Nokia Lumia 1520 and HTC One Max – Specs review and price

With the competition going on for bigger screen phones, Nokia and HTC have got their new entries Nokia Lumia 1520 and HTC One Max in the market which are worth considering.

Nokia Lumia 1520 is a 6-inch decent phone which runs Windows Phone 8, which has a slice of the smartphone market. One good thing about this phone is that text and images don’t simply get wafted up. But the software acclimates the layout to take benefit of the larger screen.

In big size windows phones, you get to see the third column of apps on the home screen, can preview two line of emails instead of one and can also see more contact information at once for people in your address book while in big android phones, you don’t see much modification, only the content is slightly enlarged.

Lumia 1520 is the first windows phone of its size. The Lumia 1520 has a camera of 19MP and has the same camera technology as the 4.5-inch Lumia 1020 and has got a software fix to get rid of the 1020’s tendency to make images too yellow.

Lumia 1520 inclines to be slower than most cameras in snapping shots as the taking and storing all those pixels takes time. The Nokia Lumia 1520 comes handy at $199 with contract through AT&T and at $585 without contract.

Talking about the HTC One Max, it is a 5.9-inch giant version of the regular, 4.7-inch HTC One. HTC has introduced a variety of customized content on home screen such as your favorite news sites and content shared by friends on Facebook and Twitter but you can also turn that off if you choose a traditional home screen experience.

The One Max is also offering a fingerprint scanner for bypassing the security password and also launches the app depending on which finger you use.

The camera provided in One Max is 4MP but HTC has made the sensor for individual pixels larger to pick up more light. It comes with a feature Zoe that takes up to 20 shots in three seconds. The HTC One Max is a good choice if you need a good phone in its screen size.
