Reviews for the Microsoft Lumia 730

75% Nokia Lumia 730 Review
Source: Phone Arena English
The Nokia Lumia 730 lives up to the promise of being a great phone for those who like to take selfies. It’s not just that, though: with one of the best designs among its peers and an improved camera app it is a good phone overall. On the downside, Windows Phone just does not feel as snappy as Android does on a similar configuration, and you’d see apps loading too long too often. We’re also not perfectly happy with the default display color mode on the Lumia 730, which comes with overblown, unreal colors. Luckily, those who care about accurate colors have the option to fine tune the screen to their liking.

90% Nokia Lumia 730 Review: A Killer Mid-Range Smartphone
Source: Techtree.com English
These days, manufacturers use specifications to attract consumers. We are seeing octa-core processor and 3 GB RAM in sub 15k phones. Thankfully, rather than joining this mad specs race, the Lumia 730 focuses on the user experience. It won't top any benchmark tests, but it does offer features that are actually useful. The 730 boasts of an excellent screen, sturdy construction, unrivalled GPS navigation and two good cameras. For Rs 15,000, it's well priced too. Last but not the least, the handset fits perfectly in your hand, which is exactly how a mobile phone should be.

80% Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM Review: Ending on a High Note
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM is a polished smartphone. We would, in fact, go as far as to state that this phone is the best Windows Phone alternative to the dependable Moto G (Gen 2) (Review | Pictures). It has a pleasing design, good cameras, consistent overall performance and great battery life. We believe that Microsoft has a winner on its hands with the Lumia 730 Dual SIM.

76% Nokia's last hurrah

The Microsoft Lumia 730 does the job that it was built for very well and then some. The phone is not the best that you can expect, but it is still one of the better Lumia devices that you can buy right now. It has good cameras on the front and back and will fit users who use their phones for basic mails, social networking and of course, selfies.

Microsoft:

Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).


82.6%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
