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.
Here is a Lumia 1020 demonstration from the film maker Jason Gregory. Amazing camera and software. Blows all other smartphone camera away.
Oh my God!!!!!!
No wonder they named it ''most innovative smartphone''
With the new Lumia 1020, catch the pureview xperienc on a highspeed gadget.
Lumia 920 is a better better phone. With 41MP of cam on the new 1020, gaming, video, snap shots are all yours.
I saw guys comparing phones, i bet you, no phone in world can be compared to the ne Nokia Lumia 1020
[deleted post]Samsung Galaxy S4 has two quad core processors, that's true. One is an A7 and the other one is A15. The processor simultaneously switches to A7 for easier tasks and A15 for heavier tasks and it generates heats a lot due to which recently a building in Hong Kong was burnt just because of Samsung Galaxy S4. Even with two CPUs, Samsung Galaxy S4 lags in basic applications such as gallery, contacts, dialer, camera and other stuff. Do you think smart scrolling is an innovative technology? I bet you do but i don't. It doesn't even work properly. Here is a link which states the Samsung Galaxy S4 cheats in benchmarks.
Most of the ideas to create Android OS was copied from Symbian OS. Android OS is resource hungry, RAM guzzling, bad quality apps filled in Play Store, Google gives you free apps which are adwares to earn money in exchange for your private data, Google spy on users and Google illegaly sends user data to NSA officials. Android tends to lag as it always runs apps in background(though you can close them but then again those apps gets restarted), in Android, any Tom and Harry with a PC can create an app or a virus and make it look legit and if you download it once then your privacy will be invaded. Some permissions that apps in Android requires are ridiculous, you know you're selling your private data for a free app. I, myself have two Android phones currently which i am bored of mostly due to the lags and crap apps. Windows OS is a real secure OS and i am buying a new Lumia after having used the Lumia 520 which was a fluid experience.
Do you think that Nokia is getting weak?
I think Nokia Asha 501 Lumia 520 has done very well over the last one week; but these are cheap phones compared to S3, S4, Xperia Z...
Nokia has kept in the market for so long with mobile devices only. Sony, Apple, Samscum, are making many devices into the market and their marketing strategies are strategic.
Do you think Nokia should merge with Microsoft?
I hope Nokia will manage a Nokia phone with waterproof and 41mega pixel camera, name Nokia lumia 1920 ! Nokia, you done well! Nokia, if you can update some popolur applications as many as like android and ios, will much better, carry on! Nokia!
sailfish os...all android app will run
Ubuntu os....all computer app will be installed.
Nokia should think new os .
Microsoft also neglecting nokia.
if nokia become weaker its an opportunity for Microsoft to own it.
willboyce, 03 Aug 2013Cant wait to get my hands on thisSame here, know how you feel, waiting, waiting, waiting...
Rad-K, 04 Aug 2013N8 owner here, if it is the same aluminum as N8's body then it doesn't scratch at all ;)Thanks. That's good, I also have a N8 and the aluminium is perfect, but I was looking the review of this phone from technobuffalo and the guy said it scratches easily. Anyway, if it's like the N8 it's good, can't wait to get mine.
I'm on vacation in Seattle . Was at local at&t , tried the 1020 , never tried windows phone . Used android and i phone . I must say it's much better experience , very smooth . Fast . Different but with a plus . Camera hands down the best No questions asked . I'm gonna buy it No doubt
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2013as if you have one)))))))or dont know how to operate it!!!!!Lol. I don't need to explain myself to you. Your just jealous of who won the comparison.
Aadrian, 03 Aug 2013To Lumia 1020 owners, does the aluminium camera hump scratches easily?N8 owner here, if it is the same aluminum as N8's body then it doesn't scratch at all ;)
Question to haters?what you do wit 8 cores what you could not do in SGS3?
Without using WP HOW CAN YOU BASH IT? With 2 cores its way much better then 4 cores Android, really its open challenge. Use it and then come back to comment. Things gonna i prove for Nokia, i agree that They could take juice out of android before fully going in WP but cheap apps viruses and bugs does not seem the tasteoffinns. They should learn business rather than ethics :)
