Nokia Lumia 1020 review

 

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.

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

We've been waiting a long time for the 808 PureView to get a Windows Phone counterpart with the same (if not better) imaging prowess. Finally, it's here. Now that we've had the opportunity to use the device, we can confidently say that the Lumia 1020...

Nokia Lumia 1020 review: 41-megapixel photos, for a cost

 

With its 41-megapixel camera and creative photo controls, the slim-for-what-it-is Nokia Lumia 1020 will hook avid photographers.

The ; smartphone's camera captures extremely high-resolution images with fine detail, and puts creative controls at your fingertips.

A niche device, the Lumia 1020 is $100 pricier than most high-end smartphones. The lens makes it a little bulky. Multiple camera apps are confusing. It lacks manual f-stop control and presets for common shooting scenarios.

Avid mobile photographers will love the Nokia Lumia 1020's exact controls, but casual users should stick to cheaper camera phones.

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...

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...

Spectacular camera ; Great battery life ; Solid performance

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

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.

Nokia Lumia 1020 review:

 

You can sum up the Nokia Lumia 1020 in three words: 41, megapixel, camera.
