Nokia has 41 reasons why you should buy the Nokia Lumia 1020

0. phoneArena 28 Jul 2013, 10:23 posted on

Nokia has 41 reasons why the Nokia Lumia 1020 should be your next smartphone; as you can imagine, most of the reasons have to do with the 41MP PureView camera on the back of the device. For example, the Optical Image Stabilization on board the camera brings blur-free pictures while dual capture gives you two images of each photograph you shoot...

Honestly no. I didnt mean to call anyone out. I just saw your comment and commented on what I saw. I do love Android but I wasn't co-signing 25. I didnt even know who you were replying to. "Android Fanboy Plague"? I honestly refuse to go into a WP8 vs Android discussion. Its severely redundant on this site at this point. I just respect everyones choices and opinions. Yours and his. Now... back to flashing this rom.

I would not mind Windows Phone, I mean hey, at least it's better than Symbian.

But this phone has a smaller sensor than 808, no ND filtre, shorter focal point, and couple of other things I forgot worse than 808.

Also 1020's algorithms are terrible, it takes very grainy, noisy and oversaturated images. And PureView oversampling does not produce images are smooth and noise free as 808, which could produce practically noise free images in good daylight.

If it has 1" sensor and was really better than 808 in every way, I would've been temped, but as it is now, no.

I am sorry, but according to various sites testing and comparing phones, the Lumia 1020 is the best smartphone camera on the market, if that is not good enough for you, go buy something else.

Is that infograph a picture from the lumia 1020s camera because the detail sucks making the text low quality.

i went to at&t yesterday and played with the lumia 1020 for about 20 minutes. i brung my lumia 920 with me. i came away impressed with other things besides the camera. the camera of course was as advertised. the pictures were very detailed and the color representation to what my eye was seeing and what actually came out in the picture was accurate. the video's it took looked even better than lumia 920's video's. that surprised me. the screen on it although not 1080p was looked very good. having played with my lumia 920 alot and now this 1020 i have to say it's amoled screen is better than the lumia 920's. i didnt notice any ghosting when scrolling on the screen in the UI, web browser or apps. (amoled screen are known to have ghosting when scrolling like on my gs4). the lumia 1020 was noticeably lighter than the 920. to me the difference in numbers of the weight of the 2 are nothing but when you hold it in your hand you notice the difference. when taking a picture there was a 2 second pause (me and the sales rep timed it) for the camera to save the 38mp and 5mp picture. to me this is normal when saving a picture that big. all in i think nokia has a winner here.

i'm going to wait though for the gdr3. i'm hoping nokia does a 1080p screen (i've grown to like 1080p screen from my gs4) with quad core cpu and the 41mp pureview camera this christmas. that will be my christmas present.

I just check this phone has no microSD card slot you cannot store all your high resolution photos inside your phone but good for email and facebook albums.

the lumia 1020 has 32gb space. lets say you have 20gb left after the hard drive format and OS and apps and music etc. that's 20gb to have for high res images. the size of the images depends on how much detail is in the picture so they will vary. when i took pics with the lumia 1020 using 38mp pictures, the size varied from 30-50mb. that's alot of high res pictures you'd need to fill up 20gb. i think it will be just fine. keep in mind, most people wont keep the 38mp pics on their phone to share on social sites. they'll use the 5mp oversampled pic instead that retains alot of detail also.

with 20gb you could store 512 40Mb photos. Thats not that much.

selective reading i see. you missed this part:

"keep in mind, most people wont keep the 38mp pics on their phone to share on social sites. they'll use the 5mp oversampled pic instead that retains alot of detail also."

will be alot more than 512 photo's.

Not to mention that they aren't 40 MB so the argument is invalid.

i guarantee every single person bashing this phone, or wp8 in general has never used one, i myself was diehard android until i got my 928, yes there are some things i miss, google now was amazing, and all the google interconnectivity were amazing on android (duh, made by google), and there are some things you have to get used to, but such is life, im not bashing android or iphone or wp8, they all have their plus's and their minus's, and to each their own, and i know this will fall on deaf ears, but stop bashing what you dont know, because what you dont know shows when you bash it

As silly as it is we are all passionate hence the reason we fight. We will never persuade each other but that doesn't mean we don't try.

I love reading all the fandroids comments hating on Nokia. These are the same fandroids that say nobody will buy Iphones, but Apple keep selling over 11 million Iphones worldwide every month. Nokia would be happy with those numbers.

@Troll, house was not built in a day, android has been in
Existence for years and windows phone is just new in the game
And yet it runs very very smooth than android, without any lags
, I use galaxy s3 and it runs jelly bean 4.2.2 yet force close still
Appear in some occasions. Sooner or later the whole game will change
. 1020 is my next phone. Troll I will let you know when I get it.. ??.........

The gs4, or any other crappy android phone, don't even come close to the 1020. I'm sure you've seen a few $hitty camera comparisons on different tech sites portraying the Lumia range as nothing exceptional; What you won't see however, is the difference that a few adjustments to the camera's settings can make to the image quality of photos taken using a Lumia 920, 925, 928, and 1020. Small things like increasing the shutter speed in low light to compensate for camera shake (Something even top of the range DSLR's suffer from) and keeping the ISO at reasonable levels. Remember, "auto" may work fine on the gs4 and iphone, but it doesn't do a very good job when used on the Lumia range of advanced cameraphones.
