hi all, plse note that the spec says contact storage is unlimited, but as per the information from nokia care the limit is only 1000 if you are using Microsoft account (all new Hotmail acccounts). this is ridiculous. one more thing may applicable to all lumia phones which are using Microsoft account. So be careful before u buy it
has anyone ever bought a handset online from mobiles direct uk, I am in the line of purchasing a lumia 1020 from them and wanted to confirm authenticity
thula g, 22 Mar 2014will this phone work overseas? im in south africa and want to buy it for my gf who works in so... moreyeah it will, i'm in south america and many persons here got it, just purchase an unlocked version online
thula g, 22 Mar 2014will this phone work overseas? im in south africa and want to buy it for my gf who works in so... moreThere should be no problem, however I think the warranty probably won't cover the device for use in different continent e.g. USA and Europe, Nokia care can informs you better in this.
will this phone work overseas? im in south africa and want to buy it for my gf who works in south america. will it work there??
I've been using this phone since December and totally loved it!
so damn smooth! almost no lag!
great camera performance, especially after GDR3/Black Update... it's slow, but it's powerful...
anyway, if you're really concerned about the shoot-to-shoot time in the 1020, there's always the Smart mode/Nokia Smart Camera to the rescue
apps? all the useful apps I need are already here...
those who says that Windows Phone lacks apps are right - it lacks the junk apps that fills most of the Android stores
softly-tech, 21 Mar 2014i'm confused guys, i want to know if it's worth spend money for this device.
dual core agai... moreHi my friend, I think you should read carefully the GSM arena 1020's and 1050 review and then to decide. The numbers of cores only isn't the only criteria to take in consideration. Every 3-4 months always new devices are added with more and more cores.......
Like 1050 are also 1030, icon and maybe, must be conformed first, 1080 ???, but like 1020 there is nothing else,1020 is a unique device. However as our friend before posted depends on what you want and,or need. :):):) Al the best
softly-tech, 21 Mar 2014i'm confused guys, i want to know if it's worth spend money for this device. dual core agai... moreI can't tell my experience cause I've never used a 1520 to compare it in speed, but this Phone with a dual core is already fast enough. Lag free, optimized UI so no lags. It depends on you whether you prefer a 41MP camera over a 20MP camera -which is also briljant- and/or a phablet over a regular sized smartphone. Either way it's a good Phone both 1020 and 1520.
softly-tech, 21 Mar 2014i'm confused guys, i want to know if it's worth spend money for this device. dual core agai... moreBro it all depends wat u looking for...both fone prices r very similar now...but 1520 is huge to be a fone...as a 2nd phone its fine...but as a main fone lumia 1020 with 41mp is the best options if u love camera.
i'm confused guys, i want to know if it's worth spend money for this device.
dual core against quad-core for 1520.
Any advice please guys!!!!?
becool79, 21 Mar 2014missing my lumia 1020...its been gone for replacement...finding android very boring..missing m... morebad luck hpe you will get it back soon I can understand the emptyness when you're forced to used Android again after a long time of WP use, hard to get used to lags and stutters.
Still enjoying this device, great smartphone. Even better with WP8.1 soon. No complaints about the device itself.
Though some WP features waiting in WP8.1 that I like to have. So let's hope it will be available soon after Build 2014 next month. Cannot wait.
missing my lumia 1020...its been gone for replacement...finding android very boring..missing my smooth live tiles and classy UI and OS. I had cracked my screen..after replacement...battery problem started...soo hopefully will get new lumia 1020 yellow
razorramon, 19 Mar 2014wish i could buy this baby, but i'll be buying its lil bro the lumia 925! The 925 is very good too, great camera and design. Especially in black, but that's my opinion of course.

I have an iPhone 5 and my son has the 5S. They really are good phones but, in my opinion, not of the same physical build quality of Nokia, even though Nokia is plastic.
iOS7.1 runs fairly smooth but Apple does not live up to expectations. The 1020 is by far superior as a phone, also as a handheld PC with native Office apps, it is by far a more secure OS than iOS and then there is the camera that is just light years ahead of iPhone.
