Lumia 1020 feedback?

Just wondering whether any one here has experience with Lumia 1020 or have heard feedback? I seem to be in Nokia country here in Ruwi Muscat, Oman (probably should qualify that with Nokia product dumping country) now whereas in the UAE it's Samsung (product dumping). Tonight was able to check out Nokia Lumia - all of the Models from 520 to 1020. Any one got experience with Nokia Lumia? Thinking about it afterwards, just wondering whether I really need such a powerful camera. I'm quite happy with my pocket Canon Powershot 2400A 16 Mega Pixels and 5X optical zoom. So one of those 20 or 40$ Nokia light cameras would be OK just for phone and texting. But on the other hand, would be cool to be able to edit my photos immediately after I've taken them. Crop them and send them by phone or e-mail. And save them to a free Skydrive account. AND I'd be able to try Tapatalk out and see Gigalicous on a phone.The Nokia Lumia 1020 has 41 megapixels. I LOVE zoom. Always surprises me when I check my photos I've taken with Canon after I've taken them and see details I couldn't have seen with my naked eye.

Another cool piece of equipment I saw was a battery power disk. For recharging the phone battery in between. I guess with that kind of camera the Lumia 1020 would have to be charged a few times in a day to deal with the 41 megapixels photography?

OK there's a sequel to this. Ended up with a very interesting tech shop in Ruwi. It provides internet services, being able to put together systems for every need. So I went in there to find out how Internet and mobile phones work in Oman, and got some good answers. I also asked the tech what he thought of the Nokia Lumia, so learned it's Windows based, and that Windows is a pain. I didn't know that, I thought it was an Adroid phone. I haven't completely thrown it out, since 41 mega pixels are quite attractive together with all the bells and whistles that come with its photo focus. I'd like to research it a bit more carefully first.

use a cheap smartphone for your phone apps (try Moto G) and use a sony/canon/nikon digital camera with wifi or bluetooth transfer that can sync with your phone/tablet... now you can even edit with your ipad/tablet...

I'm an Apple man. Can't understand when there are Apple products and iPhone, that any one would be interested in anything else.

Can't agree more. I like my iphone and my MacPro. They're a team. Can't ask for anything more simple, logical and efficient than that.

The only good thing about this phone is its camera, but you hardly use the 41mp camera for regular pictures right? because of its large file size taking up all your valuable disk space. On the other hand the apps in windows app store are far less and above all it does not supports google applications.

I personally had he Nokia Lumia 900. I think that the 900 was a prototype to see what direction the consumers wanted. I loved the phone and it gave a good insight of how OS 8 will feel like. Personally I recommend it as the fact that its UI is sleek, simple, and straight forward. The only thing in my opinion that might turn you away from it, is that the Windows Market is not as big as Apples AppStore and Androids Play Store. This doesn't really make as much sense to me, because developing app for a windows phone is similar to making a Website with a crap ton of javascript on steroids. Well that's my insight... :)
