Nokia’s Lumia 1320 was
announced way back in October of 2013
, but it is just now reaching U.S. shores. Cricket Wireless announced this week that the smartphone would be available on its network starting tomorrow for $229 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Most importantly, that price is for a device not tied to an annual contract.
As for the Lumia 1320, its most impressive spec is its gargantuan display that measures a whopping 6 inches. However, everything else is decidedly “run of the mill” starting with the fact that the 6-inch display is only 720p. Other features include a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of storage, microSD expansion slot, and a 5MP rear camera.
The Lumia 1320 of course runs Windows Phone 8, but will be
upgradeable to Windows Phone 8.1
when it is released.
"With the Nokia Lumia 1320 we are providing big value to customers at a budget friendly price," said Andy Smoak, Cricket Wireless AVP of Product.
For those that are underwhelmed with the Lumia 1320’s specs, the Lumia 1520 also features a 6-inch display, but bumps the resolution to 1080p and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.

You're right, there's no point at all. Don't buy it and be happy...
Would you rather watch a movie on a 720p 70" TV, or a 1080p 20"? I know which one I would prefer.
If I made an OP starting with "What's the point to this phone omg bla bla", you and Mitch would have tried to roast me alive for "hating" Microsoft. It's bizzaro world.
Just...I don't need your BS on a Friday, have a good weekend.

720p would look attrocious at 70 inches, with enormous pixels, plus it wouldn't display 1080p content at native res, so, no, I would not want that option. But I was speaking about screen real estate anyway, not that your reading comprehension would allow you to realise that. More and more websites are being made with 1080p in mind, and end up needing sideways scrolling on less, unless you want to be stuck with an often less functional mobile version of the site. A larger screen and a higher res seem to go together.
