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.

Another one of company’s newest smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 620. Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it. The phone is a decent enough piece of merchandise, especially considering its price. It features a 3.8-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual-core 1 GHz Krait and a 512 MB RAM. It has an 8 GB internal storage capacity and an external storage expandable up to 64 GB.

The Nokia Lumia 620 has a 5 MP camera with auto focus and LED flash, as well as a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The phone like most of the phones under the Lumia brand is available in a variety of bright colors, such as lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, and the usually white and black. In fact, the phone comes with back panels in these colors allowing the user to change the phone’s color every few days.

However, the phone has been criticized as looking a bit plasticky and cheap. The phone is also a bit on the heavier side. Another issue with the phone, in fact all the Windows phones, is that it comes with the Internet Explorer browser built-in, which can be quite lagging at times, and the phones do not support any other browsers. Furthermore, the collection of apps available on Windows is quite limited, especially as compared to the apps available for Android and Apple.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the Nokia website, techradar.com, and GSMArena.com.
