Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

 

Writing a review about Lumia phones gets challenging after a point since apart from a couple of distinct features, they are essentially very similar. The fact that Microsoft has the hardware and other components locked down tightly means there's no...

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus SoC (MSM8960) which consists of a dual-core CPU running at 1.5GHz and 2GB of RAM. The interface is smooth for the most part but we found that Nokia’s Pro Cam app slightly sluggish when tinkering...

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.

"IF YOU TAKE YOUR SMARTPHONE CAMERA SERIOUSLY, YOU SHOULD REALLY CONSIDER THE LUMIA 1020" Nokia raised many eyebrows in the tech world by announcing its Lumia 1020 would come with a 41MP camera as most smartphones tend to have cameras that range in the...

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

 

We should warn you: If you've ever read a Nokia or Windows Phone review before (like the Lumia 928), you might feel a sense of déjà vu reading this review. Though it's packing a powerful new camera and a fancy four-digit number, everything else about...

Best smartphone camera available ; Gorgeous AMOLED screen ; Great exclusive apps ; Good sound volume ; Clear call quality

Windows Phone 8 lacks certain apps ; Windows Phone 8 still has some quirks ; No microSD card support ; Battery is not removable ; Expensive $300 price tag

The Lumia 1020 has the best camera available on a smartphone, but AT&T subscribers will have to pay a hefty $300 premium to get it.

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.

At 11PM last Friday night, Yankee Stadium exploded.

Spectacular camera ; Great battery life ; Solid performance

Big and awkward ; Photography ecosystem is weak ; Hard to get at full-size photos

The cameraphone to end all cameraphones

Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 1020 raises the bar for smartphone cameras with its 41-MP sensor and prosumer controls, but the price is somewhat steep.

Sharpest photos ever from a phone; Pro Camera app provides lots of creative control; Great flash; Bright and colorful display; Optional Camera Grip offers DSLR-like feel

Bulky backside; Noticeable lag on shutter and shot-to-shot time; Windows Phone still trails in apps and features; Pricey; Too many separate photo apps

The Nokia Lumia 1020 raises the bar for smartphone cameras with its 41-MP sensor and prosumer controls, but the price is somewhat steep.
