gaurav, 25 Dec 2014this phone has otg support or not?No, it hasn't otg support.
Have been using this phone for almost a year now and like every other phone, it has its ups and downs. Please note that i use this as my secondary phone (nothing beats BB for me as a workhorse). I have used and using all kind of os and phones (i use 3 devices at any given time...lols) so i think i can compare it fairly with others. So here is my go on this phone:
Camera: Will get you good picks even on auto settings but move your lazy arse a little and learn a bit about manual settings. Thats where this camera truly shines. you will be amazed what you can achieve with manual settings. also apps like refocus, panorama really give amazing results.
Screen: Ok, not very much by today standards, but amoled gives an edge to this over others. recently compared its screen with one of my friend's sony z1. Color reproduction and sun light readability are far better on 1020. Also comes with feather touch (means you can use it with gloves also). A true blessing fr ppl lik me living in Himalayas :-)
Build quality: Nokia has always been known for its tank like build quality and 1020 is no exception.
Earphone music quality: Im saying earphones coz speaker is normal. However plug in some good quality earphones and you will really enjoy your music. Also dolby enhances the clarity further.
OS updates: 1020 has been getting every update till date and it seem will continue to do so for at least 1-2 more years
Battery: One of the biggest gripes of this phone. Though i dont use it as my primary phone but still have to recharge it at the end of the day (normal usage being max 1 hrs of talktime, 3-4 hrs if music and 10-12 shots per day). No internet, no videos, no wifi.
Shot to shot time: if you want to take the pic in an instant, forget it with this. 1020 takes at least 3-4 seconds to save a shot after being taken (808 was far better in this matter).
OS: This one is a mixed bag. If you are migrating from android you will be sourly disappointed. apart from lack of apps, the os is still a long way from anywhere close to ios (ios still rocks for the ease of use) or android (it dosent even have a data toggle switch in notification pane!!) If you are a ios or android user and thinking of getting this phone, chances are, camera will be the only up gradation for you and you will be loosing in all other departments. HOwever, there is almost no lag on the phone (except for camera app sometimes with panorama stitching)and contacts (people app) is one of the best i have ever used
Thats all that is coming to my mind right now. However if you have any specific questions regarding the device, please feel free to ask.
PS: I Am from India so my views may be accordingly biased.
I wonder when someone says they still get blurry photos even after the camera has OIS in it....Btw some photography Tip and homework will surely do the trick
Here is a Click on Lumia 1020

I was also a bit disappointed at first with my 808 pureview's camera. But I was blown away when I finally was able to utilize its features and not just rely on auto mode. It might be the same with your 1020. You need to take some time in learning the features and how to use the camera properly. And I hope you know already how a physical shutter button works in focusing shots. ;)
I've got the 1020 from August last year and it's still my favourite Nokia phone.
abhi, 21 Dec 2014And can any1 tell me whether the great lumia 1020 be a gud buy at this time compared to the mo... moreCamera-wise yes, no doubt. The screen of the 1020 is sharper, but the 830 has a removable battery and a micro-sd card slot. Besides, it has older hardware. But if you look for a phone for it's camera, in this case the 1020 is the one to have. Besides it will be upgraded to Windows 10 eventually next year so for that I would not worry to not get updates no more.
And can any1 tell me whether the great lumia 1020 be a gud buy at this time compared to the more beautiful Lumia 830????

This phone is a huge disappointment
it overheats ,constantly. to the point where it can burn , especially on charge.
the battery drains when even on aeroplane mode, with wifi switched off and data by the second.
The camera Could be amazing but its hard to use, out of 10 photos 9 come out blury stabilized or not.
now either I got a dud or the phone sucks.
if anyone else had similar problems I'd be interested to know.
thank you :)
