    Yep, it has the slowest camera from today's smartphones with DSLR quality. Oh, wait a minute... there is no smartphone except Lumia 1020 with such camera quality! :) So, there is no cameraphone to compare with. ;)
    You seem to agree that the Lumia 1020 does lag.

    I've got a DSLR and a Lumia 1020. Your point?
    The Lumia 1020 lags after taking the picture. Don't make up rubbish and say the camera doesn't lag. I've got the Lumia 930, 1520, 920, 625 and 1020. Heck, even a 2yr old 920 is faster than the 1020.
    Sure, Lumia 1020 needs some time (~3 sec) to save the photo. But this phone doesn't lag in terms of software\OS (like Samsung flagship phones). And if someone tells that Lumia 1020 is lagging on Windows 8.1 it means 1020 works slowly with lags. And that's not true. Lumia 1020 works flawlessly. But yes, it takes few seconds to save photo (due to large 41 mpx sensor).

    And I will not agree that the quality of the image can't be compared to DSLR cameras (of course, I don't take to account top Canon DSLR with prime lens like Canon 85 mm f/1.2). But the quality 1020's photos can NOT be compared to other's smartphone cameras. That's for sure!

    Sure, if Lumia 1020 had 5Mpx sensor with small physical size, it would take a few milliseconds to take and save photo.

    I think people are missing the price a bit here. Let's say you are paying full price for 930 and half of that for 1020 . Then it's a question of finding a cheap 1020 somewhere and with that in mind buying later the 1030 if it ever comes out in 6 months maybe? or something. But if it was for a future phone I would always go for 930 in my opinion as I have the denim now I can say that the camera is a monster beast :) and yes specally in low light!!
    I myself in quite same situation as OP , I have lumia 1020 but there are times it lags ,and I miss some great shots , I have been checking up a lot on the lumia 930 and I also see it's taking full advantage of the Denim Camera features, nothing beats taking fast camera shots,i'd do anything for that on my 1020 but facts are facts ,and the 1020 is limited due to it's hardware in contrast to the 930,i am also wondering whether to hold out for the lumia 1020 successor, or just sell my 1020 and get the 930. I use my 1020 for everything, email,browsing,games,taking pics,setting appointments , you name it, it's faster than many other android phones but I know it can be better if I processor like the 930. and you get wireless charging also.

    I had a 1020 which went broke.. Got refunded and got a 930
    I like basically everything about it especially after denim, but when it comes to still quality its decent but noticably worse.

    Would probably still go for the 930 if put in the same position, but mostly because i got a dslr too..
    It all comes down to how much you value the camera over speed and uptodate-ness. Screen is much nicer too.
