Engadget Summary

Outside of its 6-inch size, battery life and $340 asking price, nothing about the Nokia Lumia 1320 really stands out. Problem is, even though it's significantly cheaper than most large-screened phones out there, it's still in a no man's land where it's not quite affordable enough for emerging markets -- the Lumia 520 and 620 series are a much better deal, if you can stand the smaller screens. At the same time, it's not premium enough to compete against flagships, not even Nokia's own Lumia 1520.

In other words, the Lumia 1320 is very much a niche product. It will have a limited amount of appeal, catering to those who desire a large screen and/or long battery life and are willing to pay more than a normal low-end device to get it. Beyond that, there isn't anything that tempts us: It's a bit too heavy for our liking; there are still some wrinkles in performance that need to be ironed out; and you'll want to get a microSD card to ensure you have enough storage space for everything. Without any standout features, the Lumia 1320 is about as mediocre a smartphone as you can get -- and just about as forgettable, too.
