Battery and storage
Nokia has equipped the 720 with a 2000mAh battery it claims will last for 13.4 hours 3G use from one charge. The 720 also features wireless charging technology, though users will have to shell out more money to get an special backplate to take advantage of the feature.
Testing the device, we found that the battery, didn't come close to matching Nokia's 13.4 hours claim.
Constantly looping video on the 720, we found the battery died after about six hours. However, with more regular use the battery life was on a par with most other similarly sized smartphones, generally breaking past the day or day and half usage mark before needing a charge.
The 720 comes with a rather sparse 8GB of internal storage that can luckily be upgraded to a maximum of 64GB using the device's Micro SD card slot.
The 720 is a decent smartphone that on the whole succeeds in bringing some of the innovations seen in the top end Nokia Lumia 920 to the mid-range price bracket.
This means there is a lot to like about the Lumia 720, with it carrying all the business-friendly features of Windows Phone 8 with the added bonus of Nokia's own location services.
However, featuring the same processor and memory as the far cheaper 620 the device doesn't offer stellar performance for the cost.
Still, for users looking to test the Windows Phone water, the 720 is a very good entry level option for businesses.
