Here’s a neat comparison by PhoneArena of Nokia Lumia 1520 with Google Nexus 5.
Almost every aspect of the device is compared and without any doubts Lumia 1520 tops most of them. However I kind of disagree with certain things on Camera front and so do the reviews.

‘MoliPlayer Pro’ for Windows Phone – plays almost anything (avi, mkv, mp4, h.264, rmvb, wmv, flv, ts, m2ts, and vob.)
Love watching videos on your Lumia ? – It would be rare that you would not have faced difficulties because they come in multiple formats and of-course not all of them are natively supported.
And then you look at a 3rd party solution for it .. which is when ‘MoliPlayer Pro’ comes in to the picture, an all format local Video & Audio Media Player.
One app on Windows Phone that needs frequent updates is none but Microsoft’s very own Skype and unfortunately it has not been the case. Skype on Windows Phone has not been up to the expectations with users reporting issues with Notifications, Background operations, Battery drain & Heating.
It’s not that Microsoft is overlooking the issue but is very well aware of it and has infact vowed to get it fixed plus it has planned fun things for Skype with the upcoming WP8.1 update.
Another much awaited device from Nokia after Lumia 1520 is none other than the Lumia 929. Now infact Lumia 929 is specific to Verizon in US but there is a rumor that a global version of it is in the works.
That said, interestingly a user in Mexico has been able to purchase a Lumia 929 (which though can be a proto too) & has posted some pics of it. It is running on the latest Windows Phone version aka GDR3/Update 3 .. version 8.0.10501.127.
