Hands-on review on Lumia 1020 and shots of the new Lumia
Lumia 1020 is another Windows Smartphone from Nokia and also it’s the second Nokia PureView device with a whooping 41MP camera and excellent Optical Image Stabilization technology. It is in polycarbonate body that makes it lighter than it looks. The phone weighs 158g but it’s quite handy. The thickest part of the gadget is where the camera is located.
It seems that the Lumia 1020 has borrowed much from its predecessors. For instance take the display that looks similar to that of Lumia 920. The new Lumia sports a 4.5 inch AMOLED Puremotion HD+ 1280 x 768 pixels display. The display is similar the screen of Lumia 920. Similarly the 41MP camera could be traced to that of Nokia 808 PureView Smartphone.
What make the new Lumia 41MP camera different from its predecessor is F2.2 aperture, BSI sensor and RGB sensor. BSI sensor improves low light performance and RGB sensor is for white balance correction. And not to forget to mention the OIS that was first introduced on Lumia 920. With OIS feature, the Lumia 1020 has 3-5 times longer exposure time than Lumia 820. The Xenon Flash in Lumia 1020 reminds us of the flash in the Nokia 808 but the new Lumia has got smaller flash than its predecessor.
On the software side, Lumia 1020 packs dual-core Krait processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and 2 GB of RAM. Internal memory stands at 32 GB and no place for mircorSD card is given. You could say that no microSD is borrowed from previous Lumia phones.
