With the selfie mania on the rise especially among smartphone users, their secondary cameras are being given importance too. In this race, one of the Indian market’s favorite brands Nokia is launching its new smartphone, the Lumia 730. After the popularity of Lumia cameras, the new owner Microsoft has come up with its latest Lumia 730 smartphone, with a 5MP wide angle secondary camera. So, we decided to present the first look of this ‘Selfie Phone’… (At least that’s what Nokia says!)
As the tag suggests, the Nokia Lumia 730 has its own ‘Selfie’ app inbuilt. So, there is no necessity of downloading other photo apps anymore. This app not only provides effects like brightness and filters but is also upgraded with the feature of augmenting a particular aspect in a picture, like darkening the color of a person’s eyes.
The Nokia Lumia 730 has a primary camera of 6.7 MP. A display size of 4.7 -inch with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and 312 ppi pixel density adds to the experience of viewing things better. The AMOLED capacitive touchscreen comes with 16M colors and is protected by Corning Gorillla Glass 3. The Nokia 730 is built on a Snapdragon 400 quad core-A7 processor of 1.2 GHz and Adreno 305 for graphics.
The new Nokia 730 runs on Windows 8.1 OS and is backed up by a 1 GB RAM. Along with it comes storage of 8 GB internal memory, which is expandable up to 128 GB. To make it more trendy and peppy, you can get it in colors like Orange and Green, like the other Lumias. Due to the persistent complaints from Lumia smartphone users about battery, the new Lumia 730 is supplied with a high capacity Li-ion battery of 2,220 mAh. Also, the 2,220 mAh battery can last for up to 22 hours talk time and approximately 25 days under standby mode. So, no need to carry your charger all the time!
For attracting its buyers, a lurching bait of 15 GB+ of One Drive cloud storage is provided free with the Nokia Lumia 730 handset. All this is in the new Lumia 730 along with its Dual Sim feature which allows its users to shift between two SIMs according to their needs.
All this is fine, but there is one thing that is missing in the Lumia 730 and that is something we do not like. This Selfie Phone does not have a camera shutter key! The bottom line – Go for the Lumia 730 if you are fine with taking selfies without a shutter key!
