Breathtaking 41 MP BSI 1/1.2" sensor, 3x lossless zoom (up to 6x for HD video), six-elements lens with ZEISS optics, OIS suspension for shake-free videos and blur-free low-light photos. Add to those a powerful Xenon flash and an LED light for video recording, and you easily get the best cameraphone on the market...

this device looks very good and i enjoyed the presentation of it. but i dont know if i can live with paying 299.99 for it. i guess all that camera tech is really expensive. it would be nice to see a break down of what the individual tech costs nokia to make the device like they recently did with one of their low end devices. but i'm one of those people that love having a top notch camera on their smartphone, so i may end up getting it anyways. those 2011 specs still work good in 2013.

Now where is that "CardiWP" user? Who held a so called "NDA" agreement?
The announcement came and went along as expected. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is cool, and awesome and hell innovative(that camera is 'whoa' one coming from a Nokia 808 pureview owner). But nothing which blows the competition out of water while comparing overall everything (except camera ;which people now use greatly with the advent of Social networks ) in every other 'smart' category across other software platforms and what competition has to offer. WP8 is hugely inferior to IOS and Android, their main competitors and I will not even talk about BB10(it's s**t). Microsoft in its next WP update should do a lot more, specially in the SW and HW dept. They should add features which will cover up the current gen limitations as well as announce something dramatic,something innovative to get just a bit ahead of the pack. Over the last 3 WP iterations it has been the same old story, IOS and Android continuing to add features and WP catching up. This plan will not work.
Overall, excited about the phone but not quite really. Buckle up Microsoft, Buckle up. :)

Great phone. A complete package with the best camera in the world. If you want super duper cpu and gpu or you're 13 and play games on your mobile only, go android and keep paying that so-called honami deliver something better than is available in android realm now.
The funniest thing is that fanboys don't see the bigger picture. The best in the industry voice capturing, the best camera and sat nav, great build quality, great support, sturdy shell and super display, albeit too small for some folks.
Chase the quad cores, adrenos and the rest just to show off.

the funny thing about the spec arguement is the people always talking about old specs make up "maybe" 5% of the people that buy smart phones. most people that come into at&t and buy a phone dont even know what quad core is. but if you show them a phone that can take awesome pics with a beautiful screen then they know what that is because they can see it. that is the selling point for this phone. and it is a good one to the average consumer. also the fact that the phone doesnt have a huge screen is another plus. i have many friends that will not go with a 5 inch display just because they think it's too big for whatever reason.

Dude. I wouldn't be totting a symbian device(pureview 808) if I had been after bleeding edge specs and a 2 year old GS2 if I had been after all those things you mention. You are satisfied and I am not. But not with the device, but with the OS and MS's commitment to it.
Nokia continues to churn out great hardware but is failing to catch up with the competition in terms of sales. Reviewers,Techies all credit Nokia for their impressive and great WP8 portfolio. But the sales don't show this. Most consumers go for IOS or Android over WP. Why or what do you think is the case here?

Nokia has raised the bar very high in photo. Let's see Sony's turn with Honami.

This is the phone basically without flaw. I don't consider not having expandable storage, removable back and a lack of a few games a deal breaker.

"Why Nokia concentrate only in Camera, Boring spec from last one year, Nokia you should work at least in BATTERY"

The h/w is very good and has OS optimized in such a way that its capable, compete and leave behind Androlag with Quad / Octa cores. :D
