My experience since 2014
Best: camera, camera, camera
Good: build quality, very quick charge
Neutral: size, weight, screen, sound
Bad: maps, synchronisation, battery life, built-in memory only, slow photo shooting
Worst: wpOS (and it can't be cured)
Now I'm switched back to Android but left 1020 as a souvenir in memory of Nokia

I was recovering windows 8 in Nokia 1020. I installed Nokia software tool. I updated my Nokia 1020 from 8.0 to 8.1 by mistake. Which I don't want. Now camera takes more times to save the pics, quality of images inferior in 8.1 OS. Internet explorer closed down automatically. Can I downgrade my windows phone from 8.1 to 8.0 is?
Reifer15, 19 Apr 2015I don't know what phone to buy:
Nokia Lumia 830
Nokia Lumia 925; love the design but no memo... moreI have both the 1020 and 930. No complaints after a long time of use. Both are very good phones, the 930 is definitely more future proof because of the hardware, the 1020 still is the phone with the best camera. Between those two phones I think they will cost about the same.
What about the 925, it is only available with 16GB of which a part will be used by the OS. so if you already have 8GB of music, I might suggest you to either go for a 32GB 1020 or 930, or a Lumia 830 which has micro SD.

Nokia Lumia 925; love the design but no memory card. Is the memory a problem? (I current have 8GB music on my phone)
Nokia Lumia 930; but I read a lot of negative comments.
Nokia Lumia 1020; also negative comments.
I like Windows OS and I am a big Nokia fan but I can't decide which one to buy.
I would like exposition of the positive and negative of this phones. Thanks

You don't need a quad core cpu for windows operating system.
Just like to iPhone it's not a quad core but, it's just as fast as any smartphone with a quad core cpu.

It's a shame it's a little behind in the hardware side, it would have been great running a quad core processor.
I know WP doesn't need it to run smoothly, but we won't see many updates for the 1020 (like full Denim). That's the main reason why I chose the 1520 in the first place.
Considering their releases are only two or three months apart, it a big difference.

I had the chance to get a 1020, I already have a 1520 and the difference between both cameras is mind blowing. The 1020 camera is simply amazing.
But I have a question tho, when I shake it, it makes a rattling sound, did anyone experience this as well?
Everything works fine, it just makes that sound.
