It all goes back to 2012 when the pureview 808 was launched...the fact that it ran on the so called outdated symbian platform that piece didnt take up well...but the 1020 is an amazing combo of the 41 mps. of the 808 and the benchmark low light photography and the OIS of the predecessor 920...seems like nokia's endeavour is showing fruit now;)...anyways...the device is an excellent masterpiece of hardware and optics.
#has six carl zeiss lenses for the perfect photography unlike the five of 808.
#The sensor format is 1/1.5”
and it is up to five times larger than typical smartphone
sensors.which means par excellent results in capturing the detail.
#The BSI sensor is quite handy when it comes to the matter of low light photography...and comparisons show that 920 and 1020 are best for the same than iphone 5s,htc one and xperia z.
#Interestingly when you capture using 5 mp resolution,the original 34 or the 38 mp image is also saved by default so that you can see the full pic anytime!
#A powerful xenon flash to freeze the moments...and there are various options too where you can customize the working of video light with flash for focus.
#Needless to say about the lossless zoom [upto 3.6x in 5mp stills and upto 6x for 720p video!]
#All these daunting specs in a 10.7 mm sleek device...unlike the s4 zoom which is tooo bulky!![over 15 mm]
#Though it's a polycarbonate unibody it has got the most premium finish unlike samsung!
Now after going through this people might think that why not to buy an SLR for 20 or 30k instead of spending 49k over a phone for camera!!
lol...well its a matter of personal taste...i believe that moments dont tell us before they come into action...we always have a phone in our pocket...we wont prefer a camera putting beside us all time right..??so this is where a cell phone helps to capture special moments!
Still...its not android or iOS...its a windows phone...less customization and apps...so after spending 49k if you ain't gonna regret over it then surely this is your phone...!
It seems that even if this phone has a camera that is so good that it is totally incomparable to any other intelligent phones in the market is has been putted a side in marketing or those Windows/Nokia marketing guys are really sorry loosers.
Anyway this phone works well in all other aspects what I need I mean I read my emails, update my Facebook, share pictures, browse Internet and read local newspapers really smoothly.
