Release Date:
The Design: Solid, polycarbonate unibody design available in several colours.
The Display: 4.5", AMOLED, 768 x 1280 pixels, 334 ppi pixel density.
The Camera: 41MP camera, F/2.2 aperture with dedicated shutter button, Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, HDR, 1080p full HD video recording @30fps, 1.2MP front-facing camera.
The Audio: The speaker is located at the bottom of the phone and produces an average sound quality and loudness.
The Call Reception & Quality: Both good.
The Battery: Capacity: 2000 mAh. Talk time: Up to 13.5 hours for 3G. Standby time: Up to 384 hours for 3G.
The UI Speed: Smooth and fast, with no lag even with several demanding applications open in the background.
The Overall Experience: Probably the most well-rounded Windows phone to date with a solid construction, a nice screen and quite simply the best camera on any smartphone right now. The phone performs fast and is virtually lag free even with several demanding applications running. The Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive applications are a real benefit as they contain all the important features, are user friendly and most importantly, can be used offline (without a data connection). It's not a cheap phone but if you're looking for the best camera phone out there, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is definitely it.

Amazing camera, solid build quality, nice screen, fast, lag-free UI experience, Nokia Drive sat nav app.


Non-removable battery, non-expandable storage, Windows OS still behind Android and iOS in terms of features, customization and number of apps.

How To Buy

Things to Consider

Though the Nokia Lumia 1020 is a modern smartphone, everyone has different preferences when it comes to what they want from a smartphone. With that in mind, here are the top things we believe you should be aware of before buying the Nokia Lumia 1020:

  • The polycarbonate body of the phone is prone to chipping or scratching if dropped, put in a pocket with metal coins or keys, or handled roughly. We therefore recommend you invest in a case and screen protector (see accessories)
  • The back of the phone is non-removable which means that you can’t expand the storage, can’t replace the battery and repairs are more difficult and expensive than on most other phones, especially without specialist tools
  • The Nokia Lumia 1020 uses a micro-SIM
