Reviews Word on the street

Lumia 1020  vs One V 

Better yet, it excels with macro shots as well, seeing that its focus can hone in on one particular point in the shot – thus, producing a pleasing bokeh effect to the background.

Moreover, your average point-and-shoot camera has a bigger imaging sensor than the 1020, and likely better optics, so image quality, dynamic range and high ISO noise performance is better.
