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.

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).

Nop, I disagree. 808 is muscular phone, not fatty.

Compared to S4 Zoom it is beautiful. Symbian, screen and performance is awful.

Not surprised, but I wish the unlocked price of the Lumia 1020 would come down a little more
