Honest Review from a Tech Firm Owner

As a Tech Firm Owner i own Galaxy tablet, iPhone for testing my client websites on tablets/mobile compatibility.

Hence i know the working on both iOS as well as Android.

But for buying a phone for myself i was looking for an upgrade from my old iPhone 3GS which is jailbroken. Remember jailbroken
phones don't carry any warranty so i didn't get any service from
Apple.

Now coming to comparisons:

1. Windows vs Android vs iOS

Android has too many apps yes it is true but 50-60% of them are
meant only for US customers. Believe me this is true since i am

1. Windows vs Android vs iOS

Applications:

Android has too many apps yes it is true but 50-60% of them are
meant only for US customers. Believe me this is true since i am
owner of a website design company and also develop apps most
apps target US users so 60% of those apps can't be used in
India.

Games: All games development companies like Gameloft, Miniclip,
EA Games etc develop games for all platforms so whether you are
on Android or Windows or iOS actually doesn't matter at all.

True some popular games are paid in Windows but we surely have
better alternatives as well. Eg: Temple run says 1 GB required.

Actually Temple Run was made for only iPhone. And hence my old
iPhone 3GS with 256MB RAM could play both Temple Run 1 as well
as 2. It lags on all Android phones.

There are many similar games in Windows like 3d run etc.

You have just ample apps in Windows platform for all your needs.
Example: tasks manager, reminder, calendar, alarm, wallet,
birthday reminder, and all social networking apps as well as
business app: The OFFICE.

RAM: So ram even if its 512 MB it is good enough. Remember i
said my old iPhone plays Temple Run with 256mb RAM. So it is not
a hardware issue. 512mb ram is more than sufficient to play
games. It is that some games don't want to target Windows and
have some stupid requirement.

Ease of Use:

Windows is definitely much more easier than iOS and Android.

Let me explain. In android or iOS as soon as you add an app you
get an icon. You can just move the icon to some other place. But
the problem here is with increase in number of apps it
constantly keeps on increasing your page numbers. So keep on
swiping your pages to access and find apps.

Windows however keeps games in games area, you can pin any
important app as a tile, you can have multiple tiles with tile
resize in the home screen.

It feels much more organized and better to handle and easy.

Looks: Damn this phone is one of best looking phones currently
out in the market. You can proudly hold this and it shows how
classy you are. It doesn't give any plasticky looks like Galaxy
Grand or cheap chinese mobiles.

Screen size: If you have small or big hands this screen size is
perfect. 4:3 inch screen actually is BIG enough for good view of
pictures or videos and is small enough to FIT into pocket as
well.

Thickness: It is so slim as well as so good in size that it
doesn't look too big to handle like GALAXY Grand or S3 or any
other 5 inch phablet.

Sensitivity: One of the first to have Glove technology. You can
easily use your phone using gloves as well. Missing in most
higher end mobiles as well. Touch is real smooth similar to
iPhone.

Gorilla Glass 2: Awesome scratch resistant glass which looks
good but is tough.

Camera: Well you don't have to buy a digital camera if you hold
this phone. 6.7 MegaPixels with ability to change texture,
exposure and ISO you can just click any picture like a PRO.
Panorama App from Nokia allows you to shoot Panoramic shots as well.

Secondary Camera of 1.3 MP is highest and is actually a
substiture for Laptop Webcam. So if you use Skype for video
calling you can use this phone readily.

Battery: One of the best batteries. I used GPS in car using
Nokia HERE Drive, played games, used Wifi a lot and still was
able to squeeze in 2 days from the mobile.

2000 mAH battery is ample for you.

Expandable Memory: Unlike iPhone with 32GB or 16GB here you can
add more to the already 8GB phone.

Nokia Apps: Best apps like Office for Business or GPS (Nokia
HERE Drive), Nokia Here maps, and City Lens.

