n our two-part video review of Nokia’s best camera phone we shared with you guys our disappointment in the phone’s design, which put mildly was not that grip-friendly. This bothered the most during shooting with this otherwise great camera phone. If you are experiencing the same problem, Nokia has provided a great camera grip for the phone which transforms it into an ergonomic point and shoot. 

The phone easily slides inside until its micro USB port connects to the case port inside

The hard case perfectly houses the Lumia 1020. The phone easily slides inside until its micro USB port connects to the case port inside. Then on the opposite side the case embraces the handset. The whole back panel remains under the cover. The top edge provides a special shutter key that goes on top of the original one and leaves the other two volume keys exposed. The whole touchscreen display of course also remains open.

The nice matte finish of the whole case is really nice to the touch and super grip-friendly.

 The nicest thing about the case is its handgrip on the right side. Referring to the comfortable design of SLRs the handgrip provides great control even when shooting with one hand. It even has a rubberized strip on top to prevent the fingers from slipping.

What is probably this case’s biggest advantage which is also the reason why I would buy this case is its 1020mAh built-in battery. That’s right, using this camera grip case will increase the battery life on your Lumia 1020. You will get up to 290 shots more and up to 40 minutes of video on top of what your phone battery offers alone.

 This case is extremely useful if you like to use the full capabilities of this 41MP camera. If you like to achieve the impressive light effects of a long exposure you attach the regular camera on a tripod and set it for a long exposure. Although practically it’s accessory this case expands the variety of techniques you can use on this camera phone. The tripod socket on the bottom right side has a universal tripod mount and allows you to attach this case with the phone inside just like it’s a regular point-and-shoot camera.

The camera grip case is definitely not an every-day case for this phone, but if you often go out for photo shoots it is a great hit. Besides it gives your phone a nice dual-color appearance.

The camera grip case is available in three colors: black, white and vibrant yellow.
