Review: Nokia Lumia 720

Nokia seems to be taking business tips from Samsung, and it has introduced a handful of smartphones – each with a different price tag. The Lumia 720 device from Nokia is one among the line-up, which is similar to their previous Lumia 820 and 920 smartphones.

The handset sports a tough polycarbonate body that is much lighter than the similarly priced Lumia 820. The Lumia 920 has a 4.3-inch display with 480×800 pixels resolution and it comes with Nokia’s Clearblack technology and Corning Gorilla Glass.

The Lumia 720 is powered by a Qualcomm dual-core 1GHz processor and runs Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system. The device also packs Nokia’s own applications, such as Nokia Here and Nokia Music. It also includes Skype, Netflix, Spotify and the game TempleRun.

The handset sports a 6.1-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front  for video calling. The 2,000mAh battery on the Lumia 720 can last around 13 hours, even with 3G connectivity.

On the storage front, the Lumia 720 comes with 8GB storage space that can be expanded to 64GB via microSD.

Verdict

The Nokia Lumia 720 is a decent handset, but with an average screen. It’s worth the money you spend, though.
