    They do not use glue to hold it in place, there is a locking mechanism inside the phone to hold the screen, maybe your glass is separating from the digitizer.
    Oh I did not know that. Yeah then the locking mechanism is broken. Yes only the screen is coming off, the digitizer is not.

    I can't afford to upgrade at the moment. Also any other camera (phone) seems like a downgrade, although I have felt the photo quality of my phone is slipping lately and its slowness in capturing images is frustrating. But financially I have to stick with it.
    Not sure about W10, I am happy with 8 and not convinced of the benefits of 10, plus I worry about it causing problems with my phone.
    Totally agree. If I don't have raw files in w10, I don't need upgrade.

    Regards.

    Lumia 1020 is nothing exceptional, except the camera. I love the camera. Yes, it is slow to focus, slow to store, but I still prefer one really good photo instead of many crappy ones. And god, the photos are good, better than any other camera phone, better than most quality compact cameras. All 41 megapixels makes photos so sharp and in low light the bright lens and huge physical sensor size captures lots of light resulting impressive night photos. Lumia Camera is a great app, manual controls are placed really clever and are easy to operate, better than in "real" cameras, where there are too much buttons and menus simply to adjust color balance, ISO or EV.

    I had no plans to move away from 1020, but now when it is not anymore in production and there is no successor coming I had an idea to maybe save my 1020 for photography purposes only and maybe get something cheaper phone to carry with me as a daily driver. Accidents do happen, although I try to be really careful with my 1020, much more careful than with my previous phones. I would hate to loose this phone, well, there are always used phones for sale, but nobody knows how they were treated, maybe the warranty is out, etc.

    You should check out the lumia950, its camera is also phenomenal. Look here for sample jpg+raw from vietnam today https://tinhte.vn/threads/microsoft-...nhanh.2532919/.

    P/s: Win 10 on my lumia 1020 is slower than win8.1 and battery is the nightmare. For the same use, data always on, it could only last half day. Maybe something with the integration skype into messaging causes the problem.

    W10 on 1020 is running alright, viewing\sending photos took the biggest hit for me.. Taking a picture then trying to view it right after in my photos collection takes forever for it to show up there plus attaching a picture to text is hit and miss. Also today for the last few hours randomly the color of the text on my lock screen turns red. Never had that happen before.

    I will be using my 1020 for at least half of next year, no current plans to upgrade or change. Stepping down from 41MP to 20MP is going to be a challenge!

    It's still a solid and reliable device. I enjoy using it, it's unique even 2/3 years after being announced, it's bold (I have the yellow), it's camera is astounding, and it has personal significance - I won this device, through Nokia, in an online competition and so it's kinda a trophy. I have no reason to change, and while the 950 series does look appealing (and likely to be my next device, unless I hold on 'til a 960) I do very much like my little yellow friend with the insanely huge camera.

    ...I just called it a friend - I think I'll stop typing here.


    UPDATE: Somewhat contrary to my previous intentions, I'm now using a 950XL. My 'trophy' 1020 is living in a box with the intention of it being the handset of choice when it comes to photography - though I have to admit, the 950XL's camera is more practical in terms of speed and features. Still an amazing phone, perhaps my all-time favourite (although my 950XL is phenomenal too)

    I tried to go to 20MP.... around October. Then at Halloween I missed the 1020.... I returned the 20MP phone. Just wasn't ready yet.

    I share some of your sentiment, also was going to win my phone in a regional competition but Nokia Europe refused to send me my prize (lumia 1020) and instead sent me 820 which I sold without a thought and got the 1020

    My 1020 is still going strong since launch. Yeah the camera is slow, but I am willing to compromise convenience for quality.

    Although my contract is up, I wont be upgrading yet. I admit that I do browse the web in hope of a new leak that points to a new lumia camera flagship / 1020 successor. *sigh*

    I enjoy using my 1020 around the house, the camera is way to slow to take photos of my kids, I use my Nexus or iPhone 6 for that..
    The Microsoft Camera app in the Windows Phone 10 builds is much faster, but it doesnt have the RAW option. It'll still take high res photos though, and is faster.

    Im using oppo r7 plus now, nothing amazing except battery life. haha
    But i always thinking on getting back to L1020. On store just now i found a 64Gb version that i dont know ever exist. I also found battery replacement for this device at the store. Wonder why the replacementt cannot come in bigger capacity e.g 2800 -3000. Otherwise surely switch back.

    I would love to go back to my 1020 as a daily, I just can't take the small screen size. After the 1020, I had a 1520 and now a Note 4. That 4.5" screen is beyond tiny.

    I really need to get that thing back on 8.1.1 and play with it. W10 has kind of turned me off...

    Oh wow, I'm probably among the very few that finds it big, but I'm using it mostly single-hand, so there's that.

    hoyoyo80 - You have to get physically bigger battery and there's no room, so we are stuck with the 2000mAh batteries. Not really the same, but I got the wireless charging case as well as Qi Power Bank 10000mAh. It's 1.5cm taller than the phone, other dimensions are the more or less the same (as the 1020), has 2 USB ports for wired charging. I have at least 2 full charges worth we me, so no worries.

    Staying on my 1020 for the 3rd year. Does what I want the way I want. Maybe updating to W10 if it becomes available and is not buggy.

    They do not use glue to hold it in place, there is a locking mechanism inside the phone to hold the screen, maybe your glass is separating from the digitizer.
    If they didn't use a UV set adhesive, the screen can separate from the digitizer, you would think repair guys would know this, rather than doing things on the cheap

    I misunderstood, I thought they meant the entire thing was glued in like lots of other phones. No, the glass is glued to the digitizer yes.
