Nokia really nailed a consumer need with the Nokia Lumia 1320, a large screen phablet at an affordable price.
Powered by a dual-core processor, a 5MP camera and a 6in touchscreen display, this smartphone is all kinds of awesome.
The screen is in fact so large and so bright, I have been using it to light my way during night-time strolls to the fridge.
Sleek and simple, just how I like it. User interface is also clear-cut and minimal so it’s easy to use. The interchangeable backplate can be switched out for other coloured shells, but so far I am sticking with white. Purely because it looks great next to my lightsaber. ‘Bzzzzttttttwooooooommmmmmm’
The Nokia Lumia 1320 really ups the ante in the budget range of Windows Phone devices with a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It comes with a standard 8GB of internal memory but has a microSD card slot to boot which supports up to 64GB.
A 5MP sensor with 4x digital zoom is pretty impressive for an entry level (smartphone) camera. Installing the Nokia Camera app pulls features from Nokia Pro Cam and Nokia Smart Cam modes into one. That means fast access to photo editing and sharing. I like.
The Nokia 1320 can also capture videos with 1080p resolution at 30fps. The Nokia Creative Studio is also great for editing photos into artsy-fartsy hipster shots.
Fitted with a 3400 mAh battery, it’s one of the largest battery EVER launched by Nokia. 25 hours of talk time, 28 days of standby time, 9 hours of video playback or 98 hours of music. Phew. This phone has more energy than I do. In real-life, the battery will see you through a good couple of days with frequent use which is quite a feat to accomplish for a phone that does so much. Well done, Nokia. Now please bring back ‘Snake’.
