|DISPLAY Nokia Lumia 1020|
|Display Type||OLED display|
|Screen Size (Display Size)||4.5"||Worse than 57 % of phones rated.|
|Screen Resolution (Display Resolution)||1280 x 768 pixels||Better than 65 % of phones rated.|

The screen size reaches 4.5" inches. Phones with smaller displays have the advantage of being easier to use with one hand. However, compared to phones with large screens, they provide a lower user experience. Nevertheless, if you don't plan to watch movies or play games on your phone regularly and just expect basic functionality, this size should be good enough for you. Owing to OLED technology, the display offers a true representation of colours, especially black. The resulting contrast is significantly higher and colours appear more vivid. OLED technology is now part of most smartphones, while LCD displays are becoming a thing of the past in mobile phones. OLED displays also have lower power consumption compared to LCD technology.
Display Resolution of Nokia Lumia 1020 is 1280 x 768 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px. Another important factor having impact on the final image is display´s pixel density. In case of this model, the value reaches 334 ppi. With pixel density, the higher the value, the sharper the image will be. On average today, the image fineness value is around 350-400 ppi. This will guarantee a sufficiently fine and sharp image for normal use. However, the best phones on the market today are equipped with pixel density of 450 ppi or higher.
|PROCESSOR Nokia Lumia 1020|
|Processor Type (CPU)||Qualcomm Snapdragon S4|
|Clock Speed||1.5 GHz||Better than 56 % of phones rated.|
|Processor Core Qty||Dual-core||Worse than 89 % of phones rated.|
|Graphics System (GPU)||Qualcomm ADRENO 225|
Nokia Lumia 1020 is supplied with Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. The number of processor cores is 2. It is a number of cores that plays an important role in evaluating the performance of phone as it is responsible for computing operations. Smartphones already commonly have a core count of around 4 to 8. Multi-core processors can perform better and reduce the processing time of a request to a minimum, which is reflected in the responsiveness of the phone, e.g. in the speed of opening applications. Another important parameter is the processor frequency, which indicates how many instructions the phone can process in one second. Similar to refresh rate, the higher the number, the faster the phone responds. Processor frequency of phone Nokia Lumia 1020 is 1.5 GHz. As standard today, you'll find this value between 1.8 GHz and 2.8 GHz.
The processor also includes the graphics accelerator Qualcomm ADRENO 225.
|MEMORY Nokia Lumia 1020|
|RAM||2 GB||Better than 57 % of phones rated.|
|Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity)||32 GB||Better than 65 % of phones rated.|
One of the most important parameters for user´s decision is often internal memory capacity. The larger it is, the more apps, photos, movies and other files your phone can store. This phone has 32 GB storage. This memory capacity is ideal for those who have a few basic apps and a few dozen photos on their phone. If you don't expect to use your phone to play games or need to store high-resolution photos, this size should be sufficient. There is almost no probability you're likely to see this low capacity on new smartphones. The standard memory today is around 64 and 128 GB. The best phones have internal memory of 256 GB or more. Nowadays, you can usually find one phone model on the market with several different memory sizes. This allows each user to choose what suits them best.
Size of the RAM memory tells us how powerful the phone is. Nokia Lumia 1020 is equipped with 2 GB. Commonly today you will find phones with 6 to 8 GB of RAM. This means that the phone can easily handle normal operation and more demanding applications or games. Higher RAM of 12 GB can be found in best phones on market and are ideal especially for avid gamers. On the other hand, operating memory below 4 GB is more of an issue with lower-end phones and older models. However, even they will find their fans among less demanding users, who don´t want to spend much on buying new phone.

|Number of Front Cameras||0|
The rear camera of the Nokia Lumia 1020 has only one lens. Single lens is more typical for older phones or lower-end phones with lower quality cameras. The rear cameras of modern phones nowadays are usually equipped with two, three and sometimes even five rear camera lenses. The resolution of main lens is 41 Megapixel. Nonetheless, resolution alone does not necessarily mean a good photo. Therefore, you should look at other parameters such as lens aperture or pixel size. Another important factor is the aperture, which in this case is F/2.2 and determines how much light passes through the sensor. Best phones have an aperture of up to F/1.5. But the most common lenses today are F/1.8 to F/2.2. In this case, the lower the number after the slash, the higher the photo quality.
Digital zoom in this case offers zooming up to 6x. Of course, the higher the lens value, the more distant object can be zoomed in. Nonetheless, the disadvantage of digital zoom is that the quality and sharpness of photo deteriorates when using it. An undeniable advantage is the optical image stabilisation, which makes image significantly more stable without any loss in quality. Cheaper phone models are equipped with electronic stabilisation, which has a negative effect on the resulting image quality.
