Should I ditch Android for Nokia's Lumia 1020?
Owning a big digital SLR is nice for getting some terrific photos. I have one, and I love it. But it's bulky and heavy. And I find myself leaving it at home more often than I feel like lugging it along in my daily life. I can only imagine how inclined I'll be to carry it around with me once I have a baby in tow.
I have a smaller point-and-shoot camera, but even carrying that around is not as convenient as just using my smartphone to take quick snapshots. My guess is that most people are like me. And that's why smartphones have definitely become the camera of choice for lots of parents I know. But as you point out, and as Nokia CEO Stephen Elop noted yesterday during the Lumia 1020 press conference, smartphone photography doesn't always produce the best images.
So what's a new parent to do? The Nokia Lumia 1020 is no doubt an impressive device with a camera sporting a 41-megapixel sensor. And it's definitely worth putting on your list to consider, if camera quality is at the top of your must-have list for a new smartphone. But I'm going to be honest with you, it's hard to say for certain how the device's camera stacks up against other smartphone cameras, since it hasn't been fully reviewed yet.
