Call Quality

Nokia Lumia 620 vs Nokia Lumia 720
Nokia has long enjoyed the honor of providing top notch call quality, but that’s not exactly the case here. When we tested the Nokia Lumia 720, our callers easily recognized our voice and heard us loud and clear, but on our end of the line their voices sounded a bit dry and hissy.

Testing the call quality of the Lumia 620 right after the Lumia 720 was a shock, though. Callers on the other end of the line reported terribly muffled voices as they had trouble making out what we were saying. The earpiece on our side was loud but voices were on the dry side.

Battery

Both devices last a solid one day of average use, and might last into the second if you barely use them. The Lumia 720 does have the larger 2000mAh battery and it gives it a slight edge, but it’s larger power hungry 4.3-inch display compensates for that. Still, the 720 is longer lasting with an estimated video playback capacity of 8.3 hours against 6 houra on the Lumia 620, and the 720 also supports optional wireless charging. The 620 in contrast has a modest 1300mAh juicer and the convenience of easy battery replacement, something the Lumia 720 does not have.


Conclusion

Looking back through the comparison, it’s clear that the Nokia Lumia 720 gets the upper hand. It’s got a vivid and larger 4.3-inch display, but it’s biggest advantages come in camera performance, battery life and call quality. Its unibody slim design is also extremely nice.

What about the Lumia 620, though, should it be off your list? Not exactly. First, the device is a bit more affordable, and second it’s much more compact and friendly to single-handed use. It’s got an extremely bright and vivid display, and provides the same fluid Windows Phone 8 experience at a lower price. If you are ready to spend a little more though and would actually prefer a larger screen, the Lumia 720 is one step ahead.

Yep, only advantage the 820/822/810 have over the 720 is the MicroSD card slot and slightly higher resolution (but worse optics and low-light imagery)

Why not Lumia 720 vs 820 and 620 vs 520?
That seems more reasonable

Because there is much price difference between 820 and 520.

520 620 and 720 are better than all other android phones in their respective price ranges.
820 and 920 not so.

I love my 620. I already had a 920 and I got the 620 to replace my Zune HD for a more robust experience with my Zun....XBOX Music pass and overall capabilities like Pandora and Nokia Music as well. I still use my 920 as my daily driver but I was amazed when I got my 620. maybe I miss smaller phones a little but my 920 still amazes me with the screen quality, camera, etc. I love both.

In this review as well, I guess the reviewer forgot to mention one very important aspect, Nokia Lumia 620 has free voice guided naviation over all the countries whereas Lumia 720 has this functionality restricted to a single country. This is a very important issue for those who use Nokia's superb voice guided naviation service. I admit the 720 has a scortching hot body and superior camera, but the 620 gives you the best bang for the buck. I mean, you can't really think of any better hardware-software at this price point of the 620.
