The Nokia Lumia 720 is a mid-range Windows Phone that seems like a high end device. We put it through the paces while traveling around Endoshima, Fujisawa City in Japan.
The Nokia Lumia 720 sports a 4.3-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. The smartphone is powered by a 1GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm MSM8227 processor paired with 512MB of RAM.
One of the outstanding features of this mid-range Windows Phone handset is it's 6.7 megapixel primary camera that has a large f/1.9 lens and Carl Zeiss optics, which basically gives the 720 high-end camera performance and excellent images in low-light conditions. The smartphone also gets a 1.3 megapixel camera with wide-angle lens at the front.
Nokia has provided 8GB of internal storage on the Lumia 720, which can further be expanded by up to 64GB using a micro-SD card. The smartphone gets a 2,000mAh battery under the hood as well.
