Nokia Lumia 720

The Nokia Lumia 720 is thinner and lighter than lumia 820 but with a bigger battery, The Nokia Lumia 720 comes with a 4.3″ WVGA display, which  is nicely curved and the camera sounds more exciting than the run-of-the-mill shooter the 820 got.


The Lumia 720 features a 4.3″ WVGA display with Nokia’s ClearBlack technology and Gorilla Glass 2 protection. It differs from the 820 screen on two points – it’s a TFT screen (not AMOLED) and it’s curved. WVGA resolution (480 x 800) breaks down to 217ppi, which doesn’t sound particularly exciting, but it’s hard to expect a lot better for the asking price.

The Lumia 720 features  the 6.7MP camera. The resolution might sound strange at first, that’s how much you get in 16:9 mode from Nokia’s “8MP” cameras (which actually have an 8.7MP sensor). It’s just that the 4:3 section of the sensor on the Lumia 720 is missing.  The Lumia 720 camera uses a Carl Zeiss lens and is the first to feature a fast F/1.9 aperture for better low-light performance and the brand new Glam Me for portrait shots with the 1.3MP front-facing camera.

The Lumia 720 has a 2,000mAh battery – a respectable number for a 4.3″ phone and 350mAh more than the capacity of the thicker Lumia 820.

The Lumia 720 is powered by Windows Phone 8 and features Nokia’s exclusive stuff (besides the Lens). That’s the HERE maps and Nokia Mix Radio too. The 1GHz dual-core Krait processorand Adreno 305 , but it has potential for fragmentation down the line. The Nokia Lumia 720 features 8GB of built-in storage, which you can expand with a microSD card (of up to 64GB) and free 7GB at SkyDrive deal is in place too.
