Nokia Lumia 720 camera options
The Nokia Lumia 720 is packed with surprises, but its biggest area of innovation is in one of Nokia’s key strengths - the camera. The main camera has an incredible f/1.9 aperture - that’s bigger than almost any high-end smartphone out there. A big aperture means more light getting into the camera and when this is combined with the same exclusive Carl Zeiss optics normally reserved for flagship smartphones, it packs quite a punch. The pictures taken with the Nokia Lumia 720 are clear and bright in lowlight, and dazzling in daylight. The Lumia 720 also packs Nokia’s best front-facing camera, which is sure to be popular for the growing phenomenon of self-portraits, or the ‘selfy’. Its wide-angle lens means there’s even room for your friends to fit in the picture. Fans of video calling will also be delighted with its Skype capabilities.
Nokia Lumia 720 phone features
As well as being the sleekest Lumia yet, the Lumia 720 is also the first to have curved glass at this price point and its polycarbonate unibody feels smooth and almost completely seamless. Fingerprints should be less of a problem too, as the 4.3” ClearBlack Gorilla Glass 2.0 display has easy to clean technology that also boosts visibility from different and wider angles. The Nokia Lumia 720 excels in the essentials with free global Here Maps and LiveSight ensuring you will never get lost. Here Drive for your home country is also included. Nokia Music brings unrivaled music discovery straight out of the box, with music streaming free of adverts or sign ups and the ability to upgrade to Nokia Music + for unlimited downloads and lyric streaming for only €3.99 a month.
