    nice camera .. good software but its too much freezing and some time cant use it because the sensitive of the screen is very bad .. battery heating if playing a heavy game but the games work very well .. but the best thing in the mobile is the camera and windows 10

  • awesome phone, with one major flaw

    there is a design flaw that causes the display to generate touches randomly after extended use of the phone, this was never addressed properly, other than through some software patches, which can't fix a hardware issue.

    loved everything about this phone other than that

    Best Lumia

    You say `` 1520 '' and you think with regret about the monster you had in your hands, complete in everything, from the camera to the battery, from the generous and fantastic display, a huge and heavy device for the time (autumn 2013), much more of Note 3, rival of Samsung. Yet fantastic, Lumia 1520 was too far ahead, alone he was pulling and making an operating system shine with value and potential but which, due to faults and bad luck, received the fate that we know. Only 930 was able to replicate almost all this magic.

    There is not much to say, just to talk about the rest you could not expect much from a low-end

    Nothing to say about this phone

    Panel amoled very spectacular, at the level of the high-end samsung of his time, very fluid, exceptional overall performance, I tried it with windows 10 mobile and everything was perfect, very sufficient storage, the camera was spectacular, it was not the 1020, but I had a very good level of detail, a pretty good zoom, video recording with optical stabilization, very complete manual mode, the front camera was just enough, the battery was very good, the only thing I shot back was the lack of apps

    Positives
    • Spectacular screen
    • Spectacular battery
    • Spectacular performance
    • Spectacular camera
    Negatives
    • Missing apps
    • Discomfort at hand (very straight and large)

    In full 2019 works as if it were new

    I must be the only one in Chile who still uses Windows 10 mobile and I really do not regret it. It is a team that despite being short of useful life due to the "death" of your OS. The truth is that its hardware and software features are 10 points, far the best is Clearblack technology, it is not necessary to cover the cell phone in full sun to use it and the camera does not dissapoint although it is true that the camera apmication Nokia added a lot of value ... Excellent battery due to Windows. The truth has no greater explanation of his death, beyond the little affection of Microsoft. The truth a pity! I will use it until I no longer pledge

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
