Build and Design

The Lumia 730 is 8.7 mm thick, but is quite light. It weighs 130 grams and feels quite comfortable. In addition, the device has a 4.7 inch 720p display, which is in-line with the price point.

The front camera is what this smartphone is all about. The Lumia 730 has 5MP a 24 mm wide angle camera on the front, which allows you to cover more area while taking selfies.

Rear Camera

The 6.7 MP rear camera on the Lumia 730 might feel a little under spec'd in terms of the megapixel count, we shall reserve our judgment on the rear camera till we get our review out. But, do remember, the 730 is all about the front camera!

Bezels

The Windows Phone OS again makes the 720p display look vibrant and colorful. It looks good enough for a device in this price range. The device has on-screen buttons for home, back and search though, which makes us question as to why Nokia didn't cut the size of the bottom bezels.

Gloss

The Lumia 730 is offered in glass and matte finish. Nokia claims to have given the gloss backs a special anti-fingerprint treatment to avoid those smudges. We shall be testing this claim very soon.
