Nokia Lumia 1020 – Review of a Phone with a Great Camera

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is by far the only phone with the best camera feature. And for some people it is actually like buying a camera with phone features.

Nokia Lumia 1020 Design

The Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with 4.5 inches of touch screen display with 1280 x 720 resolutions. The left side of the phone is clear of any button or port, while the right side houses the power button, the dedicated camera button and the volume rocker.

The micro-USB port for charging is located at the base of the phone along with the microphone/speaker. On top is the tray for the SIM card, the headset jack and the mic designed for noise cancellation.

The big camera module is located at the back of the device, making this side quite noticeable. The falsh, camera lens and the LED light are also located at the back side. Because of this unique back design, you should never expect it to every lay flat on its back.

Because of the huge camera incorporated into this phone, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is not the lightest nor the thinnest phone on the market today. It is though, lighter and thinner compared to the Nokia Lumia 920.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 measures 130 mm in height, 71.4 mm in width, 10.4 in thickness and weighs 158 grams. In other words, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is somewhat bloated and wide. Despite the size and the weight though, it is easy to get used to this phone.

Nokia Lumia 1020 Features

The Lumia 1020 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 2000 mAh battery, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB internal memory storage.

This phone also houses Windows 8, and for those who have used a Windows phone before, using the Lumia 1020 will be a breeze. The Amber version of the Windows 8 is actually the latest on the Microsoft platform; this means this phone is surely not just about its camera. Despite the fact that there are no major features added, there are still a lot of thing that you can do with this phone.

Reviewing the Nokia Lumia 1020 without reviewing its camera mean an incomplete review. So here goes. The 41 megapixel camera built into the Lumia 1020 is by far the best. This is a PureView camera that has received praises and great reviews before. Thus, it can only be said that the Lumia 1020 should also be praised for its camera feature.


The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a good phone that comes with a great camera. That is a simple fact. If you are looking for a phone with features that can take you to the next level, then you should look for something else.
If you are also looking for a slim or light phone, again the Lumia 1020 is not the phone for you. But, if you want a phone that can provide you with a camera experience like you would get from a professional camera, then by all means go for this phone.
