Rated 5 out of 5 by Isaac34 In love with this phone, it's scary.
I've been using this phone since it came to Canada, I upgraded from my 900 through a special offer.
This device blows me away.
It would be sacrilege to call this a phone, because it is so much more than that. I can do everything I need with this Lumia, and event scheduling and planning are a breeze (especially with Cortana on 8.1#.
The phone itself is fast, functional, and oh so easy to use #mind you, most smartphones are). I need not say much about the camera, I'll let the 41 megapixels do the talking. Might I add that the hardware is practically indestructible
I don't know why I'm writing a review. I've never done this before, because frankly I don't give a darn. But I couldn't stand to see the 3.7 rating it had when I came to this page. So I guess in this case I DO give a darn.
Get this phone, it's an underrated gem.
Ps. Oh and I don't know what she's talking about in terms of battery life. Since updating to 8.1 this thing is pulling 24 hours easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by anonymous9 Best phone I've ever had!!
Just traded in my apple phone, and I will never look back!! This phone is awesome, I'm so excited about it. Great features, camera, music. I really really hope that nokia and microsoft continues this phone in the future, once my contract is up in 2 years I'm already looking forward to the newest model! Great phone, I don't know why anyone would pick anything else over this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PsycoSoft more then expected
I also use an iPhone 5s, and a nexus 5. For basic use, the nexus is my first choice, but for personal use the 1020 has no peer. Camera unreal, as are sizes of picture files, text and email easiest I've tried. Battery life beats the iPhone easily, but it could use a bigger battery. Since it is my 'fun' phone it gets used heavily. Carry a portable charger, as Nokia advises, and you can recharge it in your pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PedroLaPizza Best Phone I ever had!
It takes extraordinary pictures, the app selection is absolutely fine. I bought a Nokia for traveling because I knew this company has a record that their phones are built like a tank. The quality Is way better than what other companies can offer. I am in love with this phone

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlmostHappy Good but could be better
It's been about 6 months I use a nokia lumia 1020 and I encountered about 5 technical problems that I've got to go to Rogers directly and in 2 on the 5 times, they sent my phone so I lost it for 2 weeks and after the first time I got it back, it took 1 month and after this delay I sent it back to repair because it have already broke....I love all the features and the apparences but they need to fix the bugs unless to try to have a 41 mega pixel of pictures -.- 41 mega pixels take a photo as a 20 because on this size of screen you cannot see all thoses pixels so it's useless...
PS: I work with computers and even my basis on those Equipment, I was unable to fix all the issue by myself

Rated 2 out of 5 by nucnick Product not well designed
I bought my Lumia 1020 two weeks ago. This is my second phone (first - iPhone4). Fist thing I noticed - the body of the phone gets quite hot in area of the main camera. Battery life is somewhat shorter that in iPhone. There is not much accessories for this model. Worth of all - it died on me when charging two hours ago. It died in a such way, that one can see frozen clock, but it was impossible to reset the unit. I am NOT recommending this model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DAunhappy Battery Life is unacceptable
I have just tried my second 1020 with no success. The Battery last for a max of 8 hours. I've updated reset and updated turned off all apps left it on airplane mode and the battery died overnight, 7 hours.
I'll not try anymore - will be switching to another manufacturer.
