As part of their series to see how well devices age after the initial review, Michael Fisher looks at the Nokia Lumia 1020.


  • 1020 hardware built to last (software wise)
  • Hardware near pristine condition
  • Wishes for cyan though yellow is eye catching and makes people ask if that’s the Nokia with the insane camera.
  • Best smartphone shooter of 2013
  • Despite competitors upping their game, safe bet that the 1020 camera will remain untouchable for much of the year.
  • Camera app still slow to open/save.
  • Used with care, performance in most situations is outstanding.
  • Manual controls more intuitive than any other smartphone camera.
  • With the exception of the 808 PureView, it’s the best camera we’ve ever used on a mobile phone.
  • Almost no lag has crept in to the day to day software experience.
  • Happy to continue recommending it to WP buyers
