Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Document Editor, Pushmail (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync), Adobe Acrobat Reader, Lync, Documents and Notes, Company Hub, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, PDF, Office 365 present in this device. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Nokia Lumia 1020 that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Nokia Lumia 1020 is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Nokia Lumia 1020 is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Nokia Lumia 1020 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. This phone features a very nice storage for all my images, videos and music as I hardly have to delete anything due to storage issues.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. I have my display running most of the day either because of reading or gaming. Thanks to the AMOLED display which not only offers a cool display, but even saves me enough battery to last for longer hours. I love gaming and reading on the AMOLED display of this smartphone. Although I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming, the 1.5 GHz is not that bad an option. The frequent lags and sluggish loading of games of the dual core processor drives me up the wall. The Nokia Lumia 1020 manages heavy apps simultaneously and also delivers a smooth performance with my graphic-intensive games. The 32 GB internal storage of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is really meant for me and my ever-growing ebook and gaming collection.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Nokia Lumia 1020 was its 4.5 inches display. The screen size of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 41 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The Nokia Lumia 1020 never makes me delete videos and photos because of storage issues. I have my entire music library on my smartphone. All my amazing pics, videos, music, apps and books easily fit in my smartphone.
