Need some help and comments here. Price of 808 pureview and lumia 720 are more of less in same bracket now.
So which will be a good bargain? Go for 808 or 720?
I am not that much into apps and games. But need a good camera, good navigation, Office email setup and some basic apps like whatsapps etc!!!
Please share your thought what to buy.
I have been waiting for Nokia EOS to release on windows OS which I will definatly buy but there are no news coming on its release as of now and Pureview 808 stock is getting depleted.
Read in a review on Flipkart that the phone heats up after 10 mins of calls. Users of this phone , please confirm

Grand is way behing, in fact galaxy grand was just a trick by samsung people which... moreActually low end phones wont give you a 4.3 inch screen so numbers and alphabets are a bit messy to operate with gloves but l720 offers a gr8 screen so all the alphabets and numbers are evenly spaced out so things are much easier to operate with sharp or blunt tools,but do not operate those low end phones with your keys as they do not offer gorilla glass 2 scratch resistance,he,he,he....
Anyways i congratulate you for buying the right phone.....
Ankit9, 25 Apr 2013Hi Dear, Every phone in the current market has its pros and cons.Yes , ram of 512 Mb for t... moreThanks Ankit for the for the reply...But my question still remains does it support OFFICE apps...like OUTLOOK mail etc.. it is question for lumina 720 and lumina 920
When it was windows 7.5 all the fuss was about angry birds and now on wp8 its about temple run.
Please trollers and ignorants there are many people who desire-excellent telephony,swift and lag free OS and Stablility in their device and not just games.
Wake up if you want games go buy PS3.
Microsoft has an excellent support and values the consumers (for now though) we are sure they will come up with some aid with regds to the fuss of the year Temple run for 512 mb. Perhaps the goodness of wp8 lies in its OS-any device you buy it will still be slick not like Android.
BTW-I use andorid.
OFFICE APPS, 25 Apr 2013Hi Guys,
I am an IT Professional.. need by phone to sync with my MS OFFICE...I have never u... moreHi Dear,
Every phone in the current market has its pros and cons.Yes , ram of 512 Mb for this Lumia is a con , but again this phone is not priced too high for 1 GB of ram along with 6.7MP cam with 1.9f aperture,good decent front cam , 2.0 Gorilla glass , 2000 mAh Battery , sturdy plastic matte finished body, 9mm thickness , very good side angled viewing, Microsoft WP 8 with Office , some great customized apps ,and many other great features which you may not find in a phone of this price range .
Since you are an IT Professional , good battery backup , MS Office support , and a great Internet explorer may suffice your needs . But if you can spend a double of 720's price Lumia 920 could be a great phone to buy .. Please go through other options available in the market too and choose the one which best suites your needs .

Leave s4 even s3's cam way better than this. I think u only used nokia camera. Can any nokia beat xperia z,xperia s,xperia sl,xperia v etc... So think before cmntng.l720 may be big for u but not for others
Well... i bought it the same day when it came into market in india. initially i was very happy with the phone. nice looking, cool camera and os is splendid. then as time passed by (just about 7-8 days or so) i am now not liking it as much as i did before. i had used samsung focus with windows phone 7/7.8 earlier and the windows phone 8 experience is not so different than it. just for say addition of bluetooth and 2-3 odds things here and there i dont think that there is much improvement.
the apps (though few and very limited) are amazing to look at. really love them. but the gaming department is way behind android and ios. i have an ipad so i dont want to talk much about the games as ipad serves me well, but for other people it does matters. i am sure more will come as the time goes by.
i just dont know why is microsoft so slow with adding features to the os?? android is so quick with it. though i love winph os and android not so much. i want winph and lumia to succeed but the things are extremely slow here. plus the app developers seems not to be interested in creating apps for this os. this is such a wonderful os but..............
i miss so many apps i used on other platform like pinterest, better facebook app with full functionality, thumb and so on. but again it depends on the developers and not on nokia or microsoft.
the most annoying thing i find from nokia especially is the repeated #2instawithlove that is so freaking crazy and unnecessary. its getting on my nerves now. do we the owners of lumia/winph os just require instagram!!!
and who can forget the 512mb ram. though the os is fast but yes at time the "loading" screen shows while opening almost every app. not a big deal but yes its there.
no proper call log. not even the call duration. small things, but at times you need to know about the duration.
the notifications is a mess or a joke whatever you want to call it. if you miss one, you are left out completely if you dont have a live tile.
i am sure microsoft can do better but its getting too late now.
i love my lumia 720, but i am afraid that i might not keep it for a longer period. maybe a month or so. i will return back to windows phone when the whole package will become a bit more polished (more features and apps/games too).
i might just get some android again :-( which i absolutely hate to be frank.
It seems the trollers' main con for this beauty is 512MB RAM, a few weeks ago I sold my desktop computer it was running games smoothly on 256MB RAM.
who has told people that 512MB RAM is not enough for a phone???
Wp8's multimedia experience will never catch up with android.we not only want design but true value for our money.for that wp8 fails in big time.it is not a smartphone.it is a usual multimedia phone.
Rabbi, 25 Apr 2013lumia 6.1 mp camera and samsung 3.15 mp camera same. but lumia net speed suprbbrowse the internet and see lumia 720 camera beating all available samsung's phone cameras including galaxy S4. See the below link for reference
Can somebody who is using windows phone tell me if the free apps and games which come with advertisements require a data connection all the time? I use asha 303 and the free applications require data connection every time to download the ads. It is really annoying as it is not possible to be connected to wifi at all times, plus its a huge battery drain. Thanks in advance.
[deleted post]sometimes I wonder whether it's android that is good or it's samsung's cheap phones, because Motorola, htc, sony, lg etc aren't doing good
