Summary: This is a great camera and calling device! The camera quality and functionality is absolutely excellent! However, due to the size of each picture taken, 32GB of memory is quickly exhausted. There is no memory extension slot. I really did enjoy my Lumia until one day (6 months old) the phone just shut down, and refused to be charged or restarted... I am now burdened with an iPhone 5s which by the way is way below par when compared to the 1020...
Summary: Broadband bandwidth only comparable with AT&T & Verizon. Not with my service, T Moble. I consulted with all three carriers and Nokia, but have not been able to unlock it. The seller is very upset, as I am, and withdrew the offering, which left him with hundreds of Nokia1020 still in stock. I don't blame him. He was lied to by Nokia supplier. Otherwise I like the camera phone, and wait for the seller to find a solution.
They probably need to learn how to embrace the developers community like Apple do

Summary: The seller did his job, Nokia did its job, but guess who did not? Microsoft !! The fact that lot's of necessities are still missing from the app store is either a shame or stupidity by Microsoft. Furthermore, Microsoft says they are not responsible for the developers or companies, if they do not develop the apps. They probably need to learn how to embrace the developers community like Apple do. Until then, this gadget is laying in my drawer, a waste of money.
Summary: I returned this phone a couple days ago... First of all, the phone is well built, and very response with Windows phone 8 OS. Also... It has the best camera in the market. I was amazed with it. However, the the battery is horrible... It dies fast. Also, the cellphone's GPS is by far the worst of all platforms. It takes a while to set directions to a place to another.
