The wallet-friendly, 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1320

Think a phone has to be "mini" to be affordable? Think again. Nokia's Lumia 1320 comes in at just $340 smackaroos.

Windows Phone all the way

Outfitted with Windows Phone 8 Update 3, the ultralarge phone sports the OS' new three-column view.

Screen real estate

There are definite benefits to reading and surfing the Web on a larger screen. While Nokia makes it affordable, the 720p HD resolution is a little lower than optimal for such an expanse.

Unibody design

You can pop off the back cover to add a microSD card up to 64GB, but you won't be able to remove the battery.

Flash point

Continuous autofocus and an LED flash are good things here. Even though it's a lower-resolution overall, most photos taken on the Lumia 1320's 5-megapixel camera won't disappoint.

Power up

The power button, volume rocker, and camera shutter button line up along the phone's right side.

In profile

The Lumia 1320 has pleasing dimensions for a phone of its size. The matte back and slightly curved back make it easy to hold and smudge-free, though its smooth surface is slippery at times.

Tight fit

Unless you have loose pockets, good luck cramming in the 1320.
