Is Big Bet­ter?

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

The Lu­mia 1520 not only marks Nokia’s en­try into the grow­ing ph­ablet mar­ket but it also is the first ph­ablet run­ning the Win­dows Phone op­er­at­ing sys­tem. The ph­ablet has the sig­na­ture Lu­mia de­sign as found on its pre­de­ces­sors – Lu­mia 920 and 1020. It has a six-inch dis­play with 1920x1080 pixel res­o­lu­tion that of­fers good vis­i­bil­ity when out­doors. The de­vice is 3.36 inches wide and 6.4 inches tall, which makes it un­com­fort­able to hold. It can­not be op­er­ated with a sin­gle hand or car­ried in your pock­ets. The user in­ter­face and the de­fault apps re­main the same. Nokia has added its PureView cam­era tech­nol­ogy to this ph­ablet. It is pow­ered by a 20MP cam­era and the de­fault cam­era app is re­placed by Nokia Cam­era. There is also a spe­cialised Nokia Pro Cam app that al­lows us to quickly ad­just set­tings for the flash, white bal­ance, shut­ter speed and bright­ness. Fo­cus can be ad­justed man­u­ally. The im­ages are sharp and clear, but the im­age qual­ity isn’t im­pres­sive in low-light con­di­tions.

The Lu­mia 1520 is pow­ered by the Qual­comm Snap­dragon 800 pro­ces­sor clocked at 2.2GHz and is paired with 2GB RAM. It han­dled graphic in­ten­sive apps with ease and can be used by gamers, too. This is backed up with a good bat­tery as it lasted us a day with av­er­age use.
