    Ok,
    We all know that MS/Nokia will screw up again with the 730, but how ?
    What feature will be cut out ?
    What basic feature that even the 520 had will not make it into the 730 ?

    No glance screen
    No dedicated camera button
    Low resolution screen (no 720p)
    No clear black

    What else could they do to screw up another phone like they did with all x30 devices ?

    don't be so pessimistic, you could've at least made it more tongue in cheek!

    realistically, I'd say they might overprice it.

    Whatever happens at this point, you can't really blame Nokia.

    The price of 730 would be around $200-225, that's a good price I think

    They would reduce battery life from former Nokia Lumia 720.nd remove clear black display.along with introduce at price of 20000 in India to compete with Samsung or Sony mid range.by the time whole Indians would have gone to Xiaomi or other Chinese oem who appear to give good bang for buck devices with no services.just a thought.

    Overpricing could happen but it would be far worse if they made another of this bad decisions like:
    Lets have a 5MP FF camera but lets cut out Clear Black, 720p and glance screen support...i mean that will happen for sure, that what Nokia/MS does with the whole x30 series.

    Even their flagship 930 only got a inferior and buggy display with no glance support.

    No, in India 730 would be available at around ₹14000-16000, 830 would be available at around 20000. Also xiaomi is doing well, but many people have reported problems in the phone, this was in the times of India 2 days back!

    They could use a FWVGA display, give it a small battery, put 512MB Ram, or design it poorly.

    Lumia 730 (worst case scenario)

    4.7" FWVGA clearblack display (So the pixels match the tiles)
    Qualcomm 8626 (LTE and MHz are overrated)
    512 MB RAM (All the efficient games support it, anyway)
    8 GB storage (It is 2014, use the cloud)
    6.7 MP back camera with LED
    5 MP front camera
    2000 mAh battery
    No proximity or ambient light sensor
    No magnetometer (Compass)
    No glance
    Thick with huge bezels

    Best case scenario ( Likely)

    4.7" 720p clearblack display
    Qualcomm 8928
    1 GB RAM
    8 GB storage + microSD
    6.7 MP back camera with LED
    5 MP front camera
    2420 mAh battery
    Proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, compass, glance
    Thin and light with small bezels

    This should not a a what-if thread.
    1GB RAM is already confirmed.

    Its about things we dont know about like Glance Screen, No proximity sensor ect.

    730 would be having 6.1 mp camera not 6.7

    It takes hardware to support features.
    The question is what production price the 730 is going to be manufactured to and what the hardware will support that price.
    Features are supplied from the bottom up, not the top down.

    the 930 didn't get a glance capable display due to cost, then you'd complain about how the 930 was overpriced. the display itself isn't inherently inferior or buggy from what i can tell from reviews and threads around here.

    6.1 comes from blurry photos and the fact that 1 looks like 7.

    I believe Nokia was lying about the icon/930's lack of glance. LG claimed the G2 was the first phone with display memory. And if it was for cost reasons, why did the 620 have glance?

    no i'm saying it was the cost of the display panel itself, i have been led to believe OLED panels that are 5" with display memory could've cost too much.

    The 620 happened to have an LCD display, its a different size, different spec, heck, maybe even different manufacturer.
    I don't think its a suitable apples to apples comparison.

    but do continue, the evil corporations will always screw the little man.

    LCDs use more power with only some pixels enabled than AMOLED. Also, can they not put a warning stating that glance uses battery quickly, or disable always-on glance?

    What do you mean disable always-on glance? You have the choice to turn it off, turn it to peek mode or turn it to always-on.

    Nokia won't screw anything up as Nokia has nothing to do with what Microsoft Mobile does. The "Nokia" name on Microsoft Mobile's phones make those phones as much a Nokia phone as me drawing an Apple on the back of a Galaxy S5 makes the S5 an iPhone.

    Probably by reading your nonsensical post ...

    Besides although phones going forward may bear the Nokia logo, it doesn't mean they are being manufactured by Nokia.

    People need to understand Nokia still exists, (they have the option to re-enter the market after Dec 2015) and only the Nokia D & S division got purchased by MS which later was subsequently renamed to Microsoft Mobile Oy.
