    Seems like one of us is already sporting this massive sexy beast.
    And it seems it's got an SD slot.

    And if you look closely there's those misterious 5 pins on the back, along with the ZEISS branding instead of Carl Zeiss, just like the 1020.
    What do you think of this?

    I guess one will need a man purse to carry that book, it's like a clown's version of a mobile phone exaggerated to the point of ridiculousness.
    Instead of a man purse you hire a Sherpa to carry it they can also hold it when you take pictures. My phone is bigger than yours and I can last longer....

    I don't think they're mysterious holes. They look pretty similar to the holes we see on the 928, 925 and 1020 for wireless charging plates to 'plug in' to.

    I believe they could be for wireless charging too, but people think that those could be speaker holes or even proximity sensors (lol)

    Your whole argument is you don't like big phones.
    Good for you, I suppose.

    Lol. Let me guess, you're one of those people that thinks a car can't be sexy. So a Ferrari GTO, Shelby Cobra, McClaren F1, or any other isn't sexy? Riiight.

    Sexy can also describe inanimate objects...

    Maybe technically, but realistically, "sex" is the root of the word. Enough said!

    A bit too sensitive here. Internet is just the internet. Who cares what others say. It's not like I can stuff my fist into the screen and out the other to punch someone lol.

    I think 6" phones are overkill in a period where tablets are pretty major now, including mini ones that are 7". Phones should stick around the 4" area to combine function and form. 6" is too impractical unless you like watching videos on the go.

    But I'm liking the form factor for this one...

    I think it will fit in loose pockets. A "man purse" or other accessory may be necessary if the pants being don't fit it. But people who choose to do that probably are secure enough about themselves to not worry about it.
    I totally agree. Probably he wants a smaller device with the same specs, so he wants to prove Nokia is wrong making such big devices and he feels the urge to express himself in this way when he finds out that actually there are many people demanding this kind of device. If I need to look like a clown to get a device I like, then I suppose I will be a clown. Never really cared about what others think, I want a big device coz it better suits my needs.

    I think the 'too big' argument is useless, especially in the tablet era.
    I don't want to buy a tablet because it won't fit my purse (the one I normally use for my wallet, keys and cellphone and other stuff) and because I don't want to waste money for 2 different mobile devices that can potentially enable me to do the same things.

    Phablet is the perfect match for my case, and I think it is for many other clowns.

    Guys keep it on topic or take it to pms.

    Personally I like the look of the device and hope they have a mid-size device in the works. But Nokia recognise, like Samsung, that choice is king.

    The device looks good. Size shouldn't be an issue. I have seen Galaxy Mega 6.3 and despite having CHEAP plastic it looks good. The only phablet that i found odd is Xperia Z Ultra, which looks too big like a mini tablet. If the overall size of this device despite having 6 inch screen is smaller than Note 2 (as rumored), then it will be an all round winner.

    I think Nokia should also launch a 5.0 version of this device with same hardware and camera specifications, in order to compete with Xperia Z1

    Devices could be made in a wide variety of dimensions, and each one would have people that would find a good use for it. And each one would have people that say it is impractical.

    Some people would love a 3" device. Others would say that it's too small.

    Everyone lives a different life, and what one person may label as impractical can make perfect sense for another person.

    http://m.dictionary.com/d/?q=SEXY
    While sexy is in the eyes of the beholder, I find it disturbing when people, who are almost always male, anthropomorphize and fetishize inanimate objects. As an anthropologist though, I do find it interesting that, in the Western world, the objects of desire identified as sexy are perceived as being large or powerful.

    That's the very reason 'is too big' a useless argument when commenting about a phablet. It's like saying that a tablet is crap because is a tablet, because I can't understand the needs of who uses a tablet. Saying 'phablet is too big' is a personal matter, and more over it's not related to a specific device (in this case Lumia 1520). There were already many topics about this in general section.

    I think a proper disliking comment would be "I don't like the shape/specs/OS/price/specific feature of this phablet".
    Well, of course anybody is free to say what they want, even "I don't like this phablet because it's a phablet", and of course others are free to think what they want of such a comment.
    Far worse is to criticize the users or the needs of the ones who would buy a product, inside the very section of the product.

    But this is going to be philosophy.

    A more practical way to think would be : others (Samsung for example) manage to sell phablets, so making a phablet is the right choice to have the highest possible variety of kind of products to steal, for example, Android costumers. This is good for the whole echosystem.
