What disappoints me:

- Lack of 1GB RAM (for Lumia 720)
- Lumia 720 and 820 the same size
- Lumia 520 BIGGER than 620. (what are they thinking?)

I was looking forward for the 720 to be a 4.0" phone with 1GB RAM and with at least a secondary camera.

Now the 920 and 820 is too big and too expensive, the 720 is a bit big and a bit weak, the 620 is a bit small and a bit weak, and the 520 has the perfect dimensions, but is also a bit weak, and doesn't have a front camera.

But if I had to pick one I'll go for the Lumia 720. At least the battery inside it is stellar.

> In reply to [deleted post]:))). Coming and doing some cleaning, ha?:))). Joke. But for real now. This site is full of "rich" kidos. They all have 100 gadgets on-line and just one lousy device in real life. It is amazing how much unaware and hypocrisy can some people expose. And if they would have at least known something...

> In reply to X @ 2013-02-25 11:01 from iEP6 - click to readNokia 808 has a way better camera than Lumia 920(despite OIS on Lumia) and both have a way better and a slightly better camera(despite the big white ballance issue on Lumia) than what's now on the market and CAN be compared to them. If you give me Sony NEX 5R, the third generation NEX-5 and saying Pureview 808 is lower than a compact you don't know anything about anything. It's a little there: NEX 5R has the APSC sensor(bigger one between two, to give you additional hints) and because it has interchangeable lenses it's NOT a compact camera!

If you cared to look at that link I gave, you would have noticed that people who actually do that for a living(review cameras) were impressed about 808 and only an(how to call you if I were to believe you having iph5 and s3?) ifandroid would say "As a camera phone, the iPhone 5 is the best compromise"-that's the proof of you knowing nothing about photography(808 as a smartphone may not be on everyone's taste, but its camera is brilliant, period)...go home kid, or write on Vertu topics...

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-02-25 11:39 from mjPY - click to readI have both the SGS 3 and the iPhone 5. So I can afford more than a cheap 808 that gets only greyish photos. Yes, the 920 gets good photos in low light(not so much in bright light), but it's problems come from WP8(not sure the "Other" space problem is solved, and well, apps.
As a camera phone, the iPhone 5 is the best compromise(apps, battery life, photo quality). But for really nice photos, a real camera is better always than anything a phone can have. BTW I have the NEX 5R(that's why I mention it), and I have a real DSLR camera too, but it doesn't fit in a pocket;), so affording any kind of device is no a problem for me.

Ignorant people cannot see a good device in their hands, but instead follow salespeople's advice, advertising and popularity. Even reviews are not even reliable. Nokia does not need hype, their design/hardware/software makes them distinctive and their products speaks for themselves.
