Lumia Black now available in India for the Nokia Lumia 720

Lumia 720 Lumia Black

Two days ago the Lumia Black update for the Nokia Lumia 520 started rolling out in India. That phone is the most popular in India with over 43.3% of the Windows Phone marketshare. The second most popular, the Lumia 720, comes in at more than 12.7% marketshare. So odds are if you aren’t rocking a Lumia 520 in India, you probably have a Lumia 720. If you have a Lumia 720 you should go check for a phone update because Lumia Black is now rolling out.

Tips are flying in that the Nokia Lumia 720 for India is picking up the Lumia Black update. Remember our review of the Lumia 720? Long story short its design is near perfect and we love the Lumia 720. So we’re very happy to see those get the Lumia Black update.

The update brings a handful of new things specific to Lumia devices. It also sneaks in Windows Phone 8 Update 3 for the device. It also brings double-tap to wake, a feature that we’re sure a handful of you will appreciate.

Go grab the update for your Lumia 720. Then hit up the Nokia Lumia 720 section in the forums to talk amongst other owners.

Thanks for the tips everyone! Enjoy the update!

Lumia Black now available in India for the Nokia Lumia 720

almost around 1 hour

Downloading, installing,restart, actuall install and then migrate process about 10 minutes.

Bad experience after black update. Sometimes calls are dropping, many a time i am receiving messages from network provider regarding missed calls. I am observing the working of my l720. It even switched off for a while. It dint allow me to start agin. After long press of lock key and volume down it then switched on. Any suggestions dear friends?

The reason behind a delayed 620 update launch is probably something to do with Update 3 features( most being screen related) being optimised to AMOLED screens on a 512mb ram device. Generally IPS screens are more common so inter model porting is easier.

Please share your experience with nokia black. Is camera quality increased.i mean sharpness in images. Update is not working on mobile netwok 3G. So i have to wait till morning.

Hi,
I have updated my L720 to black, but I did not find any improvement in camera clarity. What you feel after black update?

I have a Nokia 1520 so I already have everything. But still missing out on the update excitement! So much for early adoption!:P But this phone is absolutely marvellously fantabulous! Plus its prepared for the future with better specs,so Windows phone 8.1 here's looking at you!

and just like that the lumia 620 was forgotten....THE ONLY WP8 NOKIA THAT HASNT TASTED THE BLACK EXPERIENCE...tempted to switch

Today morning I updated my 720 with the Black update. It took just a little over 1 hour,but everything is perfect. All the update modules applicable to 720 were downloaded without a glitch and post the update, everything works just fine. Especially the new Nokia Camera and Mix Radio. In fact, my L720 has become more, say "crispy", but that could be just me.

I set up a Wifi hotspot at home without spending a penny :-). Using my HP AIO desktop PC, Tata Photon 3G and a free app called 'VirtualRouter'

Hai dude could you suggest me how to get black update ... When I'm updating mine (720) nothing happens simply displays 'ur ph is up to date' ....

Hey dude when im looking to update my L720 ,it isn't and showing 'ur ph is up to date ' wat does it mean.. Do i have still wait... Eagerly waiting for black update south india...
