Interface and Functionality
Nokia Lumia 1520
In terms of software, the handset comes equipped with a latest version of Microsoft’s ever-evolving mobile platform; Windows Phone 8 along with GDR3 update. It may not be equipped with similar changes made to other platforms, such as Android version 4.4 KitKat and iOS7. However, the handset comes equipped with latest features and improvements to keep up with the changing times.
Notification: The Windows Phone 8 has a very messy notification system. Despite the handset coming with GDR3 updates, the notification system has not seen any significant changes. However, it does not mean that the latest version of the Windows Phone does not make any difference to the smooth functioning of the handset. The difference may not be visible to the untrained eye, but it presents an animated, flashy and appealing presentation to the potential user.
Messaging: The massive display of the Lumia 1520 handset offers the user a spacious keyboard for a great message typing experience. It comes equipped with auto-correct and responsive features. The voice dictation service offers great service in case you do not want to type the message.
LG Optimus G Pro
LG introduced the latest features in the company’s Optimus user interface. The updated UI provides the user with an option to switch the screen orientation to landscape mode. In addition, latest features are also added to its hardware, such as the notification bar toggle, QRemote application, IR Blaster and the physical QButton.
The Optimus UI also pioneered the notion of expanding the connectivity toggle slider in the G Pro handset. The updated user interface allows the user to view two QSlide applications at the same time. In total, there are seven applications that come equipped with pop-up window modes.
Single-Hand Mode: The G Pro comes equipped with a single hand mode whereby the user would be able to operate the handset with one hand, by shrinking the keyboard or dialer onto the left and right side; depending on the hand that user is using to operate the handset.
Additional Features: Besides the single hand mode, the user can opt for the split-screen regime, which divides the display in two landscape orientations, which enables the user to type on the massive screen.
