Nokia Lumia 730/735 review: Golden mean

Nokia Lumia 730 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 730 is an affordable Windows Phone 8.1 handset with ambitions to take great selfies. It also features the Lumia Denim update…

Stylish design ; Great selfie camera ; Good battery life ; Lumia Denim update makes capturing images faster ; HAAC mics for better audio recording

Display is not well calibrated by default: overblown, unreal colors ; Windows Phone feels stuttery, with long loading times ; Only 8GB of internal storage ; Loudspeaker sounds awful: hissy and distorted

The Nokia Lumia 730 lives up to the promise of being a great phone for those who like to take selfies. It’s not just that, though: with one of the best designs among its peers and an improved camera app it is a good phone overall. On the downside,...
