Nokia Lumia 1020 takes over as the most popular Nokia Windows Phone model on Flickr
The Nokia Lumia 1020 may have had a quick life as the flagship Lumia model, but it still offers the best camera on a Windows Phone device. The handset has overtaken the Nokia Lumia 920 to become the most popular smartphone powered by Microsoft's mobile OS, used on Flickr. Cameras on phones produced by the Finnish based OEM are currently the 11th most popular source of photographs posted on the picture sharing site.

Now that the GDR3 update has been sent out by Microsoft, both the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet and the unannounced Nokia Lumia 929 could prove to be even more popular Windows Phone flavored models on Flickr. No, neither has (or will have) a 41MP shooter on back, but both will have a 20MP PureView snapper with OIS. Since both could end up eventually outselling the Lumia 1020, we wouldn't be surprised to see both models top this list.

No Nokia model comes close to one of the all time favorite smartphones made by the company. Over 8.5 million pictures on Flickr's servers were uploaded from the non touchscreen Nokia N95, a phone that is older than the OG Apple iPhone and included an HTML browser and GPS capabilities.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is now the most popular Windows Phone model on Flickr, surpassing the Nokia Lumia 920

Windows Phone is Awesome❕... My experience with my 920 has been amazing.. It's been a year now, and the support, and updates have been plentiful.. It's like a totally different device when I got it.. I can't wait to see what the future holds.

While that is true, I hope the lumia 920 gets a taste of Nokia black

I'm like 99% sure all WP8 Lumia devices will.. I can't speak for HTC, and Samsung devices, but I hope the 8x does because my GF has one.. She loves it.

LOL.. No matter how hard you try it will never work..

Look fool.. A lot of us, including myself have been with WP Before there was the first Lumia device, and we loved it then.. If Nokia didn't exist I would still use the best WP device available.. Nokia has just made my WP experience exponentially better.. So look fool.. Actually, there will be no Nokia Lumia devices anymore soon, and guess what?,, I'm still going to be using WP because of the OS. Lucky for me it's still going to be a Lumia inside, and out... Look you Android clone.. No matter what you say on PA, for the rest of your life, you will never convince a WP fan that the OS is bad, and not to use it.. You simply are wasting your time with every single stupid little negative WP post you make.. Its never ever in a million years going to convince anyone of anything.. Even your Android brethren think you're a idiot❕... Now, you know we all think you're a idiot, so why would you think we value your opinion about WP❔... The answer is so clear... Cause you're a ( ) can you fill in the blank Spectrums❔

I disagree. Microsoft and its WP8 platform exist ONLY because of Nokia. Microsoft would have become irrelevent, otherwise, in the mobile space, with their mundane lack of some basic features.

To sum up Nokia's Lumia devices -
Stunning, gorgeous and cutting edge hardware,
idiotic, stupid and moronic software (Windows Phone OS).

WP is not bad, it's just not for everyone. For example, I just don't think that it fits me, and thats why I use Android and iOS. I'm just waiting that WP ecosystem grows, so I can buy corgeous Lumia with great camera. Not yet. And Spectrums, changes yours translatings softwares.

Your comment is totally irrelevant to what we are talking about, and ultimately doesn't matter.. First My point is speaking for WP Fans, like me, love the OS. A comment was made about how we only by WP devices because of Nokia, and that is simply not true.. We love Nokia, but if Lumia devices didn't exist we would still use the best WP device we could find.. Second, nobody is talking about why WP exists, is still around, or why it's making progress. WTF are you getting that❔ I could care less about why, and I could care less about arguing that stupid unprogressive argument with you or anyone else.. What people like you don't realize is that WP fans don't care about what none WP fans think about the OS, the same as you don't care about what I think about Android.. Personally, I hate Android, but why would I go tell a bunch of Android fans, on a Android related article, that❔ That's stupid, and that would make me appear to be pretty idiotic.. Like I said before.. You will never convince me that WP is a stupid, idiotic, moronic OS because I've been using it for years, and I've used Android, and iOS, but I think WP is the best.. That's my opinion, and I'm sorry if that hurts your feelings, but it's not changing anytime soon.. So why do you continue to waist your time, what in this world are you attempting to accomplish, and why is that so important to you❔Answer those three questions for me please❕

"Your comment is totally irrelevant to what we are talking about"
It very much is.

" A comment was made about how we only by WP devices because of Nokia, and that is simply not true"
You wouldn't be using WP now, if it weren't for Nokia.
WP would have been another Kin like disaster for Microsoft. You do remember those Kin phones don't you?

