Nokia Lumia 1320 Overview
Smartphones with screen sizes up to (and sometimes exceeding) 6 inches have created a new product category - the 'phablet'. These devices are caught somewhere between tablet and smartphone, although they will always offer full cellular connectivity. You might struggle to get them in your pocket but the super size screens are the best option for enjoying browsing, media content and games and consumers have been voting with their money! The Lumia 1320 launches as a budget option alongside the Lumia 1520 and is a more wallet friendly solution for those wanting a super size Lumia.
The Lumia 1320's 6 inch ClearBlack IPS LCD screen with Gorilla Glass 3 has a clear 720p HD resolution, perfect for enjoying stored content, streaming videos and gaming.
An upgrade in screen size should also provide additions to raw power. The new 6 inch devices are the first Lumia handsets to be fitted out with quad core processors, the Lumia 1320 boasting a 1.7 GHz quad core Snapdragon 400. Coupled with 1 GB of RAM, this puts the 1320 significantly above previous Lumias in raw power and future proofs the device in advance of updates to the Windows Phone OS.
The newer Qualcomm processor brings with it advanced support for gaming and high definition video rendering with the built in Adreno 305 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).
In order to keep the Lumia 1320 at an affordable price point, a few concessions have had to be made compared to other big name Lumia devices. The biggest change is the inclusion of a 5 megapixel camera module. This doesn't feature Nokia's long standing and respected PureView technology. It is,however, a respectable camera capable of delivering decent images on the go.
Nokia HERE services have been of top interest to followers of the Lumia range in recent years. HERE Maps and HERE Drive provide an excellent navigation combination with turn-by-turn navigation and offline mapping & routing for almost 100 countries worldwide. HERE Transit affords you information on local public transport information and mapping when outside of the car.
If you're a WIndows Phone user but have been wanting something larger than the current crop of devices then the Lumia 1320 may well be the smartphone for you. The combination of top of the range design, a super-sized screen and decent hardware keeps everything in check for the budget conscious consumer.
