The Nokia Lumia 720 is made for the socially savvy crowd

I got to participate in the Nokia Lumia 720 Test Drive for one week. It is not often I get to review gadgets as these are always reserved for the tech bloggers. What excited me is the Nokia Lumia is so pretty, affordable and so useful for my social media needs.

During the one week test drive, I let my friends tinker with my Nokia Lumia 720 review unit just so I can get their feedback. And all the time, I get a lot of “wow, this is so pretty” . Positioned as a mid-range smartphone priced at an SRP of P14,590 , the pretty new Nokia Lumia 720 is sleek, light, and a vibrant looking smartphone . This Nokia Lumia 720 is powered by a powerful 2,000 mAH battery. Weighing only 128 grams, this Windows Phone 8 device is definitely going to be a Nokia best-seller.

I love it and plan to buy one.


If you are social media savvy, then the Nokia Lumia 720 is made for you. It is so easy to share . The front facing camera has a wide angle lens and an HD-quality 1.3 megapixel. It also comes with a Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia’s largest f1.9 aperture, thus making it a breeze to snap stunningly clear images, by day or by night! I just have to get used taking photos as the button is in the bottom side of the phone.

Another Lumia experience is the HERE experience especially if you are looking for places.

The HERE experience is present on both the Nokia Lumia 720 and Nokia Lumia 520. Both models come pre-installed with a full HERE suite of applications including HERE Maps and HERE Drive. With Nokia HERE, no need to surf just to look for the best restaurant in the area or just simply looking for a desired location.

Nokia HERE brings a platform that integrates both Maps and Drive to offer users an outstanding experience on the road, or by foot. How useful right? Most of all, HERE maps and HERE drive can be used without Data or WiFI connection.

At the press launch on Friday, all of us got to try the HERE experience. What is even more amazing is that charging is equally fun for the Nokia Lumia 720. Just snap on a wireless charging shell and simply place them on the Nokia Wireless Charging Stand or Nokia Wireless Charging Plate and your device charges up.
