Nokia Lumia 1020 Overview

Continuing their impressive range of Windows Phone 8 handsets, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is set to deliver a stunning Windows experience with all the extras that Nokia bring to the table, increasing productivity and enhancing social updates for improved communication across your world.

View all of your HD photos on the Lumia 1020’s vivid 4.5” AMOLED ClearBlack (1280x768) display, a 2000 mAh battery (with wireless support via the cover) is included for optimum power. A smooth, speedy user experience is guaranteed with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor along with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory with an option for a further 7GB of free memory provided by SkyDrive cloud storage.

Nokia have certainly established a new benchmark in the Smartphone market with the Nokia Lumia 1020, boasting a second generation 41 megapixel sensor. Nokia have upgraded the camera's zoom capabilities, enabling people to discover more detail than the eye can see. Along with Nokia’s innovative PureView Technology, including optical image stabilization, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is set to rival any top end digital camera that is currently available.

The Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41 megapixel sensor features leading ZEISS optics with six physical lenses ensuring that you produce quality pictures even in low light conditions. Blurry videos are a thing of the past; as is poor quality of sound thanks to Nokia’s Rich Recording - perfect for recording your favourite band live at a concert!

Nokia have combined leading hardware technology along with a new application called Nokia Pro Camera, which allows anyone to take professional quality photos. The new zoom feature allows people to discover and then re-discover the finer details of an image, with an intuitive interface that offers you a preview of how the settings will affect the final photo or video. Nokia Pro Camera makes capturing, editing and sharing photos and videos an absolute breeze with unrivalled clarity.

Dual Capture is another new feature that has been introduced on the Nokia Lumia 1020. The device simultaneously takes a whopping 38 megapixel shot for endless editing opportunities, and it then creates a standard 5 megapixel picture that can be shared on all of your favourite social networks with Windows Phone 8 - these are just a few features amongst many more.

Social media and multimedia are catered for, as always, with full WP8 integration for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Picasa, Flickr and more with NFC and DLNA technologies supporting instant sharing between compatible devices and other home media technology. Gamers have everything they need with support for DirectX 11 and the Xbox Live Hub to synchronise your Xbox Live account.

Nokia Drive and Nokia Transport retain the enhancements added in WP8 to create a comprehensive and thoroughly integrated mapping experience for drivers. Offline maps are available straight out of the box avoiding the need for constant connections and, in many cases, downloading new maps.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is certainly going to turn heads, especially photography enthusiasts, the main focal point is of course the camera and its many glittering features but let us not forgot that this is a top end Smartphone that offers an array of features across the board.

"If you want a phone with the best camera by a massive margin, buy it. The W8M OS is very good, more and more apps every month. (Still no Sonos!) Audio is good if a little low on the earpiece. Battery life only average, you need the camera grip/battery if you want to use the phone as a camera throughout a whole day. It certainly won't last without it. Also check out the brilliant 1520. Camera not quite so good (20mp) but better than the 1020 in every other way except portability. That's why I have both....!"

"Absolutely fantastic camera performance, but it's more than that- a super smooth UI,with an intuitive style and a sexy design overall. The previous supposed 'issues' with lack of apps is now a dead point, as all the key things are there-overall I have no hesitation in saying this is the best phone I've ever owned/used."

"Huge fan of the Lumia range,and the 808. This phone is a supercharged offspring of the two. the build quality is superb. Matte colours are so much better than the glossy 920's. Camera is simply stunning, believe the hype. it really is that good.

prepare to be blown away!"

"I thought my Nokia N8s 12mp camera was superb but the 1020 is light years ahead
Only negative is it should have had micro sd expandable memory or at least 64Gb built in.
