Purest expression of the Nokia Lumia design, absolutely beautiful phone

from WMExperts
For anyone who doesn't mind the slightly limited app and games selection, or doesn't need to fill their phone with apps, the Nokia Lumia 720 is a hands down winner. The battery life alone makes it worth your time to explore and the overall experience is excellent. The camera performs well enough for the money and the lack of a HD display doesn't really hurt the experience. However if you plan on anything more than casual gaming, want the fastest possible Windows Phone experience, or to feel unlimited by your device, the Lumia 720 may represent too many compromises...

Great smartphone with a strong set of features

from TechRadar

Windows Phone 8 runs smoother than a greased up penguin on an ice rink and this makes the Lumia 720 a joy to use, allowing us to slide seamlessly between screens.

The camera on the rear of the 720 is a pretty decent offering allowing you to take some solid snaps - although make sure the lighting is good - and the ability to download extra lenses is a nice feature.

We were delighted to see a microSD slot on the Lumia 720 which makes this handset a real option for media consumption on the go, with the large screen also making movie watching a piece of cake.

We really l... Full review


It is not only worth it’s price but also let’s you forget it is an mid-range device

from WMPoweruser
For less than 380 Euros you will get a well performing device with a awesome battery life and a great camera. You are almost not any slower than on a high-end device, the only real negative is the fact that you can’t play high-end games, which mid-range Android devices and the iPhone 4 can. Also the screen resolution is not the highest, but that is not an issue in any way because the screen is great even with only 480×800 pixels... Full review

It has sleek sexy design, amazing battery life and great low light camera

from Coolsmartphone
The Lumia 720 is a great step forward in the Lumia story and is highly recommended to be considered if you are in the market for a great all-round mid range phone without wanting to break the bank.. Full review
Phone Report v2.0

A quality smartphone without spending too much money

from Phone Report v2.0

The Nokia Lumia 720 fills the void in the Windows Phone 8 portfolio for customers looking for a good smartphone at an affordable price, together with decent features and up-to-date software.

With a 4.3″ display that has vibrant colours and a dual-core 1 GHz processor, it’s suitable for video playback and games, although the experience could be improved if the screen presented an HD resolution, and if the clock-speed and RAM were increased.

The camera was the most disappointing feature if the customer is a photography enthusiast, but for most users, it will not ma... Full review


Maintains a real-world performance that is at least comparable to its Android-based rivals.

from NDTV
The Nokia Lumia 720 is a really attractive proposition. The phone checks all the right boxes, from great looks, to a camera that performs quite well, and hardware that handles pretty much everything you throw its way. Yes, Windows Phone still has a long way to go before it can begin to compete with Android and iOS, but unless you are someone who must have access to the latest apps, it will do the job for you, since most popular titles, barring a few high-profile exceptions (like Instagram) are already here...

The Mobile Indian

A mid-range smartphone that keeps you connected and also provides amazing battery life

from The Mobile Indian
Nokia Lumia 720 smartphone with Windows Phone 8 is priced officially at Rs 18,999 and can be purchased for less. All those folks who like to read emails in a unified inbox, engage in social networks across a simple interface, make calls and send texts, should absolutely consider the Lumia 720. For a mid-range device, the Lumia 720 does offer suitable imaging quality and decent battery life. Not to miss out on Nokia Exclusive goodies - Music, Maps, Mix Radio, and other pre-loaded apps. ...

Phones Review

Comprises both price and balance

from Phones Review

Overall the Lumia 720 is a good phone to have, for its good camera and features, nice form factor, which is reminiscent of the attractive Lumia collection, and also for its long-lasting battery life. The only downside is perhaps that the battery cannot be removed, and the screen though not a letdown, isn’t great either.

The Lumia 720 is a great smartphone, which supports and completes the Windows 8 experience, and is a strong Lumia series device. Although placed in between other devices, the Lumia 720 packs in features that are illustrative of its quality independent to other... Full review

PC Pro

Excellent camera and superb battery life

from PC Pro
The Nokia can’t compete with the Nexus 4 on screen resolution or screen size, then, but it has better screen quality and battery life and a slightly superior camera. With both phones costing the same SIM-free and on contract, that gives the Nokia Lumia 720 the edge – it’s a phone worth switching from Android for... Full review
Fone Arena

A solid mid range offering particularly suited to beginner smartphone users

from Fone Arena
A better camera, higher battery capacity and great build quality is what you get when you buy a Nokia Lumia 720. Is it perfect ? No, but it comes very close. For the average user the Nokia Lumia 720 will tick most checkboxes as it nails the essentials. All is however not perfect considering the RAM limit on the handset. We also feel that the handset should have included a 720p screen. We can definitely recommend the Nokia Lumia 720 as a solid mid range offering particularly suited to beginner smartphone users...
