    As the title is self explanatory,I am really confused b/w buying either of these two phones (my choice will be based sheerly on camera)...I am a rather hesitant for Pureview 808 as It doesn't have OIS and some people complained about its slow shutter speeds due to which,even a slight handshake cause blur,as a matter of fact the lumia 1020 is out of my budget,also in some forums I have seen that 808 is not good for capturing fast moving objects in low light...Also which camera has good telephoto zoom as i am mainly aiming for landscape photography...So please kindly help me i am really confused....

    No support for 808 so it'll be pretty dead from software end. However its camera is actually superior even to 1020... If you don't mind the ecosystem then i would suggest a 808 over 920 as i personally think my 920 doesn't always get daylight shots right and the pureview is cool but i guess 808 can handle that with a fairly steady hand. So it's all about ecosystem...
    Also buy a 925 if you think of 920 , it is better than 920 as it has an added lens for clearer shots and is lightweight..

    Btw I heard that after portico/amber update,the daylight white balance/softness issues were fixed,and the quality improved drastically? isn't it?

    It did improve but still I don't believe it's as outstanding...
    Some comparisons (I hope you have already seen them)
