You are right on that. Most people don't believe what the Pureview can offer.

Only a few people really know how to appreciates the technology and not just say... An iFoam/Shamsong Galaxy A** can do better without even comparing the photos taken.
i have to agree with you, people are quick to judge the cons, slow to see the pros, as someone who loves gadgets and appreciates technology, it seems people has totally forgotten about what the "on-the-go" experience is and the meaning of "the best camera is the one you have with you".

Nokia has offered a premium experience of the above 2 with this Pureview tech incorporated into this device.

I was telling my friend, it is not about the image quality. While most camera phones can deliver similar image quality, can they deliver shots which look bright when there is almost no traces of light?

The other friend of mine was commenting on one of my photos.. He was telling me. Wah, not bad. Your phone's White Balance reproduces the lighting condition very accurately. This is what iFoam and Shamsong phones pale in comparison assuming that you leave the settings as automatic.

People who don't need the 41MP camera and want a slimmer profile phone.
If 925 cost $700.. 1020 cost $700.. Which device will u invest in? We are talking maybe just a month apart for both device to be launched..

I don't mind buy both and decide few months later which one need to let go. Both have their own appealing factors.

A lot of smartphone users don't need a great camera. Even a so-so one will do. There's also a segment who don't even use the camera function.

Like it or not Having the best camera alone won't swing users to Nokia.

Consumer who are professional photographer or photography fans will appreciate the pure view camera and purchase it as a 2nd phone to cater to their camera needs. The 1020 is able to replace ur digital camera as well.

Now, it come down to marketing, words of mouth and also getting key apps to window phone 8. This is solely on microsoft and Nokia hand to execute it.

If 1020 need to sell.. Nokia have to pump impression into general consumer head and hypnotized and say come to elop come to elop..

If both are of the same price, the choice is clear... Lumia 1020 for sure.

I think that is provided that the Lumia 925 and 1020 is priced at the same price tier.

If there is a difference in price (say $100), I guess the Lumia 925 won't die that ugly when it hit us.

The way I look at it, Lumia 1020 is the new flagship. 925/928 are just variants of 920. Since they have sorted out their manufacturing/supply issues, it can be made cheaper.

Lumia 1020 has a new unproven lens assembly so they have to charge more to compensate for returns & repairs. At the same time, due to the "prestige" they can have a higher profit margin & sell less units.

Of course, we'd all like consumers to "get" the message that the 41mpix super large sensor takes pictures almost as good as a DSLR & picture quality is unmatched by other smartphones & Nokia can sell 10million units in 1Q.

Maybe Nokia should just advertise that the Lumia 1020 takes DSLR quality pictures & let the press have a field day reporting on Nokia's "fraud" again.

The Lumia 920 "fake" OIS debacle certainly bought a load of attention even though it was "negative" publicity. However, getting the word out is more important than what the message actually is.
