Display and Design

The display of these three models are similar in some ways but very different in others. For example the three have a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels but their sizes vary. The Nokia Lumia 620 is the most compact and has a screen of 3.8 inches , then of the  Nokia Lumia 520 with a panel of 4 inches and wider the Nokia Lumia 720 with screen 4.3 inches . They also carry a system that improves sensitivity, known as Super Sensitive and ability to handle the phone with gloves posts. We note that the Nokia Lumia 620 and Nokia Lumia 720 have the system ClearBlack that increases contrast and much deeper blacks played, the result is very sharp images and good visibility in any situation, even outdoors in bright sunlight.

Nokia usually reserve their most elegant and sophisticated designs for high-end and let the more affordable range Flaunt a more fun and relaxed . This strategy applies to the Nokia Lumia 620, which has a more rounded shape and is more compact, but both the  Nokia Lumia 520 as the  Nokia Lumia 720 have an appearance of sharp corners which is a little more serious, though the range of colors is very wide and striking in all three cases. All three are moving in a similar weighting with a few grams of difference. The Nokia Lumia 620 is the most compact of the three, followed by the Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 720 then is the widest but nevertheless still very manageable.

Power, memory and autonomy

New tie in the power section. Although three different computers are, typically bet Nokia similar components in their intermediate end terminals. In this case we speak of a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core, at a frequency of one gigahertz and 512 Mb of memory RAM . Thanks to the power of the processor and the fluidity of the Windows Phone 8 platform three offer a user experience very smooth and no slowdowns whatsoever.

The storage capacity is also repeated in the three cases. The internal fund is eight GB, enough to store a lot of files, but can be expanded via the memory card slot microSD up to 64 GB extra, with this we could use the phone as if it were some kind of hard drive portable. What’s more Nokia has included a free subscription to Skydrive , Microsoft’s cloud where we have available  seven Gb more.

The autonomy of the battery is an important aspect in a smartphone and here stands the Nokia Lumia 720 . This model comes with a battery of 2000 milliamps which ensures an autonomy of more thanthirteen hours in use and up to 520 hours on standby . Meanwhile the Nokia Lumia 520 has a battery of 1430 milliamps offering a duration of more than nine hours in use and 360 hours standby , the Nokia Lumia 620 has a stack of 1300 milliamp power and lasts almost ten hours use and 330 hours standby.

Finally let’s talk about price , one of the points that we consider when choosing a phone. The  Nokia Lumia 620 is already on sale for 236 euros in free format, the other two will not hit stores until next monthin April but their prices are already confirmed. The Nokia Lumia 720 will cost 250 euros and the Nokia Lumia 520 only 140 euros.
