By the way, the circular camera island looked ugly and out of place and it ruined the beauty of the n9 bodyshape. Should have donned it with a different shape to match the body style maybe ala n8?. The 808 is a much more beautiful execution in comparison
So the 808 is the last symbian phone. Will the 1020 be the last WP phone? Hopefully, and the last phone by mr elop too. Bring on asha+pureview FTW!!!!
This is a master Piece for all photography lovers in a modern OS. i wish more apps to be done for wp8. the camera is fantastic Optical Image Stabilization Xenon Pureview ShutterSpeed control full manual focus adjustment come on guys this is a DSLr not a camera phone. Am just waiting for some photo comparisons.
i once owned 808pureview its camera was marvellous but the lack of apps killed me it was a mistake to buy a symbian phone even with a good cam. switched to NoteII which is an amazing phone too with an amazing battery life.
i will think twice before swapping my NoteII with this. i will wait to see the quality of apps added to the windows store then decide to swap or not.
BUT for the camera belive me guys thats a DSLr its even got 6 lens !! woooow
except for rear 38mp camera- mediocre specs ..NOKIA OUGHT TO DO BETTER ..and high projected cost ..
Does it have SMS inbox password function.? so that i can keep my SMSs from the reach of everyone.? also does it have password function for Watsapp.?
I understand it has a phone unlock screen thing.

For those who hates the 32GB built memory card, you can read about the other version of it. It does have a 64GB version
Have the issues with the Windows software not working with MMS? It's a real pain to sell when little features like that don't work!
Announced in June 2013 & release also in June 2013!! But we are in July 2013 NOW !!!!!!!
Every phones had advantages & disadvantages so it depends on the user..But for me i would prefer to pick this phone. My last nokia phone was C6-01 & switched to Android Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I already saw the smoothness of Windows OS and it amazed me plus the powerful camera & quality build of Nokia its a great phone you will not regret if i have it. Don't blame or hate manufacturers if you think they don't have your required specification because this is their business not yours. Just buy the phone(s) that fits your daily needs or budget.
About the CPU
"On 17 November 2010, Qualcomm announces the roadmap for Next-Gen Snapdragon SoC development, including the *MSM8960*, citing future improvements in CPU and GPU performance and lower power consumption"
November 2010 !!!
HELLO WE'RE IN 2013
Nokia users deserve better than this
don't lie at yourself ans say that you can't get something better
and i don't mean better by overclocking or a quad-core i meant something new and innovative not from 2010
all what they could improve from 920 is the camera and 1GB of RAM ?
one word.. Rubbish
Gisam, 11 Jul 2013No micro sd slots.. Better get 808.yeah, i considered to get 808 for the camera and 920 for wp8 and lte connection. But i think 32gb is not too bad since you can easily transfer files unlike in apple products. Although i have to say, i maxxed out 16gb in ihpone in just 1 month simply because it is hard ti transfer files unlike other os. I just hope 1020 price is much less than 808+920 price combined.
didi440, 11 Jul 2013am ok with the specs... the only thing that bothers me is the absence of Sd card, dual core wh... moreFor windows phones they can't have custom specs such as quad core if u realize, windows phones with dual core is already buttery smooth
cant believe still that they had there my one and only nokia n82 the first one packin a xenon flash back in the day by nokia n shyet.. so proud still workin got it hidden on a drawer n powerin it up every now n then. just hit me if u want to buy it .. no im kiddin . fyi i ship it worldwide. nbd
I was considering switching from Android when Lumia 925 came out, but now I'm definitely switching. The 1020 is just unbelievably good!
am ok with the specs... the only thing that bothers me is the absence of Sd card, dual core when everybody's quad, and also poor design alongside OS.......NOKIA should really start making droids....also a larger screen let's say 5.1 or 5.2" wouldn't have hurt anybody....Nokia still has a long way to go before it can catch up with the likes of samsung, htc, sony and lg.......NOKIA'S now like blackberry very poor with specs and battery.....
In the specification is information about offline maps, but there is no information about offline navigation and GPS (like Nokia N8), only A-GPS and A-GLONASS is available? Could you please explain?
Gromblelord, 11 Jul 2013Great I can record at 1080p but can only watch at 720p and no micro-SD slot,the droids are cal... moreAbsolutly baffled why would anyone watch 720p or 1080p video on their puny screen mobiles when VGA is plenty good enough in reality.Surley its their to enjoy on big tv screen.
How can you see detail on puny screen ,,i have same problem with gamers..Why would you game on a silly puny touchscreen phone when a proper console offers proper button gaming control pad?????????? Accuracy on full touch is very limited in fact just bring back some buttoned high end smartphones and end this boring miserable slab smartphone rubbish.
