Our pal and National Geographic photographer Stephen Alvarez took a trip to Rio De Janeiro to capture the beautiful landscape using a Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520, both equipped with PureView technology.

In order to win a Lumia 1520 we posed a question: What are the seven reasons why you want (or need) a Lumia 1520?

Nearly 400 comments later, we’ve selected the winner.

Step up Maurice Festejo and claim your prize!

“Seven reasons I love/want/need Nokia Lumia 1520

  1. Its sleek and gorgeous uni-body design really stands out.
  2. It has the most outstanding screen. Colors are vibrant but accurate. Watching videos and viewing photos really is a delight. And with Nokia’s ClearBlack Technology, the 6-inch 1080p display of this smartphone is indeed unmatched.
  3. Its camera is DIVINE! With the 20 megapixel Pureview camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Optical Image Stabilization, capturing your happy and your most intimate moments with your family and loved ones is a joy to do.
  4. With the MS Office integration, you can work anytime, anywhere with this phone.
  5. This is the first Nokia Phone to have high-end internals. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.2 ghz, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. All those specifications may not be necessary for a Windows Phone but it greatly improved the users’ experience.
  6. The battery is sensational. This phone can easily survive a whole day use with still some juice left before going to bed.
  7. Simply the best.”

“Voted for younesdesign because I really like the contrast of the shadows and bright light on the snow, and the faint glint of the wood grain in the sun against the darker areas of wood. A really good pic, just like they all are, but this one stood out for me, I’d happily set that as a desktop/lock screen background”

Winners, congratulations! We’ll be emailing you shortly to arrange delivery.

Thanks again to the winners and also to everybody who participated in these competitions. Look out for our next one!
