Camera-centric Nokia Lumia 1020 stars in Bollywood music video
What bring this up is an appearance by the Nokia Lumia 1020, on a music video by Bollywood singer and actress Priyanka Chopra. The song is a cover of the Bonnie Raitt tune, "I Can't Make You Love Me." Check it out by clicking on the video below. The device is not even a year old, and will be getting the Windows Phone 8.1 update as will all Nokia Lumia models running on Windows Phone 8.
Because production of the phone occurred before the GDR3 update allowed Windows Phone manufacturers to use quad-core silicon and support larger screens, the Lumia 1020 is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus with the Adreno 225 GPU. The device is equipped with a 4.5 inch AMOLED screen with resolution of 768 x 1280. Still, the device does offer 2GB of RAM. Imagine what kind of specs Microsoft could stuff the sequel to this phone with now.
Thanks for the tip, Harsh Doshi!

But if you're talking the one with pure Nokia, the winner goes to 808 PureView.

Am I right that the 808 actually has a better camera than 1020? Like the sensor, lens and so on? And that 1020 takes better pictures mainly because of software and more power? I'm not sure though.

OIS??? Better video recording? Better software tweaks....

generally 1020 is the best. even better than 808.
hardware and definitely software-wise

A little of both, the lenses on the 1020 are probably better. the sense is back illuminated which is better, imo. Software is probably much more mature in the 1020. Here is a good comparo.

they are, i can confirm this because I actually had both phones until last week when I sold my 808 pureview

no it doesn't I recently sold my back-up 808 pureview and after the lumia black update the pictures in my lumia 1020 came a lot more natural, which was lacking at first, plus the extra lens on the camera gives it a better view at night time.

808 son and 1020 grandson.

you'd think that the n9 would have had a better camera, biggest irony in upgrading phones lol

The phone and the person holding the phone both are really very hot. ;)

After the Lumia black update, I was able to finally let go of my 808 pureview, my Lumia 1020 is now the king of kings

the black update did wonders to the algorithms used.

the best cameRa in smartphone definitely goes to nokia. Don't bother about software. Nokia will introduce pure view model for its upcoming android phones. Samsung can't reach near nokia in smartphone camera battle for the following 100 years
