    apparently she's dead now :-(.
    There's another thread going about this where I've commented about it in detail. I think it's highly unlikely anything to do with Apple being responsible. My guess is an after market charger. There's been big issues with them here in the UK where a child got hurt by one.

    If I had to choose between those, my primary would be the iPhone 5 and the 1020 secondary. In reality, it'd be the next iphone with a larger battery and the 822

    The main reason I won't (or can't) get the 1020 is the fact it is an AT&T exclusive. I would get it in a heartbeat if it was on Verizon.

    I will buy the 1020 but I feel that the I5 will be my long term phone for awhile. All my family uses iMessage and its hard not to have it.
    Same here! My whole family is engulfed in Apple. It makes it really hard to switch.

    I would choose a Lumia 1020 (I own a 920) over the S4 and iP5 because to me I like the UI of WP and the market is way to saturated with Galaxy devices (S4, Zoom, Active, Mini, Mega, Note) and there has even been reports of the S4 lagging. The iPhone is just a "Im cool" device and all the devs develop for it because its a cash cow for them. For me I don't use apps really outside the core apps that come with the phone and I really like the integration between my PC and phone. To me its just a seamless and overall great experience. I never pay attention to people who complain about "lack of apps".....how many can you use really.

    The Nokia Lumia 1020.

    It's hardware from Nokia; say no more.

    Okay . . . I'll say more since that wasn't too specific.
    --Nokia, in my opinion, is second to none in the hardware department. The devices are always solid and sexy (nowadays anyway, lol)
    --WP8 runs silky smooth. No hiccups, no freezing. My motto for electronics: Function before features -- and WP is really picking up the latter.

    Lumia 1020 of course. I'm a full time professional photographer browsing WPCentral so the choice is obvious LOL.
    Curious to get a pro photog's hands-on opinion and setting recommendations when you get the 1020. That would make for a great standalone forum thread :)

    Thank you for brining up the one thing that people seem to ignore or completely forget about.... SECURITY! Not only does the windows phone platform offer seamless integration in to the PC OS with the largest installed base in the world, it does so with unparalleled security. Personally I am very worried about the future of digital privacy and having piece of mind when it comes to my mobile devices is very important to me. In my opinion this should be one of the first things people look at when choosing a device and the ecosystem it operates within, not camera megapixels or customization!
    I like WP as much as the next person but if you're concerned about your "digital privacy" or want a "secure" phone probably best to stick with a regular ol' feature phone and take yourself off of Twitter, Facebook, Linked-in, candygram or whatever it's called lol Not trying to be snarky but a no-name brand phone with no features that only makes calls (and maybe texts) is probably the safest way to go (other than smoke signals and Morse code). But of the three brands you mention, the previous poster is dead-on correct for the reasons he gave.

    I would hold off on that iphone for now, a Chinese woman got zapped with her i5.
    The iPhone 5 sold over 5 million units within 3 days of its launch. If my chances of getting zapped are 1 in 5 million I think those are pretty good odds.

    But the i5 has actually sold many times that amount since it was launched, so the odds are even more favorable than 1 in 5 million.

    There is a greater probability that I will be struck by lightning this year (between 1 in 750,000 and 1 in 500,000 according to Wikipedia).

    Listen people, any one that thinks their personal data is strictly... Well personal in our current age of digital conversion and interconnectivity needs to catch a wake up, all of our SMS, IM and phone calls are being tracked monitored and stored if need be, I dont want to go in to conspiracy theories here but this is the reality of a post 9/11 world.... But dont take my word for it, just ask Edward Snowden. The fact is, you can expect your personal information to be on a dozen different servers around the world that large corporations and governments can easily access. But this is a given and although disturbing and uncomfortable to think about it is not these large powers that pose a threat, they use this massive database of information for everything from national security monitoring to targeted marketing through personalized advertising. What I am worried about is the individual... That hacker that manages to get in to these databases and get our address, phone numbers and banking details...... But I have gotten waaay off topic here, fact is Windows phone gives me a sense of security and trust that I just dont feel when working within other ecosystems U_U

    Well said In Limbo! And exactly how I feel! Windows Phone is a straight to the point, no nonsense OS and it does it all in style and speed. Nokia's Lumia devices has won multiple design and innovation awards and no one can deny they are rock solid to boot! I can respect that Windows Phone is not for everyone and I always say "different stokes for different folks ^_^" but personally I love the WP interface and will be the first to admit its not perfect.... Yet, but that combined with Nokias awesome hardware has made me fall in love and they will have my allegiance for some time to come!
