Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 1020’s greatest feature is the 41-megapixel (MP) camera. This camera is not only the best among all Nokia mobile phones , it also has the highest resolution of any current smartphone camera in the market. With the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020, you’ll be able to take the type of high-quality photos typically only available with a DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera.
Excerpt: You've probably seen the commercials for the Nokia Lumia 1020 on TV. It's the Windows smartphone with like a trillion 41-megapixels that gives parents the ability to sit at the back of an school auditorium where instead of getting close to take pictures (and fight all the other smartphone-equipped parents), you simply take a photo from far away and then later crop down to the picture you need. You know, because 41 MEGAPIXELS!!!!
Summary: The Lumia 1020 is simultaneously projected forward by Nokia and held back by Microsoft. I just can’t rely on Windows Phone to get the job done. Nokia has done all it can — and that’s a lot, considering where Windows Phone would be without Nokia’s contributions — but it’s not enough to provide a better experience than iOS or Android.
Excerpt: If you're looking for a phone with the best available camera quality, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is for you.
Pros: Top-rated camera quality, Good display quality, Good speaker quality, Easy to navigate, Easy to read on
Cons: Subpar battery life, Processor is a bit dated, resulting in sluggish camera-response time, Consumer testers found the phone’s shape awkward, Less portable compared to smaller/slimmer phones in testing set, Windows app store is limited compared to Apple and Google Play stores
Nokia Lumia 1020: the best call making camera in town
8 March 2014
Excerpt: On a recent trip to Paris, I took some of the most amazing photographs that I had ever taken on a mobile device. The richness of the colours and the luxurious hues made my images come to life and, quite honestly, delicious to look at it. This was possible because the device I was taking those pictures on was the Nokia Lumia 1020. I am not going focus on this too much because if you’ve seen one Lumia device, you seen them all.
Summary: At 11PM last Friday night, Yankee Stadium exploded. I had been in section 209 for about two hours when Justin Timberlake started the first verse of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York.” The crowd roared, and then when Jay Z walked down the stairs rapping “Empire State of Mind,” the crowd went bonkers. It felt like every person in the stadium screamed, then thrust their hands into their pockets to grab their phone. I have to send this to somebody!
Pros: Spectacular camera, Great battery life, Solid performance
Cons: Big and awkward, Photography ecosystem is weak, Hard to get at full-size photos
PHOTOVIEW: Nokia Lumia 1020 41 Megapixel PureView Windows Phone 8
6 December 2013
Excerpt: Announced back in July , I finally got the chance to play a little bit longer with Nokia's Windows Phone camera flagship, the Nokia Lumia 1020 , which went first on sale in the U.S. The Lumia 1020 is the Windows Phone successor of the Symbian-based Nokia 808 and like its step-brother it's featuring Nokia's unique 41 megapixel PureView technology.
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a phone that Nokia felt required a companion. Thus they made the Camera Grip for the said phone and we didn't wait too long to bring these two friends together. Are they made for each other or is Nokia just perpetuating a relationship that just doesn't exist? We find out.
Pros: Convenient shutter button, Makes one-handed operation a breeze, Additional battery in grip for more shooting time
Excerpt: Not too long ago, we introduced you to the Final Word in smartphone cameras, the Nokia Lumia 1020. We were able to have a limited hands-on of the phone at the said event, but last week, Nokia was generous enough to loan us a unit for review.
