    Thank you for your review.

    The only thing I find strange, is listing 512 MB RAM as a negative because you can't play every game. You bought that device, knowing it had only 512 MB. It is made very clear that devices with 512 MB RAM will not run every game. Almost anyone on this website could have told you that. In return for not being able to play every game, you got the device at a cheaper price! That was your choice to make. Listing that as a negative, is like buying a bicycle, and then stating that it is bad because it doesn't fly.
    I am of a different opinion, if one needs mobile gaming opt for a console (psp/gameboy etc.,), mobiles aren't meant for gaming tbh.

    I understand what you mean but my device makes very different noise, like an old wooden chair.

    I just realized that the Galaxy s3 is cheaper in Germany than this phone. ??

    Which one do you think has the better front facing camera, I mean it says that the s3 has 1.9mp on the front.
    And they made such a big fuss about the front facing cam in the Lumia.

    Hard to say. Lumia 720 has wide angle front facing camera and GS3 doesn't.

    Btw how much is GS3 in Germany? It's 465 euros here in Sweden, around 110 euros more expensive than Lumia 720.

    Someone should do a "Pictures/Videos taken with your 720!" thread already

    The GS3 is being sold for 385 at a major electronics market in Germany called Media Markt, in a print advertisement it said 333 though :/

    So a price of ~370 for the Lumia 720 would make absolutely no sense :)

    Through WPC..you need the extras+info system settings update. I don't have the QR code, just click below link:

    extras+info | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Do you mean just go to app store and download it? Does it work for other country (Australia)?
    I thought Nokia lumia 720 comes with storage check out of the box.

    Yes..Nokia small patch updates are done as an app update through store. OP is from Italy and I'm from Philippines so it should be available also to your region. Mine don't have the storage check out of the box others do, first batch IHMO..

    You need version 1.8.1.140, latest.

    Well, I was looking for some "real" impressions of the new Nokia Lumia 720, 'cause it's really my phone.

    I'm happy that they come from a fellow italian boy :)

    So, I think I'm going to buy my new 720 *now*.

    Yellow is good, right? :)

    Got it! :) So yellow-ish... Sadly I think that my extra+info is REALLY old, cause it's 1.1.36.19.

    @AlexanderPD, you told in your review that on the second day you got some updates: which ones, in detail(ish)? 'cause I don't know if I have to be really nervous waiting for the updates ;)

    you just need to wait for extra+info update OR download the new "Nokia Pusher" app: Check to see if you have up-to-date Nokia system apps with LUMIA pusher | Windows Phone Central
    and manually update it :) gratz for your new phone :D

    By the way: I tried Nokia Pusher, I got this and I think that the two are related, 'cause when I uninstalled it I got no more problem with my phone.

    i'm gonna buy the lumia 720 shortly here in india also (its for 17,300 on saholic or ebay).....lumia 720 can run asphalt 7 which is twice graphic intensive than temple run....even wpcentral told that the dev. CAN make it work with an update if he wants....as for other games, i'm not gonna buy any for more than a dollar (have a psp) so modern combat 4 or spiderman don't bother me and by using a 512 mb ram device u will be utilising the most efficient feature of wp that is fluidity even in a mid-range phone which most android mid range (even some high end) don't deliver.
    thats why nokia cut that cost and used it in camera and design.IMO its the most (forgot the word for paisa vasool in english) out there

    How can the lumia 720 cost 355 Euros when i got it for $350 here in the US?
    It should be 267 eruros. Thats almost 200 Euro cheaper than SGS3.

    We got dumbass prices in Europe.

    Lumia 720 is $450, Galaxy S3 and Nexus 4 same price. Lumia 920 $550 and Galaxy S4 $840.

    Wow! If Lumia 720 is same price as SG3/ Nexus 4, i'd go for the Nexus 4. 2GB Android 4.2.2 SmartPhone with no TouchWiz Overlay/Manufacturer crap. Nexus are generally very smooth. Though the camera is not as good as SG3/Lumia 720.

    If it was a choice between the SGS3 and Nexus 4, trust me, you'd want the SGS3. The Nexus 4 is a huge mistake on so many points that I don't think that LG should have released it. The battery life is one of the worst between all Android based devices (of all time). If you're considering Android, i'd give the upcoming HTC One with a clean Android install a further look.
    But it it was a choice between the SGS3 and 720 and you'd not have anything against WP8, you should go for the 720. The overall quality of the SGS3 is quite flimsy in comparison (and also a bit boring and repetitive, but everyone's taste is different).
    Also maybe give the upcoming HTC One with a pure/vanilla Android installation a further look. It's already got quite a decent battery life with SenseUI, so it would probably also be quite decent without that.
