Good: Design/Looks and Bright clours
Bad: Windows OS Freezes often
Comment: Got my hands on Lumia 720. Within two days of possession my Lumia 720 just went blank couple of times and the screen would freeze often. Went to the dealer to check my issue and to my surprise another Lumia 720 user was there to check on the same problem as mine.
I was using Android based S2 all teh while and decided to check on the Windows 8. I think its a bad decision. Handed over the faulty Lumia to the dealer and i have decided to go with Android based smartphone.
Windows is not there yet when it comes to mobile OS.
Good: Slick, clean OS
Bad: Nokia Drive is crippled on this model
Comment: You're right to say the 620 is better value. Another reason is that the 620 comes loaded with Nokia Drive Here+ which supports map downloads in multiple countries, whereas the 520 and 720 have vanilla Here that restricts you to maps in your original SIM locale. It's an important distinction if you plan to drive internationally as I do.
Good: Battery life, OS, decent price
Comment: Incredibly biased review. If you compare all the features against 620 why not mention it nearly has TWICE the battery. What's more it's a better phone so why 620 gets 4.5* and 720 3*?
It is a viable alternative to 920 and almost half price. Compared to 820 it also fares very well.
Good: can't think of anything off hand
Bad: Mainly the OS
Comment: I think the lack of apps is a real killer for WP, If you want the best games and latest apps then it has to be android or iphone
Good: the whole phone for a price like this
Comment: CNET wears the Android Quality Brand ha ha, so no matter what Nokia will make it will get bad and "biased" reviews.
