Nokia Lumia 720 review

 

The keystone to Nokia's Windows Phone 8 onslaught

Slick OS ; Good camera ; Attractive design ; Great battery life

Average screen ; Keyboard not great ; No removable battery

Being the middle child is always difficult, so in that respect the Nokia Lumia 720 has it tough as it nestles slap bang in the centre of the Finnish firm's Windows Phone 8 range.

Nokia Lumia 720 - Pocket-lint

 

There's a lot that the Lumia 720 does well. The camera is great and Nokia's additions to Windows Phone 8 make it difficult to ignore. If you're in

Great design and build quality, feels great in the hand, plenty of software additions from Nokia, good camera performance

Feels a little sluggish, not a huge step-up over the cheaper Lumia 620

There’s a lot to like about the Nokia Lumia 720. As a device, the design is fantastic and the build quality is great. It might not be the slimmest, or boast the greatest specs, but it is a nice comfortable phone to use day-to-day.

Nokia Lumia 720 pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

The Nokia Lumia 720 is the new cheaper Nokia Lumia 820. That's really the main takeaway from the announcement of the Lumia 720 at Mobile World Congress

Nokia Lumia 720

 

A Windows Phone 8 mobile with an affordable price and decent camera.

Good-looking body, Nippy performance, Solid build

Price feels slightly too high, Low screen resolution too often evident

Nokia Lumia 720 review

 

Design is a personal thing, but we even prefer the 720 to its more expensive and bigger Lumia brethren. The 720 is smaller, thinner and lighter than the 920 - it's 128g rather than the 920's too-heavy 185g, and only 9mm thick.

We really like the Lumia 720. Nokia has made a well-balanced smartphone which could be exactly what Windows Phone 8 needs. It offers decent performance at a more than decent price.

A lovely mid-range Windows Phone 8 handset, but we don't think it offers enough over the cheaper Lumia 620

Nokia Lumia 720 Review: In Depth

 

The Nokia Lumia 720; what is the Nokia Lumia 720 and why would you choose it over its incredibly priced little brother, the Nokia Lumia 620 or its LTE clad bigger bro, the Lumia 820?For starters, the Lumia…

Great unibody design ; Strong camera in all light conditions ; Fantastic battery life

Low resolution screen ; WP8 app support remains mediocre ; RAM may be a concern for future

Nokia Lumia 720 review

 

Nokia's Lumia handsets are coming thick and fast. They all runon the Windows Phone 8 operating system and the 720 comes in themiddle of the pack, with a midrange spec by Nokia standards, butattention to detail and a feast of add-ons nudges it closer to...

Excellent build, slim and lightweight, good camera, great Nokiaextras, bit of a bargain

Windows Marketplace still a little light

The Nokia Lumia 720 is a solid mid-range phone but with betterthan expected build quality, a better than average camera and agood range of Nokia extras including HERE Maps and Drive satnav,plus Music and the Microsoft Office suite. You get a lot for...

Nokia Lumia 720

 

It's tough being the middle child, but Nokia's midrange Lumia 720 aims to capture buyers affections via a good looking design and great camera tech.

Excellent design; great rear-facing camera; thin, light and pocket-friendly frame.

Some lag while multitasking; non-HD display; and similarly specced but cheaper Android alternatives available.
