I love Nokia , 23 Sep 2013I planing to buy Apple 5s but after reading this review. I think I can go for Nokia 1020. Ok t... moreFP technology has been around for ages, also in cellphones a few years ago. A couple of things to keep in mind though. It's unrealiable and easy to trick.
Even if going with iphone, you would be better off using password.
Awesome review man..hats off!! I was always a Nokia fan and always will be.
I would like to congratulate you for your review! In this world full of haters ( who deep down inside will also miss Nokia ) your article praises what's best from this phone manufacturer that will be truly missed.
pureview was the swan song for symbian with the 808 and now it's the same for the whole phone division with this 1020.
I planing to buy Apple 5s but after reading this review. I think I can go for Nokia 1020. Ok this night i will decide. But FP sensor is much advanced technolgy in A5. Because i dont like boring password. It will be new expreance just unlock your mobile with finger print.
finally i cant buy a fone just because this Finger print technology.
my last decisone is Nokia lumia 1020
just thank you gsma for a great review(as always), I hope we will see products from Nokia or at least companies pushing limits like Nokia was...
Correction: To enable loud speaker while listening to the FM Radio, just press and hold on the station and the pop-up box will display the option for you to select 'Switch To Speaker'.
The LG KU 990 Viewty has both Auto/Manual focus. So its not only the 1020 that has a manual focus.
Here is the conclusion by GSM
"Just like the still images, the videos produced by the Lumia 1020 are beyond the capabilities of any other smartphone on the market"
It trumps the competitions in photo, video, and (audio recording too because of high amplitude mics)
This is a wonderful farewell from Nokia. I believe while their business decisions were terrible lately that is a problem of their management which sunk the company. The technology they had was often amazing and 1020 shows it off better than any other phone.
Thank you so much for that conclusion. This review was so well written and I hope it will help others remember Nokia's last hurrah. The ending almost brought a tear to my eye. I will always remember that description, "one last view from the top".

I think a blind test is in order, downscale photos from all current flagships to 5mp and see which people like the most. Spoiler: Lumia 1020 will not be near the top.
