The Lumia 1020 Has Killed The DSLR

A few years ago, when the Nokia N8 had just been released, I did a post titled N8 v a DSLR. It turned out to be hugely popular because the notion that a cameraphone could challenge the almighty DSLR, was a a concept that was almost unbelievable. At that point in time I did not suggest that the N8 was better than the DSLR, but that it was good enough for day light shots, and in the night you’d find it lacking – still it was a sign of things to come.

7 Reasons Why The Lumia 925 Is A Perfect Smartphone

Doing what I do, I have access to a wide variety of smartphones and given my inclination, most of the times those are all flagships devices. But despite all that, there is a one smartphone that I keep coming back to – the Nokia Lumia 925. It isn’t the latest or the greatest Windows Phone. It doesn’t have a 41 MP camera, or a full HD 1080p display, or a Snapdragon 800 processor, and it isn’t even very new – having been announced back in May 2013. But there is something about this device, that makes me keep holding onto it, and in post I try and figure out why.

Hands On With The Nokia Lumia 1520

Nokia Lumia 1520

A reading of the Nokia Lumia 1520’s spec sheet ensures that you come away feeling like it’s a no compromise device. A 6″ 1080p display, 2 GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip, a 3400 mAh battery with inbuilt wireless charging, 4 HAAC mics for capturing great audio, a 20 MP Pureview Carl Zeiss camera that brings a lot of the 1020’s heroics in a smaller package, a beautiful unibody design and finally the construction — classic Nokia. That’s to say its solid, feels premium, and comes in a bunch of colours – white, yellow, red and black in this case.

I spent some handy on time with this beast, and this is what I think.
