I thought there'd be many people, even Nokia fans who would agree with me that the 1020 looks quite ugly (mostly from the back) but I've been lurking round the forum and no one has said such a thing...I mean, we all know it has a brilliant camera, but how can you not say a word about that ugly, circular hump? I much prefer the hump-less albeit thick design of the 920, and I also wonder why they made the camera part circular, it just looks like it doesn't fit in a rectangular device to me. Making it rectangular would have been better, but a black strip like the 920 would have been the best.
Seriously guys please tell me I'm not the only one...

I don't think you are the only one, I don't love it either but I believe most people realize that there need to be sacrifices made for this type of device and you sure can't please everyone.
Sure Nokia could have chosen to make the phone a brick, maybe adding a slightly larger battery and wireless charging to increase the thickness to make it flush, but then you will have just a many whiners complaining its too thick. The way it is now, you can increase the thickness using the optional plates (either wireless or batter/camera grip) to whatever suits you best.

A month or two back when I saw the original shell of the phone with the big circular cut out I thought it would not be a good looking phone. However, Nokia seems to have made the phone look pretty good with the cap on the hump. The cap actually makes the hump look like it means business.
Of course with the technology crammed in there you have to make some sacrifices.

All of the tech blogs that covered it yesterday said it looks a lot better in person than it does in photos, and actually feels great in the hand.----

Actually, I'd rather have the 1020 to have a different design language, just like the N8.
Otherwise, a thicker design is fine.Reviver of Forum Games! I'm TheWPCTraveler over on Nintendo Life, as well. You'll also find me over at gamrConnect as well, because I like numbers.

I actually agree that the hump is bit of an eye sore. It's just out there! Baby got back!!! I'm actually considering getting my first black Lumia phone. I think the black circular hump blends in better with the black body.

Man I feel the same the camera hump looks downright ugly, and my main concern is since I like to keep it protected, the hump is going to make it more difficult to find a case that just in case it drops, it doesn't hit the camera. I really don't know what else to say I mean battery life is also a huge concern, it is the same size as the 920, but since the camera has to use more power to down sample the picture I would assume it would eat the battery quick
