Reviews Word on the street for the Nokia Lumia 2520

The display has very wide viewing angles and it's protected by Gorilla Glass 2.

I could smoothly zip around Windows RT's interface, and apps opened just as quickly as they did on the Surface 2.

Specifically, it flaunts a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS LCD display, which equates to having a pixel density count of 218 ppi.



7.6 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Well, it’s no surprise that it handles 1080p videos with no fluff, especially when its sharp display complements the experience.

Speaking of the display, it's a gorgeous IPS full HD panel with Nokia's ClearBlack technology and it has an extremely high 650 nits of brightness, making it well suited to outdoor work.

Certainly, it’s a sharp looking thing that delivers crisp details from all angles – so there are no concerns about fighting over miniscule text with our eyes.

Operating System

Its weight of 615 grams complements it, as it is lighter than most Windows RT tablets (Surface 2, we're watching you) yet it is heavier than rival Android tablets and the iPad Air.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2013)
As always with Windows RT, the Microsoft app store casts a slightly gloomy fog over the tablet: the app selection can't compare to iOS and Android.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)
exe programs like Photoshop CS, Eclipse or Civ V. It comes with MS Office for RT pre-installed (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote) and it has the same desktop mode with Windows Explorer you'll find on full Windows 8.

Operating system

Windows 8.1 RT can't run Windows.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)
In a full Windows 8 tablet that can run traditional desktop programs that's less of an issue, but when your only recourse is the Windows Store, you'll feel the pain.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)
It's great that it comes with a full version of Microsoft Office - as all Windows RT tablets do - but because it's running RT, that also means it's incompatible with legacy Windows programs and lacks app support compared with Android and iOS.

As we’ve mentioned earlier, the Nokia Music app is also a pleasant alternative.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2013)
Nokia Music follows the model of pretty much every streaming-music service, including Xbox Music - which is also included - but goes one step further by allowing you to cache some songs for offline playback.

The staples of digital life are here, including Kindle, the Weather Channel, Netflix and a growing selection of games.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)


Happily, since the Snapdragon 800 chipset supports fast charging, the tablet is quick to charge.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)
Battery Exclusively relying on 4G LTE connectivity, the 8000 mAh battery inside of the Lumia 2520 delivers a battery life that we’re comfortable of getting nowadays.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2013)
The Lumia has an 8120 mAh Lithium Ion polymer battery that's sealed inside.
