Camera-centric Nokia Lumia 1020 stars in Bollywood music video

Camera-centric Nokia Lumia 1020 stars in Bollywood music video
Like automobile enthusiasts who like to point out each model that passes by ("Look, that's a 1962 Rambler"), many of our loyal readers like to show off their knowledge of smartphones by calling out the name of a model that appears on a movie or television screen. If you have the habit of calling out smartphone manufacturers in a crowded movie theater, you probably will be told to get a life by those in attendance. On the other hand, jumping up and screaming that Donnie Wahlberg uses a BlackBerry Bold 9900 on the hit CBS show Blue Bloods will probably just earn you a rebuke from your spouse or significant other.

What bring this up is an appearance by the Nokia Lumia 1020, on a music video by Bollywood singer and actress Priyanka Chopra. The song is a cover of the Bonnie Raitt tune, "I Can't Make You Love Me." Check it out by clicking on the video below. The device is not even a year old, and will be getting the Windows Phone 8.1 update as will all Nokia Lumia models running on Windows Phone 8.

Because production of the phone occurred before the GDR3 update allowed  Windows Phone manufacturers to use quad-core silicon and support larger screens, the Lumia 1020 is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus with the Adreno 225 GPU. The device is equipped with a 4.5 inch AMOLED screen with resolution of 768 x 1280. Still, the device does offer 2GB of RAM. Imagine what kind of specs Microsoft could stuff the sequel to this phone with now.

Thanks for the tip, Harsh Doshi!

But if you're talking the one with pure Nokia, the winner goes to 808 PureView.

Am I right that the 808 actually has a better camera than 1020? Like the sensor, lens and so on? And that 1020 takes better pictures mainly because of software and more power? I'm not sure though.

A little of both, the lenses on the 1020 are probably better. the sense is back illuminated which is better, imo. Software is probably much more mature in the 1020. Here is a good comparo.

the best cameRa in smartphone definitely goes to nokia. Don't bother about software. Nokia will introduce pure view model for its upcoming android phones. Samsung can't reach near nokia in smartphone camera battle for the following 100 years
