Also updates have fixed the lag. It only lasts for like 3 seconds on my phone. For people who complain about such a little thing like lag, have never used a android phone or they hate android & that's the only thing they can bash about it.

You must be joking for paying such price just for a windows 8 phone!

I hope it will not end up like another Surface Windows RT.

...not to mention, $750 on any android phone is pretty well just $750 of lag. its like a digital turtle.

Horribly expensive...Nokia change your pricing there are a lot of aggressively priced smartphones that can give even Lumia 3040 whenever & if at all it comes!!
Frankly speaking for a company that has got dwindling sales Q on Q..its asking price is a tad too much,coz most of the target crowd that you have in mind is camera purists who will be torn in making up their minds to get a DSLR at that price....& after the hype you anyways have given away your previous Lumia's for nothing!!

Would've been worth it, if the camera had been good, but the camera does not come close to 808 PureView. It's like a jacked up 920.

Fail Nokia.

> In reply to X @ 2013-07-15 16:28 from Am9Y - click to readyes the there is nothing wrong with the images,and videos are neither official nor caught by gsmarena(the review also says that),they just posted some videos on the internet claiming to be from 1020,they can be fake or from a prototype-" We are
also pleased to report that the blurring
along the right side of the frame, which is
visible on the samples wasn't present on
our unit so it is definitely due to a
imperfect prototype unit." ...atleast have care to read the review before commenting on videos in it
