The day has come when Nokia will stand up and be recognised as a force to be reckoned with. This stance comes in the form of the stunning Lumia 1520.
This large (there is no hiding it really) phone is the one that has been designed to bring the fight to Android flagships like the Z1, S4 and HTC One. It has the same Snapdragon 800 chipset it has a 1020p resolution screen. It has a PPI well into the 300s (367 ppi to be exact), 32gb on board memory and a stunning 20mp Pureview Camera with a Carl Ziess lens.
