    820 is perfectly right for you,better hardware and display than 720, better camera than both 720 and 1320, and costs in between both :)

    yeah I always forget about the 820...its a very underrated phone...don't know about its battery back up though...and I didn't like its looks when buying 720...but I should have bought 820 ...that was indeed a mistake...btw I am not making any case for 1320 coz i know nothing is stand out about it except for its sheer screen size and battery and the price point..basically I just want any person to buy any phone with at least 1 gb ram for better experience and future proofing...

    I've used a 720 before upgrading to a 925 last month. For me, it was a very capable phone. What I miss the most is the battery life - 2 days with Whatsapp running 24/7 is nothing sort of amazing. If you don't play games/apps that require 1GB of RAM and don't mind waiting for a bit for apps to load, then go for it.

    Lumia 720 doesn't have good maps, as it runs here drive, not here drive+.

    the difference between HERE drive and drive+ is that drive+ gives turn by turn navigation in all countries covered by HERE, while HERE Drive gives navigation in only one country- you get navigation only for the country of which you put in the sim card in your phone, and not for any other country

    Mate, what are you on about? Maps for all Nokia devices are the same. And as mpt15 mentioned the only difference between Here Drive and Here Drive+ is the country limitation. I use both the 920 and 720. It may come to a surprise to many that I actually use the 720 as my main phone. I use the 920 mainly for games and photographs. For quick photos I still use the 720 which is no slouch.

    Since you've mentioned your requirements, the 720 does fit the bill. As for the 820, its a very good device. But with a 1650 mAh battery, it doesn't have a great battery back up as the 720. On a recent 700 KM road trip, I had navigation turned on the whole time with battery to spare at the end of the trip. Also the 820 not as sleek as the 720. But its quite a cute phone itself. But please note that the although the 820 has 8.7 MP camera, its not a Pure-view Camera. So not as good as the 920. The prices will be higher than the 720.

    Well after reading all these valuable comments from all my friends.. i choose to buy L720.
    now question is from where i should buy .. from market (18850) or from internet (snapdeal) in 16550.
    i m just thinking that why there is so much difference between its prices.
    i m afraid if they are selling me bad piece of mobile.

    its not a question .. but just wants to discuss

    Go ahead and hope you like your 720 and enjoy that camera...i think you should buy it from official Nokia Store....though i don't have much experience in on line shopping specially for mobiles..but they do have good return and exchange policies...

    Buy it through fk. Its 16300. You should bought it earlier at 14k .. But you can wait, keep following fk and amazon.in price trends. Take the best deal forward. Online buying is safe but make sure its from a reputed dealer with good feedback

    Hey don't believe others.I think lumia 720 is better than 820 miles apart.it has bad camera.nd also bad battery the moment u connect to internet it will drain like anything.nd also it does not lock 3G at all .I bought it for 21209 from amazon india.I made the worst mistake. Buy only lumia 720 not 820. Plz avoid lumia 820 it is the worst battery backup device which u cannot enjoy.regret not purchasing lumia 720 or other android. Some are just misleading u don't fall into the trap and buy 820.It is device only for calling and messaging.not for browsing or taking pictures. The recent black update killed its camera in low light.it is now yet another mobile with disappointing camera.go for only 720/920/925.

    Where ever you decide to buy, try to avail this offer. You will get 20 GB of free space in SkyDrive for one year; regardless of where you buy it from. As long as its new. I'll PM you if I come along a good trustworthy deal online.

    I think you must have just gotten a bad 820. I have had one for the past seven months and have had none of the problems you stated. I get over two days of battery life and since Black/GDR3 was installed my pictures are better than ever. Mine has the wireless recharging rear cover and with its 64GB SD card puts the 920/925 to shame as far as storage. Not that anything is wrong with the 720/920/925 but the 820 is one of the most versatile phones on the market. It was never promoted by Nokia/Microsoft and got lost in the 920 promotion. Too bad, I plan on keeping mine for quite awhile. Lets not forget it has a removeable battery,, and LTE also. I don't think the 720 has LTE.

    Sadly LTE in India is only limited to Metros. At that the network isn't consistent. So mostly it switches between LTE and HSPA+. So users aren't really able to take full advantage of the LTE bandwidth.

    820 has LTE capable hardware. India doesn't have LTE.

    And to the OP, don't get the 720 now, if you have a choice wait a few months.

    Just adding that the 820 has an 8mp camera, still good, but isn't a Carl Zeiss camera (I do believe it is still a PurView one though, not 100% sure).

    Pureview but not Carl Zeiss? How is that possible? If it's having Pureview,the it must definitely be a Carl Zeiss lens.....
