It is a reasonably good handset. Here we take a look at Nokia Lumia 720 specs, features, price and release date

Finnish technology giant is working extra time to ensure it fully exploits the latest operating system from Microsoft, Windows Phone 8. After introducing its best handset till date in the form of Lumia 920, it has introduced around a dozen handsets running on the same platform with different features, specifications and in all price range to attract every income group to its handsets.

The recently announced Lumia 720 is another handset from the company that fits somewhere between medium to lower range and comes with reasonably good specifications to attract people with affinity towards Windows Phone handset. Though the handset may not be the best in the market, it comes with rather medium features and with very good build quality to ensure that it lasts very long. Its body is not plasticky and looks very good for its price range.

For people who are socially active and believe in high-end style, the all-new Nokia Lumia 720 will help them flaunt it up.  The striking features of this handset are an exceptional camera experience, navigation system that will never make you go the wrong way and latest music for all those who love music.

The phone runs on Windows Phone 8 operating system and is a delight to use. Talking about the camera, the handset comes with a very impressive and useful 6.3 Mega pixel camera. Nokia’s largest f1.9 aperture and Carl Zeiss optics will make you click better, clearer and sharper pictures, whether it is night or day, the pictures will be of exceptional quality.  Its front facing secondary camera comes with 1.3 megapixel. Whether it is a group picture or you are making a video call, the results will be impressive. There will be five colours for Nokia Lumia 720 and the expected price is about 249 Euros. The broader markets for this handset will see the inclusion of China, Europe, Asia, Africa and India. Chances are that this might not get launched in the US at all.

Another option that makes this phone pro music lovers is that favorite music playlists can be pinned to the screen directly. It will be easier to stay in touch with friends with the PeopleHub feature and resizable Live Tiles. The unique application experiences will be due to the Windows Phone panorama design.

The phone is powered by dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset, clocking in at 1GHz. The web can be browsed more easily and quickly, making them get more life from the phone, which has been made to be user-friendly. The battery will last longer, making it a better and an effortless experience overall. The phone has been termed as a trendy option for phone lovers due to its sleek design. The device supports a 4.3’’ display and like the Nokia Lumia 920, the Lumia 720 is super sensitive. Even under the sun, the phone claims to give good viewing angles and decent readability making the device not only user-friendly but also for people who want it all yet maintain style. To be true, if you are not after the most expensive handset and want to go for a Windows Phone8 smart-phone this should be a natural choice. The handset should be out early March.
