Top Customer Reviews
I am interested in the specs of Lumia from following parameters. phone: size, weight, resolution, ppi, RAM, ext Storage, camera, CPU, USA SAR rating
Nokia Lumia 1520: 6.41 x 3.36 x 0.34 in, 209gm, 1080 x 1920 pixels, 6.0 in, 367 ppi, 2 GB RAM, microSD up to 64 GB, 20 MP/1.2MP, Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 CPU Quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait 400, SAR: 0.59 W/kg (head), 0.24 W/kg (body)
In my opinion, following are key specs to consider. Most of others are standard or does not matter at all. First size,weight and resolution are part of look and feel. RAM/CPU part of performance. external Storage is part of expandability. Camera is obvious! SAR (Specific Absorption Rating) is an often ignored, but I feel essential to making a buying choice. Manufacturers don’t advertize or mention SAR prominently.
The things that pop out is the screen size and the external storage capability. Obviously weight is a downside. The windows phone 8 operating system has matured to a large extent and most of common apps are available. It does still lag its distant cousins iOS and Android. But Nokia has given a splendid hardware. My experience of using camera (one of the best cameras in the smartphone and a key differentiator), navigation, reading articles, books, listening to music, watching videos were flawless. I highly recommend to anyone interested in windows platform. This phone is something to definitely checkout!
As for a comparative analysis I have laid the specs of other top 2014 phones. I am sticker to useful specs and I find following spec will help you decide the best phone for your use case.

Great battery life, don't even think about it anymore. Whereas with all my previous android phones I had to constantly know where the closest charger was, just in case. This easily makes it through the day with just the overnight charge. It's a complete non-issue.
Touch Responsiveness is very smooth. On the level or just slightly above that on my iPad, and it absolutely destroys the smoothness (or lack) of any android device I've ever had or tried.
Really great camera hardware AND software. Lots of cool stuff you can do with this camera.
Large screen is really great for reading. The large keyboard makes typing really easy and efficient. I thought the size of the phone may be a negative for this phone when I got it, but it's probably the opposite. The larger screen allows for so many positive things. If you have small hands it may be an issue I guess, but not so bad for my medium-sized hands. It does require two-hand usage in a lot of scenarios, but I'm pretty used to it.
App depth is not as good as iOS or Android. This is a given, but I have found almost every app I've needed. I don't really play a lot of games except for chess, crossword puzzles and word games. There's good games for all of those. There are more games than I really care to get into. I can't really judge it because I'm not really into it.
The biggest issue is really Google services, which there isn't much of at all. It is kind of annoying, but I've been essentially moving away from Google services as a result and at least that part has worked fine. Skydrive is equivalent to (or actually kind of better due to MS Office integration) Google Drive. Bing search is not as good as Google, but the gap is probably smaller than you imagine. For essentially 90% of the things I search, both would give the same thing as the top result. Nokia's HERE maps are surprisingly just as good as Google maps honestly. Outlook.com (forwarded from gmail) has worked well so far. The set up was a little difficult at first but I finally got it working. The only thing I haven't been able to replace is Google Talk, which I relied on heavily on my androids and now I'm having to live without. =/. At least my new plan has unlimited texts, so I guess that isn't so bad. I wish Google would just be a bro and give us some WP apps. It's kind of turning me sour on them for the way they have sort of behaved towards WP.
This phone can be difficult to carry sometimes. The size is a negative in some respects. It fits well in some of my pockets and not well at all in others. I usually just go with carrying it in my underarm. I do have a case on it, the material feels a little slippery, or whatever the opposite of being able to have a good grip on it is. It really is such a sexy ass phone without the case on though. I might carry it around case-less sometimes just for that effect. It feels really nice in the hands and looks great, but I don't trust myself not to drop it.
Sometimes registers clicks when you are scrolling. I've heard this is a 1520 issue. Not a huge deal, but hope they fix it with some software update at some point. It can be annoying, but its fairly rare.
