There is an incredible giveaway at the bottom of the post, but first, a candid review.

It’s no secret that I love Windows phones. My husband has a different smartphone than I do, and I 100% prefer mine over his. 😉 I had the chance to review a Nokia Windows phone last year, and after one week of using it, I was sold. I am now through and through loyal to the Nokia Windows phone.  Why, you may ask? I am obsessed with the live tiles on my front screen that change as all my social media channels update into one little tile–pictures of loved ones being uploaded from all over the world, status updates, and more! All I have to do is glance down at my phone. No running to five different social media platforms to check my feed. It’s incredible. I have a live tile for my husband, a group tile for all of my family, and another for friends. I could go on and on about this little feature, but basically, it’s awesome. Definitely the most social-friendly phone I have ever seen.

In the past, one of my biggest issues with other smartphones is that they just don’t produce the quality of pictures I want. I would literally haul around my bulky pro camera in my purse, just so I wouldn’t miss a special moment. It wasn’t exactly convenient. My love for Windows phones just got deeper, because they just released the 41 megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020. I was sent a Lumia 1020 to put to the test.

So is it a camera, or is it a smartphone?  It does both so beautifully that it really doesn’t favor one over the other.

So, let’s see this camera in action. I was blown away the first time I snapped a picture. I took the Nokia Lumia 1020 to New York City with me this last week and snapped a few pictures at an event I was attending. Yes, these were taken with a phone!!!

      When don't I have a failed photo moment. It usually involves the camera taking too long to respond...only to have my 1 & 4 year old crawling away & screaming. because I'm taking too long.

      I feel I fail at capturing many of the moments with my kids. Trying to photograph how soft a baby's cheek is or how fluffy a toddler's bedhead is seems extremely difficult. Maybe a better camera would make a difference. :)

      My failed photo moment - my little 2 year old crawling up onto the recliner in his room, turning on the lamp, picking up his books and starting to read them. He even had memorized a bunch of the words to each book, and all I got was a tiny grainy video!

      One failed moment that would be hard to recreate is when our second daughter was born.. My hubby was en route from Iraq ( he ended up missing the birth by 18 hours.. ) .. He wasn't there to take the great pics.. I had my Mom with me, but she wasn't a great pic taker.. lol..

      My oldest daughter was leaving on her mission. We ran out the door because we wanted to share one last lunch together before she left.We were in such a rush, the camera was left behind. The last day I was to see my daughter for 18 months was my biggest photo fail, because I had no ability to take a photo.

      Stacy says:
      My failed photo moment was my engagement. The person that was supposed to take the pictures was too overcome by emotions. So their friend pulled out there cell phone to try to capture something. It was all grainy. I still got the best guy out of it & that's what counts.

      I am a photographer and so like the cobbler's kids, who have no shoes, my kids have no pictures. Not any really great ones at least. All of their pictures are taken with my phone and so they are grainy, or blurry, or too dark. This camera/smart phone would make up for my motherly downfalls. I need it!!

      Well my failed moments are to old to revisit and do over. I would love to look forward to photographing new things. It would be very handy to have that little gem of a gadget on me all the time to catch whatever happens. My current camera phone is so bad I refuse to do selfies with it and don't have any pics of myself to post online and I really need some. Plus pics of my garden, baking etc. when I tell people things and wish I could show them. A redo of gardening next summer would be awesome. I guess I do have my one tiny selfie taken by my equally bad webcam that could also qualify for a redo.

      Well my main camera battery died on my us on our last day at Disneyland, the day we were finally able to see my little 3 year-olds favorite princess Cinderella, she was all dressed up to see her and so excited. I had left my phone with my mom and our sleeping 6 month old and 5 year old who didn't think seeing a princess was that great of an idea. So he had the phone to play with while waiting. Which meant no camera for us as it died right before we got to Cinderella. Hubby left it on while we were walking a few too many times. :) And that is our failed moment. Someday we hope to make it back and visit cinderella with a working camera.

      Ooops! My failed photo moment----I have missed many when I did not have my good camera with me! My phone camera is okay sometimes, but not great at other times. I am taking a lot of photos of my students and I am always messing up their active moments because my camera phone does not snap the pictures fast enough. :-(

      I knew that eventually someone would put out a phone to make carrying a camera a thing of the past. I always have my camera in my purse because, like you said, there are moments I don't trust my phone camera to capture. I have 3 little ones and the phone can't keep up with them.

      My failed photo opp was my wedding. We were trying to save money where we could, and a family friend said that she was a photographer and would happy to take our photos for free! Yay, right? Nope, not so much. We ended up with a bunch of drugstore printed snapshots (no negatives) most of which were too dark to make out the people in the pictures. Heartbreaking. The biggest day of my life, and no photo record.

