh items..never get somebody's cus return which has happened to me many times on a couple other huge on line stores, you know who..! Overall from this 1520 to B&H this 1520 has been a wonderful experience.I'm quite happy with the phone. If I have one little complaint..unless I'm not aware of a setting for this, both of my blue tooth headsets sound JUST a little lower in volume than I would like with this 1520 BORDERING on almost too low if there is a lot of road noise while driving. It's not BAD, but I could definitely use a couple notches of extra bluetooth volume..and that's about my only complaint here if I have to have a con. Overall FANTSATIC phone!!!:)
