I realy dont understant the battery issue here, I am with 8.1 and battery life is just grate, 2 days most of the time ...
Awful phone - steer well clear.
Battery life - rubbish
Earpiece volume - so bad you'd probably be as well to ask the person you're speaking with to shout to you instead of calling as you'd probably hear more.
Camera - GREAT definition, but rubbish zoom. Pictures of anything from more than 10 feet - forget it. Flash is too bright as well. Night mode without flash, may as well not bother.
Other points - gets very warm when using - slightly concerning. Unless you have PIN lock on, all sorts of apps & programs can be opened in your pocket. Certain apps tend to crash & need reloading - possi OS compatibility as it's not iphone or android.
Cannot wait for my contract to be up so that I can get rid of this utter piece of turd phone.
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE
AnonD-287676, 27 Jul 2014no am not using it, should I then try that..I agree, I would wait for the official release. It is better to wait and update OTA once available, so no need to register etc etc.
AnonD-287676, 27 Jul 2014no am not using it, should I then try that..Official release will be available soon so don't use the developer preview because you'll get official one soon enough
AnonD-287676, 27 Jul 2014thanks bro for your advise am really having fun with it..Yeah sure you would,are you using developer preview or no? Windows phone 8.1 official will be released anytime now within 2 weeks
I am also experiencing same issue with nokia lumia 1020. I purchased it few hours ago. Took some pictures and lens area become warm.
rollin, 26 Jul 2014It's normal bro ,no worriesthanks bro for your advise am really having fun with it..
Hi guys I received my 1020 today but after taking few pictures i discovered that by the lens side is a bit warm so I ask is this normal or is it something not correct? please put me in the picture..
Hi guys I received my Lumia 1020 today but after taking few pictures I feel it's a bit worm on the camera lens. I need advise is it normal or is it something wrong...
saj, 13 Jul 2014poor camera quality. i never get a pic quality of 38 mp. all my pic have lotz of noice. macro... moreyes, it's worthless for you only one. I don't own m8 but i own 925 and s4, i have to say that 925 is better in term of camera, not to mention premium build on my 925. Android is the the best platform for me that is why i'm using both phones. WP has done a great job as well but surely, i falls pretty far behind android.
I hope the price will be similar to Galaxy S4 so it will sell like a hot cake and i will get one for sure
Xin, 23 Jul 2014The phone is nice, and the camera is beautiful. But the battery is horrible. Utterly effing ho... moreDo some force reboots holding down the volume down button and power button for more then 8 secconds. If nothing good happening, charge it to full, do a factory reset. After, just let it charge to full and discharge to 5 percent 3 times. Also, let 2 hours to charge, egal if it,s already charget. Everytime, let it 2 hours. Last, after charge, just let it rest for an hour, so don, t stress the battery, thia should help a bit. Or quite more. It is true, 1020 is a power hungry so more then a day and a half with medium usage you won,t get, if you will get. But, if use it quite less, then shoild last a while. Mine consumes less then 5 percent in 10 hours while in standby.
The phone is nice, and the camera is beautiful. But the battery is horrible. Utterly effing horrible. I have to recharge it everyday and I barely use it. Same with my father's Lumia 1020. And this is without taking a single picture.
Coming from a Galaxy S3 I'm just dissapointed. And the lack of apps is something to take into consideration, so remember that if you are an app guy. It's weird because the OS seems solid, easy to navigate and a nice change from Android. Maybe in a few years it will get more attention from app developers.
Maybe both of us have a faulty 1020, but I don't know. I've tried googling about this issue and it seems we are not the only ones. It seems it's not even a battery issue, but a phone issue. I guess keep trying till you get a working one?
Oh, and I don't quite mind, but my father dislikes the edges of the phone, says the phone feels unconfortable on his pocket. He used to have an iPhone.
So all in all I would not recommend this phone. But quite possibly I would if the battery managed to last at least 3 days like my old S3. So yeah, lots of potential, but the battery issues and the lack of interest from app developers just killed this phone for me.
