    Hi everyone. Can you please tell me how the blacks look on Lumia 1520 screen? Washed out as Lumia 920 or closer to Lumia 1020? Thanks

    very black for ips. Looks nearly as black, if not as black, as the 900.

    I hear it is more like a 800/900 black, meaning it has the best blacks for the type of technology. So it is much better than the 920's blacks.

    I moved from a 900 straight to the 1520. I actually wanted to check this before I gave them my 900 since I'm very picky and prefer my blacks on a screen to actually be black. This screen is the closest to true black I have ever seen on a non-OLED type screen. It's really surprising just how dark it stays.

    Very true. I used to think I was spoiled because of the blacks on an oled display, but the 1520 is close enough for me, and not having to worry about burn-in is worth the very minor tradeoff.

    Sounds great :-) Thanks everyone. I think I will be buying this beauty very very soon. Hoping to see some pict/spec of the international version of 5/5.2 inch phone before buying it.

    The 1520 actually isn't AMOLED! And yet, it still has an amazing display, in whites, blacks, colors, EVERYTHING!
