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.

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 :)

Bazooka, 02 Aug 2013The only thing I liked about WP8 is the fluidity of the OS. I used Lumia 520 for a while, but ... moreThat's why they called Lagdroid. Stability is also 10x times better on WP8 vs Android.
Nokia only made 20series like 820,920 and now 1020.what about N8,N9...