Nokia Here Drive one of the first in India to have FREE GPS in
your mobile. Unlike iPhone or Android phones which ask you to
buy a GPS software like Map My India etc here you get it for
free. And it is actually very good as well in case you stay in a
City.

I stay in Nagpur and it has come very handy with voice guided
GPS navigation.

Price: Rs. 18000 i would say better in price with respect to
Samsung Galaxy Grand which has hanging problems. Better than
Xperia ION, P, and J and Starry L and Micromax
Canvas HD.

So buy this if you have budget between 15-20k. This is currently
the best phone in this segment.

Nokia Lumia 720, Best Lumia Ever! (520 vs 620 vs 720 vs 820 vs 920 brief comparison)

Lumia 520 4" display but no front cam, no Nokia clear black display, no flash, no carl zeiss lens and no gorilla glass for protection!!! But Lumia 720 has carl zeiss lens, has gorilla glass2, great camera with 1/3.6'' sensor size main cam with HD recording, has flash, has front cam with HD recording!, has wireless charging just like higher end lumia's and finally superb battery of 2000mAh which is equal to Lumia 920 but less that Lumia 820!! This is the best affordable thinnest Lumia at just 9mm thickness with almost all the features for Lumia's 920 & 820!!(except for RAM and Full HD 1080p Recording which is missing in Lumia 720 Almost all the other features are present for Just 18000 Bucks!!)

Also look out for a few cool features of Lumia 720:-

>>>6.7MP camera with an F/1.9 aperture, the widest on a mobile phone yet and with Carl Zeiss Tessar Lens. It's similar to that of the 820 and 920 in that it's a hybrid, handling both 4:3 and 16:9 aspects relatively well. It loses only 12% resolution when switching to widescreen mode, rather than 33% like conventional sensors.

>>>Nokia will be offering a range of snap-on covers for Lumia 720, which will enable wireless charging!!! Great!!!

>>>Nokia???s recent innovation known as High Amplitude Audio Capture (HAAC), allows you to record audio in noisy locations and then reproduce the audio with minimal background noise. This is Deployed in Lumia 720.The novelty behind the High Amplitude Audio Capture is a microphone with two different sensitivity levels for recording. Later, the dual channel combines to give a broad dynamic range that sounds clear even if the audio is recorded with lots of distortion.Nokia Lumia HAAC recording technology can record up top 140 decibels without any audible distortion, while most of other smartphones find it hard when noise levels go beyond 110 decibels.

Cons:-

>>>The only disappointment is the 512MB Ram. But still all wp8 phone like HTC 8S in this same range has same amount of RAM minus the front camera minus Nokia city lens for almost the same price. RAM doesn't matter since WP8 is very light compared to android(LAGDROID lol). Also all androids (Lagdroids) in this price range are duds. Especially those good for nothing Samsungs.

FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE RAM>>> IPHONE 4S HAS ONLY 512MB RAM BUT STILL IT COSTS 34K IN INDIA AND STILL ITS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE GREATEST PHONES EVER MADE... REMEMBER,,,, IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW MUCH RAM A SMART PHONE HAS, IT DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH RAM THE OS ACTUALLY NEEDS TO RUN ANY KIND OF APPLICATION SMOOTHLY WITHOUT ANY ANDROID LIKE LAG !!! IPHONE 4S HAS PROVED IT ONCE FOR ALL!!!!!!!!!! SO NEVER EVER WORRY ABOUT THE RAM!!!

Lumia 720 is more than worth its price.

Finally, NOKIA is Back!! Its Back With A BANG!!! Its Back With What It Does The Best(Bringing the best of Technology to common people at affordable price without compromising Quality)!! NOKIA is not just a brand, Nokia is Quality, Nokia is Innovation! Love You NOKIA!!

Answer to Ritam Dutta

I was also confused between 720 and 620.. But i chose to go for 720 based on the following reasons--

1. Looks: Much better compare to 620. Lumia 720 looks more premium with its 4.3 inch display compare to Lumia 3.8 inch display. Lumia 720 is the slimmest in all the Lumia Family which is sexy..

