Wow! 41 MP camera! But where do I store those pics and
vids after using up the 26 GB of user-available internal memory with music and HD games? Yes the camera shoots and records @ full HD resolution, but I'm wondering how can I appreciate them if the display is not capable of showing them in HD? Com'n Nokia, you can do better than that. Don't make in installment your implementation of better technology if you want to matter and be significant in today's battle of phones. After all these years you still haven't learned the lesson of history and the manufacturing philosophy of other companies. Beauty and numbers, Nokia. Users don't give a damn about the meaning of the specs. What they know is the bigger the number, it must be better. And if course, don't forget that we are in the age that aesthetics matters. Make a phone that will let others drool upon. If you don't learn and follow the trend, you'll become obsolete and 2020 may be too long for you to stay as a brand.
iapple, 04 Aug 2013Great shame for Nokia that its using 720p display for a flagship device like this...At 4.5in, there is almost no difference from 720p to 1080p. With a 5.5 in then I can understand but not at 4.5in.
Best demonstration of Lumia 1020 camera so far. From a film maker.

Anonymous, 04 Aug 2013Hello mate, there's very slight difference between 720p and 1080p full HD and most people can'... moreWell… when you say "most people can't notice the difference between HD and Full HD", that is it; there must be some difference, right? It depends on each individual use case. If you're using it to watch video or scroll through photos on Facebook, it might not matter too much whether you're doing so on a 1080p display.
But if you devour e-books on the train ride home or have content that's catered to a 1920×1080 resolution, it may prove worth it.
This is what spec crazy people will look for; they want the latest best spec, this is again personal taste and preference. Let’s wait and watch in the near future if Nokia is going to release a phone with Full HD display or not.
I never said this is a bad camera phone, of course this is the best as of now we see in any smart phone because it has got a better sensor compared to its counterparts. All I’m saying is there is no need for 41MP to produce the best picture quality with the type of sensor that they have got in this phone.
About PPI, I didn’t say Lumia 1020 has bad PPI, I said it is pretty good at it but NOT THE BEST. When you say that ppi above 350 is irrelevant, there are various arguments about it, some say anything above 300 ppi is overkill and others say different numbers. Let it be whatever but still there are people die hard for over kill specs. Like many admire 41MP camera in this phone. Let it be any brand, do you really think that there is a requirement for 41MP camera in a smart phone? Having 400 or more PPI is also something like having a 41MP camera in a phone, isn’t it?
Genius, 04 Aug 2013Do you think that Nokia is getting weak? I think Nokia Asha 501 Lumia 520 has done very wel... moreWell, the Lumia 520 and the Asha 501 are pretty popular, they will make big numbers for Nokia if sales concerned. That is good of course, they can reserve that money again for other phones or new technologies. The Lumia 1020 is in my opinion pure for the niche market, it won't sell by big numbers, but it will sell to people who are interested in a super camera Phone.
SDev, 04 Aug 2013This is one of the best phones of Nokia, no doubt about that. But still it has got a long way ... moreHello mate, there's very slight difference between 720p and 1080p full HD and most people can't notice the difference between it. Full HD display for phones are a waste of battery. The ppi on this phone is sufficient and you know the human eye can't see above 350ppi, having more ppi is good but it strains the GPU due to which battery doesn't last longer. 41 MP isn't a trick. It has a 1/1.5" sensor size which is way better than most point and shoot cameras which have 1/2.3'' sensor size. Go to Nokia official website and download the Pure view white paper. It is the best camera phone till date and it has pro like settings in the camera, unlike other phones. It's amazing phone.
bras, 03 Aug 2013Im still waiting for this phone to be available here in PhilippinesThe owners of lumia 1020 say
This phone is better or iPhone or galaxy???
The Winphone have one of the worlds worst and ugliest homescreen in both computer and phone history.
Isn't there a possible to change those ugly squares with a nice background picture?
Also is there possible to change the squares (App startes/gadgets/Widgets) to some less ugly low-profile icons?
This is one of the best phones of Nokia, no doubt about that. But still it has got a long way to go... The screen is not full HD, ppi is pretty good but not the best, processor may be the best for W8; I'm not sure about that so I'm not talking about it. Then the GPU is old and built in battery capacity should have been better. Finally don't be lured with 41 MP, because sensor size, not megapixels, is what matters in any camera. Just Google it and you will find numerous articles like below: http://www.digitaltrends.com/photography/image-sensor-size-matters/
More pixels mean more the image/video size and to the worst it has got no memory card slot.
