Review Nokia Lumia 1020 Smartphone

 

Camera or phone? With an almost absurd resolution of 41 megapixel

Great camera with 41 megapixels; Fine build quality; Sufficiently fast; LTE module

High retail price; Display resolution could be Full HD; Non-replaceable battery; No options for storage expansion

The main camera not only yields highly detailed pictures (due to its supreme resolution), but also superb ones in almost every respect. In addition, the camera comes with useful software features for all possible scenarios.

Nokia Lumia 1020 review: A photographer's smartphone

 

The Lumia 1020 has a truly impressive 41-megapixel camera and a high-quality 4.5-inch AMOLED screen, but many Windows Phone fans might do better with the 920 and a good dedicated camera.

Solid construction ; Best-in-class smartphone camera ; Big, clear screen ; Plenty of internal storage

Poor battery life ; Camera is still no match for standalone devices ; Expensive

The Nokia Lumia 1020 has a truly impressive camera capable of shooting decent photos. However, it's no substitute for a good standalone digital camera, and heavy use seriously depletes the battery. The Lumia 1020 certainly has appeal, but many users...

Review: The Nokia Lumia 1020 marries an amazing camera to year-old hardware

 

Nokia's latest Windows Phone packs an impressive 41-megapixel camera, but lacks a strong app ecosystem and competitive specs.

Solid and well built ; Exceptional camera

Lack of expandable storage ; Older hardware

Michael Homnick The Nokia Lumia 1020 faces an uphill battle: Not only is it competing against heavyweights such as the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5, but it is also fighting against the stigma surrounding the Windows Phone OS. The Lumia 1020 is an excellent...

That’s a Big Camera You Got There

 

The big, circular bump on the back of the Lumia 1020 is impossible to miss. Place the phone on a table and it rests at an angle, slightly propped up by the protrusion. Hold it in your hand and you're always fondling the circle's edges. But the phone's...

Nokia Lumia 1020 review

 

There was no shortage of stunned faces in the audience when Nokia CEO Stephen Elop announced the 808 PureView at Mobile World Congress 17 months ago. Who

Best-in-class imaging experience ; Good battery life ; Smooth performance ; Solid build quality and materials ; Beautiful display

Awkward and slightly uncomfortable to hold ; Has a few bugs

The Lumia 1020 is the best Windows Phone we've used so far and offers the best camera in the industry, though it's a little difficult to hold comfortably.

Spectacular camera ; Great battery life ; Solid performance

Nokia Lumia 1020 (AT&T)

 

The first viable 41-megapixel camera phone, the Nokia Lumia 1020 for AT&T is an impressive feat, but it's big, expensive, and doesn't run Instagram.

Best camera ever on a smartphone. Excellent manual camera controls. Easy-to-use OS.

Big. Expensive. Slow shot-to-shot times. Windows Phone is out of the mainstream for photo apps and communities.
