 nokia lumia 1020 is much likely the other high end nokia lumia devices which features windows phone 8 os from microsoft .at the windows phone app store currently featuring 160000 apps out of which nearly 120000 for wp8 ,it offers all the essential apps for a person but not all famous apps which still makes its rival os android and ios leap a cutting edge at the their app stores soaring with 7-8 lacks of apps.along with all this it features all the carrier specific applications and nokia stuff which includes Nokia Care, Wallet ,Music, Pro Cam, Smart Cam, as well as a set of Here-based programs, such as City Lens, Drive+ Beta, Maps and Transit. and some 3rd part apps like FamilyMap, Locker, Navigator, Radio etc which can be uninstalled if not of use 


The lumia 1020 gives a decent performance and a smooth user experiences ,thanks to dual core snapdragon cpu ,Adreno 225 GPU and 2GB RAM for making a wonderful experience with the phone features wp8 for a smooth performance.its batteries offer nearly 10-12 hours usage for heavy users and much more for normal users.

SunSpider 1.0 (MS)905.4903.2906.2
AnTuTu (*GPU test off)11,819*11,457*11,084 (9,874*)
SunSpider: lower scores are better

the speakers are average for music and movies though they do not offer a crisp in depth experience but they are fine,the call quality is awesome and clear . nokia offers its external cover for a extra battery boast so that you never run out of the juice while on the go ,you can buy it seperately.

so overall its a pretty device featuring wp8, well received from nokia making it one of the best windows phone present in the market till now with most compelling and competitive camera for photographers .
if you are a really into having a obsession of taking photos and doesn't want to carry your point and shoot camera anymore ,then you can give it a shoot ,i hope it will come upto your expectations.
