Your choice of smartphone says almost as much about you as does your preference in wristwatches. If style and keeping up to speed on the social scene tick your boxes, then Nokia’s new Windows 8 handset – the Nokia Lumia 720 – could be for you. Its best features are its quality cameras. The main 6,7 MP camera features Carl Zeiss optics and an f1.9 aperture lens, to deliver great snaps even in low light. The front-facing camera boasts an HD-quality 1.3 MP wide-angle lens, making it perfect for taking group portraits with friends or making video calls via Skype. Viewing your photographic efforts is a pleasure thanks to a 107 mm ClearBlack WVGA LCD screen that’s been built using an innovative lamination process to provide wider viewing angles. Software enhancements help enhance clarity in bright conditions, too, and the touchscreen is sensitive enough for nail or glove use.
Other features include 8 GB mass memory (expandable up to 64 GB), 1,0 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and turn-by-turn navigation. Price: about R5 700. Visit www.nokia.co.za
