Adel J, 19 Nov 2013As a 1020 owner,
your review was missing one more thing HONESTY. Dude thank your god it's ... more"Honesty",
"seriously bashing your credibility with such lies"
Why are you being so judgemental, after all is a damn device. Yes this is a FORUM, where we can freely share reviews and you with your imprudent bashings. Those were my honest opinions, am tired of changing phone and intended to keep 1020 for a long time, apparently seemed as a perfect phone, but no more.
Please limit your views about the device and dont get personal. Support it by posting what you like and dislike and not attacking poster's credibility! Grow up.
If you consider it insincere, mark it out. Noise indeed is a issue and Nokia has accepted it widely. Sluggishness is there too, try holding shutter button and see the latency between consecutive shots. Compare dark photos with lumia 920, use the phone don't worship it!
Been using the Lumia 1020 for about 2 weeks now. I had used the 808 in the past but switch to an android device because i needed the smartphone part. Lumia 1020 is everything i wanted in a phone, signal strength is very good, audio quality is amazing the OS has a very well though interface. The camera is an absolute jewl - not much more i can say about it. Buy it!!!

mu96XT, 18 Nov 2013Stop wondering and get back to senses. This review was after extensive testing, had a Lumia 92... moreTrue, I am one of the 920 owners who have upgraded to the 1020. the amazing gadget!!!
Used 1020 for two weeks, then changed to 925 and satisfied now. Befor that used iPhone5 for 9 months and 808 before that. For calling and picture taking 808 was the best phone i have had but all another was very slow. I felt 1020 nothing special compare to 808 regading camera, so why have anothet hump phone...
Lumia 925 is very good compare to iP5, does all the same and call quality is much better. I thought will keep 1020 as last independent Nokia pone like souvenir but for me it was not worth that, so I will keep 808 forever.
Typo error in my review post: 1050 is mistype for 1520 Lumia the upcoming 30mpx phablet by Nokia.
Stop wondering and get back to senses. This review was after extensive testing, had a Lumia 920 before it and I believe most buyers of 1020 are 920 upgrades. This review was intended for them, not frolicking brand aficionados. Not a worthy upgrade, though 1520 holds promise.
Sold recently my Lumia 1020 for following reasons, after 1 month of extensive usage:
1- NOISE: It is obvious in every pic day/night, the algo exaggerates the sharpening thus creates excessive colored noise!
2-Light spots are reflected in lens, though 5 lens system was to alleviate this but its ineffective, try capturing a bright light source, inverted reflection is visible in rendered photo.
3- NOISE again for emphasis
4- Macro is hit and miss as minimum distance from source is 15+cm quite cumbersome!
5- Inter-shot latency is very high, taking pics as bursts is very slow, tried experimenting with thunderstorm, lumia 920 capturing is faster and better!
6- Two consecutive photos saved in 38mPx and 5mpx is illogical when the photos can be reframed later, takes memory, memory is fixed, unlike Lumia 1050!
7- Focusing distant objects in dark is failure, but manual focus is for assistance
8- Glance screen wallpaper beta images are pixelated and very poorly displayed compared to lumia 920.
9- Dark photography is no match to Triumph LUMIA 920, a classic. Pictures appear darker and dull.
Overall, it seems Nokia's haste in releasing it timely created a waste. Since beyond the 4x Zoom its a let down in all aspects. This kind of processing required a areno 800 cpu, 2gb ram and 330 gpu for smooth performance. The Camera Pro UI, photo capture, Saving all is SLOW, adding RAW image capture will exaggerate it further! Nokia hasn't learnt from 808 Pureview's sluggishness! This camera was bound for 1050!
1020 is buying time, marketing stunt! Switched to Lumia 625 Red for all other Nokia exclusives and WP OS!
