Nokia Lumia 720 now available in the UK


Lumia 720

The Nokia Lumia 720 is now available to buy in a number of territories around the world, including the UK.

Nokia's latest effort is the fifth Lumia to run Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 OS, and it sits right in the middle of the range.

Nokia Lumia 720 Features

The Nokia Lumia 720 offers a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 display, rather like the Nokia Lumia 900 before it. However, the Nokia Lumia 720's display works even when you have gloves on, which is a feature it shares with the likes of the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820.

Powering the Nokia Lumia 720 is a 1GHz dual-core CPU backed by 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. This is expandable by up to 64GB thanks to its microSD card slot.

The Lumia 720 also features a 6.7-megapixel rear camera, which sports a very similar image sensor to the flagship Nokia Lumia 920. It also has an extraordinarily wide f/1.9 aperture lens for quicker shots and superior low light performance.

Nokia Lumia 720 Pricing

Prices for the Nokia Lumia 720 start from £299.99 on Pay As You Go over at O2. Online retailed Clove is also offering the phone for that price, though a note on the website says that it's not expecting stock until April 8.

If you're after the Nokia Lumia 720 on contract, O2 is offering it for free on a £22 a month two year package. This gives you 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB of mobile network data.

alright phone but only with 512 ram when nowadays you get 1gb ram and dual core 1ghz which is not bad

For me, the 820 was too expensive, and the 620 just not good enough spec-wise.
I feel like Goldilocks, this is just right :)

It may only be a 1GHz dual core, but it still runs a lot smoother than the 1.4GHz quad-core tegra 3 in my One X. I think it's mainly due to the OS, but it's also worth noting that with a lower clock speed comes a longer battery life.

I think you will find that the 520 the 620 and the 720 have the same specs, excluding the camera. The former being more than half the price of the latter.

I do agree with u, that its OS effect for smoother operations, where android OS lags & looks cheap compared to WP8.
