Now analyzing in detail the most important features of the Nokia Lumia 1320, you can not notice the large integrated display, 6-inch diagonal and characterized IPS panel, glass, Corning Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant 3 and the ability to be used even with nails and with gloves, but too bad for the only HD resolution, a little low for a screen of this size.

There are ambient light sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor to automatically turn off the screen during calls and magnetometer. As for design, the phone has a Unibody polycarbonate porous coating and pleasant to the touch. Turning to the field of photography, this Lumia is equipped with a 5 megapixel main camera with f/2.4 aperture, focal length of 28 mm, LED flash, 4x digital zoom and video footage in Full HD.

The Nokia Lumia 1320 is one of the first attempts by Nokia to go into the field of phablet, along with the Lumia in 1520, but while the latter offers a very technical performance, the Lumia does not do so in 1320 offering a medium quality hardware, perhaps not enough to push a phone of this size. Even the display, although of good quality, is only HD, which is another minus. On the plus side stands instead LTE support, the high autonomy, the new operating system. Not exciting either the photographic industry.
