Richard Trenholm was CNET's film and TV editor, covering the big screen, small screen and streaming. A member of the Film Critic's Circle, he's covered technology and culture from London's tech scene to Europe's refugee camps to the Sundance film festival.
That hefty price tag pitches the 1020 up against flagship phones from the major manufacturers: the HTC One, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5 are all on sale for around £500, but none have that monster camera. The 1020 also has 32GB of storage for your gigantic photos, with most of its rivals starting off at 16GB and charging extortionate amounts for more space.
The most camera-focused rival to the 1020 is the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, which boasts a 16-megapixel sensor. That may pale in comparison to the Lumia's 41-megapixel job, but it does feature a whopping 10x optical zoom.
