New Lumia phone packs impressive camera credentials.
The Lumia 1520 is the first phablet from Nokia. And it's a debut to remember. With a gorgeous six-inch screen for enjoying media, tons of excellent productivity apps to help you take care of business while you're on the move and a brilliant camera, this is a smartphone-tablet hybrid that plays as hard as it works.
Phones that have got on-the-go entertainment covered are ten-a-penny. But few do it as well as Nokia's Lumia 1520. And a big part of that is the stunning six-inch 1080 HD display. Not only does this deliver crystal clear images for when you want to enjoy a movie or play some games. It offers superb outdoor readability too, so doubles as a terrific e-reader.
The display is briliant for checking out the glorious high resolution photos and videos you take with the onboard 20-megapixel PureView camera too. And with the built-in Nokia Storyteller app and image editing tools, you can add captions and creative photo effects to tell stories of your adventures and travels. It really is the stuff that memories are made of.
Your videos will sound amazing too. That's thanks to Nokia's Rich Recording technology and the Lumia 1520's four microphones. The result is stereo recording that's totally free of distortion and that adds a sheen of real professionalism to your mini movies.
And when it's time to knuckle down, the Lumia 1520 won't let you down. Because Microsoft Office is built-in you can check out and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents wherever you are. All without losing the formatting of the original. Just as handy is the SkyDrive app. This means that you can save documents online in the cloud and return to them whenever you like.
To ensure your peace of mind, Nokia has equipped its phablet with enterprise-level security so you can email work contacts with confidence. Lost your device? No problem. You can wipe the Lumia 1520 remotely to ensure that sensitive information doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
Of course, as with all Window Phone smartphones, the Lumia 1520 is brilliant for apps. There are tens of thousands to choose from at the Windows Marketplace. Plus you get the innovative LiveTiles that serve up information and updates about things you're interested right to your homescreen. And which mean you can customise your handset and really have it your way.
Other features of this superlative handset include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.2 GHz processor to keep everything running smoothly, a secondary 1.2-megapixel camera for video calls and self-portraits, 4G support and the option to boost storage by up to 64GB by adding a microSD card.
