    So that means 1520 is a complete package and 1020 only wins in camera

    I have both and I use the 1520 most of the time (when I'm in the mood to use WP8, lol), but when I go to an event, club or special occasion, the 1020 is my companion, the 1520 camera is nice and you can take really great pictures given the right lighting, exposure, etc. but to just point and shoot without wiggle with settings the 1020 is far superior especially in low light and using the the xenon flash.

    So my recommendation is to just get both, you can get a 1020 in decent condition out of craigslist for around $200.00.

    No budget only one. I was thinking I will Buy Nokia Lumia 1520 and Exchange My 920 with Nokia N9 just to try that Meego OS

    Any camera will struggle taking a photo if you point it directly at a light source like the sun. The iPhone actually takes great photos in good light. Apple uses good lenses and their algorithms are pretty impressive. At night, the quality dips because the iPhone doesn't use a hardware based form of stabilization like the 1020, 1520, or 920. But its not a bad camera. I have an iPhone, the 1020 and the 1520 and while I'd declare the 1520 better over all, its not hands down significantly better like the 1020. The 1520 does provide lossless zoom however and that's a significant advantage. I love taking photos so I tinker with all 3 constantly trying to optimize them for photography.
    Objects were facing the sun, not the camera, that should've been an ideal situation as it was the time of sunset. but I found noise, too much of it.

    not trolling, just stating a fact.. it's great that you can get a 41 mp camera in a phone, and for 99% of the time that will work to perfection, it's just that when you have that once in a life time shot, you'll wish you had a better camera. Do I take my good cameras with me everywhere I go, hell no, and my 1520 is my "go to" device, but when I know that I'm going someplace important that I'll most likely never get a chance at again, I break out the good dedicated camera.