2. Camera: A far more awesome camera which is being compared to iphone and lumia 920 camera.

3. Battery: 2000mAh battery in Lumia 720 is far far much better than 620 1350mAh. Even 520 offers a better battery backup than 620. Gone through a lot of reviews about Lumia 720 battery and its said it giv...

3. Battery: 2000mAh battery in Lumia 720 is far far much better than 620 1350mAh. Even 520 offers a better battery backup than 620. Gone through a lot of reviews about Lumia 720 battery and its said it gives more battery backup than promised. And i believe a smartphone with more battery backup is awesome.

4. Gorina Glass: Lumia 720 providing Gorina Glass gives you more protection and stylish looks over 620.

Conclusion: If you can compromise the above points for few more bucks, i would say Lumia 620 is still a good choice.. But in a era of smartphones.. Lumia 720 may last a little longer than Lumia 620.

I have gone through a lot of reviews on all the lumia phones. And even i prefer 520 better than 620.

I have ordered 720 and eagerly waiting for it to arrive. Hope it helps you to decide. :)

Lumia 720 is a mid range windows smartphone in both specs and features so keep in mind that while you will get a host of wow factors there will always be something you will not be satisfied with. Most of them are bearable some, which I found particularly unpleasant, I have noted later.

Lumia 720 is a mid range windows smartphone in both specs and features so keep in mind that while you will get a host of wow factors there will always be something you will not be satisfied with. Most of them are bearable some, which I found particularly unpleasant, I have noted later.

Windows phone 8
Clear, classic, smooth interface. Nothing gets simpler and more fluid. Upside means better performance, longer backup and minimal annoying background processes. (I have used note2 and my primary concern was shutting down background apps to save battery)

The downside means 'no pull-down bar', limited customization for home screen. You get live tiles which can provide some range of customization.

Number pad
The dialler is simple, but has 'no cursor; only backspace'. So no adding/deleting digits from in-between. As of yet I cannot figure out why they kept the alphanumeric number pad in the dialler, there is no way to type a,b or c from the number pad.

Keyboard
Smooth and easy. But the cursor problem. You have to hold the screen a bit to make the cursor appear and then move it around while still holding the screen. Uncomfortable compared to android. Regardless, I have been using MS office for a while and have typed enough pages without difficulty.

Camera
Amazing!! with great free apps to complement it. This is the feature I have experimented with the most and I love it. In the 15-18k range I would say Lumia 720 gets you the best camera you can.
Video recording is HD (not fullHD) but I don't care.

Screen
4.29 inches. Ideal size for me. Any more than 4.5" is too large and not for my phone usage. This phone fits smugly into your hands and very easy for single-handed usage.

480 x 800p resolution. The picture quality is good. Note that HD videos can be streamed but will be seen the same as 480p videos.

Battery backup
Brilliant. If I use wi-fi I charge about once in 1-2 days. If I don't use wi-fi I charge once in 2-3 days. This after 1-2 hours of calling, and 2-6 hours of using apps.

The app market
With all due respect, the windows market is still expanding so do not expect the google play scenario here. There is a limited selection of great apps and a rising diversity but not comparable to android.

Games
This is not a phone for heavy gaming. If you wanna play, simple games like unblock, temple run and jetpack are your best bet. Windows store has good 2D and 3D games, many of them free. You have great games if you're willing to pay Rs.55 - 220 for them (Xbox Halo, iStunt). But amny games crash and close on long usage (>15-30 min), the phone gets heated and battery drains.

Privacy issues- the app permissions are fewer compared to android. Most will only ask for owner identity, phone identity, data services, location services. This means that they only get an anonymous id for your phone/yourself and your location (if GPS is on)
But there are apps which ask for permission to use photo/music/video libraries and some even ask for contacts list. If you're apprehensive just don't install them.
Privacy is better compared to android- no access to your browser history/usage or your fb/gmail/yahoo accounts or the data stored on phone/sd card outside of that specified.

