Last week, Nokia launched its Lumia 1020 in India and the company has now priced the device at Rs. 49,990 for the Indian market. The device has been lauded for its exceptional imaging performance owing to its stellar 41MP Pure View camera, which also happens to be its main selling point. Given its price tag, this happens to be one of the most expensive Lumia phones that Finnish phone maker has launched in India.
Rip the packaging open you'll be served with your standard fare these days for smartphones. There's a Micro-USB, in-earphones, a wall charger, paperwork and a slim pin to eject the micro-USB tray out from the phone. We liked the earphones, coupled with the phone, they provided a nice audio experience. There's even some documentation that's been made for the Lumia 1020's imaging system and wholesome manual that covers more intricate details on usage of the phone.
Run through the slider below for those. Gizbot has documented its first hands-on experience with the device to give you an idea of what it feels like.
Our simple observation in the end was that the Lumia 1020 is nothing but a Lumia 920 with an epic camera, better buttons, Gorilla Glass 3 and a few other features.
Upon first touch, the phone feels solid. Its slightly, but since the weight has been distributed evenly through out the device, it allows the device to seem solid. The matte finish on the rear and the sides makes holding the phone a smooth and somewhat sensual experience. The phones comes in three color variants, yellow, black and white. The unit sent to Gizbot was white in color.
