Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM and Lumia 735
Nokia is another manufacturer trying to attract fans of "selfies" with the new Nokia Lumia 730 Dual SIM and Lumia 735 Windows smartphones.
The key selling point here is the 5 megapixel wide angle front-facing camera which should ensure high-quality self portraits. On the back is a 6.7 megapixel sensor with an LED flash and Zeiss optics. The display is a 4.7" ClearBlack OLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.
Cameras and screen size aside, the Lumia 730 and 735 are very similar in specification to the Nokia Lumia 830, with a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU with 1GB of RAM, but only 8GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot. All the usual Lumia smartphone feature are here, plus built-in wireless charging, NFC and an FM radio. The operating system is Windows Phone 8.1 with the new Lumia Denim update.
The Lumia 730 Dual SIM is (as you might guess) and dual-SIM 3G device, the Lumia 735 is a single-SIM LTE version, but otherwise the differences between the two are tiny. Unlike some recent high-end Lumia devices, the 730 and 735 use the more traditional all-plastic design.
Both handsets are slated to be available this month, with the 735 retailing for around €219 before tax and subsidy, and the 730 coming in at €199. That offers pretty good value for money, but there is fierce competition in this sector that these Lumias might find hard to beat.