Memory and RAM
User phone memory is about 5.2 GB. Apps can only be installed in this memory. But believe me, this is not a problem at all. I have installed about 40 different apps and still have 2 GB left. Why? Because many windows apps are smaller and more efficient. The largest 3D game I have is just 226 MB and it is good.
I recommend adding an SD card for keeping music and videos.

RAM is sufficient to run anything you have on the market (except some games)

The WOW factors--
Great design, fits in hand.
Great camera
Free Nokia Music downloads for about 6 months
HERE apps- Maps (need 1 time download and GPS), drive, transit, city lens
MS office
Tansfer my data app- transfer contacts+messages+calender from any phone with bluetooth.
*Glance screen

The BAD and UGLY-
There is just ONE volume control. That same volume governs your ringtone, music, alarm, message, reminder, every-thing-on-your-phone volume. This is really, really annoying.

The bing-search soft key, being utterly useless. I need search customization or some other (say open menu key) rather than a stupid key to display bing search results in IE.

There is no way to back up contacts/messages offline. Nokia suite often does not work with WP8 (worked only once for me). The only way to back up contacts/messages is online skydrive account. You can only back up video/music offline.

*Some apps keep hogging storage with each use and no way to clean cache except uninstall and reinstall
The IE/other browsers not that good. Can't save pages, downloading is poor and more than 4-6 tabs leads to crashes

It's still a good phone in this price range. You may want to check Lumia 625 too.

Sorry about the long review, appreciate your vote.

3. The Main menu is simple series of apps, which is ordered alphabetically (very easy to use and search apps).

4. Integrated people profiles (its in android too) but what WP8 does a step ahead is displays an aggregated news feed in the What???s New tab, as well as gathered photo albums from the various profiles linked.

5. People - the most integrated contacts application. You can populate your contacts list by importing SIM contacts or adding your social media accounts FB,Twitter,Gmail,Outlook,Hotmail etc.

6. Microsoft Office - The preinstalled application lets you view, create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. Its there for Android but with a set of its own restrictions.

7. Camera Apps for WP8 - you have to use it to believe it. It does some wonder works for photography. And there are lot of those free apps.

All in all Windows Phone 8 as an OS has some great nifty features that eliminate some of the little stresses of everyday smartphone usage.

Now Talking about NOKIA Lumia 720 as the device
With all the above apps installed, most of them run in background connected to internet, the phone still runs like butter smooth. Thanks to the 1GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm. The 512 MB RAM allows nice multitasking without any lag as compared to its android counterparts.
The making of the phone brilliant. When try holding each of 520,620,820 and even 920, you will love the thickness and back cover finish of 720. It surely gives the touch of a premium phone.
The 6.7 MP back camera powered by Carl Zeiss Tessar Lens is no normal one. It has Auto Focus, Touch Focus, Auto and Manual White Balance, Multi-scene Mode, Geo-tagging, Image Editor and the flash light takes great low light pictures apart from the incredible day light images. The video shoot quality is also pretty decent with a pixel ration of
720 x 1280. The front 1.3MP camera also takes some decent pictures. The sound quality of the speaker is good. NOKIA should provide some descent earphones though for such a price, anyways since I use Sennheiser so that produces some great sound and the equalizer options are nice for the audio settings. The 2000 mAh for a user like me gives a cool back up of one day if you are on continuous wifi or data connection is on. I don???t talk much though.

I am sure that 99% people don't prefer Windows phone just because of its weak free app store base as compared to the vast app pool of Android and iOS. And again i am sure that among those 99%, 100% wont even install .5% apps from those vast app pools because obvious their smart phones will start hanging and lagging in performance. And from the .5% installed apps they might be using only the regular day to day apps like Facebook,Twitter,WhatsApp etc.
