We aim our viewfinder at the smartphone competition and hit the shutter button to find out if the 41 MP camera on the Lumia 1020 makes it the best cameraphone around.
Best camera on any mobile device; LTE connectivity; great sound and video recording abilities; good performance thanks to non-resource intensive Windows Phone 8 OS and 2 GB or RAM; good display; and well screwed together.
Not the thinnest, lightest or most premium feeling Windows Phone smartphone; not up to date in terms of specs when compared against its rivals; expensive; and app gap between Windows Phone Store and Google Play/App Store.
Best cameraphone on the market and a really good alternative for anyone shopping for something different to Android devices or the iPhone.
