The disappointing factor is the 512 MB RAM which means that games like Temple Run cannot be even installed as they need 1GB of RAM. Voice quality during calls is excellent and the loudspeaker output is also good. The phones supports a microSIM and has expandable memory slots.

Design and Build Design has always been the strength of Nokia and with Nokia Lumia 720 the company has outdone itself. It inherits the solid build from Lumia 920 and packs it into a smaller package but a perfect fitting one. The right edge has the volume controller, power/lock button and a dedicated camera button is present towards the bottom of the smartphone. Top edge holds a microSim and headphone jack while the left side includes the microSD slots and a microUSB port. Its weighs less compared to Lumia 920 and as per as the design and feel are concerned this is the phone that Nokia’s flagship product should have been.
