Five Reasons Nokia Lumia 1020 Is the Phone to Have

Nokia Lumia 1020, five reasons, 5 reasons

There are more than five reasons to have the Nokia 1020 in your hand, but five is a good number to start with. While, there could be the illustrative reason- the camera, the phone offers above par reasons to own it. Sure, it’s a Windows phone and compared to the big boys of Apple and Android, the apps are lagging. Not horribly so, the Windows app store boasts the more popular apps of its massive competitors. In addition there are strong features that makes this phone an incredible buy.

1. The Camera Holds Strong in Busy Subways

You know how the New York City subway is! It truly is a busy transportation valley. ‘Engadget’ shared the story of a vacationing family. With their Androids in hand, the family was becoming frustrated with the blurry picture, low lights and inability to perfect the picture. Enter Prince Charming with his handy dandy Nokia Lumia 1020. With one focus and huge smiles, the picture was taken and Windows fans were born. The 1020 shooter takes picture quality to another whole level of awesome.

2. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is Hand Friendly

With the colossal screen of smartphones entering the market, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the phone to have if you don’t like carrying a mini tablet. It provides a 4.5-inch screen with an amazing 768 x 1280 AMOLED technology. Those images are basically “poppin!” from the screen. The PureMotion HD+ technology gives this a nice enhancement for consumers.

3. Look Ma, No Hands on the Charger!

Tired of carrying cords and plugs around? Visit Amazon for the Wireless Charging Cover for the Lumia. The coil ties into your wireless charger and done! Microsoft is only selling the black at this point, but if you don’t care about appearances when you’re charging, it’s a very handy accessory and definitely a great item to have on the go.

4. Gorilla Glass 3 Makes its Debut on the 1020

Gorilla Glass isn’t new, after all over 30 manufacturers use it, but the Gorilla Glass 3 is new and it’s sporting some nice advances. The glass is tougher, Corning states, “its atomic configuration is formulated so that the glass is more durable, and fundamentally tougher and more damage resistant even before chemical strengthening.”  In addition, the Gorilla Glass 3 sports a few advantages:

  • Improved on how much force is required to start a scratch by 3 times
  • 40 percent reduction in the ‘lateral cracks’ (the serious nails and keys ones)
  • 40 percent  increase of the force required to break the screen when lateral scratches do occur.

5. Productivity Still Wins

The productivity of Windows still remains a very popular feature on the 1020. The business apps:  Adobe acrobat reader free download, Lync (Corporate IM) free download, SkyDrive storage for documents and notes, Company Hub for enterprise applications, Office apps: Excel, Word, Powerpoint and OneNote.  The syncing capability with the Mac companion app is also pretty nice. Add in the XBox Live Hub and the phone remains a contender.

Wrap Up

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is a phone to have! Between the enhanced and debut of the Gorilla Glass 3, the impressive productivity line-up and most of all the camera? This phone packs a pretty impressive punch to draw over naysayers from Android and Apple.

      Thanks! You set a great example! 😀

    Funny how all the andriod lemmings come out of the wood work when another os is in the market. Most of you guys were trashing andriod and when iphones were #1.
    Dont get me wrong! My 8 yr. son LOOOOOVES his adriod phone! And I do miss all those Instagram selfies my friends used to take. But now I need a serious phone. one that will work as a dependable phone and less intrusive on my personal information being sold to third party companies. Oh and dont forget the malware and adware on andriod phones.
    Windows 8 is a very stable phone and the quality of Nokia make it so much better than a lot of phones on the market today.

    I have owned android before. I own a windows phone now. The windows phone is very intuitive and easy to use. As long as you don’t come with the predefined “I am an android fan” and “I have all the fart apps in the world for the iphone” there is nothing that prevents you from enjoying the windows phone. On top of that Nokia lumia 1020 has the handset that has everything one looks for. Its size, weight, looks and not to mention the new 41 megpixel camera. If you are an android or iphone user next time goto a microsoft store with an open mind and you will be pleasantly surprised at how gorgeous the lumia 1020 is.

      Perfectly stated! Once it came into my possession, I was impressed and my Android tainted mind stopped being offended lol The features and the camera is just stunning.

    I had the first iPhone, when it died, I upgraded to the Evo 4G with Android. When it came time to upgrade, I chose a Windows phone. Having used all 3, my next phone will be this Nokia 1020. I know I love this OS better than the other two, it’s time to get Nokia hardware and that amazing camera 😀

    • Angelina Bouc   August 4, 2013 at 8:25 pm

      I agree! Windows stepped up their OS game with the 1020 🙂

  8. Chris   August 4, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Can I get it running Meego?

    • Angelina Bouc   August 4, 2013 at 7:45 pm

      Hey Chris- I think the Maemo forum discussed it and someone mentioned they had it on their 1020.

  9. HJP23   August 4, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    Unfortunately, it’s Windows 8. Pity.

    Sorry, no sale.

    • Angelina Bouc   August 4, 2013 at 7:21 pm

      I am a die-hard Android girl. I have to say during my trial of the 1020- the camera sold me on it. I still have my Droid tho! lol I so understand.

    Wow, how much did you get paid to write this drivel? YOu could not fool a 3 year old with this crap.

    • Angelina Bouc   August 4, 2013 at 6:52 pm

      Fooling people with the specs of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is not needed, Esther. Thank you for reading the article. It just details the best features of a phone I was able to work with. Have a better night!

        Like the way you answered, because it could make you irritated in som way 🙂 I also respond to reviews like this when I feel they lean to Android or iPhone. The first reviews were like that because most reviewers have an Android/iPhone in the pocket. Now the reviews are changing because the quality of Nokia phones are even recognized by reviewers like you.

        Regular users already recognized the quality of these phones. You know why? Because their grading was much higher as that of the reviewers.

        I am a Windows Phone developer. Cant wait untill Business users start using these Phones because the development environment is great. Used to work with Blackberry environment but in no way it can compete. Webservices are so easy to use on this platform that you can extend the Business network with usefull applications and let you work remote with Tablet/SmartPhone.

        The greatest review was of a site that says: 1020 = new iPhone, i Like that 🙂 could not image that reviewers changed to unbiased reviews.

        Bad is the fact they called the 920 “heavy”. Because of that Nokia dumped wireless charging. If reviewers did more analysis they would not mentioned that to big.

        • Angelina Bouc   August 5, 2013 at 5:07 am

          I became a believer with the 1020. I almost did with the Windows Phone 8X by HTC – another great choice, when I was side-stepped with an Android. The functionality and seamless capability is making it competitive, and frankly, I think more users will start considering it if they realized the pure benefit of the productivity apps and features. Thanks for your comment!

    I own stock in Nokia.

  12. Gn   August 4, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Now it just needs android

    Have a 1020 and love it. Photos are obviously amazing, but the rest of the phone is quite solid as well. Anybody looking for a new phone should seriously consider it.

    • Angelina Bouc   August 4, 2013 at 7:40 pm

      I agree!
