Lumia 720 is a pared down 920 Video Transcript
-Hello. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona where the Nokia stand and we're taking a look at the Lumia 720. Now, the best way to think about the Lumia 720 is a sort of light version of the 920 because it feels broadly the same and the design is very, very similar, but the specs are just a little bit more modest. You got a 1-gigahertz dual-core processor. It has 4.3-inch screen, has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, so not quite as high as the 720p on the 920. It still looks quite good, though. It's very bright colorful screen, so that's a positive sign certainly. On the back, there's the option to get wireless charging cover, so there's no wireless charging built-in, but you can get this optional cover for it, which means you'll be able to put it on a docking station and charge the phone without plugging it in. Around the back is a 6.7-megapixel camera and there's a front-facing camera as well. There's 8 gigabytes of onboard storage, and brilliantly, there's a micro-SD card slot. So, if that's not enough space, you can bump it up yourself. As savvy tech fans, we'll have already noticed the Lumia 720 is running Windows Phone 8 which is Microsoft's mobile operating system, is very colorful. You got these live tiles on the front, feels very smooth [unk] and Nokia has made a real effort to stick some of its own apps on here to try and really sell this particular brand of Windows Phone. So, you get things like Nokia Music which streams pre-made music playlist to your phone. You also get all of Nokia's Maps applications. Nokia is quite big into mapping and navigation, so [unk] things like HERE City Lens, HERE Maps, and HERE Drive+ which is in Beta at the moment. And you also get some camera tweaks like Nokia's various lenses and the Cinemagraph app which creates a still image with a part of the picture that moves. It's a little bit like the Cinemagram app that you might be familiar with if you own a rival operating system. So, that's pretty standard so far. There's not a lot that this phone offers over other Windows Phone devices, but it does have one trick of its sleeve and that's the price. This phone is going to be on sale for 249 euros, which I personally think is quite a good deal for a phone that feels every bit is sleek and speedy is what a couple of years ago you've been paying a lot more money for, and certainly, Windows Phone is doing better in the budget market. Some recent Windows Phones that are a bit cheaper have been very good-- very good performance, so that is quite exciting. I'm excited about the low price. This phone should be out before the summer. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is the Nokia Lumia 720.
