you better wish.hoping will let you down

It's okay I'm confident. Nokia 1020 may be better in day light but Honami will be better in low light. Some parts eos wins and in some parts honami wins.

Well do u know that EOS has been fitted with OIS to take great low-light images?
17. aditya.k (Posts: 409; Member since: 10 Mar 2013)
OIS means great low light photography! Never knew this before! :D
18. kobainez (Posts: 292; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
and guess what? Honami will use the same sensor that sony rx100 II uses and it's a beast in lowlight

let the battle begin!!! (after they are both launched)

I have the RX100 and it's surprisingly good in low light (and mostly everything). Far from the smartphones i have seen. (I haven't seen the Nokia 808). My plan was/is to get the Note 3 but with this Nokia 1020 and perhaps a good Sony cameraphone my simple plan get's more complicated. Well, choice is good. Glad they are pushing eachother forward ;-)

if you decided to meet halfway because your arguments were too weak or you didn´t have them at all, and you didn´t because their no official spec for honami, means you´re insecure in your opinions and know a jack squat.
58. 8logic (Posts: 121; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
honami will probably look sexier basing on xperia z (i can make love to it lol) and running android. if nokia was running android, i'll be worrying for sony, but not at the moment lol

Well, SOME OF YOU are pretty floppy!
You talk about how WP needs to have 1080p resolution , how it should have the latest SoC...BUT you waive off the phone with the 41 megapixel sensor...i mean, what's the point? If Android had it, you won't be complaining. Just because it comes on WP, doesn't mean it's less capable or useless or a gimmick!
We'll just have to wait and see what the world has to say.

"Nokia's newest high-end handset would most likely rank among the best cameraphones in existence."
If the 1020 is only ranked "among" the best cameraphones then I will be massively surprised and disappointed. It will be ranked ad THE best cameraphone, bar none!!!

I think we got it the first time you posted it.

based on what? One pre production unit samples?
It will be better than your samesung anyway. Swallow this bitter pill kid.

This is not the Galaxy Camera review page you know...
16. scriptwriter (Posts: 396; Member since: 13 Nov 2012)
I really dont see what the hype is all about with this device. Yes, it has a very high end camera. But other than that, its just another windows phone to me. The same device repeated over and over. Other than changing the colour and size of the live tiles, there not much in the way of customization. When Nokia falls off the Windows bandwagon, i might have better respect for new device they bring out
24. xoxoGeorges (Posts: 151; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
It is not the same device. "Another WP device" will be the end to all the "cameraphones" in the market.
Hide your Honamis and your Zooms/NX/Whatever

Those who'll be buying this probably own a full frame dslr or a micro 4/3rds with plenty of lenses to spare,
Really wondering at what rate they'd use the camera function on a daily basis, maybe a few hundred clicks during the first week, then soon they'll ask themselves.."Wait...I'm not satisfied, time to grab my DSLR and get back to taking real photos"
I really don't understand the ''awe'' in them with this phone ... when it's just a P&S and a sheety Windows phone hybrid
27. xoxoGeorges (Posts: 151; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
You know, those who will buy this are the ones who DON'T own a pro camera. Why would you get this monster (of course when you put it with other phones) if you have a better one. lol
People want pristine images and reliable hardware, Samsung isn't providing either right now honestly.
Also, nobody wants to bring a full on DLSR for casual events with friends, they'd rather get a smartphone with a good cam.

''they'd rather get a smartphone with a good cam''
Never seen One...
really, believing the hype is one thing though...lol

I´m using my N8 zll the time since I bought it almost 3 years ago. If I have a comfort situation and I know I will have plenty of time to set everything right I can take my camera. I took a few days off and went on fuerta ventura last year. I could take my time and take photo after photo without rush. Alas, in more down-to-earth situations I want to be certain when I reach my hand out to take a pic that it will be fast and accurate. I don´t carry a camera on me all day long, but a cellphone is a must. Got the point kiddo?

Ok guys on thing for sure, This Shi*** fanboy has got at least three fake accounts... What PA is doing?
61. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
tashreef. You´re reffering to me or flushboredom?
65. scriptwriter (Posts: 396; Member since: 13 Nov 2012)
I agree. If i want a high end camera, i'll go out and buy a high end camera rather than buying a phone that comes with a high end camera but not much else.
23. xoxoGeorges (Posts: 151; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
Anyway. I wonder why people bitch and bitch about specs.
A 720p screen is as good as a 1080p on a small screen, unless you have your phone in your eyeball of course.
Specs are used to run the OS. All of us would raise a brow if these were on an Android, but WP does not need them, it's extremely smooth. Better specs also lead to worse batteries.
2 Cores is enough for WP honestly.

BUT...it's a Windows
it's , it's a Windows phone!
no need to explain
29. xoxoGeorges (Posts: 151; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
No hole in the backdoor permitting access to the whole phone
No lockscreen bypass (lol)
And the apps are on par (FB, Twitter, Viber, Tango, Whatsapp, Spotify), except for a couple major holes (there is an unofficial insta app with video support). And the quality is there, the WP store guidelines are very strict and don't let crapware like "hot sex stories"(currently #3 on the top new apps).

