Summary: I love this phone. The camera is sick, 41 mega pixel. You can't go wrong with this. I think this is better than the iphone 6. I didn't want to get an iPhone 6 due to the expense. The Nokia Lumia 1020 wasn't expensive as the galaxy or the iPhone and I enjoy the windows interface. If you never own a windows phone then it will be hard to use. And I think now, all of windows laptops are being converted to windows 8 so the new windows is every where you go.
Summary: The phone meets my expectations. In particular the camera and the camera related apps are great. Updates to WP 8.1 incl. Cyan (8.12.xxx) were available and automatically downloaded. The WP 8.1 Update update seems not to be available.
Phone is nice. Feels better than my old i phone 4s ...

Summary: I bought this phone mainly because of the camera. Phone is nice. Feels better than my old i phone 4s or the samsung S3. But have to take time to get used to the windows system. It's not that simple to use as I phone. And there are very few good Apps to download. And I hate the earphone. It never stays on, drop off easily. I really hate it. I use my old iphone's earbud instead, thought it can not control this phone's volume or on/off.
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: I received the phone as promised. Occasionally it locks up but I see that others have had that problem too so it is not TronicSpot's fault. I am having trouble buying unlock codes for it. My guess is that the phone is not from USA but someplace like Hong Kong. AT&T flatly refused to give me the unlock code. Further, cellunlocker.com and another unlock firm could not find the unlock code in their AT&T database.
Decent. The phone fits my personality, but may not please you.

Summary: I like the phone. Arrived on time. Good camera. Speaker sounds great! The ear speaker is soft sounding. The phone responds slow compared to iphone phones. If you are willing to sacrifice user interface for the camera, then this is the phone for you. However, if you want a slick, easy to use, quick, light, and good all round phone, get an iphone.
Summary: Great camera. Okay amount of apps. Some user interface is badly configured and the phone sometimes is sluggish. Took a while to get use to the phone because I never used a windows phone and I came from being an apple product user. The only major complaint is the call quality is sometimes very iffy. Otherwise, the phone is growing on me.
