    I'm looking to buy a WP for about 120$ and I'm undecided between the Lumia 720 and the Lumia 630.

    The Lumia 720 has a better camera, good battery life, glance screen.
    The Lumia 630 has a quad-core which has a performance comparable to the 1020, bigger screen.

    The cons of the 630 are mainly the camera and lack of glance screen and front-facing camera, while the con of the 720 IMO is basically the performance (I currently have a 520 with 8.1 GDR1 and the action center is not smooth, animations stutter all the time, loading...,resuming...).

    What are your opinions? Which phone should I buy?
    The Lumia 730 is out of question.

    I would get the 720 definitely.
    but why? battery is superior (although sealed), since both have 512 MB RAM, i don't hold them as very different in terms of apps and performance, although there probably is one. The camera is quite good, definitely better than the 630's, and it has a camera button.
    I love glance and double-tap-to-wake, and I need at least the option to have Qi charging.
    I think its more compact too.

    720 definitely, its significantly better than the 630. The only plus point the 630 has is its slightly faster processor.

    The gulf in camera quality between the two is massive, especially in low light.

    Also the usable screen on the 720 is actually very slightly larger than the one on the 630, as 0.25 inches are taken up by the on screen buttons, making the usable screen size 4.25" on 630 vs 4.3" on the 720.

    It's worth remembering that the 720 has an ambient light sensor and a proximity sensor. The 630 doesn't. That may seem like a small thing, but I have to manually adjust the brightness of my 630's screen several times a day, and would never buy a phone that doesn't have that feature again.

    if they were the same price, I would go with the 720 every time.
