    Economy, US and UK are in a mess internally, debt is eating up everything. India is not that bad at the moment, so squeeze out as much as you can ;)

    and here I was thinking naively that they will offer the camera grip free as they are launching the device so late. hahaha

    if the camera grip is priced so high, then the 1020 might be priced close to 50k...

    Since last year I have noticed a that Nokia has a fixed time interval between initial Launch of any flagship Lumia till the date that flagship goes sell in India. After the launch of Lumia 920 it took 3 Months for Nokia to start selling Lumia 920 in India. Same happened with Lumia 925, After the event in New York it took 3.1 month for Lumia 925 to go on sell in India and now the same thing is happening with Lumia 1020. It was announced on July 11 in New York and now it will start selling in India on October 11, Notice that this is exact 3 months gap between Main announcement and the day it goes on sale in India so now I think we can predict that when the next Lumia flagship (Lumia 1520) will launch in India after its Main event.

    Nokia is pretty stupid if they think that after delaying for 3 months they will be able to get away with a price tag of 45+ K.. It's not going to happen.. If they do price it that high.. I'd much rather wait for the price to come down or switch to HTC One.. It's just that the after sale services of HTC are crap! Else, I'd have bought it by now :\

    Guys, I'm seriously considering buying the Xperia Z1 over the Lumia 1020 now. If the late release was not enough I think the price is going to be too high to justify the purchase. If it's for ~40K it's still worth it. I was holding out for the Lumia 1020 because of the camera but I guess even Xperia Z1 has a decent camera.. And it blows the Lumia 1020 on the spec sheet.. More importantly, it's battery life should be better than Lumia 1020.. It's just that I like Windows Phone OS a lot even though android has way way more apps.. still thinking which to buy :\

    How does Z1 blow 1020 on the spec sheet ?
    the only thing it stands up is that it has full HD screen, and quad core. DROID's need that power so that it should'nt lag.
    Z1 has a bad battery life,also the service Sony Provides in India is Pathetic compared to Nokia.
    as far as 1020, it blows out any smartphone in camera dept..

    purchasing 1020 on 1st Sept irrespective what the price is.

    And even the screen on the Z1 isn't as good as the 1020 except the resolution. But at 4.5 inch 720p is good enough too.

    We all have waited very long including you to get our Lumia 1020 and now its just a matter of few more days, Please don't loose your patience. I know its very painful to wait and all of us are part of it and don't ley yourself get attracted to any other smartphone because the day Lumia 1020 will release, I am sure you will be very sad looking at your Z1 and finding us tanking about and sharing those amazing photos from our New Lumia 1020 so please bare with us till October 11 if you really don't want to be sad in future. And about Specks, Android devices requires lot more processing power to run compare to Windows Phone (Still I have seen Quadcore Android devices Lag a lot) and about screen 1280x768 resolution is enough at a screen size of 4.5 inches and it all matter how the phone perform in real life. If phone have quadcore processor and still lags then its useless but if phone have slight less processing power but performs very will without any lag then that's definitely a good choice.

    Actually the OS is at fault, besides the android marketplace is not monitored. If they can polish the OS for real, keep a minimum hardware requirement, that'd be great.
    Anyone is free to load any worm filled app in the android store, nobody checks it, 1 such app makes it to your phone and BAM!
    That's why you have so many antivirus apps for android ;)

    How the z1 blow the Lumia 1020 on the spec sheet is this

    1.) The display is full HD as you said whereas it's 720 p on the lumia 1020.
    2.) The processor is a 2.2 Ghz Snapdragon 800!!.. And the Lumia 1020 is a dual core.. It's just raw power in which Z1 creams Lumia 1020!..
    3.) Battery life well it Z1 has a 3,000 Mah battery..
    I'm still just considering not hell bent on buying the Z1.. and personally speaking the Z1 looks better as well.. I would be definitely waiting till 11th October to see the price of the lumia 1020 but currently the Z1 is going for 37.5 K as the cheapest..

    I cannot stress on the same thing again, Z1 runs android which has hunger for power. No matter how many cores you put in, it'll start losing in some time with lags.
    3.) Battery life well it Z1 has a 3,000 Mah battery..

    Have you ever used the HTC ONE? I don't see a hint of lag, etc on that device and I had the Lumia 920 so I understand that Windows phone doesn't require that much power :)

    1 thing i know owning a RED Lumia 920 is that, people tend to ask you, which phone is this, IT DRAWS ATTENTION.
    you say Z1 looks good, it mite be your opinion on it.
    But to me Z1 looks like other sony phones just has a camera shutter button.

    Lumia 1020 is S*x to me, the secured you feel when holding in hand a NOKIA device and Apple Device you wont feel the same with other phones.
    the matte finish just adds things up more.
    Also I can type holding the phone in 1 hand on a 1020

    1. The Z1's display is actually inferior in terms of quality to the 1020. There are rumors that Sony is using some leftover display units from the Z,which had a horrible screen. Even the best ones are actually not that good, with very poor viewing angles etc.

    2. As you say, with those specs, the Z1 should not lag. The 1020 doesn't lag either. So how is that an advantage for the Z1? Well, except in the spec sheet.

    Sony loses in terms of actual battery life.

    Well, I had a Black Lumia 920 and people still asked me about it.. It was a brilliant phone.. I have no doubts about Nokia's build quality but I had to exchange 3 Lumia 920's still didn't get a fully working unit but that might be just a specific problem.. But, if you are saying that apart from Nokia and Apple there are no other well-built phones then my friend try out the HTC ONE in your hand.. it's probably the best built phone in a long time.. HTC's after sale service and the frankly pathetic camera is the reason why I didn't go for it :).. I just hope Nokia doesn't price most of us out on the 1020 :(.. I shall wait till 11th October though and then let's see.. :)
