Are you getting the Nokia Lumia 1020?

Now that we have all PureView photographic goods combined in the Lumia 1020, and sprinkled with a second generation image stabilization suspension for the huge sensor, as well as pixel oversampling during video recording, not to mention all the manual controls in the Pro Camera app, we wanted to ask you whether you'd be considering the 1020 for your smartphone collection if that's the Nokia you've been waiting for...

Camera = Out of this world Everything else= a big fat Meh If everything else was awesome and that's including the software then I would get it in a heartbeat.....but it's not! Brilliant Camera Nokia and well done but really please focus on something else now as you have proven you are the undisputed camera king until the honami but please enough camera tech now!

Phone looks great but I think I rather keep my carrier and not switch though at the moment

WOW ! all I read is all the android fans down grading this smartphone for the: OS I happen to have a gs3 for metro-pcs/T-Mobile and I got it for work to use the music player I teach fitness classes and I must say I hate it :-( it lags , slow , locks up , I am giving it to my wife I need a smartphone that works and is reliable. I don't care about: games & customization that's for kids who can't keep there hands still. all they want to do is play with there smartphones. I had all the cellphone companies: Verizon , sprint , at&t they are all over price and have there problems. that's why I am with: TMUS now they are the cheapest I am not a doctor or in the emergency service field so I don't need to be on call 24hrs 7 days a week so please save your money people wake up. as far as apps go it will take time but WP & NOKIA will get us there :-) REMEMBER KIDS IT'S A SMARTPHONE NOT A TOYPHONE I must say " SMARTPHONES FOR DUMP PEOPLE DON'T WORK "

Camera is what it sets apart from the rest pal.. Look at Samsung , busy updating specs , their processor, ram , blah blah but no true innovation and look at apple same thing applies to them too , no more innovation, keeps on slimming down their devices and calls them the next generation device , lol , and that's all they can do . You people should be happy that Nokia is innovating and bringing new features. Remember my first point guys!!! ;)

I'd love to get one but there's two reasons I won't buy this. #1 AT&T only. #2 Windows phone OS. Make an Android and Verizon version and I'm all in. Otherwise, I'll just wait for the Note3.

Maybe you like being told what you can and cannot install, I do not. Enjoy what you like and will enjoy what I like. I just wish I could enjoy a Nokia device.

Facebook. Twitter. Flickr. Also third party apps for instagram and vine, with official ones coming soon. Of note, I don't know anyone who still uses instagram. They went back to Facebook and twitter since there were no exclusions there, and people don't feel.compelled to use junk filters to make bad photos even worse.

Don't return a crap device in exchange for a crap device buy something else

Man I actually like WP. it's honestly the OS for me. I honestly don't enjoy android at all. I want to like it but I don't so I'm sticking with them for the time being

Definitely not. There features are only focussed on the camera and that makes the phone ugly. Skip.

Given the revelations today about Microsoft and the NSA, not now, nor will I ever be purchasing another Microshaft product. They like to poke at Google (Scroogled), and it turns out they are as bad, or worse.

I'll be waiting for Motorola's next big announcement. Then I'll choose between Motorola or Nokia. Google or Microsoft.

Too be honest, I have been waiting for this phone. However, it seems that the nokia lumia 1020 lost its appeal because it has comparable specs to its predecessor. The design begun to get redundant (I mean the design principle). If it has more battery and new design language I will not hesitate to get it, after all my galaxy note is getting old. Don't get me wrong I still like it because it brings new innovation in the camera department of a smartphone. But I will wait to the response of Sony.

I don't take things personal :-) but some people do ;-( don't get mad @ the truth. wp & nokia apps will get better in time that's all it needs. a great os for a great smartphone DOES NOT NEED TO BE ROOTED OR FLASHED TO MAKE IT WORK BETTER/FASTER. if it does then the os/smartphone has lots of flaws :-(

SOCIALIZING NOT A "TOYPHONE" GREAT JOB WP& NOKIA :-) KEEP IT UP THAT'S MY STORY AND I AM STICKING TO IT :-)

I already have Nokia 928 6 months from now or earlier when Verizon gets it's version of this Nokia smartphone I might if there were a way to have an in contract upgrade. other wise I am more interested in the coming Microsoft GDR and Windows phone 8 blue updates that will give some very needed new software feaures

what's the point for having a 1080p resoluiton on a phone anyway? what's the big deal anyway? If I want that kind of resolution, it will be for my laptops for better viewing at the photos took by this mosnter.
