    I just bought a 1020 for exactly this purpose - as a camera to keep in my pocket while traveling, that's also a phone. It seems like a good choice. In fact it seems like it was designed for that purpose.

    I talked to someone that works for Nokia USA .. there will be a 1020 successor for sure by the end of the year, which is what we all knew already, but it was nice to get a conformation from someone that works there.

    Also, they are moving the Sunnyvale HQ to the Microsoft building in Mountain View .. they will be talking two floors in one of buildings

    interesting on the successor comment...i wonder if the quality will be as good? or will it be another 41mp...

    for example, although the 1020 was a successor to the 808 but i believe the image quality on the 808 is a bit better than the 1020..

    To buy or not to buy, that is the question.

    If you are within the first 5-6 months in the life of a flagship smartphone then the answer is yes. If you are 9-10 months into the life of a flagship, consider the current alternatives. If you upgrade annually, it would be best to wait out the successor and go from there. Otherwise you end up with a year old-phone that isn't as shiny and new. If shiny and new doesn't matter to you, go for it. The 1020's camera is best in class and gives you a ton of features. It isn't the fastest or easiest to use, but it will more than hold its own compared to iOS and Android devices.

    this ....... with the 1020 they used the same principal as the 808 , large sensor , oversampled images to eliminate noise etc etc ...... I am hoping they continue with this method but improve it ...... bigger sensor , better optics , great oversampling , better ois , improved rich recording , nd filter , xenon flash etc etc I want to see the 1020/808 continued and improved to give us even more pure images then the 808 and 1020

    if they do this then great , I get worried though they will chase slimness and form factor over useage and quality and always settle for a middle ground now so they don't get slated for a huge camera hump or a thick device ...... both of which I don't mind if they produce great results ......... so maybe the next phone will try a new sensor or a new way of getting more pure images , maybe nokia/Microsoft will try saying that led is as good as xenon like they did going from the n82 to the n96 back in the day ...... who knows what the next 1020 type device will be like? pelican sensor tech? 1020 type sensor but bigger? xenon flash or no xenon flash? like I say I hope its a 808/1020 type device but even better

    at the minute while deciding whever to get a 1020 , you could find a cheap one , buy it and use it to capture great photos and if a better one comes out then boom sell up and use the money towards the new model if it takes your fancy ;-)

    I am sure that it will be an improved version of the same tech, unless they are ready with the next generation.. whatever that might be.

    A bigger sensor is essential.. at least as big as the 808s

    I had the 1520 and returned it due to its size for the 1020. Do not regret my decision. Only thing I miss is the 3 row tiles which we will have with 8.1 No differences in speed that is noticeable at all.

    I just recently got myself a brand new 1020, and I'm coming from 920, just for the sake of the camera. So far no regret and glad that I made the move. Now just hoping the successors won't get out the market too soon, I worried that I can hold my wallet tight...

    920 successor will come before a 1020 one... so it will be at least another 5-6 months before we get some real info on the 1030 or whatever they end up calling it.

    I think that we might see the 930 at BUILD.. or at least I am hoping :)
