New ad for Nokia Lumia 1020 shows how you can use the phone to fool your friends
A new ad for the AT&T branded version of the Nokia Lumia 1020 shows how you can get your friends to believe that you were in the front row of that hot concert instead of standing away from the stage with the rest of those unfortunate attendees. With the Nokia Lumia 1020 it's a simple matter of zooming in on a picture you've already snapped. After that, you rotate, reframe and crop before sending it out on your favorite social network. You can zoom in enough to make your friends jealous.

You would think that with the camera-centric Nokia Lumia 1020 now available, photo sharing site Instagram would finally introduce a Windows Phone version of the app. For now, third party versions of Instagram are available from the Windows Phone Store, like Instance, for instance.

With the Nokia Lumia 1020 on sale now from AT&T, you probably will see this ad blanket the airwaves soon.

If the posts that were deleted read like most of the ones currently appearing, I conclude that they were deleted because they were gibberish and unintelligible. Only Droid_X_Doug has anything useful appearing here.

"Only Droid_X_Doug has anything useful appearing here." Thank you for your kind comment. I do try to post thought-provoking comments. If I don't have anything thought-provoking to contribute, I tend to pass. Although sometimes, opportunities present themselves that I just can't pass up (see post 60 above).

I remember last year when every article use to generate lots of traffic post and users! But now hardly that much. All the regulars don't post cause of PA new system logs. I've never seen any website delete users posts, unless if it's to rude or else it remains for other users to see what others have posted. What a joke all 32 posts has been vanished. Wow... Even the thumbs down has dissapeared.... Joke So what so special about this add....? Just because it zooms in without losing quality it's a big wow thing! "Really" and pictures come on detailed even zoomed in. All this is, is " optical zoom " that Nokia claims "Revolution" really yea wow.... ®

they are just moderated.... i can still click the "show" icon and read the one guy posting the same link over and aover and over again if i am not mistaken... pa did the same comparison why post an external site to give that site traffic? i am surprised he was allowed to post in the first place pa is pa and they have rules... obviously spamming is against them


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

What the ..... All 32 posts have been deleted? Before it use to show "doesn't meet discussion rules, click to view" No Exkurongee I only have a 1 account! I did make an account when Phone arena sent me to a weeks vacation. So when I saw Nokia fanboys, users posting nonsenses like that crazy Chaotic razor that's when I posted or else I don't see me that bothered! The truth there are lots of Wp8 dislikers and bashers, haters! GsmArena is full of them as well as the verge and so many other sites! So your point is invalid! ®

Naw, that's just Microsoft/Nokia using their advertising dollars to the max. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Right, Microsoft paid them to take them down? Just stop.

Stop being jealous papas. Please stop. We understand the pain and rage and struggling and waiting time for it to arrive. ®

I have to agree - the deletion of posts is a bit heavy-handed. Collapse them to avoid the senseless banter/thread hijacking, but don't delete the posts unless they are rude/attack/are otherwise disrespectful. Back to topic - the L1020, what is souring me about the L1020 is the 4 second lag between pics while the computer processes the image. In the 4 seconds I have to wait to get 1 pic with the L1020, I can get 16 with a Sony RX100. Or, 10-ish with an HTC One. Sometimes, the first pic you take isn't the best. Having to wait 4 seconds between pics risks losing the best pic of the lot.

Doug I thoroughly enjoy your comments more than most but we need to stop comparing this phone to a dedicated powerhouse camera.. It's borderline absurd. This is a phone that takes better pictures than all but one and that one is on a dead platform. There are going to be trade offs with such a package.. Either you can take a ton of photos with a lot less detail (HTC one is clearly lacking for such a touted feature) or take less with more detail.

