Wired has reviewed the Nokia Lumia 1020 and they’re super happy with it. The camera is is not only the best camera phone, blowing away every other smartphone but it’s as good as most point and shoots in its price range. And given that it’s priced at $300, that’s some pretty high end P&S.

  • this new Windows Phone-powered mobile does not disappoint.
  • Refined piece of hardware
  • Most importantly, the camera is absolutely amazing. It takes better photos than any other camera phone and is just as good as most point-and-shoots in its price range (it’s $300 on contract from AT&T).
  • Videos shot on the Lumia 1020 are also some of the best I’ve seen from a smartphone’s camera
  • camera software is just as impressive, and it’s the distinguishing feature that makes the Lumia 1020 a much better camera phone than the matching physical camera in the PureView 808
  • Beyond the camera, the Lumia 1020 is as good as any other Windows Phone 8 handset.
  • The OS is always speedy and easy to use. The on-board apps work without problem
  • That said, if you want the absolute best camera on a smartphone, then the Lumia 1020 is for you.
  • camera blows away the iPhone’s, along with all other smartphones we’ve tested this year

Cheers dontom for the tip!
