    I'm with my 1020. The camera outstanding. The phone classy. Mail, swipe keyboard, WhatsApp, Here apps, Opera Mini, all working !
    I'm am with W10. My tips are previous O.S. 8.1 has to be very stable with not too many functions enabled, and when W10 is installed, don't do hard reset !

    Still using my 1020 for 2 years now. When can we expect WP10 update? Or is it not going to happen? 😐

    You have to be "insider" that is to say download the app from the shop, and enrol with your Microsoft account.
    Microsoft paths aren't straight at all.
    After that, please follow the advice on my previous post. Also, install only "preview".

    It is not being officially released to the 1020. The only way you will ever get Windows 10 on the device is to use the insider program. There will also be no further support for the device after version .218

    Im using m9 and 1020. Android is easier to access anything sorry to WP. But i still love WP and 1020. But..battery life for lumia 1020 (or is it WP) is terrible. I use to have Oppo R7 Plus with 4000mah and really hard to kill the battery on regular usage(nearly 2 days) but lumia is just half the capacity so id expect around atleast 10 hours but no...i plug off around 6am..i need to recharge around 11-12pm. My m9 can go 6am to 4 to 5pm. Something wrong here.

    Nope.
    Last "insider" version is .242
    Nothing is static with Microsoft.

    1020 user here, from Argentina.
    Bought one 2 years ago, got stolen. Then I bought the 735 one year ago, which was an affordable and still powerful device. Dropped it to the floor and smashed the glass.
    I took the opportunity to go back to the beggining of this love story, and bought another 1020. It wasn't cheap because it's hard to find a new device in this country, since the restrictions to import mobile phones.
    I regret NOTHING. This is the best smartphone i've ever touched. It's not just about the camera, it's about all the things that make it special, even the curved glass. You get for examen Glance screen, which is absent from almost all Android devices, and then they added it to the S7 and the G5, and now it seems like a new world. B*tch please, my 1020 had it for a long time, and amazes people with that "peek" option when you take it out of your pocket.
    In Argentina, the 90% of the market share is for Android devices, most of them Samsung. Even iPhone users double WP users. That makes me feel more special, because every time I put my Lumia 1020 on the table, i get that "What's that phone?" :)

    Edit: Forgot to mention, I'm on build 10586.242, stable and no bugs at all.

    Please don't spread FUD. Yes, the 1020 is not getting the "official" W10M but it will get all updates, respectively cumulative updates/sub builds for 10586.xxx
    10586.312 is already getting tested and will make it's way to the 1020 and all other phones with 10586.xxx on them real soon. The 1020 will get all updates to 10586 till Redstone drops (probably in July)

    Get off your high horse... Windows 10 is NOT being officially released for the 1020.

    Who cares what updates it may get on the insider program.... there is no and will be no official support for it....

    I'm not on a "high horse" - I just corrected your false information. I repeat: Lumia 1020 is not offically supported but will get all cumulative updates till Redstone gets it's offical release

    I still use my 1020 as my only phone. I love love this phone. This may be off topic, but I received this email from AOL.
    "We want to inform you that these changes do not impact in any way smart devices (smart phones, tablets, etc) running on Android, iOS or Windows mobile operating systems. This means you can continue to access your AOL Mail using a browser without any issues after April 27th."
    I have the Windows mobile operating system and still can't get mail to work. Anyone else have this problem or anyone have a solution to this problem.

    So the insider preview of W10 works smoothly on the 1020? How's the battery life, and why shouldn't I do a hard reset after installing W10?

    W10 works almost smoothly. But as the goes by it improves slowly. In fact not even the official version is finished.
    Anyway, is thrilling to see the phone working differently.
    And for the reason not doing hard reset, it's because the specific firmware layer is missing. If an app works on 8.1 it will work on 10 without hard reset. You can't grant the opposite. Besides, some apps like Here, will be uninstalled.

    Thanks, patrikmore! How the battery been for you? I'm debating updating my 1020 to W10, since I have to do a factory reset on it as it went bonkers and none of the MS apps work now.

    I suggest installing before windows 8.1 denim thru Microsoft recovery tool. Wait a week. Then install W10 thru "insider".
    Battery on W10 is the same. Not good! If you don't use the phone it could last for two days. Depending on use, battery could be working till the middle of the afternoon or the end of day.

    Some vendors product code aren't common at all. Tools exist to replace firmware with more common product code. After that Microsoft Recovery Tool will work.
    By the way, if the product code not fit the phone, (it's for another model), it's normal to have bad performance.

    I've been using w10 on my 1020 as a daily driver. Battery issues were bad at first but have improved with each subsequent update. I can't even remember the battery performance on 8.1. I figure I get about 4 hrs of continuous use.

    318 is a major improvement in speed on the 1020. I did a side by side comparison with my wifes 1020 on 8.1, there is no difference in speed in the OS now, scrolling is butter, all apps except for our banking app opened the same speed etc. Our banking app from RBC took longer on the w10m equipped 1020. I am very happy with the new update.

    I'm on .242 on my 1020, and it's working very smoothly. Those who have .318, is that Fast Ring? I decided to go cautious and use Release Preview only as, it's my "daily driver". Does .318 fix the issue with recording video in mono only on the 1020? See the recent allaboutwindowsphone article on the reasons not to upgrade the 1020 to Windows 10. They include the glance screen not moving around the screen, creating potential burn-in issues (on builds prior to .242 I didn't have this issue; on .242, I notice that it does quite often get stuck in the bottom position, but sometimes it does what it's supposed to do, so buggy). Mr Litchfield also did some timings on .242 as against 8.1 Update 1, and reckons it takes nearly 60% longer to open most apps and other functions on the phone. Having said all that, I can't see myself easily going back to 8.1. The new Outlook is the killer app for me. Can't live without it. Ability to open virtually all Office documents, even password protected, is also indispensable. I'd only go back to 8.1 on this phone if I got a new daily driver and decided to keep this as a dedicated camera and (maybe) navigation device.
