The HTC One M8 may have its UltraPixel Dual camera, the LG G3 may boast laser autofocus and Samsung may be proud of its camera-centric Galaxy K Zoom, but the king of camera phones is only one – the great Nokia Lumia 1020 featuring an excellent 41-megapixel camera. Devices from other manufacturers may come with innovative technology, but so far none of them managed to beat Nokia in terms of pixel count. Great news is that the phone just got cheaper and now costs only $339.99 off contract.
Deal on Nokia Lumia 1020 for AT&T
The Nokia Lumia 1020 for AT&T at a discounted price of just $339.99 is up for grabs from Microsoft Store and Amazon. Until recently the unlocked device was on sale for over $500, so it’s a pretty generous price cut. There is also an option to buy the phone with a contract, in which case Microsoft Store will charge you $49 while Amazon will sell you the Lumia 1020 for a penny. Additionally, you can opt for monthly payments of $17 or $14.17 per month with AT&T Next 12 or 18, respectively.
Lumia 1020’s main selling point is its massive, 41-megapixel PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics with a 6-lens design, optical image stabilization and a bunch of cool shooting options. For comparison, most compact digital cameras offer sensors not even half this big. When it comes to other specs, the Lumia 1020 is a tad less exciting. That’s because it was release in July 2013 when hardware standards were somewhat different meaning that it’s a bit outdated.
The phone sports a 4.5-inch WXGA HD+ (1280 x 760) AMOLED display and is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor paired with 2GB of RAM. Other features include 32GB internal memory (unfortunately non-expandable), 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and a 2,000 mAh battery. The Lumia 1020 is available in black, white and yellow color options and comes with Windows Phone 8.1 on board.
If, besides making calls and sending texts, camera is the most important feature in a phone for you, then the Lumia 1020 at a cheaper price could be a great choice. However, keep in mind that the device is over a year old which means that a successor is or soon might be in the works.
