I have an iPhone 5 and my son has the 5S. They really are good phones but, in my opinion, not of the same physical build quality of Nokia, even though Nokia is plastic.
iOS7.1 runs fairly smooth but Apple does not live up to expectations. The 1020 is by far superior as a phone, also as a handheld PC with native Office apps, it is by far a more secure OS than iOS and then there is the camera that is just light years ahead of iPhone.
I always used Iphones and last year I got a Lumia 1020 because I love taking pics but was linda dessapointed with the OS so 4 months after I got the Iphone 5S and 2 months ago I switched back to my Lumia 1020. You have to learn how to enjoy Windows Mobile and now I know and Im very satisfied so I use both phones. Lumia1020 with my personal mobile number and the iphone 5s with a data sim.
Hopefully the waiting for WP 8.1 won't take too long. I have two phones to upgrade to WP 8.1 and I barely can't waiting what this new update all brings.
I have got a Nokia Lumia 1020 since two months. Apart from two or three random reboots, I haven't had any problems and the overall experience has been very positive. But today, although the phone worked fine throughout the day and the battery was at 56%, it suddenly ceased to show signs of life. The charging didn't help. Of course, I found the solution in the internet. The solution consists in holding the volume down button and the power button together for 10 seconds, release them and then the phone reboots. It seems that the phone "needs" occasional manual reboots. It's a bit strange and unexpected issue.

We'll see whether there's gonna be a 1080 soon, but to be honest I don't expect the successor to follow anythime soon. I think first we will see a Lumia 930 and some midrange Lumia devices, probably a 1080 in the autumn, but that's my guess. Meanwhile, we can enjoy the 1020's great performance.
