Here is the technical specifications of the new Nokia Lumia 1020:

- 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ ClearBlack AMOLED display @ 1280×768 pixels, 332ppi
-Windows Phone 8
- 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
- Adreno 225 GPU
- 32GB built-in storage
- Gorilla Glass 3
- 3G, HSPA+, LTE
- 41MP f/2.2 1/1.2? PureView rear camera, Zeiss optics, Xenon flash
- 1.3MP wide-angle front-facing camera, 720p video
- Pro Camera (ISO, white balance, focus & shutter speed controls)
- Li-ion 2,000mAh, non-removable

I love this phone and I really wanted to have one, as of today this is my favorite Lumia phone that will definitely change until the Lumia 1520 is confirmed as it will be a first Lumia phablet with a monster 3,400mAh battery inside. That 41MP PureView camera, I think would be the best type of camera a smartphone can have nowadays, it's going to be a real steal here especially if you are into photography or just someone who wants to take photos of almost everything and does not like bringing a DSLR camera around your neck. But the asking price of Php35,650, to me is not attractive even though it comes with free Camera Grip.  

What about you guys? What do you think of this smartphone and the price tag? Is it reasonable to get this phone along with its offerings? Let us know in the comments below.
