Let’s get to the point, Nokia Lumia 1020 is the best camera phone in the market right now. It’s 41MP mechanical shutter camera delivers what it promises – top notch image quality in a mobile phone. If that is what one is looking for a phone, I would highly recommend the Nokia Lumia 1020 of course, but if you consider the balance of the phone system, form factor and price, that’s where the decision making comes in. Here’s my lowdown on Nokia’s best phone to date.
No doubt Nokia has been in the forefront of camera phone hardware. I’ve had their N82 and N8 (which I’m still using) and recently they stunned the world with their groundbreaking Nokia 808 Pureview which had an impressive 41mp cameraphone. Now Nokia is again pushing the boundaries of camera phone technology with their latest Nokia Lumia 1020. During the launch night, they showcased the nifty camera interface of the Pro Camera App that can make camera usability idiot-proof, the impressive mechanical shutter slow speed functions, the low light capability all packaged in the sleek Windows Phone 8. Then the eye-popping Php 35,650 price tag (which comes with a free grip worth Php 4000) was announced.
