I am planning to buy sony 21 mp nfc and wifi enabled camera lenses with ois and manual optical zoom for my note 2 then i wud have best of both the worlds, no need to buy this dual core and low powered battery with tiny screen just for its camera. But yes i wud miss the xenon flash However i wud first compare the flash of my note 2 which is a real powerfull flash with the xenon flash and i will also compare pictures...b4 buying these lenses
Another tearjerker. PV808 and this.. It sounded so..depressing.. Hope TRUE innovation won't be buried with Nokia. Don't compare "improvements" against innovation. Don't compare companies that advertise stolen preexisting technology as their own orig development against a company who invented a technology but fails on marketing.
Everything except Nokia is a compromise!
P.S. I have Galxy Note II and Galaxy S4.... Before that was always Nokia. I'll buy 1020 no matter what.
THE END OF AN ERA!
Hope they come again soon...somehow...
AnonD-161447, 23 Sep 2013Lumia 1020 may well be the best cameraphone.But you have to agree that Z1 is not as bad as GSM... moreI don't no . ive seen other reviews and comparison's, .

AnonD-189088, 23 Sep 2013ok i have checked the photo comparisons between PureView 808, Xperia Z1 and Lumia 1020 - th... moreLumia 1020 may well be the best cameraphone.But you have to agree that Z1 is not as bad as GSMA says it is.
ok i have checked the photo comparisons between PureView 808, Xperia Z1 and Lumia 1020
- the Lumia 1020 and PureView 808 results are comparable only that L1020 have some punch in the colors and some visible noise in Full reso
- the Xperia Z1 does good but doesn't have that detail that the L1020 can see in its sensor, see all the charts specially the grey chart
(I've only looked at the left-most side of Z1 since there's some defect on GSMArena's sample unit, still no exception compared to L1020)
so can the android gang give-up and just accept whole-heartedly that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the KING of CAMERAPHONES? :)
and pls don't say that GSMArena was paid by Nokia to belittle your Xperia Z1,
Truth hurts, but it will set you free! :D
In all the pictures I didn't see the battery status icon, not to mention the percentage of the battery charge. This is like having a car without the fuel indicator. Crazy!
Was waiting for the review for such a long time. I understand it will take time to study on this fabulous device. Review as expected. It is going to release around Rs 40K!!!
I love Nokia , 23 Sep 2013I planing to buy Apple 5s but after reading this review. I think I can go for Nokia 1020. Ok t... moreFP technology has been around for ages, also in cellphones a few years ago. A couple of things to keep in mind though. It's unrealiable and easy to trick.
Even if going with iphone, you would be better off using password.
Awesome review man..hats off!! I was always a Nokia fan and always will be.
i got goosebumps
I would like to congratulate you for your review! In this world full of haters ( who deep down inside will also miss Nokia ) your article praises what's best from this phone manufacturer that will be truly missed.
pureview was the swan song for symbian with the 808 and now it's the same for the whole phone division with this 1020.
I planing to buy Apple 5s but after reading this review. I think I can go for Nokia 1020. Ok this night i will decide. But FP sensor is much advanced technolgy in A5. Because i dont like boring password. It will be new expreance just unlock your mobile with finger print.
finally i cant buy a fone just because this Finger print technology.
my last decisone is Nokia lumia 1020
just thank you gsma for a great review(as always), I hope we will see products from Nokia or at least companies pushing limits like Nokia was...
Correction: To enable loud speaker while listening to the FM Radio, just press and hold on the station and the pop-up box will display the option for you to select 'Switch To Speaker'.
The LG KU 990 Viewty has both Auto/Manual focus. So its not only the 1020 that has a manual focus.
The best phone of them all.
