    "What are your favorite Windows Phone apps?" is a question I never get asked on the internet, mainly because people are too busy asking me what my daily drivers are, despite the fact that it's all there in my Twitter profile. But it's an important question. Because even though I feel that you shouldn't carry a particular device just because I carry it, the question of which apps and services we opt to use is another story. To step back to 2008 for a second: apps are magical things. As we discovered on a recent episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, almost all of us can remember ...

    Microsoft has been doing a great job in bringing Windows Phone 8.1 to its existing smartphone install base. This sadly only applies to unlocked models, as some carriers haven't pushed these updates to their devices as fast as we'd like. Still, the amount of changes in Windows Phone 8.1 is significant, and AT&T has just announced some love for its best Windows Phone yet. As of today the Nokia Lumia 1020 should receive its update for Windows Phone 8.1. This follows the updates that have reached other devices like the Nokia Lumia 925, Lumia 635, Lumia 1520, and Lumia 520. The update ...

    By the time you folks are reading this, I'm probably half-way to my destination at the Adriatic Sea. Taking a vacation for the first time in years was one of the most difficult decisions I had to recently take, but I'm leaving -- for a tad more than a week -- knowing that Pocketnow is in good hands with my dear colleagues I couldn't be more proud of. The Nokia Lumia 1020, with its camera grip case, is the main phone I'm packing, and you know why that is: pictures. I don't plan on taking a lot of pictures, but those that I do choose to take, I want them to be good, and the Lumia 1020 is my ...

    The last time we compared Samsung's zoom-enabled offering, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, with a PureView camera, it was the one on the Nokia 808 PureView. Many things have changed since then, and both manufacturers have improved on the already great shooters. Samsung has released the follow-up device, this time, named the Galaxy K Zoom, and Nokia managed to take its PureView camera to the next level (and platform), with the (by now renowned) Lumia 1020. We're still asking the same question like one year ago. Which one is best: physical lens doing optical zoom, or the PureView technology? That's ...

    Out of the many Windows Phones Nokia launched in 2013, the Lumia 1020 was easily one of the best. To this day, the 41MP shooter hasn't been overthrown as camera king, and it manages to remain smooth and fresh with a taste of Windows Phone 8.1... but it looks like Nokia Lumia 1020 End of Life status will soon be among us. To be clear, from what we understand, End of Life does not constitute end of support from Nokia -- it merely means that the company will no longer manufacture the phone, which would make sense if a successor were around by that time. We've already seen pictures of what ...

    As efforts like After The Buzz, the Pocketnow U-Review, and Empty Nest demonstrate, we’re constantly searching for fresh ways to review mobile technology. The newest product of those efforts is Pocketnow’s “Review Rebuttal” series, in which a member of our team is assigned to test a smartphone or tablet that’s already gone through our standard review process. While the resulting video or editorial doesn’t affect the “official” Pocketnow review score, we hope it provides added context by showcasing an editor’s personal opinion, rather than a team-wide consensus. We call it ...

    Nokia's Lumia 1020 is the smartphone camera heavyweight to beat. With its just-announced Galaxy S 5, Samsung upgrades its flagship from a 13MP to 16-megapixel camera, while throwing in a bunch of new shooting modes and some impressive abilities like a super-fast autofocus. Will that be enough for the GS5 to give the 1020 a run for its money? We put these two handsets head-to-head at the MWC in Barcelona this evening to find out. Then again, aside from their better-than-average cameras, these phones are in many ways apples and oranges, with different focuses placed on design, hardware ...

    "Wow. That Nokia XL is big." That's the first thought that hit my lobes when this hands-on comparison started playing on my monitor, but it certainly wasn't the last. Because while the 4.5-to-5-inch jump in screen size is one of the more instantly recognizable differences between Nokia's Windows Phone flagship and its new Android-powered phone for "the next billion," it's the least significant. Tune in to the side-by-side video below to see the Windows Phone-powered 1020 placed alongside the Nokia XL's tile-centric build of Android for a quick look at how the former has influenced the ...

    Samsung isn't the only company getting us pumped-up for its MWC event early next week, and as we finish trying to read meaning into all the imagery it threw at us in its own teaser video, we have a couple more companies generating interest for their own MWC events, with new teasers from Nokia and Sony arriving. Sony isn't expected to have new hardware that's quite as buzz-worthy as Nokia's or Samsung's, but there are at least a couple models we're looking forward to, including that second-gen Xperia Tablet Z. But you wouldn't be able to guess that from this teaser (above), as it's just ...

    Nokia's Lumia 1020 was easily one of the most impressive smartphones of 2013. Better yet, it's one of the more innovative handsets of the decade, with its 41-megapixel image sensor, paired with optical image stabilization. Its solid design and Nokia's reputation for quality didn't hurt matters either. However, CDMA users have been left mostly to feed on the Windows Phone scraps of late, and Nokia stepped up to the plate with yet another stellar entry, the Lumia Icon for Verizon Wireless. With specifications that rival even some of the most popular and powerful Android handsets, it's sure ...

    So, I’ve got good news and bad news for you. The good news is that I’ve eliminated one of the three phones I’ve been debating for my forthcoming new phone purchase: The Lumia 1020. I’m sorry, bring me your torch. The Tribe has spoken. “But Adam! You’re a Windows Phone fan! How can this be? I hate you you lousy son of a…” Trust me people, I get it. I really want a 41 megapixel camera. I do, I do. But it’s just not enough to fork over ~$400 just to upgrade one component of my phone. Here’s a little background. I am currently toting a yellow AT&T Lumia 920 as my daily ...
