    Just recently picked up a used lumia 1020. Considering updating to Windows 10 mobile through insider program, but before I do, what are the pros and cons? Is the camera quality affected? Also, is it possible to easily revert back to Windows Phone 8.1?

    keep in mind that the ancient Snapdragon S4 will hold your phone back
    if I were you I'd update it on Release Preview ring

    reverting to 8.1 is quite easy using Windows Phone Recovery Tool

    pros: you get to experience windows 10 mobile with all the new features and capabilities, get new updates regularly, new apps etc
    Cons, battery life might be shorter by 5-10% but it would depend

    To revert to 8.1 is as easy as to install and use Microsoft Windows Phone Recovery Tool on a PC.

    On the 1520, yes the picture quality could be bad. But for 1020 users, we get the option to use lumia camera so that's a bonus for us. However, for the 1520,the advantage is that camera updates will be coming out frequently so the quality can go up
