The phone features a range of back 'Shells' which will allow users to customize the look of their phone as well as adding functionality such as wireless charging (with the addition of a separate accessory case). A removable rear shell gives the device the benefit of easy replaceability (particularly in instances of damage). Action keys (volume, power and dedicated camera key) reside on the right, with a 3.5mm headphone jack mounted atop the device, and Micro-USB port at its base.
Its 4.3 inch display has a WVGA resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and an aspect ratio of 15:9.
- ClearBlack for improved outdoor visibility
- SuperSensitive display for easy use even with gloves, nails and the like.
- Screen protection provided by Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2.
Battery and charging
Supports wireless charging using an optional accessory cover. Also can be recharged physically using conventional wired power adapter or USB cable.
Uses a 2000 mAh capacity battery just as the larger Lumia 920 does and as a result has a longer battery life.
This is the first Nokia phone to replace Nokia Maps with the Here suite of navigation services such as Here Maps, Here Transit and HERE Drive, but it lacks HERE Drive+ unlike other second generation Lumia devices.
In January 2015, Microsoft released the Lumia Denim update for Nokia 720. The update fixes the bugs and adds new features to the phone.
