Nokia Lumia 720 Features and Specifications
Design and build quality
Nokia Lumia 720 Features quite a sleek and slim design which is somewhat better than Nokia’s flagship device, the Lumia 920. It has the dimensions of 127.9 x 67.5 x 9 millimetres. The phone is quite light, weighing only 128 grams. However, the phone does have a tendency to slide out of one’s hand, owing to the roundness in the edges. The phone is available in many colours including black, red, blue, yellow and white.
The Lumia 720 features a 4.3-inch IPS screen. The IPS technology allows the screen to have a good viewing angle and the colours appear relatively bright and rich. The screen has an aspect ratio of 15:9 so the movie buff out there will definitely be happy. The pixel density of the screen is a moderate 217ppi. For a mid-range Smartphone, the screen is definitely above average. Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection is available on the phone too.
Nokia Lumia 720 Camera
The main camera in the Lumia 720 is a 6.1 megapixel camera featuring Carl Zeiss optics and a fairly large aperture of f/1.9. The large aperture allows exceptional low-light performance. The images do not suffer from hand-held shake thanks to optical image stabilization. Images look fairly sharp and crispy and colours are well reproduced by the camera. The front-facing camera is wide angled at f/2.4, and is 1.3 MP large. Both the cameras support 720p HD video recording.
Under-the-hood, the Lumia 720 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC. It has a dual-core ARM processor running at 1 GHz and an Adreno 305 graphics processor. The phone has 512 MB RAM. Everyday tasks are smooth enough thanks to the hardware. However, the low RAM might cause slow responsiveness when multiple applications are running simultaneously. There is lack of FM Radio, which can be an issue for some music lovers, if they don’t want to spend too much on Internet Radio data charges. Nokia Lumia 720 Specifications also includes Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP and EDR, file transfers, NFC support, 3.5mm audio jack with Dolby headphone sound enhancement.
Nokia has offered a 2000mAh battery in the Lumia 720, which is decent enough for daily use. The phone should last throughout a day.
