Nokia Lumia 1320, 6.0 ClearBlack & FLAC play

There are different ways to look at Lumia 1320 but the most remarkable could be its resemblance to the Lumia 625. In fact, both smartphones not only share a body but milestones as well. For one, their incredibly large displays complemented by designer glass is a new trend among Nokia’s mid-range smartphones.

The Lumia 1320 alongside other 6-inch smartphones hope to satisfy a growing demand for extra-large smartphones, generally known for their ability to provide comparable levels of user experience as smaller tablets.

Students and business people will certainly appreciate the Lumia 1320’s comprehensive office suite, LTE and high speed 3G, OneDrive cloud storage, Office 365, access to wide-ranging magazines on Zinio and a high capacity battery for the road.

For anyone shopping for a Windows Phone smartphone and tablet in one, minus the premium price, this is easily an excellent choice. Otherwise the more packed Lumia 1520 will do.

Nokia Lumia 1320 Features
  • Device available in unibody-like construction, with ceramic-style operating keys and slightly rounded corners for an easier fit through pockets.

  • For your convenience, Glance screen displays a large clock and some notifications in monochrome whenever the phone slips to stand-by and turns off the display.
