For the technology press and consumers alike, this was one helluva week. From the release of Nokia’s sharp Lumia 1020 to an update to the best-selling Nexus 7 tablet and the debut of Chromecast, tech fans have a lot to love this week. As expected, we got our hands on and reviewed them all. Plus, we put a number of other long-awaited products through the ringer, like the Leap Motion Controller, Pebble Watch and Samsung ATIV Book 6 and more. We got around to testing out one sick gaming notebook, the Toshiba Qosmio X75, two Toshiba laptops (the Satellite L55t and Satellite S55t) and a Dell business rig, the Latitude E6540. Finally, read reviews of one awesome Samsung Galaxy S4 extended battery, the Mugen Power HLI-I9500XL, Nokia’s Lumia 925 (T-Mobile’s first LTE Windows Phone), the Sync Burn fitness watch and the Optimus F3 a new budget smartphone from LG on Sprint.
Make no mistake: Nokia is obsessively focused on the camera experience with the Lumia 1020. With its 41-MP sensor, this Windows Phone 8 device runs circles around the smartphone competition, both in terms of resolution and creative control. You can literally zoom in or out of a photo after it's been taken while retaining an astonishing level of detail. Available for $299 on AT&T, the Lumia 1020 is definitely a prosumer purchase, but is it worth $100 more than Android flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One?
