Forum Added for the Nokia Lumia 1020

Have you ever wanted a little bit more resolving power from your cell phone’s camera? We’ve just added a forum for a device that gives you more than than your fill of megapixels. Of course, I’m talking about the Nokia Lumia 1020.

Devices in Nokia’s Lumia lineup have traditionally offered excellent camera image quality in their respective categories. But with the Lumia 1020, nearly all stops were pulled to give the device an incredible 41 megapixels of resolution. This includes adding a 1/1.5″ sensor that is slightly larger than the majority of point and shoot cameras in circulation, albeit only a paltry fraction of the size of even consumer-level M43 and APS-C cameras.

The “smartphone” internals of the Lumia 1020 are similar to most modern mid-level devices. The Windows Phone 8-powered device features a 720p AMOLED screen backed by a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and LTE connectivity.

What are your thoughts on the 1020? Is its 10.4 mm profile going to earn itself a seat in your pocket? Do you think 41 MP is excessive for such a small sensor and lens? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to head over to the newly created forum to get in on the discussion!

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
