Nokia Lumia 1020 gets a fan-made promo video showing 41 million reasons to switch
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a device that we are really holding our breaths for. It is believed to feature the amazing 41-megapixel camera from the 808 PureView with lossless zoom and even optical image stabilization (OIS). Not just that - the Lumia 1020 aims to integrate this camera in a body as thin as that of the Lumia 920, save for a slight hump on the back. That huge sensor has to go somewhere after all!

If Nokia does all that, the only thing that will stop it from selling it would be bad marketing. Now, to show what good marketing should look like, someone as excited as we are has compiled a fan-made video. Omar Pirela, a graphic designer, animator and video editor from Venezuela, brings us this awesome promo video showing 41 million reasons why you should switch to the Lumia 1020, aka Nokia EOS. Plus, it’s all 3D animated and invites you to the July 11th unveiling event in New York city.

We are definitely convinced and excited. What about you?

I think it's a very good ad, but there hasn't been a single Lumia commercial (since the 900) that advertises anything besides the image capabilities. Everyone now knows that Nokia devices have great cameras and it would be foolish not to include it in the Lumia 1020's ad, but people need more incentive to buy the device. How how is OS, screen, build quality, etc.

41 million reasons to switch, it's funny they say this. As if each pixel is a reason. It's like saying 1920x1080 reasons to switch.

It's not funny, it's just that there really is no reason. A camera isn't a reason to switch phone at all. Sure it's nice to have a good camera, but that won't attract anyone, as most phone cameras are decent enough now.

I'd switch for a better camera, but since I already own a Nokia with a great camera, I haven't felt the need to, since Nokia makes the best phones and phone cameras in the world.

Care explaining how they are the best phones in the world at the moment I'm not talking about the past....I expected biasedness from some people but not you -box-

said a blockhead who is the most biased-toward-Nokia/MS troll on this site
For him it's the best and their cameras are the best (which is true as the have got the most advanced tech in this area not to even mention experience). You may shut your hole and that's all what you can do. Don't tell others what's the best,

Paradox is another lame brain teenager who thinks that a quality camera has no place in a smartphone. Some of us actually take our photography more seriously, and do more than take pictures of ourselves getting plastered at the bar. Do what suits you, but don't be a jackazz and pretend that you speak for everyone...

I speak for the majority of people. If the camera was that important, then nokia might have some business, but it obviously isn't enough. I don't take pictures of myself as well, to be honest with you, I let other people with real cameras do it, and then just take the pictures off of them :)

Also, I do believe that a quality camera has a place in a smartphone, and that's just it. It has a place, it doesn't make it.

The sum of all parts makes the Lumia 1020 a formidable competitor. The Lumia 920/925/928 were already excellent smartphones, and the addition of the 41MP large sensor simply adds greater value to already awesome product...

I'm afraid not. General consumers won't be able to tell the difference in a lot of shots, so why would they buy that joke of a phone. Nokia are sticking with their old ways I guess. They continue to make basic phones with cameras, I feel like I'm in 05...

for me camera is enough reason. Better than another part of angry birds or asphalt or some shi*@* custom roms. I don´t want a decent camera (in fact, they´re far from being decent). I want as good as possible. Hardware is appreciated more than software in my point of view. And if it doesn´t need monstrous power plant to run efficient, what for put that in

"Not just that - the Lumia 1020 aims to integrate this camera in a body as thin as that of the Lumia 920, save for a slight hump on the back."

That is the first time I have heard the 920 referred to as "thin" by any phone site even though it actually is a thin phone. Amazing...

considering the amount of technology, sensor´s size, xenon flash and the rest it´s an achievement.

Hey everyone, quick question. For me the most important part of a smartphone is the camera, as i love photography. I really love android, so i am exited for the Hanomi if the specs live up to what they are rumored.

My question is do i cope with WP and get the Nokia EOS/1020 or go with the android Hanomi/Xperia i1 route with android?

My personal view is to stay with android....Sony has long experience with there cameras and are often very good! There is no question the EOS is hood and maybe a tax better than the Honami but with Honami you have android which in mine and your opinion is better than WP and Sony always shows brilliant camera features!

Android is great...for sharing your banking and other personal information with the rest of the world, via malware. No thanks ;o)

if sony no problem they have a great build quality but less powered camera compared to EOS, but if any other cheap plastic, so sad, only some cheap gimmicks and fancy covers.

I think only a better camera option like 41mp can't help of Nokia to gain attention through this ad because there is BLINK FEED, ZOI, SENSE 5 BY HTC. BRAVIA ENGINE 2 TRILUMINOS DISPLAY BY SONY , TOUCH VIZ AND HIGHLY INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY BY SAMSUNG so Nokia has to do somthing more innovative

25. jackhammeR (Posts: 1548; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)


yeah...most of those are based on what Nokia has done and Motorola. Basics belong to these two. period. The rest is just using.
Blink feed looks like windows platform, bravia was a rubbish, triluminos is a tft tech and we are yet to see whether it pays off
so, great innovation...not to mention that android was a rip off of ios from the beggining

I stopped reading your comments with SS and innovation. Blink feed is WP8 lite, Brava engine has terrible viewing angles. What else do you have?

That's quite a well-done fan-ad, especially if just going off leaked photos. That said, I believe all the 1020s have a matte finish, so I suppose the artist used 920s and edited the backs with the charging cover contacts and lens assembly, hence the gloss.

One reason that i have for not switching is it is WP* ... and that overshadows these 41 million reasons.

and please guys don't forget Nokia ruled back about 15years leaving Samsung,apple etc far behind it. And from 2007 onwards after apple introduced its iphone Nokia started losing its share. Anyways Its true that windows phone are not so open as android(linux based) but windows phone has a different taste. And its interesting to see what windows phone holds for us in the future. Its a competition not a WAR so cool down guys!! Chill..n take ur coffee! Enjoy the show..:)

the problem with Nokia is that they don´t reveal their tech to audience. They´ve got much more interesting technology up their sleeve but decisions to hold them back is irrational.
