The Lumia 1020 has a hump alright. But the lense doesn't burst out of its shell when one wants to take a photo.

Photography for dummies: Lesson 101: That 'bursting out of lens out of its shell' is called optical zoom. All reputed and DSLRs do that.

STILL, the quality doesn't match the "hump" of the Lumia 1020, even after offering optical zoom.

The xenon flash is enough reason for me to get this over any other Android phone.
