Nokia Lumai 720 : Brilliantly amazing
12 April, 2014
Greetings everyone !
It was 8 months back that I became a proud owner of this Lumia 720 and today, No regrets. All my friends told me windows phone is not worth it, stick to android but even though I was owning an android then, I was not pretty much satisfied, as I am today. The transition from android to windows was way easier than people actually hyped about it.
The battery backup is amazing, the main advantage being, you don't have to carry your phone charger all the time and don't have to worry about charging just before leaving to some place. I get two days of battery even after keeping the data ON always, WhatsApp most of the time, Call for 2 hrs a day, Maps, Music (occasionally) and little browsing, which my Android couldn't provide me.
After I bought this phone, I have got software updates twice, each time making this phone smarter and amazing.
The music quality is really good. Loud speaker is loud enough with good quality but the ear phone that comes with this phone not In-the-Ear becoz of which the quality is not all that good, but if you use any other ear phones you get really good effect.
The Camera is brilliant. After the recent update to Lumia Black, the cam has become a mini D-SLR. You won’t believe your eyes if you see the pics clicked from this 6.7 MP phone. The flash is also pretty good.
The display is clear and crisp enough. even though the PPI is less when compared to other phones,it has a 4.3" clear black IPS LCD display which makes it vibrant.
Performance wise, I never felt any hang or lag till date. Touch wood.
It plays HD videos too, in spite of just a Dual core processor, where as most of the Dual core androids cant play it.
It is also sleek, light in weight, has NFC, supports Wireless charging, has 8 GB internal memory, supports mirco SD upto 64GB, offers SkyDrive which lets you save your photos, videos and everything else on the cloud and later can be accessed from any other windows device.
It is the best value for money product currently in the market that you can really rely upon. Yes, there are cheaper android phones available that may provide same or more features, but if you are worried about quality than quantity then go for Lumia 720.
I agree there are very less windows apps available, but even though there are lot of android apps available people generally don't install them just because it eats up space and battery. You do find many useful Windows app in the store. Many apps are developing right now, so you cannot conclude this is a con. Moreover, this con should be linked to the windows OS rather than this phone.
I don't work for Nokia nor do they pay me for advertising and so I'm still hunting for some Cons about this phone, but in vain. The only thing I could come up concluding as a con is that the Call Log doesn't group calls based on the contact or number. if you have called some one 50 times, then 50 entries will appear in your log, which is sometimes annoying. I'm really looking forward that someday even this issue will be resolved.
I recommended it to my friends and 3 out of 5 bought it.
A quick rating out of 5 of the basic things a smart phone should provide.
Battery: 5 / 5.
Performance: 4.5 / 5.
Display: 4.8 / 5.
Music quality: 4.8 / 5.
Camera: 5 / 5.
Value for money: You may take a call on this. Compare with other phones on Junglee.com and see the results for yourself.
From my real experience, I felt this is an investment than an expense. Truly worth every single penny.
