How big it really is: Nokia Lumia 1020 size comparison

How big it really is: Nokia Lumia 1020 size comparison
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is an amazingly compact device when you think about the fact that it actually features a 41-megapixel camera with its sensor almost the size of the one in a Nikon 1 compact camera.

But how big it really is and how does it fare against its biggest rivals in the smartphone field? The Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z and Apple iPhone 5 have all gone for extremely slim, elegant bodies.

The iPhone 5 is the absolute champ with a razor slim 7.6mm body, but the Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z are not far behind measuring 7.9mm in thickness. The HTC One is the thickest one of the bunch with a waistline of 9.3mm.

So how does the Lumia 1020 fare against them? Well, understandably the Lumia 1020 is the thickest of all 2013 flagships. Good news is it’s only slightly larger than the rest. It measures 10.4mm and weighs a fairly average 158 grams. For such a drastic difference that comes with its 41-megapixel camera, that really seems like an engineering wonder.

Update: We had to make one important correction in our size comparison. The Lumia 1020 measures 10.4mm on the side, but the camera protrudes and the hump on the back is larger, reaching nearly 14mm. On the images below, in side view, you'd only see the body of the Lumia 1020 sans the camera module, take into account that in reality the device has a noticeable hump on the back.

Hey Victor, why didn't you kept S4 Zoom beside that 1020, I really wanted to see the side views with humps of both.

PA's side view of the S4 Zoom doesn't even include the grip! It wouldn't be a fair comparison.

Lol and I thought the lumia 920 was huge for what it is. Looks like we have a new winner. Lol

The S4 looks sexy and the Lumia 1020 is thick like a brick.

Aside from the camera hump, The Lumia 1020 is thinner and lighter than the Lumia 920. Awesome!

Soo..the design is ABSOLUTELY THE SAME as on the previous flagship.. yet Nokia fans point fingers on Apple and Samsung when they make subtle changes in design. Hypocrites

but samsung has ben using the same language in designnsince forever across every possible segment. Besides, what´s wrong in using the same design if itś great?

Actually Samsung only started this Last year with the S3, Look at all the Samsung phones released before that, they look completely different from anything else Samsung made, So to say Samsung always does this is a lie unfortunately, cause the S4 and S3 are the only flagships that look similar the S1 and S2 looked relatively similar bout no where near the S3 or S4 same with the note series

you can´t see the bigger picture. Look at samsung phones.

I think the problem is Samsung make a lot more phones with the same design so even though Samsung started using a new design with the s3 which is actually a newer design than the Nokia lumia design which started in 2011 with the n9 but because Samsung make more phones with that design it seems like samsung been using the same design for longer..personally I could care less, these companies have there own design language that they use to associate with there product..when you see a galaxy phone you know it's Samsung's, when you see a lumia yii know its Nokia's and when you see a iPhone you know its apple..all these people who complain oh it looks the same, they need to realise why companies like apple and Samsung have kept the same design language because its part of there brand recognition and its one of the many reasons why they are at the top..

I think the comparison of the 1020, 920, and 808 is a much bigger story than comparing to the iPhone (which is so much smaller in every aspect). That they could cram the 808's camera into the 920's body and make it thinner. Impressive packaging.

I don't understand why the 1020 is SO WIDE (71.4mm wide for a 4.5" device vs 69.8mm for a 5" device (S4) )

Damn that bezel

Bezel is manly, it adds to the great solid experience that is Nokia. The Lumia 920/1020 are the only things that look good with my Powertools, and my hammers made out of old Soviet tanks. If only it could grow a mustache.

I agree... I actually like the bezel.

And yet powerful. By the way phonearena, why are you not writing the thickness around the camera at lumia 1020, it is kind of cheating from Nokia. I understand that they want the phone to look good, but I would also mention the thickness around the camera, because I would show the world that in a 20mm thick phone I managed to put such a camera in it.
