We have seen a lot of different devices from Nokia and not all have been great.
Nokia is a company that is out there for a long time and it was expected of them to have their ups and downs. However, when it comes to the Lumia series, these smartphones have always been able to handle the competition. LG on the other hand, keeps on producing great smartphones lately and it will be interesting to see how these two great devices handle each other.
The Nokia Lumia 1520 is pretty much similar to the other members of the Lumia family. We have seen an increase in size as the series progressed, but the design has not changed much apart from that. This is a good thing, since the Lumia series always featured attractive devices that kind of made your device stand out in the crowd of white and black smartphones. For a device that is as large as the Lumia 1520, it is pretty slim (8.70 mm), but its weight can sometimes be a burden as it is one of the heavier phones out there (209 grams). It comes in a few available colors and you can always change the back cover if you get bored of a certain color. The LG Optimus G Pro is not a bad looking phone at all. It’s just that it doesn’t really offer anything new, when it comes to its design and there are a lot of phones out there that look very similar to this device. It is 9.7 mm thick (could be a bit slimmer, but it is a matter of preference) and it weighs 170 grams.
The displays are not that different from each other. Both the devices offer 1080×1920 resolution and the resolution translates into 368 ppi on the Lumia 1520 and 401 ppi on the LG G Optimus, which means that the LG G Optimus has a bit clearer display than the Lumia 1520 does. A reason for this is that the LG G Optimus has a smaller display (5.5”) than the display that is featured on the Lumia 1520 (6 inch). The size of the display that is featured on the Lumia 1520 can create issues when operating the phone and unless you have really large hands, one handed operation is almost impossible.
Both the devices have great cameras, with the Nokia Lumia 1520 having a 20 MP camera, while the LG G Optimus has a 13 MP camera. Front camera that is featured on the LG G Optimus is slightly better than the one that the Nokia Lumia 1520 has (2.1 MP vs. 1.2 MP) and this can be an important factor for users that prefer using the front facing camera. The colors on both cameras are accurate and the images taken have minimal noise. Images taken in low light conditions will not be very satisfying, but that’s the problem with nearly every smartphone camera that is currently in the market.
