What separates you from the 41-megapixel PureView camera of the Lumia 1020 is just $339
Arguably the best camera phone of any platform, the AT&T Lumia 1020 is now priced at just $339 at the Microsoft Store and at Amazon, and the beauty of the pricing is that you don't need to sign any two-year agreements for the 41-megapixel PureView smartphone, which can run the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system after a firmware update.
The Lumia 1020 is available in three colors: black, white, and yellow.
Customers who do not want to pay the out-of-contract price could sign up for a new AT&T contract and obtain the Lumia 1020 for just $49.00 through Microsoft.
The Lumia 1020 has been on the market for a little over a year now and a successor has not been announced yet.
If you're interested in the Lumia 1020, be sure to read our review of the phone.
Will a relatively inexpensive contract-free Lumia 1020 be your next camera or smartphone? Or will you wait for something a bit more modern like the high-end mid-range Lumia 830?

So I really don't know if we see any improvement here, because Microsoft certainly only licensed the technology, but development remains at Microsoft.
I think its faulty hardware though. For my case, the camera lens doesn't close until I restart the phone.
The OS is still buttery smooth, & constantly improving.
I had the chance to go with a 1520 - I am SO glad I chose the 1020 instead.
Here's to the follow up!

Nothing to be concerned about :)
SDcard might be too slow to take 40 MPix-pictures, but for installing apps it's very useful.
