    Man, I want a 1030 to come out soooooo bad. I had my 1020 for about 2 years and it is the only phone that I have kept for that long. I've had most all others prior whether it was Apple, Samsung, Sony, Blackberry, etc. I just loved that phone but the mic broke and since it was a MS Store purchase with replacement warranty, I picked up the best that I could, an 830. The 830 is a decent phone but it is no 1020. I miss my 1020. Please bring us a 1020 successor MS. I will buy it on day one.

    I have an 810, a 1020 and a 1520. All three have features that I really like and some I dislike. If a 1030 would bring me:

    * The battery life of the 1520 (or at least close to it.)
    * Enough processor speed to shoot decent video and speedy burst photo shooting
    * The hump (as this helps a lot to not drop the phone while holding it, I actually find it quite brilliant just for that reason, but it also makes the 1020 stand out, gives the phone character.)
    * Xenon flash
    * OS featuring three rows of tiles, like the 1520. (This would be fine on a 5" display.)
    * AMOLED!! (The 1520 display is nice as long as you don't compare it to the 1020 AMOLED, even though the resolution of the 1020 isn't as high as the 1520 display, it is SO much better. The 1520 is much more blurry (well visible with for instance white on green background text), black is definitely poor compared to the 1020.)

    I would definitely buy it.

    I am not too fussed about more than the already amazing 41MP of the 1020. Sensor size is very okay too. Only the focusing distance, as has been mentioned is a little issue. I love shooting macros and this is not the strongest point of the 1020 optics. Sensor wise I think it leaves nothing to be desired, it is more than sufficient.

    SD card slot I would definitely like to have, as it is an isolated partition of memory, and I like to take specific playlists of music with me for certain occasions. It is also a cool feature for storing various "Here" maps on to.

    Not happening. The camera phone is over. Concentrating on other devices. The 1020 is the last one. Keep it and enjoy it. Besides, once it gets fully baked windows 10 mobile on it, it is going to be super again. Like breathing life into it all over again.

    I thought it had been dropped from the "getting Windows 10" statements Microsoft are making now?

    Not that I have heard. It's on the latest list I have seen. Now, how long it takes AT&T to push it to us is another story. Hopfully soon.

    It don't feel like a NEED a new phone right now so it seriously depends on what the 'Surface phone' brings to the table.

    But yeah I'll be getting one of the two lol.

    Even if the phone has huge mpx and other awesome spects, the real problem is the speed of the camera or at least I think so
