Nokia Lumia 1020

I am a huge fan of the Nokia Lumia family. Truly, the Nokia Lumia 920 changed my life (I’ll tell you about that below). Being such a 920 devotee, I was reluctant to try anything new…yet the pro camera of the Nokia Lumia 1020 captivated me…ever fall in love with a phone? ;-)

I love that the Nokia Lumia family of smartphones are based on the Windows platform. You might remember my post on  Windows Phone and Windows Tiles  where I went over how EASY this platform is to use and customize as you need. It’s a simple drag, place, and drop method to get all the apps you need (and love) in the places on the main screen which work best for you. Up front and centre on my phone is the Kid’s Corner (read my: How to Use Kid’s Corner post) whereby this one app locks my phone and allows my toddler to only play in this one corner. It’s great because it keeps him off my emails, twitter, internet, contacts, and pictures (ever had your toddler text your boss?). In the Kid’s Corner are all the games and videos I have chosen for him to play. It is a great feature.

So I mentioned how my Nokia Lumia 920 changed my life. It did. While I was writing my book “Boredom Busters“,  I used the 920 to take pictures of all the activities, I used the photo editing to make collages, saved them to Skydrive (the cloud), and then emailed them to my editor. I used the social media and email apps to stay connected. I used the calendar and One Note to stay organized. I used the Kid’s Corner to keep my toddler busy while I was writing. I used the phone for conference calls. Without the multi-functional features of this phone I would not have been able to write my book as I did. It kept work and life going!

The Nokia Lumia 1020 has all the same great features which I depend upon. But what makes this generation of Nokia different is the Nokia Pro Camera.

Nokia Pro Camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020 lets you shoot in super high resolution, which means you can zoom in close to your shot after you’ve taken it. Then rotate, reframe, crop and share new images as many times as you want.

Just look at the detail and clarity of these pictures taken on the Nokia Lumia 1020…

If Nokia ever started an ambassador program – I would be the first won in line to sign up. I cannot say enough good about the quality of the Nokia Lumia family.

What are your must-have phone features?

Disclosure: #spon. And I shamelessly recommend and truly love the Nokia Lumia. As always, the opinions on this post are my own. 


  1. I love this phone. I sure hope Santa is listening up! I use Win 8 touch on the Lenovo Yoga so I think this would be an easier transition to a smartphone for me since I love the tiles. I’m blown away by that camera – and your photos are so crisp & clear. Thanks for great review – you’ve given me more fuel for for the fire. :) Happy holidays.

  2. I have been looking at phones and after reading your stellar review it has made my short list thanks for the honest review and input

    Looks like it takes great pictures for a phone. I am hoping to get a new one within the next year so I will have to remember to take a closer look at this one. Thanks for the review!
