Nokia Lumia 720 - good choice?

patryk8820 29 May 2013, 04:29 posted on

I'm planning to get a Lumia 720, what I like is a big battery. However, there are a couple of things that make me think about it - e.g. low pixel density and number of applications in app store. To those who have this model - is the resolution visible in practice - I know that some Samsung rivals have much higher resolution? As for the apps, I reckon that the number of apps does not entails their quality.
All in all, would you recommend the 720, or maybe some of Samsung models, like Samsung Galaxy SII - it has more RAM, but weaker batery, and battery capacity is important to me.

Go for a Different Ride with Lumia 720
It is definitely much more easier than iOS and Android.

Let me explain. In android or iOS as soon as you add an app you
get an icon. You can just move the icon to some other place. But
The problem here is to increase in number of apps it
Constantly keeps on increasing your page numbers. So keep on
Swiping your pages to access and find apps.

Windows however keeps games in games area, you can pin any
Important app as a tile, you can have multiple tiles with tile
Resize in the home screen.

It feels much more organized and better to handle and easy.

Looks: Damn this phone is one of the best looking phones currently
Out in the market. You can proudly hold this and it shows how
Classy you are. It doesn't give any plastic looks like Galaxy
Grand or cheap chinese mobiles.

Screen size: If you have small or big hands this screen size is
perfect. 4:3 inch screen actually is BIG enough for good view of
pictures or videos and is small enough to FIT into pocket as

Thickness: It is so slim as well as so good in size that it
Doesn't look too big to handle like GALAXY Grand or S3 or any
other 5 inch phablet.

Sensitivity: One of the first to have Glove technology. You can
easily use your phone using gloves as well. Missing in most
Higher end mobiles as well. Touch is real smooth similar to

Gorilla Glass 2: Awesome scratch resistant glass which looks
Good but is tough.

Camera: It has a 6MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics and an aperture of 1.9 the widest aperture available on a Smartphone today.Well you don't have to buy a digital camera if you hold this phone. 6.7 Mega Pixels with ability to change the texture,
Exposure and ISO you can just click any picture like a PRO.
Panorama App for Nokia allows you to shoot Panoramic shots as well.

Secondary Camera of 1.3 MP is highest and is actually a
substiture for Laptop Webcam. So if you use Skype for video
calling you can use this phone readily.

Battery: One of the best batteries. I used GPS while traveling using Nokia, played games, used Wifi a lot and still was able to squeeze in 2 days from the mobile.

2000 mAH battery is ample for you.

Expandable Memory: Unlike iPhone with 32GB or 16GB here you can
Add more to the already 8GB phone.

Nokia Apps: Best apps like Office for Business or GPS (Nokia
HERE Drive), Nokia Here maps, and City Lens.

Don't get fooled by the lack. The quality essentials are there

I've had it for a couple of weeks, and must say it works perfectly. As for the "low" resolution - don't believe that! The image is clear and sharp as it should be. I strongly recommend the device.
