Some customer reviews of Nokia Lumia 1020

Most helpful reviews

John, Leicester Business or web user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Windows Phone 8 is a grossly underrated Operating System. Simple & logical, very customizable. Easy read display, very good in bright light. People gripe pictures take too long to process between shots, er they don't, if you learn how to use the camera that is. Camera itself brilliant better than a lot of dedicated compact cameras.
Battery life good provided the excellent sat nav or location apps are turned off, used as a phone with a bit of browsing and a lot of email & txt it lasts all day. IE web browser fast and works well. This is my second 1020 (smashed first beyond repair) and I simply love it.
Bad points:
Corners of case can dig into hand. Gets very hot at the back. Slippery to hold with damp hands. No sd card slot. Breaks when you drop it!

Patrick, York Business or web user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Camera is fantastic

Operating system is very intuitive

Plays loads of video formats including flash

Swipe text input very quick

Mapping and navigation best on the market

Actual cell reception better than most.
Bad points:
Cortana is pretty useless if you're a regular Siri user.

Some mainstream apps not as well implemented as IOS and Android versions.

Charles, Canterbury Music and entertainment lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Everything in and on the phone is fantastic, battery life isn't long if you are using a satnav app, or playing music, but everything else is great this is exactly what I would expect from a modern day smartphone.
Bad points:
Not a bad word to say :-D

Claire, Paignton Business or web user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The camera is brilliant on this phone. The windows operating system is easy to use and personalise to you usage.
Bad points:
The battery life is really not great and I have found I am turning a lot of apps off until I am going to use them as I can't have them running in the background.

There are sadly a lot of android/apple apps that are not compatible with these windows phones, so it is worth checking that your current apps can work on them. Standard things for social media like Facebook, Google,Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and the likes are all compatible...
