I do not have any ideas why I still love Nokia. It is like something there I can have something special. I think 1020 is something special. You have now as well normal OS..but yes price is high. Need some time. And people who talking about ..buy a camera instead..they are stupid. Why I need extra things if I can make a calls, take a super quality photos, read an email and etc. just taking my phone. that is a future and by Nokia.
Expected nokia should looking for android,but nokia never gave up.
Very nice device but have one concern. 32gb storage and NO SD card slot - what happens when you run out of storage, do you pay high data fees to Telco's and buy additional storage from Microsoft SkyDrive to upload photos & videos when travelling or is still cheaper to simply buy a cheap phone and a decent DSLR from Sony, Nikon or Canon? I suspect Nokia is dancing to Microsoft's tune forcing consumers to the CLOUD and subscription software solutions. The 1020 is tempting but for the time being I'll stick to my DSLR and continue use a cheap phone just for making phone calls. It's certainly a more cost effective solution to paying high data fees and risking a bill shock and paying Microsoft for storage space over and above 7gb.

I've had 808pv and its camera was 'great' not 'good'. Ios has absolutely no edge toward Wp. Android in reality makes one's life not easier at all, nothing more than marketing gimmicks help android sales. Lumia line? It's not so good, it's simply the best available, sure it must improve and get still better.
First of all none of you have said anything remotely interesting or even helpful regarding this phone. Granted a 41MP camera as well as Zeiss glass is a massive bonus for a smartphone. But it still runs Windows.. Simply put, your running on a closed system just like IOS but with terrible support in terms of Apps and even worse when it comes to development. Android are at the moment the better O/S to use. As far as brands of phones go i have tested EVERY Lumia to be released before the release dates and if your looking for a phone that is easy to use and has a good camera.. Good not great...then i would go for it. But looking for something to rival the flagship Apple or Samsung handsets.. no where near. Remember if you want a camera Buy a DSLR..
Nokia just posted on their facebook page 'sth big is landing tomorrow'
I agree, that is why I'm hoping the price will drop a little, but probably not. Cause for those who want the best Lumia and not necessarily a 41MP cam, there's the 920/925...
nokia has the most durable phones and everlasting engine!!!! believe me nokia is the best and lumia 1020 is a blast ..
I am using HTC 8s window phone there no heat up problem with this phone but it's having hanging problem
iron.man, 21 Jul 20131020 has the largest BIS sensor on any consumervdevice,it will be better than the slightly lar... moreFirstly, I want to say sony offers an inch bis sensor cam at $600-700.
And while im excited with ois, i want to see a proper review before deciding whether much smaller bis is better than bigger fis.
And im pretty sure gpu has a lot to do with the image processing, nevertheless im gonna wait till hardware gets better for faster capture time.
Also the phone has to be thinner because its bigger. I dont want to carry a large screen phone to take pictures.
future updates(software and hardware)are going to b excellent.1020 has already built a class.i guess their next flagship-1080p support could be simply called lumia 1080.
Ok here's the reality of technology. In a ever growing and expanding world of knowledge there will always be a marginal response to new and innovative ideas. So in the World Market Place there is always a newer better faster cost effective way to get the latest information, version, design or device to the Consumer. What is Todays latest news will be gone in three to six weeks. Nokia Lumia Series WP8 Smartphone's are the future of Audio Video and Telecommunications. You have the Freedom of Choice... Use it Wisely..
