    Hi,

    My lumia 1520 on its way to me so I am curious is there a list of apps and games which are optimized to full hd resolution and which (mostly games, I guess) can make full use of snapdragon 800?
    Or if there are no list what are your opinions/preferences?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think any use 1080p but they all pretty much scale correctly except old games and apps designed for WP7 devices. I'll compile a list of what I use when I'm back on my PC.

    There are some old apps which do not scale properly. You will see a black bar at the top in such apps. iMDB comes to mind. But such apps are quite rare and most apps will scale properly.

    Don't think there are any games which make use of the Snapdragon 800 since this processor is new for Windows Phone and it's available only in one phone right now.

    Even I had the same doubt

    In store description most of the apps showing 720p resolution support only which means they are not written in full hd resolution
    though they are compatible the graphics and everything seems to be upscaled or adjusted (Fit) resolution on phone

    Angry Birds Go is super fun on the 1520.

    The 1520 and 930/Icon have the SnapDragon 800. The HTC One M8 has an 801.

    I always like Hill Climb Racing and it's more fun on the screen size...

    What you really want is MoliPlayer Pro & a good rip and convert program. Format your video files to take advantage of the screen and enjoy some great movies and TV shows on demand. Go ahead, you've got storage options as well.

    My pick for a fun time waster: Frisky Dingo, converted from my DVD collection via DVDFab.

    Asphalt 8: Airborne is fun. Jetpack Joyride is always a good one if you just want a quick game of something.
    I also enjoy Absolute RC Heli Sim.
