    I'm a little ocd and the 920 ear mic is a lint trap. I believe that is where dust enters ffc (I've had multiple warranty returns for this issue). In your opinion, does the mic look smaller, better designed, or shallower than the 920s?
    Also, can you find time to play "skulls of the shogun" for 20 mins and see how hot the 1020 gets, my 920 burns up while gaming?;)
    I would also like to know if it get's hot during gaming (e.g. Skulls of the Shogan for 20min as suggested above)

    Dan a couple of other reviewers have noted the camera / Pro Cam completely locking up and freezing the phone. Have you experienced this?

    Dan, does taking pictures in the smart cam app change the quality of the image as opposed to the pro app? Like if you did a burst to get best shot what resolution / quality are the images? If they're 5mp are they down sampled?


    I haven't seen a single review address this! Thank you!
    Yes, by nature Smart Cam takes lower resolution photos, which is why it's faster. They are roughly 3072x1728 and 1.3MB in size, about a 1/3 smaller than the 5MP oversampled ones.

    What is the build quality like? Does the body creak at all? In a dark room, is there any light leakage around the capacitive buttons?

    Is the aluminium cold to the touch like the Surface is (I mean after leaving the phone for a while and returning) or does the black covering on it take this effect away? I just think that cold metal is a really reassuring feature on a device.
    not, no really...maybe if it's cool outside

    Excellent. Seems slightly better than 920, no complaints. No light leakage AFAIK.

    Engadget noticed some weirdness when recording video using the Camera Pro lens where it only sounded like it was coming from one audio channel. They also had an issue with the mic not working while using it as a speakerphone. Have you seen either of these issues?
    Haven't tried yet, will do later today.

    Money aside...Would you recommend this to current 920 owners?

    I saw that and seemed like it happened once for Engadget. I noticed the first time I launched Pro Cam and hit Settings, the screen went black and I had to reboot. Since then, it's been peachy.

    I'm sure v1 of Pro Cam has some bugs, but it's a downloadable app via the Store, meaning Nokia can (and will) fix and improve it--it's not a ROM/firmware thing, so I'm not too concerned.

    How is the speaker quality and volume, on speakerphone, compared to the 920?

    1. Do you have glance turned on and do you notice any drain or think it's noticeable if someone was to have it on all the time throughout the day?
    2. Do you think the Matte will scuff in the corners like it did on the 900 & 920's?
    3. How much space does the 5MP +38MP take up on the phone for each picture?
    Love Glance. I use the Peek option though, so when I pull out of my pocket, boom, the Time. Can't say it uses a lot of battery.
    No idea about the Matte/scuffs. It does have anti-fingerprint/dirt on it and if you had a scuff, would be tough to see.
    See above: 3MP + 9-15MB

    Pretty sure it will, I mean, the guts are the same as the 920 but in a thinner shell. All smartphones these days get warm with heavy processing.

    In your opinion from your quick experience with the device so far, what's the best and quickest way to transfer photos?

    I hate that the 1020 has no mSD slot, 80% in part because of the limited memory, 20% due to not able to copy the photos around with an mSD...

    Keep in mind that I may want to transfer photos to computers that are not mine... and that 200-300 photos may take a lot of space (even the 5MP oversampled ones)... and that some wifi routers are quite slow...

    Thanks!

    No Oggl.
    Shame this app wasn't ready in time for launch, had it been included I'm sure The Verge review would have been much better with a built in way to post to Instagram.

    It's good, akin to the Lumia 925. It's not outstanding but it gets the job done.

    Does the glance functionality also show icons for missed messages emails and calls? Or just the time.

    Have you heard anything about getting RAW image data out of this thing? Perhaps through the upcoming Nokia SDK?

    Chipset does support it because Nokia and Qualcomm worked together to re-write the imaging stack.

    Dan can you tap+ send pictures? Mary Jo Foley said it's been removed as an option on the device.

    I seem to remember that the grip was to have a SD slot. What happened to that? Would have been great!

    1. On the 920 if you zoomed in before you took a picture more than likely the picture came out fuzzy or not as clear. Is it the same for the 1020 or is that part of the zoom REINVENTED? In other words is it better to take a regular shot and then zoom to crop later or is the quality of the shot zoomed in better than on the 920?
