    Yeah I really think you should go for the Lumia 1320 its in theory the most future proof Lumia it has 1gb of ram so all apps are there with a monstrous battery and a great canvas for games and media, no way the 720 is a better option ( had it and just sold it today I needed the cash)

    If you're into photography 720 is a better option. I haven't used my dslr since I bought my 720.

    If i may.
    The best Phone is the one who sooth the needs of the user, any thing more is just a waste of money.
    If the user is not in for ( heavy ) gaming, why then the 1 or 2 gb of ram?
    If the user is not in to photo's why then a 20 or a 40 mp cam?
    If the user content with a 4" inch screen then why a 6".

    He asked for a future proof handy, wel the truth is that al lumia's gets update til 8.1, the rest is based on rumors and speculation and cant be stated by anyone.
    Two years of udates, not excactly because there are two kinds of updates, the ones from Nokia and the ones from MS.
    As soon if MS going to push the Wp 9x its endex for the updates from Microsoft unles your Phone suports it ( and that has not necessarily to do with ram ).
    Nokia on the otherhand wil keep on updating until Microsoft decides otherwise ( there the same compagnie ).

    Resumé, the 720 has the same chance as any other Phone because no one can tel what the future brings.
    And what if MS or Nokia pulles the plug, nothing happends, only your phone stays the way it is,
    and makes that a bad choiche, no not really because you buy a phone as it is and not what it may become.
    The software or apps will keep on comming in the store and continuing updating them selves ( if the developers chooses to do so ).
    And believe me, only a few developers create apps who uses a lot of ram, because the moneymaking market is stil below the 1gb of ram.
    It's Always a gamble, but if you are happy with a 720 then go for it.



    An old Greek fylosofer once said ( i believe it was Socrates ) "There is alway's a better phone".

    As long if the driving force of MS is that it can be running on lowspecs phones i would not be worried.
    Most people compare it to the specsrace like the Droid phones.
    Hell some phones have better specs then my laptop.
    But MS is building his oses lighter so it can be runned on lower spec phones
    and more and more people are choosing for the cheaper models.
    Its al about making money and its better to sell 15 cheap phones than 1 highend ( look at Samsung )
    The ram is going to be an isue but not before 9x is seeing it's first daylight or 9x his first update.
    But your guess is as good as mine.

    Its not actually all about games and apps availability and the updates...RAM effects the core functions of the phones...and higher the amount of it results in better performance ...better speed...better multitasking...lesser app crashing...and one should note the direction Nokia took with 525...I think that indicates the things that are coming...

    True. Ram helps in multitasking. And if a display 720p or above it requires 1gb or more ram. Nokia will not make any 512mb ram devices. You can clearly see a rapid change. Lumia 525 and 1320 are great examples and more to come. And many features of windows 8.1 will be exclusive to 1gb ram devices. Some great heavy graphic games always require ram to render graphic engine.

    Agreed. The general trend moving forward is more 1 GB devices. But this is also because its quite difficult to optimise apps for 512 MB RAM devices. Subway surfers and Temple Run 2 are good examples. With more 1GB devices in the market, there will be less dev effort in making newer, better apps. For any company making apps, less dev effort= more apps.

    Certainly agree with u. Am not a hardcore gamer nor a photographer. Basic games can be played in L720 and camera quality is same as 8mp camera. It basically does the job. Its good phone not great though,,, I am using L720. I'll switch to another phone when WP9 lumia phones are released.

    You all looking at yourself what you need.
    But that was not the question, he asked "is it wise to buy a 720 ( for his needs )".
    If the O.p is not in for gaming, he doesnt need that amount of ram.
    The trend is as it is, faster, bigger = better.......
    But you don't need a Ferrari if you never drive faster then 80

    If i would make a choise for myself i would say go for a 6".
    i just want is a sliderphone with a real keyboard, 6" clearblack screen, blackcoated, waterproof alluminum body with the camera of the 1020 optic zoom, and with enougt ram and cpu that it can handles raw pictures like a "normal"camera, with a internal storage of 64 or 128 Gb completed with a Gps and with infrared capabilitys.
    But that's not going to happend any day soon, so i have to settle for les.

    As a person who owns a phone with 512 Mb for ram, theres a need for caution. The phone slows up TREMENDOUSLY over time, and a simple forum with a lot of pictures causes the browser to crash. So yeah, not talking about support but long term use

    I got myself a little 520 ( aprox 6 a 7 months ) and dont recognize those problems.
    Had only one crash, and that whas my own fault.

    If you don't have problems in other apps that uses wifi like browser or mail then it must be the app store server.

    Nokia and Microsoft need to cater to the budget segment more ... Just have a look around the buzz created by MOTO G which comes at a low price then 720 but has specs higher than that . Only if 720 had 1 gb ram it would have been more awesome experience ... Been using it since december , its my first smartphone so i am just a casual user but still i can feel the slowness caused by "resuming" window before any app starts .. Just hoping nokia would launch a upgrade to 720 which keeps the look , design and feel same but is more speced up ..

    after the black update you will get glance 2.0 ; double tap to unlock phone , nokia camera beta and nokia storyteller app
    try sysapp pusher to update your system settings apps to get all the benefits of Lumia black update , did you noticed now you can close application in multitasking windows(by long pressing the back button ) , you will be greeted with set of cards(open applications) , now you can just click on 'X' button on top right of each card to close the app.to check if you have black update or not :- go to settings:- extras+info , it should be Lumia black(in crimson colour) , or go to about -> more information
    os version should be 8.0.10521.155
    firmware version : - 3051.40000.1349.0009( this may be slightly different due to model differences )
