I think, who cares if it is a little "over saturated" ? In many instances, it makes the photo look better. Come on people...if you really think the iPhone is even in the same league, you're kidding yourselves. P.S. ... It really isn't fair that the hallway photos taken with the iPhone are perfectly straight, and the Nokia photos are slightly tilted, making folks believe, at first glance, something is off about the Nokia photos.

Wow, if you think that Nokia is just in it for the camera you have to do your homework. Nokia breaks out of the box BIGTIME when it comes to phone development. They made an EXPLOSIVELY powerful camera look sexy on a phone. I bought the 1020 for work after switching off of IPHONE and Galaxy in tandem and came up with the following reasons on how nokia is years ahead of the game: First, just look at the phone. Notice anything different? CORNERS. when is the last time you saw corners on a smart phone? The answer is never. Tie that into a sturdy slate casing and a pocket size smaller than the S4 without zoom, and boom, sexy. Next, the sure power of the phone. If you buy a 1020, you are basically getting a handheld windows tablet that can take better photos than your stand alone camera. With social media integration and photo editing on the spot, this phone is a professional in marketing, advertising, PR's dream. Not only that but the OS is snappy and your hotspot lasts for six hours. Finally, the OS itself. They made windows 8 work above industry standards, with a more powerful processor than is fathomable for phone technology. Speed baby, hot, nasty, badass speed. Sometimes brand loyalty just won't let people see the light. If you are between contracts and want to join a REAL innovative crowd, get on board with this phone.

1) Since any camera along with any photostitching app can render as a big a file as with any other camera........a big panorama file in an iphone is meaningless really. 2) I wouldn't brag so much about multitasking in an Iphone 5 with it's 1GB ram (which the Nokia 1020 has twice that with 2GB) . Then there is the Galaxy s4 with 2x everything the Iphone5 has.

Retina HD? Retina makes the photo better? I get the distinct feeling you don't know what a retina display is... Am I mistaken?
