After Digital Magnet introduced you guys to Lumia’s most pocket friendly smartphone it’s time to move up to the more high-end devices of the series. Today we are going to be looking at Nokia Lumia 720.
This unibody design makes the handset feel chic and solid at the same time
The design of the 720 is eye-catching from any perspective. The plastic chassis is curved along the edges all the way to the display panel on the front to match the colorful Windows 8 tiles. This unibody design makes the handset feel chic and solid at the same time. Its weight of 128g provides a well-balanced grip in the hand. You can choose between black, white, red, cyan and vibrant yellow colors.
Not only the colors of the case are vibrant, the 4.3 inch display delivers excellent colors, contrast and brightness at 480×800 pixels.

The IPS technology here along with the multi layer screen makes it look like the tiles are floating on the surface of the glass. They are clearly visible from very narrow angles. The 217ppi density also contributes to the great visual performance delivered by Adreno 305 GPU. The Super Sensitive touchscreen technology here ensures instant software response even when you have a pair of gloves on. The whole display panel has Gorilla Glass 2 protection.
The heart of the hardware set is the dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, backed up by 512MB of system memory. Loading it with a few running applications and browse windows the Lumia 720 faced our challenge with firm and smooth reactions. It did a great job loading full web pages with fullHD video contents.

On the back there is a 6.7MP base working at 2848×2144 pixel resolution. Its lens now covers a wider scene as the focal length of the lens is 26mm. Thus more people or landscape can fit in the composition in comparison to common smartphone cameras. Its low-light performance has also been enhanced thanks to the low f stop number of 1.9. Focusing has also been improved as the dedicated shutter camera key has a two-stage performance. This camera captures video in HD quality.
The front HD camera on the Lumia 720 has also been equipped with a wide-angle lens to make video sharing better and easier.

The wider angle means more people in the frame. The front camera also offers Glam Me mode – those are creative filters that play with the colors, tones and sharpness of the front camera. It also performs very well in low-light.
The unibody construction of the handset tells there is no direct access to the battery piece inside which is a non-replaceable 2000mAh one. It is plenty of power supply so you will not need to charge it every day. Power management will provide around 13 hours of talk time on 3G. The charging process itself is pretty easy as the Lumia 720 supports wireless charging through Nokia’s special charging plate, charging cover or charging pillow. All of those accessories are available in plenty of vibrant colors as well.
The microSD card slot allows you to expand the 8GB of built-in internal storage with 64GB more. Lumia 720 also comes with NFC and micro USB2 data transfer options.
