Aadrian, 08 Apr 2014Really good smartphone, I am still using it without any problem. I am curious about the update... moreHey dude!
Can you tell me about battery performance of the Lumia 1020? I am planning to upgrade from my sexy Nokia lumia 925
I always had Nokias and Use a N8. I bought the 1020 as succesor and I was totally stunned whow hilliarouusly incapable WP8 is compared to Symbian. All onboard Apps like Music player, Calendar and so an are just junk. Not comparable in any form to the N8 Bell player, hands down. They programmed a Jailbrake for iOs, which I hate, but for this nearly noit configurable WP8 os they desperately need a hellbreak. Symbian or iOs is pure Freedom compared to this unconfigurable user alternating system.
There is no way around using the Cloud. Read the news, every single bit you upload to the Microsoft cloud can and WILL be used against you. Read the story of a blogger who posted MS-internals, and his insider got busted because MS accessed HIS Data and Mails in their cloud. And MS things this is perfectly ok, the Data is ment to be used against you, that`s the whole point of creating a cloud!!!
So no spycloud for me, thanks.
But syncing with outlook is nearly impossible without cloud. Nokia Suit doesn`t work, no tool from Nokia anymore for your Phone ..
The List goes on and on. No VPN, no Infocenter, no Background, no usable basic apps (Compare the music player with the onboard Android Player .. its sooo much worse, I cant believe how inferior WP 8 is to ALL other Os out there. It is at least 3 Years behind.
As 8.1 MAY get them 1-2 years closer to the competition, I wait until the Update is rolled out to see if I can use this good Camera with junk os after the Update. Until then I will use my WAY superior N8 (regarding configurability and capability).
Really good smartphone, I am still using it without any problem. I am curious about the update for WP8.1 which is the only thing I'm waiting for at the moment.
The fact that the Lumia 930 doesn't have Glance screen makes me think I will use this phone for an even longer time since the Glance screen feature is a really nice and quite inportant thing to have now I am used to have it on the device.
Using this device for 8 months now.

I've updated also from Amber to Black 1 month ago, no problem. I was really surprised cause during the update (in download stage), battery was running out, so the device consumed all the neccecary energy to download - ota wifi), then stoped (the device didnt turned off - i made also 2-3 calls)and proceeded 2 hours later to instalation when i get home (no wifi nor internet connection)and charged the device.
it's a very good smartphone I'm using it for a while, no complaints. Only waiting for WP8.1 to be official and starting to roll out.
Nokia refocus app works very well I installed it and I'm happy with the app.
jai, 30 Mar 2014Already did all of suggestions on saving power but still. Took only 2 hours continuous browsing.\Good morning my friend, forget to ask you how long you have the device, cause its different if everything was ok for 1-2 months- or even couple of weeks- and suddenly had this problem, and another thing if you have just bought it and notice itensive batt drain (btw did you calibrate the batt wheb you bought it?). As already posted you, hard reset is a good solution, if after this the problem exists then look forward to nokia care. (i hope you dont look the notification "estimated time left", but the %of batt and the notification bar batt.status).
Wish you all the best :))

It's also recommended by Nokia as ultimate solution. Hope it works.
Go for 1020. I own a Lumia 920 and it rocks, but 1020 just surpasses 920 by a huge margin. BTW 1020 is not too big, no way.

41 mp only explain how big/wide the image,not quality.
1st factor of image quality is sensor and lens, not megapixel.

The,only thing that I really hate the most is battery life. Its getting hot while surfing, playing games and takes about 2-3 hours. Not as bad while in standby mode. Many Lumia 1020 users have the same issues regarding battery life. Is it battery problem or its software?
People my phone battery drains out at following rate
a>100 to 5% in 3 hours while playing games
b>100 to 5% in 6 hours while surfing internent and being on skpe
c>100 to 5% in couple of days with no internet & skype but only phone, music & camera
I am using battery saver and by gps is off, is this a normal behaviour , or should I report this to nokia care can any of 1020 users please share their views
which is better to buy, nokia 1020, nokia 925, xperia z or lg g2? i only want good camera, good pdf reader, few apps and games. i don't use my cp for music cause i have an ipod. the bump is okay but i want one that's not too bulky. also, can accelerometer be turned off in windows 8? i know in windows 7.8 it can't be turned off.
