Kinda curious how the camera is, and if Nokia finally fixed their issues with the 820's and 920's producing overly grainy and deteriorated photos.

I did, and absolutely love it. I came from an iPhone 5 and have no regrets leaving. 

 

I signed up for a 500px account the other day to start displaying some of my photos, you can check them out here

Thank you! I slightly modified the brightness/contrast in photoshop on some of the photos but most of them are from just shooting automatically. I am still learning how to use the settings with the camera.

If you're up for a new phone and care about taking pictures more than other things then the 1020 is the best smartphone for that job.  There's just no comparison out there on a phone, and I think many point and shoot cameras are also put to shame by it.  If AT&T and Nokia do well with marketing it in the US it should catch on, it just takes the right message to the right group and you should see solid sales.

 

Either way though, it doesn't have to sell in massive numbers like the 520, because of the difference in price and margins between the two, but if they can sell 1million at least I'd say that'd be a success.

I am still on the fence about upgrading from my 920. Gdr3 comes out at the end of the year which allows 1080p screens and quad core processors. do I get the 1020 now or wait for a quadcore  1080p version later.

You should familiarize yourself with real photography then. It's incredibly obviously clear they aren't anywhere near DSLR quality. They look about like I expected. Mostly overhyped. In good lighting they do look good, but in most shots they don't look much different than most other camera phone pictures to me. The macro shots look pretty good though.

It depends on how the pics were posted. if they were posted from the phone then they were downscaled. WP8 tends to downscale the pics if posted from the phone itself.

That doesn't really have much effect on the lighting and color reproduction though. You can see most of the shots that don't have perfect lighting have that familiar camera phone washed out contrast look.
