2. Nokia Lumia 930
If the big screen of 1520 is a bit too much for you, you can go with the Lumia 930 which packs exactly the same specifications but comes equipped with a smaller 5 inch OLED display. This makes the 930 a tad more portable than 1520. You still get the same gaming experience and processing power to play games like blackjack, Halo Spartan assault and so on.
It shall, however be noted that the 930 lacks micro SD card which means you will not be able to expand internal storage like the Nokia Lumia 1520.
