    Lumia 720, best OS experience with best camera and at low price. 800*480 resolution enough for any user, this version will not outdate within 5 years. WP8 has CLASS, apps are enough and acording to requirement.

    BTW i came across one more low cost and good looking Windows Phone 8 smartphone, The Huawei Ascend W1. Don’t know the release date for india but it will be priced between 10k to 15k ( will compete with the lumia 520). Specs – 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4-inch 480 x 800 display, 4GB of internal storage, 5MP rear camera and a 1,950mAh battery.

    I spent some time with the lumia 720. This is what i felt.
    It will fill the gap between the Lumia 520 and the Lumia 820.
    The LCD screen is amazing, and definitely better than what’s on the Lumia 820.
    The dock for wireless charging with accessories like the new wireless car charger is new.
    Micro SIM and micro SD built into the body, and even better part is, they are replaceable, just like the other Lumias.
    With a huge battery, as large as the Lumia 920, rated at 2000 mAH, the device is expected to easily last for a day or more without a charge.
    The camera lives up to the hype, especially for a phone at a mid-end price range.
    Overall it can be the best affordable lumia if the price is set around 20k.
