    My Nokia Lumia 1520 coming on Monday but I heard it have no different feature than any other Lumia phone. It is a phablet but treated as a normal phone while if you see Note 3 it have features which make it a phablet.

    Having owned every note so far I can say I barely used the spen. I found writing on my iPad a lot more practical. You will love the phone. Took 1 day to get used to it. Now it seems very normal. I carry it everywhere.

    But there should be some features which make that 6" screen different than 4.5" screen am I wrong?

    I have owned all 3 Notes as well. and rarely ever used the S-Pen. While I love my 1520, if At&T ever gets the same specs into a 5" handset, I'll get it day one.

    WP's phablet game is pretty bad. You don't see any more content on the larger screen, it just gets blown up to fit. I doubt this will change anytime soon either.

    Yes. Watching movies, sharing photos, playing games, reading web content on a massive clear screen is what separates this device vs any smaller screen.

    As to games comment above it depends of the developer includes 1080p support.

    You apparenty either never used a 1520 yourself or you're utterly ignorant. Nothing gets blown up (unlike what is was like on the HTC Titan). You actually do see more content everywhere. This requires an app to make use of the 1080p resolution though. If it does not, it gets scaled up. But that's an issue with the app and not the phone or OS.

    I have not owned a 1520 myself, but pictures like these seem to indicate that few apps take advantage of the larger screen. Can you show an app that makes use of the extra screen?

    And then there's this whole thing. 2 extra inches and still displays less information than the iPhone (click to enlarge).

    It's not a phablet. Just a phablet form factor.

    Phablet = phone + tablet style apps
