Review Nokia Lumia 720 Smartphone

 

The Lumia for everyone? The 720 slots neatly into the Lumia line of Windows Phone smartphones. The differences are not immediately apparent to the buyer when you consider the cheaper Lumias. We will evaluate this 4.3-inch device and whether it would be...

Good performance, Very bright display, Long battery runtimes, Expandable storage, Build quality, The performance is sufficient for multimedia applications and daily tasks - although it is quite boring that almost every Windows Phone 8 device uses the...

Low resolution, Price, Non-removable battery, Nokia could improve the black value as this would also help the contrast ratio. HD resolution would be appropriate for a retail price of 379 Euros

Nokia Lumia 720 Review

 

We've already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia's best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance,...

The Lumia 720 runs Windows Phone 8 (WP8) OS and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon chipset from Qualcomm. This is the same MSM7227 SoC used in the Lumia 620 and the Lumia 520. The RAM configuration also remains the same, which is 512MB. The...

Nokia Lumia 720 review

 

With the shared unveiling of Nokia's Lumia 720 and Lumia 520, the company's running flush of Windows Phone 8 models was complete. All WP8 handsets we've

Attractive design ; 2,000mAh battery ; Good low-light pics

Aging innards ; Relatively expensive

Nokia's Lumia 720 is a very desirable handset on the outside, but lackluster insides make it hard to justify the price.

Nokia's Lumia range is, depending on those you ask, either getting crowded or becoming more flexible, with the new Lumia 720 slotting in-between the 620 and the older 820. With its 4.3-inch screen adding up to a pocket-friendly size, the Lumia 720...

It’s a frustrating flaw in what could’ve been a fantastic device, though the strengths in camera and battery life still make it a solid choice in the midrange.

Nokia Lumia 720 review

 

Nokia's family of Windows Phone 8 handsets just continues to grow. The Finnish smartphone maker is pushing its Lumia devices into the low- and mid-range with devices like the Lumia 620 and 520, but a surprising entry in the form of the Lumia 720 makes...

Great design ; Thin and lightweight ; Good battery life ; Low-light camera performance

Daylight camera performance ; Only 512MB of RAM ; Low resolution display

Is this the perfect Lumia design?

Nokia Lumia 720 review: On target

 

Having covered the premium and the entry-level segment, Nokia is paying due attention to the midrange and hoping that it will pay off handsomely. The Lumia 720 was the leader of the company's lineup at this year's MWC and is arguably the company's best...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.3" 16M-color ClearBlack IPS LCD display of WVGA resolution ; 6.1 megapixel autofocus camera with super-fast F/1.9 lens and LED flash, 720p@30fps video...

A few prominent apps still missing, some apps incompatible due to 512MB RAM ; No system-wide file manager ; No lockscreen shortcuts ; Voice navigation is limited to only a single country

The Lumia 720 may be sitting in the middle of the Nokia WP8 lineup, but it has features that elevate it above the average midrange experience. Starting with the sensitive touchscreen that works with gloves (like the flagship 920), the screen also...

Nokia Lumia 720, Lumia 520, 301, 105 hands-on: First look

 

Nokia's event at the MWC pulled the curtain on two new Lumias and two new S40 phones. The Lumia 720 and 520 are playing for the Windows Phone team, while 301 and 105 are affordable handsets for emerging markets.

Announced at MWC 2013, which took place this February, the Nokia Lumia 720 seemed like a promising mid-range smartphone. Now that the handset has visited our office in all of its retail glory, we're eager to see if this Windows Phone junior can really...

Likeable design ; Great screen quality ; Good battery and speaker

WVGA resolution is outdated ; Windows Phone 8 is not particularly fun

We didn't see this one coming, but here it is - Nokia has come up with a wonderful mid-range smartphone. But don't imagine some kind of crippled experience when we say “mid-range.” The Lumia 720 is a very well-rounded smartphone with an appealing...

Review: Nokia Lumia 720

 

While I hold this Nokia Lumia 720, I can't help but recall all those years when I used Nokia as my main phone. My first was a Nokia 1610, a phone that is almost the size of the Nokia 9000 Communicator, followed by these models: 5110, 6210, 6310, 6510,...

Best battery life for a smartphone ; Camera performance is very good ; Solid hardware

512MB of RAM only ; Nokia Drive needs improvement with navigation

Despite of my wish for the phone to have a bigger RAM, I’m still very impressed with the Nokia Lumia 720. The SRP of Php 14,500 is quite affordable for its some of its high-end features too. So far, this is the only mid-range smartphone in the market I...

The Nokia Lumia 720 is an excellent Windows Phone handset that oozes quality and premium looks. In spite of a low-resolution display and underpowered hardware, it is a good buy.

Looks amazing, Premium build quality, Good camera, Fluid touch interface, Display has good viewing angles

Just 512MB of RAM, Low resolution display, App store compares unfavourably with iOS and Android
