The Nokia Lumia 1020 is one of the best windows 8 Smartphone in the Kenyan Smartphone Market. The Lumia 1020 is a global crowd favorite and it in fact made to the April 2014 Business Insider list of the best Smartphones on the planet.
Here us a quick review of the Nokia Lumia 1020 and price in Kenya.
Dimensions: 130.4 x 71.4 x 10.4 mm
Weight: 158 g
The Nokia Lumia 1020 appears svelte compared to the chunky Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom. The Lumia 1020 is a niche device that prioritizes camera size to everything else. The bulge on the rear side of the Nokia Lumia 1020 is just a small price to pay for a larger than life camera experience.
Screen Size: 4.5 inches
Screen Resolution: 768 x 1280 pixels
Display Technology: AMOLED
Screen Resolution Density: 332 ppi
Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 3
You can never go wrong with an Amoled display. The display was an important aspect as you would need to gaze at the stunning images that the Nokia Lumia snapper captures. The screen vibrancy is amazing and outdoor visibility is satisfactory.
However, it would have been awesome if the Lumia 1020 has a 1080p Full HD display similar to the one found on the Lumia 1350.
CPU: Dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait
RAM: 2 GB
GPU: PowerVR SGX 544MP3
Operating System: Microsoft Windows Phone 8
One of the greatest things about the Windows 8 OS is that it runs flawlessly on low end and high end hardware. The Dual Core CPU plus a Solid 2GB of RAM is just what the Lumia 1020 needs to put up a great performance.
Internal Memory: 32GB
Card Slot: No
32GB of internal memory is a rather obvious tech specification. The huge internal memory will come in handy in the storage of the high resolution images captured by the Lumia 1920.
Rear Camera: 41 MP
Front Facing Camera: 1.2 MP
The 41 MP camera sensor is the highlight of the Nokia Lumia 1020. Nokia had to sacrifice a lot in terms of design to fix the snapper on the Nokia Lumia 1020.
The 41 MP snapper was worth it all. The camera is the largest ever found on a Smartphone to date. The Lumia 1020 is the perfect companion of avid photographers.
The Lumia 1020 captures DSLR grade images while at the same time can still fit in your pockets. Here are examples of actual images captured by the Nokia Lumia 1020.

The Camera is one of the notorious battery draining villains in Smartphones. Battery drain by the huge 41 MP Camera is, therefore, something that could be a massive issue.
The Lumia 1020, however, handles this issue sufficiently and can easily deliver 24 hours on moderate usage and about 14 hours of heavy usage (Image capture and manual adjustments).
