The Lumia 1020 is Nokia’s newest wireless smartphone. Nokia partnered with Microsoft and uses their Windows Phone 8 operating system on their range of Lumia devices. We have seen several different Lumia devices introduced over the last several quarters. Each is similar, however each has it’s own unique feature.
“The Lumia 1020 special feature… the camera. Pretty much every smartphone has a camera, but the power of this one is incredible. The size of the camera is larger than on other smartphones. It results in a rounded bump on the back of the smartphone,” says Principal analyst Jeff Kagan.
If you want the best phone mainly for the camera, then you’ll love this Lumia 1020. It’s a 41-mega-pixel (MP) camera and it does HD video recording. There is a Xenon flash with six physical lens elements. The AT&T locker lets users store 50 GB of photos and videos at no additional charge. It has a 4.5 inch display, and software to make it all work together.
“Did you ever take a snapshot or video with another phone, and when you enlarge it, things get blurry? This camera is much better than the others. On the other hand Windows Phone 8 is still not as updated as the Apple iPhone iOS and the Google Android OS. The number of apps is still not up to that speed yet. All said however, the camera is awesome,” says Kagan.
“This line of Nokia Lumia smartphones is catching on. They are growing, slowly, but growing. They are now number three after Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy with Google Android. They recently pushed Blackberry out of third place,” says Kagan.
“So in my opinion, the camera is best reason to buy the Nokia Lumia 1020. If you are interested in the camera, you might just love this phone. The rest of the smartphone is very similar to other Nokia Lumia phones,” says Kagan.
