Nokia Lumia 1020: Hands on and first impression
Today we finally got our grips on the Lumia 1020, Nokia’s soon to be released Windows Phone sporting a 41MP camera with BSI sensor and optical image stabilization.
After the break we have a few initial photos of the device and a quick video of it in action.
What’s our verdict (so far)? It’s thinner and lighter than you would expect. We also really dig the matte yellow color, which is akin to the Lumia 720. Sure you can feel that hump a bit but ain’t it worth it to take such gorgeous photos? We think so.
The phone also packs a few other tidbits that we weren’t aware of, but more on that a bit later.

but i wish if possible, Nokia would add an SD card (64Gb or 128Gb) on this camera grip so that those of us wishing to have more storage would have something to fallback on. Since they do not want to increase storage or put SD card on the actual phone
Out of curiousity, what's the other sensor in the comparison shot?
Or maybe you're just equating a high megapixel count with superlative image quality, which wouldn't be a reliable indicator, either.
In any event, I think that they Nokia Play To app will scratch your particular itch.
it is just the PERFECT phone!!!!
any ideea of the price of the unlocked version?
But does anyone know what watch he's wearing??
Besides the watch, amazing phone. Truly, truly love Windows Phone!
Apart from that, nice phone for those who search for a camera above everything else. I can see it competing with the Samsung Galaxy Camera in that aspect.
As for me, no thanks. I registre happily that it has 2GB, something I expect to be standard or increased on the next generation devices. But the rest, I don't care. I actually like it better with the camera cover on. As long as the phone is black, of course. Unlike Daniel, I have absolutely no love for yellow or bright coloured phones =P
They need to come out with a new Design before they become like Samsung & their Egg snapped phones
