Nokia is on a roll.

The market is filled with so many options when it comes to cell phones and smartphones but this Finnish tech company gives you so many reasons to choose them over the others, especially with the Nokia Lumia 1020.

Most consumers who are in the market for a cell phone often choose a model that is able to take high quality pictures.

41 MP Camera Sensor

One of Nokia’s claims when they launched the Lumia 1020 is the addition of ball bearings to the primary camera. The ball bearings are the reason why a smartphone is able to capture exceptional low-light images and smoother videos.
The Power of Dual Capture: One Camera, Two Images
Aside from jaw-dropping images, the 41 MP primary camera of the Nokia Lumia 1020 also enables users to shoot not just one, but two photos simultaneously. The first image is actually the full resolution image which can be stored in your device. On the other hand, the second image is a 5 MP image which can be easily shared on social networking sites.
Aside from the many incredible apps you can install on your Lumia 1020, would you believe that you can also manage your PBX system using this phone? It does not stop there. Since we have already established the fact that mobile phone users have strong affinity for taking photos, it does not come as a surprise that most of them like editing photos as well. The Nokia Lumia 1020 permits users to edit the photos they have captured with the aid of advanced editing software and tools. Re-framing and re-zooming images is very easy with this smartphone.
Equipped with a high power next-gen Xenon flash that is able to light up an image at 1/16000th of a second which actually the fastest shutter speed option, Xenon Flash has been proven to be one of the Nokia Lumia 1020’s edge. It is instrumental in allowing users to capture extraordinary images.
Music and Apps
iPhones and most Samsung phones are called smartphones. Nokia took it to another level when they dubbed the Nokia Lumia 1020 a super smartphone. Most industry experts certainly did not expect this to come from Nokia, to be honest. As mentioned earlier, Nokia never stopped producing mobile devices but when it comes to smartphones, it has always been just between Android and Apple. So imagine the people’s surprise when Nokia released their very own super smartphone. Through the app store, users of this super smartphone gain access to a plethora of apps, songs, and games that can be easily downloaded.
