MNB IMG_0977920 1020 pocket

Thanks to the Nokia person who took this photo! It was a bit of an odd request. I kinda like that touch of yellow poking out. It matches the belt.

A while ago, reader arts asked us to take a picture of a 1020 in your pocket. I didn’t read that comment in time to try that in NYC but since we were in Finland last week, here’s a photo (oddly only one).


One thing I learnt is that I have different sized pockets, the right one of which is not as deep as the one on the left. Note these jeans are technically ‘skinny stretch’.

Both have a Lumia inside (920 on the left), the 1020 sort of protrudes a bit but that’s because of the pocket design being shallower. Otherwise, it was lighter in the pocket and being slimmer volumetrically, the bulge was even less noticeable (even with the bump).

I checked around to see if there was another photo done by someone else. No one at the moment except the thinking alike Mark who made a video at the same location it seems that demonstrates his pocket completely eating the 1020 WITH a camera grip.

    Most thorough test I have ever seen, enjoyed watching 😁

    That’s actually pretty awesome. Pocket tests should be a standard part of device evaluations and reviews now. Thanks for posting this.

    I stopped putting my phone into pockets since late 2011 and relied on a belt pouch instead. Call me strange but I never liked the feeling of a phone rubbing on the legs while in the pocket.

      You’re strange.

      • DesR85

        Good thing is that I don’t have to worry about it falling out of my pocket. So if being strange has its advantages, that’s fine by me. 😛

    That’s a big bulge you got there 😛

    having it there standing still is one thing, walking or running is another story. it restrain movement or you snap it.

  • I hate Raf Simons for Dior. Bring back Galliano!

    Are those Givenchy x H&M bracelets? They look good on you Jay!

  • arts

    ah you remembered! looks good, not sticking out like the 808 would, but wider.

    Matt black looks better than matt yellow. I hate Nokia why didn’t they made glossy yellow 1020. I missed my yellow l920 now 🙁 1020 feels nothing, I have to give Nokia designer a credit for that so light with that camera. After holding my 920 for 7 months 1020 didn’t charm me , but its me n for the rest mass it will be surprising.
