I currently have an iPhone 5 and am planning to buy a 5S in the next couple of months. But over the weekend, I stumbled upon the link in GSMArena showcasing the camera comparison between the current flagship smartphones of the top manufacturers:
- iPhone 5S
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- Sony Xperia Z1
- LG G2
- HTC One
- Nokia Lumia 1020
On paper, there’s no doubt that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is second to none. It sports a 41-megapixel camera and the manual settings of a DSLR/point-and-shoot camera. I’ve also checked out some sites posting amazing photography using the Lumia 1020 and I am sold! I immediately contacted one of the online stores to inquire and they are offering me a low price of $590.90 bundled with a Camera Grip.
But this morning, I’ve seen some posts in Google+ sharing @evleaks’ tweet about Nokia’s new devices. I’m worried that Nokia might update the Lumia 1020 in just a few months.
I know the phone is amazing and has its rights to be called and the “best camera phone” in the world to date. I can actually deal with the current specs. I’m just concerned with the slow transition from shoot-save-shoot which might be addressed by the successor. If Nokia could only guarantee that it will update the firmware/camera software then I wouldn’t be having second thoughts in buying now.
What are your thoughts?
