Up close with the Nokia Lumia 720

BARCELONA, Spain--Of the four new phones Nokia announced at MWC, the Lumia 720 is the most advanced. Compared with the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 series, though, its features and price are still midrange.

Side view

I like that the Lumia 720 has a slimmer build. There are, of course, the usual button placements as well. The handset, which has a 4.7-inch ClearBlack display, is fairly large, but not as hulking or bulky as the 920.
