Nokia introduced two new Windows Phone 8 devices at Mobile World Congress this week, the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520. According to the display screen sizes and specs, these devices target the mid-range and low-end within the current market, respectively, providing a unique mix of high-end features and low-end prices.
Nokia Lumia 720 Specs
Nokia Lumia 720 uses a considerably standard 4.3in display having a quality 800×480 resolution. Its an IPS display and uses Nokia’s Clearblack technology for darker blacks and much better contrast. The screen is toned at the sides to match the unibody design and is also covered by Gorilla Glass 2. This is not one of the most highly-specified display screen then, however it still seems to be excellent, and have to keep that way.
On the inside is a Qualcomm SnapDragon S4 chipset having a 1GHz dual-core processor. That’s a contemporary chipset, and also the clock speed is appropriately suitable on a mid-range handset. A bit more disappointing is that it is just paired by using 512MB of RAM, so it’s possible you’ll find switching apps rapidly a bit slow.
The 2,000mAh battery is the right size, the exact same in fact as the one in the Nokia Lumia 920. That phone had a mediocire score in our battery evaluation, but the 720 should do a lot better due to its much lower clock speed and scaled-down display.
Regardless of the same size battery and the smaller sized display screen, the Lumia 720 is really sleeker compared to the 920 for just 9.0mm. At 127.9mm high and 67.5mm wide, this is a small handset that won’t trouble any pocket. Additionally, it weighs just 128g, therefore no problems there as well.
Nokia Lumia 720 Camera
Although the specification line-up is comparatively average, the device’s camera sports a great f/1.9 aperture and also Carl Zeiss optics accompanied by a 6.7MP sensor, because of the manufacturer having designed it to function effectively in low lighting conditions.
The front-facing camera also looks impressive, you will definitely get HD video for video calling. Furthermore, there is also the choice of wireless charging in case you shell our for the decicated accessory cover.
Nokia Lumia 720 Price and release date
The Nokia Lumia 720 seems a good choice in case you are searching for Windows Phone 8 smartphone which don’t cost you a lot
this handsets cost you around £250 in the UK – based on a EUR249 price tag plus Value-added tax. This is a very affordable price range for a rather-appealing Windows Phone 8 handset which has a well-specified camera.
