    So I will give WP a second chance. I have I bad experience on a Lumia 800 before ended up returning it after 7 mos.

    I just got my red Lumia 720 today at Nokia Store, SM Annex branch. The clerk said earlier that they are the only Nokia Store who have a stock. Price is as advertised in NokiaPH facebook page. I paid for the extra P750 accidental damage with one year extended manufacturers warranty.

    First Impressions:

    1. Device is smooth as expected.
    2. Camera is mind blowing for it's price. It will make you regret having an Android on same price range.
    3. Feels so light in my hands. I want it to gain weight but hate to have a case so I get the charging backplate when it comes available.
    4. Seems like it stutters when navigating device setting. Are this black loading screens normal?

    If your from Philippines post your experiences here.

    Got a red one too at Nokia Megamall. I wish I got the extended warranty though. Gorgeous piece of slab for the price! I love the weight on my hands.

    Anyway, the loading screens seem normal, and they aren't that frequent. In fact I think they're the most non-distracting loading screens based from my experience on iOS and Android.

    Cool. I hope it feels like the 808, the red color looks like it matches the red of 808. Matte red looks great. Feel free to post pics of the back or other pics of it...lol :)

    Mabuhay Kabayan!

    I did not know this exists until I searched Lumia 710 Philippines and viola!

    I'm glad you gave it another chance. I started with Lumia 800 and got hooked ever since. I never liked Android because its just a cheap imitation of Apple's iOS and Samsung is not the brand for me. I had a couple of Samsung consumer products that frequently breaks so I never looked backed.

    I'm enjoying my Lumia 600 but this is very tempting but I have decided to keep my Lumia 600 for now. I like the idea of having to change its appearance via exchangeable back covers (wala pa nga lang : ( )

    I really like what is happening now as Nokia is slowly getting up from its slump but I've always asked myself why Smart and Globe is not carrying this. I'm sure there is some lobbying or politics going on. Samsung has this strategy of saturating the market with their products so you have little to no choice but Samsung.

    Let's hope that the blue update will fix some of the issues of WP8.

    Good decision. My device is a week now, bought mine in the 8th. None a single random reboot.

    I want you to check your main camera. I have noticed that there is a gap on between the glass ring. Tiny fibers can get through it. I'll advise you not to let cloth touch it or just dont clean your camera..period.

    Where did you buy yours? Mine has some lag time (loading screen) on some apps or settings at times, not consistent though. Couldn't see the gap you mentioned, maybe a factory defect?

    Yes, still is, especially the last few rows, doing their own magic haha.

    Are you in prepaid? APN settings are suppose to be there when you insert a sim. HSDPA/HSDPA+ will depend on your location. APN is mandatory when you are using internet sharing.

    Smart

    APN settings for Mobile
    • username: (blank)
    • password: (blank)
    • APN name: internet(prepaid/postpaid)

    You can also use Smartbro sim, APN name: smartbro

    APN settings for Wireless Dongle
    • username: (blank)
    • password: (blank)
    • APN name: smartbro


    Globe Telecom
    APN settings for Mobile and Wireless Dongle
    • username: (blank)
    • password: (blank)
    • APN name: (postpaid) internet.globe.com.ph / (prepaid) http.globe.com.ph


    Sun Cellular
    APN settings for Mobile
    • username: (blank)
    • password: (blank)
    • APN name: minternet

    APN settings for Wireless Dongle
    • username: (blank)
    • password: (blank)
    • APN name: fbband

    Strange... better have it checked in Nokia care. They will replace it if found defective.

    I'm fine with the gap..I already have a good hardware except for that one. With my experience regarding replacements it is hit or miss. As long as no random reboot I'm fine.
