I´m using my N8 zll the time since I bought it almost 3 years ago. If I have a comfort situation and I know I will have plenty of time to set everything right I can take my camera. I took a few days off and went on fuerta ventura last year. I could take my time and take photo after photo without rush. Alas, in more down-to-earth situations I want to be certain when I reach my hand out to take a pic that it will be fast and accurate. I don´t carry a camera on me all day long, but a cellphone is a must. Got the point kiddo?

I agree. If i want a high end camera, i'll go out and buy a high end camera rather than buying a phone that comes with a high end camera but not much else.

Anyway. I wonder why people bitch and bitch about specs. A 720p screen is as good as a 1080p on a small screen, unless you have your phone in your eyeball of course. Specs are used to run the OS. All of us would raise a brow if these were on an Android, but WP does not need them, it's extremely smooth. Better specs also lead to worse batteries. 2 Cores is enough for WP honestly.

And? No LAG No bugs No viruses No spyware No hole in the backdoor permitting access to the whole phone No lockscreen bypass (lol) And the apps are on par (FB, Twitter, Viber, Tango, Whatsapp, Spotify), except for a couple major holes (there is an unofficial insta app with video support). And the quality is there, the WP store guidelines are very strict and don't let crapware like "hot sex stories"(currently #3 on the top new apps).

The apps are absolutely NOT by par with iOS, neither with Android ;-) And Windows is the most popular OS for virus (Android doesn't have it cause it's Linux based) troyan, malware, backdoors, BSOD... and many others :D

kid. You are confused. You mixed windows for pc with windows mobile. Delete your account or think twice before posting.

Android Doesn't have virus? It's like "a prostitute saying, she's virgin"... LOL

the no bug, viruses, spyware is misleading. wp don't have them because theres not enough users; look at windows (pc) . the other stuff been fixed. personal, i can't stand wp because its so boring. the phone has become an extension of you and i would like it to reflect me not MS

+1. Excellent point! I think that can be applied to all other OSs and even a few Android OEMs. When I get a new phone, the first thing I do is change launcher to look like MY phone. Sense and TouchWiz are out of there, Blur isn't too bad. But you can't do that with any other device. We customize just about everything else in our lives, so why should we be able to customize our phones?

Its obvious you have never used a 1080p screen phone, go and have a look again mr, the comparison is day and night obvious, 1080p is a lot sharper and cleaner than 720p at any angle you look at it. And talking about specs, its not just the flat UI that uses those specs, think about heavy apps/games, and surely do they lag and stutter on those lacklustre specs on windows phone, plus lots of effects are stripped away to make games bearable. I used the Nokia Lumia 920 a bit so don't even start to lie.

don´t give us that 1080p crap again. Your tv or lzptop have significantly lower ppi and sharpness but you don´t grudge about. It´s a phone. You take a snap and transfer it on the bigger screen and to examine it 720p is more than enough. 330 ppi i more than enough. Great refresh rate and unmatched protection against sunlight. I´ll take those over halfbakes 1080p screens any day.

they can have lower resolution because we view them at a greater distance. i can tell the difference comparing my N4 and htc one (up close) at a distance, probably not; but than again, i am nearsighted lol power consumption is a valid argument.

let this baby show us! 2.5D gorilla glass 3 ?? thats more dangerous! even more harder than L920? :'( the 'pro cam' and 'nokia smart cam' ? s**t.. samsung must be crying with its 'galaxy NX' .. :D

You know what's dangerous? Phones that explode in your pockets. And you acting as if the Galaxy NX won't be Galaxy Camera 2. The only real competition this baby is going to get is from the Sony Honami (of course if they fix their algorithms).

31 million reasons too many. A camera phone shouldn't have more than 10MP. Another Nokia gimmick.

E-X-A-C-T-L-Y I thought the megapixel Myth is already settled Then we see some NOKIA apostles here praising, glorifying the 1020 as if it's the be all end all of all camera phones RRRREEEEAAAALLLLLYYYY????????? I have a jurassic $250 Nikon D40 in my chest box and I'm pretty sure (judging from those samples) it takes better photos than that thing

and you´re jumping around with this box hanging on your neck? I thought you were the sissy who said that EOS is to heavy, yet the box with a digital camera on your neck is not heavy, right? Be careful, you may snap your neck if you turn your head, sissy. And you´re in denial as always. 41 mpx is not for boasting around. It has got a precise purpose. And this purpose is to deliver outstanding photos and make possible to zoom without losing quality. It was done to prevent putting into a phone optical zoom thus changing a phone into a monstrosity akin to samsung zoom. You got it now or you pretend you still don´t understand?

shouldn´t have? BEcause your´re saying so?? The biggest lol of this week. Another dum*@ass who knows a squat what for PureView was invented in the first place. Read white papers...or ask mom to do it for you as you may happen to be illiterate.

The hating is in full force this morning.... Telling me that even YOU are very interested in what's coming today. this announcement will tell me if I'm going to get this or sell my N4 and buy something else android and keep my l920

after a huge flop in the form of zoom samsung crying fanboys will go on strike and hurl everything they´ve got at Nokia just because they´re green with envy. Out of envy their behaviour is.
