Nokia Lumia 1020 review: View from the top

21 September 2013
PureView is on its way down in history and while we loved the Nokia 808, it will be the Lumia 1020 that makes the name more than a footnote. With a modern OS and improved design of both the camera and the...

This phone has serious software imperfections .After purchasing this phone from Amazon for $468 in April of 2014 the camera stopped working within a few months.The seller denies warranty and Microsoft does not have the common decency to reply to enquiries as to who will honor the warranty.

I have this piece of soap bar. 1020.. Really??? Really you ppl out there found its camera so sooo damn impressive?? I was nokia freak! And when I bought this with the only primary need as camera, this dissapointed so much. Pictures caught with this 33+5 mp camera are no better than a 5 mp camera of other phones.. Pro cam app freezes the phone so many times. Yes it does!

Phone quality is very good.
Camera awesome.
Battery life it's SUCKS! You need an external battery to survive all day, and I'm talking about 15min. of speaking, maybe 5 minutes of soft mail accounts to push, no net surfing, no whatsapp. I'm very disappointed about the battery...maybe it's about the windows s.o. energy management.

AnonD-246560, 22 Mar 2014Hello, I am using N9 at the moment, I looking to buy this (... moreI should go for the 1020 it's much newer, very sleek and good design and more future proof. The 808 is good too but I'd go for the 1020, there are very nice Nokia apps for the camera and photos you made.

Hello, I am using N9 at the moment, I looking to buy this (1020) or 808 PureView? Which one is better?

(I love taking photos and videos, not so much into social connectivity, and to be able to close apps I dont use at the moment).

Best phone I ever have used Nokia is solid and reliable good quality.

Four months of use and still very happy with the phone.

Very good phone I'm using it for some time now. Smooth and enough apps. And the black with amoled works out very well, it looks amazing. consider to buy an wireless charging cover in the matching color if that's available.
