Nokia Lumia 720 Camera Sample Shots

Nokia Philippines sent us a loaner unit of the Nokia Lumia 720 to play around with for a few weeks. This phone is touted to have very good optics with the camera despite the mid-range pricing (Php14,590). The shooter has Carl Zeiss optics, 6.7-megapixels, and F1.9 Aperture for improved light capture. All those features sound good on paper but how does it perform in real world use? We took it out for a spin during the weekend and boy did we walk away a believer. Check out the sample photos below.
