    I think this rumors is fake... or not point to Lumia 1020 successor.

    Yeh but that is an LED flash and LEDs aren't big, so that lens is way too small to be from a large sensor, it's probably the 1/2.4 Toshiba sensor the HTC One M9 uses but with OIS and for the Lumia 940.

    Judging from the circular ring and how big the phone would have to be to make it look that small.. I doubt it, they'll be normal sized that you find in any phone, they've just got three of them to improve tone.

    It's a 940 if it is true, not a 1030.

    You can't judge size from any part of that blurry pic - there's literally nothing to give any indication/comparison/measure against. It could be 4 metres wide. Or 4 millimetres.

    Maybe its going to be like that giant Surface or something they built a while back.

    Very clear statement ...

    I think the new Lumia flagship (940 or 940 XL or whatever) will take great pictures at least as good as the 1020 if not better ones

    Well, it would need OIS and decent optics then. Neither of which i've seen rumored for the new devices.

    I thought I saw OIS listed for the 940 devices. The cameras seem similar to the 1520.

    You might be right. But the point is that there's no real "king of imaging" successor coming. So anyone interested in such a device has, like me, moved on to other platforms. They've abandoned the only differentiator they had.

    Yeah I think so. So sad because as awesome as the 1020 is, the speed of it's camera app is so slow compared to other phones that take faster pics that are decent in comparison.

    Big smile as my lumia 1020 just come home from service center (Nokiacare) today. Nearly a month stranded there as spare parts are not easy to find. My wife told me just to let it go peacefully and buy a new one.. Spend nearly a hundred dollars. Looking back 2 years ago when I first bought this phone, it is a good smart phone and awesome camera. So many memories....

    I still wonder why people at Microsoft didn't bought the idea of wonderful camera functions and concept introduced by Nokia. If you don't like it, don't buy it. It is feel like marrying a wrong woman. Sad...

    Hrrm unfortunately there doesn't seem to be one in the future. My lumia 1020 still works beautifully though even with the latest windows 10 os update but as time goes on so does technology and eventually even a small sensor will surpass it in image quality.

    How does the 950 compare? People seem to be gloating about the camera, some saying its better than the 1020?

    I would say the Pansonic CM1 is the spiritual successor, it probably edges out the 1020 in image quality thanks to it's lens and newer backlit sensor.

    After the Panasonic I would say the 23mp Sony Xperia Z5 would be next in line. Sony has been stuffing the same sensor that they use in their cybershot cameras in the xperia z series since about the z3 was released and the results have been pretty impressive despite the sensor being a bit smaller than the 1020's(but still bigger than the usual cellphone sensor as it's a full fledged digital camera unit) I'm willing to bet this phone would actually give the 1020 a good run.


    Not sure I would recommend the LG G4 for image quality, I really don't feel it offers anything special imo. Focusing seems to be it's strongpoint but otherwise it's image quality is the same as the galaxy, Motorola etc. .It really isn't in the upper echelon of camera phones imo.

    I'm vey apprehensive when it comes to android though. It has never felt polished and over time the user experience degrades, they're known for getting laggy and slowing down to a crawl with age. The only real solution is to do a clean factory reset and be very leery of which apps you download, have a memory cleaner app handy etc. . .I'd say IOS carries the polish and tight integration that you'll be familiar with and you'll be able to use it for years without any issues and they won't have any issues with certain apps acting weird because ios isn't fragmented like android. YMMV and if you're the type to get a new top-end phone every year then it may not matter.

    It is complicated. In certain situations, the 950 [XL] camera is better. In terms of launch time, it takes about a second from pocket to ready to shoot. Time between shots is lightning fast. Low light photography is really amazing with the 950. In terms of storage, the microSD slot on the 950 is great. If you have time to compose a shot in decent light, or you have a camera grip and a tripod and you are taking a shot with a long exposure, the 1020 wins hands down.

    There's still a huge, huge gap between a professional camera and the 1020 or 950. A professional camera gives you multiple f-stops, the ability to shoot at high ISO, which allows you to shoot in low light with a reasonably fast shutter, and the ability to elegantly attach all sorts of lenses and filters. Anyone who is a a wedding/portrait photographer or sports/journalism photog is going to use professional equipment. People who want a mainstream smartphone with an OK point-and-shoot quality camera have several options.

    What I want from a smartphone camera is a great smartphone first and foremost, and a camera that is super easy to use, and does the thinking for me, and is ALWAYS with me, so I don't have to think about getting ready to go take pictures. I feel as though the 950XL pushes forward on all of those fronts.
