Adieu to the Nokia Lumia 720 #I

'Mobile photography, Part #I of my Auld Lang Syne to my old and trustworthy Nokia Lumia 720'

This will be Part I of a three-part post where I say adieu to my old and trustworthy Nokia Lumia 720. It has been quite a while since I began using the consumer grade Nokia Lumia 720, about five years ago, and the phone is now showing severe sign of old age. The battery does not keep its charge for more than a few hours, the screen is cracked and is taped over with a couple of small camera LCD screen protectors.

The Nokia Lumia 720, together with its Windows Phone 8 OS, was arguably the slickest mobile phone system available then and was super-desirable. Though it came with only a decent display (low on the pixels), it does have a very competent 8MP rear camera that makes up for other shortcomings and was good enough for me to enjoy an archive of high-quality images.
