Nokia Lumia 1520 Overview
Nokia's first "phablet" debuted with outstanding camera specs: a 20-megapixel PureView camera with optical image stabilization as well as the ability to save uncompressed Digital Negative (DNG), or "RAW," files. While Nokia's Lumia Black update now adds RAW shooting to the Lumia 1020 as well, the 6-inch Lumia 1520 was the first to debut the technology on a Nokia device, along with the new Nokia Camera app.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a Windows Phone device that combines very good image quality with manual control over shutter speed and ISO, an excellent camera user interface and Raw capture. This makes it an ideal tool for those mobile photographers who want more control over the image taking process than is offered by the Android and iOS competition. If you feel comfortable with the 1520's phablet dimensions and can live with the slowish camera start-up and the limited choice of imaging apps in the Windows Store you can't go wrong with Nokia's latest device.
