    To be fair: It will be released almost one year after the Iphone 5, so it's kinda unfair :)

    Even 920 has destroyed iPhone 5 in all departments except for daylight pics. Once Amber update is out, it will being iPhone 5 on to its knees

    Just as unfair as the iphone screen still being hailed as "retina" when its resolution is the lowest among current flagships.

    The Retina display of Apple is the Retina display. It's just a name.

    It was being touted as a feature when other devices had 720p then 1080p screens but no one seems to care that its lower res now than anything other flagship, its just the WP devices that are continually getting bashed for it.

    The question whether the 2 month head-start over iPhone 5S, can be played to Nokia's advantage.

    If comes October - and Nokia 1020 doesn't sell - then they'll drop the price right down to $150 upfront - like BB had done with Z10.Conversely if they do get traction in media - and 1020 becomes the device to get - well you do the math.

    The latest and greatest flag ship phone from any ecosystem should be expected to beat a 10 month old device, especially at $300 on contract. If it could not then M$ and Nokia have no prayer to ever be relevant in this market.

    To be honest I don't really see the 1020 as the end-all flagship at the moment. I think it's an extremely niche device with a niche crowd. Im sure it's a great device, but let's face it, it doesn't cater to the major audience. I'd rather look at something like the 925 or so.

    From the title of the thread I was expecting to see someone smashing an iPhone 5 with the 1020.

    AMOLED has it's sides. For example one of the features I miss from my N8 was the screensaver clock thing, which is only really battery efficient on an AMOLED screen. The other thing is that on an AMOLED all blacks are really black, cos the pixels are turned off completely as opposed to a backlit screen. 920 has an amazing screen, that's for sure, but I wouldn't say no to a high quality AMOLED screen either. Especially since the WP design language is so full of black that I feel it's even sort of stupid to not use AMOLEDs more widely :D

    Digital spelled wrong.
    Integration spelled wrong (3x) - spectacularly so in the Apple portion.

    I highly doubt any phone anytime soon will beat this camera. Its in a class by itself and its VERY VERY lonely at the top.

    Uhm, retina isn't about resolution alone. It's about DPI.

    Flashy video, but not entirely accurate.

    Some discrepancies I noticed:

    • The 1020 does not have a tripod mount, the grip case you can get for it does. I'm sure there are plenty of iPhone cases you can get that are tripod mountable.
    • What exactly is meant by "Windows Intergration" (sic)? That you can sync it with a Windows computer? Can't iPhones do that, too?
    • The 1020 does NOT support wireless charging out of the box. You have to purchase a special back plate for it if you want wireless charging capability.
    • Faster CPU in terms of GHz does not necessarily equate to better performance.
    • Things like "curved sides", "larger display", and "lanyard hole" are pretty subjective. Actually, aren't most things listed in this video subjective? It comes down to your individual preferences, likes, dislikes, etc.



    On a side note, someone really needs to learn how to spell the word integration. I counted 3 instances of "intergration" and 2 instances of "intergrtation". Not very professional.

    All very fair points, except the comment about wireless charging integration...or interigation...or instagration....or whatever....Yes, you need to purchase a special cover to use wireless charging. But that works because the phone supports wireless charging. The iPhone 5 does not.

    Because it is also one of the smallest screens on a smartphone. So it can be "retina" with fewer dots.

    my brother has an iphone 5 and we both compared our phones with the screens and he said viewing angles and all that the Lumia 920 comes out on top where as we both agreed that both Retina and PureView MotionHD+ are almost identical to one an other but from a far distance the iphone looks a bit shabby and up close it looks almost identical as the lumia 920 because the iphone has better brightness

    Come on now. iPhone 5 is only 112 grams and still has the best GPU on any smartphone to date. Also the iPhone 5S will have a fingerprint sensor.

    Isn't that speculation? Has Apple announced the specs of the 5S and I missed it...remember this one phone ummmm, oh yea a Motorola Atrix already did the finger print thing. Nothing revolutionary..... can only do so much to a phone before everyone copies everyone.

    Half of the features mentioned require an accessory - tripod mount, wireless charging etc. There are endless possibilities out there with accessories for the iPhone 5. Just saying...
