Nokia is a popular Finnish phone company and has been previously known for durability and increased battery life of phones. When it entered the smartphone market, it teamed up with Microsoft Windows for mobile and has been launching phones with their OS. The Nokia Lumia 720 is one of the newest phones that are similar to its flagship Lumia 920. The little brother is quite similar in looks and many features, lacking only the strikingly high price tag. Nokia has recently announced a number of low- to mid-range phones to try and capture the masses. The phone is being touted as one of the best phones for its price range. The phone sports a 4.3-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, with approximately 217 ppi, which is a decent enough screen resolution. The phone comes with the standard Live Tiles format from the Windows 8.

The Lumia 720 comes with 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 512 MB RAM and 8 GB internal storage space that is upgradeable to 64 GB. It also offers Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for protection purposes. The phone is available with a 6.7 MP primary camera with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus and LED flash. It also has a 1.3 MP secondary camera with a resolution of 1280 x 960. The company offers many camera features such as touch focus, landscape orientation, auto and manual exposure, auto and manual white balance, still image editor, full screen viewfinder, Cinemagraph lens, Bing vision, Smart Shoot lens and panorama lens. The Smart Shoot lens allows the users to merge two different photos to create a perfect shot, which comes handy, if you don’t like having to tell people pose in front of the camera. The phone is slick and thin bar phone with slightly curved edges. The phone sports a 3.5mm jack on the top, with camera button, volume button and the sleep/wake button on the right hand side. The back also three tiny holes for a Wireless Charging cover, which fits on the back of the device. The phone is customizable with changing shells, making it easier to mix and match the phone with various different colors. The phone has been announced for the Australian market, with launch dates yet to be released for the rest of the world.

The Nexus devices in general have an advantage over other devices in that the Android in the Nexus devices is pure. I.e. the Android does not have any manufacturer or wireless carrier modifications to it, such as a custom graphical user interface. The Android also has an unlockable bootloader to allow further development and end-user modification, all of which is usually blocked on other Android smartphones.

The Nexus 4 is Google's fourth Nexus-branded Android smartphone. It was produced in collaboration with LG Electronics. The phone features a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM, 8 or 16 GB of internal storage, front facing 1.3 megapixel camera and an 8 megapixel rear camera and a micro-SIM card tray. The phone runs on the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system, which was launched with the phone. The phone also features a new camera technology, called the Photo Sphere. This allows one to take 360 deg Panorama shots.