      We took family pictures about a month after my second son was born. Unfortunately, son #1 was still upset about his world being turned upside down and refused to smile. Most of the pictures are of him with his arms folded and bottom lip out. We'll keep them around for blackmail later. :)

      Just 2 weeks ago we were at the beach when a logger head se turtle nest hatched. All my life I have wanted to see this miracle and now I could see I with my children and share it with my the beautiful little babies crawled out of the nest and then crawled towards the ocean we were informed to remain perfectly still. They flapped there tiny flippers right passed me and washed back and forth into the ocean and crawled over my sons foot. We remained still as I took pictures with the only thing I phone. It was slow, but I knew if I got just a few of this miracle I would be happy. They washed back one final time, as I took more pictures, and swam into the ocean. We all stood still for awhile just to make sure they all were safe and to just catch our breath. So joyful to share my pictures with my school class and family I viewed my pictures only to be so disappointed at the blured images . Even the ones were the turtles were almost still on the sand. :( I was so sad, because It would have been wonderful to have even just one picture of a sweet baby sea turtle! :(. Epic fail!!!!!!

      Puddin Twain says:
      Most people hate the camera at the DMV, but I love it. Because it's the only camera that my photos always ALWAYS look good with. I've been pulled over before because the officer that saw my license photo when they ran my tag just had to see me in person. So to say that I'm usually disappointed with other pics of me is an understatement. Most times, the photo is blurry because the camera is too shake sensitive, or I've got a funny look on my face because the camera isn't easy to operate. Even better, just a couple weeks ago, my last camera phone took a dip when I was wading and an undertow caught my ankles. So THIS would be an awesome win.

      Tons of pics throughout the day, My husband is a Police Officer working looooong hours. I like to send him pics from the day so he can feel like he's a part of whatever the family is doing. If I can get my phone to take a decent picture it is usually still blurry/grainy which in turn makes me take lots of pics until I find one that will pass. I would love a decent camera on my phone.....I'm sure my husband would appreciate it too. :)

      Brittany Bentley says:
      I feel like that "failed" photo is constantly happening, not one specific time. Every time I think I'm taking a great photo of of my daughter it is either out of focus or it wasn't fast enough to catch the moment on time. My husband is totally OCD perfectionist so he goes through my phone and deletes most of them! It usually takes like 20 tries to get a photo that looks just right, and about that time we are really forcing a smile out of her. This phone/camera looks AWESOME!

      Tabetha Moore says:
      My failed photo moment was my wedding. The photographer we hired had his equipment stolen just hours before the ceremony. This was before camera phones and my guests were kind enough to stop by the convenience store on their way to the site and pick up disposable cameras. Not the best quality and since I didn't have a professional photographer, not the best pictures.

      Came to US when I was 16 without a word of English. - graduated from high School so it was a big deal. My father took 10, then 20, 40, and when he took another picture he thought to himself that is weird I only put a 36 pic film in the camera and his blood froze and he opened the camera and there was NO film in it!!! Now that is something we cannot redo but it is the story that we can tell now!

      Sorry - forgot to tell about a failed photo moment... Whenever I use my husbands DSLR I end up having the wrong settings, and I've missed so many cute moments. One of them was just a sweet cuddle between daddy & son... totally underexposed and out-of-focus because the settings had gotten changed and I didn't correct them. By the time I figured it out, the cute cuddle was gone & I missed it. Boo.
    145. October 14th, 2013 at 9:34 pm

      As far as failed moments go it's due to my camera's slow response time {or waiting for that darn flash to re-load or whatever it's doing} I have a 3 year old and a 2 month old and many quick-moving moments have gone by. I would love to capture their sweet smiles in a flash!

So I used my phone to take a picture of my sons meeting their brother for the first time. The pics came out grainy, shaky, and probably the most horrible quality ever. I think I try to take pics of them together all the time now to make up for that first meeting.

      :( and my youngest is CONSTANTLY moving and going since he's 2 and I seem to miss or blur all the really great moments. It's sad because I have great pics of my older girls but he's SO MUCH more active than they ever were. I'm hoping to win to try my hand at a new way to capture moments!

      The first picture of my husband and I as a married couple was taken with an old fashioned instant camera. While it wasn't a missed opportunity, when it rained later that day it ruined the photograph. So I'll never get that moment back.

      I have a ton of missed opportunities... my phone takes forever to take the pic and by the time it finally does... the moment is gone! Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

      I had a beautiful picture of my son petting a bird at the zoo, but I had just barely gotten my digital SLR and hadn't realized my memory card was full and a kid had moved into the shot that I didn't want, so I deleted the picture and hurried to take it again, only to have the bird fly away and I missed it!! Needless to say, I now check my memory card or have more than 1 in my bag!!

