“I'm always looking to carry less devices with me and this definitely makes it to where you can leave the camera at home. i was in love with my 920 but this 1020 with the amazing camera is hands down the best phone to get if you love to take any kind of photo.”

“…I feel good that the photos I take of my kids and family casually on a daily basis are actually great looking...nothing is worse than a poor quality photo to remember a once in a lifetime event. The optional camera grip for the Lumia 1020 is also a smart buy because of the added battery, larger shutter button and TRIPOD MOUNT!”
