    Not that much into photography. So while the 41mp is great, it does not appeal to me. My 920 suits my needs :)

    I cannot vote. I'd want to get it, but AT&T will not give me an upgrade until next year.

    Laura points out a major flaw in this poll. I'm in the same boat as her. Just got my 920 eight months ago. It will be a while before I can upgrade again. If it wern't for that I would certainly pick one up.

    I really don't know about carrier stuff.

    Here in my country , We buy unlocked devices and use whatever network/carrier.

    Camera wont be beaten for a long time (and only by Nokia themselves), they will update it to make it even better and while I dont take a lot of pictures I would like to get the best ones I can when I do so its a good enough reason to buy one. Just have to get one from Rogers hopefully for Tmobile.

    I want a 1020, but I'm about to switch to T-Mobile and the price is a little high at the moment.

    I'm due for an upgrade on my phone, but I think I'll wait for the price to drop. I do take a lot of pictures with my phone, so I think it would be worth it for me, but I'm not willing to pay that much for a phone. Sorry Nokia, great presentation, but I'll have to wait.

    None of the above; PenTile is the one and only reason I'm not getting it. I'm looking to upgrade from my Lumia 900, but I guess I'll just get a 920 now. PenTile becomes tolerable at 1080p, but no lower than that. I just care more about the screen than the camera. But I'd have paid the premium for the 1020's camera if the screen had been RGB stripe like the 920.

    Were I to buy a device now I'd definitely go for the 1020, but since I upgraded earlier this year it's too soon to spend that kind of cash.

    Got my cyan 920, works great and camera alone doesn't merit an upgrade....ill wait for the next flagship.

    Having a phone with a xenon flash is a must for me after having an n8 with it for the last 3 years. This is just the next logical upgrade, really the only thing out there with it

    Wouldn't that qualify as a cost issue? AT&T will give you the upgrade... you just have to pay full price.

    But yeah, I'm in the same boat with my 920. The only saving grace for me is that I have a second line that expires on odd years, so I'm taking that line's upgrades for this phone. Next fall, I'll use the 920's upgrade for that generation of upgrades. Anything in between, well, I'm SOL and paying full price if I'm that desperate for it.

    I do understand and agree, although just a reminder to those on the fence that the Galaxy S4 is $250 and both the Note 2 and iPhone 5 are $300 as well. So it would seem the pricing isn't as outrageous as we want to think, and ironically, at full price the Lumia 1020 is actually the cheapest of the 4 options (by $10). Go figure. And keep in mind that what you're getting is an excellent smartphone PLUS an excellent, built-in Point-and-Shoot camera... and who wants to carry around a second device?
