Best camera ever!
By Jamppa Björg | 30 Jan 2017 | 30 Jan 2017
It is a bit slow, but the pure image quality from the ~40Mpix sensor is superior. Much better than any other cameraphone, including modern smartphones. And this thing is so old! Where is the development? Only premium compact cameras are better, and DSLRs of course.

I agree, a 5 Star rating
By Richard Campbell | 3 Nov 2015 | 3 Nov 2015
The Nokia 1020 is as advertised. A great phone; great performance, great results. Why people bought it for such a high price I don't know. My phone was half of what your site lists. So great deal and a great phone. Performance plus; If I take a picture and show it to other people, they are amazed at the quality. Every time. This phone is the best phone I have run across in years. 5 Star

The Beast is BACK!
By Praful Yadav | 5 May 2014 | 5 May 2014
It all goes back to 2012 when the pureview 808 was launched...the fact that it ran on the so called outdated symbian platform that piece didnt take up well...but the 1020 is an amazing combo of the 41 mps.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 after spending 49k if you ain't gonna regret over it then surely this is your phone...!
