Snapdragon S4 in the case of WP8 and PowerVR SGX GPUs in iPhones. That's why Android is not as smooth as WP8 and iOS.

Funny to See all this hardware comparisons. I currently own a SG2 and my best friend has a Lumia 800. That is a WP7.8 with a single core chip and all... It makes my phone look like a super-slow... simple hardware comparisons count for nothing at all when the devices use a different OS

SGS2 is samsung's 2011 flagship smartphone while L720 is nokia's midrange smartphone. Can you understand the difference of flagship and mid range??

Seriously Lumia 720 only worth $249.

It has outdated hardware and even much lower spec. than Samsung Galaxy S2 which was released 2 years ago.

For example:

Internal Memory
===============
Lumia 720: 8 GB
Galaxy S2: 16 GB


Camera:
=======
Lumia 720: 6.1 MP
Galaxy S2: 8 MP

CPU:
====
Lumia 720: 1 GHz Dual Core
Galaxy S2: 1.2 GHz Dual Core

video:
======
Lumia 720: 720p
Galaxy S2: 1080p

Why Nokia always used outdated hardware?

For 101 Rupees, SGS2 is a way better deal.

> In reply to JBird @ 2013-04-14 21:12 from fsg2 - click to read- Dual-sim: True, it's actually a great feature that's missing on a lot of phones these days. It's a shame.
- Bigger display: Yes - and: worse image quality, lower PPI, narrower viewing angles, lower contrast. Not everyone would appreciate the extra bulkiness either.
- "Bigger" RAM: Maybe because the JB UI benefits from this, or because the "gpu" they utilize features less video buffer than seen in other smart phone cpu+gpu architectures?
- Wi-fi hotspot seems to have been available since WP7. Nokia beta app is available for DLNA.
- Better camera: More MP yes, but more blurry and not as light sensitive. 1080p recordings looks like upscaled 720p.

Mind you - I don't have a preference towards Android or WP or IOS. It's only a stupid phone.

Add 101 rupees and you can get a better SGS2

Why not Lumia 720?
-only 512MB of RAM. Many apps (Modern combat 4 for example) need more.
-Navigation only for India.
-Due to low Ram and resolution might not be upgradeable to WP9. WP8 support ends next year.

Why SGS2:
Better processor, more RAM, more internal memory 16GB(720 has only 8GB-you can't install apps on the sdcard, "Other" space takes tens of GB of memory for nothing), upgradeable to ICS, better screen, all aps available. Google offers caching for offline navigation now.

Galaxy Grand Duos has way better specs and its for 350$.
-Dual Sim
-Bigger display.
-Bigger RAM.
-WiFi hotspot + DLNA.
-Better Camera and bigger MP and 1080P recording.
-And the most important its Android so it has more Games and Apps and much smoother, WP8 started to have lags and stutters after 1 month of usage.
Nokia + WP = failure.
