The three devices we are looking at today, all fitting in the phablet category, namely the Nokia 1520, the LG G Pro Lite and the Galaxy Note 3, have become very popular since their release dates. They are acclaimed and very well perceived through the fact that they offer innovative designs and are are very affordable, as they won’t chip in your wallet a whole lot. However, out of the three, only one can be on top at the end, so let’s which one gets the crown in this comparison.
Looking at LG’s G Pro Lite phablet, the first thing you notice when you hold it is how light it is, weighing only 5.68 inches. The device packs a 5.5 inch screen with a maximum resolution of 540 x 960 and a 200 ppi pixel density. The screen operates using the IPS LCD technology. It is equipped with a few sensors, including a light sensor and a proximity sensor. The phone features an 8 MP shooter on the rear, as well as a 1.3 MP front facing lens. Completing the specifications list, we have the included 8GB of internal memory, which can be upgraded via a microSD card of 32 GB. It is reported to sustain the phone’s life during 16.60 hours of talk time, which isn’t bad at all. The LG G Pro Lite operates on Google’s Android operating system.
Moving on to one of the G Pro Lite’s competitors for today, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the first thing worth mentioning is the fact that this device is a litter heavier than the last, weighing in at 5.93 ounces. The Galaxy Note 3 also features a larger display when compared to the G Pro Lite, of 5.7 inches, compared to 5.5 inches displayed on the Pro Lite. The screen is better on the Galaxy Note 3 overall, as it also has a bigger resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a bigger pixel density of 386 ppi. The phone also features the light and proximity sensors mentioned for the Pro Lite, and on top of that, impresses with its scratch resistant glass. Next is the phone’s camera. The rear camera has 13 MP while the front facing one has 2 MP, both better than what the Note 3’s competition has to offer. The maximum storage amount available for this device is 64 GB, and also worth mentioning is the fact that this Google Android powered phablet can resist to up to 25 hours of talk time.
The last device of today’s comparison, the Nokia Lumia 1520, is the heaviest of al three phone presented, weighing 7.37 ounces. The device’s 1080 x 1920 resolution 6 inch display makes it the phone with the largest screen out of the three. While it has the weakest front facing camera, with only 1.2 MP, it balances out by having the best rear camera out of the bunch, with 20 MP and 1920 x 1080 camcorder capabilities. The 32 GB of existing memory can be upgraded up to 64 GB, and the phone’s battery sustains 27.40 hours of talk time. Unlike the first two devices, the Lumia is powered by Microsoft’s operating system, Windows Phone.
Unless you really want your phone to feature Android, the clear choice is the Nokia Lumia 1520, which leaves its competitors behind in terms of specifications. It is overall the better device.
