Nokia Lumia 1020

 

Is this the best mobile phone camera ever produced?

Excellent camera in most respects, Punchy, colourful screen, Excellent build quality

Camera processing is sluggish, Camera lens housing causes handling issues, Not much more powerful than entry-level phones, Windows apps/games selection is poor

Nokia Lumia 1020 camera review

 

Smartphones have not only got smarter in recent years, they've also developed so much in the camera department that there's an argument to ditch the compact camera altogether. That, it seems, is the Lumia 1020's ultimate goal - to attract photo-savvy...

Image stabilisation great to assist with shots in low light, bright exposures, manual controls available, touchscreen is responsive, inherent smartphone abilities to share/apps, raw files hold plenty of detail at low ISO settings

Chunky for a smartphone, image quality can't always rival a dedicated compact camera, some settings may confuse the uninitiated, no microSD/SD storage, tricky to hold without accessory grip

Let's cut to the chase: the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the smartphone to beat when it comes to photography. Its camera is a serious bit of kit that, given the right conditions, will create exceptional shots.

Nokia Lumia 1020 review

 

It's not the best camera ever or the best phone ever, but the Nokia Lumia 1020 is by far the best cameraphone ever

Ultra high-res photos ; Proper flash and manual camera features ; Very capable Windows smartphone

Heavy and slippery ; WP8 still lacks some key camera apps ; Pricey

Not just the best cameraphone ever, but one of the smartest non-SLR cameras we’ve seen

Nokia Lumia 1020 review

 

Sometimes it's easy to confuse the abundance of smartphones that release throughout the year. Many of them are the same thing as the year before, but with an upgraded chip, crisper display or smaller bezel, at best. We also thought a lot about how the...

Camera is very good, Windows Phone remains solid, Nokia's hardware is still brilliant

Can get very hot, extensive camera use can kill the battery in just five hours, Windows Phone apps still lacking

We also thought a lot about how the 1020 compares to the DSLRs from Canon, Nikon, etc. It certainly has many of the manual settings, creating a DSLR/phone-like combo for consumers.

Can a brilliant camera alone save the once-great brand?

Great camera ; Slim design ; Good battery life

Windows Phone 8 app ecosystem ; No expandable memory ; $299 is a little pricey

Nokia Lumia 1020 review: All snapped up

 

The Nokia Lumia 1020 was the ultimate cameraphone, but does it still hold up?

Top of the range camera ; Decent display

Windows Phone OS

We're blown away by Nokia's Lumia 1020. It's the first phone that properly replaces a compact camera; we can see ourselves doing most of our photography on the phone and leaving a compact camera, or even a CSC, at home most of the time. It's an...

Nokia Lumia 1020 review

 

The Lumia 1020 can be thought of as a replacement for the 808 PureView. That model also had a 41Mp camera offering high-quality photography for a smartphone but was severely hindered by the Symbian operating system.

The Lumia 1020 has an amazing camera, the best in a smartphone, and will tempt most smartphone photographers. However, it's expensive for what is essentially a now out-of-date Lumia 920 with a better snapper. Poor battery life and a lack of good apps...