"Second, nobody is talking about why WP exists, is still around, or why it's making progress."
I am talking about it.

"WTF are you getting that❔"
That WP exists because of Nokia.

"I could care less about why, and I could care less about arguing that stupid unprogressive argument with you or anyone else."
You just did.

"What people like you don't realize is that WP fans don't care"
Pretty much.

"You will never convince me that WP is a stupid, idiotic, moronic OS"
I am not trying to. Non fanboys will see when they use it.

"because I've been using it for years"
Thats the problem.

"That's my opinion, and I'm sorry if that hurts your feelings"
Of course not. I'm actually glad you stand up to your opinion and i appreciate that. What i don't like is when people praise WP when it really needs massive amount of improvements. Your praises will stop/slow WP from getting the much needed improvements.

"what in this world are you attempting to accomplish"
That people don't believe lies spouted by WP fanboys.

"Answer those three questions for me please❕"
I think i've answered all.

Wow❕❕ you have just proven yourself to be the most idiotic person on PA.. Everything you said is a prime example of what I meant about being irrelevant to our conversation, and I could care less about 100% of the things you are talking about.. Now I understand what I'm dealing with.. How old are you❔ It's a real question.. It would help us understand your logic more.

The question is, how old are YOU?

I'm 36.. You❔... Quit wasting time quoting what others say, and finally make a relative comment.. You still have yet to say anything that matters, or is going to have an impact on anything.. You're wasting your time.. People who love WP for what it is right now aren't going to stop just because you don't.. That's just something you're going to have to either deal with, or get over... You need to find a more productive way of dealing with the issues you have about what other people want.. Worrying, and focusing, on what other people want isn't going to get you what you want.. You can keep trying but It's never going to work with me.. Try your immature crap with someone else son because you're wasting your time.

You have much more experience than I do. But then again, I don't get why you keep claiming that I'm making irrelevant statements.

"People who love WP for what it is right now aren't going to stop just because you don't"
I'm not trying to convince WP lovers to hate it. My statements are aimed at those who are contemplating switching to WP. I'm trying to put out the faults of WP out there as a forewarning, since i'm using WP8 and had a WP7/7.5 device before.

You obviously are hurt.. But, I'm compassionate, so I'll tell you what.. I can't help you your self esteem, it whatever is wrong with you, because It's not my job, and frankly I just don't care to.. But, this is what I'll do for you.. My advice is for you to go talk to your mom, or somebody close to you, that can help you identify what your real issues in life are.. Hiding behind the image of some kind of savior to those potential WP adopters isn't going to bring you happiness.. You need to find that elsewhere.. Find a girlfriend, change your work conditions, meditation may help, travel.. Just do something to ease your pain.. I'm sorry, but that's all I can help you with.. I wish you all the best in life my friend.. I'm not perfect, so I don't expect for you to be, but we can all improve..

Thanks for the advice. But i'm sticking to let people know i'm a disgruntled WP8 user. You let people know that you are a happy WP8 user. Let them choose to believe either of us, if they are even looking at these comments.

The only thing that matters is that WP has the highest rate of customer satisfaction than any other platform time after time.. It doesn't matter what a few smartphone nerds online think WP is missing, rather WP devices have proven to be extremely worthy for the average, and above average user.. Whether it doesn't have this or that may matter to some, and ruin their experience, but we are nowhere talking about the majority of users who are actually opened minded enough, and don't listen to the irrelevant crap that people like uneducated store employees, Spectrums, and this kid up here with his quotes keep unnecessarily preaching.. That's all that matters in the real world..

you mean Nokia has the highest rate. WP sucks

WP has been having the highest customer satisfaction rating since well before Nokia came around.. Do you need evidence❔ And, sorry to hear that WP sucks for you.. That's sad, and I'm sorry it hurts you, but remember you can still get a Android or iOS device... Looks like you got lost and clicked on a WP related article.. You should be more careful..

Sounds about right, my main reason however is the camera, I am a proud owner of the lumia 1020, and before it I had a Nokia 808 PureView, and it surely was an upgrade to my aging phone, specially because my symbian phone was becoming like androids, I mean laggy

No surprise there, by far the best mobile camera on the market.

I agree with your statement: the Lumia 1020 offers the best mobile camera, not just on the WP8 platform itself, but for all existing smartphones - with the possible exception being the 808 (However, Symbian is dead, and that device was big and bulky).
