    Hello,
    i'm really not sure from buying this phone or buying lumia 625
    because i read that there is some issues unlike lumia 625

    if i buy one of these phones i won't be able to replace it for 1.5 year at least

    so what about lumia 720 issues is it alot?
    will this issues be solved at wp8.1?

    Hey and welcome to WPCentral forums.
    Lumia 720 is a great windows phone from Nokia. I am not sure what issues you are talking about. If you want big screen then go for lumia 626 else if you want good camera , great battery life then go for lumia 720. Lumia 625 does not support glance screen where as your lumia 720 does support Nokia glance screen.

    I'm using a 720 and the experience so far has been very good. I did have a problem with the camera, but Nokia replaced within an hour and returned it. After that no major problems at all. They are a few minor glitches though, it restarts atleast once a day and does freeze up sometimes (Not Often though). All in all it's a pretty decent phone. Major drawback is the RAM. Only 512MB. Not an issue with normal usage.

    I use a 720 and have had no major issues. The design of the handset itself is excellent for its price. If I could go back in time I wouldn't change my decision to purchase it. The only drawback is the 512mb RAM. If it had 1GB it would be perfect. But this isn't a major problem. I've been very happy with it.

    Edit: Just want to add that I did suffer from some restarting issues too, but this has stopped completely since I installed the 8.1 developer preview.

    I'm using a Lumia 720 for the last 3 months. Everything is ok for me. I believe 512MB only matters according to your kind of use. If you're more gamer, go to 1GB device.

    Last month I brought my L625. So far i statisfied with that phone but I don't really wan't this phone from the start actually I'm looking for 720. After ask 6 diffrent retailer they say it has been pulled about 2 month ago and not shipped since then. Too bad :(

    If you can get 720 go for it. It support wireless charging with special charging pad unlike my 625. It got better camera glance screen and more.

    I'm a Lumia 720 user.. Been using it since almost a year now.. Yes, I would buy it again..

    Certainly beats L625 in ergonomics, performance and battery life.. No major issues so far..

    Go for 720..

    I have been using lumia 720 for a year and i am very happy. Its fast and smooth, i don't do heavy games. For all popular apps, it runs smoothly without issue.
    The camera is good, slim design, clear black technology, i think its the best money can buy for mid range phone. The design is awesome, i reckon its better than 920.

    so you guys think all hanging/freezing issues is from apps i install not from the phone?

    Not always. For instance, I know for a fact that my memory card is corrupted. It causes my phone to crash only when running specific apps.

    i am using lumia 720 since january2014 and till now i dint faced any problems,lags, and above mentioned problems at all even after upgradtion to 8.1 no problems at all,battery life is awesome,also using a 64gb class 10 strontium micro sd card and no issues at all.with windows 8.1 you have the ability store and move apps to SD cards which is cool for me coz i downloaded heavy games like asphalt8,GTA-san andreas,modern combat 4,spiderman,raymen fiesta,subway surfers,temple run 2,temple run brave,dungeon hunter,angry birds,real stell, starfleet war,monsters university( cracked) and some 512 mb ram games,and all are working fine no problems at all, just game starting time is 2-3 seconds late than 1GB ram phones,but thats ok. also you get nokia's trademark clear black display,sunlight redbility,gorilla glass 2,front and rear cameras r awesomeand belive me when you'll go to the store see both 720 and 625 side by side you will immeidetly notice the difference, i mean the display quality, and what 625 has to offer a 4.7inch screen,4g( i dont think u gona use 4g soon),and a 5 mp camera? come on man! if u gona buy 720 then i might wanna sugggest u add some 1,1500 rs more for lumia 820,u will have 1gb ram with 8mp camera with super amoled display,and u can run every game possible in windows phone.

    Got mine in June last year and haven't come across any problem whatsoever. Ok, so I don't play any games but use the phone for just about everything else. No hanging, shut downs or rebooting. Battery life is awesome and the wireless charging a big plus. all in all I am very satisfied.....Still on 8 and waiting for the official release of 8.1 before downloading....
