With the launch of its second 6-inch phablet namely the Lumia 1320, Nokia too has finally made an entry in to the mid-range phablet segment, which is a crucial segment especially in India. And the good part is that unlike many, Nokia does not seem to have compromised on either the design or the features on its phablet despite giving it a Rs 23,999 price tag, which we feel is great pricing for such a product. However, Nokia will still be facing a tough competition from the Android equipped phablets in this space, especially Samsung’s Galaxy Grand 2. We used the phablet for a short while, and following are our first impressions. Also Read - Nokia C30 budget phone launched with price under Rs 10,000: Check specs, price

The Lumia 1320 looks beautiful despite carrying that massive 6-inch HD display. Nokia has used its polycarbonate plastic unibody design on this Lumia device as well, and we must say that it indeed has done it pretty well enough to make the phablet look like any premium device. The edge-to-edge running display has been surrounded by the plastic framing with slightly curved corners, which makes it look different from the Lumia 1520 phablet. The display is protected with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3.

Nokia has placed the hard keys and microUSB as well as audio jack and SIM card slots as usual, on the sides like seen on previous Lumia models. The thin body of the phone makes it easy to reach the keys, though you might still find it uncomfortable to hold such a big device in one hand.

Talking of the 6-inch HD display, we quite liked it in the short period of time we had used it. The touch interface worked smoothly, and the display came crisp and vibrant, and offered good visuals even at various viewing angles.


The Lumia 1320 runs on Windows Phone 8 with Lumia Black update and, thanks to the huge display, offers a third column of tiles on the homescreen. Needless to say, the tile interface looks colorful and attractive as ever, and is interactive with live updates right on the homescreen.

Hardware-wise, the phablet is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz with 1GB of RAM. On the memory front comes 8GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 64GB using a microSD card along with 7GB of free cloud storage.

What might just come as a disappointment to some is the 5-megapixel rear camera sensor, which looks minuscule as compared to the competing devices, at least on paper. However, we will reserve our verdict on the camera till the time we test the phablet for a longer duration.

Having said that, Nokia Lumia 1320 gets high five for its design and looks and can easily beat even the premium pahblet or devices from other vendors.

At this price point, the Lumia 1320 phablet will be up challenging the yet to be priced Samsung Galaxy Grand 2, which has a relatively smaller display but runs on Android and gets higher resolution camera and better apps.
