Unboxing the super green Lumia 1520 aka 'the Hulk' phone from AT&T

Last Friday, AT&T and Microsoft finally set the green Lumia 1520 loose as inventory went out to AT&T stores across the country. The green Lumia 1520 is no different from the currently available ones except for the bold, green color, and it is bold. I do not hesitate to label this green as nearly fluorescent because it is very audacious.

Although static promo shots tell one story, hands on video and some high-quality real photos tell another. Therefore, with that introduction, here is a quick look at the 'Hulk' Lumia 1520, one of the boldest Windows Phones to date.

The hardware revision for this Lumia 1520 is the same, so if there are any minor improvements to this phone, they remain on the production side and not the device itself. I can say that the display sensitivity to scrolling versus taps is perfect so far, with none of the bad registrations that I experienced previously. Only time can tell if that continues, or if the hardware issue theorized to be the cause rears its head.

Other than that, this Lumia 1520 comes with Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan preinstalled, as expected.

The Lumia 1520 remains as one of my favorite Lumias to date, and this new-green version – although a superficial variation – makes it even better.
