i'd say the 808 is unmatched...the image isn't sharper but much much cleaner as in much lesser noise and artifacting and there's much more original color not saturated like the 1020

808 has the better camera and flash strength, but lacks the modern apps. It also has the stability and power of Symbian, without the locked-down nature of Windows Phone. See the WP customer service forums for all the bugs and weaknesses people are experiencing with WP. I personally find WP to be very beautiful, but until MS fixes its bugs and weaknesses, I think I'd be very frustrated with a WP. I've tried my wife's 520 WP and get frustrated pretty easily with it. Be sure to try a WP before you spend the money for a 1020. People seem to love it or hate it. I really like the 808's perfect handling of the SD card expansion (I use a 64GB card full of music), which the 1020 doesn't have. The 808 also has an HDMI port, which the 1020 doesn't have. In general, the 808 provides a natural image while the 1020 provides images that are more sharpened and oversaturated. You can process the 808's images on your computer to achieve the same results, but you can't unsharpen and oversharpened image. If Microsoft can fix the bugs and weaknesses of WP, I may be tempted by the upcoming 1820, but until they sort out the problems of duplicated music files, add sound profiles that can be automated, add a file manger, and generally bring WP up to par with iOS and Android, I'll probably stay with my trusty 808. Be aware, though, that developers have stopped creating new apps for the 808 (although many excellent apps exist now and are being updated for Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, SoundCloud, EverNote, etc., so the 808 experience is still very usable for a business user today. I'm not much of a gamer, so the games on WP or Xbox integration don't mean much to me.

I should also add that the "oversharpened" and "oversaturated" is a personal preference. Some people prefer the results of the 1020. Others prefer the more natural results of the 808. Again, check photo comparisons online to see for your self. The All About Symbian web site has some great real-world comparisons. The authors are fans of both phones, so they give a pretty fair appraisal.
