> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-09-02 10:34 from t}UR - click to readI forgive you if you have trouble reading since NO WHERE in my earlier comments say that the S4 Zoom better than the Lumia 1020.

"If you have read the blog thoroughly, it doesn't indicate that Lumia 1020 excelled in EVERY aspect of the comparison. As the reviewer quoted in the blog, BOTH have its own STRENGTHS"....Still having trouble digesting this?


And another one, "Given a choice between the two, I'd personally pick the Lumia 1020 if I was extremely obsessed with photography on a compact smartphone."...So, which part of this triggered your brain cell to call me a fanboy when you have proven yourself to be a true fanboy by saying this "Just accept it, Lumia 1020 blows away Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and every other cameraphone in the market till date. It's a FACT!"

Anyway, since you said it by yourself that 1020 is the best CAMERAPHONE hence I can conclude that Lumia 1020 is not the best in terms of an overall SMARTPHONE then.

If you never owned or used S4 for a long time, then I'm afraid that you may not even have an idea about how to use them. Reading online reviews alone does not make you knowledgeable. I am also pretty sure that you don't own a Lumia 1020 or any other latest smartphones to start with.

Now you can go to another place to continue your trolling along with your undies that has Nokia label on it. :D

This has a good technology back end. Though it is over priced from a Indian customer perspective. Enjoy!

You even went so far saying Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is better than Nokia Lumia 1020. Lol. From the comparison, everything is clear. There's too much noise in the pictures taken by S4 Zoom whereas there's no noise in pictures taken with Lumia 1020. All those features in S4 are gimmicky and are of almost no use. Just accept it, Lumia 1020 blows away Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and every other cameraphone in the market till date. It's a FACT!

> In reply to Gelvin @ 2013-08-31 09:57 from sSPa - click to readWell, I'm not sure if you have read the blog thoroughly but it doesn't indicate that Lumia 1020 excelled in every aspect of the comparison. As the reviewer quoted in the blog, both have its own strengths.

No doubt that Lumia 1020 is the current best cameraphone that money can buy. I'd consider S4 Zoom as phonecamera than cameraphone. Given a choice between the two, I'd personally pick the Lumia 1020 if I was extremely obsessed with photography on a compact smartphone.

However, no one is complaining about the camera quality of their Galaxy S4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z or LG Optimus G Pro on daily usage unless you compare the results side by side.

I don't think all of the features in Galaxy S4 or S4 Zoom are gimmicky because they are actually useful when those sensible users know how to use them and they are couple of 3rd party apps further extend the usage of these features. Example of things you can do with these features are changing TV/Set-up-box channels or volume by waving your hand, answering call by waving your hand when you are driving, auto-mute the TV when you receive a call, skip music tracks by waving your hand, reading online without worrying about screen turning off and etc.

Not all the features work perfectly like how we expect it to work but it still works and can be improved further some day. Remember the era when Japanese made so many weirdest inventions that we used to think they were all useless? Well, not all of them gone wasted.

Your reply to my post is totally irrelevant. I showed you the comparison of both cameraphones which you had said before S4 Zoom is better than 1020.

Now when I showed you, you just changed the topic to the only thing you can brag about is sales. let me remind you, we have seen the same thing from Samsung as "Samsung Galaxy Camera" but hadn't seen any chart of number of units sold at any tech site. Same about this camera.

We'll see how much this thing will be sold as compared to Lumia 1020.

A piece of advice - Be a man of your words. Be mature and accept the facts. Downgrading your level like this will only make people laugh at you.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-08-31 10:33 from w0Pt - click to readThe things you mentioned are marketing gimmicks. I have a lot of debates with people who use Samsung(sensible people) in the blog area of GSMArena and according to them, these gestures are marketing gimmicks.

I don't think you know anything about the Lumia 1020. The image sensor is not of 41MP. If it would be that big, the cameraphone would be around 16-18mm or may be more in thickness. It's Nokia's pureview technology that oversample images to that high resolution. You should try Google things before accusing.

Also, we have seen the Lumia 1020's thickness as compared to Galaxy S4 Zoom. The Lumia 1020 consists of 41MP with loseless zoom while Galaxy S4 zoom consists of 16MP with optical zoom. If you detach the optical zooming sensor from S4 Zoom, the thickness is still more than Nokia Lumia 1020. Nokia managed to produce the best cameraphone till date in a thin body as compared to Z4 zoom.

Therefore sir, your argument is invalid and consists of lack of knowledge about how both of these cameras work.
