Only thing this phone does not have Android - so I cant download bb and also I cannot get my work emails loaded on here. Otherwise the phone is awesome
Would like to share my experience with 1020.
a>Camera simply awesome, best in market I suppose. 41 megapixel kills the competitors
b>Lag free operations, credit goes to dual core snapdragon. I understand that it is not the best processor in the market as we have quad core available, however dual core is perfectly optimized & delivering good performance. What is the use of quad core if you are not even utilizing 2 cores in a quad core processor.
c>Memory & OS - Comes with good RAM configuration again desigined to deliver optimized performance in tandem with processor & Windows mobile 8.
d> What can be improved -
i>Battery life, Battery life with internent or gaming is poor. It would give 2 -3 hrs max with internet or gaming even after battery healthy or power saver mode is on. However without internet & gaming once fully charged it can go for days with talktime & music.
ii>Simple applications like compass, call recorder are not available free of cost vis a vis ios & android. Nokia & MS need to think on this seriously as this is becoming a major gain for android & Ios.
iii>OS upgrades & after sale service - Impertaive that Nokia & MS continue to focus on becoming market leader by providing good after sale service , while Nokia is moving to Android it should continue to focus on MS phone projects, by improvising the store with free apps which would provide competition to Ios & android.
I'm using it right now and I love the smoothness web browsing really great compared to other smart phones. This phone is really definition of smart phone,
Is there any way to watch live matches in 1020.. from website like crictime.com ..?
the 1020 has better battery, i've heard s4's battery swells up, 1020 has 41 mp camera which is better than s4, windows app store is getting lots of new apps, i suggest you buy the nokia lumia 1020! its a great phone!
AnonD-247001, 23 Mar 2014Hi, Which phone is better one Lumia 1020 or samssung galaxy s4? i am looking for good batter... morebro lumia 1020 is the best phone wat u require..and windows 8.1 will be more awesome
AnonD-161215, 21 Mar 2014i'm confused guys, i want to know if it's worth spend money for this device. dual core agai... moreIve used every nokia lumia device from the 920 up to the 1520... (waiting to try the 929/icon) and I have to say ive not seen a bit of difference in speed ...the operating system is perfectly matched with ths s4plus snapdragon clocked @ 1.5GHz as its less demanding...same as the apple iphone 5s @ 1.3GHz ....there is only one reason Nokia dropped a quad core in tje 1520 and the icon and that is to shut up the android loudmouth....dont get me wrong I use tne snapdragon 800 and I also own a snapdragon 801 device n yes yhey r fast...but the system demands it. ..and it also demands a 3000+ mAh battery to go with it where okus bodes great with the 2000mAh and iphone with its 1350mAh ..... (iPhone def needs to up this one) I the only question u need to ask thay will answer whether u need a quad core or s dual core windows phone is whether or not ule be running 10 or more apps at the same time? That is when u will notice the 1520 and the icon pull away from the pack of lumia models still boasting a Qualcomm snapdragon s4 plus.....hope this helps

i am looking for good battery life
i am not aware/bother of apps
pls help me ?
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
AnonD-246621, 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
AnonD-246621, 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
