call quality average at best, my first smart phone
7 August 2014
Summary: it keeps locking up after being in stand bye for multiple hour sessions, so far only removing and reinstalling the battery will make it wake up, i updated to win 8.1, maybe that's it? i'll be spending some time at nokia help sight to see if i can find a fix...
Summary: my note2 fell on the ground and become dead (crack on the screen), so I decide to buy a new phone for me, after searching, I try to challange myself with windows phone although my friend told me a WP, for all product, will frustrate you without any doubt. To be honest, I like WP system, it is more straightforward, simple and easy to manage, at least for me. the system runs without any stuck when you try to slide or touch. I also like the pattern in the main screen.
Summary: I like Windows Phone, but since this is the Euro version I can not use it to it's full 3G speeds (900/2100). This was my fault for not asking the seller the version. I kept the phone as a backup. Since this is the low end of the WP you do not get the all the features like the more costly ones. It would be nice to have a flash with the camera. Just remember to check with your provider as to make sure you get the right version.
Lacking obvious features that everybody (at least the buyers of this phone) seems to ignore

Summary: The hardware part is fine but the software is lacking of some very important features like true multitasking, notification center, only one possible launcher (it is not interchangeable), and lack of apps (in comparison to IPhone and Android). Not having these features affects the overall user experience of this phone.
Conflicted: Feeling a little misled, but the product works fine

Summary: Average review not for the device itself, which is actually a fine smartphone. I was upgrading from the HTC HD7, I wanted to get a WP8 device, and the Lumia 520 was specced appropriately for my use. The price here seemed reasonable for a last-gen phone, and although I assumed I wouldn't be getting a retail-packaged device, I did kinda expect a brand new OEM-packaged US unit.
Excerpt: lumia 720 pros: -good camera -nice design and color options. -value for money. cons: -Low RAM(512 MB). More detailed review on Nokia Lumia 720, visit http://mynokialumia.com/nokia-lumia-720-an-in-budget-high-performance-camera-phone/.
Summary: Was good phone when new but lately been flicking between apps and the noise when on the phone and it happens makes the call impossible to hear because the noise when it's flicking is loud don't know what is going on.
Summary: Phone is built of seemingly good quality materials. Touch screen is nice. Camera is ok. Mic for videos is poor. Operating system is pretty rubbish. App store hardly ever works. Wont let me connect to internet a lot of the time via wifi or 3g. Overall, nice quality but extremely temperamental.
Summary: Decided on a change having owned IPhone's 3 & 4 and a Samsung S2 so opted for the Nokia Lumia 720 which has favorable reviews. It all started well and to be honest I was very impressed. Great quality feel to it and Windows was easy to use and fast; but then it decided to develop a mind of its own and hop uncontrollably between apps regardless of my intervention! The only way I could access the phone was to action a factory reset.
