Nokia means durability in mobile phones and with the dawn of smart phones adapting to the selfie Pinoys addicted to camera phones, Nokia Philippines introduced Nokia Lumia 1020 with a whooping 41 megapixels and reinvented zoom last Tuesday at Ayala Museum. Who says you can't have it all in a smart phone? Now Nokia Lumia 1020 provides camera features similar to a DSLR with manual settings for better quality photos, second generation 41 megapixel sensor, six lens Carl Zeiss optics with optical image stabilization. Convenient smart phone for people who hates bulky and heavy DSLRs like me, I got so excited knowing that it's now out in the market at Php36, 650 with a free Camera Grip worth Php4K.
We were introduced to how Filipinos love taking pictures by Mr. Karel Holub and Gary Chan of Nokia Communications, Southeast Asia and given a demo how we can all be creative using minimal light to capture dramatic images using Nokia Lumia 1020. Using Windows Phone 8 operating system, more than a thousand photo editing apps are available for the user's convenience making every photo truly unforgettable and memorable at every occasion. The display is 4.5" AMOLED WXGA (1280 x 768), 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Pure Motion HD+, Clear Black, high brightness mode, sunlight readability, super sensitive touch and Nokia Glance Screen. Battery is at 2,000 mAh wireless charging supported via cover and processor of 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. The main camera is 41MP with optical image stabilization with resolution at 7712 x 5360, 6-lens Carl Zeiss optics, high resolution zoom at 3X, Xenon flash for still images, LED flash for video, 1080p 30fps video recording including Nokia Pro Camera and Nokia Smart Camera for easy photo editing. Front facing camera is 1.2 MP wide angle HD with memory of 2GB Ram, 32GB internal memory and 7GB free SkyDrive cloud storage. It does require sync-ing your smart phone when memory is eaten with so many photos so you'd have to always save it in your computer to get it working again.
What's beautiful is that their free Camera Grip also works as a charger making every opportunity to shoot more images possible. I really love that it has so many features and it has bearings in the camera area to provide crisp clear image when the user is in motion. The image stabilization capability is truly promising making me imagine how durability is world-class in Nokia as it had always been. No need to worry that you threw your phone to your boyfriend or husband on fights and it's still working and strong as usual because Nokia had been consistent in making their phones to last a lifetime. If the external storage memory is a problem, test the capabilities of a 32GB first and enjoy the beauty of cloud storage with SkyDrive available for all users of Nokia and all the other cloud storage to save images in a flash without having to use flash drives and memory card readers.
Nokia Lumia 1020 is a dream phone for the ladies who hates bringing bulky and heavy cameras in their bags and it will suffice the immediate need of the professional photographers whose cameras simply failed at some important moments.
