    Hi,
    My mum has a lumia 620,she wants a bigger display; so I have decided to buy her one of this 2 devices buy (820-720). I want them to have Wireless charging; so that's the reason that I'm not going to buy a lumia 625.
    Which of both do you think is better?
    lumia 820 = 1gb ram (maybe my mother doesn't need it), lot of personalisation with cases
    lumia 720 = better camera? better battery life?
    How is the battery perfomance compared between them?

    lumia 1320 is to much big hahaha, but I like it
    BTW; anyone buying a lumia 620?
    thank you :)

    I always try to bring up a comparison online...Nokia has a good one:

    Search results for Lumia 720, Lumia 620, Lumia 820 - Nokia

    Major benefit to the 720 is that you are adding screen size and it is the same weight as her current phone.

    The battery is actually bigger and rated better on the 720. Looks like no LTE on the 720? I will have to double check that...


    OHHHH yea, and the 720 only has HERE Drive, not HERE Drive+
    Why don't Lumia 720, Lumia 520 Windows Phones support HERE Drive+? Nokia explains. | Windows Phone Central

    We've first got to start with the difference between HERE Drive and HERE Drive+. The former provides turn-by-turn navigation in a single country or region, while the more advanced solution covers almost 100 countries. The selected country or region is calculated with the app launching for the first time, taking into account the country the inserted SIM card belongs to.

    Thank you, for me it's more beautiful the 820. But maybe the other is lighter. What about the camera quality?

    I think you could easily say the camera on the 820 is going to be better....since they are the same manufacture and it has more MPs, but I haven't read any reviews on either one.
    You think the 820 looks better than the 720? Personally, I like the simplicity behind the 720's circular camera spot, but neither one would push me away on looks.

    What are the costs in your area? I am not up on the prices since they aren't really readily available near me, but surely that has to come into play at some point :)

    The 720 IS lighter than the 820 (not 'maybe', it is, haha)

    620: 127g
    720: 128g
    820: 160g

    actually I've been led to believe the 720's camera is superior due to... something, I can't confirm it.

    The 720 has the best battery life of almost any Lumia, although I don't know how the 1520 stacks up.
    It has lower end internals and cannot easily have the battery swapped.

    The 820 is higher end, has a removable battery, albeit much smaller. (can be swapped out for a larger one)

    Take the 820 if you want 4G LTE and hate seeing "resuming" all the time, that's how wp handles it's RAM so well.

    Take the 720 if you want excellent camera and almost unmatched battery life with a very high quality display. You should notice that it's alot better than the 820 especially when it comes to colour quality.


    I know nothing about changeable covers or wireless charging.
