Even though this model Lumia 720 is not sold here in the States, I bought mine unblocked and it works w/out a hitch. Just went down to ATT and had them change my SIM card to a mini sim and was talking in under 5 minutes. I wanted something that could do email, surf, big (not HUGE) screen, and be durable. I love the bright yellow colour!!
The phone itself is very nice, screen is big enough to surf w/out drawing too much attention like a Galaxy. Touch screen is easy, responsive, and clear even in daylight. I love the fact that there is a camera button, along w/screen button! About size, I do have to say that those (myself included) w/smaller hands may find the 720 a bit wider than desired, but hey, I'll trade the width w/wider viewing screen for slight discomfort using w/one hand. Worst case, use both hands.....
I like the toughness of Nokias, but would recommend getting a simple case for those unfortunate drops, that has already happened to me. While the gorilla glass did it job, there's still a slight slit down the right side of the screen. Screen is still completely usable/visable, but wish I had gotten a cover b4 the 720 hit the concrete, might not have any cracks now. But overall, phone seems to be durable.
About the actual functions of the phone, I'm very happy w/Windows 8. I had toyed w/it in the stores and even bought a Samsung Focus w/Windows phone 7 (did not like that UI), so was familiar b4 buying this 720. All I can say is that Windows 8 phones really are great phones! I'm still finding a few tricks/shortcuts, so it does involve spending time w/the program, but overall, it's not too difficult and rather fun to use/navigate. I would agree w/others that the whole Win8 format is the wave of the future, very handy having the same format/layout on my phone as is on my ultrabook. There are a few things I wished Win8 has/does that Android does, but the same can be said in the reverse, so it's a trade off.
There is ONE APP that sets Nokia apart from others, the Nokia maps (Here Maps), I absolutely LOVE THIS APP! Mainly b/c no internet/G3,4 connection is necessary! The bad side of Win8 is that there are not as many apps as Android or Apple, but hopefully, they will increase. Me personally, I get pretty much most of the apps I could ever want now.
Some side notes, camera takes good pic (and video) even in low light. Again, it's a phone, so I don't expect high quality, nor did I buy it for the camera, but overall good quality. Skype works flawlessly, clear and no problems w/connection. All the other things you'd expect in a phone work well too; calculator, alarm, ect. External microSD is a real positive!
My only negative is the battery. It drains rather fast if u use the phone heavily like surfing or playing games. I have set my apps to the lowest energy usage possible but the phone still sucks out energy. I've seen this complaint in other comments too, so I guess it's a Nokia thing. My older Nokias got numerous days on a charge, but this 720 won't last over 24 hours if I use it to surf while at work, waiting on train, etc. Light usage I get about 2 days, not too long considering, but I guess a big screen sucks power that much.....
Also, I wish the ringtone were louder w/a stronger vibrate. Older Nokias could be heard from many feet away, and vibration would startle you, but both are rather weak in this model.
So, all in all, I'm very satisfied w/this Lumia 720. It's a "simple" smart phone (no extra bells and whistles) which gives the average user everything he/she could want. Build quality is typical Nokia solid and Win8 is rather easy and fun to use. An excellent alternative to those looking for something other than the "Big 2" in smartphones.
The best part of this phone however is the display. You can literally have 180 degree viewing angles and the phone is super bright...it's definitely the best part of the phone and the display is better than any other display I've seen... I would rank it above the Lumia 930 in terms of viewing angles and brightness.
I bought this for use on T-Mobile's network and it works perfectly. It doesn't support 4G, but I was fine with 3G.
I only installed a handful of apps and it worked well - at the beginning. After 3 weeks the phone suddenly started to turn itself off in unexpected moments. Hanging up after a call - the phone just went black, would not even show any signs of charging. After several hours and a few reboot attempts I got the phone to wake up again later that day. Then the same happened several times more, only these times I could get it to boot a few minutes later with a soft reset. Looking through forums it seems this issue has been known for nearly a year in different device models, but it is still not fixed. I need a phone that works reliably.
The other big issue for me is the poor usability of the web browsers. The native Internet Explorer does not open links/tabs in the background and is limited by the number of tabs it can have open at the same time (around 6 tabs)! There is Nokia XPress which compresses the data and is generally faster (unless it has one of its server outages), but it also does not open links/tabs in the background. A third-party browser (UCBrowser) offers this functionality, but the rendering, convenience and speed are still short of Opera Mini. During these weeks I browsed the internet much less, because it turned out to be so cumbersome compared to Opera Mini on Android. And it used much, much more data as well.
I would have loved to keep the phone hardware itself, but I am glad I am back on Android now (Sony Xperia). The Xperia phone is reliable, I can tether my notebook again when I need to and browsing on Opera Mini is a joy.
