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>>>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.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!!
You are literally a douchebag complaining about things liken"Not being able to install apps offline", probably you are a fan of pirated apps, go somewhere else.nnYou haven't even purchased the phone and are screaming lame things just to discourage people, you should go buy a plastic samsung phone or an htc device and install those laggy, ad filled pirated apps that need permissions like reading your call log, seeing which color underwear you are wearing and access your phonebook. Its like posting your bank account credentials in the public. No matter which android phone you buy **IT WILL START LAGGING** after a few weeks of use.nnIf you are so interested in playing games, get yourself a console, phones aren't meant for gaming. Even the best android phone will lag. Before complaining, note that microsoft focuses on 'security' and doesn't want any nasty jerk like you to cause piracy, if you are so very used to piracy, switch to lagdroid and stop assuming about windows.nnSomeone just informed me that you use a "Nokia 1100" LOL!nnI strongly urge flipkart to remove that review coz its written by an insane person knowing nothing about windows.
I was also confused between 720 and 620.. But i chose to go for 720 based on the following reasons--nn1. 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..nn2. Camera: A far more awesome camera which is being compared to iphone and lumia 920 camera. nn3. 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.nn4. Gorina Glass: Lumia 720 providing Gorina Glass gives you more protection and stylish looks over 620.nnConclusion: 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. nnI have gone through a lot of reviews on all the lumia phones. And even i prefer 520 better than 620.nnI have ordered 720 and eagerly waiting for it to arrive. Hope it helps you to decide. :)
First of all m jst gonna say BUY IT IF IT FITS UR BUDGET!!!!Thats it,at this price u can't hav ny better,the design,camera and battery can't get ny better at this range.....nyway M nt goin to divide my review into "PROS" and "CONS" instead i will go through it's features in brief...so lets start with the :-n1) Built nd Design: it is mainly a unibody phone made with colorful polycarbonate,hence getting scratch won't gonna create ny issues...the screen is more vibrant and sturdy than that of 520 bcoz of the clearblack display and gorilla glass 2....it is the slimmest member of the lumia family and also one of the best looking too...bt the unibody design comes with a drawback which is the battery is non-removable by the user....other than that it is sturdy,good looking and slips into the pocket quite easily.n2) Battery:.my sister got this set today and after charging it 4 abt an hour we started this device(arnd 2:25 pm) and since then we r usin it lyk a maniac bt the battery is still around 80 % full...wireless charging is also a new feature.n3)UI : the User interface as usual is smooth and lag free lyk ny other W8 device(also got the KIDS CORNER),All thanks to the W8 proper optimization!!!!The super sensitive touch is also another plus point.Best things abt it is the exclusive apps and service.The resizable Live Tiles r quite a time saver and also gives a fresh look to ur device....W8 can do multitasking,which is quite similar to the IOS....it can also be controlled by voice only.n4)TELEPHONY:also quite same as the 620,the people hub is the best phone/social book out there,the loudspeaker is quite good,loud and clear in-call sound and the signal reception works jst f9...Messaging department is also excellent in Windows Phone..n5)MULTI MEDIA:when it comes to multi media it beats most of the sets within this range especially bcoz of the huge battery capacity..Video player in Windows Phone 8 has greatly improved codec support and u can u can easily upload videos from your computer via the USB mass storage mode(zune is no longer needed 4 this)....although it got no radio and the audio quality is average....n6)RAM : i hav seen many people complainin abt it's 512 mb RAM.....they r saying that nokia should hav put a 1 gb ram instead of it, bt the truth is THEY ACTUALLY DID in a prototype of 720,they put both the prototype and the original one side by side and guess wat??THE PERFORMACE WAS STRIKINGLY IDENTICAL!!!!U see the problem(although i dnt think it is a problem) is not with it's ram,actually it is with the 1 ghz dual core processor(although it is quite freakin good)....Bt then again pls dnt expect ny better processor at this price!!bt it sure is a bummer for some people out there...n7)BROWSING : The Internet explorer 10 is a major upgrade.It is fast,smooth and sociable athough looks the same as the old one...the Bing search is also vry useful..and the wifi works grt....so dnt expect ny problems in the browsing and the connectivity area.n8)OS:-many mi8 say that android is better bt i strongly disagree,it is an app centric OS and the optimization is not that grt...it drain the battery too fast,need more RAM and better processor to perform..thats not the case in W8 os..Many people mi8 say that u cant share videos via bluetooth bt thats nt the case...the GPS(free lifetime voice-guided navigation) works quite f9 evn when there is no data conNection..it sure dnt hav the sheer amounts of apps lyk in android or ios bt then again it got all the important apps and is gettin better day by day....n9)MS office:it is one of the key selling points of Windows Phone.It is flawless and the best u can get in a mobile phone.n10) Camera: I save the best thing for the last,evn though the camera is 6.7 mp(not 6.1 mp) and not a pureview,bt still it's a clear winner..that carl zeiss lens, F/1.9 aperture,the smart shoot lens,low light imaging(especially),camera apps,front camera(good 4 self potrait too) and video camera is too good 4 the price.....And the result speak 4 themself,i actually did'nt expected such result frm it..it evn beat the xperia z(m usin this device now),galaxy s3 and htc one x in low light imaging...nAll in all this is an amazing phone with a grt battery,design and camera...although it hav some flaws..bt then again human beings can't nvr be satisfied,and we will evn find flaws in god itself if we get a chance to :P Nyway this device hit all the sweet spots without wiping out ur pocket..So if u goin for a midrange phone with all the latest features and a grt camera then this mi8 be the one to go 4..
