Encounter with a Goliath 2 – Nokia Lumia 1320
By Rahul Radhakrishnan | 2 May 2014
At first glance the Lumia 1520 looks like a magnified Lumia 625 - it has almost same design and same exact build. The 6 inch display fills up your hands and your face. There are some sensors and touch sensitive Windows buttons and VGA camera to go with screen.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 has a 6" high quality IPS LCD screen of 720p resolution, the pixel density works out to 245ppi. The LCD incorporates Nokia's ClearBlack tech - a set of polarizing filters, which minimize glare. Plus, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top for protection.
The 6inch IPS LCD display is a pretty decent display it shows real tone color reproduction, viewing angles are very good with only a minor shift in contrast when going to extremes, adjustable saturation and temperature levels, and you’ve got an outstanding Smartphone display of its class(720p). Above the screen is a VGA front-facing f/2.8 camera along with an array of sensors. The front of the phablet is entirely coated with Gorilla Glass 3, which covers the screen, the capacitive keys and front camera.
The processor is not as impressive as the Lumia 1520, which sports a quad-core 800 clocked at 2.2 GHz, but the Snapdragon S4 1.7 GHz dual-core CPU found in the Lumia 1320 is now officially the second fastest of all Windows Phones. So it is no slouch. It also has 1 GB Ram to go along with it. Rounding out the spec sheet is the 1520′s storage capacity. In addition to the 8 GB of onboard storage, the 1320 also offers a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion up to an additional 64GB, to go along with it you will get 7 GB of SkyDrive space.
Battery life is great, It has same massive battery of 3,400mAh, light-weight Windows Phone OS and power-efficient display, a less spec’d device than Nokia Lumia 1520 makes it the best device among the battery backup of phablets. It has a removable back cover but the huge battery is sealed in. The microSD and SIM card slots reside behind here.
It doesn’t have the option of wireless charging, since it doesn’t have the three pins I am not expecting it o have a wireless charging cover to be released. Add in 802.11ac, BT 4.0, and NFC support; and alongside HSPA+, and you’re all the whistles of connectivity to go with it.
The camera is 5 MP non PureView camera a 1/4 inch sensor with an aperture rating of f/2.4, complimented with a single - LED flash. But that said the camera is very good especially for macro shots whoing great details and taking very good pictures on daylight. Video Recording is fine showing pretty go details in daylight. But the macro shots was really good. The front VGA camera is nothing to right home about, it is there to do video call forget the selfies, since it is not very good.
If your idea is to have a huge phablet with Big screen for a budget friendly price and you love using phone for multimedia consumption and Microsoft office suite for work , this phone perfectly fits for you.
