    I purchased my 720 back in May 2013. What I don't understand is that my phone HAS a compass. And Here City Lens came pre-installed. And Amber came much later. There was another WPCentral user Nitin who claimed that after he got his screen replaced, his phone wouldn't install Here City Lens.

    Now here is what I don't understand. Why would some 720 have compass and other won't?

    Cyan lumia 720 bought in January 2014. Compass is there and city lens also working. Try downloading some compass app/ insider and check what they say.

    Gaurav i went to nokia care yesterday .... they formatted my phone twice , still after that same issue. Then i talked with other 720 users there, they both had compass in their devices.
    what they are telling me is that its just a software incompatibility thats why phone is not finding compass in it. they suggest me to wait for new update.
    I questioned them that if its a software issue then it should be in all L720, why only mine.
    So now i m thinking that i will wait for few days then i will give my phone to nokia care again. so they will send this phone to further.
    your views on that?

    I'm quite sure its not a software defect. If it were, it would have been fixed by a hard reset. Since you did it a couple of times, I'd suggest you to take it to Nokia Care and get your device replaced.
