    FWIW it's very durable and so is the new crop such as the 630.

    I hope the polycarbonate unibody continues with some of the later lumias... such a great design!

    An aperture of f/2.2 does better than f/2.4. Small difference but it makes 1020 better in low light.
    And don't forget that the 1020's sensor is about three times the size too :D

    We are 100% impressed with our 1020 we bought earlier this month new off eBay. Both white and the camera is worth the price of admission alone.

    Just do not buy a ATT branded one unless you plan to stay with ATT.

    Nokia Lumia 1020 is still worth to buy. You can easily buy this handset without any trouble. 41 Megapixels camera helps to capture stunning picture with good control to mobile users. It involve High resolution display, a full day of use battery. Critics said, the Lumia 1020 is best windows handset. Mobile users used so far and offers the best camera in the industry.

    I've heard that the 1020 is slow at taking pictures... And now there're rumors about the successor of the 1020 because some Microsoft declarations. My girlfriend wants this phone because she likes taking pictures (she has a 820 but the screen broke, so now she's stuck with a lagdroid in the time being), but it's near the end of its life cycle, so we have the same dilemma... To buy or not to buy, that is the question.

    I just got mine one or two months ago and, since we've got no announced succesor, I think it's still a good buy if you really like the camera. Battery life and non-expandable memory is the only thing that drives me mad.

    Hi guys

    I found a really good offer for new off-contract 1020 at local store (circa 200€). I need your opinions. :)

    My situation is as this: I own a 920 since August 2013, really like it (now with WP8.1 via DP). The only issues with my 920 are: 1) sometimes I wish the "Resuming..." would go a bit faster (minor issue); 2) the battery sometimes could be better but generally happy (minor issue); 3) if the heat that it produces was just a bit less...! (minor issue); 4) it weights too much! (major issue).

    So, you see, 3 minor and 1 major issue - weight.

    Given that I want to keep WP - do you think that 1020 is a good buy for me?
    It weights less (158 g VS 185 g), but could one feel that difference?
    I know that the 2 Gb of RAM of the 1020 are there also to deal with the Camera software, but I guess those 2 Gb of RAM will be beneficial to the overall user experience beside the Camera, will they not?
    On GSMarena I also saw that some battery tests are in favor to 1020 (44 h VS 61 h of endurance rating), despite their batteries have same mAh but different models.

    I have been thinking a lot about changing my 920 recently, due to its weight (not the size, size is ok, weight is the problem). I am considering the 830, but not sure because the price seems a bit too high for its processor... but I would not want the 735 or 635 because they do not suit me (selfie features useless, screen too bad, respectively). Those 200€ are perfect to me, nevertheless I do not want to waste them. :D

    Tell me what you think! :)

    thanks :)

    It is a good Phone but if you want a Phone for point and shoot then I would look another option.

    i'm still pretty happy with my 1020 after a year. When I got it I bought it for the smoothness of windows phone OS and the awesome camera. Until this day it still serves my original purpose well.

    But since its an old phone and the new updates and features - yes im talking about Denim - are already seemingly irrelevant to 1020, I would suggest getting it ONLY if the price of it has already dropped by quite a margin since local introduction, or else, get another model that has OLED screens (I love that display colour on Lumia 930)
