5.0 out of 5 stars Phablet? Or should that be FAB-let?, 17 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nokia Lumia 1520 SIM-Free Smartphone - Black (Windows, 32GB) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Okay, that pretty much lays out my shingle! I love this beastie. Apart from a few starter hiccups that were as much about my learning curve than anything else, this has been a beautiful friendship so far between me and this device. Yes, the keyboards were all in Chinese to start with but that's soon changed. You can personalise the front screen with all your own bells and whistles and fave apps so everything you use regularly is close by and there's a comprehensive list for all the other stuff. I've had The Device now for two months and it goes everywhere with me. The screen is HUGE and bright, the built-in maps are amazing and downloading content to it is a breeze. The camera is amazing and is good for both work and play. The only slight downer is the battery time but turning location and wi-fi off seems to lengthen the time between charges. The accompanying documentation is, frankly, pretty rubbish, but there is on-line help available. As for lack of apps - it hasn't bothered me so far and I have d/l'ed a few things now from various 'readers' to games and music and all seems just fine and anyway, who really needs an app that makes your face looked like a squished tomato in 'selfies'? All in all, a great purchase and a thoroughly enjoyable machine to own and use and well deserving of the five stars I've given it.
Disclaimer - I am not part of Nokia nor any of its subsidiaries nor am I anything to do with content providers, Windows, or any of that malarkey! I just use a mobile phone like everyone else and I would recommend this to anyone who fancies trying out the Windows platform with a half-phone half-tablet. Hope this helps.
