I rarely give reviews since it's quite tenuous considering that you need to give your insights about this and that but Nokia Lumia 720 is an exception. Coming from a BlackBerry 9360 - which I still use - Nokia Lumia 720 is a breathe of fresh air. Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed using my BlackBerry but aside from the small screen there's a lot to compare between the two. Let me kick my review in with the camera capabilities. Heck! We all know that Nokia is the king in mobile photography and this is not a secret. Nokia Lumia 720 is awesome in taking low light photos and it just blows me away. I never thought that this phone would be a decent counterpart of Nokia Lumia 920 in the middle range class. The phone is very sexy and it just gives me the feeling of being unique. We don't have a lot of Windows Phone users here in the Philippines and I get a lot of attention whenever I am using the phone in public. With that vibrant yellow unibody design? Everyone would just stare at you. Secondly, the interface is very attractive. I always find myself touching the screen just to see how the tiles would flip back and forth. There's this particular fluidity with regards to the interface compared to other platforms. With Microsoft's integration with Windows 8, Xbox, Office, Skydrive and lot more, not to mention Skype, everything fits the puzzle. Also, it is a not a secret that Nokia cut the screen quality to give this phone a very reasonable price but based on my experience, I never thought that...Build quality 10/10Reception 8/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

A Great Mid-range Device

720 is a great addition to the Lumia line-up from Nokia. It's having all the ingredients that essentially a device with such a price tag should have. It has a great camera, great battery, great uni body design, memory card expansion and it's so light (130 grams approx.).
It's can be called the younger sibling of Lumia 920 as it's having the similar kind of uni body design and the same battery.
I have clicked many snaps and shot a few videos and I'm totally impressed. Low light photography in the device is just awesome. Along with it, the videos shot in it gave unbelievable sound quality because of Nokia's HAAC mics included and the video quality is great for such a mid ranger.
The experience in WP8 is totally lovely. It might not be as customizable (BTW I really like the live tiles) or advanced as Android, but the OS is a joy to use. And I'm serious.
Considering its price the device is one of the best
Have been using this device for a month now and I'm loving it...Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

720 drive test

Camera is not that good. Its a bit noisy in pictures but good in taking videos.
Facebook apps are a bit delay in updating notifications.
There is an application trial so there's no need to worry.
There's no problem in watching videos as well
File management is easy if you will connect the phone to a PCBuild quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 9/10Battery 10/10
