We’re casting jealous eyes towards the east here at Nokia Conversations, because the sales launch of the fabulously good-value Nokia Lumia 1320 has recently kicked off in several countries across Asia.
To add salt to our wounds, we took at look at the response this budget-friendly big-screen smartphone has garnered on the Web. Called “sweetheart of a deal” by CNET and “pretty hot” by Windows Phone Central, it seems like a stellar choice for those of us too impatient to save up for a Nokia Lumia 1520. To see for yourself, check out what some of internet’s top tech blogs have to say about this big-screened beauty.
“The good part is that unlike many, Nokia does not seem to have compromised on either the design or the features of the Nokia Lumia 1320 despite what we feel is great pricing for such a product.”
“The most interesting part of this Lumia 1320 is the fact that you get three columns of Live Tiles on the Start Screen. While the Lumia 1520 at 1080p resolution includes this also, it’s clear that the arrangement is not resolution dependent and it’s related to the size of the screen.”
“While it’s true that the Lumia 1320 is a large handset – that 6-inch display is gargantuan to behold – it doesn’t feel particularly bulky or cumbersome in the hand. The rounded edges and slim profile are delightful and the rubbery plastic exterior is pleasant to the touch.”
“Battery life is one of the Lumia 1320’s strong points, as it has a large 3400 mAh battery built in. Even big batteries don’t always go far on phablets, but the relatively low power of the Lumia 1320 ensures it lasts the day with ease.”
Well, the quotes speak for themselves, but what about you lucky ones who already own the Nokia Lumia 1320? What are your first impressions and do you agree with the internet’s tech community? Or would you rather spend a bit more and up the specs? I’m intrigued to hear what you have to say, so please jot down your thoughts in the comments section.
