Nokia Lumia 730 certainly looks and feels great. The Windows Phone 8.1 platform is way ahead of its previous iteration both in terms of looks and functionality. While Android users may argue about the low end specifications and features, it must be noted that Windows Phone 8.1 runs spectacularly smooth and feels fluid even on low/mid range phones.
