Big design

With a six-inch screen, the 1320 justifies the definition of 'big'. There are no major changes in design. At 220g, it is a bit heavier than the 1520 (which is a bit higher in price and features).

All the keys (volume rocker, lock/power and camera) are on the right and are more responsive.

The earpiece, front camera, primary sensors and three touch buttons are on the front. Unlike the 1520 that used a nano-SIM, the 1320 houses a microSIM.

The back cover on the 1320 is removable. Once you take it off, you can see the SIM-card slot and the microSD one overlapping each other. This was tricky and it took us time to insert the SIM.

Beautiful camera

The 5MP rear camera, with a 4x zoom on the 1320, can click impressive photos. With a strong LED flash, clicking in the dark shouldn't be a problem.

Users can choose from three lenses and Nokia Creative Studio let's you edit pictures on the device. The front camera (640x480 pixels) is decent.

Beautiful processor

The 1320 runs Windows Phone 8 effortlessly. There are no lags because of a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor. We were also impressed by the performance of the 1GB RAM. The jump from one application to another was seamless.

DirectX 11 makes gaming on the 1320 exciting. And the music playback of up to 98 hours and video playback of up to nine keep boredom at bay.

Big storage and battery

The pain of having in-built memory of just 8GB (5GB usable) has gone. Nokia has come up with a microSD memory card slot, expandable up to 64GB.

Also, there is 7GB of free cloud storage. The back cover is removable but the battery is not. The 1320 runs on a 3,400 mAh BV-4BW, one of the best-performing batteries in the Lumia series. A full charge will easily see the battery running for a couple of days.

Beautiful impact

At Rs 23,999, the 1320 is a good buy. But a six-inch phablet can be cumbersome. The integration of Office 365 and Internet Explorer 10 will make life easier, especially if you are a Windows Phone fan.

Available in four colours, the 1320 promises to be a delightful experience.
