New Nokia Lumia 730 and 735 promo video is all about taking and sharing selfies

New Nokia Lumia 730 and 735 promo video is all about taking and sharing selfies
Microsoft’s first selfie phones, the Lumia 730 and 735, will be available to buy around the world (including in the US) later this month. Until that happens, the handsets are being promoted with the help of a new video that was released on YouTube today.

Without being outstanding, the video is pretty cool. It follows the urban adventure of a young couple, and is - of course - full of selfies. As you may know, both the Lumia 730 and 735 come with 5 MP wide-angle front-facing cameras which should enable you to “fit more in your selfies.”

The 730 and 735 are almost identical devices. The difference is that the 730 has dual SIM capabilities, while the 735 doesn’t, instead featuring LTE connectivity. The list of common features include: a 4.7-inch ClearBlack OLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 6.7 MP rear camera with LED flash, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2220 mAh battery. Windows Phone 8.1 Denim is on board.

As mentioned a few times already, the Lumia 730 and 735 might be two of the last Nokia-branded smartphones ever, as Microsoft is ditching the Nokia name from its products and websites.

I think 730 is better value for money. Great design , slightly resembles Lumia 800. Lumia 830 is good too but there are better options.

What about price?

Yeah. Price is important. If Samsung prices that thing the same with the Lumia 830, it's a flop. If it's priced like the 730, I think it's great

Again,some people will pick up windows phone over that because they want a windows phone. Simple as that. That sounds like a good alternative...but i highly doubt their support for low-mid end smartphones. While every lumia running on WP8.1 will get WP9 too! (Except some features exclusive to phones with 4.9' screen) (Not totally sure but that's what rumors say)

Yeah that's even better. Though I wanna know about the price and whether that front cam will be wide angle. I'm just a fan of wide angle. XD That Snap410 is a plus and both cams have good res.

Hey sip, do you like to put every tile transparent or let it the way it is? I like it all transparent. They should show this cool feature in adverts.

Every tile on my home screen is transparent......I agree, they should show this on the ads too.

Maybe better software would be better with the 5MP FFC.

Nokia Lumia 730 is a pretty standard device, but it should be the smartphone of choice for those who love to take selfies. The photos offer rich colours and good level of details, so you would not go wrong in buying this smartphone if the focus is the camera.
