    I'm looking 4 replacement for my current phone. Since it first released L1020 already shows it's charm to me

    Still it seems that the device will reach end of life anytime soon. I can't tell whether I still get firmware for 8.1 GDR1.

    So should I grab it? Unlike some fellows in US there is no contract system on my place so like or not I must pay at full price

    My girl loves the living crud out of it. It is a great phone, and one of the true successes of WP. It is still a good buy. I would be patient on how much I would spend on it now, certainly not a top end price. But you will not be disappointed.

    I doubt think there will be one, I think it's a unique device. Hopefully I'm wrong though, my girlfriend has one, it sure is a beauty!

    Yes the phone is fantastic, windows phone 8.1.1 with this 41mp camera is worth it. As someone else has said I wouldn't pay top dollar but its a great device none the less.

    Until there's no 1020 successor, still, nothing else comes close to this phone. Buy it.

    I have a 1520, but would still recommend the 1020 (even tho I never had one),if the specs are ok with you then does it matter if it gets updates or not? 10 years ago we never had any of this update nonsense for a phone. You bought a phone because you liked it. Never understood why the 1020 has a great camera but 720p screen tho. Would have made sense for the 1020 to have 1080p screen to show the resolution. But still....if your happy with the specs and the price is right...you got yourself a great phone that will last years

    If the camera is important to you then you should buy it. I don't think there's anything else like it on the horizon.

    The camera is pretty much the only reason I bought it. Honestly, I'm not a fan of the Windows OS but it was a compromise I was willing to make for not having to carry a point and shoot with me on vacation. It's my main personal phone, I also carry around a S4 or 5S for work phone so the OS shortfalls don't bother me as much.

    I find its just too slow, its great to have in your pocket, you see something and want to grab the action, by the time its powered on, app started and focussed its usually too late, that is of course for moving action rather than group pictures or scenery. I used to have a canon s90 in my pocket which kicks the crap out of the 1020. If your serious about photography then get the pocket size Sony RX100 Mk3 its pricey at 700 though. I reckon I will get that and get a better phone like the HTC One M8 or wait for the 1525 if it exists. Damn im going to need larger trousers! hehe

    Go for 1020. You wont regret. It's the best camera phone. In fact, i have been in situations when my l1020 has humbled canon dslr, Sony and Nikon, like clicking the Arc De Triomphe in Paris. I get better pictures with 1020 than my dedicated cameras. It's a phenomenal phone. The best. Convenient size, fluidic OS and greatest camera.
    And know what, 41mgpixels will remain 41mgpixels, update or not..... Nothing comes close and nothing will come close in the foreseeable future. I am on wp8.1.1 and it will get many more updates in the future. Don't worry. Buy it, if you like it.

    Amazing camera. Although unless you plan to use the camera to its limits I would recommend keeping an eye on the new 830... Should be a better smartphone experience at the expense of the camera.

    I for one can't be happier with my 1020, love it.

    You cannot beat the zoom feature of the 1020 nor the night/low light ability of the camera. The two pictures are from one shot with a zoom on the frog as an example. I could never get that close to the frog with any other phone.

    I'm already stick with Nokia brand as long as I remember. My first Windows phone is Lumia 800 which amazed me with it's camera. Now I'm using Lumia 625. And I think I'm ready for higher end device.

    At first I really love to get ICON but it only available in US. So I think 1020 is the best choice for me.

    I already familiar with function since I use wp from 7.5 and I love to see this device.

    The thing is my main reason for 1020 is RAM and storage. And I'm not quiet confortable with Oversized phone.

    the 1520 does better in low light.

    the 930 has the same hardware as Icon...

    anyway, as of today, the 1020 is still the best camera-phone in the world, albeit being a slow-snapper
    if you can't wait for the 1030, which might or might not be released in near future, then go get it now

    An aperture of f/2.2 does better than f/2.4. Small difference but it makes 1020 better in low light.

    The Lumia 1020 goes EOL (End Of Life) next month. I love mine but honestly if I were making a decision right now I'd wait a little longer to see what's new. The 830 is on the horizon and I'm willing to bet that a couple of more handsets will come along with it about the same time since they almost never announce just one phone at a time. And who knows, one of them may just be the successor to the 1020 we've been waiting for? Never know.

    Someone's people do expect too much, right?
    U already have a dslr fit into ur pocket (in fact, back pocket), still u expect out to be slimmer. May be a camera lens will do it for u rather than a phone.

    Don't mind, I m not making fun of you, just thought, must be happy to get that awesome camera phone, rather than expecting more out of it.

    I somewhat feel alike about phones. I am also not comfortable with oversized phones. I started with 800, now having 720 and waiting to upgrade a prime phone soon. I am actually waiting for launch of 730 n 830 in next month as 830 going to be with pure view camera, though may not have 41 mp, it may come to with excellent camera. And msft is rumoured to be announcing then on 4th Sept and launching them globally immediately.
