More than a year after release, still a great phone

Summary: If you are an American, and not on Verizon, then the only true flagship available to you in November of 2014 is the enormous Lumia 1520 (a year old already). The Lumia 830 is not a flagship (217 ppi screen resolution is one of many shortcomings). That leaves the Lumia 1020. I will not review the phone itself here, since there are many reviews on the internet (mashable, cnet, engaget etc) that you can look at to learn what an amazing device this is.
Summary: I love the Lumia 1020, but there are a few problems. First, I ordered a brand new phone but when I received it, the box was pretty busted and I had a feeling that it may have been used or lightly used. I found scratches and small marks at the SIM card area and the camera button was covered with dust. I wouldn't have cared if the system and the battery was working properly. I've used this phone for almost a week now, and I already noticed a few problems.
Summary: This phone is amazing. I didn't think I would like a Windows phone at first. Mainly because my sister has an older windows phone and it has many issues. But this phone works great once it's updated to windows 8.1. Cortana works amazingly and the phone doesn't freeze or slow down. I love it and am considering buying my grandmother a windows 8.1 phone. She can't figure her Android phone out, but she can pick this phone up and operate it with no problems. Very easy to use.
Summary: Ok yes I bought this phone for the camera, who doesn't? Out takes amazing pictures once you learn the Nokia camera pro instead of the auto snap and shoot. It's light, fits nice, smooth that hassle free operating especially if you are tired of your Android lagging or apples outdated features with a new number added to it. The phone is tough, but not too heavy longer my 920. Oh did I mention the great photos?
Summary: I love this phone. Camera is awesome and I use it to take tons of pictures. It also has a lot of software package that you can edit your pictures or do weird strange effects like nokia cinemagraph not seen on other phones. Windows is doing a great improvement with their OS. I really like it. This unlocked phone worked perfectly for me.
