1

Two big guns – Apple and Samsung, have overpowered the smartphone industry. Nokia is no exception to this fact.

However, the Finnish Company has been trying ever since, to make a comeback in the smartphone arena. The Lumia series, released by Nokia is evidence of the hard work put in by the Finnish Company. The smartphones from the Lumia series sports notable camera specs. The 20MP camera of the Lumia 1520 and the 41MP camera of the Lumia 1020 can be described in a single word – splendid. Both these smartphones offer futuristic camera phones.

Let us keep their cameras aside and determine how they fare against each other in terms of performance and features.

Nokia Lumia 1020

Let us take the Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone first. The Lumia 1020 was the first smartphone that came equipped with a massive 20MP camera. It gathered great appreciation with the masses and they were enthusiastic to place their hands on a smartphone that offered a digital camera feeling.

Performance: In terms of performance, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is a powerhouse. Under the hood, the smartphone encompasses a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad core processor, running at a speed of 2.26GHz, which is impressively quick. The smartphone runs on Windows 8 operating system. The powerful processor along with super operating system offers smooth performance to the user. The super fast chipset is coupled with a RAM of 2GB and an Adreno 330 graphic processor to boost its performance. All these specs add up to provide the user with a powerful performance. It would not be wrong to suggest that the potential user would be in for a treat, owning the Nokia Lumia 1020 smartphone.

Overall, the Nokia Lumia 1020, equipped with a Windows Phone 8 user interface, offers a slow loading time in comparison to the iOS and the Android operating systems. However, once you have loaded everything, you would be surprised to see the quick performance offered by its powerful processor and other essential components. It might have disappointed certain critics, but the processor is powerful to take on its 20MP camera and the Windows Phone 8 operating system.

Nokia Lumia 1520

The massive 41MP camera offered by the Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone is a treat to have. The smartphone comes with a most elite camera ever placed on a smartphone. It is often referred to as a camera that comes equipped with features of a smartphone. Regardless, it is entirely the opposite. Let us peek under the hood of the Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone to determine its performance.

Performance: Looking under the hood would be disappointing for certain users.

In case, you were wondering whether the Lumia 1520’s camera would perform well in the future, you should consider how obsolete the hardware of the smartphone is. The camera is dependent on how well the hardware fares in daily usage. The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus dual core processor, running at a speed of 1.5GHz, powers the Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone. The processor is coupled with a RAM of 2GB along with an Adreno 225 graphic processor. The processor is disappointing for sure. The Lumia 1520 carries a massive 41MP camera; it should have a processor that would carry the massive snapper into the future.

However, keeping aside the spec sheet, the smartphone is responsive and snappy when it comes to browsing through the smartphones user interface. Regardless, one should not expect too much out of the Lumia 1520 smartphone when performing arduous tasks. It does not offer a smooth performance as that of the Lumia 1020 smartphone. Its dual core processor is a disappointment. However, when performing basic tasks, the smartphone proves to be an impressive device. The Lumia 1520 would be termed a future-proof smartphone, until you peek under the hood.
