Windows Phone 8.1 offers a more personal smartphone experience that brings you closer to the people and things you really care about.

The Windows Phone 8.1 update for the Nokia Lumia 1520 includes awesome new features such as Cortana: a personal virtual assistant built around you. Cortana is the only smartphone assistant who can set reminders by people, as well as by time or location.

She can remind you to thank your mom for sending that care package of cookies in the mail the next time she calls to check in on you.

Windows Phone 8.1also brings new capabilities in:

  • Personalization – Live Tiles with multiple sizes and color options let you pin apps, music and people to your Start Screen so you choose the information you want to be displayed in the way you want to see it.
  • Camera – The superb 20 Mpixel PureView sensor of the Lumia 1520 is now enhanced with new features and apps for enhancing and sharing your images.
  • One Windows – With OneDrive, Skype, Office and Bing, the Windows experience is reinvented across all your screens—phones, tablets, PCs and Xbox—so you can shoot, share, work and play wherever you go.
  • Xbox – With Xbox games, music and video in your pocket, you’ll have entertainment options on-the-go.
  • Efficiency – Windows Phone is optimized to help you do more, with the new Word Flow keyboard, Action Center for managing notifications and quick actions, and a new suite of device and data management tools.
