(TECH) The Nokia Lumia 730 is Your Next Best SELFIE Phone!

Glad to have attended the Pre-Halloween Party last week at the 71 GRAMERCY in Makati and met good ol friends there! It was a night of booze and never ending chitchat plus selfie all over as the Nokia Lumia 730 was launched and introduced as the Selfie Phone of the night! Im not really a fan of doing selfies, but holding this one myself convinced me to do more!

Wait, Let me introduce you this phone. Here is how The Nokia Lumia defined in 55 seconds!

Here is the Nokia Lumia 730 Dual Sim Specification:

Memory: 1GB RAM, 8 GB internal user memory; 15 GB. (Note that there is also a OneDrive cloud storage and micro SD expandable up to 128 GB). Its display: 4.7” HD OLED (1280 x 720, 16:9), 316 PPI, Curved glass (2.25D). I think I love how 4.7 competes with the size of some android phones in the Market, making it one of the nicest windows Phone to date!


Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926); 1.2 GHz quad-core processor.

Primary camera: 6.7 MP FF ZEISS, f/1.9, Full HD video with LED Flash. For its secondary camera, it has Full HD 5 MP wide angle (2596×1948) f/2.4, with Nokia Camera, Nokia Storyteller, Nokia Creative Studio, Lumia Selfie. Connectivity: NFC, A-GPS/GLONASS, BeiDou, plus WIFI. Its Battery is actually a removable 2220 mAh, exchangeable shell. At first I had a hard time removing the phone from its classy shell but it is manageable though. For me the Battery is the low point of this edition but I think this is everyone’s nightmare right. So still OK!20141107_142532

As I have said, this is the coolest Windows Phone 8.1 with live tiles and a world of apps. I love the green one so I chose the green unit that night. Gramercy is indeed covered with its wide-angle 5MP HD front-facing camera to capture more selfies. I got the chance to use this on skype call and it works better than what I am having now.

You can also connect for less and on your terms with smart dual SIM. And what is nice about this is that you can sync and share photos and any of your file content via OneDrive if you have a Microsoft account! Sleek, pocketable design with interchangeable covers!


The Nokia Lumia 730 is actually almost the same with Lumia 735, but the main difference is: Lumia 735 is LTE while 730 is 3G Dual Sim.

So back to that night, we were able to test the powerful features of Nokia Lumia 730. I got to meet some beautiful corporate ladies and slaves (as what they call themselves) including some of the local celebrities partying with us!
