    Its not like there is something specific for the Lumia 720, all depends on what you like.... the only thing that i might say, sadly, you have to get Nokia Camera, search on how to get it.

    For initial settings keep the touch sensitivity at normal....glance on peek...explore settings menu and the phone itself ll guide you with all the best customized settings as per your needs...you can download Microsoft s gdr 3 software update if your phone comes with Amber preinstalled..search this forums for all the info regarding Amber and all other updates and for pretty much everything related to windows phone.....

    Yes it is.

    Its good enough for everyday use. Didn't feel necessary to go for any third party browser.

    try changing ur phone region to US, restart the phone, try the steps mentioned in proxy trick.
    1. Change the proxy (103.13.29.118 and port 8888)
    2. Goto store, nokia collection and look for nokia camera.
    3. Select Install
    4. If the download progresses well and good. If it doesnt and shows an error 'Attention required..', disable the proxy, go to store, tap on the download, and then restart the download of the app.
