Display

The Nokia Lumia 1520 has a 6" IPS Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) classy screen of 1080p resolution, the pixel density works out to 367ppi. The Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) assembly incorporates Nokia's ClearBlack tech - a set of polarizing filters, which minimize glare. Plus, Gorilla Glass 2 on top for protection.

The capacitive touch sensor on the display features the supersensitive touch technology that allows it to detect fingers even through winter gloves.

The 1520 comes with the Lumia Color Profile option in the settings, which gives you two sliders to play with - one for color temperature (which spans the cool, neutral and warm range) and color saturation (natural to vivid).

Nokia Glance classy screen keeps the clock and notification counters visible even after you lock the screen. This could be set to appear only for a small while after you lock the screen, intermittently on and off and always on. There's a separate always on setting for when the device is charging. A Night mode allows you to pick a different color for the Glance classy screen info - Red, Green or Blue - if the default White setting is too colorful for your sleepy eyes.

One recent option in GDR3 is the classy screen rotation lock. That's an vital feature for a phablet, but unfortunately it's only accessible from the Settings menu, which means you have to leave the app you are in to change it, there are no quickly accessible toggles here (this is a common problem for any settings in Windows Phone).

As we already mentioned, the Lumia 1520 classy screen is tack sharp. Due to its large diagonal, pixel density drops below 400ppi, but 367ppi is still better than what most people's eyes can resolve, especially when you consider you tdiscontinue to hrecent a phablet further away from your eyes than a phone.

The viewing angles are pretty fine with only a minor shift in contrast when viewed at an extreme angle. Color rendering is fine and, as an added bonus, you can tweak the white balance and saturation to your liking. The one weak spot of the display is the black levels, which are not as remarkable as on AMOLED, but the overall contrast is still pretty great.
