Sad is that most of the people are going to buy this phone because of camera and inspite of WP8.
Jabu, 12 Jul 2013If wishes were horses,lol......You r wrong. We need serious competitor to work out good devices, If apple hv'nt come out with iphone in 2007. I think Nokia in still having a good time sleeping & dreaming their r still No:1. Samsung, Apple, Nokia, Sony..& d rest r moving at a faster than ever innovation in this 3yrs if compare to the last decade. Just as Nokia CEO quoted (We need to fight!) that's y they choose WP8. It's fresh.
It is much easier for Nokia to go for Android, but Nokia choose d harder way.(love it) fight to improve rite??
No doubt this is definitely d rite choice for future, It's all in 1 Windows eco system. From desktop pc to tablet & mobile phones. May be all those who bash r so afraid of Windows phone succeed cos they cant produce d decent 1 haha..
Alot people say that this phone doesn have java ,adobe flash
pls ,now is html 5 ,why still need java and flash ,LOL
Microsoft has all the potential to develop WP until the point that massive moves from Android to WP happen. Nokia's been a key success factor for MS during these early stages by attracting people with build quality, camera and exclusive apps, but i think it'll come a day when WP will have many edges toward Android.
okay...if nokia use android so RIP samsung..
and nobody perfect even smartphone!!!!
Raj, 12 Jul 2013Wow...so much discussion in a single day...this shows the success of this phone...In fact I am... morethey are now afraid that WP8 is gonna kill android phones esp the top dogs samsung and sony!
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2013Well not for me, they dont even have the most popular apps (eg instagram/subway surf). You can... moreFYI, the birth of android took place in late 2007. since 6 years it could make just 800,000 apps, it took 6 years to make it 800000 apps,WP8 birth took place in late 2012 and already the count of apps to 160000 in just a year....so u tell me who is growing faster????
n most of ur crapdroid apps are bullshit....are there merely even 300000 usefull apps besides TR2,subway surfers????
and even have u installed the so called 800000 apps on ur phone ever????oh i am sorry, u need an extra ram for ur laggdroid!!!
S4 Zoom- Ugly and Bulky...full on crap,
HTC Ultra pixels Total FAIL,
iPhone 5- Worst than the above two..
Android may be the God of OS, but coming to Camera smartphones the only GOD is NOKIA....be it N8,808,920 or 1020...silly android cheap phones yet produces common "8MP/13MP" cameras!!!
Wow...so much discussion in a single day...this shows the success of this phone...In fact I am seeing huge traction of android fans too...I m sure now they might be thinking to change the fan club 😄
Epic device from Nokia ... and wp8 is moving forward and prove that it's great OS and can supports huge camera sensor and 2gb RAM(some people doubt if wp8 could support this specs) ... and make u proud and brilliant cuz u have a dual-core smartphone that don't lag.
this flagship will be huge hit after the fail of galaxy s4 (Samsung confirmed that with the announcement of Samsung S4 Advanced after just 2 months and deceiving consumers... I believe that samsung followers lost some of their confidence in samsung)
and after the fail of Ultrapixel of HTC One (HTC said that every 1 ultrapixel equals 8≈13 megapixel...and it was just a liar and they removed this liar from their website)
Lumia 1020 have some advantages over Lumia 920 :
41MP xenon flash and led flah Vs 8.7MP dual Led flash
2nd Generation OIS Vs 1st Generation OIS
158 grams vs 185 grams
Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Vs Corning Gorilla Glass 2
2GB RAM Vs 1GB RAM
and remember...u are buying a smartphone not a ps vita or 3ds or FHD screen or PC and quad-core in a phone is not primary as long as it doesn't allow u to do heavy tasks like PCs
people are negative when they lack knowledge, nokia has stamped its authority,showed it is not a follower its a leader, iphone , nokia made for people who demand greatness...im dissapointed in sony i used to think cyber shot was going somewear
I will buy one for myself and one for my wife.When will it reach South African Shores?.I Love Nokia Lumia 1020.Not the Samsung Zoom with it's substantial WEIGHT.LOL
AnonD-101842, 12 Jul 2013camera Will never be the main selling point for smartphones, there is already way Better camer... moreand can you make call and use gps,etc with those better cameras...these phone has its own target audience...it is not even close to being the best smartphone..but it certainly is the best cameraphone(yet)..
