Still there is a stupid ppl buying windows. Why not turn to ios. It has the speed,not ram and battery hungry, buttery smooth and the secured of windows but the Tons of apps of android.ios has the best of the two world. Unfortunately apple has the most outdated spec which makes it lose to samsung.
ralkap, 16 Aug 2013In laymans term polycarbonate is PLASTICYes it's plastic but is more robust and more premium than iPhone's aluminium.
If its 980 in china then its 1300 in my country. And considering the minimum wage here is less than 400 then this phone is beyond the reach of 85% of the population.
the price is a lil bit over.
ok it has a gr8 cam and runs a so-so os
but with that price i can buy cannon 5d mark ii or nikon D3100 a proper dslr.
well anyway good luck nokia
ps:htc one and lumia 920 user
Oh Nokia should not complain about 512MB of RAM for WP, because they them self took like 12 full years to jump to 256MB of RAM on Symbian, that too by force when market rejected them badly lol, world was embracing dual core and quad core they are happy with ancient generation ARM6 600MHz CPU, its only WP forced them for even 512MB ram otherwise they are comfortable with only 256MB lol, though Nokia 1020 has 2GB and they are forced for it for imaging to work there.
Nokia dying dogs death, they deserve it, when you are so fool that Samsung is making both Android and WP and you stuck your self only with WP, you are bound to fall, at best WP is like iOS, and OS with limitations and no app resource to back it.
Quick Jump to Android and with heavy Specs is only cure for Nokia,that too now or never, note my words folks, WP is proven fail.
Locally I can get the Galaxy S4 Zoom for about 460 USD. In what way would the 1020 be worth almost twice?
Nokia's hardware is state-of-the-art. It's analogous to Porsche or Ferrari. Other phones are just like Toyota and Hyundai.
Paying 980$ is completely meaningless..! Just buy something like HTC One, S4 or any better phone with fair price.! These Nokia people are also doing what the iPhone 5 did. Because the iPhone 5 is a real worst phone I've ever seen.!
popye, 15 Aug 2013Do you realize that the iPhone 5 is an overpriced piece of junk? It's a highend phone with spe... moreThat's your own thinking dude. Not everyone feel that just having a 41MP camera on a smart phone is good. Most of the iPhone users are going for a decent camera phone for taking photos of food or group parties. Why the need to spend so much for a smart phone with lousy OS but 41MP camera?? Not to mention of the long processing time between shots on 1020, hence missing lots of important moments. I bet they will rather enjoy the good user experience for a phone, then just for the sake of a camera. I will rather use the same amount of money for a good micro 4/3.
popye, 16 Aug 2013Smart people will, not idiots. Smart people know the true value of what they buy while idiots ... moreSmart people?? Just for a smart phone camera, but nothing else?? With such expensive price, I rather get a good micro 4/3 which can perform even more than the Nokia Pro cam. Have you see how grainy the photos are for 1020?? 41MP is not everything you know? But is your money after all, so, all up to you to spend.
z, 16 Aug 2013they must be joking? what idiot gonna give $980 for a nokia...Smart people will, not idiots. Smart people know the true value of what they buy while idiots pay a high price for the brand name and logo alone.
