    I have owned both of these phones and while I love the feel of the 920, I liked the weight and solid feel. I do think the 1020 is the best choice if you are jumping on board now. Mainly because it was released later than the 920 and support from Microsoft will continue longer.

    The camera grip is an awesome accessory for gaming on your phone too, it allows for a nice grip while playing as well as the added battery life. Also, as for the shot to shot time. There is a significant difference when you are shooting RAW files if you intend to do the processing on your computer. Otherwise you can set it to take just regular jpeg files instead and it is the same speed if not slightly faster than the 920 because of that 2GB RAM.
    Speaking of the RAM, I noticed a better frame rate with the 1020 while playing Order & Chaos which is a rather big MMO on WP.

    920 performance has been rock-solid for me. No lagging or freezing.

    If you don't need that massive camera, the 1020 is just an overkill.

    Difference between the 920 and 1020.

    Camera
    1 GB vs 2 GB of ram
    Wasn't the extra 1GB RAM dedicated for the 1020 camera?? ...

    I have a 920,,, and still loving it, waiting for 8.1 to hit my neck of the woods

    Yeah, that extra gig makes no difference IRL.

    I disagree. The 1020 certainly plays higher end video games better than the 920, I feel it is due to the extra RAM. It may be because of the different screen but the games certainly were smoother on the 1020 over my 920.

    Just did a reset yesterday on my 920 and now it's smoother than WP8 IMHO. The 920 starts off with the original WP8, so give that a shot.

    That's what I thought. So, really its 1gb, correct?

    I read an earlier post, seems so. Lots of misconception about this if so. People are always exclaiming the benefits of 2gb on 1020...

    I have owned WP's since 7.0. My wife and I have both owned LG Quantums, HTC TItans, Titan 2's, L920's, L1020's and my wife now owns the 1520 and my daughter has the 520. The 920 is a solid phone and the OS and apps run buttery smooth, even now. But on higher end games I noticed an increased frame rate with the 1020. I got all these phones on release day so I know what they are like with a fresh install and after being used for a while (theres not much difference) As I stated before the way the 920 feels in my hand was my favorite out of all the phones, but I do think the 1020 is slightly superior in its specs and fluidity with higher end games (there is no difference with the OS, or games like flappy bird and such.) It is the higher end games, mostly Gameloft games that I noticed improvements.

    Great to see you're getting the advice you need. If the Icon is out of the question, I'd say that the 1020 is newer and has a better camera.

    Real world camera difference between the 920 and the 1020 is not much, unless you're a camera buff. The 920 image stabilization is still one of the best in industry, comparable to the 1020, though the 1020 is slightly better due to more springs in the camera lens than the 920. Battery is more or less the same for both the phones since 1020 uses less power due to the amoled but if you're a camera buff, the 1020 camera would suck the battery like juice, the 920 build is better than the 1020, it's a rock! The 920 would get all the system and OS updates as the 1020.

    To put it together, if you are tight on budget, get the 920 and you won't complain, if you have extra money, go for the 1020 and you still won't complain, lol
    Lumia 1020 does not have springs for stabilizations , ball bearings are used in Lumia 1020

    1020 for sure. The 1020 is basically a 920 with a better camera and twice the RAM

    I have a 920 and if I had the budget for the 1020 back then, I'd get that in a heartbeat.
