The question is this; is Nokia a phone company or a camera company? 41mp on a phone with 32GB internal memory and no expandable memory? Come off it Nokia! Whenever i need a good shooter, I'll go get myself a SLR. Nokia should stop sacrificing functional apps for camera. Tell me, where are we gonna store photos and videos taken with our 41PM shooter? On our non expandable 32GB internal memory of course1
WhatsApp for WP devices is updated today. Now its working fine. Everything is stable. I have updated and now no problem on my NL 820. So update the application and enjoy. Changelog is
Initiate voice calls from within the app
*.Background API allows you to play music
*.Fixed notifications for users
*.Users can now see smileys on the double wide tile
*.Fast resume (If the app is open and you click on the incoming notification it opens as fast as on Android)
*.On start-up, it now asks if you want to back up your chat history. You can also do this through settings.
*.Large images shown
Except for the camera,
LG G2 is far better than Lumia 1020.
Guys, obviously there are a lot of people who are against Nokia. I"ve been using Nokia for 10 years now continously and have seen my dad, bro and wife use other phones like Samsung, BB. Nokia phones are wonders in their Engineering, simply because of the quality of hardware. Yes, sometimes Nokia's software is not as great to support the marvels that Nokia's Hardware Engineers do. Maybe Nokia should take the Apple way and introduce just one or at the most two models of Smartphones, so that the software guys have time to do justice to the hard work and brilliant efforts put in by the hardware developers!
And for the many people out there, who crib about Nokia having dated hardware, let me tell you guys, Having a bulky battery, RAM and a whole lot of processing power has no meaning, unless you completely utilize it. Even my PC which is dual core with 2GB RAM utilizes an average of 25% of its resources at normal load and 75% when I'm running some Engineering Analysis. I don't see why a mobile phone would need much more. Further, it all boils down to the efficiency of the software and hardware. If a device guzzles 2000+mAH of battery with normal usage and needs more RAM than my windows 8 PC, I would not categorize it as efficient. I hope people realise these numbers make no meaning and it is the performance/utlization that matters.
AnonD-77140, 12 Jul 2013Come on Nokia, 41mp? Yet you offer just 2000mAH battery and just 32G of internal storage, not ... moreMy Galaxy s3 has it and I guess it's more than a year since SGS3 was released
2100 mAh battery
32GB internal storage and 64GB external (MSD card)
4.8" HD screen
Lighter and smaller though
I have been through different mobile phone,I love exploring many phone imfact i Hvae 39 MOBILE pHONE PASS ON MY HANDS and expriences diffrent kinds and brands...they have some semilar features some with also different structures and sensor.I love photo capturing ..All i can say with this nokia 1020 owwwowww....Great job for Nokia company Best camera ever.
Will there be the battery endurance test for this phone? If so, when will we get to see those test results?
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2013not so impressive as thought... screes size is just 4.5" which should be 5"... no me... more4.5-5' screen: The hyped created by Samsung of giving up phones a bad name and making their portability is so ridiculous and some people are brainwashed by it. Of course, Nokia later this year will announce a 5-6' Nokia Lumia but that is just due to complainers like you.
Just 2000mAH battery: I agree they could add more but you know, there is an accessory available which add 1000 mAH more to the phone and some other cool stuff. It doesn't cost much if you "care"
32 GB of internal storage: I don't know the reason behind it. It's definitely a draw back.
quad-core CPU?: Get over it, WP doesn't need a quad-core CPU to run smoothly. It's even running better than Androids having octa cores. Quad core will come later this year
Bulky: You kidding me? It's thin with this much technology inside. What will you call S4 Zoom?
AnonD-49711, 12 Jul 2013Specs are better then any android phone.specially camera feature outstanding......What specs are better other than the camera.....All windows phones look and operate to the same bar a few features....IE the camera....This phone is overpriced and overhyped,as a retailer i can tell you now there'll be little or no interest in this phone....All lumias look the same an this will be nokias downfall.
american, 12 Jul 2013Dude!!.. Design from outside hardly makes any difference.. The quality of samsung n apple are ... moreit Simply means that u dnt know nokia.. U might see many 10 year old nokia phones, and they work fine even after a rough use, bt it's practically impossible to find a 5 year old samsung phone that works fine.. we are not forcd fans. bt we are fans by choice since u can't really compare the built quality of a nokia handset with a samsung..
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2013Even if I considered Windows Phone an "upgrade" from symbian (which I don't), my N8 ... moreit has more apps than belle,it has the largest BIS sensor in a consumer device yet,you can use it with your nails and or pens,it has a far superior screen,ram,cpu,gpu,etc..i believe these reasons are enough..
Even if I considered Windows Phone an "upgrade" from symbian (which I don't), my N8 still has the FM transmitter, and microSD card slot. Why would I upgrade to one of these?
I'm not into the whole non-removable battery thing anymore either. Still waiting for Jolla.
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2013need more memory or 41 mp camera worthlessThank you. They are going mad.
harry, 12 Jul 2013am big fan of nokia....bt Nokia plz com with a 5inch 1920*1080,400ppi screen,atleast 2gb ram,1... moreAppreciated harry. No other company. Could compete nokia then.
1 more thing nokias own os unlike apple or blackberry. This would be the punch in the face of so called mobile giants
Come on Nokia, 41mp? Yet you offer just 2000mAH battery and just 32G of internal storage, not expendable. There are phones with less specs, but with better battery, and expandable memory. You guys have lost it. Period!
Specs are better then any android phone.specially camera feature outstanding.
not so impressive as thought... screes size is just 4.5" which should be 5"... no memory card slot... non removable battery... no quard core cpu... bit bulky.. the only highlight is 41 mp camera which also is not newer than 808...
