Great Phone & Love Windows,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nokia Lumia 720 Sim Free Windows Smartphone - Black (Electronics)
Being a previous appleite and dipped my toe into android waters I wanted something that was a) cheaper than an iphone but b) wasnt as glitchy as android. So I went for a Nokia Lumia 720 because it runs on windows.
In respect to the phone: its a nice size though not "small", buttons seem secure and easy to operate, nice bright screen, call quality good, comfortable to use, excellent battery (I get a couple of days before charger), sound quality on the music player is good and seems to match the iphone, and is a great price.
In respect to windows, as its a closed operating system like iOS it works seamlessly with lots of integration between social network sites and the phone, I love the live tiles- its ice to have photo contacts on the home page but e.g. next calendar appointments also show on the live tile, set up with emails and facebook is very simple, nice looking phone at great price for what you get.
To be fair I'll also mention slight negatives: there arent millions of apps like with iphones but this is improving all the time. But there are apps for most things (though not Sky Go which is disappointing), You can also get a cheaper Lumia phone such as the 520 or 620; smaller screens but great value. Apps take a millisecond longer to load than with an iphone but nothing drastic.
I would thoroughly recommend getting this phone on sim free - over the next 24 months comparing it to an iphone contract I will be paying around a third to a half of the cost.
Great phone, love the operating system and great value for money.
