Just take a look again at this picture http://press.nokia.com/wp-cont...ighres-3.jpg
from Nokia own, and admire the noise and colour saturation at the mouth creases. Looks like a 8 bit colour picture!

Nikon Coolpix S9500 is much better than this highly priced crap. Thumbs down...

produced by the Lumia 1020 are beyond
the capabilities of any other smartphone on
the market. The detail levels are top notch,
the colors are extremely pleasing and the
dynamic range simply cannot be achieved
with a smaller sensor."----and any sane mind would trust it over a proven troll like you..why do you even try to do it...you are always the one who gets proven wrong in the end....and btw it will most probably get a 64gb version....

And less noise means that pictures and videos look better and occupy less memory. Why? Because noise is very hard to compress, a noisy picture or video will take up much more megabytes.

If you want to record 4K at the same pixel quality you'll have to multiply that with 4. But even at 17 MB/s, you get to use 17x60 MB, 1.02 GB of data per minute. So for sure the 1020 does not record video at high quality, otherwise it would fill those 32GB in half an hour of video.

in night photography 1020>808
Video recording (OIS) 1020>808
Audio Recording (HAAC) 1020>808

SO overall I think 1020 capabilities as a camera phone > 808

1020 vs 808

Compare the noise and grain. Look at the sky and how noise-free it is in 808.

808 > 1020.

The price is fine to me, since it is a combination of a smartphone and a dedicate camera, though I'm not a fan of WP

Even professional cameras have problems filming smoke and fog, if you record that smoke with Galaxy S4 of iphone 5 it will look ten times worse. Lumia 1020 records video in 8k resolution (7728 x 4354) then resizes (oversampling) the video to 1080p, resulting a nearly crystal clear 1080p video.

> In reply to LloydS @ 2013-07-15 18:27 from q{cQ - click to readI'm an android fan and have a Sony Xperia Sola running ICS. It lags like CRAZY. Opening an app, closing an app. Don't try to have more than one app open at a time, you'll be waiting for minutes trying to get it to do anything.

The Sola is a dual core phone with 512mb's of RAM. Not the best specs in the world but nothing to sneeze at either. So you say Android doesn't lag but that just doesn't reflect my actual real world experience. Lag is almost entirely based on the specs of your phone. Tried out my friends Galaxy SIII and barely noticed any lag at all.
