I take many pics with this phone and no other camera phone comes close. This is the best you can get. Waiting for Lumia 1330 now.

I bought it in December 2013. Apart from a small crack on the screen which I don't know how it came about, the phone is super and smooth, especially after the upgrade to denim.

its actually personal preference.
I m not satisfied with windows os.
as I used many android set previously..
windows is faster than android but app gap frustrated me .
and the available app of windows is inferior than android.
for example..
I use opera mini but no option of saving a page.
No customizable keyboard, Dialer.
when I send multiple msg,in delivery reports it only shows mobile no rather than name.
contact transfer is hazardous.
No power amp music player (my fav)
Mobile get hot when playing game unlike andro..
Camera is OK ..but I desired more.
as I thought its 41 mp will be on par with digicam.
but in indoor program pic becomes blurr when zoom..
Anyway good luck with or lumia.
waiting for windows 10.

My experience since 2014

Best: camera, camera, camera
Good: build quality, very quick charge
Neutral: size, weight, screen, sound
Bad: maps, synchronisation, battery life, built-in memory only, slow photo shooting
Worst: wpOS (and it can't be cured)

Now I'm switched back to Android but left 1020 as a souvenir in memory of Nokia

I was recovering windows 8 in Nokia 1020. I installed Nokia software tool. I updated my Nokia 1020 from 8.0 to 8.1 by mistake. Which I don't want. Now camera takes more times to save the pics, quality of images inferior in 8.1 OS. Internet explorer closed down automatically. Can I downgrade my windows phone from 8.1 to 8.0 is?

> In reply to Reifer15 @ 2015-04-19 00:04 from rjk2 - click to readI have both the 1020 and 930. No complaints after a long time of use. Both are very good phones, the 930 is definitely more future proof because of the hardware, the 1020 still is the phone with the best camera. Between those two phones I think they will cost about the same.
What about the 925, it is only available with 16GB of which a part will be used by the OS. so if you already have 8GB of music, I might suggest you to either go for a 32GB 1020 or 930, or a Lumia 830 which has micro SD.

I don't know what phone to buy:
Nokia Lumia 830
Nokia Lumia 925; love the design but no memory card. Is the memory a problem? (I current have 8GB music on my phone)
Nokia Lumia 930; but I read a lot of negative comments.
Nokia Lumia 1020; also negative comments.

I like Windows OS and I am a big Nokia fan but I can't decide which one to buy.
I would like exposition of the positive and negative of this phones. Thanks

My first phone. Starts with nexus 5 then I change to LG g2. But later on sell the two lg devices and get this Lumia 1020.

Camera is only the best on this device.
