    First of all, I'm a huge Nokia and WP fan.

    However, I can't get my head around why Nokia/Microsoft can't seem to ever release a "complete" product.

    The 808 is still the king of smartphone Cameras, but seemed more like a concept phone, with a dated OS that deters 95% of smartphone buyers.

    The 1020 was supposed to be the succesor, however it's internals doesn't seem to match the camera, and the pure camera experience to some extend is a downgrade from the 808(Smaller sensor, much slower shot-to-shot times).

    The 930 is a shrunken version of the 1520(Which by all means is a fantastic phone, but given the screen size, targets a niche market) missing the great battery life, sd card slot, assertive display technology amongst other features. I'm purposely not taken glance into account, as I don't expect this from other smartphone manufacturers.

    I understand producing a smartphone isn't easy, but seeing Nokia/Microsoft waste so many opportunities is just sad. Hopefully, when the merger has begun completion and different departments have been better integrated, concept-to release times will increase and market share will grow.

    To me my 1520,is complete. Big screen, sd card, powerful, awesome battery, glance, wireless charging,32GB and the camera is perfect for me. Everything else is a bonus like glance. I hear what your saying but there is a perfect phone out there for everyone's needs but sometimes it may not be available outside a certain country

    I'm more of an Android user but even I agree that Microsoft releases some very good devices, and the 1020 did have a better sensor than the 808 Pureview.

    If you don't believe me, head on over to Pocketnow's comparison between the 808 and 1020's camera.

    Most of Nokia's flagship devices are still, for the most part "complete".

    As previously mentioned "complete" is a subjective term and not used in regard any manufactured item.

    Long story short, an item is planned to meet certain specifications (in the case of a computer device like a smartphone it is hardware and software). Once functionality is determined to meet the specifications (which may change during the process), the item is released in accordance to a pre-specified time frame.

    Bugs, functionality issues, functionality enhancements? Sure, but that's what updates are for.
