The Nokia Lumia 1020 is an amazingly compact device when you think about the fact that it actually features a 41-megapixel camera…

And yet powerful.
By the way phonearena, why are you not writing the thickness around the camera at lumia 1020, it is kind of cheating from Nokia. I understand that they want the phone to look good, but I would also mention the thickness around the camera, because I would show the world that in a 20mm thick phone I managed to put such a camera in it.

that was the 808 purview days they did an amazing job keeping it compact look at the side view ! compared to the 808 they've been working hard for a year and a half also this isn't the flagship is it ?

The phone is 10.4 mm in thickness WITH the camera! measuring without the camera, it looks like the Lumia 925. So 8.5 mm.

I don't think so. It's either 10.4 not including the camera, or 10.4 averaging in the camera hump with the rest of the phone.

Its 10.4 with the camera hump.
Go in on Nokias website and check for yourself.

Just watched a hands on comparison between the lumia 920 and 1020 and it's clearly obvious the 1020 is 10.4mm thick without out the camera bump.. If it included that camera hump then the rest of the phone would be really slim like 5-6mm but in the video it show's the just the 2 body's of the phone pretty much identical..

Having said that Nokia have done a great job pretty much keeping the device same size as thelumia 920 and with the tapered edges seem to have made the phone smaller than it really is.

The L1020 is 10.4mm thick without the camera hump and with it approximately the same thickness as the 808 i.e nearly 14mm.

Just use a ruler on the side view.

Still very impressive for such a good camera.

They done an impressive job to have fit that awesome can in such a slim body and even if it 14mm with the hump that's still much smaller than I thought it would be..when the leaks first appeared I thought it be much thicker.

A better characterization for the iP5 would be... dinky.

Bezel is manly, it adds to the great solid experience that is Nokia. The Lumia 920/1020 are the only things that look good with my Powertools, and my hammers made out of old Soviet tanks.

If only it could grow a mustache.

I don't understand why the 1020 is SO WIDE (71.4mm wide for a 4.5" device vs 69.8mm for a 5" device (S4) )

I think the comparison of the 1020, 920, and 808 is a much bigger story than comparing to the iPhone (which is so much smaller in every aspect). That they could cram the 808's camera into the 920's body and make it thinner. Impressive packaging.

Soo..the design is ABSOLUTELY THE SAME as on the previous flagship.. yet Nokia fans point fingers on Apple and Samsung when they make subtle changes in design.

Hypocrites