"Either you can take a ton of photos with a lot less detail (HTC one is clearly lacking for such a touted feature) or take less with more detail." Or, you jump out of the box (your text above that I quoted) and find an alternative solution (the RX100). I was thinking about getting the L920 as a back-up phone + good quality point-and-shoot camera for those 'Kodak' moments. Alas, the L920 just didn't measure up, so I looked around for a compact camera and voila - Sony had just released the RX100. Purchase price of the RX100 was close to the L920 off contract, the RX100 powered down was almost the same size as the L920 and the feature set of the RX100 was way better than the L920 camera. So I purchased an RX100. Fast forward to the present, and it seems that things haven't changed much with the release of the L1020. Form factor is a bit improved for the L1020. But the feature set of the camera functions are still lacking compared to the RX100. Price-wise, the L1020 is a little higher than the RX100. Plus, for something like $50 more, you can purchase the RX100 Mark II, and get WiFi communication between the RX100 MII and any Android smartphone running Android 4.0+ (plus, there is improved low-light photography with the MII). If one is in the market for only one smartphone, the L1020 certainly deserves a serious look, but as was shown in the camera comparo article, the camera of the L1020 is not head-and-shoulders better than the rest of the high-end smartphones. I suspect that the new Apple iP5S will have something improved in its camera to show as will the Note III. Same for Sony, although Sony needs to seriously re-examine the policy of releasing their phones for only AT&T/T-Mo.

that 4second wait is from the pro lens "lense" which is a third party app the default camera is much much faster..but you only get a 5mp image

Stop trolling then.. It's pretty simple troll. Figured you would learn after so many vacations but alas that never happens. The problem is that fandroids come in every Nokia/WP section and run it up to 300.. No other sections get so many fanboys spewing hate. Stop being so threatened and enjoy it.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Rotflmfao threatened for what? Please for God sake Fandroids Androidsevery OOEMS are enjoying the very best features available, unlike well behind Nokiawp8. No more like very level headed and proud. Jealous for what...? Papas you are so funny man... ®

45. papss unregistered

What else could it be then? You tell me why it's some idiot commenting all the hate that they have towards a solid platform all the time. Why take the time? Clearly they feel threatened so they need to justify their purchases for another boring phone that has horsepower but nothing to use it on. There aren't apps being written to take advantage of it, only to get rid of the lag is it being used properly and that's just sad. Point is don't hate on another platform for having less horsepower when it performs just fine without it. It's like me calling android weak because I can do more on my pro than any other tablet.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Its called freedom not AA security prison . We deserve freedom not controlled by MsNokiawp8. Even iOS Apple is not that strict. My GOD what a totally lock down os. Solid platform what the hell please... Even iOS is much better bathroom tiles. . Lag is consideration any one will accept not having no apps and games waiting loooooooooong time for apps. They are not idiots they are very smart and ever. Unlike you should say you and your fan fanboys are. Androids fandroids are techy smart wise aware Coming from Android to wp8 is totally nightmare Way to much restrictions Even jellybean us smoother than wp8 transitions. How is wp8 fluid...? Its still half matured and still an unfinished project which will take another 5 years to be on par with Android ™®

.,agree! they are in fact threatened that their beloved OS would sink in a very short of time WP 8 came into existence. they are fearful that people soon wake up in their illusion that specs will not indeed solve the lag, ICS promised that yet failed.

i know why they have been deleted actually i saw 1 user named Ferodeno that user just posted some links of lumia 1020 camera comparison against lumia 920,htc one and iphone 5 from "technobuffalo comparison" and in that comparison lumia 1020 lost against those models. so the fight started and the comment list went long

47. papss unregistered

It's because he has posted it in every article since it was released. Free advertising for that other article, plus that website is just garbage.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

But he was speaking the truth and had well backed up his point with solid grounds. But PA have banned him. Just like that Machidoden guy ®

but i dnt understand why PA just remove those comments?? i didnt saw any abusive words used by that user while posting links

Dud machidoden was begging to be ban with his comments. The rules are simple, follow their rules as this is their site. You want different rules then make your own tech site.. Here I'll help you with the name....androidonly.

* Some comments have been hidden, because they don't meet the discussions rules.
