Back in 2013, Microsoft generated a massive buzz by introducing a smartphone with a 41-MP rear shooter for the very first time. It was the Lumia 1020. Still today, the device manages to draw the attention of the general consumers. Thanks to not only its rear shooter with a ridiculously high mega pixel range but also the colorful design. In this article, you will find the detailed Lumia 1020 review. Take a look at it.

Lumia 1020 Review - Sturdy Design and Impeccable Camera Performance

Lumia 1020 Review: Design

The Lumia 1020 looks quite similar to the Lumia 920. It comes with an acceptable weight of 160g. Its build and finish quality is outstanding. Its unibody feels extremely sturdy. The paint fits perfectly with the body. More importantly, the color is inherent to the material. It is not just simply painted on like the other plastic phones.  

Lumia 1020 Review: Display

The 4.5-inch display comes with the AMOLED and PureMotionHD technologies. It produces vibrant colors and more natural deep blacks, which results in a far superior contrast level. It makes images look gorgeous. The viewing angles are really good. The display is extremely responsive. Moreover, it is able to respond to gloves. For all these reasons, the display gets a positive feedback in our Lumia 1020 review. However, we have found an issue. In terms of sunlight legibility, its performance is not up to the mark. It’s on par with the display of the Lumia 920. However, it is nowhere close to Nokia N8’s display, which has a great reputation for performing brilliantly under the direct sunlight.

Lumia 1020 Review: Camera

The 41-MP rear shooter is the headline of the Lumia 1020. Yes, the camera sensor is slightly smaller than the Lumia 808 camera sensor. However, it does feature BSI design, which enhances light sensitivity significantly. You will find a lower noise level in the low light condition. The camera also features the 6-element ZEISS lens. Its wider aperture lets more light in. As a result, the captured images look sharper and brighter than ever before. We are highly impressed with the overall performance of the camera. As a result, it gets a great feedback from us in our Lumia 1020 review.

Lumia 1020 Review: Battery

By today’s standard, the 2000 mAh battery is not big at all. But that doesn’t mean that it will not work brilliantly. In GSMArena’s endurance rating test, it lasted 61 hours, which is one of the highest in its class. It can easily make two days with a moderate usage.

Lumia 1020 Review: The Verdict

With a sturdy design and an outstanding rear shooter, the Lumia 1020 manages to stay still relevant in today’s market. If you emphasize on the attractive look and impeccable camera performance, it is definitely the right choice for you.
