Lumia-1520-wireless-charging_632CNET has posted the above table comparing the specs of the Nokia Lumia 1520 with the HTC One Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

From the list it is pretty clear that Nokia has created hardware that for once they have no reason at all to make excused for, be it from the point of view of processor, screen, camera, thinness and even size of the battery.

At this point about the ball is 100% in Microsoft’s court, in providing the software which makes the phablet a worthwhile purchase.
