The Verge reviews the giant Nokia Lumia 1520:

Samsung and others have proven that there is a market for giant smartphones, warts and all. But that doesn't mean that just any smartphone is better if it's bigger, and the 1520 is a prime example of that. It's bigger and faster than any other Windows Phone yet, but it's not necessarily a better Windows Phone because of that. If all you've ever wanted in life is a Lumia 925 with a magnifying glass on top of it, the 1520 is exactly that. It's a tour de force in resolution and speed, but it's not a great smartphone or even a great replacement for a tablet.

And yet, it'll be a better tablet than any Windows 8.1 RT device. There's something poetic about that.

I don't like it. Windows Phone clearly isn't optimized to take advantage of the real estate with compelling pen support (as opposed to Windows RT with fantastic handwriting support) and it seems even bigger than a Note 3 which is laughable and a miss for Nokia imo.

Looks like a rushed product. Try again.
