Nokia has certainly lived off its days. Most of us remember Nokia as one of the most iconic mobile phone manufacturers. Long before touch screen smart phones made it to the top, Nokia ruled the consumer market with its simple yet effective and economical handsets. Today the company has been absorbed into the Microsoft Corporation. But the brand still lives on. It seems that Nokia made a wrong turn when it decided to manufacture Windows mobile OS based smart phones when almost every other major mobile phone manufacturing company was shaking hands with the Google in support of the Android platform. But before Nokia took its last breath, it delivered a gem of a phone. We are talking about Nokia Lumia 1020. This Smartphone, even though released more than a year ago, still rivals flagship models from other smart phone manufacturers. Let’s take a look at what makes this phone so special.

Nokia Lumia 1020 – A DSLR and A Phone

  • It is all about the Camera:

It feels like the engineers at Nokia wanted to combine a DSLR camera and a smart phone into one functional unit and that’s exactly what they did when they started manufacturing Nokia Lumia 1020. Most probably you might have already heard about this but just in case if you do not know it then let us amaze you by telling that this phone has an astonishing and outstanding 41 Megapixel rear camera. We know that pixels are not the only thing that matter in photography, but hey it doesn’t hurts to have more pixels, right? The camera is so prominent that it protrudes out of the back of the smart phone. To read more about the mind blowing features of this camera visit

  • Large Battery:

Nokia Lumia 1020 is a large phone and a large phone needs a large battery. It comes with a 2000mAh battery. Nokia promises that it can provide continuous power for up to 15 hours of talk time and multimedia usage. Nevertheless the phone needs a lot of juice to perform all its functions. The large camera module and battery make this phone a bit heavy but then you also have a DSLR and a phone in one compact package.

  • Memory:

Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with 512mb of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. We know that 512 sounds a bit too less especially when there are phones that are supporting up to 4GB of RAM. But this phone doesn’t need all that much of memory. Its primary function is to let you talk and take beautiful pictures and these functions are well performed even with such a limited memory. However we do wish that Nokia provided us with a bit of more internal storage but you can always expand your memory with the help of an SD card.
