Best Smartphones 2013 – Nokia Lumia 1020
This question doesn’t get asked often enough for Microsoft’s (MSFT) liking, but what is the best Windows phone? Well, the answer also happens to boast the best smartphone camera: Nokia’s (NOK) Lumia 1020.
Windows Phones never looked better than on Nokia’s flagship smartphone. With a 4.5-inch AMOLED display at 720p resolution (332 PPI) and a dual-core Snapdragon processor, this phone may not look as powerful as Android smartphones. But the Windows Phone 8 has tiles that are bright and snappy, while performance is nothing to complain about.
Besides, performance is secondary in the Nokia Lumia 1020. It’s the 41 MP camera and Xenon flash — combining for professional grade digital photos — that land this model among the best smartphones 2013 shoppers have to choose from.
You can expect to pay between $600 and $650 for an unlocked Nokia Lumia 1020.
