Photography, amateur or not, this is your Ambrosia. (Make sure it's not Windows 10, or read review to roll it back!)

Third one, was perfect. HOWEVER, if your like me and love this b/c of the 42MP camera and all the functionality, make sure it's not upgraded to Windows 10. Mine was when I ordered, took me a while to figure out how to fix it as resetting your phone, only erases the content and leaves the last operating system. YOU CAN however search for Windows Device Recovery Tool and choose the only option (even though it says it's up to date with the current firmware) and let it reset it back to Windows 8. 10 REMOVES a TON of lumia apps, INCLUDING the Lumia Camera App, and the Microsoft camera, even though it gives all the same manual options, will override your selections somehow b/c it apparently thinks your wanting the perfect plain picture. I use this ONLY for outdoor photography, especially sunrises/lake photos, and giving my photos low light, increased light, less noise (ISO), etc. is a MUST for me. If you don't care about manually changing settings for your camera, then honestly I have no idea why you would want this phone! I've added a few photos I've taken with my 1020's (I've went through 3, this "phone" is Gods gift to photography!).
