    Wow, 2.6GB of Other Storage? That's awful. At the very least tell me Nokia's Storage Check app is rectifying this issue? That could potentially be a make or break for this device, as the 38MP photos will be taking up enough space in their own right, without needing Other Storage to add to the mess.

    Hey Dan. Consumer Reports is claiming the lowlight video performance is so grainy and dark the lowly iPhone 4s beats it. Can you speak to that in your experience with it thus far. The article also referenced the whites were far too blue tinted which threw off the color in their photos. The entire article was pretty negative to be honest although they did begrudgingly mention it took sharper stills than the other phones mentioned. This is the link that caught my eye which also leads to the Report. The New Nokia Lumia May Have A 41-Megapixel Camera, But That Doesn’t Mean It’s The Best

    I think my post earlier today on the 1020's night shots proves them wrong.

    Storage Check does not fix this issue, it only allows deletion of Temp files, which is not a problem.

    My 925 only has 625MB of Other and my 920, which has been in use for nearly 3 months has 1.4GB. Not sure why the 1020 is so high, but my guess is it's related to media somehow.

    How do you save reframed images to phone. From the pro cam app, looking at an image and zooming in I push reframe then save. It pretends to save and says it does but I can't find it saved anywhere on the phone?
    Mine saves a re-frame. Just understand that the re-frame and original are technically the same, which is why you can re-open it in Pro Cam and re-frame it again.

    Hmm, mine was definitely not doing the reframe saving earlier. but now it is working AFTER I downloaded the 8MB procam update that popped up. Also seems to have changed the reframing interface a bit. Cool Thanks NOKIA!!! And Daniel!

    OK here's a nontechnical question. Why do Americans get so worked up about the difference between $199 and $299 up front prices when the bulk of the spend is on the 2 year monthly plan? Are they so addicted to subsidies that they're mentally unable to factor in the overall cost in their purchasing decision? Or are they lusting so hard after the latest toys that they're signing up even when they have no savings?

    If you choose the option to only save the 5MP version, can you still zoom in and reframe the pictures, or can this be done only with the 34/38MP versions? Also, the focal length of the lens is 26 mm, do you know what the theoretical focal length at the 3x digital zoom end is supposed to be? Thanks!

    Edit: Found the answer to my second question. It's as simple as: 26 x 3 = 78 mm. :)

    If you dont save the 38 MP ones, then you cant reframe (and get the lossless zoom). You 5MP oversamples will appear in the camera roll as normal, so you can do anything as you wish, like crop them (which I guess is reframing in that sense), but they no longer have the links to open them in the Pro Cam app (where the 38 MP files are usually accessible, and reframing is done). So essentially what I am saying is no.

    How fast does the 1020 charge from empty? the HTC One supported fast charge, but had it disabled in the kernel to preserve the life of its non removable battery. The S4 charges really fast at the full 2A speed. How does the 1020 fare?

    Mostly wondering if I can plug in a dead phone and be at 80% after an hour of charge. Can be useful if I'm in need of a long day with the phone away from home.

    This is a good question. My HTC one charges sooooo slowly compared to my old iPhone

    Also, Have you tried the new bracketing feature added this morning? Since it takes a while for shot to shot times, wondering if that holds true when bracketing the 3-5 shots in this mode.

    Probably a combo of many Americans are really bad at math, saving money, and/or the fact that they might have to pay more that $199 when they've been paying that for years for the flagship phone. I don't understand it either (and I'm an American). I also find it very amusing that people are screaming about the $299 price, yet the iPhone with 32GB is also $299. It is just that there is a 16GB option at $199, so that is what always gets advertised.

    No Data Sense?! Sigh...

    Any idea if/when they plan to implement it? Are they simply waiting till they push the OS update out to the L920s, etc. also, or could this be much longer wait.

    I'd really like to see what uses my data.

    I was sleeping last night, but checked my BAttery Level for WP8 graph and it appears to have went from 10% charge to 100% charge in around 2.5 hours. Seems on par with what I was getting from the Lumia 920. Not sure what the HTC One times were like...

    Yes it holds true. I was excited about this feature, but not after trying it. It takes a photo, the processed for a second or so, takes another photo, then processes, then takes the last photo. All in all it takes around 4-6 seconds for the process to complete (for 3 brackets) and 7-10 seconds for 5 brackets. Not bad if using a tripod, but holding steady with your hand can be a pain. Also, you must enable bracketting before EVERY photo it seems, which would get annoying. Cant just turn it on or off.

    When you are using 5Mpix mode you should be able to zoom in "losslessly" at the time of capture.. so you are only loosing the ability to manipulate the large pix if you don't have 38mpix mode off.

    My recommendation is to stay away from the full res mode unless you want to resize, crop, etc. later.. the 5Mpix mode is more than enough for every day photography.

    Hi, great thread, thank you.

    One question, have you found out if the reported barometer they have included does anything interesting? Any built in apps for it yet?

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for replying all our questions, it really means a lot to us!
    not sure if anyone ask this prior...

    Q1) you mention that 1020 did "hang" one time when you were using the Pro Cam, how did you reset/reboot it? Same way as L920?

    Q2) can we use PD-95G Camera grip - as an external battery source to "reboot" L1020?

    Cheers!

    So it's been confirmed that the standard, built in camera app will simply snap shots in the over sampled 5MP format. What I want to know is: do we still get the incredible zoom features that this phone stands for? Does that also apply to other apps like SmartShoot and Panorama?

    Thanks.

    Is there a way to access the 38 megapixel pics other than hooking up to a PC? I am on a Mac and it doesn't mount/recognize the 1020. I want to grab the 38mp pics from the phone and use on my Mac.

    Also, is it normal to see jaggies in the oversampled 5mp pics? Especially on long straight lines?
