As a Tech Firm Owner i own Galaxy tablet, iPhone for testing my client websites on tablets/mobile compatibility.nnHence i know the working on both iOS as well as Android.nnBut for buying a phone for myself i was looking for an upgrade from my old iPhone 3GS which is jailbroken. Remember jailbroken nphones don't carry any warranty so i didn't get any service from nApple.nnNow coming to comparisons:nn1. Windows vs Android vs iOSnnApplications:nnAndroid has too many apps yes it is true but 50-60% of them are nmeant only for US customers. Believe me this is true since i am nowner of a website design company and also develop apps most napps target US users so 60% of those apps can't be used in nIndia.nnGames: All games development companies like Gameloft, Miniclip, nEA Games etc develop games for all platforms so whether you are non Android or Windows or iOS actually doesn't matter at all.nnTrue some popular games are paid in Windows but we surely have nbetter alternatives as well. Eg: Temple run says 1 GB required. nnActually Temple Run was made for only iPhone. And hence my old niPhone 3GS with 256MB RAM could play both Temple Run 1 as well nas 2. It lags on all Android phones.nnThere are many similar games in Windows like 3d run etc.nnYou have just ample apps in Windows platform for all your needs. nExample: tasks manager, reminder, calendar, alarm, wallet, nbirthday reminder, and all social networking apps as well as nbusiness app: The OFFICE.nnRAM: So ram even if its 512 MB it is good enough. Remember i nsaid my old iPhone plays Temple Run with 256mb RAM. So it is not na hardware issue. 512mb ram is more than sufficient to play ngames. It is that some games don't want to target Windows and nhave some stupid requirement. nnEase of Use:nnWindows is definitely much more easier than iOS and Android.nnLet me explain. In android or iOS as soon as you add an app you nget an icon. You can just move the icon to some other place. But nthe problem here is with increase in number of apps it nconstantly keeps on increasing your page numbers. So keep on nswiping your pages to access and find apps. nnWindows however keeps games in games area, you can pin any nimportant app as a tile, you can have multiple tiles with tile nresize in the home screen.nnIt feels much more organized and better to handle and easy.nnnLooks: Damn this phone is one of best looking phones currently nout in the market. You can proudly hold this and it shows how nclassy you are. It doesn't give any plasticky looks like Galaxy nGrand or cheap chinese mobiles.nnScreen size: If you have small or big hands this screen size is nperfect. 4:3 inch screen actually is BIG enough for good view of npictures or videos and is small enough to FIT into pocket as nwell. nnnThickness: It is so slim as well as so good in size that it ndoesn't look too big to handle like GALAXY Grand or S3 or any nother 5 inch phablet.nnSensitivity: One of the first to have Glove technology. You can neasily use your phone using gloves as well. Missing in most nhigher end mobiles as well. Touch is real smooth similar to niPhone.nnGorilla Glass 2: Awesome scratch resistant glass which looks ngood but is tough.nnCamera: Well you don't have to buy a digital camera if you hold nthis phone. 6.7 MegaPixels with ability to change texture, nexposure and ISO you can just click any picture like a PRO.nPanorama App from Nokia allows you to shoot Panoramic shots as well.nnSecondary Camera of 1.3 MP is highest and is actually a nsubstiture for Laptop Webcam. So if you use Skype for video ncalling you can use this phone readily.nnBattery: One of the best batteries. I used GPS in car using nNokia HERE Drive, played games, used Wifi a lot and still was nable to squeeze in 2 days from the mobile.nn2000 mAH battery is ample for you.nnExpandable Memory: Unlike iPhone with 32GB or 16GB here you can nadd more to the already 8GB phone.nnNokia Apps: Best apps like Office for Business or GPS (Nokia nHERE Drive), Nokia Here maps, and City Lens.nnNokia Here Drive one of the first in India to have FREE GPS in nyour mobile. Unlike iPhone or Android phones which ask you to nbuy a GPS software like Map My India etc here you get it for nfree. And it is actually very good as well in case you stay in a nCity.nnI stay in Nagpur and it has come very handy with voice guided nGPS navigation.nnPrice: Rs. 18000 i would say better in price with respect to nSamsung Galaxy Grand which has hanging problems. Better than nXperia ION, P, and J and Starry L and Micromax nCanvas HD.nnSo buy this if you have budget between 15-20k. This is currently nthe best phone in this segment.nnTrue review from a CERTIFIED buyer and Tech firm OwnernnPlease vote my review as helpful in case you find it useful.
Lumia 920 with pure view, great phone but too costly, Lumia 820 not as great as 920 no pure view on it, still 24000 bucks!! Lumia 620 thickest phone and with lowest battery capacity 1300mAh only, no carl zeiss tessar lens, only 3.8" display, Ok VGA front cam, NFC is there but no wireless charging and no gorilla glass for protection!!! 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!!)nnAlso look out for a few cool features of Lumia 720:-nn>>>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.nn>>>Nokia will be offering a range of snap-on covers for Lumia 720, which will enable wireless charging!!! Great!!!nn>>>Nokiaâ€™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.nnCons:-nn>>>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.nnFOR 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!!!nnLumia 720 is more than worth its price.nnFinally, 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!!
