Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 release date set for April 1 (not a joke)

Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 release date set for April 1 (not a joke)
The new Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 are two very well priced devices allowing Windows Phone to finally start spreading its reach with more affordable devices, and good news is the two colorful new Nokias will launch on April 1st, at least according to UK retailer Clove.

The Nokia Lumia 720 is the more refined of the two Windows Phone 8 devices, coming in a sleek 9mm body with interchangeable covers (you can add a cover for wireless charging), and a wide f/1.9 aperture camera that should perform admirably in low light. The Lumia 720 actually has the widest aperture ever in a smartphone camera. It is a mid-ranger, but one with almost no compromises - it has a 4.3-inch ClearBlack display and both a rear and front facing camera, and carries an off-contract price of 250 euro (around $325) off contract.

The Nokia Lumia 520 on the other hand is an extremely affordable device selling only for 140 euro (around $180) off contract. Nokia really ups the bar here with a 4-inch WVGA display and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Again, it uses the cheerful design with different colors we’ve gotten used to.

With nokiagoogles on, even the nokia 3310 has a better camera than htc one. You are dreaming fanboy, please wake up.

will you shut the f**k up? first that senseless comment about hp buying nokia and now this. no one can surely say which phone has better camera based solely on that video but the mere fact that an entry level lumia has a camera that is comparable to htc's flagship means htc has failed big time. HTC One has a price tag of 600 euros vs 250 of 720. And they were bashing 808...

Buying this is like buying a car only because you thought the cdplayer was good.

considering the fact that 720 is a mid range phone, i'd say it's good in pretty much every aspect (i'll still wait for review if i plan on buying this). Besides, camera for a phone is far more important (actually most used feature) than a cd playet is for a car.

Recommend you buying a sammy Gs3 instead. Sammy has the best phones.

Best phone in what way? Can you explain me? Most of Samsung devices are looked the same. If Nokia switch to Android then i think you will quickly get Nokia Phone and give up your crap Samsung.

When Nokia say SIT, the nokiafanboys sit. When nokia showing 5 year old technology and saying its the latest, the nokiafanboys say WOW!

You're the one who said "...can't stand..." not me.

is it a hobby of yours to draw conclusion without proof/logic? I bet you're religious. How exactly is f/1.9, which is a first for any phone (let alone an affordable one), a 5 year old technology?

Maybe you should buy a camera instead. This is phone.

Maybe you should get a life instead, or a job or a girlfriend or whatever before talking crap. None of it is five year old technology, none made by Sammy. So in the best way that suits you "learn before blabbering rubbish, this forum can't stand fanboys like you".

Please be serious...

Says the Samsung shill. If you have nothing good to debate on and just want to do nothing other than starting just flame wars, just STFU. No one will miss you. The forum is a pretty good place without guys like you, TROLL, darac who want to thrust their opinion on everyone.

Umm, i love samsung i own note 2...and i think nokia should've updated to android but stating that nokia's TECH is old is incorrect their Operating system is apparently new "windows" but has miles to go agreed. As for the camera the advances nokia has made...are Untouchable. If u have no idea of how a camera functions and it's important of sensor size and aperture and optical zoom your argument should be for the OS since everything else would be invalid. Cameras to a user is soo important since 80% of personal usage By a user is to take a photo according 2 forbes survey AND LOGIC no one wants 2 products to carry when they can have in one...
