Windows Phone is a struggling ecosystem no doubt but somehow companies are able to product good enough products the make the smartphone sell. It is easier to buy a Windows Phone at this date because all of them are almost the same and differ only by their specifications and not functionality. Nokia has been acquired by Microsoft and the Lumia 730 along with others will be the last roll out for them. Let’s look at one of the final products Nokia has ever made.
When you look at the Nokia Lumia 730, you easily can connect the similarity to the Nokia 820 and Nokia 920 design. It is built on the same exact design philosophy, only thinner and lighter and well slower as well. The shiny polycarbonate is of good quality and gives you a firm hold on the phone. What it does not provide is the wow factor with the build quality. The speakers are really loud but not extremely clear. To some all this in one word: Average.
Nokia Lumia 730 does have a really good display. You can see on the home page that the live tiles and their info text is really sharp. I actually think it is too clear to be true. But then you begin testing it with games and images to realize that the colours are washed off and even a tad pixilated. It does look beautiful but not perfect. Nokia Lumia 730 has a 4.7 inch 720p HD display. I think it is great for its price but not pretty compared to the best out there.
If there is something Nokia can do well, it is the camera for sure. With their tie up with Carl Zeiss, Nokia phones do have great cameras. Nokia Lumia 730’s camera is able to do something most phones fail when it comes to camera- creating a color balanced image. Nokia Lumia 730 has a 6.7 MP camera. It can take full HD video in good quality. The goodness of Nokia makes the camera UI very intuitive and if now, Windows Phone 8.1 has its brilliant integration in camera UI as well.
Nokia Lumia 730 runs on the Windows Phone 8.1. It does have some useful features but all of which are apps and can be found on either Android or iOS. The single thing that separates it from them is just the user interface. It surely is clean and the idea of live tiles is pretty amazing. The black or red or any monolithic color can get very gloomy at times.
Nokia Lumia 730 sums up well with the Snapdragon 400 processor with Qualcomm which is a 1.2GHz Quad Core one. It gives you 1 GB of RAM, all of which makes an accurately smooth phone. Internal storage is about 8GB but you can expand it to as much as 128GB. Nokia Lumia 730’s battery life can last you up to a good one day with full usage.
