Ever before i ordered for the phone,i thought the phone was a 5"inc smart phone,but i was disappointed when i saw that it was like the regular HTC 3:5 inc" phone....it would have been alot prettier if it had the size of the new TECNO PHANTOM A(F7) OR SAMSUNG GALAXY S4....moreover,the battery is not as strong enough as i envisaged......thumbs up to the CAMERA and screen display though.
after the Amber update, we can download the pro cam app. But how will the pictures be the same as the 925/1020 since thhey have an extra lens (6 instead of 5)
Thank god for Nokia, or the Win 8 phones would actually be in trouble. The quality apps are on the way every day, who gives a crap about having a million really. It's nice to see Nokia a doing the innovating while Apple is busy explaining why you don't really need that anymore. The Nokia 1020, with the advantage of all the Nokia apps, is outstanding. And It's nice to see that no one is even questioning the fact that the camera blows away the competition, it's not even close and probably won't be for quite some time to come. Kudos Nokia, and hurry up Instagram, I bet you will look really great on the platform, so move it along.
Here is my opinion, but first let me be as transparent as possible. I have a WP8 HTC 8X, as well as an iPad and wifey has an iPhone 5. I have used for years, BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android. I switched to Windows Phone for something different. I liked the UI and how it flowed. I have not regretted moving to WP. It's fast, efficient, logical and functional. I like Apple devices and Android devices but for some when I switched to WP, I don't feel the need to jump to a new device every 6 months. WP has some down sides - the adoption rate sucks so not many other people have one. The app selection is not on par with Apple and Android, although 95% of the good, quality apps are there (there just aren't 160 variants of a fart app). I use 3rd party Vine and Instagram apps and there is not a noticeable difference. If I was walking into a cell store to pick up a new device, today, I'd grab the Nokia 920/925/928 or the Nokia 1020 over the iPhone 5 or SG4 or Moto X or HTC One. If you are into photography, grab the Nokia 1020. The pics are amazing (search some Flickr sites). One WP feature I love but is rarely mentioned: the dedicated camera button. Bottom line: if you like rows of app icons and a beefier app universe, stick with Apple/Android. If you want to try something different, try the WP.

I love the phone for its aesthetics, it's lovely and beautiful to touch. However, mine has a really poor battery life, i wonder if anyone faces the same challenge out there with theirs'?
