Monday was the end of an era. I said goodbye to iPhone and hello to Nokia (once more). I haven’t had a Nokia since the good old days of the 3310 and things have moved on somewhat since then. I have been a die hard iPhone girl from day 1. I completely got sucked into the apple world of hi 5’s, camping outside for a new release (OK I never did that), Apple snobbery and insanely shit battery power. It is due to the battery that I made the mahoosive decision to move away from my beloved iPhone 5 and on to the Nokia Lumia 1020. I’m not going to lie, I continuously had second thoughts through the whole upgrade procedure but now after a few days of adjusting, I’m 100% positive I made the right choice.
OK so lets talk about the nitty gritty details about the Nokia 2010…na not really, I’m not a phone geek but I will tell you a bit about the camera, which is to be fair the main reason why I went with this phone. Its a huge 41MP Carl Zeiss lens, which is already giving my DSLR (Nikon D7100) a run for it’s money! There are loads of cool effects and functions with the camera too, for all you DSLR users out there, it’s as easy as using your own camera; ISO, White Balance, Focus, Exposure, shutter speed…they’re all completely editable just like a DSLR! The f number can go as low as 2.2 which isn’t bad for a phone camera. I haven’t had time to sit down and play with it properly yet but I will post some shots to show you how it compares to my DSLR. There’s a range of special shots you can take with the smart-cam too; action shots, the perfect shot, remove unwanted objects, make a strobe effect to emphasize motion and much more! I’ll be talking more about the camera on the blog but if you want to check out all the specs then visit the Nokia website here.
The advice I would give any other bloggers or photography enthusiasts out there would be to seriously consider this phone, for the camera alone it’s totally worth it!