I see, you still own a Gingerbread...now I understand

last week a sgs3 exploded :\ ingured the owner suck this samsung crap now
51. tashreef (Posts: 475; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
Oh really, Even NDTV Gadgets has said that while reviewing GS4 it was lagging .... Exynos Version. so better luck next time
44. sorcio46 (Posts: 392; Member since: 27 Jul 2011)
The apps are absolutely NOT by par with iOS, neither with Android ;-)
And Windows is the most popular OS for virus (Android doesn't have it cause it's Linux based) troyan, malware, backdoors, BSOD... and many others :D
46. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
kid. You are confused. You mixed windows for pc with windows mobile. Delete your account or think twice before posting.
52. tashreef (Posts: 475; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
Android Doesn't have virus?
It's like "a prostitute saying, she's virgin"... LOL
56. 8logic (Posts: 121; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
the no bug, viruses, spyware is misleading. wp don't have them because theres not enough users; look at windows (pc) . the other stuff been fixed.
personal, i can't stand wp because its so boring. the phone has become an extension of you and i would like it to reflect me not MS
62. Whateverman (Posts: 3158; Member since: 17 May 2009)
+1. Excellent point! I think that can be applied to all other OSs and even a few Android OEMs. When I get a new phone, the first thing I do is change launcher to look like MY phone. Sense and TouchWiz are out of there, Blur isn't too bad. But you can't do that with any other device. We customize just about everything else in our lives, so why should we be able to customize our phones?
32. ama3654 (Posts: 233; Member since: 27 Nov 2012)
Its obvious you have never used a 1080p screen phone, go and have a look again mr, the comparison is day and night obvious, 1080p is a lot sharper and cleaner than 720p at any angle you look at it. And talking about specs, its not just the flat UI that uses those specs, think about heavy apps/games, and surely do they lag and stutter on those lacklustre specs on windows phone, plus lots of effects are stripped away to make games bearable. I used the Nokia Lumia 920 a bit so don't even start to lie.
45. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
don´t give us that 1080p crap again. Your tv or lzptop have significantly lower ppi and sharpness but you don´t grudge about. It´s a phone. You take a snap and transfer it on the bigger screen and to examine it 720p is more than enough. 330 ppi i more than enough. Great refresh rate and unmatched protection against sunlight. I´ll take those over halfbakes 1080p screens any day.
57. 8logic (Posts: 121; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
they can have lower resolution because we view them at a greater distance. i can tell the difference comparing my N4 and htc one (up close) at a distance, probably not; but than again, i am nearsighted lol
power consumption is a valid argument.

let this baby show us!
2.5D gorilla glass 3 ?? thats more dangerous! even more harder than L920? :'(
the 'pro cam' and 'nokia smart cam' ? s**t.. samsung must be crying with its 'galaxy NX' .. :D
31. xoxoGeorges (Posts: 151; Member since: 11 Jul 2013)
You know what's dangerous? Phones that explode in your pockets.
And you acting as if the Galaxy NX won't be Galaxy Camera 2. The only real competition this baby is going to get is from the Sony Honami (of course if they fix their algorithms).
35. Leica_Shooter (Posts: 18; Member since: 10 Jun 2013)
31 million reasons too many.
A camera phone shouldn't have more than 10MP.
Another Nokia gimmick.
36. FlushGordon (unregistered)
I thought the megapixel Myth is already settled
Then we see some NOKIA apostles here praising, glorifying the 1020 as if it's the be all end all of all camera phones
RRRREEEEAAAALLLLLYYYY????????? I have a jurassic $250 Nikon D40 in my chest box and I'm pretty sure (judging from those samples) it takes better photos than that thing
43. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
and you´re jumping around with this box hanging on your neck? I thought you were the sissy who said that EOS is to heavy, yet the box with a digital camera on your neck is not heavy, right? Be careful, you may snap your neck if you turn your head, sissy. And you´re in denial as always. 41 mpx is not for boasting around. It has got a precise purpose. And this purpose is to deliver outstanding photos and make possible to zoom without losing quality. It was done to prevent putting into a phone optical zoom thus changing a phone into a monstrosity akin to samsung zoom. You got it now or you pretend you still don´t understand?
53. 8logic (Posts: 121; Member since: 05 Mar 2012)
i like samsung, but god damn the zoom looked ugly lol
54. tashreef (Posts: 475; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)
Don't reply him/her, Both are his fake accounts
40. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
shouldn´t have? BEcause your´re saying so??
The biggest lol of this week.
Another dum*@ass who knows a squat what for PureView was invented in the first place. Read white papers...or ask mom to do it for you as you may happen to be illiterate.
37. papss (Posts: 3439; Member since: 03 Sep 2012)
The hating is in full force this morning.... Telling me that even YOU are very interested in what's coming today.
this announcement will tell me if I'm going to get this or sell my N4 and buy something else android and keep my l920
41. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
after a huge flop in the form of zoom samsung crying fanboys will go on strike and hurl everything they´ve got at Nokia just because they´re green with envy. Out of envy their behaviour is.

Rubbish specs and some overhyped 41mp camera lol, this phone will suck monkey balls:EPIC FAIL! NOKIA