      K Crew says:
      I just finally got a smart phone earlier this year. I got a pretty basic one, because the price was right, and I thought any smart phone was better than the flip phone I'd been using for years. Well, I wish I had gotten one with a decent camera, because a short time later my camera broke and my daughter started walking for the first time. All I had was my [not very smart] smart phone and I couldn't get even a halfway decent picture. So the only picture I have of her walking is blurry and not even close to being clear. :( Those photos look amazing. I would seriously love this phone/camera. ;)

      Haha, so many times I think I've got the perfect shot and then I realize that my shutter didn't full open, or someone has somehow photobombed my picture... often, my own daughter...

      A missed photo? SO Many!! I have a two year old boy who loves his freedom. Capturing a moment these days you have to be quick. I try to use my camera on my current phone and I all I get is a blur. This would be amazing!!

      I had a moment back at the end of May to take photos with an older camera or phone of my daughter receiving her Young Women's Medallion. The photos taken of us with the water behind us were awful. My old Samsung Stratosphere phone snapped one or two photos. All the memories are captured in the two camera photos. I had purchased and completed 4 scrapbook pages for her and had only two photos to put on the pages.

      Many of the photos from my kids activities are blurry but a couple from a recent Cub Scout night even came out yellow and so blurred no one else would know what the picture is of. I'm ready to not just take another photo class but get a new camera, so I'll cross my fingers.

      My wedding photographer had her laptop stolen from her vehicle during my wedding reception. About one hour after she had downloaded my ceremony pictures to it so she had some free space to take pics at the wedding. Needless to say, I have very few ceremony pics from friends.

      I still want to cry when my husband determined he would take Kindergarten graduation pictures with my DSLR and didn't check ANY of them, or the settings as he was taken. Every one turned out blurry because I use it in manual focus to choose what to photograph and my shot.

      I have had so many "missed opportunities" when it comes to pictures. My phone is horrible with pictures, and sometimes that's all I have with me when I've forgotten the good camera. It would be so nice to have a phone with me all the time that takes great pictures!

      My son had his first preschool party the same week that my husband got his new smart phone. All of the pictures are half covered by a finger. The bump out for the lens on this phone looks like it could even work for him.

      Lisa Y. says:
      My biggest fail is every time I punch the button on the camera and it takes so long to actually take the picture (for whatever reason) that the moment is gone :( Usually an action shot or a face being made by the kiddos!

      diana.padilla says:
      Failed moment - how about EVERY time. My camera has so many options that tend to reset when I turn the darn thing off. Then the "must-capture" moment is either too frizzy, too dark or not focused well. Ugh. I lose more moments and hope to better days with an improved model - wink, wink.

      SK says:
      My husband planned a surprise wedding for me on a beach in Mexico at Sunrise with all of our close friends, the only thing he didn't plan for was a bad camera that did get a good picture of us, they are all blurry or dark so it didn't 'capture' the moment.

      When I was 10 our family went to Disneyland and I had my own camera that I had saved up to buy. I took almost a full roll of film (yep, back in the day!) and then somehow lost my camera. Took several trips to the lost and found the rest of the day and never got those photos back.

      WildRose Gypsy says:
      My cousin wanted to prove to her "city" friends that she knew how to ride a quad. So I stood here ready to take a picture with my camera (this was when I was 15...I am now 27.. so you can imagine my kick ass Camera!) as she drove by infont of me... The minute I seen her through the tiny little eye hole I clicked it.. As I looked up she was looking at me smiling.. not at where she was going. She jumped a small dirt rode, & bite through her lip..... 6 stitches later & 1 week (of waiting for the pictures to be developed) we got nothing but the back half of a speeding quad.. blurred... but it brings us nothing but laughs everytime we see it!

      Every time I forget my camera is a failed picture attempt. My phone, iPad nor iPod take good enough pictures. They're always grainy and horrible! With my point and shoot out of commission right now, it's hard for me to get decent pictures when I want them.

      I have the same issues with my cell phone camera- the quality just isn't there and with a new baby, lugging my DSLR around just isn't practical anymore. I also can't stand the lag in taking pictures with my phone. By the time the picture "clicks", I missed the moment! I would love to win this giveaway!

      My failed epic moment just happened not too long ago at my daughter's FIRST soccer game when she went to kick the ball into the goal and my camera took too long to focus and missed it! ugh....hate electronics that have a mind of their own! when I click the button, I just want it to take the picture!

      Back in the dark ages when I used a 35 mm camera, I would take the film in to be developed, and I would always end up paying for 25 close-ups of my finger. I still do it occasionally, but the beauty of digital is that I can delete it and start over!

      I don't have a failed photo moment that comes to mind, but I wish I'd known more about photography and had a better camera in my children's early years! What a difference a little knowledge and a great camera make!!!

      Most charming photobomb was one taken in a little cafe in Berkeley whilst showing off my newborn. Sitting directly behind me was the famous pediatrician, Dr. Terry Brazelton giving a thumbs up! That baby is now in college!

      My failed photo moment was when I was at a Trey Songz concert and I tried taking a picture of him because we were close to the stage and it came out totally blurry and looked liked he had a disfigured face.
