Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Apart from efficient and advanced call management, I'd also like my smartphone to be able to perform functions like Document Viewer, Document Editor, Pushmail (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync), Adobe Acrobat Reader, Lync, Documents and Notes, Company Hub, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, PDF, Office 365 and much more, just like the Nokia Lumia 1020. Although the Nokia Lumia 1020 might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. With all the advanced call management features present in the Nokia Lumia 1020, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, are very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the Nokia Lumia 1020 with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Nokia Lumia 1020 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. It features enough space for all music, videos and images so that I don't have to delete anything.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 4.5 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. The display of my smartphone is mostly on through the day due to gaming or reading ebooks. The awesome viewing experience of the AMOLED display is also quite conservative in terms of power consumption. It's truly a pleasure to read ebooks or play graphic-intensive games on the AMOLED display of this smartphone. The 1.5 GHz is quite a decent frequency, but I would prefer something higher than that for gaming. Dealing with lags and slow load time really makes me impatient when it comes to gaming. Now I can enjoy extremely graphical games with no lags, and on top of this manage to multitask with the 2 GB RAM of this smartphone. I can download and save all my cool and graphic-heavy games with the 32 GB internal storage of this smartphone and still have enough room for my ebooks and apps.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4.5 inches display of the Nokia Lumia 1020 was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I prefer texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. It's not that amazing to own a smartphone with Yes, 41 MP camera resolution. There are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution. I click hundreds of cool pics with my smartphone and don't think the pictures will be so cool with this phone. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selfies. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely opt for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I like the GPS feature, especially for new locations and traffic updates. I don't worry charging when I can charge my phone with the laptop; I can even transfer files with this. I never delete images and videos in the Nokia Lumia 1020 due to less internal storage. My entire music collection travels with me in my smartphone. My world of hundreds of images, videos, music, books, social networking apps and much more simply fits inside my smartphone.
