Both are very affordable handset. Nokia Lumia 720 vs Lumia 520, two low-cost Windows Phone 8 devices comparison makes an interesting reading

By Abdul Vahid V

The second line of Lumia series seems to be doing well in global markets when compared to the original series. Nokia's projected plan to add more devices to the lineup – the Lumia 928 and 925 – itself gives testimony for the success of the series. Better performance of Windows Phone 8, rather than its previous version Windows Phone 7.5, may be the primary reason for Lumia second series' good sales. Plus, there is one more central factor working, to say the presence of more choices under various budgets.

To have more devices under different price ranges seems to one of the finest reasons that lead to the success of a mobile platform. Android continues to reign over the mobile world, because it features a lot of varieties in hardware with products from all key mobile vendors in the world. The same works as the key factor that lets Samsung be the world's top mobile maker, which produces diverse handsets for all budget groups and geographical areas.

Here Nokia's new Lumia series is on the way to cater to the needs of all kind of customers out in market. First we had only two handsets, the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, respectively a top-end and lower-end models as you can guess it from their names. The Finnish mobile vendor later expanded the line to yet a cheap model called the Lumia 620. In another phase, two more budget models were added, the Lumia 720 and a super economical Lumia 520. Here we are up to make a review of the major differences between these two new low-cost Lumia phones.

Lumia 720 Vs 520
Before heading to a detailed specs showdown, we would like to compare the price of these two low-cost and stylish Nokia Windows Phone 8 handsets. The Lumia 520 is the cheapest Windows Phone 8 phone that you can grab from market today; it is priced at around $225 and carriers sell it for a few bucks on two year data contract. By the way, its elder sibling the Lumia 720 is priced at around $330, and is also available from many carriers. Now go ahead to see what differences the Lumia handsets have.

Display screen is one of the main areas where the Lumia phones differ mostly as the lower end 520 is sporting a 4-inch display and the 720 having a bit larger 4.3-inch display. The former one packs a 16M-color IPS LCD display of WVGA resolution, while the latter one has a ClearBlack IPS LCD screen of the same WVGA resolution.

When it comes to camera, the 520 has a moderate 5MP autofocus camera with 720p@30fps video recording; it is when its brother mounts a better 6.1MP autofocus sensor with super-fast F/1.9 lens and LED flash, which can also grab video at 720p@30fps. But, making the huge difference, the 720 has a 1.3MP front facing camera enabling it friendly for video chat.

Apart from these things, there is little difference between the new Lumia phones. They both get juice for performance from 1GHz dual-core Krait processor that encases a Qualcomm MSM8227 chipset, an Adreno 305 GPU and 512MB of RAM. In common, the devices feature Wi-Fi, 8GB internal memory, microSD slots, GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support, Xbox Live integration and more. But, the 720 boasts NFC support and digital compass over its young brother.

Verdict
Which one do you think is better of these two Lumia phones? It may be up to you. Both devices actually have the basic features as the same – from its software to processor. The things that make the Lumia 720 pricier are its larger display, better camera, front camera, NFC support and more. Thus, Lumia 520 becomes a nice option for someone, who wants not a front facing camera, NFC and a larger display screen.
